SELF LOVE: Basil & Aloe Vera Face Mask 🧖‍♀️

This Mask Is Great For:
🔸️Killing germs
🔸️Preventing breakouts
🔸️ Moisturizing
🔸️ Toning tired skin
:::
Ingredients:
🔸️Aloe vera gel
🔸️Basil 🍃
🔸️Indian lilac (optional)
:::
Recipe:
➡️For this recipe, you need to grind a handful of basil and a handful of lilac before mixing. If you can buy the leaves pre-ground, that would be great. The easiest way to do it yourself is to use a mortar and pestle. If you don’t have those tools, place the leaves on the palm of your hand, and press and rub with your thumb using twisting motions. This helps to release the essential oils inside the leaves.
➡️Place the ground leaves in a mixing bowl and a 1 tablespoon of water.
➡️Stir until the water is gone.
➡️Pour in 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel.
➡️Mix until the gel covers all the leaf matter.
:::
How To Apply:
➡️Start by washing your face and neck with warm water and an oil-free cleanser to remove makeup and open pores.
➡️Spread the aloe vera gel, leaves and all, onto the skin of your face, neck, and décolleté.
➡️Let the mask dry for fifteen minutes. Keep an eye on your surroundings as the leaves may have a tendency to fall your face as the aloe dries.
➡️Rinse your face, first with lukewarm water, and then with cool water to tighten pores.
➡️Dry your skin with a soft towel 😀

Be positive! · Self-evolving

Try seeing the world from other perspective!

You know how it said that you need to change in order to grow? 🤔 You need to change your mindset, your thoughts and sometimes your perspective too! 😉
:::
It is highly possible that when you think about something while being in a different mood you’ll feel different about it 😉. That’s why we say „sleep on it” when we want somebody to make a decision on something. Because it works! You might feel different about some subject the next day 🤗
:::
Same way you might feel different about something in several years 😉. As time passes you become wiser, you gain experience, your character changes so your decisions might change too 😉. Just think about some decisions you’ve made in last couple years. Would you do everything same way now? 🤔 Probably not. That’s why it is always important to think about future and about future you when making some important decision 😀
:::
On another point – try seeing things from other perspective when listening to others’ decisions too! ⚠️ People keep judging somebody’s choices but what might not be good for you might be good for someone else! 😉 When judging others we need to remember that we are all different! ⚠️
:::
I used to get mad when my husband didn’t plan or organize everything precisely 🙄, I used to get angry with my friend that he never remembers anything 😳 etc. It took some  time but finally I learned not to compare others to myself or other way round 😉. If I like being organized and/or have good memory it doesn’t mean that others are the same!
:::
Remember, in order to fully understand something or to make a good decision you need to see something from different perspectives, trying to get a wide spectrum on the subject so as to be objective and to make a wise decision 🤗

Smiley Future – Step 58

Let’s continue learning about gratitude 🙏. Today I want you to try out this excercise that is great for practicing self-love and crucial for people who work on their body or try to lose weight 😊.
:::
Question for today: what are your grateful for in your body? 🤔
Sit down comfortably and bring your whole attention to gratitude towards your body.
:::
If nothing comes to your mind here’s an example: feel grateful for your feet 👣 that carry you every day, for your legs thanks to which you can walk, run and dance 💃, for your stomach that digests, cleanses and nourishes 🤗, for your back that carry you tall and proud 😎 or let you safely curl up and hide when you need it, for your arms and hands 🤲 thanks to which you can work, hold, hug, pet. Feel grateful for your voice 💬 thanks to which you can express your thoughts and feelings, sing, shout or laugh, for your eyes 👀 that let you see, for your ears 👂 that let your hear, for nose 👃 and tongue 👅 that can taste, that ease your appetite and ability to appreciate smells and flavours.
:::
If you want, you can try out this excercise in a form of meditation or relaxation 🧘🏼‍♀️ – lay down in a comfortable position, close your eyes, let your body loose and think what are you grateful for in your body, thank it, thank yourself 🤗

Smiley Future – Step 57

Let’s continue our practicing gratitude and try out another excercise 🙏. Task for today is feeling (and showing) gratitude towards others 🤩. How can you do it?
➡️ 1. Notice, appreciate and thank others (close ones, coworkers etc) for every little (and easy to miss) gestures coming from them 🙏. Bring your attention to everything that you get from them: attention, support, help 🤝. Short conversation 💬, making a tea when you feel sick 😪, helping in solving a problem, a text showing  that somebody thinks of you in a difficult moment….
:::
When you concentrate on noticing and appreciating those details, you’ll see that you have plenty more reasons to feel grateful that you’ve thought before 🤩
:::
➡️ 2. Notice, appreciate and thank strangers who you meet along your way e.g. as a customer. It can be a mindful waiter 😊, friendly saleswoman 🤗, a clerk with a smile on his face 😁, bus driver that waits for you to get in before he drives away 🚃… Notice those specific things that others do for you and feel grateful 😍
:::
Do you notice those little deeds from others in your everyday life? 🤔 I sure do and I’m always grateful for every little help or support I get from others but on the other hand I feel sad/disappointed when others do not notice/appreciate what I do for them and take it for granted 💔
.
Do you feel the same way?

SELF LOVE: Calming crafts

The mental health benefits of crafting have been well documented by plenty of top publications 🤩! Working with your hands and making time to be creative can boost your mood 🙃, keep your brain sharp 🧠 and even help alleviate the symptoms of health woes like depression, arthritis, sleeplessness and stress 🤯.
:::
Human beings have been using art 🎨 and creative endeavors to cope and express themselves for literally thousands of years.
:::
So, it’s no surprise that DIY and crafting can help with anxiety, too 🤗. Crafting as a form of self-care is a long-standing tradition. 
:::
I have always found creating/crafting/making to be a form of therapy 😍🙏. When you’re making something, your mind has space to wander and work things out. It also gives you a chance to change the channel in your brain and focus on something else rather than what’s stressing you out 🤗
:::
And in many cases, the actual physical activities involved in craft projects can be relaxing in themselves. Whether it’s the act of making smooth brushstrokes, the calm repetitive nature of needlecrafts and knitting or crochet, or the soothing colors and sounds of coloring, just the act of making can be super relaxing 😍.

Smiley Future – Step 56

I hope that last week’s step nr 55 about gratitude got you interested and ready to practice it! 🤗 You’re  ready? Let’s get to today’s task straight away! 🤩
:::
For the next couple of days (until our next step in a week) every night when you’re laying in bed already think of 3 things that you are grateful for in that exact moment 🙏. Notice how you feel before that excercise and how you feel afterwards. Does something change? 🤔 Does it get easier with time to find reasons to be grateful? 😊
:::
So as not to forget about this excercise stick a note next to your bed with a reminder 📌.
How do you like that excercise? Maybe you’ll practice it every night from now on? 🤗
Write down your reflections 📝
:::
Today I am grateful for my friends, for the support I get from my husband and for our financial situation 😊🙏
:::
Next week: Gratitude towards other people
