EP's 6 Favorite Workout Products
I want you to LOVE your life and everything in it. To become obsessed with a highlighter that helps provide scholarships or a face mask working to end child marriage. Appreciating the good in your life and realizing all that you love will help you love yourself. It will encourage you to find more things you love and more things for which to be grateful.
This list includes some vegan, eco-friendly, and powerful products. My goal is to help you find your new favorite products and brands!
SOJI is a women-owned company focused on crystal energy.
The name SOJI was derived from the ancient spiritual practice called Soji－a Zen word relating to the practice of “Temple Cleansing.” A practice where the goal was not to complete the task but to BE PRESENT during the task.
Soji’s philosophy is focusing on the present process, not the future goal.
Life is not about finishing, but more simply about doing. If we adopt the Soji mindset to own the present journey rather than the elusive destination we may be more mindful and grateful. There is no rush. Slow down, be present, take care of yourself, and trust the journey.
SOJI focuses on holistic health

Last but not least is the music! Obviously, I had to shoutout Empower Palette’s Spotify playlist. Major plug, I know, but I created this playlist just for YOU. I add new songs anytime I come across an empowering gem. 💎🎶
Or create a playlist that motivates you. I often have to switch up the music I listen to or else I feel like I’m in a rut, I’ve plateaued.
