Confession pt.2

Continuing my last post…
Apart from gardening pastry cooking is also my new hobby. I love it how from couple seperate ingredients you can create something amazing, something delicious πŸ˜‹
While being focused & creative in the kitchen I forget about problems, about others things to do…I am present just here & now.
I’ve done macaroons couple times now and I’m getting better and better at it and my next challenge will be red velvet cake pops – have you ever made it? Or macaroons? πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‹
I love creating stuff whether it is some DIY home decor or some jewelry or in the kitchen..
I feel that being creative truly calms my mind and makes me happy 😊
And there will be some special project about me being creative soon so stay tuned! πŸ˜€


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! πŸ€—
30 ways of practicing self-love/self-care:
πŸ”ΈοΈ 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 πŸ˜‰
πŸ”ΈοΈ 8. Practice gratitude πŸ™ – 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!
πŸ”ΈοΈ 9. Be creative! 🀩 Put your emotions on paper and write a story or take some paints and try painting! πŸŽ¨ 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! πŸ€— 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 πŸ˜€ – 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?
πŸ”ΈοΈ 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!
πŸ”ΈοΈ 11. End all toxic relationships πŸ˜‰. 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 🚫
πŸ”ΈοΈ 12. Celebrate your wins no matter how big or small πŸ˜€. 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!


6 simple ways how to train your brain

➑️ 1.Β Read everyday πŸ“– – even 15-20min of reading a day can do the trick! You can always learn something newΒ from any book, either some interesting fact about some culture, some historical fact or maybe some new word? πŸ˜‰
➑️ 2.Β Play games πŸ€„ – Brain fitness programs and games are a wonderful way to tease and challenge your brain. Sudoku, crosswords and electronic games can all improve your brain’s speed and memory. I highly recommend Lumosity app! πŸ€—
➑️ 3. Excercise on a weekly basis πŸ’ͺ – healthy body = healthy mind! πŸ˜‰ When working outΒ Β you make your heart work faster which stimulates better blood circulation and brings more oxygen to your body and brain 🧠. It boosts your memory, improves your concentration, enhances your creativity etc! πŸ€—
➑️ 4. Get out of the comfort zone πŸ’₯ – when leaving your comfort zone you need to start thinking, you end up in a new situation, need to be creative, learn new skills etc. Great way to make your brain work! 😊
➑️ 5.Β Take time to meditate πŸ§˜πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ – daily meditation is perhaps the single greatest thing you can do for your mind/body health 😊. Meditation not only relaxes you, it gives your brain a workout. By creating a different mental state, you engage your brain in new and interesting ways while increasing your brain fitness 🀩
➑️ 6.Β Keep learning new skills πŸ“ˆ – learning a new skill works multiple areas of the brain. Your memory comes into play, you learn new movements and you associate things differently 😊. Reading Shakespeare, learning to cook and building an airplane out of toothpicks all will challenge your brain and give you something to think about 😁
