She Works Out
Archana regularly exercises. "Fitness time," she captioned a recent Instagram post of herself at the gym. Physical activity is anything that gets your body moving. Each week adults need 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity and 2 days of muscle-strengthening activity, according to the current Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.
Archana loves cycling, which is a great low-impact workout according to the Cleveland Clinic, great for building muscle, improving strength and flexibility, and improving balance. It can also boost mental health and help other health conditions, including arthritis.
She Looks to Others for Guidance
Archana isn't embarrassed to admit that she gets her best tips from other people. "I started observing people and started grooming myself. I would observe girls at parties or how they are walking. I learned how to do makeup by watching videos on YouTube. I got my hair coloured and got it straight," she told Times of India about how she has evolved her look.
Archana stays properly hydrated. According to the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine men should drink about 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids a day and women about 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of fluids.
Archana also loves to dance, a great workout for many reasons. Not only does it 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.
