She Works Out in the Morning
At 8:30am: "This is normally the time I give myself to work out," she wrote for Refinery29. "Whether it's on Zoom, doing a workout with my friend Ella in L.A. who leads a" great "workout class called Sculpt With Ella, or with my best friend Bunny who comes over to train me on days when I'm feeling super lazy and need someone to get me motivated, getting physical really starts my day off right. I also love to do yoga, Pilates, or strength training. I like to leave my cardio workout to dancing."
She Does High Intensity Training
Lipa also does quick workouts. "It's high-intensity interval training, but it's so quick, it's over before it's even started!" she said. They get her heart rate pumping.With this kind og training, "you'll burn more calories," says the Mayo Clinic. "The more vigorously you exercise, the more calories you'll burn — even if you increase intensity for just a few minutes at a time."
She Cooks to Nourish Herself
"I love cooking and being surrounded by my favorite people, though I also love ordering from the fantastic restaurants in my area" she wrote for Refinery29 during the height of the pandemic. "With all the running around I do for work, it's nice to come home, slow down, and connect with the food that nourishes my body and life."
She's Religious About Washing Her Face
"Once everyone leaves, it's time for a little self-care,'" she wrote for Refinery29. "I am religious about washing my face and doing my nighttime skincare routine every evening. Even when it's a rehearsal day and I'm not wearing makeup, it is so important to wash the day off. I also use this time to check in with myself and practice gratitude. The past year has been one for the history books, and I'm just so lucky to have fans who have been so supportive of me from the beginning."
She Cares for Her Mental Health
"My friends and I will wake up and set [up] a FaceTime date and do a workout together," she told Vogue. "It almost feels as though we're all doing it in the same place. That brings a little bit of normality and in some way makes things easier for sure." She also journals. "Get a piece of paper and write down what you're thinking, [it] doesn't even have to make sense, but I think it really helps."
