Summer Self-Care Guide

Buy yourself a bouquet of flowers

Why? Because you deserve it. And because you do not need a special occasion to make a kind gesture to the person who deserves to be loved and respected every day – you. Besides, the beautiful appearance of flowers and their pleasant aroma are enough to light up your home and bring positive emotions. So, next time you are passing through the flower market, grab yourself some beautiful flowers.

TIP: Here is how you can keep fresh flowers alive for longer, according to florists! 💐

Getting yourself some flowers is a kind gesture you can do for yourself

Call your girlfriends

Let’s face it – maybe lately you seem to have abandoned your social life and shrunk into your shell, within the confines of the comfort of your own home. And the truth is that life makes the most sense when someone loves you, when you have someone to share both the happy moments and the difficulties with. So, don’t neglect the people who hold on to you. Call them today just to let them know you are thinking of them and that you miss them. You will surprise yourself with how much joy and meaning you will fill their day with!

Transform your personal space

No, we are not talking about tedious spring cleaning here. Let summer into your home and workplace with something small but special (like the bouquet of flowers you have been meaning to buy). A new set of linens or a beautifully framed painting, for example, can do wonders for your space and mental health. Try to turn your home space into a special place where you feel the most relaxed and at peace. Think about which changes will benefit you, your lifestyle, and your space. Don’t be afraid to experiment and try new things when it comes to home decor. Incorporate wellness products into your bedroom, or turn your bathroom into a relaxing SPA experience. The options are endless!

Let go of guilt

Whatever you want to say, say it. Whatever you wanted to do, do it! Stop blaming yourself. As women, we think too much, feel too strongly, worry about everything, and aren’t convinced we deserve the good things that happen to us. Breathe in. Breathe out. Instead of thinking about the past, focus on the lessons you have learned and the beautiful experiences you have had. If you are going through a rough patch right now, think about how the anger, sadness, and frustration you are feeling now will make you even stronger in the future. So, take up a relaxing physical activity to help you let go. This can be yoga classes, meditation, Pilates, stretching at home, or tapping into the power of breath work. Also, try to spend more time in nature, just enjoying the views, air, and breathing deeply!

Trust the power of words

The law of attraction is one of the most relevant topics in our time. Our thoughts, good or bad, reflect on what happens to us at any given moment. We send love to the universe, and it picks up our highly emotional vibrations and responds with the same love. If your greatest desire is “I don’t want to be sick”, she will only “hear” the words “want” and “sick”. So you need to program your direction to “I want to be healthy”. This way, the Universe will “hear” the right dreams and desires, and it will make sure that you experience the events of your earthly journey in the best way for you. Another thing you can do is to learn to work with crystals! Crystals hold powerful energy that can help you manifest your desires with a stronger and more powerful voice to the universe. So, learn how to manifest with crystals and channel all your innate power and positive energy into changing your life for the better!

TIP: Try these tricks for removing negative energy from your home! That way, you can make space for new, positive energy. There are certain items that have no place in your home. Learn which things in your home you need to get rid of, according to both Psychology & Feng Shui!

Candles, crystals, and Palo Santo will all help you tap into yourself and your desires

Start planning your next trip

The very fact that you have something new and exciting coming up will fill you with positive energy the moment you make that decision! Of course, according to your taste and your abilities. Sometimes getting away from the city you live in for a short time does wonders for your inner world. And you don’t have to choose a faraway exotic country and do heavy damage to your savings, there are lots of wonderful and full of magic destinations close to you. So, plan a day trip or disconnect for a week, whatever works for you and your lifestyle!
