Exercise First Thing

Baeva starts the day with a workout. "Exercise in the morning helps to get your metabolism going, burning more calories throughout the day," says orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist David Geier, MD, author of That's Gotta Hurt: The Injuries That Changed Sports Forever. "Often in the course of a busy day, events come up that end up squeezing out your workout time."

Rice and Chicken

Baeva eats plain chicken breast with rice when she wants to reset her healthy eating routine. "Brown rice retains the bran layer and as such contains protective compounds called flavonoids, examples of these include apigenin and quercetin," says registered nutritionist Kerry Torrens. "These compounds play an important role in protecting against disease. Numerous studies suggest including wholegrains, like brown rice, in the diet is linked to a reduced risk of conditions like heart disease, some cancers including pancreatic and gastric cancers as well as type 2 diabetes."

She's a Dancer

Baeva posts videos of her choreographed dance routines. "When you begin moving, you immediately release the brain chemicals dopamine, adrenaline, and endorphins, causing a powerful and lasting effect I call 'energized optimism,'" says Kelly McGonigal, PhD.

Coffee For Energy Boost

Baeva enjoys the energy boost she gets from coffee. "Coffee may help some people maintain alertness and energy levels thanks to its caffeine content," says registered nutritionist Nicola Shubrook. "When coffee is consumed, it is absorbed into the bloodstream and travels to the brain where it 'fires up' certain neurons which may improve memory, mood, energy and cognitive function, if consumed in moderation. Other reports suggest drinking coffee before exercise may reduce rates of exertion and potentially improve athletic performance."
