I got lots of questions about the EMS workout I did today. It was actually my first time 😃 I went to X-shape Fitness.
The EMS works by sending low-frequency electric impulses to contract your muscles while you’re working out for 20 min.
I was a little nervous but it was really fun and I laughed a lot.
Once the buzzes started up, they first felt like pins and needles to me. We went through the reps: squats, lunges, crunches, bicep curls, etc. I’m hooked but it is not a replacement to my usual workout routine. I will go for another try 💪🏽⚡️
The human mind thinks about a squillion thoughts every day. These thoughts can be positive or negative. And who doesn’t have any negative thoughts even the ones that seem positive.
I think it is ok to have negative thoughts in mind for one or two days then I try not to believe these thoughts. While it’s true that things may not have gone the way I always wanted them to, letting negative thinking obliterate your self-confidence won’t help you get back on track.
There’s nothing wrong with choosing to have a positive thought in order to survive. If you can’t get any positive thoughts, then therapy can be a safe place to explore your self talk, internal critic and to consciously rework them into empowering messages.
It is normal to experience ups and downs in our daily lives and negative events that come along can send us spiraling into a bad mood, but learning how to recognize those times when we are starting to feel down can change our feelings to something more positive.
Spread Your Wings, Time To Fly. Make The Leap & Own The Sky!
Remember to surround yourself with things that make you smile or laugh. Stop over-analyzing the situation and focus on your feelings.
I still insist on keeping my goals and dreams in front of me.To make a list of all of the positive things in my life. Being grateful to where I’m now, proud of myself to pass all the obstacles and challenges through my life.
I wished to be the perfect daughter or the perfect girlfriend but I’m not perfect. I’m no baby though and I don’t need anyone to be proud of me. I will follow my dreams no matter how far I will have to go.
Today I decided to smile overcoming negative thinking and to ignore the voice inside my head telling me that I’m not good enough or not worthy of love.
Today I’m also going to gym with my friend for some happy hormones, then catching up over dinner. And tomorrow is another day! XOXO
True magic means for me adding some festive touches to home which make the days all more cheery and memorable all winter long.
Poinsettias still my one most favorite Christmas flowers. For many years now this cheery plant has been brightening up my home.
My day started with a Christmas ride at Urban Ride in Stockholm, then I went with my boyfriend to get a big Xmas brunch at Urban Deli in Södermalm, and we bought some food. Now our home is full of yummy food for my tummy.
Back to home, I wanted to try baking and have a healthy little Christmas. If you love chocolate then you’ll love this recipe.
A delicious healthy treat for dessert or a breakfast.
