INTERESTING THINGS

It’s Wednesday and you know what that means? Time to share some of the interesting things which I’ve found in the past week! I’ve found a lot of videos this week, both one about decluttering, an encouraging one and one about a brand! And also a little plastic free challenge.

1. From clutter to clarity TED talk. Love this TED talk (gotta admit that I love most TED talks), but this is a lovely talk about how decluttering your life can improve your life.

2. Meghan Markle’s encouraging speech at the UN Women conference is wonderful. I love it, not so much because of the equality topic (even though that is amazing as well), but mainly because it shows how individual’s small actions can make a huge difference.

3. Lee from leefromamerica is having a plastic free challenge, and I love her blog post about the challenge!

4. I’ve already written about Miild make-up a couple of times in here and on my Instagram, but if you want to learn a bit more about the girls behind the brand and their reason for starting the company, then watch this lovely video.

Have you found any interesting things the past week? Please share them with me!

INTERESTING THINGS

It’s Wednesday and time for sharing some things with you guys! I’ve found some highly interesting, and very different, things for you this week. If you’ve anything interesting you would like to share, please feel free to share them below in the comments.

1. An Inconvenient Sequel – this is Al Gore’s 2nd documentary (first one called ‘An Inconvenient Truth’), which is all about climate change and the horrifying situation we’re in. I need to see this as soon as possible!

2. Cathrine is hosting a New Year’s event with Marie from Carrotstick.dk, come join if you want to start the new year with a fresh and healthy start!

3. I love this little experiment with girls wearing no make-up. How do you feel about not wearing make-up? I have no problem going to buy groceries, or just going for a walk, but I gotta admit going to school or work I always put on just a little bit of make-up

4. Have you ever thought about what you want to become when you die? Do you want to get burned or buried? I know for sure what I want to! I want to become a tree. I absolutely love the idea of turning myself into a tree when I die and thereby give something back to Earth and help the climate (I know death isn’t the most exciting thing to talk about, but when I came across this company I just knew that was what I wanted to do once that time comes – hopefully many, many years from now)

INTERESTING THINGS

It’s Wednesday and I have quiet a few interesting things for you this week, which I’m really excited about! This includes a secondhand shopping guide, a book about menstruation and women’s cycles, a new cool upcoming Danish beauty brand and an awesome innovation created to take better care of the oceans!

1. Lauren Singer’s guide to secondhand shopping. This girl is so stylish, and just makes me want to go out and buy awesome secondhand clothing right away!

2. WomanCode! I’m currently reading this book and it’s awesome (a book review will come later), but for now you can watch this interview with the Author behind the book, and learn a lot more about cycles and menstruation

3. I’m pretty excited about this upcoming Danish beauty brand called Bueno Naturals. The products are going to be based on the oils extracted from the coffee grounds from the ‘mother company’ Kaffe Bueno (a coffee company). I mean, how cool is that?

4. Seabin Project is a genius concept, just check out the videos. These bins are created to put into the oceans, or harbours, and then it will remove trash from the ocean – I absolutely love it!

Perhaps you can find some inspiration, either for yourself or, for one of your dear ones.

5 INSPIRERING BOOKS

It’s Wednesday, and I have thought about it and I’ll not just go for sharing interesting links these days, but rather share 5 inspirering or interesting things. Whether that be books, movies, documentaries, food etc. Today I’m going to share 5 inspirering books! I hope you can find some reading inspiration. Also, please share some of the inspirering books which you’ve read in the comments below, cause I’m already on the hunt for a great book!

 

So here they are, 5 inspirering books!

1. “The 5 Love Languages” – Gary Chapman 
The 5 Love Languages* is one of the best books I’ve read about how to improve your relationship with your partner. We all have different love languages, and by identifying your own and your partners, you can learn to show more love and receive more love in a way that is perfect for you and your partner, which will only make your love for each other grow.

2. “Big Magic – Creative Living Beyond Fear” – Elizabeth Gilbert
Big Magic* is one of THE most inspirering and encouraging books about creativity I’ve ever read. If you love being creative, but have a fear of what others might think of you – then you should go pick up this book and read it right away.

3. “Food Pharmacy” – Lina Nertby Aurell & Mia Clase
Food Pharmacy* is about how to get a healthy gut, a better digestion system and much more. It’s all about how you can use natural food to become even healthier.

4. “Mastering Your Mean Girl” – Melissa Ambrosini 
Mastering Your Mean Girl is a book that every young girl should read. We all know the feeling of feeling stupid or ashamed and talking ourselves down. This book will help you get rid of that evil “inner voice”, and become the best version of you.

5. “Beauty Foods” – Sally Walker & Laura Bonne
Beauty Foods* is all about different foods and how they can help you get stronger hair and nails, better looking skin etc. It’s all about how you can use natural food to enhance your beauty from the inside and out.

BÆREDYGTIGT INTERVIEW MED KLIMAMUSEN (ANNA)

Det blev tid til endnu et bæredygtigt interview, og denne gang er det med Anna, eller Klimamusen, som jeg også har mødt i virkeligheden et par gange, og som er super sød. Anna interesserer sig for at leve et bæredygtigt liv, og hun deler ud af forskellige tips og tricks på hendes Instagram Klimamusen. Lær Anna lidt bedre at kende lige her.


Fortæl lidt om dig selv

Jeg hedder Anna og har Instagram-profilen Klimamusen, hvor jeg fortæller om bæredygtig livsstil og grøn omstilling på hverdagsniveau. Jeg er tosset med planter og bliver igen og igen begejstret over deres udseende og egenskaber. Planter er for vilde. Jeg går lidt med en drøm om at uddanne mig til gartner på et tidspunkt.

Hvornår og hvorfor begyndte du at interesse dig for miljø og bæredygtighed?

Jeg kan ikke huske, hvornår min interesse begyndte, men jeg kan huske, hvornår den tog til i styrke. Det var da jeg i 2011 begyndte på en kandidat i Politisk Kommunikation og Ledelse på CBS. I introdagene var der forskellige oplæg, og et af dem blev holdt af Martin Lidegaard, der på det tidspunkt var formand for den danske grønne tænketank CONCITO. Han talte om klimaforandringer og sagde blandt andet, at vi måtte se tingene i øjnene og handle. Han talte også om Klimaambassaden, som er et projekt tilknyttet CONCITO, hvor man som ung holder oplæg og workshops for andre unge om klimaforandringer og forbrug. Det lød helt vildt spændende, syntes jeg, så jeg skrev til han, som han havde opfordret os til at gøre, og så blev jeg klimaambassadør og var med på en masse spændende projekter. Derfra er min viden og mit engagement vokset stille og roligt.

Hvordan lever du mere bæredygtigt?

Her i sommers blev jeg vegetar, hvilket lyder som en stor ting, men jeg spiste i forvejen ikke specielt meget kød, så det var et nemt skridt at tage. Så kan man måske tænke, at forskellen på om og gevinsten ved, at jeg så spiste lidt kød eller slet ikke, ikke er særlig stor. Det er den nok heller ikke, men det påvirker mine omgivelser, fx bor jeg sammen med min kæreste og to roomies, og når vi spiser sammen er det meget ofte kun vegetarisk, nogle gange laver de noget kød til, men det er sjældent. Og jeg har ingen klager hørt endnu. Derimod overhørte jeg en af mine roomies, med en vis stolhed i stemmen, sige til en ven, at ”her i lejligheden spiser vi jo vegetarisk”. Så nogle gange skal man ikke kun tænke på det konkrete output, men også tænke på de ringe i vandet, som man laver.

Hvad er dit bedste råd til andre som gerne vil begynde at leve mere bæredygtigt?

Tag de nemme skridt først. Hvis du som jeg ikke var/er den store kødæder, så er det måske et godt første (lille) skridt at blive vegetar eller skære endnu mere ned på kødet. Og husk at være flink mod dig selv. Så hvis du spiser noget kød eller noget andet, der er mindre bæredygtigt, så bare gør det lidt bedre næste gang.

Research og tale med venner, bekendte og familie og spred budskabet. Jo flere, der kommer med på vognen jo bedre. Og prøv så vidt muligt ikke at blive prædikende.

Hvad er din største bæredygtige drøm?

På det store plan håber jeg på, at vi MEGET snart får styr på klimaforandringerne, brugen af ressourcer og håndtering af affald.

Lidt mere egoistisk, så håber jeg på, at det bliver CO2-neutralt at flyve meget snart. Det er noget af det mest irriterende ved at leve bæredygtigt.


Tusinde tak til Anna for at besvare disse spørgsmål og være med til at inspirere mig på hendes Instagram.

5 INSPIRERING INSTAGRAMMERS

Today it’s Wednesday and that usually means time for some interesting things and links, but since I’ve just been on Holiday and haven’t really found lots of interesting links, I thought that I instead would share 5 inspirering Instagrammers. Believe me, I could chose a lot more, because I follow many inspirering people on Instagram, but today you get 5.

1. Leefromamerica
I have just discovered Lee’s Instagram recently and I’m absolutely in love with the aesthetics and all the small tips and tricks she provides on her account. If you are into health, wellness and holistic lifestyle you will for sure love this girl.


2. Connie Chapman
Connie is also the founder behind the lovely podcast “Awaken Radio” which I’ve already mentioned a couple of times in here. But her Instagram is also just amazing! Light and beautiful pictures, which just flows with healthy and holistic living.


3. Trashisfortossers
If you are into zero waste, you probably already know Lauren Singer from Trashisfortossers. If you don’t, you really have to check her out. I find her SO inspirering and she just makes zero waste look so cool and fashionable!


4. Zerowastechica
I fell over this lovely account the other day. I follow many zero waste ‘people’, because I’m head over heels in love with the aesthetics of a zero waste lifestyle and all the tips I find from random people, and this account included.


5. Tina Lykkegaard
This account is only in Danish. But Tina is a holistic skintherapeut and she just provides her followers with so much valuable knowledge about how to get beautiful skin and stay healthy, I love all her small tips and tricks.


Who do you find inspirering on Instagram? I love to explore new and inspirering accounts!

IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE, CHANGE YOUR SMALL HABITS

Har du nogensinde tænkt på, at vores liv er lavet af alle vores små hverdagsvaner?

Hvis du har en vane med at motionere dagligt og spise sundt, så har du en rigtig god forudsætning for at have en sund krop.

Hvis du har en vane med at tænke negative tanker om dig selv, så har du større risiko for at have et dårligt selvværd.

Hvis du har en vane for at at bruge stofposer istedet for plastikposer når du handler ind, så vil det på sigt betyde rigtig meget for hvor meget plastik du undlader at kreere i denne verden.

Se faktisk, så er det alle de små vaner i vores liv der har den store betydning for hvordan at vores liv egentlig ser ud.

Hvilket også betyder, at hvis du vil ændre noget i dit liv. Så prøv at ændre små ting og giv det lidt tid. Vaner tager tid at ændre (21 dage siges det ifølge undersøgelser), så vær tålmodig med dig selv.

Hvis du for eksempel gerne vil være sundere, men du drikker en masse sodavand, så prøv på at skær ned på det, eller skære det helt væk.

Hvis du gerne vil have et bedre selvværd, så prøv at blive bevidst om hvad du faktisk fortæller dig selv i dit sind hver dag, og ændre det bevidst.

Jeg er selv helt vild med Albert Einstein citatet, der lyder således: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them” (vi kan ikke ændre vores problemer med den samme tankegang we brugte til at skabe dem med).
Simpelt sagt, vi bliver nødt til at gøre noget nyt end hvad vi hidtil har gjort, hvis vi vil have et andet resultat end hvad vi har fået indtil videre.

English:

Have you ever thought about that our lives are made up of our small everyday habits?

If it is a habit of yours to exercise daily and eat healthy, then you are pretty sure to have a very healthy body.

If it is a habit of yours to think negative thoughts about yourself, then you are more likely to suffer from a bad self-esteem.

If it is a habit of yours to use reusable canvas bags instead of plastic bags whenever you go shopping, then this will mean that you avoid creating a lot of plastic waste in your life.

So actually, it is all the small habits in our everyday life that has adds up and decide how our lives actually look like.

Which also means that if you want to change something in your life, then try to change some small things and give yourself time. It takes time to change a habit, so be patient with yourself.

Hvilket også betyder, at hvis du vil ændre noget i dit liv. Så prøv at ændre små ting og giv det lidt tid. Vaner tager tid at ændre (21 days is what research say), så vær tålmodig med dig selv.

If you, for instance, want to be healthier, but you drink a lot of soft drinks, then try to cut down on it, or cut it completely out of your life.

If you want to have better self-confidence, then pay attention to how you think about yourself in your mind, and consciously change it for the better.

I absolutely love the Albert Einstein quote that sounds like this: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them“.
Simply said – we have to do something differently from what we have done so far, if we want another result than what we have gotten up until now.

INTERESTING THINGS

Så blev det onsdag, og jeg har fundet lidt interessante ting og sager til jer i denne uge, som jeg håber kan inspirere jer på en eller anden måde. Hvis i har fundet nogle interessante ting og sager (videoer, film, dokumentarer, musik, bøger eller noget andet) så del det endelig med mig i kommentarfeltet!

1. “Start with Why” TED talk af Simon Sinek. Vi skulle se denne video som lektie til en af mine klasser på universitet, og jeg syntes den var så god. Det handler om at firmaer ikke bare skal lave et firma for at tjene penge, men skal finde ud af hvordan de reelt skaber værdi – så vigtigt et budskab.

2. Lavendaire (Aileen) har mange fine og inspirerende youtube videoer, og denne her om ‘procrastination’ var særligt inspirerende. Vi kender vel alle det med at man skal nå en masse, men at man så ender med at lave en masse overspringshandlinger istedet? Her er lidt tips og tricks til at overkomme det problem.

3. Jeg vil lige anbefale NeoHippie’s blog. Jeg følger hende også på Instagram hvor jeg bliver inspireret til at leve en endnu mere naturlig livsstil gang på gang, og på hendes blog deler hun ud af en masse gode sager.

4. Nu vi alligevel har været ved emnet om overspringshandlinger, så er denne her video “Inside the mind of a master procrastinator” simpelthen noget af det sjoveste (også endnu en TED talk, og dem kan man aldrig få for mange af, i hvert fald ikke hvis du spørger mig).

English: 

Then it became Wednesday and it’s time for some of the things I’ve found interesting, which hopefully can inspire you in some way or another. If you have found some interesting things (videos, films, documentaries, music, books etc.) then please share them with me in the comment section!

1. “Start with Why” TED talk by Simon Sinek. We had this video as a homework for one of my classes at university, and I thought it was so good. It’s about how companies shall not just make a company to make money, but shall think about how they create value – such an important message.

2. Lavendaire (Aileen) has many inspirering youtube videos, and this one about procrastination was really inspirering. I think we all know the feeling of having a lot of things we need to do, but we end up procrastinating instead? Here are some tips and tricks on how to beat procrastination.

3. I want to recommend NeoHippie’s blog (only in Danish). I also follow her on Instagram where she always inspire me to want to live a more natural life, and she shares so many good things on her blog.

4. Now that we have touched upon the topic of procrastination, I’ve also watched this video “Inside the mind of a master procrastinator” which is just hilarious (another TED talk video – you can never get enough of those if you ask me).
