She may be best-known for playing Sloan in HBO’s Entourage, but for 46-year-old Emmanuelle Chriqui—she can currently be seen in Superman & Lois—life these days is a bit more easy-going.
“Wellness to me is cultivating good, empowering habits that make you feel good from the inside out. It’s a combination of mental, spiritual and physical. When these things are aligned for me, I feel my absolute best. When one is off, it affects everything else.”
“I am a very regimented person. I start every single day with TM (transcendental meditation). If I have a 5 a.m. call time, I will wake up 30 minutes earlier to get it in—it’s been a game-changer for me. It clears the cobwebs and makes me feel grounded and present. Usually, that’s followed by a hike or Pilates class and a green juice or smoothie. And ALWAYS a coffee!”
“To be honest, my routine hasn’t changed that much in the last five years or more! Only that I try to be in nature much more, and I have been reading before bed more than ever.”
“My ultimate idea of relaxing is getting a two-hour massage, or getting cozy, lighting a fire and reading a book or just watching a movie.”
“For fitness, I swear by Pilates. Now, in my mid-40s, I am stronger, leaner and more flexible than ever before.”
“Sleep can be problematic, but melatonin does the trick for me. The other thing I swear by is clean and healthy nutrition—there is no question that, when I cut out sugar and gluten, everything just seems better, and of course meditation! Absolute game-changer, especially for clarity and warding off anxiety!”
