Check out my Smiley Advent Calendar on Instagram to see how to make 3D stars out of paper, gnomes out of wool, vintage decoupage Christmas ornament and more!
There are so many great ideas for homemade Christmas decorations!!! Are you making some? What do you have ready for Christmas already? Or maybe you’re missing energy this winter? 😔
Here’s 5 tips that you need to practice to get more energetic! 💪
:::
➡️ START YOUR DAY WELL
Good morning routine is very important! You could start with a glass of fresh squeezed lemon with hot water & honey (that’s what I do) 🍋, maybe try yoga to calm your mind 🧘‍♀️ or jogging to boost your energy! 💪
:::
➡️ BE ACTIVE
You can combine nr 1 with nr 2 but if you don’t have the time to move your body in the morning do it in the afternoon/evening! Go for a walk, hit the gym or simply do couple fitness excercises at home 💪
:::
➡️ EAT HEALTHY
That’s probably the most important rule ⚠️. You NEED TO provide good nurtitous food to your organizm so that it can change it into energy 💪
:::
➡️ DRINK WATER
Drink at least 2l of water per day! Remember, your body is made 78% of water so you need to keep that number!
:::
➡️ GET SUNLIGHT
Go for walks whenever you can, especially when the Sun is out! It is very important to get at least 20min of sunlight per day to get vitamine D into your body 🌞

Time for 4th part of our 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care with 6 more self-care tips for you!
:::
🔸️ 19. Embrace and love the things that make you different 💜. This is what makes you special.
🔸️ 20. Realize that beauty cannot be defined. It is what you see it as. Don’t let any of those Photoshopped magazines make you feel like your body isn’t perfect. Even those models don’t look like that in real life 😉
🔸️ 21. Follow your passion 🤩. You know that thing that gets you so excited but scares you at the same time. The thing you really want to do but have convinced yourself it won’t work. You should go do that!
🔸️ 22. Be patient but persistent 💪. Self-love needs to be practiced daily but can take a lifetime to master. So be kind and support yourself through the hard times.
🔸️ 23. Treat others with love and respect ❤🙏. Treat others how you want to be treated. That doesn’t mean everybody will always repay the favor, but that’s their problem not yours.
🔸️ 24. Learn to say ‘no’. Saying ‘no’ sometimes doesn’t make you a bad person, it makes you a smart person 😉
