She Likes Yoga
She enjoys doing yoga when she's not taking a dance class. Yoga makes her more flexible and helps her reach her fitness and strength goals. It's the perfect low impact workout to practice that will prepare her for her performances. "A number of studies have shown that yoga may help reduce stress and anxiety. Yoga can enhance your mood and overall sense of well-being. Yoga might also help you manage your symptoms of depression and anxiety that are due to difficult situations," says the Mayo Clinic. "Practicing yoga may lead to improved balance, flexibility, range of motion and strength."
She Loves To Perform
Although there's not much out there about her specific workout routine, Billie loves to perform and dance. If you've seen her perform live or on TV she can often be seen running around on stage which can keep her healthy and fit. "When you start out on your run, your body goes through a transition: Your breathing may become heavy, and you might notice your pulse quicken as the heart pumps harder to move oxygenated blood to your muscles and brain," says Hopkins Medicine.
She Loves To Dance
In addition to bopping around on stage while performing and staying active, she actually likes to dance in a competitive form. Billie takes professional dance classes 3 to 4 times a week that are usually around 90 minutes or longer. "Dancing is a popular form of physical exercise and studies have show that dancing can decrease anxiety, increase self-esteem, and improve psychological wellbeing," says one study.
She Protects Her Body From Criticism
Billie Eilish hasn't been one to shy away from talking about body image and hiding that from internet trolls ready to judge her. She has shared her struggle with fans about her mental health journey and pressure to be thin. Wearing her signature loose fitting clothes (although, she strays from the look on occasions with gowns) took some of that pressure off her shoulders.
She's A Vegan
Like others in the field like Ellen DeGeneres and Miley Cyrus, Billie Eilish is vegan. Although veganism has been proven to have a lot of health benefits, Billie did it because she loves animals. She hasn't been shy when it comes to expressing her feelings about cruelty towards them. "The key to a healthy vegetarian diet, as with all diets, is to include a variety of foods. No single food can provide all the nutrients your body needs. It's especially important for older adults to be aware of their nutritional needs, since aging can increase the risk of nutritional deficiencies. Talk with your doctor or a registered dietitian about developing a healthy vegetarian eating plan that meets your needs," says the Mayo Clinic.
