I try to live as environment -friendly as possible, I don't shop excessively, I'm vegan, I take public transportation, I buy ecological and I try to recycle. It's actually quite a personal marker or identity for me.
That's why it's so hard for me to accept that fact that I just flew to Madeira, since it's so bad to fly. But I guess one can't always live by principles. Ireally needed to boost my d vitamin levels. It's dark in Sweden this time of year, and that's not beneficial for my mental health.

while here I plan to get some exercise. When I get depressed I tend to overeat and therefor have I gained some weight. It's so much easier motivating myself to exercise when I get to see beautiful views.

I've decluttered my home for a few years.
I realised that stuff I don't need just eats up space and time that I can use to other things. I suffer from depression and anxiety, and I've found that a less cluttered space makes me feel better.
Two years ago I lost my sister to cancer and that made me even more aware of the fact that we don't have unlimited time on this earth, and that I don't want to spend it cleaning and focusing on material things.
My own and my sister's illness also made me realize that things isn't important if they doesn't serve you any purpose. They don't necessarily make us happier or healthier. Less things, or more like the things I need, makes me more focus on what I want and taking care of myself.

This is my go-to bread. I've made it so many times now that I know it like the back of my hand. There is a great benefit with having staple recipes. First of all you know what you always should have in your cupboards. Second of all, you can learn the recipes and processes by heart and therefor spend less time and effort making it.

Hazelnut bread 2 Loafs or 20 buns

50g yeast
7 dl lukewarm water
1 dl chopped hazelnuts
1 tblsp vegetable oil
2,5 tsp salt
2 dl coarse rye flour
~11 dl wheat flour

Crumble the yeast into a big bowl. Heat water to blood warm. Dissolve yeast with the water in the bowl. Mix hazelnuts, oil, salt and rye flour with the liquid. Work in the wheat flour, little by little. Mix until the dough is formable. Let it ferment for 60 min. Then, put on the table and form 2 loafs or 20 buns. Let it ferment for 30 min. Preheat the oven 250 C. If you're making buns, bake for about 12 minutes in the middle of the oven. If yo're making loafs, bake at 250 C on the lower level for 15 min, and then lower the temperature to 175 C for an additional 20 min. Done!

I've decluttered my home for about 2 years, all at random. For some reason I still feel overwhelmed and cluttered and I don't understand how it's possible.
The culture we live in, in western society, promotes random shopping of random stuff that even a hardcore minimalist sometimes fall under the grip of unnecessary consumption.
To take controll over what comes in and what goes out I've decided to make a list of every item that enters and leaves. My hopes are that a lot more leaves then comes in, but I don't feel comfortable that's the case. I guess that time will tell. Wish me well!
