Hayley claims that giving performances on stage is the best workout for her. The continuous motivation from her fans keeps her going and an hour long cardio session makes her feel good.
When at home, she enjoys having ice creams and candies. But, she eats in moderation. When on tour, she strictly stays away from these sweet products. Her throat and body do not allow her to eat after 8 pm (most of the time), as she gets acid reflux. Hayley never forgets to have breakfast to remain healthy. She drinks herbal tea with an antibacterial Manuka honey.
