Don’t worry, be happy.

Because I think everybody kind of already knows how to be happy, sometimes we just need a reminder.

  • Love & accept yourself for who you are.
  • See relationships as an extension to, rather than the basis of the human experience.
  • Embrace change. Life is a constant lesson and happy people tend to be well-aware of that.
  • Celebrate rather than compare yourself to the accomplishments of others.
  • Never dwell in being a victim.
  • Trust that everything will be okay.
  • Dont let money dictate your life.
  • Live in the present!

LIFEH

Hello July.

It is now mid-summer and only 2.5 months until my departure to Australia! A midst the sun, fun, and malibou vodka I wanted to share with you some of my own so called life hacks that might bring you some ideas.

  • Freeze any of your alcoholic/non-alcoholic drinks in popsicle molds for those warm days.
  • Pour coffee into an ice tray, so you make coffee-flavored cubes that don’t water down your iced coffee.
  • Mix Aloe Vera with water and freeze it to ice your body after a day in the sun.
  • Honey and olive oil make a cheap face mask.
  • You can use a piece of dry spaghetti to light candles.
  • Bleach your hair whilst tanning with lemon juice.
  • Avoid blisters from shoes by putting deodorant on your feet.
  • Easily make your own portable grill like so..

Have any other hacks? Share them!

luciddreamJust last night I played around in the depths of my consciousness, walking on water, talking to animals, and eating a kitchen full of chocolate..well because I wanted to! For a moment I was heading into a nightmare, so I just let myself wake up.

Lucid dreaming is this insanely cool concept where your body is asleep yet you are still conscious enough to have complete control over your dreams! There are absolutely no limitations to what you can create and something anyone can do with some practice.

squat

Oh my quad Becky, look at that squat!?

This is by no means nor ever will be a fitness blog, simply that isn’t my interest. However, we do love healthy happy bodies that make healthy happy minds! So, without further ado, I have accepted a 30-day 100-squats challenge. The rules are quite self explanatory and I have only heard good things about this challenge!

I hope to bring you better than good results and if any of you want to try or have already done this, share your progress! Checking off day one. Gonna drop it like a squat all month.

Above are some photos of myself in the woodsy setting of Pålsjö. My friend Emelie and I had been chatting about having a photo session for quite a while and I’m really happy we finally got it done! More photos are on their way, with Emelie as well, so check in!

airplaneI cannot even fathom that I’ll be packing onwards to Australia in september! The flight is booked, dates are set, and I’ve had a couple meetings with my mentor regarding the usual questions one might have moving to another continent for the first time ALONE. *Pause to breathe* I’ve already made a checklist of the absolutely necessary things that I need to see, do, or experience down under. Can september arrive fast enough? Only thing now is to wait…

starhandsIf we want equality within gender we need to stop assigning specific mannerisms and erase limitations of stereotyping. How is it not so goddamn clear yet that we are all individuals in our own right and that isn’t based upon what we have in-between our legs?

It frustrates me that when a woman is strong and determined she is seen as bossy whereas a man showing emotion, a pussy. Each sex has BOTH masculinity and femininity. We need to obliterate the term ”feminism” because not many actually know what it means anymore and are pushing it to a point where there is no equality.

Why is it such an insult for a man to be called a woman? We need to stop oppressing those who don’t fit a criteria that is outdated! We need to redefine the source of this issue because you already know all of this, and I’m not the first to write about it! Let’s crack open these narrow-minded neanderthals and welcome them to the 21st century.

Well this recipe is just insanely yum. Kiwis are the underdogs of the berry family and are so rich in vitamin C, fibres, and antioxidants. If that doesn’t impress you, avocados have been shown to increases memory, reduce stress, and quicken your metabolism. Eat ‘em when they’re just ripe. Mmm….we like green.

Good afternoon, Readers! Hope the sun is shining on you as well! I’ve decided to add a new category: #iphonelife where every once in a while, I’ll share some everyday photos and happenings. This adorable creature is Julius, a frisky bichon frise who is absolutely affectionate and cuddle crazy. He insisted on sitting next to me on my desk while I was writing this post. What a babe!

goodstuffI adore those inspiring moments where, regardless of how you are doing, they lift you up and shake you around a bit until you fall back into perspective. The way of life is big and small, concrete and earthly, and ever-changing.

hbghamn3Us humans have this tendency to believe that it’s always better to be somewhere else; where the sun shines brighter, the grass is greener, people are just down-right friendlier. The fact is, you forget to open your eyes and see yourself around. Look at what you have forgotten to appreciate! The windy little town of Helsingborg has it’s charms too! Especially now that summer is closing in. Get off that goddamn phone of yours and look.

Ps. For those who are interested in my flickr page, you can find it here.

freemindpostThe concept of insults has always fascinated me in human behaviour. How we relate other forms of injustices to ourselves. The key is to master what is called a ”free mind”.

”A free mind is a mind that is open to everything and attached to nothing. Most people spend much of their time looking for reasons to be offended. An open mind is never offended because it is free of any attachments. It is never the self that is offended but always the illusion that the self has of itself that is affected by insult! If you can really understand this, deeply grasp it’s truth, live it each day, then pain will be no more. Next time you feel offended look closely within yourself at yourself and ask yourself what was offended? If you remain aware you will see that it was only an image of yourself which you had become attached to, and that image did not resonate with the image contained in the insult. If you weren’t attached, if you didn’t identify with the wrong image of yourself then there would be no offense taken. You would then remain free and therefore happy.”

Some food for thought.

blue

Not only are blueberries sweet, zesty, and scream summer..they are absolutely healthy! Charged with vitamins C, E, riboflavin, niacin, and folate, blueberries contain essentials that works wonders for our bodies. They help us lose weight, protect the brain from environmental toxins, decrease wrinkles, reduce allergies, and consist minerals like iron, magnesium, manganese, and potassium. They even increase the production of dopamine in your brain! Enough said.

You must try the recipe I attached above. Do you feel blue yet?
