7 Yoga-inspired Tips for Anxiety and Stress

May 14, 2017
GiveThanksAllWhite

This past week has been the Mental Health Awareness Week. However, mental health is obviously not an issue just for one week a year, just like a good mental health is more than just absence of a mental health problem. Stress and anxiety for instance are issues that touch all of us at least some point in our lives: school or university exams, professional demands and relationship challenges…

Abhyasa and Vairagya

Yoga by the beach

Practise and non-attachment can seem to be very contradictory terms as we usually associate practise with the expectation of some sort of results. Yet together these two form the principles that the whole yoga system as we know it today rests. You might have heard your yoga teacher to say the words ”just let everything go that does not serve you”. Maybe you even liked that phrase because…

About Bullet Journaling

April 20, 2017
Dog Bullet Journal

Back in December I wrote about bullet journaling and how I was giving it a go. Four months later I am loving the method as it really helps to bring structure to my life.  Several of my friends have taken up BuJo-ing as well so I thought I do a little update about the whys and hows. If you are new to the concept, bullet journal is simply…

Spring Clean

In the last post I wrote about moving away from things that just do not feel right, even if reason can tell us otherwise. Needless to say, the topic of recognising when it is time to change the course and refocus energies has been in my mind a lot lately. Not that I have gone for some radical overhaul of my life (yet), rather I have tweaked certain…

Giving Up is an Option too

April 12, 2017
Countryside activities

When it comes to life advice, open any website, app or TV programme and we are quickly fooled into thinking that giving up is the biggest cardinal sin. From fitness routines, diets, dating to self-entrepreneurship, there seems to be an entire industry reminding us of the hidden powers and untapped potential that lives within us. We are advised how we should be pushing in the face of obstacles…

Yoga, Spirituality and Reddit

March 10, 2017

There are as many yoga stereotypes out there are as there are styles of yoga. And as with all the stereotypes, they do not come completely from nowhere, just as much as they do not represent the whole truth either. From time to time I come across comments from people who express interest in yoga, followed by a “but” and a reference to the level of spirituality associated.…

About Yoga Photos for Instagram…

January 23, 2017

After all the talk about the Yoga Sutras I feel the need (maybe you do too) for some comic relief. So who else to turn to than JP Sears and his video about the importance of Yoga Photos for Instagram. Joogasutrajuttujen jälkeen (käännän Niyamas-postauksen vielä suomeksi, pikkuhiljaa…) tuli tunne että pieni kevennys on paikallaan. JP Searsin juttu Instagramin joogakuvista on tähän juuri sopiva. My own yoga pictures do…

CMD 2017/renew

January 1, 2017

What seems to be the most anticipated New Year is finally here and yes, I for one am pretty happy for it. Not because 2016 was personally the worst ever (but it was very bizarre) but because those weird ”non-existent days” between Christmas and New Year always make me feel like I am on a weird limbo-timeloop where nothing you do really counts (for the good and the…

Patience, Where Are Thou?

December 19, 2016

“Patience: the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, difficulty, or annoyance without getting angry or upset.”  Patience can mean different things to us, and its definition can also vary depending on the situation. Usually patience has an underlying realisation that we want, need  – or lack – more self-control in situation we face. Here are few thoughts on how to map where we stand on this issue and…
