I’ve been flirting with minimalism for a quite some time now. Devouring YouTube videos with “10/50/100 things I don’t buy anymore”, reading “The life-changing magic of tidying up” (and hating it, btw), and so on. I’ve realized it isn’t the minimalism in decor that I aspire to (even though all the furniture I bought pastContinue reading “NOVEMBER CHALLENGE | No spend month”

BONUS CHALLENGE | Zero waste challenge

If you’ve been following my blog, it’s all about 30-days challenges, trying to gain some skills, habits etc. which would improve my life. This challenge, however, wasn’t planed for this year, since I did it in 2019., as a part of a project I wrote and managed, but I think it might be the mostContinue reading “BONUS CHALLENGE | Zero waste challenge”

OCTOBER CHALLENGE | Inktober illustrations

I love painting, drawing, making small art works. I am not good at it, but still love to try. While I was in Cuba, I made a drawing, an illustration of each of my days spent in this heaven, and it is still one of my favorite souvenirs from any of my travels. I wouldContinue reading “OCTOBER CHALLENGE | Inktober illustrations”

SEPTEMBER CHALLENGE | Foreign movies month

Continuing on my idea of improving the experiences in my life, and becoming a bit more conscious about the things I do, eat, read, watch, etc., I decided to dedicate one whole month to really good movies (and strike them off as I do). WATCHING FOREIGN MOVIES 30-days challenge for September 2020 My significant otherContinue reading “SEPTEMBER CHALLENGE | Foreign movies month”

AUGUST CHALLENGE | No screens in bed

I spend way too much time on my phone or idle watching Netflix (usually while scrolling my phone). Once I checked how much time I spend on Instagram (there’s an option for that on your phone) and it turns out – 2,5 hours of my day is spent scrolling IG! It’s 2,5 hours I couldContinue reading “AUGUST CHALLENGE | No screens in bed”

JULY CHALLENGE | 10 000 steps a day

This is a pretty simple one. I spend most of my day sitting down, typing, and whatnot. This challenge is here to make me walk more. To not take a bus to the ferry port, but to walk those 3 kilometers. To not take an elevator to my (4th) floor but to walk up. SinceContinue reading “JULY CHALLENGE | 10 000 steps a day”

What waking up earlier taught me

This year, I have decided to finish ten 30-days challenges, to improve my overall well being and introduce some good habits, while letting go of some of the bad ones. In May, the challenge was to wake up every morning at 6 AM. I know this must feel a bit ridiculous to those that areContinue reading “What waking up earlier taught me”

JUNE CHALLENGE | Reading an article a day

You can read all about my challenges in the original post where I listed all 10 that I am doing this year, and in this blog post, IContinue reading “JUNE CHALLENGE | Reading an article a day”

Why do I feel bad about feeling good?

This is one of those blog posts about self care during the pandemic. And about those that argue against those that write about self care during the pandemic. Its about learning new skills, taking time for yourself, feeling good but also about not feeling good. There are two types of content currently circling around myContinue reading “Why do I feel bad about feeling good?”
