                The easiest way to create this would probably be to collect colour swatches from your local DIY or paint shop. Then cut out some little hearts and put them in a frame or on a canvas.

                8. Washi Tape Frames.

                  The frame can be as important as the picture when we’re decorating our homes, but that doesn’t mean they have to extravagant! These require the one and only ingredient of washi tape.

                      In this example, each of the leaves is signed, which makes this wreath even more special. Cut out the shapes, have people write on them or add your own inspirational messages and glue them to some paper.

                      11. Paper Pom Poms.

                              I know what you’re thinking: “who would have toilet roll on their walls?” But look at how pretty these pieces are! Cut tubes into equal parts and stick them together before hanging them up! You can even paint them to add some colour.

                                    If you’re feeling brave, hammer some nails into your wall and thread yourself a heart. If not, practice on a canvas – it’ll look just as good!

                                                                                Trouser hangers, clipboards, curtain hangers – why not test out which type you prefer and get to hanging?

                                                                                36. Art Supply Art.

                                                                                  37. Doily Art.

                                                                                    38. Crayon Glue Gun Art.

                                                                                      How to Keep Yourself Awake at Work Without Caffeine

                                                                                      How to Keep Yourself Awake at Work Without Caffeine

                                                                                      Keeping yourself awake at work can be a real challenge when you’re bored, exhausted or sleep-deprived.

                                                                                      But before you reach for that can of Red Bull, bottle of Mountain Dew, or pot of coffee, try these healthy remedies to stimulate your 5 different senses and help you stay awake at work:

                                                                                      Sight – Visual Stimulation

                                                                                      The first thing you do when you wake up is opening your eyes, so your visual stimulation is very important to keeping your energy level high.

                                                                                      1. Maximize your exposure to light.

                                                                                      Your body’s internal rhythm is regulated by the amount of light you receive. The greater your exposure, the more alert you will feel.

                                                                                      Open the shades and let in the sunlight. Step outside or look out the window. Turn on all the artificial lights in your office or around your work space.

                                                                                      2. Exercise your eyes (or give them a break).

                                                                                      Roll your eyes up and down, side to side and diagonally. Rotate them clockwise and then counterclockwise. Squeeze them shut and then open them wide. Do this several times.

                                                                                      Reading and sitting in front of a computer screen for long periods can lead to eye fatigue.

                                                                                      Take regular breaks with deliberate blinking and looking out into the distance.

                                                                                      3. Take note of your environment.

                                                                                      Learn to enjoy people-watching. Observe their activities, speech, body language and interactions with others. Notice the details of building, trees and other objects around you, including their color, shape and size.

                                                                                      By doing this, you’re not only relaxing your eye muscles but also calming your mind.

                                                                                      Advertising

                                                                                      Hearing – Auditory Stimulation

                                                                                      What you hear or listen to have direct effect on your brain. This is why we feel so annoyed and sometimes angry when we hear construction noise when we’re working.

                                                                                      4. Engage in conversation.

                                                                                      Talk to a friend or colleague. Trade funny stories. Discuss your business venture, a creative idea, the latest political scandal, or any other topic that interests you.

                                                                                      Practice mindful listening to what you and the other person are saying. Tune into the tone, volume and content of the conversation.

                                                                                      Learn how to practice better listening from this guide:

                                                                                      Why Listen to Reply Instead of Understand Is the Key to Failure

                                                                                      5. Listen to upbeat music.

                                                                                      Try hip hop, rock or jazz to keep you alert. Instrumental, non-distracting music works best.

                                                                                      Sing, whistle, and hum along if you can. Plug in the earphones if you must.

                                                                                      Smell – Olfactory Stimulation

                                                                                      If you’re feeling sleepy and suddenly smell the coffee, you’ll probably feel more energetic. This is why smell is an influential stimulation.

                                                                                      6. Work your nose.

                                                                                      Aroma therapists recommend essential oils of peppermint (to boost energy), rosemary (to build awareness), eucalyptus (to increase oxygen), cedarwood  (to activate your mind), and cinnamon (to improve your reaction time).

                                                                                      If you don’t have essential oils on hand, you can use lotions or burning candles that provide the same scents.

                                                                                      Advertising

                                                                                      Citrus like lemons, limes, grapefruits and oranges are also natural olfactory stimulants. Get a whiff of these citrus scents to stay awake.

                                                                                      Taste – Gustatory Stimulation

                                                                                      If you want an energetic day at work, you can’t let your tongue feeling plain and flavorless.

                                                                                      7. Have a good breakfast.

                                                                                      Start off with the most important meal of the day.

                                                                                      Think fresh, light and healthy: bran cereals, wholegrain breads, fruits, and yogurt.

                                                                                      Nix the heavy stuff like sausages, greasy eggs or pancakes.

                                                                                      Need some breakfasts inspirations? Check out these ideas:

                                                                                      8. Drink lots of water.

                                                                                      Keep a glass or bottle of H2O near you and sip from it throughout the day. Dehydration can leave you feeling tired, sluggish and sleepy.

                                                                                      So make sure you drink enough water throughout the day. Not sure how much to drink? This can help you:

                                                                                      How Much Water Should You Drink Each Day (and How Much Is Too Much for You)

                                                                                      Advertising

                                                                                      Think that you’ve been drinking too little water? Try these friendly reminders:

                                                                                      3 Best Apps To Help You Drink Much More Water

                                                                                      9. Eat energy-boosting snacks.

                                                                                      Nuts and fruits (like bananas, apples and strawberries) are sure bets. Pairings with staying power include baby carrots with a low-fat cream cheese dip; celery sticks with peanut butter; red peppers with hummus; and plain yogurt with granola.

                                                                                      Avoid carb-filled, sugary snacks that make you crash and leave you feeling tired.

                                                                                      Last but not least, your sense of touch will make you physically feel more energetic and less stressful.

                                                                                      10. Splash cold water on your face.

                                                                                      Do this in the morning, during bathroom breaks and in the afternoon. Being exposed to cold water pushes your body to adjust and regulate its internal temperature, which in turn keeps you alert.

                                                                                      This works the same as you take a cold shower to increase mood and alertness. Take a look at this article to learn more about it:

                                                                                      11. Use acupressure.

                                                                                      Apply pressure to, massage, or tap on the stimulation points of your body. These include the top of your head, the back of your neck, the back of your hand (between the thumb and index finger), just below the knee and your earlobes.

                                                                                      Watch this video to learn about the acupressure points you can try:

                                                                                      Move away from your chair and stand, walk, run or climb the stairs. Feel the earth under your feet. Stretch and twist. Do jumping jacks, lunges, push-ups and back bends.

                                                                                      And if you need to move more discreetly, wiggle your feet, bounce your knee up and down, scrunch your toes, or cross your legs.

                                                                                      You can also try some simple stretches and exercises at your desk:
