15 THINGS TO DO AT HOME

While we’re in these strange times of isolation and quarantine, many of us might find ourselves getting bored or feeling restless. But there are plenty of things you can do, and therefore I want to share 15 things to do at home. Just for pure inspiration if you need some ✨

15 Things To Do at Home

Tidy up & Organise your Home
Spring is here, and there’s really no better time than now to do a proper Spring Cleaning! So why not Marie-Kondo your entire home, and get rid of the things that no longer brings you joy, clean your space and rearrange your furniture’s? I’ve already started and I’m already feeling better and better for every room I get cleaned and organised.

Paint
You could paint a picture, or you can paint a wall! I just ordered some painting in a beautiful nude colour the other day and this coming week I’ll be painting one of the walls in my living room to spice up the interior a bit. I’m also thinking about painting some pictures for the wall as well.

Go for Walks (if allowed)
Depending on where you live in the world, I know that the may or may not be a possibility at the moment. For those of you who live in countries where this is still fully allowed – get out and get some fresh air, move your body and be extremely grateful for the ‘simple’ thing we used to take for granted such as going for walks outside, because this simple thing has been limited for people around the globe. I know that I’ll never take this simple act for granted ever again



Try out a new Recipe
Why not try out some delicious new recipes? It could be a lovely desert, snack or a delicious dinner recipe that you’ve been wanting to try forever but never really found the time to try out – now is the perfect time!

Read Books
Of course this has to be on the list, one of my absolute favourite activities – reading! If you need some book inspiration, then just search for ‘book’ at my blog and you’ll find tons of recommendations.



Make a Home Spa Day
We have more time at home, why not make a Home Spa day (or days?). Make a footbath, put on a facemask, dry brush your body, use your gua sha and give yourself a face massage. Make your own body butter, or put on a hair mask. Take time for yourself and take good care of yourself during these times

Write down your Dreams & Goals
If you haven’t already started to write down your dreams and goals, why not use this time to get clear with yourself – what do I really want in life? What do I dream of? Dream big, as Noell says it “The Sky Isn’t your Limit, Your Mind is!” (I absolutely love this). For this practice you can also go and download my free printable PDF files where you can write down your Year & Quarterly Goals



Write Letters to Your Friends and Family
I got a letter the other day, an actual letter from one of my best friends and it was the best thing ever! I mean, how often do we get actual letters these days? Not that often anymore. Let those around you know that you love them and think about them by writing them a letter

Tea & FaceTime
Netflix & Chill might still be a thing, but the newest trend is “Tea & FaceTime”. Make yourself a cup of tea and make a FaceTime date with your best friends, or your family members, and just sit and talk and connect and have a good time. I’ve said it so many times during this lockdown that how fortunate are we to live in a time where we need to ‘social distance’ ourselves, but we have the technology to be able to connect all the time if we want to

Start an At-Home-Workout Routine
Again, thank you technology! When we can’t go to the gym, yoga study or wherever we usually go to, we’re so lucky that there are thousands of workout videos to find on Youtube or Instagram. You can find long Yoga session videos, or 20 minutes hard-core ab workout routines. So why not get into a good routine of moving your body!

Make a Visionboard
Use this time at home to dream and make yourself a vision board! You can either make a physical one, or you can create a vision board on Pinterest. Just find pictures of how you want to feel and be, and what you want to do! Seeing your dreams in visuals is one of the best things ever, and can really life your mood!



Journal about Your Thoughts – or Talk to a Friend
I know these times can be very anxious, and I’ve for sure felt that as well. You think about the state of the world, the economy, your job situation, you and your family’s health. There’s so much to think about and it’s easy to get caught up in worry and anxiety in these times. Know that there’s absolutely nothing wrong in feeling this way, and you should allow your emotions to be there and feel them – but a good suggestion is to get your fears and worries out of your head. Write them down in a journal, or call a friend and talk about things. Often times, all the things we build up in our heads aren’t as bad, when we just get them out of there

Watch Good Movies
Relax and rest, and put on a good movie. I mean Disney or Harry Potter marathon is completely allowed, so go for it! Make yourself a cup of tea, cuddle up under your duvet and just relax and enjoy it.

Make a Puzzle
Whether you’re an adult or have kids, making puzzles is the perfect activity! It’s such a relaxing and cozy activity to spend time on

Play Games
Right alongside with playing a puzzle, if you have some games at home, then why not play those. Yatzy, Bagammon, Ludo, Uno etc.

What have you been doing during this quarantine? What has been your favourite way to spend your time? And what have you learned to appreciate even more because of this current situation? ✨

THE BENEFITS OF MEDITATION

I’ve been incorporating meditation into my morning practice more and more during the last couple of months. Not only do I feel amazing, there are lots of good reasons to do it. Therefore I want to talk the benefits of meditation 🙏✨

During the last couple of months I’ve added a little meditation into my morning routine, and it feels amazing. Meditating is such an easy way to start your day in a calm and relaxing way. I do different types of meditations, sometimes I just put on some very relaxing music on youtube while meditating, other days I go for a guided meditation and sometimes I put on some positive affirmations (read by Louise Hay) while meditating.

Not only is it a soothing and relaxing practice, there are actually many health benefits to gain from meditating, and that’s what I want to share with you today.

Benefits of Meditation

Reduces Stress

Can Help Control Anxiety

Can Lead to Better Emotional Health & Well-Being

Improves Your Concentration

May Improve Your Memory

Improves Your Happiness

Improves Sleep

Can Reduce Blood Pressure

Strengthens the Immunesystem

Reduces Depression

Have you gotten inspired to start meditating? As with all things, whenever you need to implement new habits – remember to make it easy and simple for yourself. Don’t expect yourself to go from never meditating to suddenly meditating for 20-30 minutes every single day. Start small. Try meditating 3-5 minutes every morning for a month.

Then overtime you can always increase how long you meditate. But start small – and remember, it is something you do for yourself. Think about that every time you sit down, think about how you’re doing a good thing for yourself and your mental health and well-being 🙏✨

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – BREAKING THE HABIT OF BEING YOURSELF

If you are into meditation and how to use your thoughts and frequencies to create a new reality for yourself, then you’re going to absolutely love this book! The book Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself by Dr. Joe Dispenza

This book is all about how you can use meditation and going into your subconscious mind to recreate yourself. It’s so fascinating, and Joe Dispenza really dives deep into how we can use meditation on a whole other level.

What I really love about the book is how he describes it, with facts and figures and everything and explains wave lengths and frequencies of the brain. It’s really taking meditation and working with your subconscious mind to a whole other level, and it really is ‘mind-blowing’ so to say.

He highlights the fact that if you want to change your life, you can only do so by first becoming aware of what it is about your current life/reality that you do not like. You can become aware of this by meditation and be consciously paying attention to yourself and your own thoughts and behaviours. From here, you can then start to work on replacing your current reality with a new one.

It’s so fascinating, and it has already given me an even bigger boost to dive even more into my meditation routine. I’m currently following the 4-week program that is at the end of the book, and I’m so excited about diving further into my own subconscious mind.

Quotes from the book:

“We have, within our reach, all we need to make significant changes in our lives”

“The true purpose of meditation is to get beyond the analytical mind and enter into the subconscious mind so you can make real and permanent changes”

“What you think and believe has a profound effect on your world”

“We communicate with the quantum field primarily through our thoughts and feelings”

“If your thoughts determine your reality, and you keep thinking the same thoughts (which are a product and reflection of the environment), then you will continue to produce the same reality day after day”

Have you read any interesting books lately? As always, I would love to hear about it! Or perhaps you’ve already read this book? Then let me know, what are your thoughts about it?

GLOBAL MASS MEDITATION

In these times, sending out loving and good thoughts can do more than we are even aware of. Take part in the Global Mass Meditation on April 4/5, 2020. Let’s spread the light 🙏✨

I got aware of this event through Jill on Instagram (which I btw will highly recommend following if you’re into spirituality, growth, meditation etc.), and I thought it was such a beautiful initiative, that I highly want to support and take part in myself.

The event is a Global Mass Meditation that will happen on April 4/5, 2020. The idea is to heal the world from the current virus we’re affected by. Whether you believe in the concept of healing or not, I still find the concept of sending all the love and health out into this world, to be a beautiful thing.

What we focus on grows. I’ve said it many times, and I completely believe this. What we give our attention to is what will grow.

I will for sure take part in this, and meditate during this weekend with a focus on sending love, health and healing out into this world. I hope you will take part in this as well. Send me a message on Instagram, or comment below, if you want to join this beautiful event as well – let’s light up this world 🙏✨

Ps, if you find it hard to meditate in complete silence, I recommend searching for ‘Binaural Beats’ on Youtube and you can find the most beautiful pieces of music to listen to while meditating, which can also help to elevate your frequency ✨

WHAT ARE ANTIOXIDANTS? + A DELICIOUS BERRY SMOOTHIE RECIPE

I guess you have probably heard the word antioxidants before, but have you ever looked into what they really are? Today I want to go into what are antioxidants? Why are they so good for you? + give you a delicious berry smoothie recipe filled with those good antioxidants 🍌🍓🌿🙌✨

When looking at what Antioxidants are, we first need to look into something called free radicals. Free radicals are waste produced by cells as the body processes food in reaction to the environment. If the body can’t process and get rid of free radicals efficiently, then oxidative stress can occur – and this can harm cells and how the body functions.


There are several factors that increase the production of free radicals in the body, it can fx be internal in form of an inflammation – this can be caused by eating too much processed and sugary foods, or it can be external, such as pollution, UV exposure or cigarette smoke.

As you can hear, we don’t really want too many of these free radicals and the oxidative stress in our body.

And this is where antioxidants come into the picture! Antioxidants are substances that can prevent or slow damage to cells that have been caused by free radicals.

The body itself does produce some antioxidants, but you can also get more antioxidants into your body through the food that you eat.

So if you want to have a healthy, fresh body, and beautiful skin, starting from within by eating more antioxidants is a good place to start.

Good food sources of antioxidants include;
– Eggplants
– Legumes
– Green Tea
– Red Grapes
– Dark chocolate
– Pomegranates
– Blueberries
– Apples
– Broccoli
– Spinach
– Lentils

DELICIOUS ANTIOXIDANT RICH BERRY SMOOTHIE RECIPE

  • 1 banana
  • ½ avocado
  • 4cm ginger
  • 1 citrus
  • a handful of frozen raspberries
  • a handful of frozen blueberries
  • ricemilk to cover
  • hemp seeds

    + Extra: I also add 3 teaspoons of lecithin granulate and a few teaspoons of an oil blend (‘Kvinde Olie’ – Oil of Life) to the smoothie as well to get some more healthy fats in there

HOW TO STRENGTHEN YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

The best we can do to fight cold, flus and virus is to strengthen our immune system. So, today I want to share how to strengthen your immune system 🍋🌿✨

The state of the world is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. What you can personally do for your own health, and to protect others as well, is to take better care of your immune system. Of course there is the hygienic aspect – to remember to wash your hands regularly, cough into your shirt instead of your hands etc. But to prevent yourself from catching any cold, flu or virus, the best thing you can do is to strengthen your immune system.

Your immune system defends your body from foreign, invading organisms, promoting protective immunity while maintaining tolerance to self.

Today I want to share with you, several ways in which you can strengthen your own immune system.

Ways to Strengthen Your Immune System


Eat more Ginger & Garlic
To fight off any bad bacteria or virus, one thing we can do is to eat more antimicrobial foods. Foods such as ginger and garlic have high antimicrobial properties that is effective against bacteria. So when cooking, make sure to use more of these foods, to help strengthen your immune system.

Eat Vitamin C Rich Food or Take a Supplement
Vitamin C has an effect on the body’s immune system and protects against vira and bacteria. A good idea to strengthen your immune system, is therefore to eat more vitamin C rich food, and take a good vitamin C supplement.

Vitamin C rich food include thing such as; citrus fruits, kiwis, berries, tomatoes, cauliflower and leafy greens.

Take a Vitamin D Supplement
Many people, especially in the Northern countries were we go many months without seeing the sun can become deficient in vitamin D. Vitamin D is the vitamin you usually get through sun exposure. Deficiency in vitamin D is associated with increased autoimmunity and an increased susceptibility to infections. Therefore, taking a vitamin D supplement, especially during the Winter if you live in countries with less sun exposure, can be a very good idea.

Take a Probiotic Supplement & Eat Fermented Food
2/3 of the immune system is located in the gut. All disease begins in the gut. Make sure to start treating your gut right. Your gut health is affected by the food you eat. You can better the health of your gut by eating more veggies and fermented food. You can also support your gut health by taking a good probiotic supplement, to get more good bacteria in your gut. By strengthening your gut health, you’ll strengthen your immune system.

Drink Lots of Water & Herbal Teas
To work properly, we need water. We need to be hydrated. Our bodies consist of around 60% water. We need it for our body to function well. Drink more water and drink lots of herbal teas. Specifically you can go for herbal teas with ginger and turmeric, to strengthen the immune system, or a green tea filled with antioxidants.

Eat More Fruit & Veggies
Food is Medicine. This has been said for thousands of years, and now really is the time to embrace this – now more than ever. What you fuel your body with will determine how well your body will function for you. When you fuel your body with all the colours of different fruits and veggies, you get a whole range of different vitamins and minerals – which is exactly what your body need to function at its best. Fuel your body. Use food as medicine, by giving your body the best so it can work for you.

Move Your Body
Move your body, go for walks. By moving your body you activate your lymphatic system. Your lymphatic system gets rid of toxins from your body. So the simple act of going for a walk, will activate this system – and the less toxins that are in your system, the easier your immune system will function. Go out and get some fresh air and go for a walk.

Relax & Slow Down
Stress weakens the body’s immune system. So even though these times can be hard and full of uncertainty and insecurity, stressing about it does not help. Take time to relax and slow down. Meditate. Take some deep breaths. Go for a walk. Read a good book. Slow everything down.

WHAT WE FOCUS ON GROWS

What we focus on grows. Let’s focus on what we want more of, not what we worry about. Let’s spread more love and kindness, and use this time to slow down, and rest and relax 🙏✨

I completely believe this. What we focus on grows. Within the last few weeks the world has been taken by storm of the corona virus. It has gone so quickly. But with the amount of attention that it gets, of course it spreads even faster.

By worrying and stressing about the situation, you’re lowering your immune system, and are thereby also more vulnerable of getting the virus. Instead, we need to change our focus.

I already think many have, yesterday I felt fear and worry, but today I feel more and more love and support for others. It is beautiful to watch people stick together and show love and support.

Let’s focus on that. Let’s focus on how we can help and support each other. Let’s focus on showing and giving love. Let’s take the time off to rest and relax.

Focus on what you want to grow.

5 Ways to Grow More Love Instead of Fear

  1. Meditate
    Meditation helps you to slow down, and focus on your breathing. Put on some calming music or a guided meditation, and take time to slow down.
  2. Breathe
    Breathing is what we need to do. Breath in fresh oxygen, this is vital for your entire system and well-being. It also relaxes the body.
  3. Show Love & Be Supportive
    Offer your help and support to those who need it. Buy groceries for your grandma, ask your neighbour if they need help with anything etc. Let’s show all the love and support that we can – what we send out, we get back, always remember that.
  4. Practice Self-Care
    Perhaps you’ve been told to stay at home for the next 2 weeks, and you’re a person who always go-go-go from one thing to the next, and have a hard time taking care of yourself? Now is the time. Slow down & take time for some self-care.
  5. Take time to Rest & Relax
    Again, our society is so used to this go-go-go mentality. So look at this time as a change to get down in gear. Slow down. Relax. Rest.
    When was the last time you had no plans? When was the last time you were fully in the moment? Use this time to slow down and take care of yourself, and others.

THE BENEFITS OF DRINKING GREEN TEA

I’ve been drinking Green Tea for the past 8 years ever since I once read about all the benefits of drinking Green Tea. Not only is drinking a cup of tea delicious and comforting, but it is also so beneficial for your health as well, that’s what I absolutely love about it! 🍵🌿

If you aren’t already drinking green tea, then I want to give you tons of reasons in this blogpost for why to get started with this! Green tea is filled with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body.

I have been drinking at least 1-2 cups of green tea pr. day for the past 8 years. I remember reading about the benefits of it in high school, and then I just got started on it. Nowadays, it just ain’t as good a day if my mornings doesn’t start with my cup of green tea.

My little life motto goes like this; “A cup of green tea a day, keeps the doctor away”

But let’s get into the fun part, about all the amazing benefits that this tea has!

Benefits of Drinking Green Tea

  1. Green Tea Helps Reduce Inflammation & Fight Cancer
    Green Tea is rich in polyphenols, which helps to reduce inflammation in the body and can help to fight cancer
  2. Green Tea Increases Fat Burning & Improves Physical Activity
    Some studies have shown green tea to increase fat burning, and caffeine itself has been shown to improve physical performance.
  3. Green Tea Can Kill Bacteria, which Improves Dental Health and Lowers Your Risk of Infection
    The catechins in green tea can kill bacteria and inhibit viruses. Green tea consumption is associated with improved dental health and a lower risk of caries.
  4. Green Tea may Lower Your Risk of Type 2 Diabetes
    Type 2 diabetes involves having elevated blood sugar levels and being insulin resistant, or having an inability to produce insulin. Studies have shown that green tea can improve insulin sensitivity and can reduce blood sugar levels.
  5. Green Tea may Reduce Your Risk of Cardiovascular Disease
    Cardiovascular Diseases include things such as heart disease and stroke. Studies have shown that green tea can improve some of the main risk factors for these kind of diseases.
  6. Green Tea can Help Reduce Signs of Ageing, it Promotes Longevity and it Helps Reduce Sun Damage
    Green tea has strong antioxidants, which helps to fight inflammation. Green tea can help inhibit oxidative stress and the potential inflammation that might come from it. Green tea are also rich in an anti-ageing antioxidant, known as EGCG, which helps fight wrinkles by increasing cell turnover.

    With all those health benefits I’d say; no wonder why green tea has become very popular! And if you like the taste, then I would say go drink more of this healthy tea!

I’m curious to know, have you already jumped on the Green-Tea-Wagon? Or has this post perhaps inspired you to wanting to try it out? A little tip is that some pure green tea can be a bit bitter in the taste, so if you want, then you can go for green tea with lemon, those are my personal favourites 🍵🌿

WHERE MY INTEREST FOR HOLISTIC HEALTH COMES FROM

I want to share with you, where my interest for Holistic Health comes from. This journey has involved all from digestive issues, to a weak immune system to skin issues. But it has all led me to where I am today 🌿✨

What I personally love about following people who shares about fx how to fix health problems, is to follow people who have been through it themselves. Because then you really know that they have been through the same struggles as you, and that they have really done the work and experimented themselves with what works and what doesn’t.

My Personal Health Story

Growing up I had lots of digestive problems and stomach aches during my childhood. And it was for sure something that was interrupting my life, as it was both painful, but also very frustrating that I never really knew when and why these stomach problems was happening.

Weak Immune System

Fast forward into my teenage years, where my immune system was so weak. I kept getting sick throughout high school, and at every bigger event (study trip, dance competition etc. I ALWAYS got sick). At this point I still didn’t know what was wrong, and it was frustrating, because in your teenage years FOMO (fear of missing out) is so big, at least it was for me at that time, so laying sick in hotel rooms at study trips while my classmates was out having fun and exploring new cities was for sure something I could have lived without.

Around this time, I started to find out that my connection to my digestive problems was very much connected to whenever I had dairy of any kind. I started reading and learning more about this, and found out that many people are lactose intolerant. Hereafter I started experimenting myself, and started to cut out dairy products. This was a game changer. I started noticing how every time I was at a family birthday and had some dairy again that my stomach would react, and I got confirmed in that this food group was not a well-fit for me. I was feeling way better without eating dairy, and I started to search for alternatives.

At this point, my digestive problems had become so much better, but now my immune system was a wreck.
Couldn’t I just get to a point where I could feel healthy and thriving?

Funnily enough, today I can see the connection so clearly between my digestive issues and my weak immune system. Because I have later learned that around 2/3 of your immune system is located in your gut. By eating plenty of processed foods, sugar and keep eating and drinking dairy products as a child, this has certainly damaged my gut flora, and thereby also my digestive system later on.

Skin Issues

Like most other teenagers I also experienced skin problems, which does absolutely no good to an already insecure teenager. When my skin was breaking out there were days where I just wanted to stay at home and not go out. If you have had skin problems yourself, you can probably recognise this feeling.

Again, today I can completely see why my skin was breaking out at the time.

First of all, my gut flora was already so damaged, so there have been a bacterial overgrowth of the bad bacteria in my gut.
Second, my stress levels was quiet high in High School due to school assignments, exams and just normal high school pressure – and when you’re stressed this easily affects your skin. Because the ‘beauty’ of your skin really isn’t necessary for your overall survival, so when you’re stressed, your body takes nutrients from your skin cells to other, more important functions in your body. This is of course a good thing, but as a teenager, those breakouts was for sure not fun, and out of desperation I have probably tried all the harsh cleansers, creams etc. on the market (which of course didn’t work).

Out of complete desperation I decided to get on the vitamin A prescription through my doctor. This is such a harsh treatment, with very high dosages of vitamin A. It is actually so high, that you have to get blood test results every month while on the treatment. The treatment did work – for a while, but it also completely dried out my skin. And half a year later, the breakouts started happening again.

At this time, I had started to learn more and more about how the food we eat affect our health, and I was really into fuelling myself with healthy food. For many years, I saw the ‘solution’ to my problems as being: eating healthy food and moving my body.

Your Mindset

I have later learned the more holistic approach to health. Being healthy is not just about what you eat and how much you exercise. It’s just as much about how you’re feeling mentally.

Do you love yourself? Do you speak kindly to yourself? Do you have a job that you love? Do you take time to relax and do the things that makes you happy?

Emotions and your mental well-being affects your health so much, I’m positive that in the next few years we’ll learn even more about the powerful connection between our emotions and their effects on our health. I love how the whole body is connected, and I keep learning new things about different connection. I find this to be the most fascinating thing!

And this is why I’m so passionated about Holistic Health. It’s NOT just about what you eat (even though whole foods can do wonders for your health, for sure), but being healthy is just as much about your mindset and your well-being 🌿✨
