Feeling Grey .. Feeling Blue


Jasmine Elnadeem

It doesn’t take a lot to confirm that weather affects your mood, and in Sweden we witness more dark days than the bright ones.

Things has been a little gloomy when you wake up in the morning and see no light.

So it is time to take your vitamin D regularly and hope for the best.

But what else can you do in these days to have a bit of fun?!

Oh baby, I got some tips for you:

1- Take a hike and see all the colored leaves. I actually moved to new place so looking forward to explorer the area around us.

2- Fika and more Fika. Yes Swedes love to have a lot of coffee breaks (fika) but in these days cafes feels more warm and cozy than the rest of the year.

Lunch with Kajsa at LOCALS

3- Mysa time. It means cozy up. You can do that alone or with friends. Light some candles, put some flowers and enjoy a drink or two.

4- Time to go to the museum. Last year I spent a lot of rainy days at different museums. Still there is the ABBA museum which I wish to see this year.

5- Get fit in the gym. More Swedes turn to escape the dark mornings and days by heading to the gym. It is natural to invest some quality time in oneself. Running outside makes no sense so the gym is an ideal place anytime.

Today I’m heading to the gym after work, I will have an early dinner then cozying up in front of TV or maybe I will curl up with a book.

Have a great day y’all! Puss Puss

Hösten är här!

Autumns in Sweden can be quite hard to bear with. You can tell the days are getting shorter and shorter.

Still you can see the beauty of Autumn when the sunlight reveals all the shades of colours the leaves have turned. And from what I’ve seen so far, autumn in Sweden can be quite a pretty season.

Although October had many sunny days, the temperatures noticeably start keeping people inside their houses and you won’t see too many people walking around the streets.

Autumn in Sweden doesn’t have to be so bad. Autumn colours are everywhere, and they make a great backdrop for a walk. It can have a positive effect on your mental health too, making you feel happier, healthier and calmer.

Towards the end of August, the Swedish sky begins to darken again, and the rhythm of the world change.

I don’t mind the cold so much but I don’t like the rain and still not used to always carrying a sweater and umbrella all the time.

Swedish autumn was so punctual this year, it started with raining day on the 1st of September but me and Jaime decided to beat today’s swedish rain by spending some time in a cosy coffee shop enjoying a hot drink and a healthy breakfast while doing some business.

We had our coffee at Espresso House which is in my opinion better than any other coffee competitor. They have excellent coffee and great variety, their baggels are very tasty and fresh and the decor of their stores are cozy, comfortable and relaxing. Yes It is a great choice for breakfast, quick snack, coffee or fika with friends.

But now it is time to say Nighty Nighty to all of you, as I will have to be up once again at 5.00 AM to start the Body Fit training.
