Being present. Day 6: Using your body to get grounded

8 Dec 2017 spirit + soul

After my little wipe-out knee injury yesterday, I have been pretty much out of commission. I can walk + bend my knee now, but I’m keeping it up + iced for the most part. And honestly, if feels as if I’ve been in a car crash, as I have body aches all freaking over. Really, though, it’s been a great reminder (excuse) to think a lot about how I treat myself + how I care for myself. And, while IRead More

Being present. Day 5: Diary of a slow life

7 Dec 2017 spirit + soul

Thursdays mean the last day of the (outer) work week for me. It’s the last day of the week that I go to the school where I work as a mentor/coach for high school students. And at the end of the day, I downshift into an even slower life than my Monday-Thursday slow life. That doesn’t mean that I am inactive during my long weekends, it just means that my work shifts from my public, extroverted work world, to myRead More

Being present. Day 4: Get creative + live in the moment

6 Dec 2017 liz+lina YouTube

In Sweden, we call Wednesday “Little Saturday”. I’ve never really heard the reason, but I am assuming that it has something to do with the American version of “hump day”. It’s the middle of the week, we’ve made it this far, and we’re well on our way towards the weekend. So, why not celebrate?! Right?! You know, I am a full believe in observing Little Saturday + hump day + wine Wednesday + whatever else you can throw my way.Read More

5 Dec 2017 create + inspire

I suppose you may be wondering…how? How + what do I have planned for this month of being present + for this Advent calendar I am creating? And, most importantly, how do we really learn to be present? Well, first off, I have a plan. I actually do! It is a fluid, yet organized plan. And, this morning as I opened up my computer to begin writing this post, I realized that I haven’t yet shared my plan with you.Read More

Being present. Day 2: How not to start your (Monday) morning

4 Dec 2017 mixtapes

I almost seriously overslept this morning. You’d think that after a cozy, slow weekend at home, I’d be all rested up, but apparently I turned off my alarm at 5:40 and dropped back into a deep sleep. I blame it on the super full moon. She had me all messed up all night long. In any case, I woke with a start at 6:15 and jumped out of bed. Not at all the most awesome way to start a MondayRead More
