Smiley Future – Step 28

How do you relax? 😉
Today’s last part of „Be good to yourself” series.
:::
Do you remember when we talked about factors that weaken your strong will? 🤔 It was stress and tiredness and lately we’ve been talking a lot about the danger of treating yourself badly and punishing (and getting into a trap of „everything or nothing” thinking” ⚠️).
:::
That’s why sometimes in order to rebuild and strengthen strong will you need rest, regeneration and pleasures that will give you energy and motivation to work 🤗.
:::
Task for today: Make a list of your ways of relax and pleasures. It is important so that they wouldn’t be contradictory to your goal (so e.g. don’t write on your list „eating huge pizza” or „eating chocolate cookies”  when your goal is to eat healthy 😉).
:::
It might be an evening with a good book 📖 or a movie 🎬, talk or meeting with a friend 💬, relaxing bath 🛀, walk around the neighbourhood 🏞, playing with dog 🐶, relaxing yoga session etc. 🧘🏼‍♀️
:::
So what are your ways to relax? Tell me! 😊

Next week: Sometimes it’s better to postpone

SELF-LOVE: Sugar Lip Scrub

SELF-LOVE 🙏❤
“Kiss Me” Sugar Lip Scrub 👄

This recipe is a classic! A little honey combined with sugar and almond oil is all you need to moisturize and slough off dead skin. All you need is:

2 teaspoons sugar 🍚
1 teaspoon honey 🍯
1 teaspoon almond oil / coconut oil 🥥/ olive oil
Mix everything together in a small bowl until you have a paste. Apply to lips with fingertips and massage into your lips to gently slough off dry, dead skin cells 😍. You’ll be tempted to eat the mixture – it tastes pretty darn good 😅! Rinse with warm water and follow with lip balm. Keep any extra in a small container 😊

SELF-LOVE: Rose water

SELF-LOVE 🙏❤ Are you ready for another recipe for home-made natural cosmetic?
Let’s make rose water! 🌹
.
Rose water is a cosmetic that is crucial in everyday make-up removal process. It is a perfect natural tonic that you can spray your face with after cleaning it 🧖‍♀️.
.
If you combine it with glycerine it will work as setting spray – it will improve your make up, make it last longer and will reduce the feeling of powderiness.
.
If you use it as tonic it will make your skin calm and will bring its pH balance 🤗
.
Rose water is perfect for delicate skin, allergic skin…it will work on any skin really! 😉
.
You’ll need:
🔹️250-300ml distilled water
🔹️rose patels (out of 3 big uncoloured roses) 🌹
🔹️10-20 drops of rose essential oil (optional)
.
1. Wash petals, put them in a pot and pour distilled water over it
2. Heat the water – it should be hot but it shouldn’t boil!
3. Turn stove off, cover the pot and set it aside to cool
4. Strain the brewing, pour it into a small bottle (spray one would be best), optional add essential oil.
.
To make the rose water last longer keep it in a fridge (for up to 2 months). Enjoy! 😘🌹

Rest

How do you rest? ⚠️
Do you lie down on a couch in front of a TV? And when you do, do you relax, focus on a movie and let your problems aside? ☺ Or do you watch a movie but in reality you keep thinking what you haven’t done, what still needs to be done, you analyze your problems and in fact have no idea what’s going on in the movie? 👀
:::
You need to LEARN TO REST! That’s right, learn to rest 😉
When it’s relax time you need to focus on here & now and enjoy the silence/movie/chill. 🤗
:::
Learn to „lock” your problems in a cage and keep them there for later 🗝, now enjoy your time off.
If you’re having a problem dividing relax time and „worrying time” 😅 plan it 😉. Find a spot in your calendar where you can sit for 15-30min and think about your situation, about solutions for possible problems etc. Do it during this time and then have proper time off.
:::
When it’s relax time it relax time! Remember! Otherwise you’ll never rest and you’ll never feel relaxed ⚠️

SELF-LOVE: Have fun!

SELF-LOVE 🙏❤
How old are you?
Do you still have your inner child in you? 🤪
:::
Today think of your favourite game/activity you used to do when you were a kid/teenager.
Drop all that adult life and have some fun! 🤗
:::
Maybe cook yourself a meal your Mom used to make for you when you were little? 😋
:::
Play some old tunes you used to listen to when you were a child! 🎶
:::
Today just be reckless and have some fun!
I’m sure you have some game that you used to love in your childhood. Maybe monopoly? Or Crash Bandicoot on Playstation? 😁
I love to play The Sims from time to time 🙈 (very rarely 😂😅).
What’s gonna be your fun activity?

SELF-LOVE: Suit up

SELF-LOVE 🙏❤
How’s your self-isolation going?
Are you stuck in pjs and without make up for weeks now?
Today I want you to jump out of pyjamas and suit up! 😉
Put on something nice, do your hair and make up and check yourself out in the mirror!
Maybe do some selfies? 😉😅
Simply dress up just for you, maybe try some new hairstyle or new kind of make up?
Have fun!

SELF-LOVE:Movie

SELF LOVE 🙏❤
How are you these days?
Are you calm? Are you relaxed?
I want you to pour yourself a glass of wine (or whatever your guilty pleassure drink is 😁) and turn your favourite movie or tv show on! 📺
I know it’s not a ground breaking or original idea but I want you to promise me that you’ll really do it and you’ll have that 2h (at least) to yourself! If not today then this weekend 😊
Please do it for me. Do it for yourself 🙏
For me there’s nothing more relaxing than a glass of white wine and Friends 😊❤

SELF-LOVE: Stay home

SELF-LOVE
Turn tv off, turn social media off (apart from @smileysociety of course 😉😂), stop listening to news and just relax.
What’s happening out there, is happening out there 🤷🏼‍♀️ and as it doesn’t concern you as long as you are at home 🏡.
Look at it as extra time at home to read a book you’ve always wanted to read, to watch a movie or tv shows everybody is telling you about 🎬, to take up some new hobby like decoupage or playing guitar 🎸, do yoga 🧘🏼‍♀️, do home fitness 💪 or do coloring like me 😁
I find it sooo relaxing 😍
What do you do these days?

Self-Love

SELF-LOVE: Read good book

SELF-LOVE 🙏
Turn off your tv.
Turn off your radio.
Put your phone down and have a moment to yourself ❤
Calm down.
Relax.
Forget for a moment about the world out there, just let it be.
Get a blanket, make yourself some nice tea, light some nice candles, put on some calm relaxing music and soak into a good book.
This is your time.
I personally recommend “The Organized Mind” by Daniel Levitin.
It will show you how to organize your thoughts, how to deal with stress and get rid of chaos in your head 🤯
