She Loves Pilates

Hudson is open about her love of Pilates, and tells SELF, "Nothing, literally nothing, makes me feel like I'm back to my body more than Pilates. I'll travel, and I'll go for a run or I'll Spin. But when I go home and get on the reformer or the Cadillac, my body immediately goes back. I can see an instant shift."


She Works Out At Different Studios & At Home

Hudson has a lot of places where she likes to get her exercise in, including her house. She tells Harper's Bazaar, "I mostly do it at my house. In London, I do this thing called Heartcore and it's amazing. They're bringing that to the states soon hopefully. And Circuit Works. So I'm all over the place really. Sometimes I'll just move around and dance around to kind of just sweat because I feel like I need to get things circulating. But I'm not hardcore about it."


She's A Believer in Alkaline and Indulgence


Hudson says that her diet can be restrictive, but she also says that she believes in indulgence. Hudson tells Harper's Bazaar that she mostly sticks to the Alkaline diet, and indulges occasionally. "I live by a rulebook of eating alkaline. And then I'll cheat when I want to, but I sort of make that my go-to unless I'm out at a great restaurant. I'm a bit of a foodie, so I can't cut out the things that I love, so I just make sure that on a daily basis I eat very alkaline. So no meat, no dairy, no gluten, I try to stay away from sugar. But then I could be at a movie theater and throw down on some popcorn and milk duds or at an Italian restaurant and I'll have my pasta. So I try not to make it about dieting, I try just to make alkaline my normal and then have fun."


She Loves To Dance

Hudson has starred in musical and dancing roles like in the film Nine and the TV series Glee. So it's no surprise that she loves to dance, and does so when she needs to relieve some stress. "Dancing is the thing for me," she says to SELF. "It just makes me feel so much better. You know how you see dancers always crying? It's like reconnecting with an old self." Hudson admits that she'll have dance parties when she's alone. "Sometimes I'll lock myself in a room and dance. I'll turn music on as loud as possible and just get weird!"


She Doesn't Pressure Herself


Even with the struggles of growing up in the public eye and beauty standards, Hudson says that she doesn't pressure herself to look a certain way. She tells Harper's Bazaar, "I think it's just about taking it easy and not putting too much pressure on yourself." 


She Keeps A Health Journal

One of Hudson's wellness secrets is keeping a journal. "When you jot things down, you can really see what's going on," Hudson says to SELF. "What are you eating? What are your food patterns? You can get clued in to the things that are going on with you."
