How to Stay Sane While Isolated

I know most of you are in some way affected by this Corona crisis. Many of you are living in quarantine and being isolated.

Even if you’re not, you’re probably staying away from meeting up with friends and family for a while. So what can you do during this crazy time to stay sane?

Here’s a few ideas:

Reach out to your friends, family or neighbours and ask how they’re doing. Call them, or even better, video chat to see their faces. It makes a difference and I’m sure they would love to see you, even if it’s just through a screen.

Read good books. No surprise this is coming from yours truly. Personally, I’m reading a book about body languge, but I do have many books in my shelves to go through.

Don’t fall into the dark pit of the media. Seriously, how many times do you really want to be reminded of how many people are currently infected/has died? It’s not good for your mental health, so please, try to limit your intake of bad news.

Do continue to take showers. Even if you live alone and others won’t be disturbed by your smell, you will feel better if you take care of yourself.

Get some daily exercise. If you move enough to break a sweat for about 20 minutes, your brain will release happy hormones which will make you feel – that’s right – happier! If you can’t go outside, check out online classes or make up your own routine.

Take a walk in a park or forest if you can go outside. Something called forestbathing is amazing for your mental health and will, like working out, release those happy hormones.

Watch good movies/tv-series. By good I mean those that will make you feel happier. Here’s a link to a list of my personal favorites:

How to Find Inspiration – The Book

Bokomslag ebokRÄTT

For the past year I’ve been working on my very own first book. It’s about different ways you can find inspiration and I’ve put a lot of time and research into it so that you won’t have to. I ended up with 100 ideas – but of course you can pick and choose the ones you’d like to try for yourself.

I’m very excited to announce that How to Find Inspiration will be available on June 16th!

Here is a bit of information about it:

 

”Do you often get that wonderful, exciting feeling of overwhelming inspiration? Do you often find yourself in different situations where this happens? Does this feeling occur to you naturally on a day-to-day basis?

Well, then you won’t need this book. I am truly very happy for you and wish you continued, eternal inspiration (you mythical creature)!
However, if you are not one of these few, unworldly people out there, this is the book for you!

100 fun, creative and easy-to-do ideas combined with inspirational quotes from – you guessed it! – inspirational people will lead you where you need to be in order to get your inspiration back on track.

The book does not only contain 100 inspirational ideas, it is also filled with photographs, thought-worthy quotes and some psychological aspects.

There are ideas for those wanting more adventure in their lives as well as for those who prefer to keep it simple.”

Banksy Pranks the Art World

Recently, the anonymous street artist known as Banksy pulled off one of the most fascinating pranks in the art world: when one of his paintings was sold for almost $1.4 million at Sotheby’s auction in London the painting self-destructed. Yes, immediately after it was sold it began shredding itself. The spray-painted art piece was titled “Girl with a Balloon” from 2006. After the final bid an alarm went off and the attention was drawn to the painting. It was shredding itself. Banksy has since published a video showing how he built in the shredder into the bottom of the frame.

Apparently, the mechanism built into the frame was remote-controlled and shredded the painting with the touch of a button. The attendees were obviously amused, pulling out their phones and cameras to snap photos of the astounding event with smiles on their faces.

“Going, gone, gone” – Banksy

 

Sotheby’s says they’re discussing with the anonymous buyer of the painting how they’ll proceed. At the moment, the art world is trying to figure out whether or not the painting’s value has actually increased or decreased.

“We’ve been Banksy-ed,” Sotheby’s European head of contemporary art Alex Branczik says. “We are busy figuring out what this means in an auction context. I’ll be quite honest, we have not experienced this situation in the past, where a painting is spontaneously shredded upon achieving a record for the artist”.

What do you think about all of this?
