Hello 1 January!

Updated: Oct 4, 2023

How did you begin your first morning of 2023? I went on a forest walk and filled my cup of nature and zen with 4 minutes of cold bathing in 0.8 Celsius. Magical! It’s been a few months since my latest cold exposure but after 5-10 sec of initial trembling when going in, a complete, pure sense of calmness took over. In the blink of an eye, or a power switch movement, nothing but physical and inner zen.

My first encounter with cold bathing was before the pandemic, early 2020 in a Norwegian, icy and very cold Fjord surrounded by icy blue skies and snowy mountains. That very first ice bath memory is close to my heart and always will be. This year I want to create new memories abroad in wild, cold nature. Possibly by combining it with exploring my roots in the deep, primeval forest in Finland.

Today is a day just as any, but it’s also the first page of a new chapter, the year ahead in the book of 2023. What are your wishes or intentions for this next chapter in your personal book?

Whatever you dream to do, feel or accomplish, know that you are the author. Make it happen. Tiptoe if you must, but take the step.

With love/Hanna
