Gigi Lately: My Mantra For 2023
If you’re new around here, welcome. If you’ve been following me for a while, thank you. Either way, you should know that de la heart was born out of the love and personal passion for cultivating & delivering my knowledge, most recent discoveries, and best-kept wellness secrets to my community. And because I’m always looking for accessible and natural practices to restore and balance my daily life, these are always changing and evolving to create transformation. This is a little bit of what I’ve been up to so far in 2023…
Most Frequently Used: The Body Tool
My mantra for 2023 is “elevate”, elevating in every aspect of my life, including my self-care routine. I picked up and have been so consistent with my lymphatic drainage ritual by using my body tool daily. I’ve noticed less overall inflammation, reduced fluid retention and a more sculpted physique. If you use it, it works!
I started working with Dr. Mark Zhuk who is the medical director of The Q Institute, a longevity clinic in downtown Miami.
Dr. Zhuk incorporates his patient’s lifestyle and diet into their wellness plans and focuses on the whole picture. I haven’t done a deep dive into my health in over 5 years, so I felt it was time. Stay tuned for how this process evolves!
I’ve been practicing yoga now for a little over 10 years, and I naturally go through ebbs and flows when it comes to my practice. Sometimes I’m just not that into it and mix it in with other forms of movement. But right now, I’m going through a yoga craze, I’ve been practicing daily and really sticking and focusing on elevating my practice. The yoga hype is real fam.
Most Recent Treatment: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections
Plasma is a component of your blood that contains special proteins that help your blood to clot. It also contains proteins that support cell growth and skin rejuvenation. Blood is drawn from your arm, placed in a machine that separates the platelets and re-injected into you. I did it in my face and neck and my skin is glowing! Painful, but I highly recommend this treatment. In Miami, see Dr. Stacy Chimento.
Most Recent Trip: Bogota, Colombia
We kicked off the year with a trip back to the homeland. I originally had to go for work, to check on the production of our body tools and other products we manufacture there. So, I figured I would bring the entire family with me for a little bit of business & pleasure. It’s so special to show my kids where I grew up and see how much they love it there. Can’t wait to go back!
Next Trip: A Romantic Getaway
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, hubby and I decided to take off for a few days sans kids to disconnect, connect to each other, and nurture our love.
Hint: amor & mezcal ;)
