"Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”
- Lao Tzu

This spring, we have been talking about letting go off the haziness, about slowing down, and about seeking simplicity. In our last blog post, we were pondering about the pros and cons of social media. Today, we are more connected to each other than ever before in human history, at the same time, we are increasingly feeling lonelier and more depressed. We as human beings are craving for deeper connections with other human beings. When we replace "I" with "we" even illness becomes wellness.

"Don't forget to drink water and get sun. You're basically a houseplant with complicated emotions."

Stressing is optional even in the world that seems to be driven by it, and so is living in the moment. Living a holistic lifestyle is not a trend. It is a conscious choice to create balance in our lives and to achieve the highest potential of well-being for our body, mind and soul. It might sound cheesy but in the end, we all are physical, emotional and spiritual creators, and that is what makes the triangle of holistic health too. We need all three to be balanced and healthy. The good news is health and well-being are subjective and highly individualised that means self-care looks different to each and every one of us.

We often tend to think we need to do more to improve ourselves, but it actually lies in the non-doing and letting go. We must let go of the habitual patterns of thought and behaviour. We must give space for the growth, or we end up killing it. Everything happens at the right time and extent.

"I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees."


This summer (and beyond), let’s wander there where the wifi is weak. There is not such a thing than too much fresh air. Somewhere between the start of the trail and the end is the mystery why we choose to walk.

Do you like to spend time in nature? What are your favourite ways to improve your holistic wellbeing? Write at least two tips down below!

Love,
Ama & Essi
