Ideas for practicing emotional SELF - CARE I TIPS

Hello once again! As I woke up today I realized it won't be a nice day. Because it was so freaking cold and it was raining. To be honest I even thought about going back to warm bed and miss today's lecture... But I didn't. So I made a cup of white tea with peaches, ate my breakfast, got ready and there was still more than two hours left until my bus. I could've watched a movie or a few series of something, but I decided that today will be all about my emotional self - care. That's what I will be talking about in this post mainly.

'' When you say yes to others make sure you are not saying no to yourself''
                                                                                                             - Paulo Coelho

Here I will give you 6 ideas of practicing this kind of self - care where you will be saying ''yes'' to yourself.


  1. Meditate. It is all about breathing and focusing on your body from head to toe. Turn on calm music (wordless would be the best, trust me) and just take your time. The best part of this is that there's no specific time you need to do this. Spend as much as you want!
  2. Practice Yoga. Well it doesn't only help you to relax and make yourself feel better. It also helps to become more flexible and concentrated on some task you are obligated to do.
  3. Light scented candles. Just do it. Scented candles are a must have when it comes to feeling better/loving yourself. Plus, they also help to concentrate on certain things.
  4. Talk with friends. Talking with your best friend might be one of the trickiest parts in all of this. But when you get used to it you will see that it is more helpful and more fun than you think.
  5. Journal. Organizing your day, sketching, writing down idead or stories. It was and will always be a good idea, so go on, buy a journal/notebook and start this!
  6. Write down a list of what you are grateful for. A list of things you are grateful for might be the most calming thing ever. Today when I opened my journal I started to write that and in the end I was with a playful smile on my face. I'm not lying! Try that and you will see it by yourself.

So I hope this was useful not only for me and see you in the next post where I will be talking about mental self - care! 
See you soon & have a wonderful week!

UPDATES IN MY LIFE

6 am. Friday morning. Everyone is rushing into their daily routine. And then there's me. Sitting on bed. Enjoying last moments of lets say holidays, birds are chirping, sun is overtaking the day and I'm about to make a smoothie and maybe finally write a new post, because it's about time. I don't know about what it will be, but I hope it won't stop here 'cause these last days, weeks, months whenever I opened this page to write I got stuck in my minds and couldn't finish it all and etc. Oh well, happens..

Anyway, it is now 20th of July and after nine days I'll be 20 years old... While others at this age becomes billionaires, competes in Olympics, gets to be a cast of some movie, I can't say the same about myself haha... I'm mainly starting to focus on myself and what do I want from life. It's a though thing, because I want a lot and to have it, lets admit that, it requires a lot of work. I'm not saying I would give up only because it does…

What's in my cosmetic bag? Travel edition I TIPS

Hello to all of you! Tomorrow will be 24th of December so it means Christmas came really fast this year hasn't it? Also, tomorrow me and my grandmother will be going to other city. To celebrate Christmas with my cousins and their parents. We will be taking a train so it will be fun. And with that I want to start the topic which I will be talking today.
When it comes to travel lets all agree - at the beginning we all get headaches what to bring with us, what to wear and many more. Personally, I get headache only with calculating time. I mean - calculating how much I will spend time getting ready, when I need to leave my house and etc. Because my biggest problem is a fear of being late. I don't become crazy while choosing what to wear, I get crazy when I don't make certain things on time.
Anyway, I won't be talking about time, clothes or what makeup you should do on journey day. I will tell what I am bringing with myself in my cosmetic bag all the time. So enjoy reading …

2018 busy year & living abroad???? I ChitChat

Happy New Years and welcome back to this blog! From the title you may guess that today I'll be talking about few stuff that keeps popping up in my head more often.

My best friend recently got accepted to uni that she applied to. And it is abroad. Other friend will be going to US soon too.. So in the end of the day I realized there will be no one left here with who I like spending my time. Mainly I'll be lonely af. All my friends aren't in Lithuania. And I always keep thinking to move out. Not just to other apartment in the other side of the street where I could see my family. But to other country, other city. Somewhere else, where I could start living on my own and enjoy life like I always wanted heh..
So yeah..
Basically, I want to see the world outside of Lithuania. Even that thought makes me exited and motivated to plan my future maybe in Brighton? Edinburgh? Or even Colchester? Mainly in UK. Because I loved that country since my childhood and at some days I catch mysel…
