Here’s a little ✨Positivity Booster ✨
Did you know that our thoughts create our emotions?
Since we actually have control over our thoughts (yes, we really do - even though it’s hard to believe sometimes), we also have the power to start our day on a super positive note each and every day.
To help everyone through this resurgence of isolation, here are some of the key practices we’ll be employing day to day. Enjoy!
Try Remembering Your Dreams
We’re all dreamers at heart. An engaging practice to kick your day off with (and a WAY healthier habit than scrolling through IG first-thing) is to try to remember your dreams. Write them down in a notepad and reflect on them from time to time.
It’s not only fun to do, but writing down dreams has been known to reduce stress and boost creative thinking. Can you just imagine cooking up the latest Twilight Saga plotline with your eyes closed?! Yes, that really happened. + You’ll feel like you’ve achieved something and you’re not even outta bed yet!
Practise Self Care & Take Your Time With It
Enjoy your you-time. Here is our morning skincare routine…
Make A Smoothie
As we all know, the food we put into our beautiful bodies is just as vital as all of the skincare that we lather on our skin each day. Here are 4 of our favourite vegan smoothie recipes aimed to improve collagen production, assist with gut health and clear the skin from within:
For Your Mind & Body
Set boundaries -
Be conscious of how you might be vulnerable to “groupthink”— pressures to behave or think in ways that are contrary to your values. Listening to others is important, but not everything said is something you need to personally take on.
Reduce screen time -
Have trouble concentrating or remembering important things? Practice going to quiet and screen-free spaces to escape overstimulation. Take a walk in the park, turn off your phone notifications while you work, have lunch in quiet places. These are all good ways to restore depleted attention in your brain so you can concentrate better later.
Have a stretch -
If you're deep at work, or a little stiff from lounging around, set a timer to go off (we recommend hourly) and remind yourself to take a moment to assess your mood. If you’re feeling stuck, listless or overwhelmed, it might be time to move. Here are some stretches we’ve found helpful for working from home:
