How To Be Consistent and Accountable All The Time

We surveyed our community and consistency was by far the top struggle that people faced when embarking on a new journey, particularly their health transformation.

I'm worried I'll lose motivation and stop...

I know I get distracted...

My greatest worry is being inconsistent and not following through to see results…

Even though this is important, I don't know if I can stay fully present...

I always seem to "fall off the wagon..."

Is this familiar chatter in your mind too? We can all relate to this fear, right. When we start something new, in the beginning we're all excited and we jump right in. But after a while the excitement fades and the reality that this is a marathon and not a sprint sets in. Exhale. We either dig deep, put our heads down and commit, or we stop and fall off. 

I don't know about you, but when I set out to do something and stop, I get pretty disappointed with myself. Inconsistency damages our confidence, has us questioning our worth and whether or not we can do anything right. It also makes it really hard to go after the next goal and embark on the next leg of our journey.

Inconsistency weakens our faith and without faith, we're stuck. And for me, when I feel stuck, I panic. I don't like these feelings, so I do everything in my power to keep my promises to myself. If I want to do something, am honest about my capacity, and start it, I'm going to stay the course. It may take me a while, but a snail's pace is better than no pace.

I recorded a short video sharing my 6 keys to consistency. Here's the link. Let us know if you found it helpful. 

With love always,
Selima

P.S. We would love it if you shared this video with the folks in your community who also struggle with inconsistency. 🙏🏽

There aren’t exactly hundreds of “herbalist” jobs on Indeed, LinkedIn, or Monster for which we can apply. The work is deeply meaningful and rewarding, but let’s be honest, satisfaction without financial stability is stressful.

Recipe for Bacterial Vaginosis and Yeast Infections
Recipe for Bacterial Vaginosis and Yeast Infections

September 21, 2022

Bacterial vaginosis is the most common form of smelly vaginal discharge. It’s caused by a shift in the vaginal microbiome. The ratio of beneficial to harmful bacteria shifts where you have less of the former, predominately lactobacillus species, and an overgrowth of the latter. 

This creates an asymptomatic (most common) or symptomatic infection that produces a grayish/off-white, thin discharge, and fishy smell that may be more noticeable during your period or after sex. Pain, burning, itching, and painful or difficult urination can also occur, but these symptoms overlap with a lot of other conditions, so it can indicate another concern to get checked out

In this video, I share 9 holistic tips that help restore your vaginal flora and show you how to make your own herbal vaginal suppositories that provide relief. The herbal formula is also supportive for yeast infections and other forms of vaginitis.
