Wake Up

My lovely yoga teacher Leta at YogaRocks mentioned the documentary Wake up in our teacher's course and out of curiosity I watched it as you can find it on Netflix. I think it was an interesting documentary mostly because of the main character's search for answers to his spiritual crisis. I like that he explores it through a wide range of people from scientists to mystics and different religions.

One thing that stuck in my mind after watching it was his encounter with the Buddhist monk, Roshi Joan Halifax, as she talks about the Collapse Opportunity, which is interesting also from an environmental point of view.




If there would be a system collapse, how would you react? Are you able to look at the inhumanity in the world today and not go numb?

New month, new possibilities

Been living in a bit of a limbo state for a while, February was not our greatest month. Our car was broken into and stuff stolen and destroyed for one thing. So we've had to deal with the challenge of living on the country-side without a car which has been a but of a challenge. What we learned though is that it is possible, but not without the help from friends, family and colleagues. (Thanks!)

However, little by little the puzzle-pieces are falling together, while other things are falling apart, it still leaves a clear trail of direction for the time being, March-Bring it on, we are ready for you!

Super Juice Me

The upside of being sick is that I gave some extra of time to read and watch things while resting. Yesterday I took time to watch the Super Juice Me documentary, recommended by a friend. It was indeed inspiring. I'm not sure I'm up for doing the whole 28 days living only on juice, but then again I don't have any health problems at the moment. However, the documentary did inspire me to do more juices at home, good thing I got a juicer for Christmas!

Saturday Reading


I've gotten a bit of a flu and decided that today is best to rest, what's better then than to have stumbled upon a really interesting article.

My Saturday reading  recommendation for you;

Why do many reasonable people doubt science?

5 months into no new clothes for a year

I haven't updated you for a while on the no new clothes for a year. Pre and during Christmas I was too busy to even considered that shopping for new clothes would be the thing to do.  I didn't miss any new outfits either, there was apparently enough Christmas outfits in my closet.

However, what I did get second-hand was a few more warm jumpers and I haven't regretted it! They are awesome and the best in winter to keep you warm. I had to do some stiches in all of my finds but after that they were as good as new.

Picture from here. Good post and tips on how to buy less.

Wildlife

Change the World Wednesday challenge is to go outside and find something you love. I took the easy way out and documented the birds from the window, mostly because they fly away when we go outside. When we are lucky we also see some squirrels from the window and a few times we have also seen a bunny and once a fox.

Being outdoors we also spot wildlife sometimes but it's a bit more difficult (especially with the dog around). Me and our dog like to look out the window, we are super lucky to have the forest just outside.

Just Eat It

Another documentary about Food Waste, which is a subject I care about a lot.



Just Eat It - A food waste story (Official Trailer) from Grant Baldwin on Vimeo.



Don't waste your food-Just Eat It! (Even though I realize that a lot of the food waste actually happens before the food even reach the customers which also this documentary seem to highlight).
