From 9 to 5

Hi from my new, ergonomic office space! It’s time to start taking my own health, work and time seriously, therefore I decided to invest in a real office space in my own home. I’ve always had an office, but this time function beats esthetics. I bought a large electronically adjustable table that fits both me and my photographer/ husband/ partner. In other words, it fits two.

Now, I can work in a standing position or sitting on an ergonomic chair and I can install the table exactly where I need it. Although I love old furniture with a past, I still think it turned out better than expected. I’m actually feeling very content with the outcome. All I need now is a large screen for me to work on and to make it cozy with nice fabrics, pictures and plants. Maybe something in brass would make it feel more like me ;).

You can follow the progress on Insta stories. Have a good day!

Terveiset minun uudesta ergonomisesta toimistotilasta! Vihdoin ja viimein on tullut aika ottaa oma terveys, työ ja ajankäyttöni vakavasti, joten päätin panostaa kunnon toimistotilaan omassa kodissani. Minulla on aina ollut toimistohuone, mutta tällä kertaa käytännöllisyys voittaa estetiikan. Ostin suuren sähköisesti säädettävän pöydän, joka sopii sekä minulle, että valokuvaajalleni / aviomiehelleni / kumppanilleni. Toisin sanoen siinä on kaksi työpistettä :).

Nyt voin työskennellä joko seisoma-asennossa tai istua ergonomisella tuolilla, ja voin asentaa pöydän juuri sopivalle korkeudelle. Vaikka rakastankin vanhoja huonekaluja, joilla on menneisyys, olen silti sitä mieltä, että tämä pöytä osoittautui odotettua paremmaksi. Olen itseasiassa todella tyytyväinen lopputulokseen. Nyt tarvitsen vain suuren näytön, jonka ääressä pääsen työskentelemään helpommin, ja haluan tehdä huoneesta viihtyisämmän ihanilla tekstiileillä, tauluilla ja kasveilla.

Voitte seurata huoneen edistytymmistä stooreissani Instan puolella. Ihanaa päivää!

10 years from now

Health,19 September 2018

Do you believe in making plans? I’m quite unsure myself because it sometimes gives me anxiety or at least pressure, but last week I found myself in a situation that made me re-think.

On Sunday morning, I enjoyed a 5-hour brunch with two friends of mine and all of a sudden, they threw out the idea to share our 10-year plans. As I never think so far ahead, I didn’t have any thoughts ready to share, therefore I closed my eyes for a second and tried to vision myself 10 years ahead from now. It’s scarier than you’d think. Especially for someone like me so afraid to let myself down and fail in life.

It was very inspiring and interesting to listen to my friends. It made me understand them much better and where they’re at on that journey. I also understood myself better. I’m happy where I’m at, but I want to grow and be more involved with the organizations I collaborate with. Also, what I realized was that I see much more happening in my private life. I want to arrange more dinners, be involved with my children’s hobbies and spend more time on myself, doing things I love. I love work, but I’m so happy with where I am right now, so I don’t find work to be my main focus area.

If you’ve read any self-help books lately, you might have noticed a strong trend to reflect and write future plans. If that feels difficult, do what we did and spontaneously share dreams and goals with someone you feel safe and comfortable with. Just by saying them out loud is enough. Or at least it was for me. When you put words on it, it becomes more tangible and clearer.

Do you know how you want your life to look like 10 years from now?
