Prioritize Sleep

Elsa makes sure to get her beauty sleep. "I'm usually good with six or seven hours. I get 6 most of the time, but sometimes I sleep, like, 13 hours. Sleep is so important. I think more important than we know. When I haven't slept, I'm not myself. I'm not as easy-going," she told The Cut


Don't Diet

Elsa believes in healthy eating but refuses to go on any strict diets. "I am really bad at being on a diet. As soon as I tell myself, 'You have to eat this or that,' I am going to do the exact opposite, so I didn't tell myself anything. I just tried to stay away from processed food," she told ELLE


Eat a Plant-Based Diet

"I try to eat healthy and a plant-based diet," Elsa dished to Coveteur. "I watched the documentary What the Health, and it affected me a lot. I was like, 'OK, I have to change how I eat.' In Sweden we eat a lot of dairy, cheese, and eggs, so I've cut that out for the past 5 weeks and I'm seeing a big improvement in my skin and in my belly. And I feel much better. It makes you realize there's definitely something to it."


Mix Up Your Workouts

Hosk maintains variety with exercising, doing a variety of workouts to stay fit. "I love boxing, and I try to mix it up as much as I can. Boxing makes you kind of tight, so it's really good to mix that with barre, pilates, or something that'll stretch you out and make you longer. I'm not the person that loves to be in the gym so much. I like to mix it up as much as possible, otherwise I'll get bored," she told Marie Claire


Go for a Run

One of Hosk's favorite ways to workout doesn't cost a dime. "I just started running," she told Coveteur. "I don't time it; I don't put any pressure on myself, I just go the pace I want. I think that's a really beautiful way to feel yourself and feel your body and see the city."


Lift Weights

Elsa stays strong by pumping iron. "On the runway you're wearing really heavy wings and really high heels, so you need really strong legs so you don't fall," she told Coveteur. 


Dance Your Way to a Hot Body

Elsa revealed to Elle that she is a fan of blasting calories via dance-inspired workouts. "I've been training with Megan Roup, who does dance cardio. It's lots of toning moves for the glutes, legs, and arms. She's just really fun."
