Starting my mornings with yoga and stretching is one of the best decisions I made so far this year. The body (and mind) feels awake, lighter and ready for the day ahead. I have always been fond of starting my day with a power walk, but at the moment yoga is taking first place.
The feeling of gratitude is a powerful gift. Use it every day; think about 5 things you are grateful for every morning – gratitude promotes happiness.
Setting goals. Plan. Act. A good goal has to affect you in a positive way, it has to make you want to jump out of bed each morning. It has to challenge you. Trigger you. A goal should be specific but foremost it has to be fun. It has to evoke positive and remarkable feelings.
Sunlight. I appreciate the light so much, especially after two long dark November and December months. My soul is alive when the sun is shining. It has been shining since we came to Budapest, at least it feels like that. Last night we even had a light snow fall. Just lovely.
Space. I’m obsessed with space; everything about it fascinates me. ”There exists an area so unfathomable large that humans refer to it simply as space.”
”Space isn’t remote at all. It’s only an hour’s drive away if your car could go straight upwards.” – Sir Fred Hoyle
That feeling after a tough workout. The feeling that you could almost conquer the world.
The art of learning a language. My mother language is Swedish. I speak Finnish and English and a little German. I have studied the basics of Italian (I do not speak Italian). Nonetheless, I prefer writing in English since it forces my brain to work extra hard. My English language skills are far from perfect and I most probably make mistakes all the time, but if it does not challenge you, it does not change you.
