Letting go of connections

It's a real pain in the ass when your special someone leaves you behind. For whatever reason, we all know that we should move on. I've learn that the hard way, but in reality I'm able to become stronger from letting go. 

At some point of your life, you find this person who makes you feel good on the inside. You want to cherish that person and stay with them forever. But sometimes they can't always be with you either from death, separation, disagreements, and so on. We cry tremendously and start having negative thoughts about why are they gone. To be honest it's a fine case that we can learn as a lesson. 

Tell yourself why the two of you guys have left. It may be painful to know what was the problem, but we can understand our happiness at a greater extent. Learn that cutting all connections with them was a better option because you'll have better moments with others you'll meet in the future. And as you move forward, remember what was it that broke the relationship and apply it next time. Mistakes are meant to be life lessons. 

I remember I was tied down by my friend who I cherish my life with. We were like besties until it went downhill when her personality changed and she ditch me for new friends. I was devastated that I felt so lonely and didn't have anyone. Eventually, I wiped my tears and begin to make relationships with other people who made me laugh. Then, I realize how being tied down by someone who didn't give me complete happiness wouldn't make me happier than now. After realizing this, I felt so free from holding onto someone for so long. I started getting better and able to grasp my smile back. 

Everyone is totally different. I'm not sure what's their situation, but if we could relate then I would say that it's okay to let go of your relationship. As time moves forward, we'll experience better moments with many more people. I know it hurts enough that you want to kill yourself, but don't worry it's only the beginning. Be glad we're humans that we can experience all these emotions. Without it, I wouldn't even talk about this topic with you guys. Stay strong beautiful!

See ya next time! Ciao ^__^

How to be a morning person

You wake up in your cozy pjs, but feeling so lethargic, you decide to take 5 min of snooze. Before you know it, you're already late! I'm sure being a early bird is a first world problem to almost all of us. But don't fret, there are ways to get you out of bed and start your day amazing. Keep reading for a bonus technique. 

1) Preparation 

Start your morning with some preparation. Try laying out your clothes the night before. Organize backpacks, purses, or suitcase to minimize the time for getting ready. You'll be so glad you did. Also, curling hair can be time consuming so why not use heatless methods. They're quick, simple, and less damaging. Just a little prep can keep you at ease and more time for sleep. 

2) Simple pick-me-ups 

Weird factors can trigger the mood of getting out of bed. Body temperature is one of the things that keeps you from leaving the mattress. Feeling warm and comfortable really makes you wanna fall back to sleep. So keep the thermometer at a respectable temperature that's not too cold or too warm. Another thing is seeing the sunrise. When you look at the sun, it's suppose to make you feel energize. If you can, keep your curtains or blinds open to see that morning glory. 

3) Give yourself a reason 

This tip is crucial if you really need a bit of motivation. As you wake up, imagine yourself starting the day and knowing the motive to waking up. It could be a special day, treats, or someone. Whatever the reason, stick with it because this will make you wanna get out of bed in no time. Plus, you can reward yourself for being a morning person. For example, leave a cupcake on the kitchen table so that you can get out of bed and look forward to the cupcake you saved for that morning. 

4) Be on schedule 

Sleep more and more consistently. What this mean is that when you sleep at a proper time continuously, it'll make it easier for to stop snoozing after the alarm clock. Having irregular sleep is not good for the body. If you're in that position then you can fix that problem. Each day, sleep 15 min earlier than the time you get sleepy then wake up 15 min earlier in the morning. Do the same thing each day by sleeping and waking up 15 min earlier than the previous day. Your body will be trained to be on the appropriate schedule. 

5) Special technique 

Here's the ultimate technique that I find so cool, yet helps my bad habit of sleeping after the alarm. You can do this on your free time which is a easy thing. First, set a bunch of alarms at random times and make sure you don't remember each one. Then, go to bed and pretend you're asleep. Once the alarms goes off, turn it off and get out of bed while pretending to do your morning ritual like brushing you're teeth (but you don't have to brush you're teeth). Afterwards, go back to your bed and wait for the next alarm to go off then repeat that same process over until all of your alarms are done. You can do this technique for a couple of days and you'll find improvement with your habit. Trust me, you're going to feel amazing after this. 

P.S. Please thank Steve Pavlina for this cool trick. I give all credit to him and if you're wondering: 

Thank you for reading. I'm sure this post will help so many of you guys. Always remember that everything is up to you. Get your beauty sleep and have a perfect day with a great morning. 

See ya next time! Ciao ^__^

Cool weather, baked goods, holidays, and the fresh scent of autumn leaves are all the great things about Fall. Plus, this season is perfect to sink into a relaxing ritual. Here are some tips to indulge a heartwarming break:

1) Comfy clothes 

Let's start by wearing the most comfortable clothes you can find. Pajamas, loose sweaters, thigh socks, and sweatpants are a go-to favorites. I love wearing my favorite loose sweater with thigh socks in bed. Be sure it's very comforting for you to wear. 

2) Lit candles 

I'm sure everyone's favorite item for Fall are the scented candles that reminded them of baked goods or autumn related scenery. Filling the room with a nice scent makes it easy for you to get in the relaxing mood. There are so many candles available in Bath n' Body that I'm sure there's one you'll definitely love. 

3) Cup of tea 

The cool weather makes it easy for us to digest a good cup of tea. Try green tea since it's beneficial for health and the skin. Of course, you always opt for tea that's full of flavors like black tea, pumpkin spice, chamomile tea, cranberry tea, etc. 

4) Read a book 

Reading during the cool weather with the autumn leaves is very soothing for the heart. Grabbing a nice book and smelling the autumn candles in your room is a perfect break. Do you have any books you're reading this season? 

5) Indulge sweet treats 

Do you like baking? This is a great way to get into the spirit of autumn baking like pumpkin spice muffins, cranberry cookies, or a carrot cake. I think Fall is the time for baking so many goods. 

A few tips to start your autumn ritual. I want to know what you guys would do for this season. Let's make autumn a wonderful season this year.

10 benefits of exercise

The one crucial activity people always neglect is exercise. Seriously, I was a victim of putting it off. But did you know that working out can benefit so many things that you've probably didn't know about? 

1) Increase endorphins 

When you've had a intense workout at the gym, you're already sweating like crazy. And sweat is so good for the body. Your sweat is a sign for feeling better. What I mean is that the Endorphins are kicking in and creating a happy mind. Don't you ever feel refresh after a good workout especially when you weren't motivated to do it? Well thank your endorphins for making that happen. 

2) Beautiful complexion 

I stress this concept a lot lately and yes, exercises does wonders to your skin. I know it may be crazy to say that when you're body is producing all the nasty sweat and oil. But that's one pro because your sweat has the natural oils of your body. Be sure to clean off the sweat immediately since salt is left on the skin. 

3) Releases stress 

Like I said with endorphins, happiness makes you feel good about yourself. And when you feel happy, you have less worries and more freedom for the mind. If you need a boost happiness, make sure you take a little exercise at your gym. 

4) Boost of energy 

When doing cardio, your body is repeatedly storing oxygen to the tissues. Doing this will give you extra energy to go on your day. Plus, it's a great a way to feel motivated when you're having a hard time. 

5) Weight Loss 

The most basic way to drop a couple of pounds are exercise. Now, we all know this simple secret. You may eat healthy, but if you're not getting any exercise then how can you lose weight? Eating and exercising take a part to a healthy body. 

6) Sleep better 

Lazing around the house without a move of a muscle can easily make you less sleepy which disrupts your sleep cycle. Trust me on this. I would lay around my bed and easily take a 3 hr nap then later at night, I wouldn't be able to sleep at a proper time. So, be sure to get your daily jog or some movement. 

7) Build self-confidence 

An easy way to build your own confidence is to just work out. After all the healthy dieting and exercise, you'll look so good in that crop top or swimsuit. You won't be able to worry as much and stop insecurities. Take this as a way to look good and feel good. 

8) Less chance of sickness 

Being sick isn't always fun especially getting a disease. That's why giving yourself a workout can ward off sickness and improve your immune system. This includes Alzheimer's because they can easily damage your healthy cells. 

9) Easy to feel motivated 

Don't you feel sluggish in the morning? And you need to finish all the work there is, but you just don't have the nerve to do it. Don't worry. Exercise helps you get that gut feeling. You'll be glad to finish all chores and grab your dose of exercise.

10) Control anxiety 

Working out is a great way for people who have anxiety disorders. Besides taking a long bath, exercise helps to relieve all worries. You'll find that it'll be easier for you to relax throughout your day. When you need to forget about something, exercise is your answer. 

There are so many more benefits that working out can do for you. We should be glad that this activity exists within us and that it's mainly free. I hope these key points will make you rethink about exercise.

Where do negative comments go?

Has there been a time where someone bullied you? I'm sure at one point everyone has been through that experience. And fairly enough, we probably have bullied someone, too. But we all know that speaking badly about someone can cause them to feel insecure. Once somebody has tried to pull you down, there's no need to take their comment. Most of the negative people won't be in your life forever. 

It's very common for all of us to be pressured and feel insecure by our peers. One comment can be such a critical thing that it can easily break us. But no need to fret. Remind yourself that they have no control over your life except you. You have the power to shape your world because if you don't, how can people accept the real you? People's comments are only words that cut deeper than a blade. 

One tip to keep yourself from being peer pressured is by feeling confident. Learning about your desires, preferences, and style can built freedom and the ability to think without any care. Many people are so insecure about how they look mainly because they can't feel true about themselves since people are so convincing to change their minds. Realize that's their opinion and know that not everyone will love you. You'll have some haters and some followers, but you are in control of your happiness. 

Don't worry, all the bullies you meet throughout your life wouldn't matter. They're only there to try to stop you from being yourself when really they're an example for you to ignore and grow to become a better person. Listen to your heart and do things your way. All the negative comments people been shooting at you, will eventually fade away. You may think these bullies should be gone, but I think they help us achieve who we are even if their criticism isn't constructive.

How's my life been?

Ever since school started (two months ago lol), I've been preoccupied with so much work and studying. But that's pretty normal for any student growing up. I've procrastinated too much lately that it's affecting my sleep. Even so, I have to sleep in class just for to make up for the lost of sleep. But since it's a new season, I'm determined to finish all my workload by the end of this week because that's when all grades are due. 

Next thing that's been a biggie for me is balancing out my blogging time. At first, I knew it could be hectic trying to make the deadline for my posts. Not only does this affect my blog, but I wasn't able to keep updated with my favorite blogs. The only times I'm able to interact with other bloggers are during my weekend which would probably be on Saturday. The problem is not only because I don't have the time, but I have no motivation. You know that feeling when you're a bit lazy and don't seem to wanna finish your task? Well, I'm a victim of that as well. Don't worry, as promised, I'm doing my best to manage my time more wisely for you guys to stay connected with me as much as possible. 

Oh! Another thing I want to share you guys is the shift of season. I can't believe autumn has finally begin that I'm so excited for the colder weather, fun holidays, colored leaves, my birthday, and the scent of baked goods. So ready to kick in with my thigh socks and big sweaters. I mean who can resist this comfy attire? Seriously, I can't wait to fulfill my bucket list knowing it's going to be spectacular. I think I might show you guys my ootd for this fall if you like. But really, do you guys have any plans for autumn? 

Thanks for hearing me out. I haven't had a personal talk like this for awhile. I probably start making these because it really gets off your chest. I hope y'all understand my situation right now and do support me as I'm doing my very best for you guys. If you have any post suggestions for this season, please tell me! I'll try to arrange it. 

See ya next time! Ciao ^__^

Fall colors are in season

Autumn has finally reach its mark which means a wardrobe change. I'm so excited to wear my favorite cardigans, boots, thigh socks, and beanies. The most important aspect about fall is to embrace their cool shades of color. 

Color of the leaves are one example to be part of the autumn season. Orange, brown, dark reds, and black can be your go-to pigmentation. Reflecting the beauty of the leaves as they decay. Try a light brown cardigan with dark red (maroon) pants and a simple black shirt. Be creative mixing n' matching other clothes. Creating an outfit by this theme shows your autumn spirit. 

Remember that colors aren't tolerated to one kind. The palette has a variety of shades that ranges. You can even wear your whole outfit to one kind of color. All pieces of clothing don't have to be the exact same color, so be bold and collect as many shades as you can. The best thing about dressing in the fall is that they have more shades than the rest of the other seasons.

I seriously love autumn not only because you get to wear your cozy outfits, but you can go with the theme. Be as expressive as you can for this season because autumn will eventually go by quick. Also, do enjoy the upcoming holidays and sweet treats. Stay warm loves! 

See ya next time! Ciao ^__^
