She Does Virtual Sessions With A Trainer

Brewster opened up about her life in the COVID-19 pandemic in an interview with Health. She says that she managed to stay in shape when gyms were closed. She says that one of the things she did was doing virtual sessions with her trainer. "​​I'm very lucky in that I've been doing FaceTime workouts with my trainer, Harley Pasternak."


She Goes Outside

Brewster also told Health that she loves to spend time outside as a way to stay in shape. She says that she still made time to go outside during the pandemic. "I also go on hikes, which is really nice. I need to get steps in. I need to be outside and breathing fresh air. I'm so lucky that I live in L.A., where I can do that, because otherwise I would go absolutely stir-crazy."


She Slowed Down

Brewster told Health that her life slowed down due to the pandemic. She says that she has greatly appreciated this switch, and that she is going to try to keep this up in the future. "It's massively simplified everything. I'm a little bit like a hamster on a wheel. And I feel like I often give myself a to-do list because I want to feel like I'm accomplishing something. But it's not really accomplishing anything. Now I'm actually spending time with my kids, reading, and going on hikes. And I'm noticing, 'Oh, my drawers need cleaning.' It's making me far more practical, and that's really grounding. I really hope that I don't get back into the rat race, that I continue to slow down a bit and continue to simplify. I think that's the biggest gift."


She Focuses On Her Body In The Moment

Brewster is open about her struggles with an eating disorder. She tells The Retaility that she used to obsess about her body and her weight. To overcome this, she is working on focusing on her body in the moment. "Ten years ago, I was so concerned about, 'How does my stomach look? How does my" backside "look?' There was so much pressure on actresses to look a certain way and that's exhausting and such a waste of energy, because instead of reading or focusing on your character, you're focused on 'How do I look right now and is it perfect enough?'"


She Goes To Therapy

Brewster tells The Retaility that she is in therapy, and that her therapist, Kasey Crown, has really helped her out. "She's awesome," she says. "Because she's a therapist, but not a conventional therapist. She grounds me before each session. There's going to be a meditative retreat in Ojai where she's helping me learn to check in with myself before I say yes to anything. She's helping me develop boundaries. I feel like I was boundaryless for so long."
