Spring fever

Nature is waking up after winter, everything is blooming 🌸, spring is here and with that – spring fever…
Spring fever is any of a number of mood, physical, or behavioral changes, which may be experienced coinciding with the arrival of spring, particularly restlessness, laziness, and even amorousness 🙄.
🔸️feeling week, powerless 😮‍💨
🔸️sleepiness 😴
🔸️mood swings 😵‍💫
🔸️headaches 🤕
🔸️trouble with sleeping 😵
Have you experienced it? I gotta say that I am feeling sleepy/powerless and can’t get a good sleep lately 🤷‍♀️.
How can we fix/avoid that? 🤔
➡️ Stay physically active! 💪 Go for walks 🚶‍♀️, bike rides 🚴‍♂️, jogging – try spending as much time outside as possible. This way you expand capacity of your lungs and get your breath deeper 🤗. You also boost release of endorphins – happy hormones and lower release of stress hormones – cortisol 🤩.

➡️ Make sure you sleep well 🛌 – sleep 7-8h, try making a routine and go to sleep same time every night. If you have time – take 15-20min naps during the day too, they are proved to be very healthy! ☺️ Remember to relax in the evening, avoid blue light (no phone in bed!), make yourself a tea ☕️, have a bath 🛀 and/or light a scented candle

➡️ Remember about vitamins! 🔆 Supply your organism with as many vitamins as possible and do it in a natural way (no pills 💊) – drink smoothies and/or fresh squeezed juices – mix fresh fruit 🍒 and vegetables 🥕 but also mix various vitamins (e.g. vitamin C that you’ll get from parsley, kiwi 🥝 or lemon 🍋; vitamin E present in nuts 🥜 or olive oil; vitamin A from kale, spinach 🍃 or carrot; magnesium from banana 🍌, dates or avocado 🥑)

➡️ Last but not least: drink water! 💧 Make sure to drink 2-2,5 l of water (fresh water, juices, tea etc. don’t count 😉). Drink regularly throughout the day (e.g. 1 glass every hour)
Easy right? 😉


SELF LOVE: Face Mask for Spring

Winter is finally behind us and it’s time for Spring showers and sunshine 🤩. If the cold winter months have left you skin feeling dry and dull, you’re not alone.
Papaya Skin-Brightening Face Mask 🤩
This is a very simple face mask meant to bring a natural glow back to your complexion. You’ll get rid of those dead, dry skin cells thanks to the natural exfoliator in the Papaya, leaving your skin bright and beautiful 🥰. Not only does honey help bind this all together, it will also soothe your skin.
What You Need:
🔸️ ½ cup of mashed papaya
🔸️ 1 teaspoon of honey 🍯
🔸️ 1 whipped egg white 🥚
Make the Mask:
➡️ Separate your egg white and whisk it until it has a soft whipped texture.
➡️ Cut and mash your papaya. If you have food processor, this step is super simple! If not, just cut up the papaya and mash it by hand with a potato masher or sturdy fork.
➡️ Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.
Use the Mask:
Make sure your face is clean. You don’t need to scrub, just a good rinse with warm water and pat it dry with a towel. Then carefully apply the mask with your fingers, making sure to avoid the area around your eyes 😊. 
Sit back and relax and let the mask sit for 10-15 minutes. Practice a little mindfulness or meditation while you let the mask sit 🧘‍♀️. When the time is up, wash the mask off with warm water and scrub your face well to really exfoliate. 
That’s it! Your skin will have a bright glow almost instantly! 🤗

Spring time = time to bloom!

This autumn and winter has been tough but spring is finally here and you know what spring means? It is all about blooming, growing and basically starting new life! 🤗
And it’s not only about trees, grass and flowers, no no! Having those couple tough past months behind us we are ready to leave it all behind and bloom! 🤗
I’ve had plenty plans for 2020, I have even more plans for 2021 yet with all that stress and still not being able to find that energy back past-covid I’ve been powerless, lazy and tired all the time lately 😪
But that’s ok! There’s still plenty of 2021 left so we can all still get back to working on our projects, pursue our dreams and reach our goals! 🤗
Spring is here which also means that the day is longer, sun is shining and we get more vitamine D from the Sun so we should be more energetic and more willing to work! 😊
You just have to get up and take that 1st step! 😊
So who’s with me? Who still wants to make 2021 great?
Let’s all grab that brush and paint our lives with energy! 🤗
And to be even more precise I am grabbing my special pen and starting working on my 2nd novel! Finally! 😊

Be positive!
