She Eats Foods Rich With Vitamins
"Eat lots of fruits, vegetables and foods that are rich in vitamins A, C and E. I recommend daily consumption of citrus fruits like oranges, kiwi and melon. And don't forget that guava has a lot more vitamin C than a common orange! And of course, drink plenty of water, as it helps keep your skin hydrated and balanced," she said, according to Quinceanera.com.
She Manages Her Anxiety
Leslie describes herself as a natural introvert who can sometimes feel anxious. "Because of what I do and just my personality I deal with anxiety sometimes and sometimes I feel a lot of pressure," she told the Well Being Trust. "I'm sort of naturally an introvert so when I have to do lots of events," she can get wound up. Her best friend Lisa is "someone who's usually there for me" and sometimes they just drive and talk and vent. Once they did that on their way to the beach and then, once there, "literally just said nothing for a good half an hour. And that's exactly what I needed at that moment." Her friend "validated" her "feelings."
Music Helps Her Mental Health
Grace sings all the time. "It really does change my mood. If I'm feeling down, I have a playlist for that, if I'm feeling happy, I have a playlist for that. It has a big part with how I'm feeling mentally"
Grace adds lemon to water and drinks it often. "Your body doesn't get water only from drinking water. Any fluid you drink will contain water, but water and milk are the best choices. Lots of foods contain water too. Fruit contains quite a bit of water, which you could probably tell if you've ever bitten into a peach or plum and felt the juices dripping down your chin. Vegetables also contain a lot of water — think of slicing into a fat tomato or crunching into a crisp stalk of celery," says Johns Hopkins.
Her Parents Help Keep Her in Check
Before In the Heights, Grace told Men's Journal: "My mom gives it to me straight. The cast and I have all been saying that we couldn't have even dreamt of being in this film. My parents have no idea what it means yet. They're like, "Oh, you're dancing and singing in a movie? OK. Why is it taking so long to come out?!"
