Holidays, Meet a Healthy Mindset

We’re back with more goodness from our chat with Leeza Villagomez from YOGADEN Health Spa in Corona. In addition to being part of the exciting health and wellness opportunities coming to Bedford in 2022, Leeza shared a few mindful tips on how to enjoy the holiday season while prioritizing your wellness.

1. Breathe In. Breathe Out.

The very first thing you learn to do in yoga is to breathe properly. Leeza tells us that breathing techniques can both better your performance in the gym and ease your mind from everyday stresses. The holiday season is supposed to be filled with joy—so be sure to take a moment each day to focus on your breathing to enhance your state of mind and release any tension, anxiety or negative energy you may be holding onto.

2. Mind Over Matter.

Health goes beyond the physical, and the second big element about starting your wellness journey begins with your mind. Setting intentions is part of the practice, and it easily flows into your everyday life. Whether it’s focusing on strength, gratitude or self-care, starting each morning with an intention is a positive and empowering way to always come back to what’s really important to you—no matter what time of year it is.

3. You Are What You Eat.

It’s no secret that the key to feeling good is fueling your body with all the right foods. One of the most important ingredients to a healthy lifestyle is water. Leeza suggests starting each day with two glasses and to drink the majority of your water for the day by noon. It can be challenging to keep your normal diet during the holidays, especially when everyone is bringing their incredible family recipes to share at the office. To that, Leeza reminds us that it’s ok to indulge—but moderation is the key.
