This Weeks Lessons

Checking in again…

So, I’m sitting getting a blowout once again. It’s Saturday, and I have tons of updates.


I love the concept of blogging during my blowout. It’s fun. It’s fresh. Well, at least that’s what I tell myself.


This week was sorta weird so far. Monday was Labor Day, which felt truly like a Sunday. I hung out by the pool for a little bit, got groceries and finished off with some studying.


Tuesday was a day full of homework and editing, since I have class MWF. Wednesday felt like Monday, and threw me off just a little bit. Wednesday I had class all day, came home and quickly ate dinner before heading to spin class. Sitting in a chair all day gets tiring, especially since I love staying active. Spin class Wednesday night truly reenergizes me. I come in tired, exhausted and sometimes a little stressed. However, I leave happy, full of life and excited. While I spin I feel my energy flowing and any blockages I previously had disappearing. It’s crazy what a workout can do.


I’ll be the first to admit, sometimes I don’t really want to go. I feel tired and would rather nap. Yet, I remind myself how GOOD and ALIVE I feel after, and I quickly change into my lululemons.


Thursday I had my hypnosis therapy, which I talked about in my vlog on DailyPolina called “partying with Kylie & anxiety therapy” if you want to hear more about it. In short, it’s life changing and you need to try it.


After that I came home, ate lunch and then headed to a meeting. The meeting was at Graffiti cafe, an 18 and over coffee place. It was my first time there and I fell in love. The theme is black, white and minimalistic. The latte with soy milk was great. The meeting was incredible. I drove home (in so much traffic wah), made dinner and did homework the rest of the night.


 Friday (aka yesterday), I had class all day. I then came home (so exhausted) and took a nap. Shane came over after class as we ate dinner, hung out and had a sleepover.


Now, it’s Saturday morning as I sit in my chair at DryBar and enjoy my blowout. It’s gonna be a good one (I hope).


Lessons of this week:

 -Exercise. Your mind, body and soul will thank you later.

 -Try new places. You never know when you’ll find your go-to spot.

-Lastly, take time for you. If you’re tired, relax. Take a bubble bath. Take a nap. Hang out with your animal. Your health is the most important thing you have, not being exhausted at some lame party.

…and of course, love yourself, you’re all you’ve got.


XO,

PB

  1. Polina,
    Can you make a blog post or video on where to begin with spirituality? I am very interested in what you say in your vlogs regarding crystals, meditating, the class you are taking right now, etc. Hope this makes sense! PS love you girl! <3

  2. I just tweeted this to you, but I just wanted to let you know how impactful your blog posts have become to me. I have recently been feeling “off” and I haven’t been able to put my finger on what may be causing me to feel like I do. I had a rough week last week, with college, friends, and just life in general. Anyway, I have decided that I am going to read your blog posts on Sundays in hopes to help myself get realigned for the week ahead. I am so glad that you have provided such a good outlet for me. Truly, thank you Polina. You don’t know how much your words mean.

  3. Ok seriously how do I become friends with you? Like, you are the only person I keep up with on YouTube and everything you do/believe in is either what I believe in or want to believe in. I stopped keeping up with you I think around my senior year (?) and then I started watching your videos again prior to college and I was SO excited when I found out you were also a Comm major bc it’s so rare to meet who are Comm majors let alone know what a Comm major is .. ANYWAYS I hope everything works out for you today and that everything goes well and I would love if you followed me on Twitter or something so we could be friends so I could have at least more than one friend .. do you even comment/reply on comments on your blog? Idk.. i hope you see this!!
    PS. I HAVE NEVER SEEN SOMEONE LOVE THEIR CAT AS MUCH AS YOU DO IT’S INCREDIBLE

  4. I literally just stumbled across your videos on youtube and honestly, I’m already obsessed, so of course I had to check out your blog! This is the only post I’ve read so far and I am definitely going to read more but I just had to comment on this one. I think you’re dope and all your content that I’ve come across is LIT! Keep up the good work girl and I’m looking forward to getting to know you more!(:
