As some of you know, mayor of my hometown Gdansk got stabbed on stage during a charity event on Sunday and died yesterday.
It is very hard for me and plenty other Gdansk citizens.
He was a great mayor for over 20 years here and he will be very missed.
When you’re sad close your eyes and think of a happy place. Try to see the colors there. If it’s a place filled with people try to see their faces, hear what they’re talking about. If your safe place is in nature without any people listen intently to the sounds around you. Do you hear the sea? Do you hear the wind?
What do you smell?
Try to go into this happy place for 5-10 minutes whenever you are sad or stresses. Always keep your eyes closed and take deep breaths.
This what you can see on the picture is my safe place, my happy place. My home. Top 3 windows (you can see tiny bit of them, the rest got cut off) is where I grew up and where my parents live ❤🙏
This is where I go to in my mind when I’m stressed.
What is your happy place?
Happy New Year!!!
🎊🎉🎊🎉 What are your plans for this year? Do you have a goal?
Remember: “A goal without a plan is just a wish”
You’ll need a good plan!
2018 was important for me due to big steps in my life (marriage and moving in to our 1st home of our own) but 2019 will be for my dreams and self-growth! I want to make this blog big (please help me 😊) + i’ll tell you soon about this goal of mine that i’ve been working on for 7 years – it will be important this year!
Time for 2018 sum up.
Was it a good year for you?
Try to write down 10 good things (only good ones!) that happened to you this year.
What was it?
It was a big year for me for sure. First of all i got married in May 😊 and my husband and I got our 1st own apartment and moved in in June ❤🏡
Also, one of my dreams came true, i got to a goal that i’ve been working on for 7 years! I’ll tell you what it was soon 😊
Happy birthday to me! 😊🎉🎂🎈
I am so grateful for my husband, my family, my friends, my health, my projects, my trips, my amazing life! 😊
I am now 27 yet i feel 22 😅
My name is Pola and i want to teach you how to be happy. „Teach me? It’s not something you can teach, being happy depends on your life, your luck, health etc” you may think but you can’t be more wrong. Happiness is a STATE OF MIND! It is psychologically proven that whether you are happy or not depends only on yourself and the way you think! *Obviously i’m not a psychologist, please remember that this blog is based on my experience, knowledge from books and articles but i’m not a doctor! If you do have serious mental health issues such as depression please see a psychologist.
Life is not easy and probably each one of you know it already. I had mental health issues myself and was not happy but i learned to see world differently, life taught me to learn from failures and i started being happy. And this is what we’re gonna do here.
I have read quite a lot of books on psychology and how brain works (i would say psychology is my hobby but again, i’m not a doctor! J) and i want to share with you some of the tricks i’ve learned like how to change your mindset, how to work with your fears, how to be more confident, how to stress less, what makes you happy etc.
It’s not going to be just theory of course! I’ll be posting motivational quotes or stories, i’ll be writing about people who inspire me and who can motivate you to reach for happiness, there will be plenty positive movies/books recommendations here and plenty more! I want to show you some interesting places to have a nice day at, some funny ways to spend a day off, even recipes for comfort food! Basically sending positive vibes and trying to teach you how to be/stay happy!
This blog here will be for longer posts but main part will be at my Instagram page so follow me at @smileysociety !
I’ve got big ideas for this blog, i’ve been preparing content for couple months already and i can’t wait to post it all!
