Nicole Scherzinger has her most "interesting" ideas when she's out running.
The 'Poison' singer tries to stay active and finds getting out on her own also inspires her creatively and it is easy to get "lost" in her thoughts.
She said: "If I don't have time to work out but want to do something active, I always run.
"Not only am I getting fit but I often get lost in my own ideas and I get to be so creative and come up with the most interesting things."
But if she wants to bond with other people, the 37-year-old beauty will opt for a tough spinning class.
She added: "A spinning class is also a great alternative as I feel there's a collaborative effort with everyone taking part in the class.
"I always try to work out in the morning too, so I don't procrastinate and it gets done."
Nicole never "deprives" herself of the foods she wants to eat, but she makes sure she doesn't overindulge.
She told Britain's OK! magazine: "When I have time, I love to cook and eat Mexican food, pasta and truffles - I don't believe in depriving yourself as then you build up a real urge to have it.
"But I believe in everything in moderation and working out to keep fit.
"Try to eat smaller portions, but eat often,
"I would also avoid eating late at night, so your body has time to digest before you go to bed.
"I always try to eat fresh, so eat things you know are clean."
