She Cut Her Hair and Appreciates the "Simple Things"

"I cut all my hair off and now I feel like a brand new woman," Spears captioned her bikini video. "I made a smoothie, went into my yard, turned on some Prince and laid out … and then I put my hair up in a ponytail which made me look like Pebbles from The Flintstones and did some laundry!!! But honestly laundry is my favorite thing to do especially in the evening when the sun is setting … I think most women secretly love doing laundry !!! I'll be honest and say that since I've been on a break from the industry I realized it was the simple things I've missed the most !!!"


She Works Her Core


How did Britney train for videos like Slave 4 U? "We did somewhere between 750 to 1,000 variations of crunches a day. We would do intervals. We'd start off on the treadmill running, and then she'd go to the mat and do bicycle crunches, hitting the transverse abdominal wall, engaging the obliques," her trainer back then, Bobby Strom, told Life & Style. "So we'd do a combination of crunches and in between, we'd focus on light weight training. For instance, I'd have her do bicep curls, kickbacks for the triceps, and lateral raises."


She Drinks Smoothies

"Before you fill the blender, ask yourself a question about that smoothie," warns the Mayo Clinic. "Are you using it as a meal replacement, or are you having it as a beverage with your meal?" asks Mayo Clinic dietitian Kate Zeratsky. "If you're having it as a meal replacement, you want to make sure that it has the components of a meal." Add protein, for example. And: "Fruit is a great source of natural sugar, and you need not necessarily add extra sugar," adds Zeratsky. And add some veggies: "Smoothies, with their natural sweetness, are a great way to mask some of the bitter flavors of vegetables," says Zeratsky.


She Runs


"I run a lot," Britney revealed in one Instagram post. Hitting the trails or a treadmill is a great way to blast calories. According to Harvard Health, a 125-pound person running at 7.5 MPH can burn 375 calories in 30 minutes. And, according to science, running can help you build muscle, lower your risk of heart disease, improve your sleep, and even add years to your life. 


She Knows Taking Moments for Herself is Important


"Hi guys, just checking in with all of you who are concerned about me," she said in an Instagram clip in 2019. "All is well. My family has been going through a lot of stress and anxiety lately, so I just needed time to deal, but don't worry, I'll be back very soon." "I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that's happening is just making it harder for me," she continued. And: "You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and stand up for what I want!" she shared in the post. "Your love and dedication is amazing, but what I need right now is a little bit of privacy to deal with all the hard things that life is throwing my way. If you could do that, I would be forever grateful. Love you."
