Staying positive

Standard

Being positive is what I am,

unfortunately the virus thought the same.

I tested positive for the virus after I fell ill starting with a massive headache.

Fever came second and then I started the cough.

Even though I had been extremely careful, never went out, had all shopping on line delivered, only walked to work and back, wearing masks, washing hands, keeping my distance always.

Still I got it, it seems to be so easy to get infected.

————————————————————-

My isolation period is over now and I am feeling better.

I am lucky and I am super grateful that I could stay home and deal with all symptoms myself and concentrate on getting better.

Tiredness/ feeling exhausted and losing the sense of taste and concentration is what is left.

It does zap the life out of you and it will take time to get back to normal.

I can’t concentrate on a good book, but rather sleep. I sleep more than ever.

 

Eating is a chore as everything tastes rubbish.

Even chocolate isn’t appealing.

I am a fighter and I will conquer this too!

– for the sake of chocolate 🙂

 

 

The NHS has been amazing I can only give them praise.

I ordered the test online, it was delivered the next day , done and posted back.

The result came via email the day after.

The NHS sent me texts with clear instructions of isolation dates continuously.

They kept phoning throughout my isolation period to check how I am doing and to give advice on questions I have.

 

Thank you NHS for helping me through this difficult period.

I urge everyone to be extremely careful.

Wash hands, stay away from people and stay safe.

Keep the virtual love and hugs going – 

they are more needed than ever.

Hello all furry friends, and all blog readers,

I needed to update you all quickly, while the computer is on.

After a long time of finding all different places to rest and sleep,

like

a tight cardboard box

 Sometimes a bigger one….

the lap of course….

my food giver finally got the message…..

She ordered a soft basket bed for me to sleep in:

I can’t wait until it will be delivered.

As it is very often rainy, I prefer to be indoors.

Don’t get me wrong, I am out and about when it is dry,

but the British Summer is true to its’ reputation. Wet and windy.

So I can snuggle into my new bed and enjoy my naps, rest and sleep.

Purrrrrfect

The ABC of Genuine Happiness

S – Smile. Sleep. Simplicity

Oh I love smiling….

and could talk all day about it but here some of my favourites smile quotes:

Smile – It’s the second best you can do with your lips.

Smiling is my favourite exercise.

A smile is something you can’t give away; it always comes back to you.

It takes a lot of work from the face to let out a smile, but just think what good smiling can bring to the most important muscle of the body… the heart.

A smile is an inexpensive way to change your looks.  Charles Gordy

Everyone smiles in the same language.

People seldom notice old clothes if you wear a big smile.  Lee Mildon

Wear a smile – one size fits all.

You’re never fully dressed without a smile.  Martin Charnin

A smile can brighten the darkest day.

Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. Mother Teresa

Simplicity

simple

“Life gets better when you SIMPLIFY !!!!!!! Remove the clutter, excess, unnecessary and everything that does not serve you well; and you will feel better. Things were meant to serve us, but these days it seems more that we serve things.

How about de-cluttering your mind?

Get rid of negative, unpleasant thoughts; make room for positive, cheerful thoughts.

Get rid of unwanted memories; make room for new memories.

Get rid of destructive, angry thoughts; make room for loving, happy thoughts.

It’ll feel as good within yourself as tidying your closet.


… to be continued ….

Wishing you  a surprising and super day!

A good Sleep

Standard

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As we all know a good sleep is vital for a healthy body and mind. We all need between 6 and 8 hours sleep to regenerate and feel focussed and fresh in the morning.

 

As my sleep seemed to get worse I started to google and found good tips which I like to share:
According to the National Sleep Foundation, these nine things might be keeping you up at night 🙂
  • Pillows 70% impact
  • Bedroom Temperature 69% impact
  • Bedroom darkness 57% impact
  • Sheets 53% impact
  • Partner snoring 51% impact
  • Allergies 37% impact
  • Children sharing your bed 28% impact
  • Pets sharing your bed 27% impact
  • Partner movement 27% impact

Are you getting a good sleep?

 

 

So to have my good sleep I did buy a new mattress, new pillow and will get darker curtains. Well, I must say the mattress already worked wonders and my backache is gone. It is wonderful. Certainly worth the investment.

Off course there is more to a good sleep than just a new mattress ( but it helps), so I put a couple of links below!
