Take time to de-stress. It’s not a surprise thatstress wreaks havoc on our health. It can show up in many formss, from a breakout on the skin to muscle cramps and back pain. However, the key to avoiding a total meltdown (which often happens to professionals in the entertainment industry) is to de-stress on a regular basis. Whether it is going on a walk, getting a massage, or taking a yoga class, designate a block of time every single day to de-stress and recoup.
Stay hydrated and energized with H20. If you’re always on the go, it can be hard to stay hydrated. What makes things worse might be your desire to consume caffeinated beverages to keep your energy levels up for longer. But instead of relying on caffeine and sugar to keep you awake, drink lots of water throughout the day. Drinking a lot of water will keep you hydrated and give you the energy you need all day long.
