She Does Cardio, HIIT, and Yoga

Sailor tries to "work out every day," she told InStyle. "A normal workout would start with cardio. I'm a big runner—I try to run two miles a day. Then I work out with my trainer at Work Train Fight, doing HIIT workouts like burpees and lunges. If I need a day off, I'll do yoga or something low-intensity," she said. If she has a shoot coming up she will "work out like an athlete," she said. "I add on weight training, I box, and really push my muscles," focusing on her abs.


She Drinks A Lot of Water

Sailor is all about hydration. "You want to be hydrated because it shows up in the way your skin looks, in the way that your body looks, in the way that you're acting and feeling," she told InStyle. "24 hours before a shoot, I'm drinking a crazy amount of water—I'm talking like three gallons."


She Eats Clean


"I eat as clean as possible," Sailor revealed to InStyle. "Lots of lean protein. I'm vegan so I can't have grilled chicken or salmon, but I go for salads with quinoa and beans and fresh vegetables and then something light, like a sautéed vegetable dish, for dinner."


She Walks

Sailor thinks walking is "a really underrated thing people don't do enough when they're feeling stressed out. Especially in the city, I'll put my phone in my pocket, put my headphones in, and I'll just play my favorite music and take a walk around the city. You just see all these different people of all different walks of life, and the art on the streets, and little fluffy dogs. All these little things remind you that, Okay, we're all in this together, we're going through it, you've got to make the best of it. That really helps me a lot when I'm feeling chaotic," she told Glamour


She Indulges in Self-Care

Sailor takes time for self-care. Her version involves candles. "I have this connection to candles because I always feel like they represent a moment of self-care for me," she told People. "I'm never really casually lighting a candle. I'll light a candle with the intention of getting cozy and feeling calm." She added: "I knew that hopefully they would bring anyone else that deals with a restless mind these moments of feeling grounded and feeling present and calm and setting your intentions. Each of these candles really brings a great, calm moment to my day."
