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
WHO IS…YAYOI KUSAMA?
Yayoi Kusama is a Japanese artist who is sometimes called ‘the princess of polka dots’. Although she makes lots of different types of art – paintings, sculptures, performances and installations – they have one thing in common…dots!
Suffering from an obsessive compulsive disorder affected her relationship with her family, Kusama moved to New York City in the ’50s, using every bit of money she had to buy canvases and paint.
“I was always hungry and cold. I wanted to die but kept painting.” Her dedication and hard workings eventually led her to worldwide recognition.
They say when you can overcame dark days with the power of art, and I was lucky to have a beautiful heart in my life who took me to that great exhibition.
Activities like painting, sculpting or drawing, and photography can be very relaxing and rewarding hobbies that can lower your stress levels and leave you feeling mentally clear and calm.
You don’t need to create paintings to distract yourself, visiting art places art can give your brain a break from your usual thoughts.
Have a lovely Sunday y’all, J
Being an adult is a full-time job, and guess what, you not gonna be younger but on some days you can feel younger.
Today my friend Jamie took me for a late lunch date at Babel Deli, oh yeah I wanted to eat in that restaurant for months and today I was finally there.
I had a plate of my own mixed meze with falafel, hummus, baba ganoush, stuffed vine leaves and salad.
I don’t need to say a lot, It was amazing. The place is a piece of home in Stockholm, the taste of heaven and it just made me happy. So if you are passing by – make a stop, and believe me, you will not regret that!
Besides the food, the interior design had a nice, fresh style, and the staff was super friendly and helpful when it came to ordering.
Babel Deli – Middle Eastern cuisine – serves super delicious mixed oriental food and very generous portion.
I think it is gonna be one of my fav food spots in Stockholm, and I will go back to try everything else from their menu as soon as I get the chance 🙂
Hugs and Puss Puss, have a peaceful night ❤
