Soltane Café


Wellness is way more than just a "number" or just a fitness goal >> to us over here! It's beyond that. It wasn't until I started a great relationship with my MIND that I finally felt good in my body. Funny huh? I used to only chase the "outside work" hours at the gym, etc. but what about my mindset? ⚖️ . It doesn't happen over night, but I challenge you to become more aware of your thoughts 💭 and what your also feeding your brain as you do your body ✨ . I love doing daily gratitude writings, and writing out goals and ideas in a notebook 📖 anyone else like good ole fashioned writing things out?! 🤗 I find that more GOOD things i write, the more good things HAPPEN! ♻️ I also used to think "podcasts" were lame 🙄 // ohhhhh girl, if you only listened back then! >> your mind will always believe everything you tell it: feed it faith, feed it truth, feed it with L O V E! . Who can get down with writing things down for even just a month!?💕#theprogressproject
