On naps: “I’m not afraid to take a nap in the middle of the day or any time. I’m sort of always done that — whenever I’m on set I always nap at lunch because it resets me. And sometimes I just need to be quiet for 20 minutes and think and regroup, whether it’s going through a list of gratitude in my head or what am I coming up against ands how can I figure that out and go about it in a different way, like if I’m not reaching that goal what’s standing in my way and how do I fix that because there are roadblocks and it;s really hard and you can get down on yourself, like, ‘Gosh, do I suck?’ And then you have to figure it out.”
On gym time/fitness: “I do a variation. I used to put a lot of pressure [on myself], like ‘Did I work out five times this week?’ whatever, and then I was like, I’m going to put this in the category of self care and actually enjoy it and look at it like that because I don’t have to put the pressure. I do yoga or boxing or cycling, sometimes I run. I did the marathon in 2007 and I felt like I really ran it. I don’t run as much as anymore. I thought I would run 10 miles a week after that but oh no, that’s really long.”
Keeping active helps her mentally: “It always makes me feel better because even if I do five minutes it’s better than sitting on the couch, just get the body moving. If I’m stressed about it something it immediately clears that and then I can think more clearly, look at it from a different point of view. It’s like taking a walk, it gets everything loosened up. I’ve been running and working out since I was about 11 and when I was growing up if I had a test I would calm myself and it just helps when you’re around with a lot of different energy or whatever and you need to get rid of that and back to being myself.”
What she does on the days she doesn’t work out: “In general, if I don’t feel like going to work or I don’t feel like going to work out usually those are the days that I grow the most or I discover something that I never thought I would or it turned out to be one of the best days. I always try to keep that in mind.”
