She Does Conditioning Exercises

Buswell tells Xpose that dancing isn't the only thing she does to stay in shape. "People always think, 'Oh, you do so much exercise, that must be enough', but with dancing, I'm so used to it that actually it genuinely doesn't do that much for me anymore," she revealed. "I condition with Pilates and yoga; they're my two favourite things that I do, and they go hand in hand with dancing. In dancing, you want long, toned muscles, not short, bigger muscles, so I find that those exercises really lengthen and tone at the same time."


She Works On Her Anxiety

Buswell tells Sustain Health that she does things to relax before going onstage. "I can honestly say I've had no anxiety at all, when [before] there would be times that I would get a little bit anxious. There are thousands of eyes watching you dance – and that can be a little bit overwhelming. But I've done all my breathing since starting this tour and I've not felt anxious out there once. I've just gone out and enjoyed every moment."


She Doesn't Compare Herself To Others

Buswell is open about her previous struggles with eating disorders and body image. She tells Sustain Health that one of the things she does to alleviate this is focus on herself. "I always just think about me, myself and I, and what my body needs in order for it to feel good. I'm always telling myself that we're all so different – so I don't need to look like anyone else but myself."


She Deals With Things Better

Buswell opened up about her struggles with an eating disorder on an episode of Freeze The Fear. She says that she still gets insecure, but she has a healthier approach to these feelings. "There's still that voice in the back of your head," she says. "I don't think it ever 100% goes away, but it's the way that I deal with it now that is so much stronger and healthier and better for me."


She Loves Produce

Buswell tells Sustain Health that she likes to buy fresh produce as much as she can. "One of my favourites is going to a market and buying really nice fruit and veg. To me, it's a form of self-care, because I enjoy the market and shopping for it, and I enjoy getting home, cooking it and making it."
