Despite the overnight sucess of Bridgerton, Phoebe Dynevor has actually been in the public eye for years - however, during that time, she hasn't been tempted to undertake any dramatic transformations or try any mad health fads to stay in shape.
Aside from the obligatory lockdown at-home workout posts, her Instagram is generally fitness-free — so, we have rounded up her simple approach to her healthy lifestyle.
She walks every day
Often photographed in sportswear, the actor walks every day to help keep anxiety at bay — sometimes with her dog, sometimes with her fellow actor mother, Sally Dynevor.
"You see what it is for your mental health to be in the public eye. I meditate, I have a therapist, I walk every day. There are things I do to ground myself, because it's quite hectic at the moment," she previously told Bazaar.
To cut back on her emissions and to get moving, she opts to cycle around when she’s not walking.
She practices meditation
Phoebe is big into Transcendental Meditation (TM), a form of silent repeated mantra meditation which involves practicing a state of relaxed awareness and avoiding distracting thoughts, to ease anxiety and promote self-realisation. It was popularised in the mid-fifties by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and made extra-famous by TM fans The Beatles.
While TM has been used as a helpful tool by many people, it should be noted that the group has been accused of cultic dynamics by some former adherents, some of whom made up Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's inner circle (the group denies these allegations).
Dynevor shared on her Instagram during the pandemic: "2020 has been chaotic to say the least, I don’t think we often realise the effects that it has on our psyche. The best thing I did for myself this year was learning @transcendentalmeditation and knowing that beneath the chaos of our minds there’s a state of pure consciousness, no noise, just being."
She stays active on holiday
As well as cycling in Croatia with her Bridgerton co-star Sabrina Bartlett, she takes to the slopes every once in a while — both excellent exercises for toning the lower body.
She mixes up her workouts
Not one to stick to any one particular exercise, she’s experimented with different types and tempos.
She prioritises sleep
While some people might cut short sleep in favour of an early-morning workout, Dynevor is of the sleep-first frame of mind.
"Sleep is definitely the best self-care ritual, especially with night shoots and early call times," she told us. "It also helps to make you feel at your most empowered as it helps you give everything you do 110 per cent. Then if you fail, you can hold your head high knowing you tried your best."
She’s mostly vegan
In an Instagram post about the climate crisis, she spoke about her predominantly vegan diet, which is known to significantly reduce greenhouse gases compared to a diet that includes meat and dairy.
"I mostly eat a plant-based diet, but there’s still so much more that I could be doing to help shape the world that we and the next generation will live in," she wrote.
