    Personal Best: Q&A With Mayim Bialik


    5. Fit Tricks

    “I recently took up jogging, and while I am not quite a marathoner yet -- I generally do about 2 miles these days -- I do find it relaxing. I also lift weights, which helps me maintain muscle.”

    6. Stress (and Dust) Busting

    “I don’t watch much TV (except for WWII documentaries, lately), but I do find cleaning relaxing. Give me a few hours to myself with a bottle of Dr. Bronner’s soap, some plain vinegar, and my microfiber cloth, and I will clean my whole house -- totally healthfully and naturally. I don’t clean with any chemicals I wouldn’t want my kids around.”

    7. Trailer Stash

    “I really love essential oils, and I have this diffuser from Young Living that I keep with me on set. I love the lavender one as well as the combo oils, which are blends that have certain specifications, such as one called Peace & Calming.”

    8. One Fine Day

    “My perfect 'me time' is rather mellow stuff. I go for a run. I’d make a big green smoothie. I’d head to the craft store, the one that I’ve been going to since I was a kid. I’d also take a nap.”

    9. Beauty Basics

    “Three things I always have in my purse. A gloss or lipstick on hand, usually one from Hourglass, which makes cruelty-free, vegan products. A tube of hand lotion: I love the Duette Luxe Lip & Hand Creme from the French brand Votre Vu; it smells like cake. Finally, a vial of food-grade lavender oil.”

    10. Wanderlust

    “I’d love to go to Japan; I haven’t been there and I’m fascinated with the art, culture, and history, in particular Samurai history.”
