When the days never turn into nights, thats when you know that its Summer in the north. Its nothing like a pristine Nordic Summer, when the weather is in our favour which is has been for weeks.



Long days. Short nights. Birds singing. Ocean smell. Flirting. Bare foot. Green fields.

It has been about one month since I completed my yoga teacher training in Bali. I have been practising everyday, some days only 10 minutes but I have been doing it everyday. When I left Bali I knew that my practise would not be as it were during my time there. Here everyday life is happening at the same time, so somedays 10 minutes is all that is manageable, but my teacher in Bali said;

Practise everyday, even if it is only for 7 minutes.

So I intend to keep that promise. 

My self practise is one of my most important priorities, which I intend to keep as part of my daily life routine. I´m feeling the power of the work I put into it, it is a vibrant flow of energy.
Everything is a work in progress, I believe I will never reach a final stage where there is no more to achieve, but this is such a motivation to keep learning, reaching higher and improving, because there is always a new level to reach.

With spring comes the beautiful yellow dandelions, they pop up everywhere and most people dont think much of them. I´m here to change your opinion on that. The dandelion is a super great plant that has real health benefits, especially the root of the flower.

The dandelion root is a great, to mention a few amazing uses for it; detoxifier of our digestive system, liver, gallbladder & its also a powerful antioxidant. The amazing thing is that you can just go out and pick it yourself, so its a complete free super food right outside of your door.

The best way to use the root, is to dry it, pick it into tiny small pieces and boil it. I decided to add in a few other amazing elements to my elixir, to get a kick ass super healthy daily booster.

turmeric root, ginger root, black pepper & chilli. 


A LITTLE TIP

I add the black pepper because it makes it much easier for the body to absorb the health benefits of turmeric, it increases the observation with app 2000%, which is insanely high, so no point leaving it out.  


 

STEP BY STEP

Chop the turmeric, ginger and dandelion root into small pieces, add it into the pot with water.

Crush the black peppers or use a pepper cracker.

Chop the fresh chilli, just add after your liking of spice, I like it pretty spicy so Ill add a reasonable amount.

Let it all boil and then simmer for a while, 1-2h.

Let it cool down before you strain it with a cloth, to get all the pieces out. I´m leaving it to cool all day, as I´m busy for the rest of the day.

FINAL STEP

To make sure we dont waist any part of the brew, try to blend all the little pieces with some new water in a blender, drain it again, so hopefully you can still get some final juice out of the ingredients.

Your end result will look like this

I´m  a dedicated podcast listener, specially  self-improvement / self-growth & spirituality, and on the other side of the scale; true crime podcasts. I mostly listen to podcast when I commute, as I find it a great way to keep occupied with something useful while travelling, instead of just scrolling through Facebook/Instagram looking at non-useful content.

……

My absolute favourite spiritual and self-growth podcast at this current time, is “Highest Self” podcast. The host is a female called Sahara Rose, who talk about many interesting aspects of spirituality and how to become your highest self, and she also interviews interesting people.


 

Check out the website clicking the image under, to find out more about Sahara, the podcast and her messages to us.

I use Podcast Player from Castbox; you find it in your app store/play store and it is free.

Donating your time and energy to a group or organisation that works for things you believe in is a great way to give back. Giving money is obviously a great contribution, and most organisations would not be able to do their amazing work without money from people. However your time is also a precious thing to contribute.

I signed up as a volunteer for Norway´s largest animal rights groups, NOAH.
I´m joining them whenever I can and I find this is a great way to really give back and support the animal rights, which is one thing I´m extremly passionate about.. It is also a beautiful way to connect with like-minded people, share ideas, visions and passions.

Check out NOAH`S work by clicking on the image above, and if you dont support a animal welfare group yet, become a contributor too. ♥

Having a yoga mat is something any yogi would need, so me being such a strong advocate for the environment felt like sharing two sustainable companies to get your yoga mat from.
Many mats have dangerous PVC, Toxic glues, and other nasty chemicals, so making sure you buy a mat that is good for the environment and for yourself should be of importance to you.


YOGI PEACE CLUB. & SALLY MUSTANG

 

ECO BENEFITS: 

Free from the nasties – latex, silicone, toxic glue, PVC, Chlorine and Phthalates. No toxic smell.

 

My yoga mat is a sacred place I spend a lot of time on, so both how it looks, feels and affect the environment are all equally important aspects of purchasing a mat.

Good morning wonderful people, Its Friday morning here in Oslo, I´m having a slow morning before work. My weekend is going to be busy, so today was the only day I could allow for a sleep in and quiet morning.

I´m really exited about it, I´ve heard only great things, so I cant wait. There will be several happenings both Saturday and Sunday; cooking classes, food tastings, entertainment on stage, talks and so on…

Check out their event

OSLO VEG FESTIVAL 

So if  you are in Oslo, I hope you will check it out and you dont have to be a full time vegan or vegetarian to go, everyone is welcome.

Go with an open mind and an open heart to learn and experience new ways of living.

Hi lovelies, is that time of the month again when I share a mindful & Eco tip with you lovely people. Living mindful & ethical is a passionate eye-opening journey, so I hope I can inspire you to become a bit more mindful joining me on this incredible journey that I´m so very passionate about.

 

CLEAN UP RUBBISH ON YOUR TRIPS, YOUR WALKS IN NATURE & ANYWHERE YOU ARE OUTSIDE…

Our precious nature and planet is drowning in our manmade rubbish, so its therefore our responsibility to clean up after ourselves. We are making a huge mess around us, harming our planet, humans and animals. It is time to take action against our waist problem and start cleaning up, even if you didn´t leave it there, pick it up.


 

Your rubbish is everybody’s responsibility

Its Monday evening, but feels like Sunday evening as we have had a long weekend.
I´m watching the trees & leafs through my livingroom window, they are moving gracefully. It is a calming and soothing movement, therapeutic.


It is amazingly lush and green around Oslo now, which makes me smile and feel incredible happy. I always try to spend a lot of time in nature, to feel connected to our natural surroundings, mindfully observing nature & connecting with myself. Three days of time spent outside, walking barefoot, smelling the beautiful smells of spring and observing has recharged my batteries for a new week. Living in a city, sometimes we simply forget to be outside around natural elements. So if you feel that you need more time in nature, do something about it now.
