Speaking of strength

We know carrots are good to keep us in good mood –and yes this is in addition to the pink bum, or because of it, who knows. Good news carrots are also good for our brain –our prefrontal cortex. Carotenoids have been found as being great cognition enhancers. We have the same finding with spinach. Gosh Popeye had it all figure out!

It’s about the breathing

Another Thursday evening and I am heading to the lake. Last week it was -1˚C air temperature, and 6˚C water temperature, my body about 37˚C, hum… It’s not about the cold, it’s all about the breathing, about the listening of the rhythm of the heart and somewhere it’s all about connecting with my own heart, its own strength. Slowing down movement to strengthen it? Slowing down movement to give it some spring, like the horse collecting before a jump?
