ONE PURPLE DAY

  1. There are situations and people you need to get away from in order to breathe. It doesn’t matter what you want to do, it doesn’t even matter what you are expected to do, the only thing that is useful to keep in mind under certain circumstances is that you can’t risk going to the bottom of yourself to save someone else. And if in order to survive you have to let one or more people drift away, never mind. Your life goes away, if the past is there to scream that any attempt has always been in vain, if even the thought of hoping seems ridiculous, then there is no court within you that can condemn you nor are there sins to atone for. but only white flags to be lowered. Nobody saves himself but you don’t have to save everyone, especially those who have the fearful tendency to get into trouble and then pretend that you are the one to solve their life. The moment you understand that for some individuals it makes no sense to lose time, resources and effort, breathing becomes easier. Distance is the only cure, the only remedy.
It is difficult to explain a panic attack. It affects you in various ways, when you least expect it. Feel a hand tighten around your heart, and this accelerates, it would like to run away. The legs start shaking, you think the danger comes from outside but the epicenter is within you. You feel lack of air, you feel you die slowly and then in a hurry. All at once, like when you swallow a pill. This sense of oppression comes and goes. It is difficult to explain because it has so many nuances and everyone lives their own and new ones can be added every time. When fear comes, you don’t always have the courage to face it. It’s like dying, but the point is, it doesn’t, just hold on and survive. Your head starts spinning, you get dizzy, the room gets small yet incredibly deep. Everything seems deafening and dangerous. You close your eyes and the nausea moves inside you. You feel the weight of the sea on your chest and your heart is beating as fast as it can.

SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE

When facing the Simplification Challenge, a good starting point is the decluttering of your home in which, over time, a lot of superfluous things accumulate that clutter not only the external spaces but also the internal ones.

In fact, it is now widely recognized, as shown by various studies on this topic, that the level of order of our home enormously influences our psychophysical well-being. In the long run, clutter creates stress for you because:

 It exposes your mind to overstimulation (visual, tactile, olfactory) which inevitably forces the senses to continuously process unnecessary stimuli

It distracts from the things you need to focus your attention on

It reduces your ability to relax

Constantly signal to your mind that there is still work to be done (remember that objects continually make you silent 
requests: dust me, wash me, iron me, fix me, read me, move me ...)

Increase your anxiety level because you never know how long it will take you to fix everything

Makes you feel guilty and sometimes even embarrassed (for example if you get an unexpected visit)

It invades the free spaces necessary to reflect and find solutions, thus inhibiting creativity and productivity

It wastes your time because it makes it harder to find the things you need quickly

THE POSITIVE ENERGY

There are few times we dedicate a thought to ourselves.

And I want to specify that it is a wrong thing; we should always give ourselves time and concern!

Precisely for this reason, it is important to have a relationship with our inner self and to get in touch with our compass.

They will always know how to help you and will have the answer ready for any eventuality!


What is the inner compass? And what is it for?
The inner compass allows you to perceive the difference between good and evil, through sensations. There are those who feel them in their stomachs, still others in their hearts.

It helps us make decisions, distinguishing the negative and positive sides of something or someone.

At best, it guides us in all our actions.

How do we get in touch with our inner compass?
☞︎︎︎ To allow our inner compass to contact us, it is important to start accepting our every thought and every feeling we experience!

Why should we care about ourselves?

If we don't worry about ourselves, we will never feel compelled to ask ourselves how we are doing.

Remember that we are not our enemies, we must be a figure present in our life. We need ourselves more than anyone else!

Why is it important to know our state of mind?

Our state of mind is a fundamental clue to understand our emotions while carrying out a certain action.

Our emotionality constantly responds to external stimuli and therefore varies continuously.

So, if we don't listen to our emotions, we will never begin to accept ourselves and understand why we sometimes feel bad.
Listening to our feelings and understanding the message they are trying to send us is difficult.

But fortunately it is possible to simplify the work by introducing some questions in our daily life!

What is the first question to ask us?
Since we need to monitor our state of mind, first, let's start asking ourselves, "How am I feeling right now?"

It will help you understand which emotion you need to focus on and work harder on.

How do we "work" on an emotion?
You can start "working" on an emotion, starting to understand what you like and dislike, to do.

To make things even easier for you, start making a mental or written list!
Example :
I like reading.
But I don't like reading non-Romance books.
I like painting.
But I don't like to paint on canvas, I prefer to paint on a watercolor sketchbook.

How do we feel good and accept ourselves?
By starting to talk to yourself and creating real conversations with your inner compass.

Trying to understand what we really like to do through the emotions we feel while carrying out a certain action.
If you feel uncomfortable, or can't talk to yourself mentally. Write it all down on a piece of paper!
Example:
What am I doing?
- "I'm reading a yellow book"
How do I feel right now?
- "Uncomfortable."
Why do I feel uncomfortable?
- "This is the first time I've read a detective story and I don't like the genre very much. But I feel compelled to continue reading."
Why do I keep reading the book if I don't like it? Why do I feel compelled to "keep reading"?
- "Because I'm used to finishing a book. I don't like to hang things up."
What can I do to feel better and help me?
- "Maybe I could start reading another book of a kind that I frequent more and at the same time continue reading the book I am currently reading. In order to make the reading a little lighter and more interesting."
What if it doesn't work?
- "I could read a book review on the internet and just give up reading."

Understanding what we really like to do is important!

Start comparing yourself to help yourself.

WALKING IN THE WOODS

Walking in the woods is a fantastic thing, it recharges you, it makes you feel your true nature, it gives you life again. We belong to nature and not to concrete. But we forgot about our green heart, which is why we are all sick now. The forest is our home. An environment made up of meadows, shrubs, trees, wetlands or not, welcomed primitive man. Being in nature, crossing the woods, was useful for our ancestors to get food. A primary need fixed in our genome. Despite a sedentary lifestyle and a safe home, our body, our immune system, invites us to be in nature, to take a walk in the woods. Our body knows that all of this makes us feel good.
Terpenes, this is the secret of the forest. Terpenes are chemical molecules that plants produce to communicate with other plants. There are about 40,000 of them. They use them to defend themselves from parasite attacks, to send odorous messages. Through the terpenes the forest speaks the language of smells. And our body buys it up to strengthen the immune system. And not only. Our mood improves, we move away from any states of depression and we know, if our mood is high, our immune system also works better. The terpenes in the air come from the leaves and needles of the trees and again from the bark and trunk. They are released from shrubs, grasses and undergrowth bushes. And again from mushrooms, mosses and ferns. Everything in a forest emanates terpenes, precious and incredible biomolecules that we assimilate through the skin and through breathing, therefore from the lungs.

Now you know. So you stay in the woods for a few more minutes. Are you OK. Fill your lungs with air. Breathe and this time really, breathe and choose to feed yourself with a dose of air full of what makes you feel good. Your immune system reads, decodes and copes with any external attack just like a tree would because it is in the woods that you have your roots. Home.
All fables take place in the woods, the best known and the individual ones, of each of us. Those who choose to walk in the woods want to live their own fairy tale, looking for that inner freedom that makes them the master of their own life and dreaming of acting like trees, birds and deer, which in their simplicity live above everything. When you go deep into the woods you leave behind the noises of civilization. Venturing completely alone is a unique experience that we can offer ourselves, with that mixture of fear and a state of alert that are mixed with the pleasure of daring to challenge the atavistic fears that we carry within us since we were children. Going deeper and deeper into the trees, and closing your eyes, you can hear the heartbeat of the forest play in unison with your own.
Human beings become inhumane when they turn away from nature. They become numb. They become sad and bored. Living in concrete houses has killed the energy of human beings. They have shelter but no longer feel any joy. They are trapped in sterile cages and become sterile. Nature is destroyed and man does not understand that destroying it means destroying himself.

HOUSEWORKS

mujer-trabajo-en-casa.jpg
the work that women do at 
home is not valued. 
every woman has to arrange,
 tidy up, do laundry and cook 
for her family, besides the work
 she does outside the home.
 but this work at home is often
 done only by the mother. 
children do not even contribute 
because they study and think 
that this housework should be 
done by their mother. 
the father cares and never 
contributes. we are in 2019 
and in most of the European 
states and in America and in the
 rest of the world women are
L obliged to manage the house 
and do all these things for 
women. so often they have no 
time for themselves and neglect 
their passions. 
become frustrated and unhappy.
 husbands and children don't care
 if a mother is sick.
 they spend all their time on 
social media and don't care if 
their mother is unhappy.
 often women do not even have 
friends or friends and here 
they keep everything inside 
themselves and the disease is
 neglected. until they decide 
to leave suddenly and disappear 
or throw themselves into some risky 
extramarital affair. 
women living in big cities can turn 
to some association that helps them. 
but women living in small towns 
have no help.
