A magnificent day with a friend πŸ₯°

Today has been absolutely magnificent. I spent the day with a friend in JΓΆnkΓΆping. We went to Rosenlundsbadet were we treated ourselves to a massage and then we relaxed in the pool.

After this we went to Pizza Hut for dinner, it was incredibly delicious.

I even took some time to go shopping before I met up with my friend. I bought a gift for my boyfriend and I also found a beautiful red dress that I look forward to wearing this summer.

  • I hope you have had a wonderful day as well.

Soon I will relax, recover and replenish my energy – only 12 workdays left πŸ™

There are only 12 workdays left of this semester, then my summer vacation will begin 😍. I will be free from work for 7 weeks, which I truly, truly look forward to. I am so happy that I have managed to keep working 100% every day, even after everything that has happened. However, I feel like these 7 weeks of summer vacation will be exactly what I need right now. I really need a break from my work, from the school building and most importantly from Friday’s at work. These 7 weeks will be my time to relax, recover and replenish my energy. πŸ™

Getting a soothing massage πŸŒΊ

I am so looking forward to Saturday πŸ₯³. I will go to a Spa with a friend for a couple of hours and get a massage. It will be so warm, nice and relaxing. I used to go get a massage every now and then but it has been completely off my list of things I even think about doing for quite some time now. However, I think it is time to start letting my body relax and trust again.

After the massage we will relax in the warm bubble bath. To top it all off, we will go to a nice restaurant afterwards for a lovely dinner. It will be such a cozy, soothing and pampering day. Just what I long for. πŸ™πŸŒΊ

  • Do you have some nice plans for this week?

A reliefgiving Saturday

Today we went to JΓΆnkΓΆping to do some shopping. I bought the Huawei p30 pro yesterday

and today I bought some new clothes for my babies. We also bought a lot of delicious Asian food that we will cook tonight.

We have decided to have a relaxing evening at home tonight, just the four of us. Two friends were supposed to join us for dinner but I decided to cancel our plans. Sometimes it is better to take a step back, relax and find your way back into feeling better again. Being at home with my babies will be perfect for tonight. I feel slightly better than yesterday. πŸ™πŸŒΈπŸŒΈπŸŒΈ

When it hurts so much you just can’t take it anymore πŸ¦‹

When your pain is so intense and so “in your face” that it feels like you just can’t take it anymore – breathe and trust that this too shall pass. What doesn’t kill you, can make you stronger – it is true, it is not just a catchy phrase. Keep breathing deeply, drink lots of water and give yourself some mental rest.

This too shall pass, the pain will fade away and reliefgiving hope will take its place if you relax and allow. One breath at a time.

Give yourself time to listen to the soothing stillness within

On the days when you feel exhausted, give yourself a lot of time to rest mentally. Perhaps you have a lot to do and it is not possible for you to lay down and rest at all during your day, but you can always give yourself a moment here and there where you rest mentally. That is just as beneficial.

Take a moment to close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and listen to the soothing stillness within. Stay in this comforting place of ease for a minute or two and allow your body to relax. Then, gently open your eyes, smile and thank your body for this relaxing moment.

As you move on with your day do so with the intention of being extra kind, loving and gentle with yourself.

Hide away from the world for a while – reset, recharge and refocus πŸŒ±

It is ok to hide away from the world for a while, to back away from all the noice and allow your mind and body some rest.

You don’t have to explain or justify, just allow yourself the time you need to reset, refocus and recharge. If they were not by your side when life was beating you up, they could not possibly understand how tired you are on the inside. Listen with love to your body’s messages, allow yourself the time you need to rest. One step at a time. 🌱

Use your imagination, live out your fantasy and feel better

Take a few moments every day to imagine. Visualize beautiful, relaxing scenarios where you can rest mentally and emotionally. Give yourself the gift of pleasurefilled scenarios that make you feel better.

A few minutes of day dreaming will be a reliefgiving break that can improve not only how you feel but your entire day as well. Try this every day for a week, especially if you are having a hard time right now. Give yourself time to relax, time to enjoy your fantasy. Nothing will improve your life more than caring about how you feel and deliberarely doing something to feel better.

You can do this, you are stronger than you think

Just keep breathing. One step at a time. Some days you just have to sooth yourself into feeling relief. It is ok. You are doing the best you can. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Stay in that quiet place for a moment and keep breathing deeply.

Don’t give up, there is always a way for life to work out even better than you can imagine. You don’t have to see it right now and you don’t have to understand how – just keep breathing. You are doing better than you think, give yourself a break. You have come this far, and you are still breathing. You can do this.
