    7 Day Eating Plans for: Detoxing, More Energy, Emotional Well-being, Reducing Cancer Risk Etc. I have a 7 day seasonal cleanse (for Spring and every other season) and 7 steps to break free of sugar addiction, both can be done as blog, series or recorded classes.

    1. The Wellness Universe Post author

      Hello @rachelkieffer thank you! Please see the guidelines above, select up to 2 titles to have them assigned and we welcome blog series, and the one you mention is GREAT but you must be an upgraded member to have a series posted. Please let me know which titles you would like to claim.
      🙂
      Anna

  2. Rachel Kieffer

    Hi Anna,
    Thank you for clarifying that.
    I will look into upgrading my membership so I can post a series. In the meantime I will choose #10 tips to curb cravings and #2 delicious and nutritious ways to use ginger.

  3. Halina Goldstein

    Hi Anna!
    #23 Access Joy Under Pressure: 10 Strategies – that’s right up my alley. 🙂
    Maybe it will be 6 strategies, or 12, depending on what I feel serves the reader. I assume the number doesn’t make a big difference for you. If it does, let me know and I’ll make it 10.

    1. The Wellness Universe Post author

      Hi @kathryndoll thank you it has been assigned to you. Please see guidelines above, and please be sure your profile ‘About Me’ section is filled out. Please submit within 2 weeks to get scheduled. Looking forward to your article!

  4. Rachel Kieffer

    Hi Anna, I made a mistake in my request above, I asked for 10 tips to curb cravings but put the wrong # next to it, It’s # 55, not #10. Can you please correct? Thank you and looking forward to send you the articles soon.

  5. Janette Stuart

    #94 Affirmations for the Month
    Would these be affirmations for March 2018? I’ve published affirmations for Dec., Jan., and Feb. so I am happy and excited to post for March as well unless you’d like a different voice and I can write about joy or angels or trust. Lots of lovely choices. Much love, j

  6. Barbara Abraham

    Hard to choose with all those topics i resonate with 🙂 I’d love to do nr 12: Benefits of joining a class and 66: 5 Tips to get the job you want.
