Rachel Brosnahan's self-care

Rachel Brosnahan makes time for "self-care" when she gets overwhelmed.

The 'Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' star feels it is important to take time for herself and says taking an "extra hour of sleep" does wonders for her and her body.

She said: "Sometimes I find that the best thing for my body is to just take that extra hour of sleep and not work out. I'm good at making time for self-care when I get overwhelmed. I read a book or take a bath or snuggle with my doggies and watch 'Survivor'. Or I have coffee with friends."

And the 28-year-old actress admits she felt like she was "dropping weight in an unhealthy way" during the first season of her Amazon show but she turned to bone broth to keep her going.

She added to the March issue of Shape magazine: "My stay-healthy secret when I'm working 14- or 15-hour days on Mrs. Maisel is bone broth. For the first season of the show, I was feeling very tired. And because I have a fast metabolism, I felt like I was dropping weight in an unhealthy way. Bone broth has collagen and fat in it, along with all kinds of vitamins and minerals, and I really think it helped me. I was the only person on our set who didn't get sick that season."

Rachel's role in 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' has earned her critical acclaim and she has been raking in the awards including a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series.

During her acceptance speech, she said: "I have wanted to be an actor for as long as I can remember and to be able to count you all in this room as my peers let alone to stand up on this stage is beyond my wildest dreams. Thank you so much. I have a habit of getting very flustered up here and forgetting to thank a lot of vitally important people to my team. [I also want to praise] the unsung background actors who work the same hours as us and share the same union as us. I couldn't be luckier to be a part of this amazing group of artists."
