Hi guys, I got back from a very special girls-weekend in Lugano. I spent 24 hours with Alisa, one of my best friends in one of our favourite towns; Lugano in the Italian part of Switzerland. We basically ate and drank and talked and stayed in the sun. But now to something much more important and something worth mentioning….something I also spoke about with Alisa, about performing and rewinding. The art of relaxing, something which is very difficult and why these get aways are crucial for me.
My life feel sometimes like this; Up down, right, left, back forth….and then all over again. Sometimes it is hard, very hard for me to rewind and relax or in fact most of the times. Ever since I was small I felt like I had some kind of super energy that lives inside me. At this age I know what it is called, or what people likes to box it like, mostly AHAD. Some might named it illness, but I prefer get any diagnose and simply use my super powers wisely. I’m not ill, I’m just different and I take it to my advantage. But the difference between others or for example my partner is that I need to do thing differently. For example before sleeping; I need to follow some rules to make my brain understand that bedtime is coming up otherwise it will take hours for me to fall asleep.
It is essential for me to have a cozy environment at home at night, by turning down the lights, listen to calm music (if music at all), light a candle and do “evening rituals” like brushing my teeth before 22.00. (I try to be in bed latest 22.30). Things that make me not be able to sleep is talking about too much business, eating too late, drinking alcohol or listen to loud music or action movies. These latter things I simply need to avoid. Sometimes, it can be difficult when you share your life with someone, and yes, of course I make exceptions but most of the times I go to another room when we have different wants. This might seem selfish, but luckily I live with someone who understands.
