Don't Deprive Yourself

"Don't deprive yourself of anything because eventually you'll crave it and then you might binge on it. Everything in moderation," Nicole told Women's Health UK. "For breakfast I love eggs and toast and smoked salmon or bacon, or porridge. For lunch I like maybe some soup or some sushi. For dinner, anything from pasta to rice, and meats and veggies, to sushi. When I'm going to indulge, I love pasta, pizza, I love Mexican with lots of cheese. I love French fries, or crisps – salt and vinegar crisps. In terms of snacks: almonds, coconut water, bits of coconut, baby carrots."


Try Lots of Different Workouts

Nicole maintains variety with her workouts. "In a typical workout I would run on the treadmill, maybe 20 mins, then try to do some squats, some sit-ups on the exercise ball, some yoga stretches. When I'm home I like to take a spinning class called Soul Cycle or I like to do hot yoga – a modified version of bikram yoga – or hiking, and core power yoga in LA," she told Women's Health UK. And of course, she dances. "I mean, I heard that dancing and laughing gives you better abs than crunches anyway," she wrote in a recent post. 


Find a Workout Buddy

Need a little motivation to exercise? Find a workout buddy, Nicole encourages. "Me and my girlfriends support each other for the gym. Because, you know, it's hard to be motivated sometimes, so when you go you push each other, – we try to do different things," she explained to Women's Health UK. "We'll go hiking one day and then we'll try a sculpting hot yoga class, then we'll do a cardio. We just motivate each other."


Strive for an Active Lifestyle

Nicole exercises for both physical and mental health benefits. "I travel so much it's so important for me to sweat it out. It's not only for physical being, but mostly for my mental well-being. It keeps me centered, focused, strong and helps me get in the right frame of mind for my work ahead. Preparation is key. Prepare yourself so when the opportunity comes, you are ready!" she wrote on Instagram. 


Make Sure to Get Enough Sleep


Nicole gets enough sleep, even with her extremely busy lifestyle. "Get lots of sleep – sleep really makes such a huge difference," she told Women's Health UK.
