This month has been brilliant for me , I've had more happy moments than I can count and I'm handling the bad moments better :) I wanted to start doing a monthly favorites post each month again however I wanted to keep Don'tBurstMyBubble really focused on positivity so from now on every month I will be posting a favorites post with a twist. 'What's Been Wonderful' will be a collection of my favorite positive little things that I've learnt and found in the past month. I really hope you enjoy !
'Today is going to be a good because because I will make positive choices to make it that way .'
I'm a big fan of Psychologies magazine and this month I read an article talking about self confidence. It was a pretty long article and I took a lot from it but what I found really interesting was a piece of research into how your posture affects your confidence. It found that sitting up straight and openly for even just two minutes a day affects your brain chemistry to become more confident. The article als talked about how if you adopted a better posture for a few minutes before an interview ( or any anxiety provoking situation) it's more affective than trying to do it once you're already in the situation as that can make you feel fake.

What have I been grateful for ?
Support from my friends over the last few months has been amazing, I've been completely over whelmed by their kindness and support. I couldn't be more grateful <3
I've suddenly become really interested in crystals ( The sparkly kind but I'm also loving Crystal the blogger so check her out as well hehe because she has her own kind of sparkle ) and learning all their different benefits. This month I bought Prehnite which is a heart chakra and solar plexus ( power ) chakra stone and Prehnite it will protect your personal energy so you won't absorb other peoples negatve energy which is something I really struggle with , as a result it increases your energy . It also helps ease worries which is always a good thing :)
Increasing your well being
Each month I want to include one small thing that I'd like to do over the up coming month to increase my well being :) This month , I want to get up 15 minutes earlier so that I don't need to' rush and stress in your morning because that is when the stress hormone in your body is most active . With this extra time I'm planning to make my bed and make sure my room is tidy before I leave the house so I don't have a big mess built up at the end of the week :)
What have you been grateful for this month and how are you planning to improve your happiness / wellbeing / self this month ? Id love to hear from you in the comments !
Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)
Lots of love, Marianne xxx
