Starting today for next 5 self-love posts that I share on Thursdays we’re gonna go through 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care ๐Ÿ˜Š. Start loving yourself! That’s first step to being happy!
:::
1-6 ways of practicing self-love/self-care:
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ 1. Write a love letter to yourself. Write down everything you like/love about yourself ๐Ÿ˜
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ 2. Learn when to stop and relax. We all live in crazy speed and that’s not healthy. Try to plan at least 1 day a week for regeneration when you have the time to think, to listen to music, to meditate or even to just lay down and do nothing ๐Ÿค—.
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ 3. Find time for your close ones. You can’t work all the time ๐Ÿ˜‰. Take that 1 evening off and go out, meet with your friends, your family
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ 4. Be active! Do you remember my post last week about happy hormones (if not, you should! It’s under a pink photo with a bubble gum ๐Ÿ˜‰)? We’ve learned that working out and being physically active boosts production ofย endorphins ๐Ÿค—
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ 5. Learn to forgive yourself. IF you’ve made some mistake, even a big one, it’s already in the past, what is done is done. Try to draw conclusions and use it as experience of what not to do in the future ๐Ÿ˜˜. But most importantly – don’t be angry with yourself!
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ6. Have good sleep ๐Ÿ˜ด! It is highly important to function well! What can you do to sleep well? Don’t dring too much coffee or black tea, try not to stress that much and don’t work too much ๐Ÿ˜…

Sleep well

Today I want to talk to you about sleep. Having a good night sleep and feeling rested in the morning has enormous effect on your mood so it is important to make sure you sleep well. โš ๏ธ Hereโ€™s 12 facts about SLEEPING.๐Ÿ’ค
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ
1.It is very important what you do 2-3h before sleeping. When you fall asleep while overthinking, the mind remains active as if you were awake which is why you tend to wake up tired. Try to relax before sleep time. Also, donโ€™t look at blue light (so no phones, no tv) at least 30min before bed time ๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿ“ฑ
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ
2.Bedroom should be only used for sleeping (and sex). You shouldnโ€™t work in bed, watch tv or even read books. Make sure that your brain connects bed only with rest. This way your mind will reprogram into โ€ža sleeping modeโ€ when you go to bed and youโ€™ll fall asleep easier. Bed is not a place for work! ๐Ÿ›Œ
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ
3.Medically speaking, it would be best if your bedroom had only bed in it and nothing more. If you can do it. Especially get rid of radios, TV and computers ๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿ–ฅ
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ
4.When you wake up in the middle of the night don’t check what time it is ๐Ÿ•œ
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ
5.Find your rhythm and try to go to sleep at the same time everyday and get up at the same time ๐ŸŒ 
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ
6.Make sure it is as dark in your bedroom as it can get. The darker the better. It helps your body produce melatonin (an important hormone) ๐ŸŒƒ
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ
7.Make sure it is quiet. No clock that tick tocks, no humming sound, nothing. It should be total silence there ๐Ÿ”‡
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ
8.The older you get the less sleep you need. When 20-30 years old you need 7.5-8h of sleep everyday; 30-40 around 7h. When youโ€™re over 40 only 6h of sleep will be enough and over 50 even 5h will do. But! Sleeping for less than five hours any night decreases the productivity of your immune system, metabolism and the bodyโ€™s response to stress ๐Ÿคฏ
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ
9.Good sleep makes you more creative and makes your memory stronger ๐Ÿง 
๐Ÿ”ธ
10.Lack of a good night sleep makes it difficult to absorb new things ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
๐Ÿ”ธ
11.Getting more sleep will decrease your chances of experiencing and being more affected by negative emotionsโ˜บ
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ
12.The happier you are, the less sleep you require to function in everyday life. Sadness increases the urge to sleep more ๐Ÿค—
