Best kind of self-care

You know what’s best kind of self-love/self-care? 🤔 Taking care of your own health! 🤗
:::
➡️ First of all, treat yourself well! 🙏 Have a closer look on what you’re eating 👅. Do you plan your meals and grocery shopping 🗒 or do you just go to a store, buy whatever you see and put it all on a pan just to „throw” something into your belly 🤷🏼‍♀️? Do you bring enough vitamins, proteins, fiber? 🧐 Are your meals nutritious? 🥦🍌🍜
:::
Now, how’s your physical activity? 🤔 Do you workout 💪, practice some sport 🏀, go for walks , do yoga or pilates🧘🏼‍♀️? Physical activity has as much impact on your physical health as healthy eating 😉
:::
And now, how’s your mental health? 🧠 Do you sleep well? 😴 Do you feel confident? Are you anxiety free? 😇
Physical health (so healthy eating and regular physical activities) have great impact on mental health too! You know what they say – healthy body, healthy mind 😉
:::
➡️ Secondly, do you examine yourself? 📈📊 Do you do regular blood tests 💉, regular ultrasounds or x-rays of your stomach, lungs or heart? Do you go see a doctor regularly or only when you feel bad already? 😶
:::
I examine myself once a year. I do blood tests, check my heart, my lungs, my stomach and lady parts. You should too! 🤗
:::
➡️ And lastly, remember to seek help whenever you need it 🙏⚠️No matter if it’s something about your physical health or, especially, mental health! If you feel bad don’t hide it away! Go and get some help! 🙏

Winter is so bad for hair! 😖 They get weaker and weaker with every temperature change and constant putting a hat on and off makes them electrify and dry 💔

Other ways to say ‘I love you’

Do you celebrate #ValentinesDay? 💕 Do you like it? 🤗
:::
I don’t think there’s any other holiday that brings that much pressure 😰
:::
Before you start comparing yourself or your relationship to others while scrolling Instagram and seeing photos from so-to-seem perfect dates, 🙄 remember that what people post on Instagram isn’t their everyday life 😉. We all pick a photo that we look good on 🤩, we all pick a moment we are happy about ☺ and we usually share good news and positive things about ourselves 👍.
:::
Just because a couple posts a picture of them smiling and having a romantic evening, it doesn’t mean they don’t fight, they don’t have any bad moments or bad days 🤷🏼‍♀️
No one is perfect and there’s no such thing as a perfect couple 😉. We all have ups and downs.  I fight with my husband too and that’s normal 🤷🏼‍♀️
:::
Another thing – before you start comparing your partner to others and before you become overcritical remember that there are other ways to say „I love you” than buying flowers 🌹 or expensive gifts 🎁. If your partner doesn’t say „I love you” often it doesn’t mean that he/she doesn’t 😉. Maybe he/she’s just not that into words but shows it in everyday small deeds? 🤗 Like covering you with a blanket when you fall asleep on a couch? 😴 Or making you hot lemon tea when you don’t feel that well? 🤧 Or making you a sandwhich even though he/she is tired and doesn’t feel like getting up from couch? 🥪 Those are all acts of love too, remember 😉
:::
And lastly – if you’re single and don’t celebrate V-Day at all just take it easy 🤗. Being single is not bad and you should NOT feel sad that you’re not on some romantic date or that you didn’t get any flowers 😉. Buy yourself flowers ⚘, cook yourself a nice meal 🥘, spend a lovely evening with yourself or maybe with another friend who’s single 😊?
:::
Even thought I celebrate V-Day now with my husband, I’ve been single for 24 years before 😉 and believe me, I’ve been there and I know the feeling but there’s no need to be sad about some holiday, just get out and live that day as any other! 😁
