Few things that I have learned this past year is that life can be short!! so here are my few tips to enjoy it as much as possible 🙂 Happiness has also been linked to better decision-making and improved creativity. So, rather than success being the key to happiness, research shows that happiness could in fact be the key to success.
1 – It starts with you!!
Happiness often comes from within. All humans have a tendency to ruminate more on bad experiences than positive ones. So make sure you are over-learning from the dangerous or hurtful situations we encounter through life (bullying, trauma, betrayal).
2- Be your friend!
Just as important as it is to be kind to others, it’s equally important to practice kindness towards yourself. This is the power of acceptance and growth. Being kind to yourself promotes happiness and confidence, how you treat yourself sets the tone for how others will treat you.
3- Take a deep breath
Deep breaths are more efficient: they allow your body to fully exchange incoming oxygen with outgoing carbon dioxide. They have also been shown to slow the heartbeat, lower or stabilize blood pressure and lower stress. To experience deep breathing, find a comfortable place to sit or lie down.
4- Laughter is good for your health
When you start to laugh, it doesn’t just lighten your load mentally, it actually induces physical changes in your body. Laughter can: Stimulate many organs. Laughter enhances your intake of oxygen-rich air, stimulates your heart, lungs and muscles, and increases the endorphins that are released by your brain.
5- Good Mood foods
If you are presently piling plenty of colourful plants on your plate, you are already at a better mood advantage. Research tells us that plant-based diets are associated with healthier mood states. The more fruits and vegetables people eat, the happier, less depressed, and more satisfied they are with their lives.
6- Surround yourself with positivity
Positivity and happiness is contagious., the most successful people are those who have a happy, healthy and positive approach to life., they’ll inspire you – and you’ll inspire them right back. …Being good is good for the soul. …
7- Be kind
Helping others feels good. Studies have found that acts of kindness are linked to increased feelings of wellbeing. It helps keep things in perspective and It helps to make the world a happier place – one act of kindness can often lead to more!
8 – Workout
When you exercise, it increases endorphins, dopamine, adrenaline and endocannabinoid — these are all brain chemicals associated with feeling happy, feeling confident, feeling capable, feeling less anxiety and stress and even less physical pain.
I know it’s easy to say, but what about trying to be happier?? happiness is like a muscle more you train it stronger it becomes !!!
Firstly what is Cannabinoids?
Better known as CBD, it is one of over 100 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis or marijuana plant, Cannabis sativa Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and causes the sensation of getting “high” that’s often associated with marijuana.
Does CBD will get you high?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid, a type of natural compound found in cannabis and hemp. … CBD doesn’t cause a high like THC. CBD does have some positive health benefits. If you‘re seeking out CBD as a means to get high, you won’t experience that.
What are the positive health benefits??
Anxiety and stress disorder, are the most common mental health disorder worldwide, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). For those living with anxiety, finding a safe method for managing symptoms is a critical concern.
Enter cannabidiol, better known as CBD. CBD has recently captured the spotlight as an alternative or complementary treatment for anxiety.
A common cause of insomnia is anxiety and stress. CBD helps to regulate cortisol, a stress hormone, which has a significant impact on non-REM sleep cycles. A large case series review found that CBD is beneficial for anxiety-related disorders and an increase in sleep quality.
CBD can effectively manage pain, without causing any kind of adverse or undesirable side effects. In fact, it is more so when compared to most prescription drugs.
CBD not only helps suppress inflammation in the body, which can promote a healthier environment for hair to grow on the scalp, but is also suspected to reach sebaceous glands—which secrete oil (a.k.a. sebum) to lubricate hair—in hair follicles where it can provide therapeutic benefits.
Benefits to skin also include powerful antioxidants, improved sleep, and anti-inflammatory agents that can help treat conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, as well as reduce acne. “CBD oil is a great option for all skin types,” if you have skin problem Dairy might be the first reason!
CBD oil is an increasingly popular cannabis product that is often marketed for weight loss. However, current research does not show a clear effect on weight. Though some studies indicate that CBD may boost metabolism while reducing body fat and appetite, others show an increase in appetite.
CBD won’t get your pet “high”.Unlike THC, the main psychoactive compound in marijuana, CBD is completely non psychoactive and safe to be used on pets. … In fact, the CBDfound in cannabis pet supplements is usually sourced from hemp, a variety of cannabis that naturally contains extremely low concentrations of THC.
I personally had problems to sleep since forever and now that I am taking CBD it takes me maximum 30 mins to fall asleep, my skin is glowing and my pain due to workouts are nearly non existent, I definitely find my alternative recipe to an healthy and happy life!!
WHAT IS IT? Unlike normal toothpaste, vegan toothpaste is only made from the finest natural ingredients and doesn’t include any animal by-products. … Also known as cruelty free, these toothpastes contains nothing but natural and organic ingredients that still leave your teeth clean and shiny without the bad chemicals.
WHY SHOULD WE USE IT? helping the environment is not the only reason why we should use organic items. Studies indicate that individuals who primarily use all natural products have fewer food allergies or rashes and are healthier than those who are not.
Do you also know…
Essential oils like mint or menthol provides an antibacterial effect that promote greater dental hygiene.
We often worry that organic products don’t work as well as mainstream ones. The fact is, in many cases the opposite is true. For example, the wonderful natural ingredients found in organic toothpaste can freshen the breath and keep it that way for hours.
I have been trying Himalaya botanique is a manufacturer of vegan 🌱 toothpaste, since I found out I am a big fan as they are:
@bootsuk the sales started with 50% off until 5th May 2020, don’t think twice and run 🏃♀️ at @bootsuk or get a delivery 📦
These are my first pair of vegan high ankle flat 🌱 shoes . I then started to wonder what types of vegan leather as out there. Do you know all of the vegan 🌱 types of leather? if not enjoy below…..
A vegan lifestyle is becoming really popular, due to the concerns over both animal welfare and climate change.
A lot of vegans, on top of not eating any animal products, also do not wear any clothing from an animal. Leather, made from animal is not a vegan. Some non-vegans also don’t use leather, because of the to chemicals used in tanning and dyeing.
Leather made of Paper:
Yes, that’s right, paper. Speciality papers like washi from Japan is a paper made from the bark of the Kozo tree, often used in handbags. The Kozo is a fast-growing and relatively sustainable tree, and washi can be both soft and flexible. It can also be laminated to make it waterproof.
Polyurethane treated fabric
The most popular fake leather is to apply a polyurethane coating to a base material such as polyester, nylon or cotton. The newly laminated surface can be treated, usually by running a textured roller over it, to emulate the grain of animal leather. It’s a Good quality flexible and durable, and it is inexpensive to make.
Leather made from Rubber
Synthetic rubber is made from petroleum products and the manufacture of both synthetic and natural rubber requires the use of chemicals. However, some recycled rubber, such as old inner tubes, can be used to make products like bags and luggage. Recycling rubber prevents it from clogging up landfills, and the material is very durable and naturally water-resistant.
Leather made from rocks (Sewable Slate)
This leather is ultra-flexible, weather-resistant and can be cut and sewn like cloth. Over time, the slate becomes naturally worn to give the impression of aged leather. It is expensive to make, so is best used for items like bags, belts and luggage.
leather made from plant
Muskin, Mylo (from mushroom 🍄) Piñatex (made from pineapple 🍍) Orange 🍊 peels, banana 🍌 skins, apples 🍎 , soy, coconut 🥥 and even coffee ☕️ grounds have also been turned into leathers.
Pleather is a leather made from plants , the advantage is that they completely decompose and in most cases without leaving any chemicals or plastic microbeads behind. And due to the difficulty of working with this material, it can’t be use for However, most of the plant leathers are large quantities and can be expensive to produce.
Firstly what is it?
Sustainable fashion is a movement and process of fostering change to fashion products and the fashion system towards greater ecological integrity and social justice. Sustainable fashion concerns more than addressing fashion textiles or products. It comprises addressing the whole system of fashion, including design, production, retail, and purchasing. It covers a range of issues such as working conditions, exploitation, fair trade, sustainable production, the environment, and animal welfare.
Ethical fashion is important, because it is our social and environmental responsibility and if we don’t act now, it may be too late in the future. … Ethical fashion means that there should be clear standards and ethical norms in the garment manufacturing process. It means transparency, security, trust.
I am 100% concerned by this matter as a fashion addict. Finding the appropriate outfit made in a ethical way is just a nightmare and sometimes impossible but why? Why should we compromise our style or play for overpriced items because we want to do good to our planet 🪐? Obviously the companies understand that it’s becoming a business, which is true but not only “la crème de la crème” wants to do some good, middle class people can also be ethical, what I mean by that is why is it so expensive all the time? I unfortunately believe that too many companies are surfing on the wave of the ethicality!
That being said I will share with you few links for a full day wearing ethical fashion at a reasonable price (fitness mood):

Don’t you think that thinking of what the way you are acting will help us feeling better about you life? Thinking quality instead of quantity?
Positive thinking will bring positivity in your life, and karma is a bitch … think about it …
What do we know about hemp?

Hemp is used to make a variety of commercial and industrial products, including rope, textiles, clothing, shoes, food, paper, bioplastics, insulation, and biofuel.

LED Light Therapy
LED (light-emitting-diodes), as developed by NASA, is a semi-conductor light source, which releases energy to produce varying light colours. In LED light therapy, this energy-produced light penetrates light into deeper layers of the skin, which conventional light sources cannot reach.
The red LED light stimulates the fibroblasts that produce collagen, which in turn can help the skin’s youthful appearance. With the application of our anti-ageing creams or serums, the red light helps penetrate then product into deeper layers of the skin, whilst also helping improve blood circulation, expression lines and regenerating cell connections.
Blue LED light targets bacterial sources, which resides underneath the skin’s surface and contributes to the causes of acne. The light assists in the development of oxygen radicals, which help destroy this bacteria, without causing harm to healthy skin.
Green LED light helps reduce pigmentation, cooling the skin, soothing the skin, improves epidermal hyper pigmentation, will help evening skin tone, and helps with redness.
