SELF-LOVE: Avocado

Do you know that avocado is superfood๐Ÿ’ช ๐Ÿฅ‘?ย It is one of the most nutrient-dense foods available ๐Ÿค—. Avocado is among the richest in fiber, folate, potassium, vitamin E, good fats such as Omega-9 and magnesium among all fruits ๐Ÿคฉ
:::
But it’s not only very healthy for your diet but it’s also great for your skin! ๐Ÿง–โ€โ™€๏ธ
:::
Avocado moisturizes, smoothes and protects skin from losing water ๐Ÿ’ง. It can delay the aging process and it stimulates collagen synthesis so it works like an anti-aging cream! ๐Ÿคฉ
:::
Now that you know its superpowers it’s time to use it in a natural face mask! ๐Ÿ˜‰
:::
You can make a facemask that is great for discoloration of your skin out of avocado ๐Ÿฅ‘ and couple drops of lemon juice ๐Ÿ‹. You just need to mix those 2 ingredients, put fresh mixture on your face and you’ll see 1st effects after 15 minutes when you wash it off! ๐Ÿค—
:::
Try another facemask that will moisturize your skin – mix avocado ๐Ÿฅ‘ with 1 tbsp of honey ๐Ÿฏ. Mix it well. Put the mixture on your skin, neck and hair! Wash off after 15 min โ˜บ

Have you ever tried such a facemask with a fresh avocado? ๐Ÿฅ‘

P.s. Snow fight! โ„
Did I get you? ๐Ÿ˜‰

What goes around comes around

You know the saying โ€˜What goes around comes aroundโ€™? ๐Ÿค” I totally believe in it! ๐Ÿค— And itโ€™s not only about Karma and receiving some good energy after you give it ๐Ÿ’ซ, this rule works in every aspect of our lives ๐Ÿ˜‰
:::
In order to get good energy and get help from others you need to send good energy and help others as well ๐Ÿ˜Š! I doubt that anybody would help a grumpy person that never helps anyone ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
:::
But also in order to grow and to be better you need to give something too – work and time ๐Ÿ˜Ž. The more work and time youโ€™ll put in something (in your passion, project, dream) the quicker and better it will get back to you โ˜บ
:::
Thereโ€™s no shortcuts in it. You canโ€™t expect to grow and to reach your dreams/goals if youโ€™re not doing anything ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ. You need to work to get results ๐Ÿ’ช
:::
Even if something does not work out you still get a lesson, an experience โ€“ thatโ€™s also your results! ๐Ÿ˜Š
ย 
Stop waiting for the world to change and go change the world! ๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸŒ
Nothing will happen itself ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ. You need to โ€˜helpโ€™ it make it happen! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Smiley Future

Smiley Future โ€“ Step 47

Next couple of steps will be about a very important subject โ€“ a connection between emotions and your will power and perseverance ๐Ÿ’ช
:::
Have you noticed that when youโ€™re angry, mad or feeling any other strong emotion you tend to react totally differently than how youโ€™ve planned? ๐Ÿค” We all know it and it is worth taking a closer look on how emotions influence your willpower. Today weโ€™ll start with sadness ๐Ÿ˜ž
:::
Try answering those questions:
โžก๏ธ What do you do when youโ€™re sad? What are your needs to get through the sadness and soothe it? Do you tend to make yourself feel better by eating ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿซ? Do you sometimes resign from some important to you actions to reach your goal because of sadness? ๐Ÿ˜ฐ
โžก๏ธ When youโ€™re sad do some sabotaging thoughts appear? Create helpful reactions for them ๐Ÿ˜‰
โžก๏ธ What can you do to get through sadness without resigning from your goals and giving up? If you tend to โ€˜eat the emotions awayโ€™ (we all know the term โ€˜comfort foodโ€™ right? ๐Ÿ˜…) try finding a solution for it. For example change unhealthy snacks ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿซ๐ŸŒญ for healthy ones ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿฅœ๐Ÿฅ— or try finding another ways to soothe the sadness other than eating ๐Ÿ‘. Maybe a conversation with someone close to you ๐Ÿ’ฌ, watching a comedy ๐ŸŽฌ or a relaxing bath ๐Ÿ›€? You know yourself best! ๐Ÿค—
:::
If this excercise is difficult to you and youโ€™ll feel tense ๐Ÿ˜ฌ, take couple deep breaths when youโ€™re done with the questions, relax your body and have a rest ๐Ÿ˜˜

How does excercise improve happiness? ๐Ÿ’ชโฌ†๏ธ๐Ÿ˜

Do you regularly workout? ๐Ÿค” Working out is good not only to your body but to your mind too! ๐Ÿง 
Tired of feeling down? ๐Ÿ˜ด
Move! ๐Ÿ˜
Stressed about work? ๐Ÿคฏ
Move! ๐Ÿ˜
:::
โ€žSimply moving your body, has immediate, long-lasting and protective benefits for your brainโ€
– Wendy Suzuki, profesor of Natural Science and Psychology ๐Ÿ˜Ž
:::
Excercise will have both a positive chemical effect on your brain ๐Ÿง  reducing stress and improving mood as well as resulting in lasting positive benefits for the brain and body!
:::
It is scientifically proven that working out improves your mood and decreases feelings of depression, anxiety and stress ๐Ÿค—.
After a good workout session your body starts producing lots of endorphines โ€“ happy hormones ๐Ÿคฉ
:::
You feel proud and satisfied that youโ€™ve worked out and managed to make your muscles work = your mood is better ๐Ÿ˜Š
Your heart is beating fast so brings lots of blood and oxygen to your body and to your brain = your mind and memory works better ๐Ÿค“
:::
Working out regularly makes your body chage, you lose weight, your body gets firm and looks better, your have more endorphines in your body, your mind works better = youโ€™re happier ๐Ÿค—
ย 
This is so simple!
Excercise does really improve happiness! ๐Ÿ˜‰
:::
You should workout 20-40 min 3-4 times a week. I know you donโ€™t feel like it, I know itโ€™sย ย hard to start ๐Ÿ˜‰. Believe me it is so hard for me to get up from a couch or desk andย workout, Iย almost never feel like it and need to force myself to do it but I ALWAYS feel soooo good afterwards โ˜บ
ย 
So, have you worked out today?ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

SELF-LOVE: Work on your dreams no matter what vs rest no matter what ๐Ÿค”

You need to listen to your body and rest when needed ๐Ÿ™
I have been working too much + had too much stress in November and December and I still ‘feel it’ in my body ๐Ÿ˜ซ. Even though i’m not working that much now in January, I have finally lazy weekends and sleep well ๐Ÿ›Œ, I still feel tired and don’t have that energy to jump into spiral of work ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ and have been taking it slowly so far in the 1st half of January and that’s ok ๐Ÿ˜‰. I’m still moving forward, just taking small steps.
:::
Don’t push yourself if you don’t feel like it โš ๏ธ. Don’t say “I’ll do it no matter what!” if you don’t want to do it โš ๏ธ. It may seem contradictory to me pushing you to follow your dreams and to work on yourself but it’s not, you just have to find that balance โš–.
:::
If you’ll be pushing yourself and not feel like it not only your body will give up and you will feel tired all the time but you’ll drop that dream/project quickly as forcing yourself to work on it won’t make you happy ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ.
:::
Create a healthy, individual routine for yourself ๐Ÿ˜Š. Try what works for you and what doesn’t. I work 8h at my full-time ‘normal’ job, then work 4-5h on my projects/dream and always need those 3-4h of rest in the evening when I watch Netflix with my husband ๐Ÿคฉ, workout and/or play PS4 ๐Ÿ•น. And as for weekends I work on my projects for couple hours on Saturdays (but not each Saturday) and always leave Sunday fully off to do nothing and let my body and mind rest ๐Ÿค—.

What works best for you?

Smiley Future

Smiley Future โ€“ Step 46

Todayโ€™s the last step of our intense (and uneasy!) work on sabotaging thoughts ๐Ÿ’ช
:::
โžก๏ธTodayโ€™s task nr 1: Now appreciate yourself for all the hard work and congratulate yourself on your success ๐Ÿ˜Ž. Yes, success because just noticing the sabotaging thoughts is already a big part of the success! ๐Ÿ˜‰
:::
I realize that working on sabotaging thoughts lasts longer than a week or a month. Those last couple steps were only a stimulus and en encouragement to work! ๐Ÿ’ช So remember: everytime you notice a sabotaging thought appreciate yourself with a smile and a good word! ๐Ÿ™ Same thing when you choose a helpful reaction instead of being tempted! ๐Ÿค—
:::
If a sabotaging thought you โ€˜caughtโ€™ wasnโ€™t pleasant, you got tense or upset, after recalling a helpful/supporting thought take couple deep breaths and relax your body ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
:::
โžก๏ธ And now task nr 2: Create a system of awarding yourself (daily, weekly, monthly) for your hard work on sabotaging thoughts ๐Ÿ†. You deserve it! ๐Ÿค—
:::
Write down some nice, supporting words to yourself appreciating your work ๐Ÿ“

Morning routine

Do you have your own morning routine? ๐Ÿค” Healthy morning routine is one of the things that all successful people have in common ๐Ÿ˜‰.
:::
Plenty celebrities or people of business whoโ€™ve reached their goals revealed their secrets that they wake up very early (some of them at 4-5 a.m.) and they always start their day in the same way ๐Ÿ˜Š โ€“ they meditate ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ, they write in their journals โœ’, they eat something healthy ๐Ÿฅ‘, set their affirmations etc. ๐Ÿค—
:::
Why is it so successful? ๐Ÿคจ Because depending on your mindset you start your day with, the day can go either so-so or great ๐Ÿ˜‰!
:::
If you set your mindset right, get into positive thinking and start your day with a smile on your face ๐Ÿ™‚ you really can achieve more! Thanks to this positive energy youโ€™ll be less stressed and less willing to get annoyed quickly ๐Ÿ˜‰, youโ€™ll be more creative and e.g. when you face a problem youโ€™ll look at it in a different way and will find solution for it quicker ๐Ÿ˜Ž, youโ€™ll have more energy to actually work and push your boundaries and so much more! ๐Ÿ˜€
