In a recent interview with People, LeAnn revealed that she recently started focusing more on self-care. “About six months ago, I started really focusing on taking care of myself,” she told them. Breathwork and meditation are an essential part of her new routine. “A big part of my life has been overriding my body because I’ve had to show up and be on all the time. I’ve had to care about what people think of me for so long. So not abandoning myself and what I need has been a big shift.”
LeAnn tries to work out four days a week, no matter where she is. “I take a jump rope with me everywhere I go, so it’s easy to do and easy to do bodyweight workouts in my dressing room,” she told Us Weekly. During her workouts she tries to focus on her glutes. “I do like my butt,” she confessed. “I did something on Instagram called Tight Tush Tuesday and everybody kind of freaked out about it, so it’s become a thing. I work pretty hard on my butt.” Tennis is another one of her favorite ways to sweat.
LeAnn has a workout buddy in her husband, Eddie Cibrian, who is “on the same page” as her when it comes to health and fitness. “He likes to be a boy when he works out and make noises and grunt and stuff. I’m like, ‘I can’t even deal with you right now,'” she revealed. The duo go on walks and hikes together, take SoulCycle classes, and help each other with healthy eating. “When I first met him, he was not the healthiest eater at all,” she says. “But I think I’ve gotten him over on my team.”
LeAnn maintains a healthy diet. She usually starts the day with a green smoothie, and eats a healthy lunch and dinner, maybe something with a cauliflower base, topped with a protein like marinated and baked tempeh or grilled chicken, and lots of greens and veggies. However, she does allow herself to indulge on occasion. “Sometimes nourishment is the cake, the chips, the pizza, and the mac and cheese,” she told Women’s Health.
LeAnn is a big fan of meditation and chanting, even releasing a chant record, CHANT: The Human & The Holy, in 2020. “I’ve been creating chants to infuse and send out alongside of my @soulofeverle candles and I had no idea how they would be received, or how much you would connect with my new adventures. I felt so inspired by the overwhelming LovE that you sent my way that I knew I wanted to expand upon the clear nod from the universe that I was on to something special,” she wrote.
