Ice bathing? Seriously? Why? How?

One of my favourite things about living in the north is bathing in the cold water all year long. It might sound crazy, but it’s absolutely doable and it can be an amazing experience, an internal dive and a total energy kicker. Actually, it’s like yoga. You practice ease, presence, body awareness and feeling, and it makes you feel great. In this post I want to … Continue reading Ice bathing? Seriously? Why? How?

I love staying at our cabin at Bjørnfjell in Northern Norway. It is a beautiful place near Swedish border with a very special landscape of large stone hills. The vegetation is limited to short trees, mousse and different kinds of mountain herbs and berries. Summers are really nice up here, with light days and nights, so it‘s not at all scary to be here alone. Staying … Continue reading Life in the cabin, vegan Snickers bars and chocolate spaghetti.
