PODCAST RECOMMENDATION – THE HIGHEST SELF PODCAST

I’ve discovered a new podcast that I really like, and I want to share it with you today! It’s all about Ayurveda, health and self-development and it’s called “The Highest Self Podcast” – created by Sahara Rose.

 

Hi everyone and welcome back here in 2019! 

It has been lovely with a little break off from blogging and Instagram, but now I’m back again with plenty of inspiration and I plan to post 2 blogposts every week. As always, just let me know if there is anything you want to read about. 
I want to start of with a new podcast I’ve discovered, which is really good and inspirering, so let’s get right into it! 

If you’re into Ayurveda or just health and self-development, then the ‘The Highest Self Podcast” by Sahara Rose is definitely a podcast I can recommend. Sahara Rose is a new upcoming leader in the Ayurvedic world and has even been named a “leading voice speaking to the millennial generation into the new paradigm shift” by Deepak Chopra himself (author of the book ‘Perfect Health‘). Sahara Rose is also the author behind the books ‘Idiot’s Guides to Ayurveda‘ and ‘Eat Right For Your Mind-Body Type Program’ , and her podcast is really great.

One of my favourite episode’s so far is the ‘How to Preserve Passion in a long-term relationship‘. That episode is really relatable for me, since I’ve been in a relationship with my boyfriend for almost 6 years, and from time to time it can get very everyday-ish, which is both really comfortable and lovely, but the lack of passion can certainly also be there. The podcast episode is a really good episode and it’s filled with so many good advice, for how to preserve passion in a long-term relationship.

 

Here are a few of the gold-quotes from the episode, that really resonated with me and inspired me:

“You need to communicate. Women often want men to read between the lines, but the man just see that the woman is angry, and if that continues over time without proper communication, the love and passion will disappear. We need to be brave enough to communicate, and express our wants, needs and desires

Only change that comes from yourself can last”

“When we dim our lights we are doing a disservice to others

 

I can for sure recommend listening to Sahara’s wise words, I’m sure you will find some inspiration from her. I’ve also just gotten her book ‘Idiot’s Guide to Ayurveda‘ in Christmas present, and I cannot wait to dive into it and learn a lot more about Ayurveda, because that is truly something I find so fascinating.

MY FAVOURITE PODCASTS ABOUT HEALTH AND SPIRITUALITY

Det er noget tid siden jeg har delt mine yndlings podcast, og dengang var det mere rent generelt. Nu har jeg fundet nogle nye favoritter, og da jeg for tiden er all-in-for sundhed, holisme og spiritualitet, så tænkte jeg at det kunne være interessant at dele mine yndlings podcast indenfor denne genre med jer. Og så passer det jo perfekt hertil weekenden! Selv skal jeg på arbejde hele weekenden, men det kan være at du har helt fri og kunne bruge et godt og inspirerende podcast til en god gå tur ude i naturen.

 

The Melissa Ambrosini Show

Denne her er efterhånden en gammel favorit, for jeg har efterhånden hørt med længe, og har også anbefalet podcastet flere gange herinde på bloggen. Men, hvis du ikke kender til det, så interviewer Melissa Ambrosini alverdens spændende mennesker og man får en masse ny og spændende viden. Især er der fokus på sundhed, men der kommer også emner som parforhold, selvudvikling og meget mere.

 

Awaken Radio

Denne her er en ny favorit. Podcastet er lavet af Connie Chapman (som forresten har den fineste Instagram profil!). Connie’s stemme er så dejligt beroligende, og dette podcast har også fokus på sundhed, men det har også et meget spirituelt fokus – hvilket jeg er elle vild med disse dage.

 

Everyday Ayurveda and Yoga at Hale Pule

Jeg er begyndt at være meget fascineret af Ayurveda (læs lidt mere om det her), og i dette podcast finder man information og hverdagstips til hvordan man kan implementere ayurvedaen i sin egen hverdag. Podcastet er lavet af Myra Lewin som er ayurvedisk udøver og er stifteren af Hale Pule som er et ayurveda og yoga skole.

 

The Spa Dr

The Spa Dr er også kendt som Dr. Trevor Cates, besvarer på spørgsmål omkring sundheds myter, interviewer spændende mennesker indenfor sundhedsfeltet og kommer med en masse tips og tricks til hvordan man kan passe bedst muligt på sin krop rent sundhedsmæssigt.


Hvis i har nogle gode podcasts indenfor samme genre, så må i endelig dele dem med mig, for jeg elsker at opdage nye gode podcasts!

English:

It’s been a while since I last shared my favourite podcasts, and at that time it was more podcasts in general. Now I’ve found some new favourites, and since I’m at the moment all about health, holistic and spiritual living, I thought it would be interesting to share some of my favourite podcasts within this genre with you. And it’s perfect here for the weekend! I have to work all weekend, but you might have a free weekend and could use a good and inspirational podcast to listen to while going for a walk outside in nature. 

 

The Melissa Ambrosini Show

This is an old favourite, which I’ve already shared several times on the blog. But, if you do not know about it, Melissa Ambrosini interviews a lot of different people and you get so much new knowledge. There is especially focus on health, but it also touches upon subjects such as relationships, self development and much more.

 

Awaken Radio

This is a new favourite of mine. The podcast is made by Connie Chapman (which btw has the most lovely Instagram account!). Connie’s voice is so soothing and calm, and this podcast has focus on health, but also a lot of spirituality – which I’m loving these days.

 

Everyday Ayurveda and Yoga at Hale Pule

I’ve become very fascinated with ayurveda (read more about it here), and in this podcast you get information and everyday tips and tricks on how to implement the ayurvedic lifestyle into your everyday life. The podcast is made by Myra Lewin which is an ayurvedic practitioner and the founder of Hale Pule which is an ayurveda and yoga school.

 

The Spa Dr

The Spa Dr is also known as Dr. Trevor Cates, and she answers questions about health myths, interviews exciting people within the health field and comes with a lot of tips and tricks on how to take care of your body and yourself in the best way. 

If you have any good podcasts within the same kind of genre, please share them with me, because I love discovering new amazing podcasts!

3 GOOD PODCAST EPISODES

Jeg ville lige dele nogle inspirerende podcast episoder som jeg har hørt i den pågældende uge, måske det kunne være noget for jer derude også.

1. The Melissa Ambrosini show  – Heal Your Gut Heal Your Life

Dette er en fantastisk episode som handler om vigtigheden af at have en sund og funktionel tarm, da dette er fundamentet for at vi har det godt rent sundhedsmæssigt. Det er enormt spændende, og bestemt noget jeg skal lære mere omkring. Men basically, så handler det igen om at spise sundt og sørge for at din krop får det den har behov for.

2. The Melissa Ambrosini show – The Pill, Periods and Fertility with Dr Nat Kringoudis

Denne episode handler om naturlig præventionsmetoder, istedet for at bruge p-pillen og andet hormonforstyrrende. Man kan gå nok så meget op i sin sundhed, men hvis man fylder sin krop med p-piller stort set hver dag, så er det lidt dobbeltmoralsk, og det er hertil at jeg er kommet til. Så pt. prøver jeg at lære så meget som muligt om mere naturlige præventionsmetoder, så jeg i fremtiden kan føle mig sikker ved at stoppe med at bruge p-piller, og derved kan gøre noget super godt for min krop.

3. Martiny Podcast – Soloshow / En karriere med klare mål eller flow? 

Denne episode handler om det med at skulle vælge karriere i sit liv, og hvilket enormt pres at man kan føle at det er, og tankerne om ‘man vælger det rigtige’. Jeg synes at Emma’s syn på dette er lige nøjagtig sådan at alle burde tænke – ikke stresse over noget, men at følge det der føles rigtigt for en. Mange fine tanker, og især et relevant podcast for unge mennesker der enten skal videre fra gymnasiet, eller fra en videregående uddannelse.

I wanted to share some good podcast episodes that I’ve been listening to this week, it might be something for you out there as well. 

1. The Melissa Ambrosini show  – Heal Your Gut Heal Your Life

This is an amazing episode which talks about the importance of having a healthy and functional gut, which is the fundament for us feeling well and healthy. It’s extremely exciting, and definitely something I want to learn more about. More basically, it’s about eating healthy and making sure that your body gets what it needs.  

2. The Melissa Ambrosini show – The Pill, Periods and Fertility with Dr Nat Kringoudis

This episode is about natural prevention methods, instead of using the birth control pill or other hormone disturbing things. You can care so much about your health, but then fill your body with birth control hormone pills almost everyday, that seems a bit contradictory, right? And that’s what I’ve come to. Therefore I’m currently learning more about natural prevention methods, so that I in the future can feel sure and secure with stop taking the birth control pill, and thereby do something which is so much better for my body.

3 GOOD PODCASTS

Er der noget jeg er blevet lidt fan af, så er det at høre nogle gode, interessante og lærerige podcasts. Man slapper af på en anden måde når man sætter sig til at høre et podcast, end når man ser tv eller videoer. Man kan lave sig en god kop te og bare sætte sig i sofaen og lytte til det, eller man kan tage høretelefonerne i ørene og begive sig ud på en tur i den friske luft.

Her er mine bud på 3 gode podcasts, som jeg syntes var værd at dele med jer.

1. Martiny Podcast – Emma Martiny 
Emma Martiny har jeg nævnt herinde førhen, og jeg har også lavet et lille interview med hende som I kan læse her. Men, Emma er simpelthen en af de mest inspirerende kvinder jeg kender, og hun gør sig nogle fantastiske tanker om alle mulige forskellige ting. Så det er en ren fornøjelse at få lov at lytte med i hendes tanker via hendes podcast. Første sæson af hendes podcast handlede meget om business, blogging og seje kvinder – det var super fedt! Nu er Emma lige kommet ud med første episode af 2. sæson af hendes podcast, som kommer til at omhandle det at leve et mere holistisk liv, og endnu mere af hendes tanker. Jeg kan kun sige at jeg glæder mig til at lytte med.

2. The Life Coach School – Brooke Castillo 
The Life Coach School podcast er levet af kvinden Brooke Castillo, som er forfatter og livsstils coach. Den kvinde er så inspirerende, og hun har lavet over hundrede episoder af sit podcast. Hun laver både podcast hvor hun interviewer andre inspirerende mennesker, og episoder hvor hun bare snakker og deler ud af sin viden, som hun har tilegnet sig. Der er så meget brugbart og lærerigt information at få via hendes podcast. Fokus ligger på livsstil og selvudvikling, som nok er nogle af mine absolutte yndlings emner at læse, lytte og lære om.

3. The School of Greatness – Lewis Howes 
The School of Greatness podcast er lavet af manden Lewis Howes. Han er tidligere professionel fodbold spiller, verdens atlet, og bare en super sej mand, som inspirere en til at blive ved med at udvikle sig, og blive bedre og bedre. Hans podcast er blevet ranket som værende i toppen af Self-Development podcast på iTunes. Lewis Howes interviewer også en masse inspirerende mennesker, og deler ud af sin egen viden omkring selvudvikling og meget andet.

Så er der vidst ikke så meget mere at sige, end på med hørebøfferne og lad noget inspiration og motivation flyde ind i jeres ører! Rigtig god dag!

If there is something I’ve become a fan of, it is to listen to some good and interesting podcasts. You relax in another way while listening to a podcast, than you do when watching tv or videos. You can make yourself a good cup of tea, sit in the couch and just listen to it, or you can pluck in your earphones and go outside in the fresh air and listen to it.

Here are my suggestions for 3 good podcasts, which I thought was worth sharing with you guys.

1. Martiny Podcast with Emma Martiny 
This podcast is made by an inspirering Danish woman named Emma Martiny. The podcast is in Danish, so no further need for explanation here.

2. The Life Coach School with Brooke Castillo
The Life Coach School podcast is made by the woman Brooke Castillo, which is an Author and lifestyle coach. That woman is so inspirering, and she has made over a hundred episodes of her podcast. Her podcast contains episodes where she talks with other inspirering people, and episodes where it is just her speaking and sharing her knowledge and wisdom. There is so much useful and clever information to gain from her podcast. Her main focus is within lifestyle and self development, which is probably two of my favourite topics to read, listen and learn about.

3. The School of Greatness with Lewis Howes
The School of Greatness podcast is made by the man Lewis Howes. He is a former professional football player, a world record athlete, and just a very cool man, which inspires one to development yourself and just become better and better. His podcast has been top-ranked within the Self-Development podcast category on iTunes. Lewis Howes both interviews inspirering people, and shares his knowledge about self development and much more.

Then there ain’t much else to say than pluck in your earphones and let the inspiration and motivation flow directly into your ears! Have a great day!

GROWTH MINDSET

Having a Growth Mindset can change your life completely. But you have to learn to see things differently, and think differently from what you have been used to, if you want to get this kind of mindset. Invest in yourself, keep learning, exploring and stay open-minded and life will turn into the most interesting adventure you have ever been on!

Fixed Mindset VS. Growth Mindset

A Fixed Mindset sees ourselves as static beings, like we can’t change how things are for us, our character, intelligence or creativity. However, a Growth Mindset thrives on challenge and views failure as new learning opportunities, and new ways of growth. Our entire life is defined by our mindset. Our relationship with success and failure determines our way towards happiness. If you keep seeing a failure as you being a failure and you get sad and miserable over it, this will affect your life. But, if you instead see failure as just another way to have learned something new, and a springboard towards success, your world-view will be entirely different.

How to Gain a Growth Mindset

  • Keep learning and exploring new things and ways of thinking. Read books, watch documentaries, talk to new people, listen to podcasts, go to new places
  • See failure not as a failure, but as an opportunity for growth and learning
  • Focus on the good things in life & the small joys
  • See life as Yin & Yang, everything is about balance. You need both in your life
  • Stop telling yourself limiting beliefs, instead go encourage yourself and talk yourself up
  • Another’s success does not mean that you cannot succeed. Learn to be happy about other people’s successes, and know that there is more than enough to go around for everyone

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – IDIOT’S GUIDES TO AYURVEDA

It’s time for the first book recommendation of 2019! The first book I read this year was “Idiot’s Guides to Ayurveda” by Sahara Rose. It’s all about what Ayurveda is, the three doshas, it contains an ayurvedic dosha test and so much more.

 

Speaking of books and reading, I’ve joined the ‘goodreads‘ site, it’s a site where you can keep track of all the books you’ve read and want to read. You can also make the ‘2019 challenge’ and put in how many books you want to read for the year and then add to the list every time you’ve finished a new book. I already wrote down the books I’ve read in a word document, but this is a bit more fun, so I can definitely recommend that! And now I can tick off the first book of the year: ‘Idiot’s Guides to Ayurveda’ by Sahara Rose.

You might remember the name Sahara Rose, because I already recommended her podcast ‘The Higher Self‘ in here. But Sahara is also the author behind the book ‘Idiot’s Guides to Ayurveda‘, if you are not familiar with the ‘idiot’s guides’ books, they are simply books explaining things in a very easy and understandable way.

So what’s it about?

Idiot’s Guides to Ayurveda is the perfect book if you are new to the concept of Ayurveda. Perhaps you’ve never even heard about this word before? Or maybe you just want to dive deeper into learning about your own dosha and how to balance it.

This book covers the basics of Ayurveda, the three doshas (vata, pitta and kapha), and Ayurvedic dosha test so you can find out of your primary and secondary doshas (I’m primarily vata, and my secondary dosha is pitta, but definitely most vata), how to balance your dosha both when it comes to food and lifestyle tips, ayurvedic self-care practices, all about the 5 koshas and the 7 chakras, good morning and night rituals, all about digestion according to ayurveda, ayurvedic home remedies and so much more!

I already knew a bit about Ayurveda and which dosha was my primary, but I’ve definitely learn a lot of new things by reading this book as well, so I will definitely recommend it if you are into holistic health, self development, growth, self-care practices and spirituality!

As always, if you have any good book recommendations, then please share them with me and everybody else below in the comments and let’s all inspire each other!

 

Ps, if you have taken an Ayurvedic dosha test then I’m curious, which dosha is your primary?

EVERYDAY HAPPINESS

It’s time to come back to some Everyday Happiness moments. I love seeing these posts at others blogs, and I really think it is such a lovely way to remember to take some pictures of the small, good things in life and be more grateful for even the smallest things <3

 

So, I want to start posting these kind of posts again, every Monday. I hope you’ll find some inspiration as well – either to do a little face mask and watch your favourite movie and relax, go and grab a cup of tea or coffee with your best friend, or go for a walk or to the movies with your family or your loved one. See this as an inspiration to sneak in some more moments in your everyday life that makes you happy – because that truly is what life is made of; the small little everyday things, so cherish these moments!

Our hallway in our apartment complex has been completely repainted and it has become so bright and pretty, I absolutely love it!

I had a Chai Masala tea with my mom and a little piece of brownie cake and just some mom-daughter-time. I love that <3

I’ve started in Fitness again! What a surprise, mainly for me. Last year I stopped in fitness because I was way too tired of fitness centres and the whole train-train-train mentality. But, lately I’ve just been feeling like really doing some energetic exercise and really get my pulse up, and sweating – so I’ve followed my body’s need and I’ve started in fitness again. And, I love it! I really feel SO good after getting a good sweat and getting a tomato-red-face. I, of course, still love yoga and stretching – and as my lovely boss says; it’s all about balance: yin & yang <3

There’s nothing better when the sun is shinning than a little walk around the lake and seeing the beautiful nature – and preferably with a good podcast in my ears!

I’ve always loved my family, but I think over the past years I’ve neglected my lovely big family a bit too much due to lots of work and school – but, I truly love my big family, and I love all the different personalities which I am so truly blessed to have in my life – and I really want to spend more time with them all <3 Here is a picture from last week where almost all the women from my mom’s side of the family had a Cinema trip. We watched ‘The Book Club’ (hilarious movie, and so sweet and loving!) and had dinner afterwards – such a great time!

THE BENEFITS OF WALKING

Did you know that you can improve your health simply by going for a walk? Inactivity is one of the biggest health threats to our society today. A simple way to combat this is simply to put one foot in front of the other and go for a walk. The benefits of walking is amazing, and this is what I want to share with you today!

 

Walking is such a simple thing, yet so effective when it comes to improving your overall health. I’ve previously written a blogpost about that ‘Sitting is the new smoking’, which you can read right here, which is all about how we in today’s society are way too inactive and spend too much time sitting, which is actually really harmful for our health.

And a way to combat sitting and being inactive – is simply, to go for a walk. Walking can actually help cleanse the lymphatic system – which is a system that helps to purify bodily fluids and improve your overall health. This system does not have a pump, and it is therefore necessary for the individual to maintain a regular amount of activity that will help move the lymph and cleanse the system. You can cleanse this system simply by engaging in 20-30 minutes walking – preferably outside in nature, since there is also a lot of benefits with being outside in nature; you get fresh air, you get some natural sunlight and just the visual of nature can be an instant mood lifter!

The Benefits of Walking

  • It boosts the immune function
  • It helps combat sugar cravings
  • It reduces risk of developing breast cancer
  • It can lower risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes
  • It strengthens your bones and muscles
  • It lifts your mood by releasing endorphins (the happy-hormone!)
  • It reduces the risk of depression and fatigue
  • It improves your posture
  • It can increase your creativity
  • It can improve your memory
  • It cleanses your lymphatic system

 

But, if walking doesn’t  sound like the funniest thing for you, then here is a few suggestions for how to spice it up and how to make walking a bit more fun! 

How to make walking more fun

  • Listen to a podcast or some good music while walking (my absolute favourite podcasts at the moment is The Food Medic, Martiny Podcast and Awaken Radio)
  • Go for a walk along with a friend and talk
  • Go outside in nature, in the forest or along the beach and enjoy the beautiful nature and fresh air
  • Drive to a beautiful place where you haven’t been before and go for a long walk, fx Møns Klint (I was there recently with my family and it was such a beautiful place)
  • You can also choose to make a little competition with your friends, children or whoever, about who can pick up most trash while going for a walk. A fun little game and such a nice little thing to do to keep the nature clean

How to sneak in more walking in your everyday life?

  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator to your work
  • Choose to walk instead of taking the bike or the car to the grocery store
  • Go for a walk with a friend instead of sitting down at a café. You can just bring your own to-go cups with you and either make your own coffee, tea or whatever, or you can ask to get your cup filled at a café

So, don’t you just feel like going for a walk right now? Or maybe you can suggest to your friend that the next time you are going to meet up that you can go for a walk instead of sitting at a café.
