Tired days – Tips for better sleep anyone?

black and white selfie

Tonight i have slept very bad… I have always had problem with my sleep and tried to do a lot of things to make it better. For example i am:

  • Sleeping with earplugs
  • Downloaded an app that change the blue light on my mobile screen in the evenings to a more orange one that are not supposed to disturb the sleep as much.
  • Trying to get rid of all my extra energy during the day so i am really tired in the evening
  • Not drinking coffee too late in the afternoon

Do you guys have any good tips how to get better sleep? 🙂

A weekend with guests

I really love being at my summerplace, it is so peaceful and relaxing. But sometimes that can be a bit boring, so than it is good to have some friends coming over for a visit.

This weekend i had my friends Bella and Jocke here for two nights. Had a lot of fun and drank a lot of beer. Good times.

Just chilling at my summerplace

I have not been updating much lately, but i had nothing to update about! I have just been here at my summerplace, working, chilling, running, sleeping. Nothing more fun than that, but it has been really nice. My whole 2018 has been a big travel so i needed to relax a bit.

Back in Sweden once again

Today i am very tired, except from travelling yesterday i also slept very bad because of the heat.. Yes you read right, i could not sleep good because of the heat, IN SWEDEN! But i should not complain, i am very happy about the weather, especially since i am spending these days at my wonderful summerplace and that the nights problem was an easy fix by just changing the blanket to a much thinner one 🙂

Now i want to stay here for a while! I think my flight yesterday was number 16 this year only..

Podcasts – What i am listening to right now

I am actually still a newbie when it comes to podcasts. I started to listen to them only in the end of last year and i ask myself every day after that why i didnt start earlier! But on the other hand, i have so many awesome podcasts to catch up with now. One of my absolute favorite thing this year has been to just lay down at the beach and put on a good podcast and just be by myself listen to it.

My favorite podcasts (some of them)

So far i have manage to get a few favorites among the ones i have tried listen to. They will mostly be in Swedish tough since that is my native language, but i also listen to some in English, they are mostly work related tough.

#1 Spöktimmen. I am a sucker for the supernatural and creepy stuff and i cant get enough of all these unsolved mysteries, ghost stories and dangerous games stuff. The last one was actually one of my favorite episodes, didnt thought it was going to be when i started to listen to it but damn that one creeped me out, and like the weirdo i am i loved it! The girls who has this podcast is also great at telling the stories and talk about different theories and you can really tell that they love this shit too. A lot of cred to them!

#2 FramgÄngspodden. A podcast with Alexander PÀrleros where he interviews people that are well known in Sweden. It can be anyone from a famous singer to a political involved person, but the thing they have in common is that they are successful in some kind of way. It is really interesting to listen to these interviews, especially the political involved ones since we have election in Sweden later this year.

#3 David Batras Podcast. I could not, not listen to this one. David Batra is one of my absolute favorite comedian in Sweden and he caught my heart a looong time ago with his character Ulf in the tv-show Kvarteret Skatan. In this podcast, Batra and his sidekick Anna Sahlin brings up small but very funny news that they discuss together with the different guest they are having every week (which is also a comedian ofc). This podcast was my best friend during long bus strips in Asia, i mean they are long and boring but still i managed to laugh my way trough them.

Next time i share some of my favorite podcasts i promise to bring up some English ones too!

Sweden vs Mexico

Yesterday was a great day! I was working in ultra speed so i would be ready to leave from home around 15.30. I went to a pool area to watch the game outdoor with my boyfriend in the sun while having some drinks. 5 min after we sat down a bunch of old friends showed up and took the seat just behind us, how lucky am i! 😀

The fun part was that every single person who watched the game where we were was Swedish, except for my boyfriend who is a Mexican.
He was not happy after we had beaten their asses with 3-0, but the Mexicans is still trough to the next round since German lost against Korea yesterday. So everything ended well. Now i am just lying in bed… deadly tired after all the celebration after the game yesterday and i dont think i will leave the house at any point tonight.

No sleep & no meet

Yesterday was a veeeeery long day. We never went to sleep on Monday, instead we stayed up to go straight to the airport and take the flight that left 06.30 in the morning. Since it departures from Stockholm Skavsta we had a bit to go to get there.

On the way we bought some burgers from MAX since my boyfriend was starving. Luckily for me they actually had some great vegetarian options! (Have not been at MAX for years).
Well, when we were finally on the bus towards the airport my boyfriend noticed that NONE of his burgers has the meet in them, they simply forgot to add it. He was not very happy! XD

It all ended well for him tough. After arriving in Malta we slept for some hours, worked, and then we headed to the beach St George bay to watch the Nigeria – Argentina game and have some nice food and drinks.
But tonight is the BIG game!

Midsummer passed waaay to fast and now i am back in Stockholm again.. but not for lung, tonight i will get myself to the airport to head over to Malta.
