⚠️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!
I think food is a big part of self-love 😋😅 not only eating delicious stuff makes your mood bettet but I find whole process of preparing a dish relaxing. You go into kitchen, turn your mind off and start creating something delicious out of seperate things 😍 It always find this whole process amazing how we take some seperate ingredients and when we mix them together we receive something amazing 🤤 Don’t you agree?
So today as a part of self-love not only eat something you love but create it yourself. Go into kitchen and get creative. Maybe you’ll think of some new dish? Or try some new recipe?
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.
🔸️1/2 ripe avocado 🥑
🔸️1 yolk 🥚
🔸️1 teaspoon of honey 🍯
1. Mix all ingredients (or blend) until it is smooth paste
2. Put it on your face, leave it on for 10-15min, wash it off with warm water.
How are you guys? Have you picked a day for your self-love time? I hope you did cause today I’m gonna show you an idea for quick home-made SPA! 🧖♀️
Have you ever made your own cosmetic? Today I’m gonna tell you how to quickly prepare a home-made natural scrub.
All you need is:
🔸️1 glass of bown sugar
🔸️1/2 glass of coconut oil
🔸️juice squeezed out of fresh grapefruit
1. Mix coconut oil with sugar
2. Add grapefruit peel and juice
3. Gently mix everything
And that’s it!
Your 100% natural scrub is ready!
Now go use it (it will leave your skin a bit oily and sticky, just use lots of warm water to wash it off) and get some magazine or book for a chill evening! 😚
Alright guys, time for new, and possibly the most important, weekly section in Smiley Society 😉
You know how I divide my week into tasks and asign each day to one of my projects (yes, I love planning and being organized 🙈)? So e.g. every Monday I work on my blog and prepare all posts for the upcoming week, every Tuesday I do research for my 2nd book…etc etc. Thursdays used to be kind of „Others” section when I did some other stuff… Now it’s time to asign a permament thing for Thursdays and this is what my new section is going to be about – SELF-LOVE 🙏❤
That’s right. I decided to plan couple hours of every Thursday to spend, well, with me! 😊 Either reading 📖, doing yoga 🧘🏼♀️(I plan to start practicing it), doing some home SPA or anything else that is relaxing. And I advice you to do the same! 😉
We all need that time for ourselves, to get our thoughts together, to feel good in your own skin, to just relax and rest from everybody else.
You need to have some time for the relationship you have with yourself! 🤗 You can’t share love and love others until you love yourself, until you feel good with yourself! 😉 We all need Self-love.
So from now on, every Thursday, I’ll be sharing with you my ideas for those Self-Love days. Either recommending a good book for you to to read 📖, uploading a recipe for some good (but fit! 😉) food (let’s come back to Comfort Food section 🍪) or even showing you how to make some home-made cosmetics for your home natural SPA 🧖♀️.
What do you think? Are you with me? Do you like this idea?
Let me know! 🤗
And as for a task for today – pick a day in your week to have those Self-Love days. It doesn’t have to be Thursday like me. It can be during weekend too. Just pick it and mark it in your calendar 📆 for good. It’s not about a whole day, just 2-4h for yourself.
You can do it. You HAVE TO do it. If you think that you don’t have that much time for yourself….well…maybe it’s time to rearrange some things, to rearrange some prorities 😉. After all you’ll have that „me, myself & I” relationship your whole life. You need to make it work. You need to feel good in it. You need to love yourself 🙏❤
