  1. Porquê entrar num desafio diário?
    Existem vários tipos de desafios, mas o resultado é sempre o mesmo: MELHORAR! Seja qual for o tema que escolhas, se fizeres algo, todos os dias, o único resultado possível é = Melhorar!
  2. Quais existem?
    Existem imensos temas que podes escolher: Fotografia, Desenho, Pintura, Escrita, Minimalista, Detox, Exercício de Fitness, Saúde Mental, Saúde Física, etc... Procura por "Desafio 30 dias + Tema que queres melhorar" e de certeza que encontras uma lista completa para ti!
  3. Ganha coragem e mentaliza-te do desafio
    É um desafio, um desafio costuma ser algo difícil, é normal teres dificuldades, é normal desmotivares, é normal que não corra super bem ou que não seja super fácil, é UM.... DESAFIO, é normal ser difícil.
  4. Conta a alguém
    Contar a alguém vai criar alguma pressão que te vai manter fiel ao desafio. Pressão extra é sempre boa para este tipo de desafio. Podes contar a alguém ou, se fizer sentido para o teu desafio, ir publicando no teu instagram ou blog todos os dias.
  5. O equipamento certo
    O equipamento certo é aquele que vocês já têm com vocês. Ponto final. Não arranjem desculpas.
  6. Retirar tempo do dia
    Ser inteligente com o vosso tempo é das melhores formas de ter sucesso nos desafios diários. A melhor dica que tenho para vocês é arranjarem um bloco de horas, específico, por dia, para trabalhar no desafio. Se souberem quando têm de fazer o desafio fica mais fácil de planear o resto do vosso dia à volta disso.
  7. Procurar pessoas que estão a passar pelo mesmo
    Às vezes precisamos de um empurrãozinho extra, às vezes precisamos de saber que outras pessoas estão a passar pelos mesmos entraves para perceber que é algo normal. Ajudem-se mutuamente, o processo vai ser muito mais fácil.
  8. Automatiza
    Se quiseres partilhar o teu processo, todos os dias, é necessário criares algumas regras contigo mesma para tudo ser o mais simples possível. Procura hashtags e cria blocos para ires usando e alternando entre fotos. Agenda sempre que for possível. Sempre que puderes cria descrições prontas para as fotos que vais publicar.
  9. Pensa em ideias todos os dias
    Para quem vai fazer desafios em que são necessários um bocadinho de criatividade (Fotografia/Escrita/Vídeo/Desenho, etc...), não vou dizer que vai ser fácil e não vou dizer que as ideias vão aparecer facilmente sem problema nenhum. A vida não funciona assim. Muitas vezes estamos super cansados e não temos forças para conseguir ser criativos, é normal. Vamos tentar precaver-nos dessa situação e escrever todos os dias, num momento em que estejas sem fazer nada, à espera do transporte público ou de alguém, ou mesmo no metro, escreve durante 5 min, sem parar, coisas que vêm à cabeça. É um exercício criativo que te vai ajudar imenso quando estiverem sem criatividade nenhuma, basta só ir a esses papéis e retirar uma ideia para recriar, a mais simples possível, se estiverem cansados.
  10. Desfruta os resultados
    O facto de conseguires terminar o desafio vai já ser em si um óptimo presente, para a vossa cabeça, para a vossa auto estima. Vais-te sentir capaz de vencer tudo e todos. Vai-te dar uma adrenalina que nunca sentiste na vida. Vai-te mudar completamente a forma de pensar e ver o mundo.

Phubbing é quando ignoramos alguém que está ao nosso lado porque estamos sempre a olhar para o telemóvel.
E embora isto seja um problema recente, porque os telemóveis são relativamente recentes, sinto que este tipo de problema ronda o nosso mundo há anos e anos, podemos falar da televisão, dos headphones nos ouvidos, tudo é uma barreira entre nós e a pessoa que está ao lado, no lado de fora.

Este tipo de distracções, embora úteis e fantásticas quando estamos sozinhos, tornam-se um incómodo quando estamos a tentar interagir com outras pessoas. Estas distracções nunca se podem tornar numa barreira entre vocês e as pessoas que mais gostam.

No outro dia fui jantar fora e no restaurante onde eu estava chegou um casal, cada um com os olhos fixados nos seus telemóveis, sentaram-se na mesa praticamente sem tirar os olhos do telemóvel, esperaram pela comida sem tirar os olhos do telemóvel, jantaram super rápido, trocaram meia dúzia de palavras e meia dúzia de sorrisos, curiosamente, com os olhos no telemóvel, e foram embora.
(Achei "piada" ao facto de ter os sapatos Lovers, que menciona exactamente este problema que ocorre nos casais)

Quando a StandFor me convidou para apoiar esta nova campanha eu nunca tinha reparado, nem sentido de perto, este problema. Não conhecia o casal, mas escolherem passar assim a sua sexta-feira à noite deixou-me mesmo triste. Pensei como é que eles teriam começado, quem teria dado o primeiro passo, como teria sido o primeiro encontro, como apostaria que toda a atenção nesses dias era só para eles, sem distracções, sem telemóveis, pensei em como teriam sido esses primeiros dias, cheios de nervosismo bom, e aquela dor de barriga adorável, e depois pensei como é que tanta coisa boa ficou em segundo plano para dar lugar a um aparelho que dá luz...

We live in a competitive and stressful world. Till last year I was constantly worried about everything. I was always worried that the worst was going to happen and I preferred to stay at home than to confront all the things that eventually could go wrong.
I changed, a lot, and I'm so much happier. Here are the things I did to stop worrying about everything.
Get shit together
I was the worst when it came to get things done. I always postponed everything, the usual excuses were "I was sick" or "I had too much work at school", which was always true, but that lead to the usual phrase: "I'll do it tomorrow".
Gladly I'm not like this anymore. Once I did the last thing I promised someone (or myself) I'll do everything fell into place. I felt freedom and a sense of relief I didn't felt in a long, long, time.
So, first thing you need to do is create a list of things you need to do right away and give them some deadlines, to keep you moving.
Create a game with it if you want to. If you do three things before the deadline you'll give yourself something nice as a present. Or just think that if you'll do everything you will be free and will have time to do what you really enjoy.

Surround yourself with the best
It's not always easy to surround yourself with the best people for you. People tend to reveal their worst when you are at your lowest-self, and that's exactly the time you need them the most.
Just keep near to you people that proved themselves to be great friends. And that will make you smile when all you feel is the need to cry.
Let go of people that hurt you. I know, for experience, that is hard to let go of someone that you once loved, but it's for the best.

Let it out
Don't trap your feelings inside of you, let it out! Say what you feel and don't be afraid.
Last year I've met someone that wasn't afraid to tell me I was being stupid or stubborn and never in my life I had people that talked to me like that. It was a kick in the stomach to be truthful but it was so relieving. And, because of that, I changed so much, for the better, and I wasn't afraid to confront my problems.
Do you love someone? Tell them. Do you miss someone? Call them. Did someone hurt you? Don't be afraid to talk to them about it.

Do what you love
Find something you love to do and do it. It's always nice to have an hobby but don't put pressure in it. Read a book, but don't rush to the end of it just so you can be able to say you've read it first than your friend.
In today's world everything is a competition, just forget the world for a moment. Do a thing for yourself and not for the views and likes. You will love yourself more for that.

Be healthy
Eat healthier food, exercise, sleep at least 8 hours, drink water daily, you know the drill. Find someone you could share this kind of lifestyle with, it will be a lot easier.

Just be happy! Go on.

When I was 15 I found out I had a back problem called Scoliosis, it's a really common thing, it usually happens if you grow really quickly or you have a bad posture during the growth process.

My spine had an 'S' shape, it was curved to the right on the top and curved to the left on the bottom.
I discovered I had it when I was doing some abs and my gymnastic's teacher put her hand in my back and notice that something was wrong. She had the same problem when she was little so she help me a lot and gave me great tips.

I went to the doctor and he made me take X-rays. It was really true, I really had my spine curved and that explained the pain I was having everyday.
The doctor told me the only treatment I had was to do surgery but we should only do it in extreme cases. He told me the only thing he could do for me, at that moment, was to give me painkillers.

Some years later I started having some difficulty walking, especially with ballerinas shoes and flat sole shoes. I went to other doctor and he told me that my Scoliosis was causing me knee problems and that I was going to feel back pain for the rest of my life.

Hearing such a horrible thing was hard, so I started doing exercise at that time, I actually made some posts about it (the first one - it's in Portuguese) and asked you to join me, I even made some freebies for you to download with tips about exercises.

The truth is that it worked! I still have pain everyday, but it's weaker, and the difficulty to walk happens less, and if I didn't hurt my knee last year I bet I'd be even better. 
And my spine? It's almost perfect. Can you believe it? My "S" shaped spine is almost like it should be, and the doctor swore to me that I wasn't going to get better.

The first step to get better, and one of the most important, is to set your mind to it! I was focused in getting better and I worked really hard for it. 
The second step is to find your own treatment, search for exercises and alternative methods that will help you along the way. Keep a notebook with all your findings, just think of it as a journey and at the end of the road you will find a healthier you. 
The third step is to not let yourself down if you don't see results right away. This treatment I've put myself into is hard, I'm not gonna lie. I had to be alert about my posture, every single second.
I have a bad habit, when I feel back pain I start to lose a good posture to ease the pain, and every time this happened I had to force a good posture again. It is so hard, and it hurts a lot, I also experimented with clothes with posture correction and it's the worst, I always ended crawled in the ground with pain.

But now I'm here, healthier and better than I was on that first post, and I'm so happy you accompanied me along the way. 
All problems are different and maybe this will work better for you or maybe it won't work. But believe me that you can always try to be healthier, you can't say it doesn't work if you don't at least try.
Don't let anyone let you down, like they tried on me, and tell you can't do something. You can do everything you set your mind to. I tried, will you give it a try? 
Be brave and stay strong.

Taking my driving license was really hard for me, not because I had trouble with the exams, I passed both exams at the first time and with excellence, if I may say so ahahah.

But I had a hard time because I'm a pain in the ass. I am.

I was sure that I wasn't going to like any of it. I thought I didn't needed a car and that it was a waste of my time and money. The time to get the license since you put foot on the school is two years, and I used it all, I'm a bad ass.

I went to the first class and I thought the subject was dumb, which it is. I went to some more classes from that teacher, but he only gave a 30 minutes class, so I decided to wait for the next one.

The teacher that gave the other class was amazing, I really liked him, he was funny, nice and a really good teacher. But as always I started to feel that I was being forced to be there, which I kinda was, and then university exams appeared and I decided to focus on them, months passed and passed... Decided to go again, starting to love the classes again and I had a little problem.

I was walking to the class and I thought "Ow, I can believe I'm going to class without feeling forced to go", and then I thought: "My knee doesn't hurt so much anymore, the doctor was the worst telling me I was going to feel pain forever" and then I fell...

In the ground was a plastic round shaped thing, the kind of thing people uses to wrap magazines to deliver to shops, you know?. And I didn't see it, my feet got trapped and I fell.

It would be completely fine to fall if I didn't already had a knee problem. I crushed my knee cartilage and it was really hard for me to walk. I had to take pills to reconstruct my knee cartilage for two months, it was awful. But that is a story for another day.

I didn't go to the university for days, and of course I didn't go to the other school either.

When summer arrived, and I only had four months to do driving exams, I decided it was time to go (but it took me about 2 weeks to actually go). I went everyday for two/three weeks and then I made the first exam, answered all question correctly.

I ended loving the classes, I knew everything and I loved knowing. My teacher was amazing and it was hard leaving the classes (for about 2 weeks, then I went back to normal ahah)

The driving lessons were also good. Never thought I would love to drive a car, but it was amazing.

I made my driving exam a few days before the end of the deadline. It was extremely bad ass of me and my teacher but we've made it. The exam went really well and everything worked out for the best.

Now I have a car, and it's perfect! It's my little "Gordo" (it's the portuguese word for "fat") as I like to call it.

As you can see I'm really stubborn. And sometimes I have to force myself to do things I don't want to do, so I can end up loving them.

If you are like me try to give this opportunities a chance. There's nothing wrong in trying.

Helena and Me
I've been blogging for a while now, although not intensely as I do at the moment.
Many of you may think that all bloggers are competing for a place on top, as the hit blog of the century.
I don't see it like that, everyone has their opinions and they should be able to share them. There's never going to be "too many bloggers".

What I do to help other bloggers:

Online Classes in Web Design
As a blogger I don't mind, not even a little, to help other bloggers out. As you can see I even do online classes for them to personalize their blogs to create something unique and only theirs.
I LOVE html and css, I love to control my blog's design with only some lines of text. And why not teach you some things to help you out?

Mailbox always open
I receive a lot of e-mails or messages on Facebook from other bloggers. They usually need my help when technical html errors occur, or if they need some specif code for their blogs.
I love to help, and I always do, but sometimes other bloggers forget I'm only human and have a life and problems of my one. Sometimes I do it right away in 10 minutes, sometimes I can only open your e-mails two days later. Don't be mad, understand, and we will be alright (with a wonderful blog design).

Photography
Taking a hour a day to take photos of other bloggers doesn't cost me a bit. Especially if they are as nice as Helena. I love to take photographs and it's a wonderful way to train my photography's skills.

Inspirational blog posts
Blog posts like this one, or the "Being a blogger", help a lot. I love to read this kind of blog posts. They give as a boost of creativity and energy that almost any other post can't.
Is perfect for a brief introspection and to understand what we are doing right and wrong.

Sharing the Love
There's nothing wrong in sharing other blog's links, giveaways or even helping them out by sharing some personal stuff.
We are all in this together and it doesn't hurt to help each others out. It will make this journey a lot more welcoming and easier. Share the love

In the end of December I promised a blog post every day and I haven't missed one day, I'm so proud!
Being a blogger is disguised as a hobby but is in fact a full-time job, a very fun, but sometimes frustrating, job.

Bloggers, as writers, may experience "writer's block", is really common to have a shortage of inspiration from time to time, because, who can be 100% creative all the time and be able to come up with ideas that captivate the readers?

In the end of last year, Maggie gave me the Blog Book, a journal for bloggers to write ideas for blog posts and plan ahead. I've been using mine for just that. It's also filled with little post-its when I have a "brilliant" idea for a blog post and I don't want to forget.

My phone is filled with blogger-friendly apps, I have Pinterest to drown in creativity, Bloglovin to get an update on my favorite blogs, the app Blogger that I use to blog on-the-go, I use it a lot on the subway. And of course Instagram where I post daily for you to keep a tab on me.

As a blogger I also have to keep my camera ready to shoot, always with a full battery and an empty SD card, and I admit that I love this part, I really love to take photographs.

One of the best part of being a blogger is to be able to meet people. I'm not much the social kind of girl, so "forcing" me to socialize is kinda great for me. I've met such wonderful followers and bloggers and I'm so grateful for that.

Being a blogger can be a really demanding job, but I love it, and I love that you're there in the other side of the screen reading my crazy blog.
