Do Exercise for Mental Health

Sophie suggests working out, not only to stay in physical shape but mental as well. "I somehow managed to stay fit through lockdown by doing online sessions with my trainer, Yashmin Karachiwala, and followed YouTube videos. With all of us being stuck in our homes, one thing we have to do is focus on our health. Working out helps me to keep my physical fitness and mental sanity. I got into such a good routine through the lockdown," she told Times of India.


Don't Limit Yourself to One Type of Workout

If you want a fantastic figure like Sophie, mix up your workouts. "I do pilates, strength training, and cardio," she explained to Times of India. " I go four times a week. I don't work out to be skinny or anything like that. As soon as work gets full-blown again, in terms of stage shows and shooting, you need to be fit to be in this line of work. It makes me really happy and I enjoy working out."


Do Find Sweat Methods That Make You Smile

If you find joy in exercise, you are more likely to do it, suggests Sophie. "I think if you are lucky to find the form of workout you enjoy, then you will be excited to go. For some people, it's weight training, yoga, running, dancing. For me it is pilates. Because I love it so much so it never feels like a routine or chores. It is something I am really passionate about. I still try to do some stuff online at home because I realized that I enjoy that. It is possible to stay fit at home. There is so much stuff available online on YouTube. It is really about your determination, " she told Times of India. 


Don't Diet

You don't need to diet to stay in shape, according to Sophie. "I don't believe in extreme dieting or extreme workouts. My motto has always been consistency. I feel fitness has to be a part of your lifestyle and it should come naturally to yourself.Then, you will not find it difficult and you will not treat it as a chore," she told OnManorama.


Do Eat Healthy Food

Sophie detailed her diet to Telegraph Online. "I wake up in the morning and start my day with a cup of my own detox tea, Fittox, which is really good and I genuinely swear by it. It's a great way for me to start my day," she revealed. "Breakfast is super important, that's the meal I look forward to. It can be eggs and toast or avocado on toast or almond milk porridge with some berries. I have a green tea with it." At lunchtime she might nosh on one or two rotis with sabzi or a grilled chicken with a salad or an avocado salad. "My five o'clock snack is some dry fruits and a coffee at 7pm in the evening, I have some soup. If I'm really hungry, I might have some tofu or a little bit of chicken with that. After 8pm, I don't eat. If I'm hungry, then I'll have a herbal tea at night while watching Netflix or something. Or hopefully, my own show Work It Up (laughs)! I'll probably just have herbal tea and a piece of dark chocolate, that's about it," she concluded.


Don't Deprive Yourself


If you eat healthy most of the time, you deserve a cheat meal every once and a while, says Sophie. "I have a sweet tooth. So, it has to be something like pancakes or waffles or caramel popcorn while watching a movie or something like that. I don't eat pizza at all, not interested," she told Telegraph Online. 


Do Focus On the Quality of Exercise, Not Quantity

Sophie focuses on the quality of her workouts and not the quantity. "You know you could do a 100 s**t counts or you could just do 10 great counts. It's really about doing the counts properly and having great form and feeling every movement that you do," she told Telegraph Online.
