She Avoids Midnight Snacks

When Hurley snacks, she makes sure to do so before it gets too late. She revealed to E! News that one of her new healthy habits is giving up midnight snacks. "I always used to snack late at night because I was a little bit hungry before I went to bed. I stopped doing that now."


She Doesn't Work Out To Lose Weight

Hurley might have a slim figure, but she tells E! News that her weight is not important to her, especially when it comes to working out. Hurley says that she likes to exercise to feel good and have energy, rather than to drop pounds. "I like running around, so I don't feel like I need to be skinny, but I feel the need to be athletic and fit. That to me is the most important thing for people to do."


She Starts Her Day With Hot Water and Apple Cider Vinegar


The first thing Hurley likes to put in her body each day is hot water, and sometimes she adds apple cider vinegar to it. She tells The Cut that although she doesn't always enjoy the taste, she drinks it for the health benefits. "When I got to the studio I'd drink a mug of hot water and go into hair and makeup. I often put apple cider vinegar in my hot water. It tastes disgusting. I can't face it every day, so I'll put it in my hot water maybe every other day. It's good for your metabolism."


She Keeps Both Her Body and Her Mind Healthy

Hurley tells The Cut that when it comes to wellness, she thinks it's just as important to take care of her mind as well as her body. "You need to balance both. Of course it's important to eat well and exercise. It's also really important to look after yourself emotionally."


She's Inspired To Stay Well

Hurley says that her family is what inspires to stay well and healthy. She says to The Cut, "When my father died back in the '90s, it made me realize how fragile life is, and how you have to seize the day. When I had my son fifteen years ago, that also brought home to me that once you're responsible for someone else, it helps you not worry about silly things. Once you've faced life and death, it really makes you focus on what actually matters. I let a lot of things go now."
