Suits Star Gina Torres in Workout Gear is "Back at Working Out"

Here are her lifestyle tips.

Suits and 9-1-1: Lone Star legend Gina Torres is back to working out after a break. "Hey everybody. Happy Friday. So listen, today was my first day back at working out after having to take a few months off old injuries, new injuries, nursing them, taking care of them, travel, being sick," she said.  "So listen, I want you to hear this, okay? What I'm telling you right now with my full chest, it's important to keep moving for your health because what I'm feeling right now is—," well, what she said next we can't print, and Torres bleeps the word with a hilarious shrieking sound effect. Let's just say it's a synonym for, she's feeling the burn. Here are more of her wellness tips.


She Has a Great Take on Aging

When asked about her place in the industry, Torres  told Cherry Picks: "I can honestly say that I am profoundly grateful to have gotten to this place in my career. I've survived! And I'm hardly the only one. There is a lovely and growing list of women of my generation who are being embraced and valued for the richness of talent they bring to the work. I could not have imagined when I first started out that the roles I would be getting at this age would be as interesting, challenging and across so many genres. One thing I would love to see change is the obsession with physical perfection at EVERY age. The pressure to achieve and maintain an unnatural state of beauty is beyond damaging."


For Self-Care, She Tends to Her Hair

"Sharing a little self care moment," Torres captioned one post, shouting out LaShandra N White. "Some of the amazing styles that @1nicnac creates for me on @911lonestar require a lot of smoothing and controlling products. You big hair & curly girls know it's not about washing it out and styling everyday…. So midweek ~ to avoid too much buildup, I keep my crown protected and just give the perimeter some extra love and conditioning. Have you ever done this?? What's your go to for hair care? Let's share some tips!"


She Tries to Make the Most of Her Time

"Frankly, there's just never enough time. The hours that actors keep are brutal. If you're fortunate to be based in your home town, then maybe you get to drop them off at school or be home for dinner. But sometimes you need to travel and be away because the vast majority of us have to go where the work is. The only advice I can give is to make the most of the time you get, and to be kind to yourself. You're not doing anyone any favors by punishing yourself for holding down your household and/or following your dream, not to mention being an example of a fully realized woman," she told Cherry Picks. 


She Has Perspective

She'd tell her younger self to "hang in here. "I would tell that to my 35-year-old self. The messaging is the same, which is: What is yours is yours. It doesn't matter the road you choose to get there, you're going to get there. You can get there quick, or you can take the scenic route, and that's all about choice. I firmly believe your blessings are yours, and we get them when we're ready. We get them when we're supposed to," she told Glamour.


It Really is Important to Keep Moving

"As we age, our bones can become weak and fragile. This causes a condition called osteoporosis, where bones lose density and the risk of fracture increases. The good news is, as little as 30 minutes of physical activity each day can help strengthen your bones and prevent osteoporosis. Weight-bearing activities such as walking, jogging and climbing stairs are great places to start," says Sun Health Wellness.
