5 Must-Have Fitness Tips from Taylor Swift

By The Body Department September 17, 2015

Taylor Swift has had quite the Summer. When you are rehearsing and performing concerts for hours every single day, you definitely need to have a plan of how to stay healthy.

1. Stay Hydrated
“I drink so much water my friends call me an alien.”

2. Listen to Your Body
“If I’m indulging too much and not exercising enough, I can feel that. I can feel a change before I see it. For me, working out is not so I can get skinny. It’s so that I can keep up my endurance so I’m not panting on stage. Heavy breathing is the worst when you’re in concert.”

3. Have a Weekly Routine
“During the week, I try to eat healthily, so that means salads, yogurt, and sandwiches. No sugary drinks. I try to keep it lighter, but it’s nothing too regimented or crazy. I don’t like to create too many rules where I don’t need them. We know what’s good for us, thanks to common sense. I have a need to feel like I’ve earned things, when I have a week of working really hard, I get to have a day or two off — whether it’s from exercise or watching what I eat. I like comfort foods. I love a burger and fries, I love ice cream so much and I love baking cookies. Actually, I love baking anything. The point is I’m never cutting out what I love, which is Starbucks.”

4. Find a Favorite Workout
“I don’t like any kind of exercise other than running. And I love it because it’s about the music. For me, running is about blasting a whole bunch of new songs and running to the beat. It’s also good because it makes me find a gym wherever I am. I’m very much out in the world, and I love exploring the places we go when we tour. It’s important for me to live a full life.”

5. Health = Happiness
“I always try to see what makes me most comfortable and happy. Because right now, to have happiness, that’s the main priority. Health is a big part of being happy.”
