Vibes✨

Vibration: ‘a state of being, the atmosphere, or the energetic quality of a person, place, thought, or thing’

#Vibes

‘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

Protect Your Energy🧘🔋✨

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
  • 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.

🤫🤭😏🤡🤥💀🥀🌾

Personality traits:

  • Manipulators
  • Egotistical
  • Compulsive liars
  • Gossipers
  • Attention-Seeking
  • One-Uppers
  • Lack empathy
  • (Pathological) Jealousy
  • Complainers/Whiners

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 science of body language🤝

‘Kinesics’. A person’s demeanour and their behaviours can tell you a lot about them and their personality. You do not have to know the person and you may have never spoken to them. Body language can be subtle or blatantly obvious and can reveal a lot about a person’s true feelings.

Positive body language: Politeness, handshaking, holding hands, hugs, smiling, positive greetings, waving ;

Portray feelings of happiness, wellness, genuiness, trust, warmth, compassion, openness, love, positivity, authenticity

Negative body language: Arms folded, eyes covered, lack of eye contact, frown, clenched fists, smirk, faced away, talking fast, poor stance, hands in pockets;

Portray feelings of stress, anger, lies, secrecy, arrogance, disappointment, rage, hostility, frustration, hate, boredom, impatience, nervousness

Crossed legs can indicate a variety of one’s intent, depending on the context; engagement in conversation, relaxed mood, unfamiliarity, dominance, not receptive to open communication.

The list goes on and there is a lot of research done on this🧍🔬

Love yourself💖

Everyone experiences insecurities and self-esteem issues at some stage of their life. As I grow older, I am learning to love who I am, recognise my self worth and recognise and appreciate my good qualities. What’s not to love about Jo <333🥰🥰🥰

Whether you have been bullied, had body image issues, didn’t have many friends, had an unsupportive family, no hobbies or interests, didn’t talk about openly about your true feelings, had anxiety, parents have low self-esteem, didn’t perform well at school.. there are many reasons that can cause someone to have a low self-confidence. People who make you feel as if you are unworthy or unlovable are not the people you need in your life. Like attracts like. People who do not even like or respect themselves attract the same. People who respect themselves and respect others will attract the same. Don’t let someone get comfortable lying to you and disrespecting you

I am 23 now and would say I am pretty confident in myself. I believe you can be confident without being arrogant. I have dreams, ambitions, a good friend group and get on well with my family. I know I have lots of good qualities and that I am a good, loving person. I am smart, pretty, friendly and happy (most of the time). I find that spending more time at my hobbies and what I enjoy makes me a happier person. Not engaging or showing any interest with people who could not care less about my feelings is a weight off my shoulders. I am spending more time doing soul-nourishing activities such as art,photography, yoga, mindfulness and baking. More soul less ego🕊️ I find that I am singing a lot these days, a good indicator of my happiness and wellbeing. Inner peace is the new success 🕯️ There are many negatives in the world nowadays, such as racism, discrimination, health problems and more. Investing time doing things you love is a good way to build self-esteem, confidence and happiness. Spending time with friends often has a positive impact on one’s emotional health.

I have volunteered a lot throughout University and have found this is a good way to meet like-minded people,build self-assurance and team-building skills. Whether it is an hour a month or more, it makes me feel more productive and more valued. Family relationships can be strengthened by doing weekend activities. Problems with body image and bullying can vary from age to age and can fluctuate throughout one’s lifetime. The only way to deal with bullies is to not give them the reaction they want from you and to report it. Body image confidence can change from one day to the next, but if you focus on your good qualities rather than what you are insecure about you will realise you have a lot more good qualities than bad. Social media plays a big part in todays world regarding how people feel about their bodies. It is important to know that images are photoshopped and not real. Comparison is the thief of joy👀

Another part of learning to love yourself is knowing what people you should be keeping in your life. If someone does not value you or makes you questions your worth, why are they around? If someone is calling you names or picking on you, why would you have to put up with that? There are a gazillion people on this planet and knowing that you deserve to be treated with respect is an important step of learning to love yourself. Don’t let people use you, take advantage of you, label you, or determine your self-worth. You know yourself better than anyone. You know your past experiences, values and what you stand for. Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise. Know your worth👑 and slay👠

Minding your mental health during the Coronavirus pandemic 💆

If you enjoy this post subscribe below🌻

The Coronavirus is a phenomenon that has been affecting the world for a couple of months now. The lockdown period started in Ireland in February, 2020.  People have been confined to their homes for weeks. Schools, colleges and businesses have had to close and large gatherings have had to be cancelled. Many people have had to work from home, with only ‘essential’ workers allowed to leave the house to go to work. Social distancing measures were enforced, and hand sanitisers were sold out in no time.
The global pandemic has had an affect on everyone in many ways and will continue to have an affect on people and businesses for many months. In this blog, I discuss how people’s mental health is being affected and what they can do to take care of themselves.

Instead of the daily commute, people must work at home- this could mean sitting at the kitchen table or sitting at the same desk in their rooms for weeks. Of course, this will cause feelings of boredom, isolation and from time to time. Not seeing colleagues on a daily basis will surely have an affect on people’s overall happiness and wellbeing. There may be children in the house or a large family. Distractions and noise will not equate to very productive work over a long time.

The closure of shops, cinemas, pubs, cafés, restaurants will mean people are not mixing with each other or doing things they enjoy. On the plus side, people are saving money by not going to these places on a regular basis. However, many businesses have had to shut down and many people have lost jobs. It is a very uncertain time for many. Nobody knows how long the pandemic will last, although restrictions are easing in Ireland since the beginning of May so things are looking up.

I have made a list below of some things you can do for your mental wellbeing:

  • Start a new hobby (musical instrument,drawing, painting, photography, jigsaws, knitting, jewellery making, improve makeup skills, youtube channel, tiktok videos, blog, journaling)
  • Help out with chores (hoovering the house/car, dusting, washing up, painting,farming)
  • Clean your room
  • Get in touch with family members (grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, people abroad) and friends. Post them a card to let them know you are thinking of them.
  • Practice yoga or meditation (there are lots of great youtube videos out there)
  • Avoid watching the news too much or reading too many articles
  • Take a break from social media and deactivate your account if you have to
  • Listen to music
  • Browse online clothes stores
  • Plan your next holiday(s)

💆

There are many health services available that provide confidential counselling and I have provided a list below. It is important to note that these organisations are under tremendous pressure during the COVID-19 crisis.

Overall I believe Ireland is doing a great job with handling the coronavirus pandemic. We are lucky to have great people leading the country and it makes me proud to be Irish. Hopefully in the not too distant future things will be back to normal again.
