Dobrev revealed some of her wellness tips to Teen Vogue. She says that she makes working out a priority. "When I workout I feel good. I don't know if it's the endorphins that get released or taking time for me. I don't think people give enough time to themselves, me-time is almost non-existent anymore. So in that 30 minutes, 45, however long you're in the workout class you're focusing on you and you're doing something for yourself and to make yourself feel better. Not only does it change your body and make you look better, it also makes you feel better."

She Works Out With Her Friends

Dobrev tells Teen Vogue that she likes to workout with company. "Whenever I go with my girlfriends, they push me and motivate me to do better. Having that support system in class is helpful. And also accountable — if you say you're going to do something with your friends you're going to do it and go. If you plan on doing something on your own, you might bail on it because you just don't feel like it or you're lazy or you're not having a good day. But you can go to a workout class and chat with your friends before, do the class and go to coffee after words and chat about your lives and catch up. So it's nice to have a community in that way."

Dobrev tells Teen Vogue that she takes care of her mental health. She makes sure to take deep breaths when she's stressed out. "If you're in a stressful situation, or if you're upset about something, you can just breathe in and out a few times and allow for that time to pass. You can be more objective mentally and think about what just happened."

She Eats More

Dobrev revealed to Teen Vogue that she has made some changes to her diet. "The older I get, the more I realize that the more healthy you are in your choices, like I probably eat more now. I probably eat more now because I've learned it's healthier to eat meals more frequently and that will sustain your metabolism. So it's things like that, learning about biology and nutrition. So I have a higher caloric intake throughout the day, and I feel better."

She Loves Pilates
