How to Create a Holistic Lifestyle to Achieve Your Goals [Episode #642]
This week’s topic is: How to Create a Holistic Lifestyle to Achieve Your Goals
This is such a wonderful, important, rich topic that we want to get into as we step into 2022, because it’s true. We can say that we want this or that, such as, having our own business or wanting to find a soulmate this year. Perhaps it’s dropping 10 pounds and being really healthy. We can say these things, however, if we don’t create a full lifestyle to support our energy, our environment, or our efforts, we will likely be sabotaging ourselves.
We don’t put our best foot forward in terms of really giving power to our goals and our dreams and creating what we want. And that is our birthright. That is our potential. We are unlimited in what we can create here on planet earth and our lives.
I truly believe that, however, we need to really work with our energy and nurture our energy across all of the cornerstones. And this holistic lifestyle that we talk about here at Solluna with our Four Cornerstones is so useful. It’s so practical and so powerful.

Kimberly: 00:01 Hey Beauties. And welcome back to our Thursday, Q&A podcast where our topic this week is How to Create a Holistic Lifestyle to Achieve Your Goals. And this is such a wonderful, important, rich topic that we wanna get into as we step into 2022, because it’s true. We can say that want this or that I want to, you know, have my own business, or I want to find my soulmate this year. I wanna, you know, drop 10 pounds and be really healthy. We can say these things, but if we don’t create a full lifestyle to support our energy, our environment, our efforts, you know, we are like sabotaging ourselves. We don’t put our best foot forward in terms of really giving power to our goals and our dreams and creating what we want. And that is our birthright. That is our potential. We are unlimited in what we can create here on planet earth and our lives.
Kimberly: 01:02 I truly believe that, but we need to really work with our energy and nurture our energy across all of the cornerstones. So a holistic lifestyle to me, I’ll say right at the top of the show is around our food. What we’re eating, how we’re taking care of our body, which is our second cornerstone, everything from gut health to write movement, sleep supplements. Now emotional wellbeing and mental health is a huge one. How are we protecting our own energy from getting dissipated, getting worn down, getting overstressed, giving too much energy, too much power away to other people. How do we stay out of emotional drama? How do we stay equanimity? And how do we, um, increase our emotional resilience so that we stay grounded and safe within ourselves as we continue forward. This is a huge way that a lot of us just create chaos in our life and everything from relationship drama to just getting too caught up in validation outside of ourselves.
Kimberly: 02:04 So that’s a really big one as well. We wanna support ourselves. So we’re not giving so much energy <laugh> to all this mental, emotional drama, and then spiritual growth wise. This is the most important one. Really. If we are looking at it in that way, everything builds, everything supports each other, but from a spiritual standpoint, connecting to the true self and standing in our own full essence and power and bringing that into the equation. When we’re talking about achieving our goals means every conversation will be different. You will be more magnetic, you will draw more opportunities to you. You will draw more of the right con connections and friendships, and you will also just experience more creativity in the ways you’re looking at what you’re wanting to create in the first place, whether it’s, um, laying out a business plan or, you know, tackling a big PowerPoint presentation for work or whatever it is when we are connected to spirit inside of us.

Kimberly: 03:07 When we’re more aware of this resource of unlimited creativity that we can learn to tap into through our introspection practices and our meditation practices, boom, everything just starts to expand. There is more synchronicity in our life. There is more harmony. And so this holistic lifestyle that we talk about here at Solluna with our four cornerstones is so useful. It is so practical and it is so powerful. So I can’t get, I can’t wait to get more into it today.

Question #1 around the topic of: How to Create a Holistic Lifestyle to Achieve Your Goals: I’m a newbie here Solluna and would love a breakdown of what a holistic lifestyle means to you Kimberly? This is a goal of mine this coming year! 😉
Kimberly: 06:45 My love for being here with me today feels like intimate important time where we get to talk about all of these great things. And of course all the energy of the community come in with these questions. Let’s get into it. Now, our first question comes from Claudia, who lives in Washington. Hi, my love. Thank you for writing in happy. You could be here with us. Thank you for being part of the community. And she, you write, I’m a newbie here at Sal Luna, and I would a breakdown of what a holistic lifestyle means to you. Kimberly. This is the goal of mine this coming year. So Claudia, thank you so much. This is a great question. And so the word holistic to me means, even though it’s spelled with an H holistic, it is of the whole, so whole w H O L E like a, you can envision a whole pie or, um, you know, a whole anything.
Kimberly: 07:47 I like to think in terms of circles sometimes, but yeah, like the wholeness. So think of us each and every single one of us, we, our, um, we are, are a drop of cosmic consciousness, so to speak, we are unique beings that are here alive and breathing. There is some of our being that we understand from a scientific perspective, we understand how many bones we have and how many organs we have and so on and so forth. But there is much that we don’t necessarily understand in facts and figures and numbers. You know, every neuroscientist will tell you that we don’t know everything about the mind when the brain, we don’t understand how everything works exactly. But we do know that we are this alive pulsating dynamic being with incredible potential. And when I speak about a holistic lifestyle, the goal is to support our wholeness because when we support our wholeness, we are our most powerful, we are able to express at the highest caliber, our individuality and our purpose.
Kimberly: 09:11 The fact that we are here alive and breathing me, that we are meant to be here. And each of us has a unique purpose, a unique contribution for the world. If we approach our wellness or our lifestyle in a fragmented way, meaning let’s say we just focus on one thing. So we may focus on eating really healthy, but we are stressed out all the time. We don’t sleep well. We don’t meditate. We don’t take any time for ourselves to be still introspect. So even though we eat really well, we actually get sick and our bodies break down and we experience inflammation and bloat. And that is not what we wanna create. Of course, on another side, let’s say we work out a lot and we run every morning and we do this full, you know, we work out as well, but at the same time, same thing, we don’t manage our mental health and we don’t have any tools or regular practices that we call on to help us feel grounded and, um, free of anxiety during the day.
Kimberly: 10:22 Maybe we reason that since we work out so much, that we don’t need to eat so healthily and we have a lot of, um, binge meals and, and cheat foods and so on and so forth. So you can see that neither of these really is, you know, I don’t think it’s what any of us wants. So we ask ourself, what do we want? And for me, and I think for a lot of us, you know, in broad terms, we wanna feel good. You know, the name of our podcast, feeling good, means feeling connected to ourselves. We feel our energy. We are in touch with our emotions. We have tools to process and release. And so we feel lighter and more creative and joyful and blissful, and we feel more and more freedom, right? These, you know, I’m just saying this, but I think it resonates with me and I hope it resonates with you too.
Kimberly: 11:20 So if these are our goals, the best and most effective way to support our goals is to support the wholeness of us. And so this is where the four cornerstones, this four cornerstone lifestyle comes from Claudia. It is acknowledging that we are multi dimensional, complex beings with different facets. We have a physical part of us, an emotional, mental, spiritual part of us. So the four cornerstones are food body, emotional wellbeing and spiritual growth. And what always happens is if we find ourselves struggling in one area, let’s say we’re really struggling to get past food cravings and to just make food more useful and know what to eat and know what to do and to do it, and then keep the weight where you want it to be. And so on and so forth. I can almost guarantee that if you’ve struggled with food for years, as I have that, we need to look holistically instead of deeper into that one.
Kimberly: 12:18 Cornerstone. So instead of obsessing more and more about food and nitpicking, this one thing, you know, maybe there’s more riboflavin that I need or, you know, it’s, oh man, I had a little bit, two extra grams of sugar are today. This my, my new shot, instead of going deeper, we go broader. So, oh, I’m having a lot of issues with food. Where am I in, you know, lacking, nurturing myself and my emotional wellbeing for instance, oh, I need to intro respect more. I need to relax. I need to find stillness. I need to process what happened in the day and let it go feels really good for me to journal after I meditate, I have a little bit more time to understand, and then I’m not feeling so frenzied. Okay. So that time that we spend in emotional wellbeing, and there’s certainly a lot of more directed actions that I provide a Sal Luna circle.
Kimberly: 13:15 So it’s when we focus there that we start to notice automatically that our food cornerstones starts to, to flow more and just to have more, um, easefulness in it. So that is really the power of living this holistic lifestyle. Claudia is that we, we, you know, sometimes it’s not, it’s like the, the leak is coming from one place, but it started somewhere else. And so it’s easy to focus on, you know, food because we can see it or just our bodies because our bodies are, you know, denser, physical, but really the emotional and spiritual cornerstone is, you know, largely neglected by a lot of us. And these are where the jewels are. When I started focusing on meditating and connecting in everything, amplified in my life, my love, I found my soulmate. Um, I just found more, more joy in running Solluna we attracted even more people coming in that were amazing, just endless ideas and creativity.
Kimberly: 14:20 I never, you know, not feeling stagnant. It just, just grows and grows. And I know the same can happen for you as well. So again, food body, emotional wellbeing, spiritual growth when we create our routines and our rhythms. And I’m sure, um, in one of these next question, students I’ll get into this. So please stay tuned to Claudia. We naturally just start to build, um, aspects of the cornerstone into our routine. So we don’t have to think so much. Oh, am I hitting every cornerstone? We can just naturally start to prioritize, um, different aspects. So for instance, in the morning, we have your hot water with lemon and we always prioritize seven, 10 minutes or more of meditation, but at least seven minutes. So it’s just becomes ingrained as a practice we’re spending time doing and making tea and elixers we’re else. So spending time sitting and tuning inward into our interstate and this energy is this, you know, creates externally. It starts from the inside out. So we really do wanna pay attention to our interstate. So a, I also cannot wait for you to read the new book, Claudia, especially, um, you know, for you, anyone listening to this, I think it’s for everybody, but I’m very excited for you to check it out for yourself. So, um, yeah. Thank you. My love. Welcome to the community. I’m so happy. You’re here. Please keep in touch with me and let me know how you do, how you, how you go into the new year and any other support that you need.
Question #2 around the topic of: How to Create a Holistic Lifestyle to Achieve Your Goals: What are your favorite go-to drinks that are healthy and warm your spirits during the winter season? I’m in the middle of detoxing from coffee and could use some suggestions for healthy alternatives without caffeine.
Kimberly: 15:19 All right. My loves, second question comes here from Toni who lives in Nebraska. Hello, Tony, thank you so much for your question. I’m so excited that you’re here with me energetically today. So sending you a big virtual hug and you write, what are some of your favorite go-to drinks that are healthy and warm your spirits during the winter season, I’m in the middle of detoxing from coffee, and I can use some suggestions for healthy alternatives without caffeine.
Kimberly: 16:26 So this is a great, um, this is a great question and it’s true that I think that, you know, know the way that so many of us turn to coffee, or for me it’s tea, it’s beyond just the actual consumption of the, the beverage, like what the beverage contains. It’s the ritual of it. It’s the ceremony of it. There’s something very comforting about hot drinks. There’s a, um, the feeling of it, it, you feel that hot drink in your hand, you start to drink it and you feel this hot liquid in your, in your belly, in your body. And it almost feels stabilizing from your core, right? You just feel that liquid and it’s in your stomach. So it’s almost grounding. And so it’s really wonderful to have warm drinks. And I like one of my favorite things to do is I make a warm Elixer last night.
Kimberly: 17:20 It was just simply ginger, you know, slice ginger is still one of my top go-tos I just like it a lot. And I like the subtlety of it. And I also know that Ginger’s so great for our digestion. So it’s just something I like to wear work with a lot. So I like to make that warm elixir and, um, you know, set myself up like prop up in bed. Or sometimes I’m down here in my woman cave in my office with my journal. And I just like to drink that elixir and drink and just sip it rather, and then write. And there’s something about it. It almost feels like the liquid just helps to open up my body and my mind and my emotions. And I just have that time. And it feels really sacred. It feels really beautiful. So yeah, us detoxing from coffee, coffee does have, you know, an acidic quality to it.
Kimberly: 18:15 So, you know, I’m a big non coffee drinker, but I think coffee’s okay sometimes, you know, not overdoing it as long as it’s organic, but if you are detoxing from it, that’s great too. So what I recommend is having a variety of, um, different alternatives. Some can be, um, more watery, just having knobs of ginger around and just slicing up fresh ginger and lemons. You can make that ginger lemon drink in the morning, as well as the evening. And also having a variety of, um, creamier, shall we say, or like thicker fattier drinks. And elixers, if you’re feeling like you want something that feels more, um, heavy or more like a dessert, that can be really great as well. So I like to have non-dairy milks around almond milk. He milk are, you know, some of my go-tos I make my own almond milk. And also, um, without caffeine, I like to work with herbs a lot.
Kimberly: 19:22 So, you know, in the podcast with Dr. Jay, we’ve talked about some different herbal mixtures, Ooh, there’s also this incredible Banyan Botanicals Ashwagandha Latte, which is another company that I like very much. And so it’s mixed already just add hot water, or you can add a, um, like a, you can heat up the hemp milk or coconut milk or whatever it is and mix that in. And it’s really delicious and it doesn’t have caffeine, and this is something you could have in the morning because ashwagandha is a strengthening herb it’s Bala, which means strength in Sanskrit. So, um, I highly recommend that or, um, you know, and also just staying hydrated in general, I think is really important for energy when you’re detoxing from coffee, just to have a lot of extra, um, you know, just room temperature, water at hand.
Kimberly: 20:20 So you can keep really nourishing yourself as you, um, as you go into your day and yeah, so just hot water with lemon, ginger, uh, herbs, and then, you know, having some, um, loose leaf teas or some, um, even tea bags of teas that you really like, that you can reach for in the winter just to again, keep yourself hydrated. But with that nice warm, uh, warming liquid, I think will feel really good. So, you know, Camma meal, peppermint are some of the standards out there. I also like Roy Best tea a lot. So these are some of your options, Toni, but yeah, warm MAIX is great way to stay present and feel like you’re really nourishing yourself at different times during the day. So thank you so much. My love for tuning in and thank you so much for being part of our community.
Kimberly: 21:14 All right. My loves, we have two more questions for you after the break. We’re gonna take a short break right now. And when we get back, I have the rest of the questions for you. So see you back here in just one moment.
Question #3 around the topic of: How to Create a Holistic Lifestyle to Achieve Your Goals: I’m honestly having a hard time working on all four cornerstones. How do you work this into your life Kimberly while being an entrepreneur and a mama?
Kimberly: 21:14 All right. My loves, we are back from our break. We have two more questions for you on this topic of creating a holistic lifestyle to achieve your goals. And our first question comes from Ava, who lives in Idaho. Thank you so much. My love for your question. I’m so excited that you wrote in sending you a big virtual hug out there to Idaho, and you write to Ava. I’m honestly having a hard time working on all four cornerstones. How do you work this into your life, Kimberly, while being an entrepreneur and a mama? So thank you my love for this.
Kimberly: 22:11 And I understand that when we’re starting to get into this lifestyle, well, how do I work on all four? And how do I actually create this? So what I wanna say upfront Ava, is that it’s not that you’re necessarily going to be doing more work it’s that you’re shifting your focus and being more expansive and going wider instead of going deeper. So for instance, you know, I know a lot of moms and a lot of people in general that say to me, oh, you know, I’m constantly searching for new recipes. I’m like racking my brain, what do I make for dinner? And there’s so much energy spent in that food cornerstone and try, always trying to make something new, um, that it’s like, then there’s not time to meditate to do other stuff because there’s so much emphasis there. So what I’m saying, um, Ava, is that we spread out our energy.
Kimberly: 23:05 So it’s not just one thing. So instead of you know, that someone racking their brain for million new recipes, it’s, you know, work with the recipes that, you know, and just mix up the spices, mix up the vet veggies, you know, throw something in, throw in, um, brussel sprouts instead of broccoli and see how that completely changes things. Or, you know, find a few dressings that are different and layer that on top of your baked veggies or whatever it is, but it doesn’t have to be so much emphasis on recipes and food and making things complicate it. So that’s the first thing is it’s not more work it’s that we’re working broader. So in a similar vein, I’ll give one more quick example instead of just, you know, pounding your body and doing like workout after workout. You know, I, I do know women and people that stack workouts and they do a few a day.
Kimberly: 23:55 And so there isn’t enough time to meditate or there isn’t enough time to make a healthy meal it’s balancing, oh, when I am more centered in my, when I am releasing my emotions, for instance, I’m processing and releasing, I actually have better digestion. There’s less stress. There’s less stress hormones. My belly fat is going away without all the arduous struggle. I mean, things open up across all areas of our life. When we work this way, I am calmer. I find myself more focused. I have less time or more time at work because I’m actually, um, more efficient. So number one, realize that it’s not about doing more work. It’s just a, a shift of perspective. The number two, Ava, we start to create junctures of time, particularly a, let’s say morning and evening, where we work in all four cornerstones and we stack them. So we don’t have to think too much about it.
Kimberly: 24:52 We just hit on all four. So morning routine, hot water with lemon GGS. Okay. Boom. There’s the food cornerstone. We’re starting the day off on a really good foot body wise take to SBO Solluna probiotics every morning without fail. Boom just hits something in the body. I’m nourishing my body. And the core, the most important system we work on from a physical standpoint is our GI tract. I’ve been harping on this for years. It’s our digestion that affects everything else. It’s our gut health that affects everything from our moods to our immunity, to our skin health, to our energy and so on. So boom, SBO probiotics, number three, we meditate ideally every day in the morning, prioritize it, please. This will really impact your, the tone and the flow of your energy as you go into the day. So you can try one of our optical enlightenment meditations, which are seven, eight minutes or so, please carve out that time.
Kimberly: 25:52 It is so worth it. So now we’re starting to, you know, we’ve hit the spiritual, um, growth cornerstone, and then an ideal world, Ava would spend at least five minutes in journaling or stillness, introspective. And some of the things we can think of here in the morning are how do I want to feel today? As I step into the day, what are some of the triggers or the, the things that have been going on for me lately that I need to be watchful for, I’ll be hypervigilant of this so that I can come back. I can just breathe into the moment, remind myself that I’m safe, or what can I let go of that kind of carried over from yesterday into today? What do I need to process? What emotions do I need to feel and release. And again, we, I give a lot more guidance in the Sal Luna circle.
Kimberly: 26:45 So I encourage you to join that if you are interested in taking it to the next level this year, Eva, in terms of self growth and achieving your dreams. So same thing in the evening, I stack those cornerstones as well. So BodyWise, I take a warm shower. I give myself AGA a lot of nights, which is a warm oil massage, which is soothing to your nerves, helps it’s wonderful for your skin. So I’m doing something really nice for the body food wise. I have a nice, healthy dinner, most nights. Um, I eat earlier, you know, we have family dinner, five 30 or six. So that gives me time to digest. Part of my evening practice is always meditation and journaling or inward time. So that at end of the end of the day, I think about what else can I let go of? What am I grateful for?
Kimberly: 27:39 So that emotional time, um, that I give, which is again, journaling, stillness, introspection with journal prompts, all of this really has made an enormous difference in my life because it’s, it has allowed me to see patterns that don’t work for me, that I have continued to act out for many years triggers. It helps me understand myself more, more, and it’s the light of meditation that allows this calm space for me to really look and introspect and go deeper and deeper. So they really, everything does work together. And so I would encourage you, Ava, you don’t have to see it as, oh my gosh. I need to spend like an hour in all these four cornerstones. How am I supposed to manage all this and stead? We can see that, oh, stack your routines, make, you know, on a piece of paper in your journal, just write one aspect of each cornerstone that you would like to nourish or one goal.
Kimberly: 28:39 You know, I wanna meditate every day in the spiritual one. I want to eat. I wanna make the GGS day. I’m gonna take my probiotics every day. I’m gonna spend, you know, five minutes on my mental health, just finding stillness and journaling. So then you stack them together and then it becomes boom, a whole lifestyle. And there you go. <laugh> so give it a, try Eva, go into it. See how the cornerstones apply to your life and keep in touch with me. I cannot wait to hear how you do sending you so much love and happy holidays. My love, um, look forward to connecting more in the new year.
Question #4 around the topic of: How to Create a Holistic Lifestyle to Achieve Your Goals: So last year I went into 2021 with the goal of creating my own business but that was a complete fail. I’m now heading into this new year and feeling overwhelmed already. What do you suggest so that I actually see results this time around?
Kimberly: 29:34 All right, now we have one more question who comes from Eleanor, who lives in Florida? Hello, my Florida beauty sending you much love to a state that I love very much. You write last year I went into 2021 with the goal of creating my own business, but that was a complete fail. I’m now heading into this new year and feeling overwhelmed already. What do you suggest so that I actually see results this time around, Ooh, Eleanor, wonderful question. Um, a couple things I wanna say here, the past is the past. You know, we talked about this last week a bit, but we don’t want to bring any heaviness into the new year that doesn’t need to be there. And one heaviness that does not need to be there is the beating yourself up the heaviness of the guilt, the shame, oh, I should have done this. I didn’t do this. It just weighs us down. So we look at it in a pragmatic way, you know, what can I learn from the past year? Where did I abandon myself? Where did I abandon dream? Was it in inactivity? A lack of focus. Was it from self-doubt and just not taking any steps forward?
Kimberly: 30:31 Was it from fear? Was it disorganization? Whatever it was. You wanna really just shine that light and create awareness about what happened and learn from it and then let it go. Oh, that way you have clarity as you step into the year and separate to your business. Um, what is important is really supporting yourself as a budding entrepreneur. There is no set path forward. So you really want to bring the fullness of unique spin on things, your unique energy into, into this project, into this year, into your new business. So creating this lifestyle and everything I just spoke about with Ava and the previous questions is so important for you, Eleanor, because, um, let’s say you’re starting trying to start a business and then suddenly you’re up all night and then you’re eating like crap and all this stuff. And you just let it all go out the window.
Kimberly: 31:28 Your energy goes down and down and down, and then you aren’t in touch with the true self. You aren’t in touch with your highest, best ideas and creative solutions. So that will affect your business. Everything affects everything else. So as you step into the new year, same thing for you, look at your four cornerstones. What goal do you have for each of them then stack your morning, maybe middle of the day and evening routine to include those and really highlight them. And I’m a big believer in writing down your goals and intentions. So in your notebook at the front throughout, you keep check in, keep, um, bringing things more and more into your awareness, but starting with a really clear focus. Now I am particularly excited for you. My love to read the new book, you are more than you think you are because the longest chapter in the book, which is in section three.
Kimberly: 32:23 So the book is structured in, in, uh, part one getting past the biggest blocks into reaching our fullest potential. So chapter one or part one includes getting past fear, claiming our wholeness, um, finding really connecting to the love inside of us. Part two is embodying more of our tree, self qualities. So honing our intuition, increasing our intuition and inner peace. And then part three, once we have parts one and two down is really about boom, how do we use this create? So the long, this is about abundance magnetism. It’s beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. And the longest chapter in the book is chapter 19. You are a creator. So this chapter will speak to you. Exactly Eleanor. It is specific exercises or how you start to identify your strengths, your, your gifts, what is unique to you, even though it may feel completely unrelated, but we start to extract.
Kimberly: 33:19 We start to notice and observe certain parts of your life in certain times of the day. And then we work with that. And then we start to extract from it, the ways that it starts to create out into form. So in an abstract sense in sin, little abstract, what I’m saying is we work with your energy and we channel it. How does this support my business? Where can I take this as my greatest strength and create something that no one else has done. This is actually part of my best business idea. This is coming from inside of me. This just wants to be birthed into the world. This is how I’m gonna do it. And it’s so empowering when we harness this. Because again, as I mentioned earlier, we all have this unique essence. So instead of trying to figure out what people want and work backwards, we work with our essence.
Kimberly: 34:11 And then we bring that into the world. We’re working inside out instead of outside in. And that is how we see the best results, Eleanor. That is where we bring our fullest energy. Our fullest potential out instead of trying to shapeshift ourselves into expectations from other people, or, you know, what’s going on out here that isn’t authentically us and uniquely us. And this is how we stand out. This is how we create the best, best website, business, project, product, whatever it is. So I can’t wait. And besides these tips, which you can start to execute right here right now, Eleanor cannot wait for you to start reading the new book in just a few weeks, cuz this one will really sing to you. It will sing to your heart, my love and I cannot wait. Thank you for part of our community. Thank you for your question. Please keep in touch with me to let me know how you do this year into, um, this beautiful unfolding of your own business.
Thought of the Week
Kimberly: 35:19 And before we sign off here, I’m going to leave us with a quote of the week. And this is from the creative your chapter. I actually pulled this from the beginning of the show and I am so excited, especially about this chapter. So here we go, quote comes right from here, Tap into your will and you will create magic. You are a creator by nature. So bring forth the creations into the world that no one else can bring forth, but you.Tap into your will and you will create magic. You are a creator by nature. So bring forth the creations into the world that no one else can bring forth, but you. I’ll be here to support you with a lot more information on that with a new book. But in the meantime, in the context of our, uh, show today, as we head into new year, focus on your lifestyle, focus on creating something that’s so supportive. As you move through your day and you flow through from food, how you’re taking care of your body, your emotions, connecting to the spirit inside of you to your true self.
Kimberly: 36:27 And you will see that this focus on environment and lifestyle will support you in spades, in infinite, exponential ways as you create dreams this year. So focus on that. And again, I got a lot more coming for you with the new book. You are more than you think you are. I cannot wait for you to read it. I cannot wait for you to have an incredible year ahead.
