She Drinks Juice

Salma is so into juicing that she started her own brand, Cooler Cleanse. "When I feel stressed, I turn to food for comfort," she explains on the brand's website. "After doing a juice cleanse, I'm motivated to eat healthier and not emotionally." She also maintains that cleansing is meditative for her. "It makes me stop, focus and think about what I'm putting into my body. I'm making a commitment to my health and hitting the reset button."

Salma eats a primarily plant-based diet with meat sprinkled in. "The only thing I do is that I don't eat animals every day. I eat all kinds of meat, but I consume it sparsely," she explained to the New York Times. "I would never eat two meats in a day. Sometimes I go several days without eating meat, but then I'll go back."

Salma eats a lot of fruits and veggies and aims for colorful meals. One of her favorites?

"It doesn't sound like it tastes great but it's delicious," she dished on Instagram

You won't find Salma breaking a sweat via an intense workout method. "Some people have the discipline to exercise in the morning, and I didn't develop that," she explained to People. "I work with a woman in London who taught me how to hold my body in a way where the muscles are activated all day long. So even when you brush your teeth, you're working the muscles," she added. "It's restorative yoga. She taught me how to tone [my muscles] without clenching them. You relax them and focus on the parts that need to be used, but never with tension. If you're aware of your body, you'd be surprised by the effect it can have."

She Gets Massages

Salma is all about self-care practices, including getting a regular rubdown. "Massage oxygenates, activates the circulation, and keeps the muscles healthy and firm. I cannot tell you, even just for the lymphatic [system], what the massage does for the face," she told Vogue

She Meditates

Salma is a big proponent of meditation. "It makes you experience your body with a lightness that's really delicious and satisfying," she told InStyle. "With the breathing and the going inside, you explore your body in a different way, and you learn not to go crazy with the expectations."
