Prioritize Self Care
Karol prioritizes self care. "On my free days I try to rest," she told People en Espanol about how she stays sane despite her busy schedule. To get a good night's rest, "try to minimize light prior to bedtime. This includes the light from your computer, television or cell phone – perhaps go as far as to ban these devices from your sleeping environment. Keeping a sleep routine is also recommended. Doing the same thing each night prior to turning in can help prepare your body and mind for sleep. Stick to activities that promote relaxation such as meditation, yoga, journaling or reading," says the Mayo Clinic.
Karol regularly hits the gym. She revealed that her trainer travels with her and they do hotel room workouts. "I do workout circuits. If there is a great gym at the hotel then I'll lift weights, but we usually bring our own elastic bands. My training is more focused on CrossFit," she explained.
Eat Healthy But Avoid Strict Diets
"I don't like diets that are extremely strict," Karol revealed to people about her eating habits. She tries to eat a carbohydrate once a day, at lunch time, and loads up on lean protein, veggies, and salad. She avoids consuming too much dairy but eats granola with Greek yogurt twice a week. She also keeps unhealthy sweets at bay. "I don't eat any desserts," she told People.
Get Your Zen On
While Karol doesn't meditate, she prays. "I say, 'Thank you God for this,' because I do believe a lot in God," she explained. "I think that everything that happens in my life is a miracle. My spiritual side in life is having my family near me," she added. "That connection with my family is what gives me the spirituality to stay happy. My relationship with my boyfriend is also very special to me."
Karol is all about cheat days. One of her favorite cheat meals? French fry pizza. "I don't eat fast food like burgers, but I will eat a nice steak with mash potatoes and veggies," she told People.
Karol stresses the importance of balance. "You have to have a balance," she told People. "I have an insulin problem and maintaining a good weight for me is super stressful." For a boost of fiber, "flaxseeds contain omega-3 fatty acids, fiber and phytoestogens to boost heart health. Take them in ground or milled form to reap the greatest benefit. Chia seeds also provide omega 3, fiber and protein and can be eaten whole," says the Cleveland Clinic.
"I'll admit that I am not always 100 percent confident because I'm a woman. I'm a woman and I'm human," she told ET. "I do have those high peak moments when I feel my best. I feel gorgeous and I love what I do. I also have those days when I don't feel so great…. When I walk out onstage, that's when I feel the most grand and special. The stage is the happiest place in the world."
