Are you ready to live? Really live that feeling good life you desire to live? Thank you for joining me today on the Feeling Good Podcast. It’s another feeling good day and great to be alive. It’s also time for spring cleaning and I’m not talking about your house. Are you someone who does routine spring cleaning of your house every year? Think about how you feel once that spring cleaning is done. That sense of freshness and newness is something I look forward to every year. I believe it’s just as important, maybe even more important, to do a spring cleansing and detoxing of your body every year during spring, which is essential for good health.
