Hello fall! I hope you’re excited about this new season, which comes with fresh air and new opportunities. I love that period between summer and winter, when the leaves turn red, the air is crisp and I can wear my favorite woolen sweater again. September was a beautiful month, with lots of traveling, good food and a bit of yoga.
It took me a long time, many years after I started my yoga practice, before I got into meditation. I struggled, and struggled, and struggled. My mind never got quiet, my body never stopped moving and I thought I simply wasn’t capable of meditating. Until I started using tools. Suddenly meditation came to me and I realized I could actually be still and quiet my mind. These are my favorite meditation tools.
Happy September! Oh how I love this month! It still feels like summer, the apples are ripe and that nice first part of fall is coming up. Last month I traveled to Amsterdam and Prague, and tomorrow we’re leaving to Tenerife, followed by Ibiza and Thailand. Life is a little crazy these days, in a good way. Anyway, these are my August favorites.
A racing heartbeat, sweaty hands, dizziness, muscle tension, pressure on the chest, the feeling you might faint: these can all be symptoms of an upcoming anxiety attack. Many people struggle with this, and I’ve had my fare share of anxiety attacks, too. Today I’m sharing my favorite essential oils to reduce anxiety and feel calmer, instantly.
Happy August my love. I hope you’re having a great summer! July was such an intense month for me, with a lot of traveling, a massive amount of work and lots of experimenting with food. We’re also preparing for our move to a new apartment here in Oslo, and we had to say goodbye to my lovely grandad after he passed away two weeks ago. Happiness and sadness really go hand in hand, and they’re often so closely connected. It’s okay though, it’s all good. Here are some of my favorite moments of last month.
Oh summer… <3. We’re so lucky here in Oslo. Long days, short nights, and a lot of sun (and no rain, knock on wood!). Me and my husband went on a short trip to Amsterdam, Lyon (France) and the French Jura to visit our family, but I also discovered a lot of great new things in Oslo. Here are my favorites of the month of June.
We all know the feeling: the one day everything flows and we’re high on life, but the next day we feel like everything little thing is too much and we feel we’ve burned up all our energy. This is what happened to me last week, when, suddenly, my body started doing strange things. While waiting for the results from my medical tests to come in, all I could do was to stop, and rest. Today, I’d like to you to know that you’re not alone.
Today I want to encourage you to stop and listen. To check in with your body and ask yourself what you need. Is it action? Is it silene? Is it movement? Is it stillness? Take some time today to really feel into your body before you make any decisions. Be, feel, observe, and then decide what to do, where to go.
