Apart from her diet plan, the Irish beauty stays in shape by sticking to an active lifestyle. She’s always on-the-go so this helps her in terms of movements. When she’s not busy, she hits the gym where she enjoys some me-time, either by just doing the basics like cardio or attending a yoga class. She also maintains her slim figure by being active outdoors. She loves to engage in activities that don’t make her feel like she’s working out. This can be in the form of hiking or swimming or even sports.
