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? 😉

Smiley Future – Step 41

How are you finding our latest steps about lack of motivation? 😊 Do they help you? Do those methods help you fight laziness and get to work? 💪 If not, do not give up, keep looking! Try to learn to understand your body, your needs! 🤗
Today I want to ask you an important question: Is following your dream… a pleasure to you? 🤔
Surprised? I feel like we’re so often telling ourselves that we’re „fighting with ourselves”, „overcoming our weaknesses”, „changing for better” (do you see how negative those messages sound? 🙄) that word ‘pleasure’ is no longer in our vocabulary 😑. And it is really hard without it!
If what you’re doing doesn’t give you any pleasure it will be hard for you to last on this path longer than couple weeks 😉
That’s why a task for today is: find pleasure on your way of reaching your goal 🤩
Let’s see some examples:
➡️ If your goal is to lose weight: write down what type of physical activity you like most 🏊‍♂️⛹️‍♂️🚴‍♂️
➡️ If you’re setting up a new business: write down what part of your new challenge you  like most, maybe you like creating a business plan? Or reaching our to clients? 💬
➡️ Turn some music you like on and make it nice background to your work 🎶
➡️ Reward yourself! 🏆
My 3 goals I’m focusing on now are: making @smileysociety big 🔝, writing 2nd novel 📖 and losing weight 💪 and what gives me pleasure in those projects are: with @smileysociety I love reading your comments and nice messages from all of you 📩, while working on my novel I love writing and letting all emotions go ✒, putting them on paper and as for losing weight – taking care of my health makes me happy 🤗, I feel good that I eat well but also – I love the feeling after a good workout! 💪
What are some nice things you like about your goals/projects? 😁
