What words are you speaking over yourself in 2021?
Each day we speak 15,000-16,000 words and think 30,000 words!
For a relationship to thrive we need to use a ratio of 5:1 positive to negative comments.
What is the relationship you have with your own body?
Do you speak words over yourself so that your body can thrive?
Our words and thoughts have a direct impact on how we view our bodies and our lives.
"Your actions will always follow your beliefs. If you accept defeat then that's what you will get".

What a fantastic resource
I am truly an MS gym junkie and I think this podcast series is amazing. Brooke is so entertaining and I love how she interviews people and topics that are so pertinent to the MS community. MS is so rampant worldwide this is such a great avenue to bring hope and knowledge to those suffering with this challenging disease.
