The 32-year-old actress stays in shape by following an active lifestyle, which basically means she loves a good workout. As a matter of fact, exercising is her means of releasing all the stresses she gets. This is why it’s important for her to try different forms of exercises to spice things up. “It’s more about my state of mind than anything else,” she shared. “Whenever I’m stressed or feel a lot of tension, I find the only way to get rid of it is to exercise. I do anything and everything: swim, walk, do yoga, walk my pup. And I ride my bike everywhere. I don’t have a regimen I stick to – I don’t tell myself I “must” do this or that. I’ve just always enjoyed being active,” she said in an interview.
