Indulge in Self-Care
Emma's life is incredibly busy. However, she stresses the importance of prioritizing self-care. One of her go-to ways to relax and unwind? Taking a long, hot soak and putting on a podcast. "I love filling my tub, putting a face mask on and listening to podcasts about other female entrepreneurs," she told E!. How can baths do your body and mind good? They have been linked to better sleep and even found helpful to minimize anxiety and depression. One recent study even found that they may even boast cardiovascular benefits.
Try a Plant-Based Diet
Emma, a longtime vegan, has her own vegan food company. "I am a huge food lover and I grew up in the food industry, so in 2018 I started my own food company, Emma Leigh & Co. I produce vegan and vegetarian frozen healthy food, including my famous empanadas that I absolutely cannot live without! My food products can be purchased on QVC, in different grocery stores and are coming to Costco soon!" she told E!.
Drink Up…Water, That Is
"I have a busy life and I drink a lot of water throughout the day," Emma told E! about her approach to hydration. However, instead of drinking plain water, she adds some fulvic acid drops to it. "My fave water is Blk. Water. I also carry Blk. Drops in my purse so I can add it to my to coffee and smoothies to make sure I get all the minerals I need," she said. According to the Mayo Clinic, hydration is important for a variety of reasons. Water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues.
Take a Hike
Emma loves a good hike. "Getting outside is so good for the body and the mind," she told Women's Health, revealing that she hikes 5 miles per day. "And you're getting that nice little glute workout."
Do Pilates and Yoga
Emma is also a fan of yoga and pilates, both of which offer major mind-body benefits. Research has found that pilates exercises are designed to increase muscle strength, endurance, and flexibility, and to improve posture and balance. And, the American Osteopathic Association reveals that nearly all the 100 different types, or schools, of yoga include breathing exercises, meditation, and assuming postures (sometimes called asana or poses) that stretch and flex various muscle groups.
Emma maintains that cooking is good for her mental health. "Cooking for me is therapeutic," Emma told Women's Health. "I love being creative, and I never go by a recipe. It focuses my mind."
