Vibration: ‘a state of being, the atmosphere, or the energetic quality of a person, place, thought, or thing’
‘Your energy introduces you before you even speak’
Have you ever caught yourself saying ‘I liked the vibe of that café’ ‘That dude has weird vibes‘ ‘ I really like her vibe’ ‘We were vibing’
You can manifest change according to how you direct your thoughts and emotions
The higher your vibration is, the more in touch you are with your higher self
The lower your vibration is, the more out of sync you are with your higher self, and the more conflict you experience in life
‘Everything in life is vibration’- Albert Einstein

Spend time in nature
Surround yourself with people who lift you up, rather than drag you down. Spend time with people who make you feel better about yourself and who you can ‘vibe’ with. Healthy relationships raise your vibrations (good vibes), while conflict has the opposite effect.

Being tapped into our energy and the energy of those around us can be beneficial. If you are someone who is sensitive to the emotions of those around you or someone who is easily influenced by the energies and opinions of others, this blogpost may be helpful. If you are an empath or highly sensitive person, soaking up negative energy of those around you can leave you feeling drained and exhausted. If someone or something is mentally draining you, you are going to feel terrible. Protecting your energy is important for your mental and physical health and determines your overall happiness. 🧘
Below are some ways you can protect your emotional energy and inner peace
Tune into how you are feeling
Trust in yourself
Be less reactive, or non-reactive
Learn to say No to people who drain you. Do you often say “yes” to things you don’t feel like doing, just to be polite, or because you feel like you have to?
Please yourself before pleasing others, your needs are important as anybody else’s. Being a people-pleaser can take a toll on your wellbeing
Set healthy boundaries and establish healthy relationships
It is no secret that toxic people are skilled at draining the life out of you. Cutting energy vampires out of your life or consciously avoiding these leeches will cause a drastic improvement in your psychological wellbeing, happiness and quality of life. Nobody is obliged to stay in a toxic environment or be around these types of people.
Maybe you have some of these traits or can identify these traits in others? Identifying these types of people and practicing self-care is key. 🙂🗝️💆👌
The third Monday in January is considered ‘the most depressing day of the year’. Why is this you may ask? The holidays are over, the weather is fairly miserable and many Resolutions of the previous year have failed. Below I have created a list of things to do if you are having a rough day. 🍃
Visit a neighbour – think, are there any old people living nearby who might enjoy a chat and a cup of tea? These people might be living alone and could do with some help or company.
Do some gardening
Do some yoga or meditation
Wear a face mask
Have a bubble bath
Change your bedsheets and pjs
Have some icecream
Watch a funny movie
Make a nice cup of tea to have with your favourite biscuit
It is ok and good to cry when you feel sad. Anybody and everybody should cry every now and then (cool people cry too). Crying releases endorphins and oxytocin. Suppressing emotions has detrimental effects in the long-run and can cause depression, anxiety or physical stress on your body. (Sadness and depression are not the same thing- many people use these terms interchangeably).
I have never made French Toast before so I was looking forward to trying this delicious recipe by Glenisk. The French Toast is served with Glenisk Organic Greek Style Rich Dark Cherry Yogurt. This recipe turned out great and I would definitely make this French Toast again for a treat.
1-2 tsp Cinnamon 4 Medium eggs 1 tbsp Vanilla Essence 8 Slices Whole meal/brioche or sourdough bread 2 tbsp Oil 200g Glenisk Organic Greek Style Rich Dark Cherry Yogurt
Garnish (optional) Fresh fruit and icing sugar
Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk, add vanilla essence and combine. Place a pan on medium heat. Drizzle with oil.
Pick the bread up with a fork and dip back and front in egg mixture, do this one at a time.
Transfer the egg dipped pieces of bread to the preheated pan and fry for a minute on either side until golden and the egg mixture is cooked.
Sprinkle French toasts with cinnamon and icing sugar and serve with Dark Cherry Yogurt and fresh fruit.
This smoothie was quite thick so I would recommend adding more than 300ml milk. I like the combination of peanut butter, banana and cocoa powder and this is a smoothie I would make again.
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp porridge oats
1 tbsp flax seeds
1 tbsp chia seeds
Add the bananas,cocoa powder, oats, seeds, peanut butter and 300ml milk and blend for at least 30 seconds, until completely smooth. If it is is too thick, add some more milk and blend again. Pour into two glasses and serve with a straw.
