Protect Your EnergyπŸ§˜πŸ”‹βœ¨

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 β€œyes” 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
  • Be aware of who or what changes your energy.
  • Let go of things you cannot control
  • Repeat positive affirmations
  • Avoid gossiping
  • Avoid comparing yourself to others
  • Speak kindly to yourself and to others
  • Practice Meditation
  • Spend time in nature
  • Spend some time alone every now and then
  • Use crystals
  • Use essential oils
  • Visualise a bubble of protection around you

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.

TallinnπŸ‡ͺπŸ‡ͺ

Last summer, I visited Estonia and was there for three nights. I had never been there before so it was hard to know what to expect. We went to Tallinn, the capital. Tallinn is very pretty and unique. There is a town with lots of crafts and markets, there is also the Old Town. The architecture is very pretty and bright. The city reminded me of Prague in a way. The weather was good for the four days and we did lots of walking and sightseeing. We considered going to Helsinki for a daytrip as it is only across the sea but we didn’t- maybe next time. Below are some highlights, check out my Instagram for more β­

The benefits of walking in nature🌿

Walking in nature is something everyone should do regularly as it has many benefits for your general health and wellbeing. I love walking in nature everyday, whether it is around the countryside, at the beach or in the woods. I love living in the countryside as there is lots of space, big open fields and no traffic, crowds or noise. Below I have listed some of the benefits of getting some fresh air. 🧚🏼

  • Increases mood and makes you happier
  • Reduces stress and anxiety
  • Good for the lungs and immune system
  • Increases self-awareness
  • Gets creative juices flowing
  • Calming effect
  • Strengthens heart muscle
  • Eliminates fatigue

Simple touches to make any room look bigger and brighter✨

Make any room in your house instantly look bigger and brighter using these simple steps.

  1. Lighting: Brightly coloured walls can make a room look brighter and feel bigger and airier. Dark colours in the other hand, make a room look smaller. Big windows allow more light into the room than small windows. A light that does not hang low from the ceiling will maximise space.
  2. Plants: Having plants in the room can add and improve your overall happiness and wellbeing. Research proves that adding potted plants or a vase of flowers to a room can purify the air, increase your happiness and wellbeing and improve your night’s sleep.
  3. Furniture arrangement: Arrange your furniture in a way that the room is more spacious and does not obstruct light shining in a window. Don’t move furniture too often as it can sometimes scratch surfaces or mark the wall.
  4. Mirrors placed in the right part of the room can make a difference. Placing them across from a window maximises the size of a room. Clean mirrors and windows regularly using a cloth and glass cleaner.
  5. Reduce clutter: Keep the number of pictures or posters on the walls to a minimum, they can make the room crowded and darker. Have a small bin that is out of clear view for your rubbish. Rugs can make the room less spacious.
  6. Colour coordination: A colour scheme in a room can make a difference to the overall feel and look of the room. Paint, cushions, upholstery, pictures, ornaments. Check out homeware and interior websites for inspiration.
