Maris Racal in Two-Piece Workout Gear Hydrates

Here are her lifestyle habits.

Maris Racal is showing off her flat abs – in her workout clothes. In a new social media post the 26-year-old star of Pinoy Big Brother flaunts her chiseled midsection while chugging water. Her Instagram followers went wild over the photo. "wow 😍" commented one. "Pretty," added another. How does Maris keep herself in such great shape? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 




Maris starts the day by meditating. "Meditating is really important to me. I do it on a normal day. I do it before I start taping. I always think about the blessings and all the good things that have been happening," she told Philstar Global. "Of course, after I take it all in, I always think about what my mom says that, whatever we have right now, the material things, we just borrow it all, and that one simple thought always, always keeps me thankful for everything."


Running on the Beach

Maris is a runner. "If you know me I love to," she captioned a post of herself on the beach in her running shoes. According to the Mayo Clinic, running is great for cardiovascular health, muscle building, and weight loss. "For every mile run, the average person will burn approximately 100 calories," they say. 



Maris gets paid to dance, an effective and fun workout. "I can finally share this!! the official carelessly dance video is now up on my channel!" she captioned a post. Not only does dancing build strength and promote flexibility, but helps you lose weight and even promotes cardiovascular function. A 2016 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine determined that people who engaged in moderate-intensity dancing were 46 percent less likely to develop heart disease or die from it than non-dancers. In comparison, moderate-intensity walkers were just 25 percent less likely to suffer heart health issues.



Maris enjoys reading books when she has free time. "Library hangouts to sleep," she captioned a post. 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.



You can also find Maris going for walks. 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.



In her latest post, Maris demonstrates the importance of hydration. According to the Mayo Clinic, hydration is important for a variety of reasons. Water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues.
