3. Eat High Vibrational Foods
High Vibrational foods are mainly fruits and vegetables that'll help you vibrate on a high frequency resulting in confidence, happiness, love, etc. The result of a healthy gut is a healthy brain! Being mindful of what you consume on a daily basis can have either a negative or positive affect on your mood, happiness, health, etc. Shameless Plug; I still eat meat; however, I make sure I am also giving my body fruits and vegetables daily! Don't stop eating meat; however, limit the amount of processed foods, sugars, and caffeine you consume on a daily basis.
A list of high vibrational foods includes, but not limited to:
Leafy greens- collards, kale, spinach and/or cabbage
Fruits- blueberries, pomegranates, apples, oranges, etc.
Vegetables- carrots, cucumbers, broccoli, peppers; etc.

I live by the quotes- "Give yourself flowers while you can still smell them" -SouLvenir ; why? Because if you don't shower yourself with love then who is supposed to? Grab your favorite flowers and place them in a place in your home you will see everyday and let it be a reminder that you growing and blooming everyday. This will remind you to be gentle with yourself and extend grace as needed.
