She Does Squats

One type of exercise that Patel likes to do is squats. Since she's got great legs, this method is clearly paying off. Patel posted this video on Instagram of herself doing squats with a weight. She captioned the video, "Been 40 days away from training , and the first thing I come back to is SQUATS." "To do a squat, stand with your feet slightly greater than shoulder-width apart and your toes pointing ahead. Slowly descend, bending through the hips, knees and ankles. Stop when your knees reach a 90-degree angle. Then return to the starting position. You'll feel tension in your legs and buttocks," says the Mayo Clinic.


She Lifts Weights

Patel posted this boomerang on Instagram of herself prepping to lift weights at the gym. She captioned it, "Mumbai .. after a long day at work finally at my happy place."

"I have always been a very positive person. My honesty and my positivity make me different from others. I don't come from a film background and it is altogether a new world for an outsider," she has said. "Some studies show that personality traits such as optimism and pessimism can affect many areas of your health and well-being. The positive thinking that usually comes with optimism is a key part of effective stress management. And effective stress management is associated with many health benefits. If you tend to be pessimistic, don't despair — you can learn positive thinking skills," says the Mayo Clinic.
