Exercise was also mandatory. Although Ariana Grande has a very busy work schedule and no opportunity to constantly train in the gym, she nevertheless spends several hours every day physically active. Her favorite activities are: dancing, walking with her beloved dog Coco, climbing the Hollywood hills, swimming, and classes on the elliptical trainer. Sometimes these workouts alternate with strength exercises. Finally, the last point of achieving a stellar figure, according to Ariana Grande, is daily meditation. It helps to clear thoughts, balance the mind, and also during it you can distract from problems. The girl believes that the main thing is not to be thin, but to be happy, to love yourself before and after Ariana Grande, and then the results will not make you wait long.
