Do you feel like your days are filled with work, chores and duties and that life isn’t all that peachy at times. Well, join the club. Life isn’t all about the ups, but also about coping with the downs. Life is about finding balance. To find balance in life you need to be in touch with yourself and most importantly you need to listen to your inner voice.
“So, what’s an inner voice?” you might ask. As it’s your inner voice it is completely individual, but can be both on a sublime subconscious level or an active dialogue with yourself. It’s that hunch you get if something is wrong or right, worth doing or even more simple things in life such as “do I really need another pair of jeans?” (to which the answer of my inner voice always comes with a clear yes, so yeah, it’s not fool proof).
There are more than one way to get in touch with your inner self. Often it is with the aid of others. I talk a lot with a few selected friends, my family, but also consult a medium every now and then, go to a psychiatrist if I feel the need to get some issues worked out, talk to my cosmic guides (yeah, I know, some of you are beginning to start to question my sanity at this point), have a chat with God and even my spirit animal that sits on my shoulder protecting me.
Now you don’t have to be as extreme as me to get in touch with your inner self. Something that works for a lot of people, me included, is listening to music. My first collaboration on the blog was with Sudio Sweden so it’s with pride I now collaborate with them to bring you good quality at an affordable price. I could go on praising the design, the comfort of the headphones or the quality of the sound, which are all part of Sudio Sweden and their products, but that’s needless to say as I don’t promote crappy products and I’m not biased even if these happen to be Swedish.
What you listen to is up to you, but I listen to whatever suits my mood, be it meditative and soothing music or something more upbeat to get me going. And I know there’s been lots of the Biebs on my shirts as of lately, but honestly I’m not a Belieber per definition. H&M just happens to have a great collab with him and hey, who knows which Justin I’m referring to…
What my inner voice told me this day at the skate park was not to try skating and it was right. I had a skateboard (made of plastic) when I was like 6 years old and I wasn’t good at it then and I’m sure as heck not good at it now either and have the bruises after this photo shoot with Joanna to prove it. But the things we do to get those perfect shoots right? That can be applied to all areas in life. Step out of your comfort zone. Do something you’re not good at. You’ll find out that often it turns out you actually don’t suck at it at all (except for when it comes to me and skating). As my jacket states: Break or bust!
If you get in touch with your inner self by actively listening to your inner voice or not, music is a good aid in that. These wireless Sudio Sweden Regent headphones are the perfect accessory even on the move as I involuntary had to get an iPhone 7 (long story, but I did like the 6S better) and as you all know you need converters and what not to use earphones or headphones with that phone, so going wireless is a perfect option for me. I used these on the airplane yesterday and they really shut out all outside noise as well which is perfect when you want to escape the world for a moment. Last but not least. You get 15% off any purchase with the code “falkenstedt15″ when you head over to Sudio Sweden’s website and they also give you a complimentary case for your phone with your purchase. Get in touch with your inner self or just listen to some good music with quality products, preferably do both.
