Hi guys,

I was really like reading these mindfulness quotes that I have found and I thought that you would enjoy reading them to and would hopefully make you feel better or help you out seeing it is a Monday.

So with out further ado here they are

"In the end, just three things matter:
How well we have lived
How well we have loved
How well we have learned to let go"

Jack Kornfield


Sometimes it helps to just simplify things not everything is complicated or needs to be.

"Be happy in the moment, that's enough.
Each moment is all we need, not more."

Mother Teresa





"One in five people have dandruff.
One in four people have mental health problems. I've had both."

Ruby Wax

I like this one because it highlights how many people actually suffer with some kind of mental illness. I also found it a little bit funny comparing how many people have dandruff , to how many have a mental illness.

"If you can spend a perfectly useless afternoon
in a perfectly useless manner,
you have learned how to live."

Lin Yutang

I think this one is trying to say enjoy yourself, when you can, but I'm not sure I think everyone can take something different from these.

I just thought this would be a nice little post to do and I have found it quite enjoyable to do I am looking forward to seeing your responses to this post ☺



Best wishes
Stacey

Hi Guys Hope you are all doing well,

Well, today I thought I would talk to you about Discrimination and how it needs to stop.

 There are many forms of discrimination and all of them bad, it damages peoples lives sometimes beyond repair (I know that sounds extreme but it's true, it can in some cases). It doesn't matter what it is. It could be race, disability, age, religion, sexuality or many other things. In most cases no one chooses the way they are, some are born that way or because of an illness, disease, an accident or circumstances out of there control.

It seems unfair to judge someone because of something they have no choice over and have to live with for the rest of there lives knowing that people will look at them differently or treat them different, call them names and be bullied for something that is not there fault.

All anyone wants really deep down in is to be accepted by people, that is hard enough on it's own for anyone but for people that are discriminated against it's even harder. It can very lonely when you think no one accepts you or likes you for who you are plus for example if you have some kind of accident and you become disabled, not only do you have to deal with the fact your whole world has changed but the fact that possibly your friends might not all of a sudden be friends or you lose other relationships because of it and it becomes isolating and very lonely, when you need people the most.



That's a lot to deal with all at once, just imagine how you will feel, if that was you? How would you feel? I imagine you would not feel all that good maybe depressed. On the flip side imagine if that was you how do you think that would make you feel if everyone suddenly abandoned you
just when you needed them the most? There person themselves have not changed they are the same person as before just they need more support and help at times, all that has changed is your behaviour towards them. Is that fair?

Judging people for the colour of their skin, Just doesn't seem right we are all made up of the same stuff all have the same parts that make up or bodies. We can all do the same things, achieve the same things. It doesn't matter what colour our skin is we are all the same on the inside. It is just or attitude towards each other, that spoils it and it may only be a few, the majority of people may not care what colour your skin is. I know there is more to this problem then just that and from what I know it has a lot to with what happened in the past and yes we made mistakes in the past maybe it's time to say we are sorry and what happened in the past may not be what us in the present believe. For some it might to deeply imbedded in them for them to except that we are all the same and we all have to live on this world together, so we better make the most of it.


We should all stand together to stop discrimination of any form

Hi there guys,

I have had this thought/ idea floating around in my head a little while now and it involves you guys in some way or another.

So what is this idea, I hear you say? Well I am just getting to that part. My idea was to help spread the word about charities or organisations  that don't always get that much promotion or attention bought to them.

So it can be any charity or organisation that you think is worthy of hopefully (fingers crossed if this works). help or attention brought to there cause.

There are many ways it which you can help big and small, it could be a simple as suggesting a charity or organisation or simply passing the word around or letting bloggers or other influencers know or it could doing a blog post on a certain charity or organisation.

My aim at the moment is just to get a group of people together to post about which ever charities or organisations there feel deserve the extra promotion. I was also thinking that maybe we could swap charities or organisations to keep the help coming as we all have different audience and readers.

I would also like to involve other influencers like I said before but not sure how to yet as I said it is only an idea yet

Please feel free to share ,comment or get in contact about this post and the more the merrier

Hi Peeps,

How are you all today? I was wanted to tell you about this product that I have found recently well within the last couple of months and I have been loving.

So for some reason lately I have been suffering from some dry skin, which I don't normally suffer from. So I had nothing really in my house to help with this little problem I was having until. I popped to one of my closets Boots and bought my self some Garnier Ultimate Blends Body Intense  Repairer Lotion for dry and rough skin.








I have been using it daily and I started to see results very quickly, plus it is non greasy and non sticky which is fab! It is think though which I kind of like, as I find these types of lotions work better, but do take a few minutes or so to sink into your skin deeply, so it just doesn't moisturize the top layer of your skin but through all your skins layers.

It also worked a treat on my skin I would put some before and after pictures in this post, but to be honest with you I did not plan to do a blog post on it so didn't take any before pictures sorry guys and I can't turn back time (which would be so cool if I could). I will though try and remember for next to.

See I am learning as I am going, which is always a good thing and a key thing to blogging!


Best Wishes

Hi guys!!!

Well I thought I would give you a few tips (well 10 to be exactly). These days are lives are becoming more and more stressful for one reason or another and that can change from person to person and from time to time.

  • Exercise
Well exercise wont make your stress disappear, but it will help in reducing the emotional intensity and clear your thoughts and help you deal with your thoughts more calmly.

  • Be Positive
I know I talk about this a lot on my blog, but that is for a good reason it can help with a number of things and stress is one of them. Look at the things we are grateful for and the positive things in life, try concentrating on them more. Look at life in a more glass half full way then a glass half empty way.

  • Accept There Are Some Things You Can't Change
Some situations you just can't change never mind how much you want to. You are much better off spending your energy on the this that you can change and making a difference there. It will be a lot more productive in the end. Nobody likes to waste there time with something that won't change no matter what

  • Have Some 'Me Time'
In the UK we work the longest hours in Europe, this means that we often do not spend enough time doing the things that we enjoy doing. Lets face it we all need time to socialize, relax or exercise. It could be just a couple of nights a week you set aside for 'me time'.

  •  Listen To Soothing Music
Listening to certain kind of music can have a relaxing effect on your body. I would suggest maybe classical music or even nature sounds as these can be very relaxing to and just let your mind drift away. Nature sounds are used in relaxation and meditation music.

  • Laugh
It can be as simple as that to simply laugh can reduce your stress a little. It helps stimulate and release your natural stress response and relieves tension by relaxing your muscles plus in the long term laughter can  improve your immune system and mood. So laugh as much as you want enjoy being with people or laughing at anything you find remotely funny. It will have some really good benefits for you.

  • Light a Candle
I know this seems a bit of an odd one but get the right type of candle and it can work wonders. If you use a soothing candle one with a scent that is know to calm or relax you then you will find the benefits from it. Some such scents are lavender, sandalwood, rose and ylang ylang. Light one of those and let your stress float away or at least some of it. I love the lavender scented ones the best.

So there are 7 (hopefully helpful) tips on how to lessen your stress levels and I know you guys will have lots more ideas to share on how you all deal with stress so please feel free to share them I am sure someone will also find them useful.

 
Thanks for reading
Best Wishes
Stacey
