She's A Dancer

Marcos is an incredible dancer, and puts hours and hours of practice into her performances. "Dance can be both aerobic and anaerobic exercise; however, it depends on the type of dance and how intense you are moving," says Annamaria Louloudis, MS, RDN, and certified Zumba instructor. "A dance workout like any other workout that gets your heart-rate pumping, and has you sweating bullets by the end of it, is a good determinant of an effective cardio workout."

Marcos enjoys playing the ukulele, and takes one along with her whenever she can. "Research shows that making music can lower blood pressure, decrease heart rate, reduce stress, and lessen anxiety and depression," says Suzanne Hanser, EdD, MT-BC, chair of the music therapy department at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. "There is also increasing evidence that making music enhances the immunological response, which enables us to fight viruses."

She's a Singer

Marcos is a beautiful singer, which benefits both her mental and physical health. "The physiological benefits of singing, and music more generally, have long been explored," says Jacques Launay, Postdoctoral Researcher in Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford. "Music making exercises the brain as well as the body, but singing is particularly beneficial for improving breathing, posture and muscle tension. Listening to and participating in music has been shown to be effective in pain relief, too, probably due to the release of neurochemicals such as β-endorphin (a natural painkiller responsible for the 'high' experienced after intense exercise). There's also some evidence to suggest that music can play a role in sustaining a healthy immune system, by reducing the stress hormone cortisol and boosting the Immunoglobin A antibody."

She Drinks Red Wine

Marcos loves red wine, which experts say may offer some health benefits if enjoyed in moderation. "Drinking too much alcohol comes with serious health risks. But there is evidence that drinking red wine in moderation may have health benefits," says Jocelyn Solis-Moreira, MScJocelyn Solis-Moreira, MSc. "Research suggests that small amounts of red wine may reduce your chances of developing heart disease and can improve your gut health. It also shows promise in a number of other areas. Many of the potential health benefits of red wine are based on its high levels of plant nutrients called polyphenols, which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties."
