Briana Lane Talks Health and Wellness
Lane learned Brook Lynn’s history with other Port Charles citizens, jumping into the genre with ease as she earned her own fanbase and the respect of her fellow actors in the process. Soap Hub recently chatted with Lane about her thoughts on health and wellness in this installment of Wellness Wednesday.
Soap Hub: What is your “go-to” activity for health and wellness?
Briana Lane: I go for a long walk every morning followed by a yoga class. I used to do high-intensity workouts but I found that the ones that calmed my nervous system down were most beneficial to my overall physical and mental health.
Why is wellness important to you?
It’s an element in our life that we can control that massively affects our mental and physical health and can drastically change our lives so I make it my #1 priority because I think everything stems from there.
How do you keep a healthy mind?
My morning walks are super-meditative. I don’t listen to music or make phone calls. It’s a sacred time for me to be quiet with myself, work through anything I need more reflection on, and just overall helps make me a happier person. Also therapy! Both my parents are psychologists, so maybe I’m a liiiitle biased but I believe that a little therapy goes a long way for me, personally.
Do you have any wellness tips or tricks?
Water, water, water, and more water! I drink a ton after every meal and throughout the day and that helps a lot with my energy levels. I also cut out sugar. That has been a lifesaver! I eat intuitively (no diet, no rules) except no sugar which is pretty easy to follow! I have so much more energy and mental clarity!
