This Summer I'm Going to...

My summer holiday is finally here! It feels amazing to know that I'll have enough time to rest and just do the things I love doing. But what are my summer holiday plans? In this post I will share these simple things I look forward doing.

In my summer holiday I am going to:


1. Swim

Last year when we were on a boat a lot I really got into swimming. As Finland is a land of thousands lakes we Finns really should take advantage of our clean and fresh lakes. Swimming in a cold water boosts your immunity and aids your body to recover from a workout. It truly is an empowering feeling after you rise from the cold water!

2. Invest in my recovery and sleep

Rest is so important. When I have had a good night's sleep, I am able to create interesting blog posts. I'll admit it that sometimes I have too much on my plate but that is because I get so easily excited about life and  new things that I don´t always notice how this will drain my energy levels in the long run. I am trying to prevent this by sleeping a lot and trying not to do anything for the first few weeks of my holiday.. I already have interesting ideas about this blog and other work related projects but I have to put them aside for a while..

3. Eat a lot of berries

Hello there vitamins and antioxidants! Can't get enough from you! I'm buying a new juicer which will fit better into my kitchen so I can make fresh juices more often.

4. Spend time with my son and travel

My son is growing so fast and this is one reason that I want to have a quality holiday trip with him soon. Just the two of us đź’—

5. Play football and do more yoga

As I mentioned before I quit my gym membership and that has been one of the best decisions in a while. Now I can focus my time on the things I actually want to do: play soccer and do more yoga. We have many football games in this summer so it will be quite exciting and nerve wrecking at the same time!

6. Spend a lot of time in the forest and on our boat

Oh, how I love the forest! Spending time in the forest is so good for you in many ways: you will connect with the nature, breath oxygen rich air, your stress levels will decrease...Also this year my husband will have a nice holiday so we will be on our boat.

Other things:

visit Joensuu
visit Savonlinna
visit Helsinki
travel to Greek
do morning runs every week
eat ice cream
spend one week without opening my computer
sleep as long as I want
read a book late in the night
go on an over night date with my hubby
start nutrition coach studies
pick up flowers and herbs
make a face lotion
cook vegan food
have coffee dates with my friends
make fresh juices
go for a walk with my friends




However, even as it is my earned summer holiday, I still plan to post 1-2 times per week. So I hope you will stick around! I also have an exciting announcement to make during the summer time! Cannot wait to share it with you.

In the mean while I hope you have a relaxing summer holiday ahead!

Lots of love,

Jennikatja

I Quit Drinking Coffee and it Changed My Life

The U.S.Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says about 80 percent of U.S. adults take some form of caffeine every day. Accordingly, coffee is one of the most commonly used ingredients in the world. But caffeine does so much more than just keeping you awake.It’s a central nervous system stimulant that affects your body in numerous ways. So, let's talk about this and why drinking coffee might not be good for for you.

5 Effective Weight Loss Drinks

When it comes to losing weight, there is a lot of different kinds of detox packages and weight loss drinks available. However, I would not recommend using these products because they only offer short term benefits if any benefits at all. Instead I encourage to use a weight loss method which is sustainable. Usually this is acquiring healthy eating and exercising habits for life. You can achieve this by following my Nutrition Programme.

Surely different starter kits, such as detox kits and ready to eat soup diets may come in handy but eventually when you have lost some weight, you should opt for methods which offer permanent results. Therefore, in this post I will share with you 5 effective weight loss drink recipes. I would like to remind you that drinking these drinks are not your only diet.  On the contrary, these are recommended beside your healthy meals and these healthy drinks could replace your other sugary sodas and juices..Besides they are also healthy and delicious too.

How to Stay Young and Healthy

The other day I watched a really interesting BBC document about how to stay young and more specifically how to prevent dementia and Alzheimer's disease. As you get older your brains begin to shrink. As a result of this your cognitive skills diminish. How to prevent this? The key is to use your brains on a daily basis. More specifically scientists have discovered that learning a new language has the most efficient way to prevent dementia because learning will increase the size of your brain. According to these scientists other important ways to affect the size of your brain were

Why Are Cola Drinks So Addictive?

Did you know that in Argentina people drink the most soft drinks in the world? Their annual consumption is 155 liters per capita.  Not far behind is number two, the USA with 154 liters per capita. Americans are one of the largest consumers of the soda drinks in the world because of their modern lifestyle and high incomes. As it is very common to drink colas or other soft drinks but I have heard many people saying that they cannot stop drinking them. I started to wonder what is it that makes drinking Coca-Cola so addictive? Is it the caffeine, sugar or the artificial sweeteners? Besides what's the harm in drinking Coca-Cola? Below I will examine these three issues. Caffeine content
The caffeine content in a 330ml serving of regular (sugar) Coca-Cola is about 32 mg. Compared to a a mug of coffee which contains 100 mg of caffeine that is a bit less. According to the Coca-Cola company the caffeine in their drinks is not addictive. However, if you are really sensitive to caffeine, you…

My Healthy Morning Routines

What kind of morning rituals do you have on the weekends? In this post I will share mine. I try to follow a consistent sleep schedule in which I try to go to bed at 10 pm at the latest on the weekends and wake up at 7.30 at the latest. Having said this, if I stay up later than 10 pm I don't stress about it. But if I have a "normal" weekend at home this is what I usually do..I have found a lot of positive things about waking up early. Previously I wrote about how waking up early made me more productive and how to become a morning person. I encourage you to try this!
After I have woken up, I drink a glass of room temperature water which I have left in my toilet the previous night. Then it's time to move my body. This part of my morning is the best part which encourages me to wake up early. My morning movements depend on how I feel in that morning. Sometimes I go for a short walk or run just to get some fresh air and wake up my body. In my opinion there is nothing like…

10 vinkkiä turvotuksen vähentämiseen

Vaivaako turvotus? Kokeile alla olevia vinkkejä ja saatat päästä kiusallisesta turvotuksesta eroon.

1. Syö säännöllisesti pieniä aterioita 5 kertaa päivässä.

2. Lisää kuitujen määrää.

Kuidut auttavat suolen toiminnassa, mikä jo sinällään vähentää turvotuksen tunnetta vatsassa. Tähtää 25 g päivässä. Hyviä kuidun lähteitä ovat kaurapuuro, täysjyväviljatuotteet, päärynä, avokado. Kaurapuuro marjojen kanssa on hyvä nesteenpoistaja.

3. Vältä suolan käyttöä.

Muistathan, että leivässä on yleensä paljon suolaa, leikkeleistä ja juustoista puhumattakaan. Jos käytät näitä elintarvikkeita, valitse vähäsuolaisin vaihtoehto tai sydänmerkki. Älä lisää suolaa riisiä keittäessäsi. Katso myös paljonko kasvis- ja lihaliemikuutiosi sisältää suolaa. Voit yllättyä!Suolaa tulisi saada maksimissaan 5g päivässä. Useilla suomalaisilla tämä määrä ylittyy reilusti.

4. Vältä nopeita hiilihydraatteja.

Näitä ovat muun muassa sokeri ja valkoviljatuotteet. Nämä keräävät nestettä elimistöösi ja aiheuttavat turvotusta …
