It is amazing how your friends and family have such an impact on your personal life, and how you together fill your life with happenings. They inspire you to try new things, they love you no matter what and they help you go in the right direction when feeling lost. But what I like the most is how they actually can change your daily routine and bring new things into it. A couple of years back, I would never believe that…

Out of sync time to rest

Now and then through our journey in life, our body and mind are out of sync. Your body and your mind are not aligned in their thinking and feeling. The other day I experienced this when my brain worked overtime, but my body said go to bed or I will fall a sleep on this keyboard, right here, right now. Whenever the body and mind is out of sync, I experience it so much harder to feel complete and accomplish whatever it concerns.

Run together

Now and then I feel that it is hard to find motivation and energy to complete something, it could be anything. This feeling permeates my day-to-day life; it comes to me at work when trying to do something creative, preparing a presentation or taking a decision outside my comfort zone. Naturally this feeling also comes to me when I am out running. So I am wondering, how can we keep up a good work ethic when our motivation is low?

The first week of training since I decided to run the Stockholm Marathon has gone by. It is truly amazing how one goal could have such an impact on my training routines. The month before I signed up to the race, I had not completed even one single run. But now not even a week goes by without several work outs… And I am feeling great!

Stockholm Marathon 2017

Most of us have experienced getting into a special state of mind, where we forget about all obligations that we have. We forget about work and day-to-day stress. Maybe you have a big presentation coming up or a family situation that puts weight on your shoulders. Then you seek to these places where you could focus on just being you, find your inner self and relax. I experience this mindfulness when I am out running, especially longer runs, which is why I have decided to run Stockholm Marathon again this year.

Who is with me?!

I just came back home from my new favorite place to be, South Africa. Wow, what a lovely country with its coastline, friendly people, a jungle filled with wild animals and the city pulse in the one and only Cape Town. South Africa offers an incredible variety of things to do. With this, I come to realize that I will never become complete; I will always experience new things about myself and about my life. In this regard I believe as long as I experience new things the journey of defining myself will never reach an end.

business meeting

If someone invites you to a lunch meeting and then don’t offer any food, then that someone, is evil. When I’m hungry I need food right away, I lose my focus, I get nauseous, my mind goes blank and I turn all sweaty… you name it. In addition to that, my stomach starts making loud noises, like it is screaming out for food; Mathyyyy give me something, pleaseeeeee! So, I don’t have any choice, I need to get a fruit from the fruit basket standing on the middle of the table. It is always a little bit too far away, I need pull out my chair, and stretch over my colleague to reach, every time it’s the same story… and everyone will obviously understand that it is my stomach that is making noises. But once I get there, which fruit should I choose to eat in front of everyone in the middle of a business meeting?

engagement

Butterflies in my stomach, a smile as big as Julia Robert’s, a warm feeling spread trough my veins when my Jacob asked me to marry him. In that moment love was stronger than everything else, because I knew I that I would spend the rest of my life with my fantastic Jacob.

When I was younger and still a student, I often thought about how my future workplace would be like. One important criteria was that to be able to do my work, I needed to travel for some reason… And yes, sometimes I took this thought a little bit too long and imagined myself travelling to cities like New York, London, Berlin or why not the south of Europe so I could get some tanning in between the meetings. I remember that every time someone told me that their work required them to visit offices, partners, owners or other stakeholders around the globe, I just thought that it must be so interesting to meet different people, experience other cultures and visit new places. I never thought there could be any downsides. So the answer to the question if travelling for work is hot or not, was of course hot! right?

Looking out over East River from Manhattan

Sometimes when I’m waiting for my favorite training class Bodycombat to begin, I start staring at people in the gym-section. Thinking to myself about if there is a minimum-level of muscle mass to get a permission to use the machines? Now it sounds like I’m flirting and trying to pick someone up, but that’s not the case! It is just that when I try to use the machines, I feel like a lost puppy. When it comes to training, is it expected that runners also know their way around at the gym?
