⚠️7 things you should drop in 2021:
➡️ Living in the past 🙄– cut off 2020 for good and forget about it! 😅
➡️ Need to please everyone around you 😓 – not everyone deserves your time and effort, focus more on yourself! 🤗
➡️ Fear of change 😱 – change is good! Everybody is scared of something new, something unknown but it is so worth to take the risk usually and change e.g. your job, school or even a partner! 😜 If you feel that it’s a good change but you’re scared of it, go for it! 💪 It might be scary at first but in some time you’ll be glad you did it! 😚
➡️ Overthinking and excessive analyzing everything 🤯 – just stop! ❌ Don’t worry about problems that aren’t here, don’t analyze a situation that hasn’t happened yet! Stop imagining future problems and just focus on here & now 🙏
➡️ Cancelling time and/or plans for yourself in favour of people who won’t appreciate it 🙄 – if you have plans to stay at home in the evening in pjs and spend some quality time with yourself that’s ok 🤗! Don’t feel about it and don’t change those plans because of somebody else ❌
➡️Belief that you don’t have a purpose 😞 – yes you do! Bigger than you may think! 😚
➡️ Pretending to be someone you’re not 🤡 – just be yourself! Being yourself is trendy 😉
After tough 2020 (but don’t think about it now, it’s done, gone, we’re not living in the past 😅) we all need a propper self-love time! 🙏❤ Let’s make a whole month of it or even a year! 🤗
I’m doing a 28-day self-care challenge in February on my Instagram! 🤗 I’ll be giving tasks for you everyday in the morning to do something for yourself 🤗, I’ll be sharing even more recipes for homemade cosmetics 🧖♀️, uploading videos for relaxing/meditation sessions 🧘🏼♀️ and basically giving lots of love and encouraging you to take care of yourself! 😘
See my instastories for more info!
How’s your self-care time? 👌 Do you put yourself first? 💅 Do you allow yourself to say ‘no’ to others and ‘yes’ to you and your needs? 🤗
I gotta say that I have finally learned to do that this year 😊 I started planning my days off and by planning I mean writing in my calendar “REST TIME – DO NOT PLAN/DO ANYTHING!” haha 😅.
But I’ve really started putting myself first too. I don’t feel bad rejecting some other plans if, e.g. a friend calls me on my day off to do something/party and I say “sorry, it’s me-time and I want and need to rest and spend some time by myself” 😉. If you say that to your friend and he/she doesn’t understand it then he/she is not a friend! 😉
I really cherish me-time and I try to have such a day at least once a month 😊
How about you? Do you have enough of me-time? Do you spend some time alone just chilling and having some quality time with yourself? 🤩

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 😊❤

Turn off your tv.
Turn off your radio.
Put your phone down and have a moment to yourself ❤
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 🤯
Stop seeing negativity! Instead make yourself a natural home-made face mask and relax!
NUTRITIONAL MASK 🧖♀️
Nutritional mask regenerates your skin, rebuilds it and delivers many microelements that are needed for its propper functioning. It also has anti-inflammatory and soothing effect. It is perfect for people who not only want to refresh but also deeply nourish facial skin. It is great for people with dry skin, hypoxic and grey but oily or mixed skin owners will also feel benefits of it.
