Drink Lots of Water
Lana makes sure to stay hydrated. "I also drink at least half my body weight, in ounces, of water every day," she told E! "Staying hydrated is such a must- and I genuinely feel better when my body is fully hydrated." "Lack of water can lead to dehydration — a condition that occurs when you don't have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions. Even mild dehydration can drain your energy and make you tired," says the Mayo Clinic.
Tell Yourself You Are Beautiful
Lana once revealed to Self she struggles with body dysmorphia, but that she has a secret trick to overcome her self-confidence issues. "I have to really, really, really tell myself that I am beautiful and my talent is valid. And I might look a little bit different than I did, whatever, a year ago," she revealed.
Do HIIT Workouts
Lana works out with Los Angeles personal trainer Paolo Mascittii five days a week , doing cardio and high intensity interval training. They do squats and lunges, and while tough, "it's worth it, because now I have a booty," she told Self. They also do exercises with a slam ball. "I hate it, but it's very effective," she said. "If I'm having a bad day or I have a little aggression, slamming that ball down on the ground really helps me. It always makes me feel a lot better when it's finished."
Don't Overdo It with Exercise
Lana gives her body a break if it needs one. "If my body is so sore and I need a day off, he's so understanding about that," she said. "My mental health is the priority, and my mental health is always better when I am active. But sometimes when your body hurts, you're like, I can't do anything, I don't want to get up. And so he's very patient. If there's a day that I feel the need to be a little bit more gentle with myself, he's great."
Lana is a fan of a certain do-anywhere form of cardio, jump roping, which helps keep her heart rate up. "No matter how you choose to move, being active helps increase circulation, which leads to clearer, healthier skin. Other health benefits can go much deeper than just your skin, too," says the Cleveland Clinic. "When you work your muscles, it increases oxygen supply, therefore allowing muscles to work harder. Over time, regular cardio exercise allows your muscles to adapt to an increased workload, making regular activities seem easier."
Find a Workout Buddy
The couple that trains together, stays together. Lana's boyfriend, Anthony De La Torre, is her workout buddy. "Anthony doesn't particularly love when I cheer him on when he's lifting, because it makes him laugh, and then he drops it," she revealed to Self. "So I'm not allowed to cheer him on, but he could cheer me on."
Do Group Fitness
"I always do a little bit better in a class setting or in-person, just because I think that I have a competitive nature in workout classes," she told Self. "So I feel like I can really hit it hard." Pilates, boxing, and hot yoga sculpt classes are a few classes she likes.
Eat What Makes You Happy
Lana's food mantra is, "to eat what makes you happy," she told Bon Appetit. While she doesn't diet, she eats in moderation. "I've tried to take away noodles in my life, and it just doesn't work—I'm miserable! I always think to myself, 'Well, I could starve myself and go on a diet and be fucking miserable. But what if I die in a plane crash? Or, what if I have the most amazing meal of my life, and then I could still die in a plane crash, but at least I'd have a happy belly!"
