Cindy recently opened up about her depression, which she has been dealing with for four years, to Sports Illustrated. "Mental health problems can feel very isolating," she said. "I know for a fact that when I am having an episode, it really feels like it's just me that's feeling that way—like I'm either broken or unlike the people around me. So I try to be open about it because I hope someone out there might identify with it and realize they're not alone."

She Journals

Cindy is a big fan of journaling. "I try to keep myself mostly in the same routine, so I usually journal every morning and I like to say my affirmations. Especially when you're doing something as vulnerable as a swimsuit shoot, I write my affirmations and I make sure that I remind myself that my body is not what everyone else wants it to be and that it's a blessing that I have a body that takes care of me and allows me to experience life. Just reminding myself to be thankful in every way and just accepting myself in whatever way I am is probably the one thing that I feel is the most important in order to prepare for something like this," she told Nylon.

She Dances

Cindy, an Alo Yoga fan, loves to dance, which helps build strength and promote flexibility, and helps you lose weight. And, according to a 2016 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine , it also promotes heart health. 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.

She Paddleboards

Cindy enjoys paddleboarding. The American Council on Exercise (ACE) agrees that paddle boarding is great for the core and also a great form of cardio. The water sport can burn an average of 385 calories for a 140 pound male and 436 for a female the same size, per a study conducted by Arizona State University.

She Paints

Cindy has a relaxing hobby. "I usually like to finish paintings in a few days, so if I start one I'll spend my whole day, or maybe even the week doing that. I've been painting since I was very young. I started because my mom would draw these little characters when she would tell me bedtime stories, and I would always want to recreate them," she told GQ.
