SZA in Workout Gear Says There's "Joy Worth Finding"

Here are her go-to lifestyle habits. 

SZA is living her best life – in her workout clothes. In a new social media post the singer shows off her amazing body in workout clothes and a swimsuit in a curated series of snaps taken while on vacation. "Don't let them fool you . There's still life worth living and joy worth finding," she captioned the Instagram post. "T​the prettiest face," commented one of her followers. "It's always u for me 😍" commented Latto. How does she approach health and wellness? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


No Dairy, Wheat, and Sugar

What does SZA eat? "[I] really don't know a name for it lmao," she responded to a fan asking about what diet she follows.  "No red meat (mostly fish), no dairy, no wheat no sugar…high veggie…complex carbs only (squash, avocado, sweet potato etc.), hella water [dassit]," she added in the tweet.



SZA works out for an hour and fifteen minutes – sometimes two – every day, she added in the Tweet. To get her sweat on she says that she needs a "green tea" along with a "hittin'" playlist.


Standup Paddle Boarding

In one of the photos from her Instagram post, SZA is paddleboarding. The American Council on Exercise (ACE) agrees that paddle boarding is great for the core and also a great form of cardio. The water sport can burn an average of 385 calories for a 140 pound male and 436 for a female the same size, per a study conducted by Arizona State University.



SZA enjoys walking. "I hit the forest, or I hit the park, or I do a lot of walks, a lot of exercises," she told Billboard. Why should you go for a stroll? One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.



SZA enjoys the mental health benefits of meditation. "Sitting still and meditating is a component for me, but it's not my key component. I need to be outside amongst trees, and among anything nature-based. I'll drive really far to get there and I don't mind," she told Billboard. "When you meditate, you may clear away the information overload that builds up every day and contributes to your stress," says the Mayo Clinic. Benefits include:

  • Gaining a new perspective on stressful situations
  • Building skills to manage your stress
  • Increasing self-awareness
  • Focusing on the present
  • Reducing negative emotions
  • Increasing imagination and creativity
  • Increasing patience and tolerance
  • Lowering resting heart rate
  • Lowering resting blood pressure
  • Improving sleep quality
