Maia Reficco in Workout Gear Shares a Selfie

Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 

Maia Reficco is showing off her post-workout glow. In a new social media post the Do Revenge star flaunts her amazing figure in workout gear, sharing the mirror selfie via her Instagram Stories. How does the up-and-coming actress approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 



Maia is a reader. She regularly shares photos of books that she is reading. One Harvard study published in Social Science & Medicine found that people who read books regularly had a 20% lower risk of dying over the next 12 years compared with people who weren't readers or who read periodicals. 



Maia indulges in self-care. One of her go-to methods is taking bathings. "wine in the tub!!!" she captioned a post. How can baths do your body and mind good? They have been linked to better sleep and even found helpful to minimize anxiety and depression. One recent study even found that they may even boast cardiovascular benefits.



Maia makes sure to get her steps in. Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.




Maia uses exercise to get into character. To prepare for her role of Noa in Pretty Little Liars she "started training a lot because I wanted to be more of an athlete," she told Schon. "I knew I wasn't going to turn into a track star like Noa, but I definitely started running. In fact, I generally started doing more Noa-like things just to get a sense of her reality and bring it into my life. For previous roles, I worked out just to gain the stamina that is required in big theater. However, in this case it was working out to gain some insight into her mind-set and also to gain her discipline. I think it was really important for me to be respectful and mindful in telling her story in the most respectful way that I could. I wanted it to be sincere and authentic. I actually did look into a lot of things that brought up hard topics in my own life and it all really resonated with me. It is all worth it when it comes to storytelling though."
