Orange Is the New Black star Alysia Reiner: “Be present in every moment— with your kids, with your work, with your workout.”

Orange Is the New Black star Alysia Reiner recently opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her 5-year-old daughter Livia, the benefits of staying active and her hit Netflix series. When asked about her daughter, she shared, “She is pure heaven. I am so smitten. She is a little scientist – she created the character ‘Volcano Girl’ to be for Halloween – who wants to take the energy from volcanoes and turn them into electricity. She is super goofy and loves to make everyone laugh. But she is also so kind and loving. When asked how she balances health and fitness, a busy career, and being a mom, she said, “I think we are all sometimes looking for that magic combination or equation — be it in our schedule or workouts. Honestly, I think for me for today the best advice I could give myself today is gratitude and breathe. Be present in every moment — with your kids, with your work, with your workout. Whatever you are doing, do it to the fullest. And lots of gratitude for the moment — find the magic.” Alysia feels strongly about fitness and health and says, “I think staying active is so important. I actually just talked about the importance of fitness for moms in an article for well&good, but I think it is equally important to stay active with your kids. They do what you do.”

You can watch Alysia in the Season 1 of Orange is the New Black on Netflix. Alysia shares about the show, “We have the best cast in the world!”
