How Mad Men's Christina Hendricks Keeps Fit

Her surprising secret to staying in shape!

continued...

"Be nice to yourself!" she says.

Unplug. Just because the world seems wired for Wi-Fi doesn't mean you have to use it. Hendricks spends her time on airplanes lost in books. "Reading a novel is such a treat for me," she says.  

Say Yes to Comfort Food Every So Often. "For me, it's spaghetti with red sauce," says Hendricks. "It's not that hard to make, and it's one thing you can order from room service that they won't mess up."  

Stay Connected. The less time you have to catch up with friends and family, says Hendricks, the more you probably need them. Especially if they're hands-on. "My husband is good at rubbing my shoulders when I need it!" she says.
