“I am someone who has to move,” Ariana DeBose explained how exercise affects her inner self.
Ariana DeBose discusses how exercise has improved her mental health.
The Oscar winner, 31, is the cover star of Women’s Health’s Beginners issue and shares her health secrets.
“Exercising is also part of my self-care routine. I am someone who must relocate. I need to get energy flowing through my body or else I become stagnant and, to be honest, a little depressed “She stated.
DeBose continued, “It’s important to break a sweat.” “So, you know, I make time to move, exercise, and sweat it out. Sweating is extremely beneficial to your health. This is also beneficial to your skin. Get the toxins out, you understand?”
Aside from exercising, the Prom actress believes that getting enough sleep is essential to her health.
“I can’t function if I don’t get enough sleep,” she told Women’s Health. “I believe in replenishment.”
DeBose has had a busy year, winning her first Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in March for her role as Anita in West Side Story.
The actress won her first Academy Award at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, defeating Jessie Buckley (The Lost Daughter), Judi Dench (Belfast), Kirsten Dunst (The Power of the Dog), and Aunjanue Ellis (King Richard).
“Dreams come true,” DeBose said in her acceptance speech. The actress won for playing the same role that costar Rita Moreno won an Oscar for in the original film exactly 60 years ago. In her speech, she referred to Moreno as her “divine inspiration,” She expressed gratitude that her Anita “paved the way for tonnes of Anitas like me.”
“Lastly, imagine this little girl in the backseat of a white Ford Focus,” DeBose said in her speech. When you look into her eyes, you see a queer openly queer Afro-Latina woman of color who found her strength.
