She Aims to Own Her Own Personality

"The pressures on women around the world, I think, are the same: the reach of trying to look like perfection, which is not possible for real women," she told Vogue. "I don't think it's just America or India at all, [the ideal of] being impossibly skinny or having impossibly perfect skin. What is very important for women is to own who you are and accept who you are and run with that. To be able to own your own personality is one of the most difficult things on the planet because we are inundated by these extreme, unachievable ideologies of what beauty should be. But I think true beauty really comes from having a sense of confidence—that you walk into a room and people wonder why you're so confident. I think that makes for intrigue."


She Preserves Herself

"In everyday life, we wake up in the morning and go for our jobs. Nobody has the luxury to spend time taking care of their hair or their skin or giving it a regimen, right? I don't have time to get a facial. I don't have time to go to the spa and get my body wrapped in seaweed or whatever. I don't get deep-conditioning treatments," she told Vogue. "That's why my shampoo is awesome. It's important for us to have products that give us the ability of looking like we've just stepped out of a salon. It's really important to find things that protect and preserve us how we want to be protected and preserved. Like, for example, drinking as much water as you can and staying hydrated, or trying to eat foods that are [rich] in antioxidants, or taking the stairs instead of the elevator—things that you can build into your life to take care of yourself."


She Has Said She Doesn't Diet

"I don't really have a diet. I wing it by the seat of my pants," she told ELLE US. "It's such a girl thing to do, like if I feel, 'Ughh, I put on a few pounds' and I feel gross about [myself] I suddenly start eating salad, protein, and soup. Otherwise, if I am feeling like I am in great shape I am okay with cheeseburgers and pizza. So, when someone asks me about my diet I feel terrible saying that I don't really have one." "You don't have to starve yourself," Chopra told Women's Health. "I love having my pizzas and burgers and buffalo wings, on the side, for sure."


She Stays Super Agile


"Honestly, I work out only when I need to. My body responds very quickly to exercise, so I don't need too long to tone up and get into shape," she told Vogue India. "I want to hit the gym but I work 15-hour days and I'm exhausted by the end of it," she told Vogue India. "I have to stay super active and agile because I do my own stunts. I do all my fights myself. I trust my body and my instincts," she confirmed. "I try to be active in everyday life—I take the stairs instead of the elevators or walk instead of driving," she shared.  


She Has Done Yoga

"I also do yoga and find it both relaxing and very energizing," she told the India Times. "It's great to keep your mind and body healthy. It's definitely something I would recommend. My gym work-outs usually last for about an hour." Says the Mayo Clinic: "Since yoga is based on breathing, parts of the nervous system are affected when exhales are lengthened and breath is controlled. This is cued throughout particular yoga sequences. Specifically, yoga can help lower the fight-or-flight response and improve the body's 'rest-and-digest' response. Practicing slow, controlled breathing stimulates the body's vagus nerve, which takes information about the current state of relaxation and relays it to the rest of the body, including the brain."
