Tomorrow it’s time – after a break of almost four months, my second year at uni starts!!
I can’t believe I’ve been here for over a year now, and it feels really good.

I’m feeling so freaking motivated about going back to Uni. I even got my motivating pens. My friend asked me; Penny, what exactly is a motivating pen?
Well, wouldn’t you like to know.
This year we’re gonna go more in to the nutrition part, finally. When people have asked me what we’ve learned this last year I haven’t really known what to answer. The periodic table? Cause it was mostly science my first year.
This semester I’m doing Food studies, Principles of nutrition, Introduction to behavioral health and Challenges to mental health. So exciting!!

And I’m gonna keep my motivating attitude throughout this semester. And I do this by surrounding me with an awesome group of people, planning my timetable wisely (well, let’s see how that goes), focusing on things that makes me happy. And of course, my motivating pens.

I’m gonna keep you posted about how everything goes.
Until then, do what makes you happy. Why else would you do it?

 

 

Acroyoga 2.0

And the end of last year I started doing yoga at this amazing yoga studio here in Mooloolaba, called Yoga Vida. I love the energy there and the teachers are really good.
When I lived in Sweden I had a really hard time getting into yoga, which I never did, cause I always got so irritated or annoyed, it was like something was crawling under my skin and I couldn’t relax. And now I’ve learnt that that feeling was probably a sign – I needed yoga the most at that time.
Then I moved here and I thought I’d might give it ago again. And now I’m hooked.
People may think that yoga is not a as hard of a workout compared to going to the gym. But I disagree,  yoga gives you so much, I’ve discovered a couple of things about myself since I started with yoga.
I’m the worst at being in the moment, I’ve now started to notice that I sometimes just zone out when people talk to me. I just don’t listen, and then I have to ask them to repeat it to me, which is very disrespectful.
I’m not using my breathing to the best of my capacity, and I believe that deep breathing helps the body to heal. That is why one of my new years resolutions were to focus more on my breathing – so next weekend I’m going to a breathing workshop at the yoga studio and I’m so excited!

It’s funny, when I went to high school I knew this girl, we were actually not friends, we just used to hang with the same people.
And when I moved here, to Australia, she shot me a message on Facebook saying she lives here as well, like an hour from me. And this lovely person, Frida, is a yoga student and she is an amazing yogi and also really good at Acroyoga. So at the end of last week she came and visited me and along with her and her two friends Fiia and Henniina I tried on some  Acroyoga for like my third time. These girls are absolutely amazing at this and I’m just a newbie, but it was so much fun! I just need to practice more, cause it’s really hard!
I only know this pose but I have to say that I’m nailing it.
