What are we talking about when we talk about sustainable development?

July 11, 2017

As long as I can remember I have had an interest in environmental issues and holistic living, long before yoga came to my life. Coming from Finland environment is something we are surrounded by all the time and things like not littering, paying for plastic bags in supermarkets and recycling were things that were well established in every aspect of the society already in the 1980s and even…

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.

Dog Bullet Journal

Back in December I wrote about bullet journaling and how I was giving it a go.

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.

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…
