#ayyechale Just taking a break from posting as I regroup, collect my thoughts, do my research and plan how to build a stronger movement and content ✌🏾I'll still be creeping on all of you, though 🤣#mentalhealthawareness #blackmentalhealth #fibromyalgia #advocate #wellness #socialmovement

#ayyechale #goodmorning ! When I have a #fibro flare up, #yoga + #meditation restore peace & calm. At 16 I suffered a deep kidney infection, ulcer & chronic dyspepsia. I faced the challenge of losing weight faster than I could gain it & almost failed my last two years of high school due to frequent absences. I prevailed & graduated one early. •
The next 16 years were a chronic gastric struggle. At age 31, I contracted a mysterious viral infection, causing bouts of #vertigo, debilitating #migraines, #chronicfatigue + mild hearing loss in one ear. #fibromyalgia depression + struggles with #bodypositivity kicked in. •
Set backs yes, but I will not stop moving forward. I #SweatForThis because I am a warrior. I #SweatForThis because my journey is a story you should #follow & be #inspired by. I #SweatForThis because life is a beautiful struggle worth sweating for✌🏾

5 Ways To #GetYourLife With Oil Pulling


#ayyechale #oilpulling is an ancient practice, often associated with #Ayurveda (#traditional #medicine system from India) that involves swishing oil in your mouth to remove bacteria and promote oral #hygiene.
Some types of #oil (#coconut, sunflower, sesame) also contain properties that can naturally reduce #inflammation and bacteria to promote oral #health

To get started: set aside 20 minutes each day. Use the extra time to multitask around home, all while improving your oral hygiene!

#ayyechale Happy #friyay! @artipatel1 has written a very insightful article highlighting #blackmentalhealth and #minoritymentalhealth for #blackcanadians. Contributions and detailed experiences are shared by @stacyannbuchanan @natashabrowne (psychologist) and @kimkatrinmilan.

From #blackhistorymonth and beyond, let's work together on changing the narrative, embracing the hurdle-not a flaw and #ChangeTheStigma within the black community because we've all experienced #mentalillness to whatever degree at some point in time in our lives. What are your thoughts on the matter- including how mental illness or #depression is represented in the #African #Caribbean or #Black communities?

More to soon come on my blog. For now, catch some highlights above.

#ayyechale I am aware the slogan reads backwards, but that was intentional. How do you recognize good vibes? The symbolism behind my photo represents the fact that good vibes can be felt & seen in several ways; it's all relative. Look past what may you may think is flawed & focus on the hidden gem or message in front of you. A gift from me to you ✌🏾❤️ How do you spread #goodvibes?

#ayyechale Maayke . Full disclosure I woke up yesterday with strong feelings of pressure, #anxiety and that I'd had enough.
These feelings are weekly occurrences for me. I dream of a world full of resources where we #kings and #queens can express ourselves freely- emotionally and mentally. Free of stigmas, taboos and fear of rejection or disownment by culture and society. As I work hard on being free within my own vulnerability ( via my journey) it is with great hope that over time the impact and effect on our community will be one that is riveting and ground breaking. Awareness. Tolerance. #Advocacy. #mentalillness for one, like the soul in this video, is one too many... And for the record near or far, you will always find an open heart and ear in me.

MOOD: 🎶Thank You For Being A Friend (#goldengirls #andrewgold)
#lessonlearned: Love,patience and understanding.

Everyday I start my morning with a warm mug of freshly squeezed lemon water 🍋. Great for the skin and overall system! Did you know that even though lemons are acidic by nature, this simple concoction actually alkalizes our system, thus boosting immunity? It's also one of the best ways to break-our-fast / flush our system of toxins following a good night's sleep.
Drink this about an 30 mins or so before your first meal of the day. Allow that shizz to digest (yes! #water actually has a transit time aka digestion period of 15-30 mins, depending on how empty our stomach is, to how hydrated our body is).
Don't forget to be 'bout that pure and filtered h2O life! Lemon water is a detoxifying drink after all- hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! All day errryday.

Sippin' Pretty Tip: •When we sip, liquids sit longer in our system. When we gulp, that shizz can bring falls like Niagara!
•Be sure to brush your teeth following your last sip (so that the acid doesn't wear down your enamel.
You'd be surprised at how much energy this drink provides!
What are some of your fave morning rituals?? Comment below!

#ayyechale We never know where our days or our journey for that matter will take us. Literally at 1:11pm I was rolling out of the #library, when these baddies crossed my line of sight. It's no coincidence between the time of day and the fact that all four books were displayed on the shelf together. It's no coincide that this morning I woke up and said l to myself "Girl, don't forget about you... Maybe you should write a book too!"
That's a lot of #blackgirlmagic right thurr!

#ayyechale My posting has been slow this week... Just taking some timeout to slay the chilling vibes ✌🏾✨
We all need to unplug sometimes. Wouldn't you agree?

#LessonLearned: I always used to need to busy, on the-go or occupied with something. That life has changed, yo! I'm very content and confident within my alone time. I'm an #aquarius and an empath, so I must honour what that means for myself, my time, my body, my space and energy. The recharge is so necessary.
Wishes to you all for a dope ass, safe Thursday night !

MOOD: #ayyechale Just feeling poeticy and self-reflecty. I am determined more than ever to maintain my focus as I continue to envision what this journey is manifesting into: •I am grateful for the power of visualization because I see myself on stage as a leader,speaker, motivator, a game changer! An advocate, a sister and a survivor.
•I am grateful for the power of visualization because I am booked and blessed! Confirmed flight-hotel details+ appearance inquiries. All arranged by them- not
me #requests #bookedtocapacity •I am grateful for the power of visualization because my entrance onto every stage IS a grand one! #yasss 💃🏾👸🏾💁🏾 •I am grateful for the power of visualization because I'm travelling +living tropically (my 🤴🏿too!); working with local organizations on the development of sound health +social service infrastructures #mamaafrica ✊🏾 •I am grateful for the power of visualization just because I am. I am. #iam ⭐️✨

#ayyechale I'm chopping it up in the kitchen on a #friday with these baddies. I've been #okra since childhood and who would've known that okra is quickly emerging as a new #superfood?! ______

Here are seven okra nutrition benefits:
* Source of Calcium. Okra provides ample calcium and magnesium, helping prevent both calcium deficiency and magnesium deficiency.
* Heart health booster
* Eyesight improver
* Good source of protein
* Helps lower cholesterol
* Helps stabilize blood sugar
* Good for digestion (probiotics)

Have you tried it- do you like it, love it or meh it? 🤷🏾‍♀️🤔

Practice, practice, practice 'till that shit overflows ✌🏾
It's an art, an act and PROCESS that anyone can master, but you gotta be willing to: •be patient with the world around and inside you •put in some work, work, work, work, work, work.

#ayyechale Grateful to have risen with a little less pain and stiffness today. We are only as weak as we think we are and as strong as we push ourselves to be. Starting my day with #peace and #gratitude goes a long way. My (health) journey has been the biggest life lesson of all time. I hope as you continue to follow
me, you get #inspired and #motivated too. ❤️x✨

#ayyechale So I've decided to get back into a #cleaneating routine. Starting with tonight's meal. Loaded with organic veggies cleansed via a plant based veggie and fruit wash, #organic + non-GMO tofu and gluten free pasta (which I eat from time to time to aid in reducing inflammation).
Considering that I used to be a #vegan (and greatly enjoyed it!), studied culinary arts and #nutrition and am an #Ayurveda enthusiast, sticking to this shizz should be a breeze for a Bish👊🏾#noexcuses

What's on your plate for tonight?

#LessonLearned: I'm hopeful and optimistic about healing myself. I'm grateful for this journey as it's teaching me a lot (I'm purging a lot from my soul, too).

#ayyechale The natural way is the best way to jumpstart any day, errryday! #breakfast for a championess
What are you eating today?

MOOD:Get On Up 🎶
#LessonLearned: Balance, moderation and clean eating. I'm fuelling me with an abundance of living foods- a key factor in #lifestylemanagement for #fibromyalgia and #depression (à la gut-brain connection). It's not about perfection as I'm not trying to be a closet-food-junkie ( I do love me some greasy shit tho). Team anti-inflammatory and anti-depressey all day, baby!

He left me. No, he didn't run away because he didn't like me lol. He left me and I'm happy. I'm happy because right now he's exactly where he's supposed to be. A new work opportunity. He's living it up tropically. Pursuing his dreams. And I'm #happy

He's breaking barriers and stigmas magnificently. #blackmancan yaaasss! Get it, baby!
And I'm happy. I'm proud. He was and still is King to me.
#thankyou for including me before you took off on your journey. It wasn't easy. I admit, frustrations slayed all through me. 3 months of focusing on me, my shit. My journey.
Then suddenly! "You're still a Queen to me."
Melt me baby, melt me.

It's funny, most women don't expect to be single on their journey in their mid 30's. But me? I'm ok with it. See, I've spent a lot of time alone, to be with only myself-intentionally. I've been working on me. The only way for me to be all that I can be in this lifetime and into eternity (for myself first and then my new he) is if I connect with the process of renewing the deepest love for and of me.
I'm a constant #workinprogress and this work is what has enabled him to still call me "Queen". He's unaware of this specific journey, but energetically I know he feels me. My first time ever connecting with someone deep enough to want to be their #Queen. For that, I'm grateful x infinity.
MOOD: For You (his dedication)🎶 #LESSONLEARNED: The story, journey and process continues.. You can follow me/ read more on the blog *post to follow*

But Chales, do you get me? Are you feeling me? #loveandlight is all about #healing + rediscovering me. What type of journey or self-discovery (if any) have you been on? #Love, life, #health, or #career, what sort of progress have you noticed within yourself? Who or what inspired you?
