Morning and Night Routine

So I thought I would slide in a few lifestyle posts into my blog – Well I’m not really good at these sort of things because I don’t do much but here goes nothing.

Cleansing

So I wont talk in detail about my cleansing routine as I do have a dedicated post coming up soon focused around this topic. Every morning and night I tone and cream my face, after washing with water and a hot flannel.

Humidifying

So recently I bought a humidifier/aroma diffuser from Muji and I pretty much use it every day. Every morning before I meditate, I drop in either a berry or citrus scented oil into my diffuser and set it for 30 minutes. This refreshes and wakens my mind before dragging myself our of bed for the work routine. I love how light and fluffy it is and how it gets through my room with ease – I don’t use incense pods or sticks often as I tend to find the smoke lingers in one certain area and chokes me. I’m a sensitive soul. And then every evening I use a Vanilla Chai oil to calm myself ready for my night meditation.

Meditation

This is a recent thing to my daily routine but it’s working its wonders already. I use the app calm to meditate. I do walking meditation, sleep meditation, breathing techniques, etc. I really love this app and it doesn’t cost much on a monthly basis – £9.99 is a good price in my book for what the app has to offer. Before anyone asks, I have tried researching online for meditations and all but i can never get one that is quite right – if anyone has any free options that are good for helping stress and insomnia then comment it bellow. One of my favourite features of the app are the sleep stories. When I was younger, my brother and I used to listen to cassette stories and fables to help us sleep. Now being what everyone believes is an adult, I do find it hard to sleep at night –  I would prefer to stay up for 52 hours until I pass out involuntarily, then sleep. But before I digress into my sleep habits and life story, we will move on.

Lighting

I only mention this because it has to be the right lighting. I use my side lamp most of the day or just fairy lights on my window to light my room first thing in the morning or just before I sleep. Otherwise, sleep is a myth to me haha.

Dental Things

Yeah this sounds like an obvious thing but I have to brush my teeth 2 times a day. If I don’t it stresses me out.

I told you guys i wasn’t very good with these things, I’m not sure what else I do , even if i do it every day. I hope you enjoy this post and if I remember anything else I’ll update this.

The Unspoken Reality

Hi guys,

This post is pretty randomly placed – I’ve scheduled a few to plip up through the coming days but I’ve decided to share something for you guys. So a good friend of mine has recently started up a new blog that I think you should all check out. She has decided to remain anonymous with this, which is fine – I mean the main reason this blog is called elizalilysmiles is because it isn’t my name and I didn’t want people to know about it.

She has told me she wants to write about things that not many people want to talk about on a regular basis – some things funny, some things sad, and some things that just make you wanna tear your eyes out.

She is an insanely creative person and I’m excited to share this with you all. I’ve known her for years now and I’ve been waiting for her to do this for ages.

So here is the link to her first post and she hasn’t started off lightly – discussing autism and ADHD from the perspective of a sibling to someone who has it.

Enjoy guys and shower her with some love. She is always willing to get creative criticism and pointers here and there.
