10th December ~ Christmas Song of the Day

It’s Monday and I wanted today’s Christmas Song to be uplifting and dance-friendly. This is a song that I listen to when I dance around and clean the house. And it’s: Feliza Navidad. 

And I also like this version with Celine Dion. She has an amazing voice and I love the Christmas Song’s that I have heard with her.

I wish you a fantastic week, from the bottom of my heart!

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday – 10th December

It’s Monday and time to get motivated! Today’s quotes are one that I know I had in one of my old Calender’s.

“Do What You Can With All You Have, Wherever You Are.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt

I don’t really know what to say about this quote. I think it sums it up well. And I think this one is good not just as a motivation, but also if you think about what you see in the world. If you want to change things that you find to be wrong. Everyone can do something. 

I hope you will have an amazing Monday and a fantastic week!

Love, Nea

Situation Sunday ~ 9th December

It’s December and we are getting closer and closer to Christmas. Every Shop I see have decorated for Christmas and now the stress begins. Christmas gifts, the food, the cleaning of the house and to make this Christmas like everyone else. And that everything has to be perfect. 

I saw this ad from Clas Ohlsson on YouTube and it felt so appropriate that I decided that I needed to share it here whit you. (I am not paid to share this).

Happy Stressfree Christmas, an ad from Clas Ohlsson.

Why do we have to stress? Christmas comes each year either way. And why do you need to have a perfect Christmas? I know that some Christmases in the past that I have stressed. Everything had to be perfect, especially the first Christmases together with my husband. But he doesn’t care. 

I love Christmas, but now I sit down and think about what I find important with Christmas and not what everyone else does. For me, Christmas is about spending time with the people you love and I have promised myself not to stress this year. At least not with Christmas. I think I will have my hands full with packing for my time studying abroad. And I really don’t need to stress over Christmas as well. 

And I hope that you all don’t stress and take care of yourself. What’s the most important thing for you about Christmas? Is it the tree? Is it presents? The company? Just sit own an think about it. Maybe list the important things and take away the not important things. Maybe cut down on the food that is served. Just do what’s right for you.

Today is the Second Advent and when my husband gets home we are going to light the second candle. And probably watch a Christmas movie. And that will be the perfect ending of this week. 

I wish you all a wonderful Sunday!

Love, Nea

9th December ~ Christmas Song of the day

Today’s Christmas song is Underneath the Tree. I love this song because I think it sums up my feelings that I care more about being with my husband then the presents under the tree. Christmas isn’t Christmas to me without him. 

I think Kelly Clarkson Has an amazing singing voice and I like her music. And this song is perfect for my Christmas playlist.

Have an fantastic Sunday!

Love, Nea

Elf ~ Christmas Movie

One of my all-time favourite Christmas Movies is Elf. I watch it at least once every December. And I have already watched it once this year. My husband does not understand why I need to watch this movie every year, and sometimes more than once. So I usually watch it when he isn’t at home. So I can watch it in peace. 

Picture source: IMDB

The movie is about Buddy (Will Ferrell), a human who has been raised on the North pole by an elf. In the movie, he finds out that his not an Elf and he leaves the North Pole to try and find his father Walter (James Caan) in New York, who didn’t even know that Buddy existed. 

Gif from Giphy

The movie is hilarious and it always gives me Christmas feelings. I love how Will Ferrell plays the role of Buddy. It’s funny and believable. And I think I need to see the movie at least one more time before Christmas.

Watch the trailer down below!

If you haven’t watched it jet I can highly recommend it. And if you have seen it, why not watch it again! Curl up in your sofa with some hot chocolate and someone you love. 

8th December ~ Self-Care Saturday

Today I don’t want to share my self-care tips with you. Today I want to share why I do self-care. And why I need to get better at it.

So this last couple of weeks have been hard on me and my mental health. I have been struggling with Statistics. I spent almost all my time studying and after the exam and assignments, I felt like a balloon that lost all its air. And then I had to wait and see if I passed the course or if I had to take the exam again. If you are or have been a Student you know what I am talking about. 

And then I started realixing that it wasent so long left until I would move over 1000 kilometer away from home. From my family. My dogs. My friends. And that got me kind of shaken up.

And on top of this we are going throw my grandmothers house and dividing the heritage between us all. It feels like my grandfather, who passed away in September 2009, and my grandmother is still there. I am just waiting for them to come down from their bedroom and ask what we are doing. I miss them so much.

For me, Self-Care is an important part to stay grounded and to take time to cope with all that is happening around me. It can very hard some days to take care of ourselves. Just brushing our teeth can be hard. But its important. And I have promised myself that I need to get better at taking care of me. 

These last couple of days I have tried to do at least 5 things a day to take care of my self (and brushing my teeth and taking a shower does not count this week). I have done my skin-care rutin, I have taken long walks, I have listened to music and I have taken time to just breath and not feel stressed over what I need to do.

I hope you all also can take some time and spend it on your self-care. You are important! You need to put yourself first sometimes!

Love, Nea
