Day 3: 13 Day Mind, Body, Soul Cleanse

Day 3, y’all ready?

So far we have talked about drinking warm lemon water to cleanse the body and alternate nostril breathing to cleanse the mind but today we will talk about a cleansing practice for your soul…setting boundaries.

I identify setting boundaries in your relationships as a serious soul cleansing practice because it will save you so much time, energy, heartache and confusion when done intentionally and from the heart.

My Other Musings

Find Your Chill with Lavender Essential Oil

The Period Chronicles

My PCOS Story

Did ya’ll know September is PCOS Awareness Month?  (Also, my birthday month ????)

For this month’s Period Chronicles, I wanted to share more on my journey to hormonal wellness.
