Habits to improve your happiness at home

We all know how busy our lives can be and the many daily struggles we can face. Whether you work full time, part time or spend large parts of your day at home, your home should be a place where you feel relaxed and content being in, not anxious or tense. Many of us may find things regarding our homes overwhelming or stressful when we consider them such as chores or bills etc. To eliminate these stressors becoming overwhelming here are a few things you can do to ensure your home is a place of happiness and general well being.

To start your day positively and remind yourself of all the things in your life you are blessed with, count your blessings and use these as reminders around your house for encouragement throughout the day. Write a list of the things you are thankful for that day and put it somewhere you will see it repeatedly throughout the day, such as the fridge. Decorate the house with these blessings such as photos of family or friends, of memories or quotes and verses to help you focus on gratitude and give you a positive mindset if you may be feeling down. Being able to look around and see reminders of why your life has meaning will make you feel grateful and surrounded by love.

Starting good morning habits concerning cleaning will help take the stress of chores and things we may worry about to help improve happiness at home. Something as simple as making the bed in the morning and making sure the sink is clean will start you day off productively and take a bit of stress off the many chores you may have to complete in your busy day.

Another idea is practicing kind acts for others. Taking time out to spend quality moments with those loved ones you may have photos of stuck around your home will leave your feeling happier in the home. Having a monthly dinner date with friends, starting a book club or even sending notes or messages via social media to let your loved ones know you’re thinking of them will leave you feeling happier and make your home and inviting one for them to be in.

What self love means

Self love can be simply defined as regard for one’s own well-being and happiness, but it encompasses so much more than that. Self love is an an unconditional feeling of love, appreciation and acceptance for yourself.

First thing you need to do is be aware how you treat yourself. We all talk to ourselves in our minds, but we are not always fully conscious of that voice. Becoming conscious of your inner voice, paying attention to what it’s saying and noticing what you tend to tell yourself most often will help alter your mindset and change the way you view yourself. What do you say when you do something amazing? What do you say when you fail?

Learning to take control of this inner voice is the next step to combating negative thoughts that do not work towards self love. When you notice your inner voice saying things that are not positive, you can train yourself to cancel out these thoughts by repeating positive messages to yourself. Once you pause to realise what you are telling yourself is negative and in turn repeating positive messages over to yourself, in time you will begin believing all the positive things over the negative.

Finally, take the time to do something loving for yourself. Think of all the things you enjoy doing and do them by yourself. Some of these things include reading your favourite book, going for a walk or taking a dance class. They are simple things that you enjoy to allow you to feel relaxed and at peace within yourself. The more you practice acts of self love, the stronger the message you send yourself: “You deserve it”.

5 Green Smoothie Tips

Green smoothies are not only a unique colour but they also offer unique health benefits. Made with leafy greens that are loaded with antioxidants and vitamins, green smoothies are an excellent way to enjoy a delicious drink that satisfies hunger and offers maximum nutrition.

Here are 5 green smoothie tips to get you started on making the perfect drink!

  1. Follow the 60/40 formula. When you’re making your first few green smoothies, don’t just throw things in the blender. Chances are, it’ll taste nasty if you wing it right out of the gate. Use your measuring cups to achieve the tastiest result possible.
  2. Blend in stages to avoid leafy chunks. Chewing your green smoothie is no fun! To get a “smooth” green smoothie experience, blend up your leafy greens and liquid-base first. Then add your remaining fruits and blend again.
  3. Ditch the ice and freeze some fruits. Want your green smoothie to be extra chilly? Freeze your favorite fruits like ripe bananas, grapes, pineapple or berries. This is also a great way to not waste ripe fruits (like those brown bananas on your counter). You can also freeze your leafy greens in a freezer-safe bag.
  4. Use raw natural sweeteners. Add naturally sweet fruits to any smoothie that tastes bitter or a bit too “green.” By sticking with naturally sweet fruits like bananas, mango, apples, pears or pitted date, we avoid artificial sweeteners and processed sugars.
  5. Make smoothies ahead for the perfect fast food. We know life can get crazy busy, especially in the morning. Green smoothies are the healthiest fast food for people who are constantly on the go. You can prep your green smoothies and blend the night before and can store it in your fridge for up to 2 days.

 

Follow these steps and you’ll be on your way to being a green smoothie expert!
