Baiser Beauty Blog - How to get a good night's sleep.

Everyone can use a little help falling asleep at night. Having a good sleep improves heart and immune system health, betters the mood, even a longer life. And hey, you just feel so much better after a good night's sleep. But chances are, you're not getting it, so here are some simple tips to make you sleep like an angel.

CREATE A SLEEP SCHEDULE
If you do only one thing to improve your sleep, this is it, same bedtime and wake up time, even on the weekends helps to regulate your body's clock and could help you fall asleep and stay asleep for the night. A regular sleep routine keeps your biological clock steady so you rest better. Exposure to a regular pattern of light and dark helps, so stay in sync by opening the blinds or going outside right after you wake up.

MAKE A SLEEP RITUAL
Creating a relaxing routine right before bedtime conducted away from bright lights helps separate your sleep time from activities that can cause excitement, stress or anxiety which can make it more difficult to fall asleep, get sound and deep sleep or remain asleep.

DARKNIGHT
Think of darkness as nature’s sleeping pill, cueing your body to crank out melatonin, the hormone that helps you wind down. Turning down the lights ahead of your bedtime ramps up melatonin production, so you can successfully doze off.

NO POWER NAPS
Power napping may help you get through the day, but if you find that you can't fall asleep at bedtime, eliminating even short catnaps may help.

CARDIO
Vigorous exercise is best, but even light exercise is better than no activity. Exercise at any time of day, but not at the expense of your sleep. 30 minutes of vigorous aerobic exercise keeps your body temperature elevated for about 4 hours, inhibiting sleep. When your body begins to cool down, however, it signals your brain to release sleep-inducing melatonin

FENG SHUI YOUR ROOM
A few drops of lavender, rose or frankincense essential oil on the soles of your feet can be an enormously relaxing nighttime ritual. Lighting a few lavender candles in your bedroom can also do the trick, blanketing your space in fragrance.
Design your sleep environment to establish the conditions you need for sleep. Your bedroom should be cool, free from any noise that can disturb your sleep and free from any light.

GOOD MATTRESS AND GOOD PILLOWS ARE IT
Make sure your mattress is comfortable and supportive. The one you have been using for years may have exceeded its life expectancy – about 9 or 10 years for most good quality mattresses. Have comfortable pillows and make the room attractive and inviting for sleep but also free of allergens that might affect you and objects that might cause you to slip or fall if you have to get up.

NO CAFFEINE
That means coffee, tea, and cola. Caffeine is a stimulant that stays in your system for about 8 hours, so if you have a cappuccino after dinner, come bedtime, it'll either prevent your brain from entering deep sleep or stop you from falling asleep altogether.

LET ENERGY CIRCULATE
If you live in a noisy neighborhood or can’t leave a window slightly open for any reason, a small fan can help keep air circulating in your space. You don’t need to sleep with it on (though you certainly can), but airing out your bedroom each night creates a fresh space for sleep.

BREATHE
breathing exercises encourages the fast removal of carbon dioxide which will allow us to fall asleep faster and even help you deal with anxiety and stress in your life.

HOW TO FEEL AND LOOK BEAUTIFUL

BEAUTYBaiser Beauty
Baiser Wellness Blog - How to feel and look beautiful

Many say beauty comes from within, but  whether you purposefully disagree with beauty ideals or are the first to jump on the latest trend, most of us spend a lot of time focused on our own external appearance with the goal of looking more “beautiful.” But what does it really mean to be beautiful?  And does pampering and altering our physical appearance really make us any more beautiful in the end?

The standards of female beauty have become progressively more unrealistic and unattainable. We need full-time hairdressers, heavy make up, physical trainers, and dietitians just to attempt to keep up.

The truth is that most of us aren’t “beautiful” by the current media standards of beauty. And even models and actresses are outed as less than perfect when they are caught in their natural state. Maintaining that standard of perfection must be exhausting and humiliating.

Even though we know this standard of beauty is unrealistic and unattainable, most of us spend far too much time, emotional energy, and money, attempting to keep up. It doesn’t matter whether you are young with enviable skin, great body or perfect abs,  you probably focus far more on your perceived flaws than you do on any aspect of your true beauty.

If beauty really is about happiness, confidence and self-love – wouldn’t our “beautifying” time be better spent doing things that make us happy, boost our confidence and make us love ourselves more? Could we just walk away from all the fake standards of “beauty” and focus on the little things that do matter like everything that makes us joyful?

With practice, this can be done! For those of us in the 99% who will never make in the pages of a magazine, we can feel absolutely beautiful by shifting our actions and attitude.

Here are 10 simple but powerful ways to feel Beautiful.

1. Remember the power of positive thinking: Positive Thinking is an emotional and mental attitude which consists in focusing on the bright side of our life. We need to realized that our thoughts good or bad shape our reality, so we may want to focus on the positive rather than the negative. Every experience and person we manifest into our lives is there to teach us something wonderful, that will shape us later in the humans that we are meant to be.

2. Smile therapy. It’s contagious! Others will want to be with you. You will be helping others feel good. When we smile, it can help us look better, less tired, less worn down and if you try, even when it’s difficult to smile when you are not feeling good, there is a chance it might improve, affect or change the way you are feeling.

3. Be amazed by the uniqueness and perfection of your body. No matter your size, shape, or age, your body is a miraculous temple and you were created unique and special just the way you are.

4. Appreciate your flaws. You are part of the Great Community of Flawed People. Welcome to the club. So embrace your flaws as a reminder of your connection to humanity. Flawed is the new perfect.

5. Kind people are beautiful. A kind person is exquisite in their beauty. It shines from them like a beacon of hope and peace.

6. Practice compassion. If helps if we carry ourselves with compassion, towards us and everyone around us. Remember everyone is doing the best they can from their level of consciousness.

7. Discover your passion. Do you have a hobby?  If you do, make some time out of your schedule to practicing, and getting better at it.  If you don’t have a passion or hobby – or aren’t sure what you want to do yet, try anything and everything because you’ll find what it is that you DON’T like – which will get you closer to finding out what it is that you do.

8. Water is cleansing energy. Whether you want to feel beautiful or look beautiful, H2O can help you  jump to start your weight loss program, bring radiance back to your skin, greatly improve your digestion and vitality and even cleanses the energy of your negative thoughts. Water must be your BFF when it comes to looking and felling beautiful.

9. Make up is a choice. Don’t fall into the fake ways to look “beautiful” by hiding who you truly are. We are on an era where women want to be accepted and we have to start by accepting ourselves as we are, imperfect, unique and beautiful. Choose clean makeup that will enhance your true natural beauty.

10. Create beauty around you. Let your surroundings reflect the beauty inside of you. Remove anything in your life that won’t resonate with love and beauty. Clean your house, add flowers. Let your home be filled with your beauty and start manifesting everything that you want to be.

Remember one thing. If we teach our brain to constantly focus on the positive, our reality will be transformed into the most beautiful experience.

Enjoy being beautiful!

THE POWER OF MANIFESTATION

HEALTHY LIVINGBaiser Beauty
Baiser Wellness Blog - The Power Of Manifestation

Everyone has desires and dreams they wish for. Some wishes are common such as money, a love, or simply enough food to feed our family. Others will be more specific such as finding a lost wallet or car keys. Regardless of what the wish is we are all looking for the things that will make our lives better. Some individuals will spend their entire life wishing for their dreams to come true without ever seeing any results, while others (a select few) are able to pull their desires into their reality and manifest them.

Manifestation is a way of working with the Universe, God, or whatever you perceive the force or energy that connects all things to be. Manifestation is a very effective tool when done correctly. Unfortunately, many people think that manifestation is as simple as saying, “Universe, I need $5000 by next week,” and then waiting around for the check to arrive. Needless to say, the results of presenting your desire in this manner will not be very promising.

Creating a vision board is a fun, tangible, and powerful way to say “Yes please!” to the abundance you’d like to receive (and deserve) in your life:

You know how when you get a new car, you see that particular make and model everywhere you go? That’s because you have put your attention on something specific, and are unconsciously scanning the world for items that match it. It’s not that those cars were never there; it’s simply that you never noticed them before.

When you continue to give your attention to the things your want, you attract those things into your life. But be careful! The Universe responds with both the positive and the negative! If you look for reasons to support why you are having a terrible day, you’ll keep attracting annoyances to prove you right! The more you surround yourself with the things you want to experience, the more you’ll actually get to experience those things in your life.

The more aligned you are with your spiritual purpose in life, the more powerfully you can manifest. Also, the more deliberately you deny your spiritual purpose, the more powerfully you can manifest. Denying your spiritual purpose draws energy out of goodness. Aligning with your spiritual purpose nurtures goodness and empowers it in the world. You have the choice of your energy source. To the wise, it only makes sense to manifest with the power of goodness, instead of against the power of goodness, because as you diminish goodness your life grows cold, dark, and empty, no matter what you manifest.

CREATING A VISION BOARD TO MANIFEST YOUR DESIRES

Creating a vision board is a simple and fun activity. We recommend getting together with a few friends or your entire family to have a vision board party.

When you build a vision board with others, you can feed off each other’s ideas and positive energy. It is a great way to spend an afternoon or evening together.

Here are some simple steps to help you create your dream vision board.

Step 1: Connect to your vision

Meditate, daydream, or journal about all the things you want to be, do, or have, and don’t forget to consider the multiple dimensions of your life as well. Imagine your ideal career, relationship, house, car, community, body, and so on. The more specific you can be, the better! You want to be in a good headspace when you sit down to make your vision board, so lighting some candles and playing some good music can also help to set the scene.

Step 2: Gather Your Materials

Sometimes it’s fun to flip through magazines and cut out images and words that call to you. If you go this route, take into consideration what kinds of magazines you have laying around. 

Step 3: Display It

Once you’ve made your vision board, it’s important to hang it in view—maybe on the inside of your closet door or on your refrigerator. Don’t feel like you need to stare at it 24/7, but it does need to appear in a place where you will encounter it every day. If you make it and put it under your bed, you’re likely to forget about it. But keep it in your consciousness, and you’re sure to see results much more quickly.

Step 4: Let the Universe Do Its Thing

Once you’ve clarified your vision and made your vision board, your job is simply to look at it often, and trust that the Universe will provide you with the opportunities to manifest each and every thing you truly desire. Hold these images in your awareness on a regular basis, and say “Yes!” when opportunities present themselves to make your dreams come to life.

In fact, it’s recommended that you create a completely new vision board every 6 to 12 months to be sure it’s current, inspiring, and up-to-date with your values and priorities.

finally it is important to remember these seven principles when trying to create a purpose life and manifest our dreams and desires:

The seven principles are:

1. See the universe as an extension of yourself

2. Evolve through the mirror of relationship

3. Understand that intention has infinite organizing power

4. Free yourself from emotional turbulence

5. Harness the masculine and the feminine in your own being

6. Never ignore a coincidence

7. Always stay grounded and centered in yourself.

CLEAN BEAUTY IS THE FUTURE

Make up without chemicals can change your life.

Chemicals and toxins are not just in your food – they are also widely used in your favorite personal care products such as makeup, deodorant, mouthwash, toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner.

Our skin absorbs 60% of any topical product we use and more than 10,000 ingredients are allowed for use in our personal care items. Many of these ingredients are hazardous to our health but they are used in everything from makeup to facial moisturizer and nail polish remover! It’s amazing that the average woman wears nearly 515 chemicals a day and will eat nearly 4 pounds of lipstick in her lifetime. Make sure your lipstick does NOT contain lead or any chemicals.

That’s why organic make up is the better.

Organic makeup claims mostly the absence of synthetic dyes, allergens, parabens, preservatives…which makes these products a good alternative for very sensitive skin and all skin types.

Organic makeup keeps the promise of organic: healthy, skin-safe products that let your skin breathe, considerably reducing the risks of allergies. In addition to aesthetics, organic make-up gives pride of place to the care: the natural ingredients used are combined with active benefits for the skin.

Less make up, more natural beauty.

Natural is synonymous with beauty, women all over the world have been wiping off their make-up and choosing to embrace their natural beauty. 

Wearing less makeup and getting people used to seeing you like that is so easy. It’s like weaning someone off caffeine or social media: slow and gradual. This exercise will also give you a boost of confidence.

Start by removing one piece of makeup first, like maybe your eyeshadow, and wearing your face that way for a week. A week is a decent amount of time for people to get used to what your face looks like without eyeshadow.

Then, remove another: maybe the eyebrow fill-in. Let another week go by. Soon, you’ll be down to the bare minimum, and nobody will have noticed that you were doing anything.

Aside form being practical, wearing less makeup would bring tremendous benefits to your skin’s health and to the environment.

Clean beauty helps the environment.

Organic beauty is eco-friendly. Conventional beauty products utilize petroleum-based ingredients and usually rely on a host of other chemicals for their production process. These compounds are typically harsh substances, like petroleum, aluminum, and lead, all of which require extensive mining. Much of this is done in some of the world’s most beautiful and sensitive areas, like the Amazon rainforest, and miles of land are destroyed and stripped of vital wildlife every year. 

Moreover, organic make-up and skincare are more environmentally friendly because not only is the packaging less polluting made with recyclable materials but also, the ingredients are produced from organic farming and undergo no transformation. Most organic beauty brands (like us) make products in small batches with minimum waste and do not test on animals.

Let’s all be more conscious on what we put on our skin and body and choose clean organic products that celebrate our natural beauty and honor the planet we live in.
