SIRSASANA

Nelli Arnths blog SIRSASANA

Yoga has been part of my life for nearly 3 years now. It helps my body cope with the many hours spent in front of the computer. When I get stuck in a assignment, I have developed different solutions on how to proceed. First of all it is about acknowledging the problem, and then to actually do something about it:

  • Make a cup of coffee and spend 15 minutes to scroll through my Pinterest feed or watch some delicious shit at NOWNESS
  • Do a headstand followed by the palm tree pose and drink a large cup of water
  • GO OUTSIDE! Get some fresh air, listen to the birds and watch your vegetable garden grow.

SLOW MORNINGS + TED TALKS

Slow mornings with coffeeI talk about the freedom of running my own business quite a lot. But truly it is something I am very fond of. I like working late – actually I am most productive in the hours between 10 PM – 02 AM. There is something very calming about these house. I am alone in the studio (or mostly my cat keeps me company). I listen to some good music and forget about time. It is a small escape in my everyday life. I do not get disturbed, and I feel like hitting that mental state of flow. Every night bear its own possibilities.

My mornings on the other hand… are slow. Really slow. Instead of working against this rhythm I have decided to embrace it (read here or here).

In the mornings I seek inspiration and I am always eager to learn about new thing. For example I like watching TED talks while eating my breakfast. Not only the talks about design and entrepreneurship. But talks about all kinds of topics. This routine inspired me to collect the talks I find most interesting.

So here it is: TED talks for the slow mornings – for you to use then you sit on the bus, eat your breakfast or whatever.

Have an adventurous day everyone.

*Wikipedia definition: In positive psychologyflow… is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by complete absorption in what one does.

This morning I can’t get enough of Amber YJ Lais beautiful pictures. There is a silence to them. A rawness. That combination of colors. Love it.

Island Honeymoon

 

When Søren and I planned for our honeymoon destination this summer we considered Iceland several times. We kept dreaming about a roadtrip though the country. Exploring the great nature on a shoestring budget. But after much deliberation, we finally decided on Marocco which was pretty awesome as well.

However this video of Jesse and his wife’s beautiful Iclandic honeymoon made me think again.

Hönshuset Creative Studio

I recently started my own creative studio called Hönshuset (swedish for the hen house).

My studio is set in an old sunroom in the countryside of Jutland, Denmark. Here my husband and I are the fourth generation living in a old country house 600 from the Wadden Sea. Being surrounded by tranquility and nature means everything to me.

We strive to live a simple life where passion and happiness is always paramount. Where creativity flourishes and where no dream is to big.

My 3-year experience in the media/advertising industry as well as my bachelor in multimedia design and concept development, is the basis for my professionalism and ability. I love to be inspired, learn and grow.

I named Hönshuset a creative studio. I do not want to limit myself. My studio will accommodate all of my quirky ideas. I have skills in InDesign and Photoshop, but I am probably soon starting to master watercolor painting.

The direction I choose is subject to the people I meet and the inspiration I get.

I was born with an undeniable wanderlust. It has brought me great experiences in new countries and cultures. It developed me and it is a big part of why I live as I do today. Without a fancy new kitchen, but truly happy.

In the fall of 2015, I made a big decision. I quit my full-time job as a graphic designer at a media agency in Aarhus, and moved with my husband to the West Coast of Jutland. Caffe latte was replaced with rubber boots. Going out replaced with gardening.

And it is one of the best decisions I have ever made.
