She Dances


Before Haley got into acting, she had been a competitive dancer for most of her life. During an interview with The Last Magazine, she said, "I danced for like eight or nine years. I was super focused and committed to that; all I did was go to school and then dance and get no sleep. That's when I learned about self-motivation and committing to something, and also about how much I love entertaining and telling stories. And I think dance and acting have those things in common."


She Loves Caffeinated Beverages

Haley starts her day with a matcha with oat milk, "a new thing I've been doing in the last year. I never drank caffeine every day, and I guess now that I'm in my late twenties, it's finally made its way into my life," she told Byrdie. I'm not too fond of the taste of coffee, and I only like it if it's 95 percent oat milk and there's some sweetener. Also, coffee really affects my bowels quite a bit, and it's not something I can drink regularly. [Laughs] Matcha is more gentle."


She Crochets

Haley also has a nice, relaxing hobby. "I've also been crocheting since I was eight-years-old and found myself in and out of consistency with it. But when I'm invested, I'm crocheting every day," she told Byrdie. Crocheting can be a creative outlet that allows you to express yourself through the items you make.


She Meditates

Haley also takes care of her mental health. One way she gets her zen on? Mediation. She captioned this image, "meditating in the mouth." There are many potential benefits to meditation, including:

  1. Reduced stress: Meditation can help reduce stress and promote relaxation by allowing you to focus on the present moment and release thoughts about the past or future.
  2. Improved sleep: Meditation can help you relax and clear your mind before bedtime, which may improve your sleep quality.
  3. Increased mindfulness: Meditation can help increase your awareness of the present moment and your thoughts and feelings, which can lead to a greater sense of self-awareness and self-acceptance.


She Eats Clean

Haley has a simple but healthy approach to diet. "I like eating food items that don't have a long ingredient list. I prefer the taste of a date with peanut butter to most desserts in a grocery store," she told Byrdie. Eating clean refers to the practice of consuming whole, minimally processed foods in order to improve health and well-being. Some potential benefits of eating clean include:

  1. Weight loss: Eating clean can help support weight loss by focusing on whole, nutrient-dense foods that are lower in calories and fat than processed foods.
  2. Improved digestion: Consuming whole, fiber-rich foods can help support healthy digestion and regular bowel movements.
  3. Increased intake of nutrients: Eating clean can help increase your intake of nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which can support overall health.
  4. Better blood sugar control: Eating clean can help improve blood sugar control by focusing on foods that are low on the glycemic index, which means they are less likely to cause spikes in blood sugar levels.
