Winter skin – ageing

My skin has kind of given up. It seems like no moisturizer in the world can deal with my skin right now. Unfortunately I live we’re the sun barely raise during the winter months and even if we do get moist weather “wet and damp” it is no good for my poor skin.

I become extra dry with itchy red spots all over. It is like I am constantly allergic to everything. I definitely fells more at ease during the summer. I believe the vitamin D together with the sun gives the skin all it needs

So how can we deal with the issues? Well going from nice perfumed body lotions to pure jojoba oil. No need to buy the expensive perfume body lotion when all my body is longing for is oil.

Pure oil in such a natural form as possible is what it craves. Even though my skin is really itchy and dry, I still exfoliating almost on a daily base. I exfoliate in the shower and make sure I put on oil straight after the shower when my skin is still damp.

I can see that my skin is not as plump and moist as it use to be, and I need to nurture it in a different way these days. Inside out.

Over all, I need to take care of me in a different way nowadays. Give my self some needed TLC !

What is your skin secret?

Adding years to a better you

Are you healthy or not? Do you care or really not? Are you in the game or hopelessly lost? Are you making sure you get the best there is for your body and soul?

Taking care of yourself is the best gift you can ever give yourself. Not only caring about your health but also your mind. Filling it with good thoughts and happy memories. Trigger it with challenges and changes. Give it love every day.

But we all know that life is not always pink and fluffy, it’s sometimes dark or at least grayish. That’s why it’s even more important to overfill yourself with good vibes those days your life feels extra good.

Try at least try to make the best out of every day. If that means sitting around doing absolutely nothing then that is what you should do.

Life passes quickly, fill it with good positive people, educate yourself everyday. Share knowledge to others, be friendly, be curious. Spoil your body and mind every day.

I promise it will add years to your life.

Stronger!

The older I get, the stronger I become- Inside. I feel better then I have felt in years and that is because I am being more relaxed to the outside world. I don’t need to prove anything to anyone anymore. I don’t need to say yes, if I don’t want that.

I am not perfect in anyway but I am happy with what I got, what I have accomplished over the years and most of all I am happy to be the person I am today.

So yes, you still need to work on yourself but in the meantime don’t forget to stop and look how far you have come. How wonderful life can be if you give it the right thoughts. Become the person want to become.

Give your self a mission and follow it. You will blossom, I promise. Love yourself and keep feeding yourself with good thoughts.

And yes, work on your physique as well, to keep mind and body in balance ⭐️

Super smart aging

I hope 🤞 that you have gone through life with a large share of happiness and some must needed struggles. I see all struggles as a a part of the school of life. And most of all I see it as a sort of wake up call to guide you back to the path- you are meant to walk.

With age comes smartness in the sense of what you can actually contribute to the world 🌎. When you are young, you have a different set of drive and fearlessness, this is the best time to explore that! Hopefully you have tried everything that came your way, and dared to let your fantasies run wild.

As you are getting older a different set of responsibilities emerge, responsibilities mostly towards others. And with that comes limitations of course, but also a lot of love and happiness.

So how do you age smart? Well use your knowledge and spread it to others. You have gain so much wisdom during your life, it’s time to spread it. What stopping you? And with that, you should also live your life with dignity and respect.

Respecting yourself is crucial. Take care of yourself in all ways. You know by now what you enjoy – priorities that. You have earned it. Help others without it being a burden- see what your help actually provides to others. it’s actually proven that helping others maintain your sense of belonging which is such an important health indicator when becoming older.

Body and mind go hand in hand, always remember that and if you treat your body as a temple and your mind as a GOD, you will age smartly . With happiness comes beauty in all ways.

Staying body and mind sharp through menopause

I know it´s a topic that have mixed feelings, some of us dread the menopause approach some of us enjoy it. Yes, you are getting older, and it marks the end of youth and fertility in a way. However it also mark the beginning of something new- a stronger better you!

Hormons – or the lack of them or actually the change of the hormonal mix, will leave you with a different mind and body. Make sure to eat optimal eat natural not precessed food. Sleep for example, always have had an issue with sleep, never ever was a sound sleeper. I sleep for 6,5 to 7 hrs tops, that is for me a good night sleep. But most of all the biggest change for me has been my mind. I have become allot stronger mentally. I do have periods where I have felt a bit lost and not really recognize myself.

It´s time to take care of body and mind and most of all create a balance between them. Stop pressuring yourself to much and let go of negative influences. I seldom listen to the news and by choice keep an positive attitude. Not always easy, I feel a lot of people have a negative attitude form the get go, constantly thinking negative thought, regardless were they are in life.

I have set a couple of goals to maintain and create a better future or a future that I want. I going in to a new phase in life. First of is your mind, are you happy with your life? Is this were you picture your self 10 years ago? If not, what is strategy for removing yourself from your current state?

Second your body, I am currently working on my body, nutrition and exercise, to be able to reach my goal I need to change, change my way of thinking, and that is the hardest part, old habits die hard, especially thinking habits.

Reflection – body and mind

New beginning 👉🏻setting goals

Life has given me a lot of heads up and learnings the last couple years. It’s finally time to work on them.

3 areas that needs to be in harmony for everything to work out. I see setbacks as a reminder sent from life itself to get your act together and move towards your own goals. Be strong enough to stand up for your own inner hopes and thoughts, not someone else’s 👉🏻 yours and yours only.

Working on a detailed plan is a must👉🏻 just to remind you on where you are going.

My areas of plans are.

  • Business 👉🏻 still have plenty of more work time in me, don’t believe in retirement at the age of 40 unless you have another for filling purpose. The plan is in making the focus now is moving forward regardless
  • Body 👉🏻 nutrition, health and anti-aging, not that I am afraid of getting older. I just want to be the best version of me, a bit leaner and detoxed.
  • Me 👉🏻this being the most critical, I need to work on me to be able to work on the rest❤️

Stay younger – fitness routine

I am approaching 50, and I am a mother of 4. In my mind I am closer to 25, but my body and skin is not. I want to stay healthy and still look great without overdoing anything. I believe in balance, I am not going to give up life, just to stay “young”. 

Raised in a family where sports was a part of everyones life, we were always active, from downhill skiing to using our bikes to travel to and from school, the city, friends. I have always been busy. In my late 20th up to 45 running was my passion. No long distance, my longest run ever was a half marathon.

Lately my body is not as keen to run anymore, and I believe in listening in on my body. Today I might run once a week, lift weight once a week and do short 20-25 minutes yoga flow sessions (in the morning) 4-5 times a week. I have added Yoga in to my practice, for the flexibility it gives me and not to forget the deep breathing.. I still use my bike daily – everywhere I go.

And yes, nothing is for free and the older you get the harder you have to work. No short cuts, next up I will talk about diets, and no diets.
