SELF LOVE: 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care pt.3

SELF-LOVE 🙏💚
Time for 3rd part of our 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care with 6 more self-care tips for you!
:::
🔸️13. Start each day by telling yourself something really positive 🤗. How well you managed to do something, how lovely you look today. Anything that you would say to your friend to make her/him smile – tell that to yourself! 😁
🔸️14. Eat healthy! 🥦 Fill your body with food and drink that nourishes it and makes it thrive.
🔸️15. Don’t believe everything you think 🚫. There is an inner critic inside of us trying to keep us small and safe, remember about that!
🔸️16. Surround yourself with positive people who love and encourage you 💞. Support each other, help each, be good to each other!
🔸️17. Stop the comparisons. There is no one on this planet like you we are all unique in our own way and that’s what makes this world beautiful! 😍
🔸️18. Step outside of your comfort zone and try something new 🤩. It’s incredible the feeling we get when we realize we have achieved something we didn’t know or think we could do before.

SELF LOVE: 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care pt.2

Time for 2nd part of our 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care! Last week we did first 6, now time for 6 more! 🤗
:::
30 ways of practicing self-love/self-care:
🔸️ 7. Have some propper me-time. If you don’t live by yourself be open about it and simply ask your partner or roommate to leave you by youreslf because you need some time by yourself. I learned that last year to simply tell my husband that I need e.g. to watch some girly movie by myself, I leave him by himself in living room and go to bedroom to have some me-time 😉
🔸️ 8. Practice gratitude 🙏 – we have so many things to be grateful for! Your health, your close ones,  roof over your head, your surrounding… notice what you really have! 😊 So many people lack it and dream of those things!
🔸️ 9. Be creative! 🤩 Put your emotions on paper and write a story or take some paints and try painting! 🎨 If you’re not a fan of those 2 activities you can try decoupaging, knitting, taking pictures, singing, playing some instruments… there are so many ways to be creative! 🤗 This is what got me through lockdown! Coloring is what makes me relaxed, gets my thoughts away and lets me calm down so I got this BrushMe set 😀 – you get a painting with a set of paints with numbers and all you need to do is to paint right color in the right spot and you can create an amazing picture like I did here! Have you tried one of those?

🔸️ 10. Spend as much time in nature as possible! 😍 Especially now, in the spring/summer! 🌞 Fresh air and nice views make us calmer and more energetic!
🔸️ 11. End all toxic relationships 😉. Anyone who makes you feel anything less than amazing doesn’t deserve to be a part of your life. If you get/havve a hater in social media – block him/her immediately. We don’t need that 🚫
🔸️ 12. Celebrate your wins no matter how big or small 😀. Pat yourself on the back and be proud of what you have achieved!

Another 6 ways of of practicing self-love and self-care coming next week!

Smiley Future – Step 67

Time for summing up 🤩. It is a very important moment, in which you should pay full attention. Why? 🤔 Because every path leading to a long-term goal is about learning something new 🤗. You find out plenty new things about yourself, you have a change to draw conclusions from your strong and weak points, successes, mistakes and failures.
:::
Let’s start summing up with analyzing success and strong points. Answer those questions:
➡️ What have you acomplished during this challenge?
➡️ What new habits, tools or knowledge have you started using in practice?
➡️ What have you managed to do?
➡️ How close did you get to reaching goal? Where were you in the begging of this challenge and where are you now?
➡️ What advantages and strong points do you notice now, from time perspective? Maybe you’ve managed to discover or appreciate more some of your resources (internal or external) that you haven’t seen before?
:::
Second part of summing up is about mistakes, failures and mishaps that have come along the way and thank to which you can learn new things about yourself 😉. Remember to avoid excessive self-criticism and blaming yourself. You’re doing this summing up in order to uses this experience and learn from it 👍. Be good to yourself and understanding. Remember: the only person who doesn’t make mistakes is a person who doesn’t do anything at all! 😉
:::
Answer those questions:
➡️ What was hard, what have you not managed to achieve? Why did you think it happened?
➡️ What knowledge have you gained because of it?
➡️ What discoveries about yourself will be useful in the future, while reaching other goals?
➡️ What  did your difficulties come from? What helped or what could help next time?
:::
In the end thank yourself for the perseverance and courage 🙏. Thanks to it you try, you make mistakes and learn new things about yourself in order to take another step forward ➡️

Self-Love

SELF LOVE: 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care

Starting today for next 5 self-love posts that I share on Thursdays we’re gonna go through 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care 😊. Start loving yourself! That’s first step to being happy!
:::
1-6 ways of practicing self-love/self-care:
🔸️ 1. Write a love letter to yourself. Write down everything you like/love about yourself 😍
🔸️ 2. Learn when to stop and relax. We all live in crazy speed and that’s not healthy. Try to plan at least 1 day a week for regeneration when you have the time to think, to listen to music, to meditate or even to just lay down and do nothing 🤗.
🔸️ 3. Find time for your close ones. You can’t work all the time 😉. Take that 1 evening off and go out, meet with your friends, your family
🔸️ 4. Be active! Do you remember my post last week about happy hormones (if not, you should! It’s under a pink photo with a bubble gum 😉)? We’ve learned that working out and being physically active boosts production of endorphins 🤗
🔸️ 5. Learn to forgive yourself. IF you’ve made some mistake, even a big one, it’s already in the past, what is done is done. Try to draw conclusions and use it as experience of what not to do in the future 😘. But most importantly – don’t be angry with yourself!
🔸️6. Have good sleep 😴! It is highly important to function well! What can you do to sleep well? Don’t dring too much coffee or black tea, try not to stress that much and don’t work too much 😅

Be positive!

Confession

I’ve got a confession for you 😶.
Last couple of months I’ve been using less and less of Instagram 😏. I mean I have been posting, have been sharing some stuff on my stories but the truth is I haven’t been scrolling that much through feed and I haven’t been reading other people’s post and checking out their photos 😬.
:::
Why? It made me feed bad 😪.
I used to get motivation from other accounts 🤩. I used to love to scroll through Instagram to see others succeed and to get new energy from them 🤗. I used to tell you to do the same. To look at other people succeeding as a motivation for you.
:::
But lately as I’ve been struggling with lack of energy and motivation after battling with Covid and very stressful months 😥, I didn’t want to see others succeed when I couldn’t 💔, I didn’t want to see beautiful girls posing on beautiful pictures while I not only couldn’t take any nice pictures but also put on weight last couple of months 🙈, I couldn’t see other accounts grow when I’ve been losing followers 😬. I just shut it all down and haven’t been scrolling Instagram…until last weekend.
:::
Now what you can learn from this? 🤔 First of all, if something or someone makes you feel bad put it aside, push them away and detach from negative emotions 🚫. Either temporarily like I did or permanently if that’s what you need.
:::
But secondly, and even more importantly, remember that there always will be people more successful than us 😅, more attractive than ourselves, wiser, more experienced…and that’s ok 😉. We should learn from those people and just focus on ourselves and try to be best version of you 🤗
Always.

Smiley Future – Step 66

Today I highly encourage you to create new reward system, now regarding maintaining the change 🏆
:::
Start rewarding with complimenting yourself on even smallest successes 🤗. I know it may not be easy and you are probably not used to catching on your sucesses but more on your mistakes or failures 🤔. It is worth though to try it out and redirect your attention to progress and accomplishments 🤩.
:::
If you are having problem with that write down all the compliments you like to hear and use them on every occassion of even smallest acomplishments 😎. Every day. If nothing comes to your mind try those examples: „You’re doing great!”, „Good job!”, „Keep going!” 👏
:::
Another step of conscious rewarding yourself is to create reward system, for example once a week or once a month 😊. Let it  be something that will make you very happy (but won’t be a conflict to your main goal) 😀
