Things I've been loving
I’m back with lots of beautiful, positive stuff. In these articles, I focus purely on what I love. No moaning or complaining: just the beautiful things in life, inspiring articles and videos, photos that move me and books I adore. Let’s bring the blog back to life. Are you coming along?
Watch: The surprisingly charming science of your gut by Giulia Enders on TED
I love how she explains the gut in such an easy-to-understand way, and the way she links the gut to the brain.
Three major things in my life right now
I will devote entire articles on this, but I already wanted to share these three major things with you:
I stopped nursing after 18 months and my son actually survived and is still a very happy boy, even though it was my choice to end our breastfeeding journey.
I got my first period in what feels like forever. I love periods. I lived without a period for a long time, so I simply love everything about my flow. Before this cycle, my last cycle was when I got pregnant, over 2 years ago.
I went on a 48-hour trip without my child. We both survived.
New yoga classes coming up at Sanga Yoga
Sanga Yoga is my dream come true. I’m so happy that Theresa and I found each other last year and that we built Sanga Yoga together. We’re launching a couple of new pregnancy yoga classes and postnatal yoga classes in Oslo soon, so keep an eye out on our Facebook page if you want to join us. I teach the postnatal classes, and Theresa is your teacher if you sign up for our prenatal courses.
Listen: Gobinday Mukunday (by Jai Chand + Grayson)
This song. On repeat. All day long. I love this version, created by Jai Chand and Grayson.
Read: Moods of Motherhood - The inner journey of Mothering (by Lucy H. Pearce)
This book is so honest, real and pure, and so important. I wish every mother would read it and realize that we’re all doing the best we can. Motherhood might be the most beautiful thing in the whole world, but it can also be extremely hard at times, and Lucy Pearce helps us understand that we’re never alone. I read her book on the plane to the Netherlands and it filled me with gratitude and the important realization that I have to keep nurturing myself to be able to nurture my family.
Watch: Our Planet
We started watching Our Planet last night and I fell in love with it. This is more than beautiful nature videos. This is about the importance of our planet and that we have to treat her well, in everything we do. Super inspiring.
