Needed some #focus I’ve been laying low from social media until now. I needed “me” time and I needed to “organize” myself. I also had a procedure on my arm which took me away from gym, sauna and swimming - so the time was right to take a chill and get my head in the books again 🤓Thanks to all of you who have written messages to me and helped keep me motivated and loved 💜 as a result I actually have a couple of super exciting announcements to make early next week! Feels like the #grind is starting to pay off because opportunities are finding their way towards me and also I am meeting some amazing people who are on the same vibration and same mission 🙏💪 super grateful for everyone who shows me love here and #staytuned🔥

Sometimes you have to take destiny into your own hands ❄️💪🧘‍♂️💜 life is a 360 degree experience - if you choose it to be. Get the blinkers off, test, try, play, fall, fail, win, lose, laugh, cry, feel........DO! Do something different each day that challenges you on some level - you’ll be surprised at your own bodies response and reaction - you might even enjoy it....even just a little 😜

Bobbing for ice cold 🍎 🍏?
Not exactly....one of my favorite ways to experience the cold water is to submerge my face and activate the “mammalian diving reflex”. It’s a unique evolutionary adaptation in us human beings 😊 basically it’s an override of the autonomic nervous system (ANS)that is triggered by the cold, when a message is sent to your brain, vagal nerve (through your nasal receptors) and ANS - that optimizes oxygen usage. Heart rate reduces (up to 25%), vasoconstriction (veins narrowing) reducing blood circulation, blood compresses and flows towards vital organs and the spleen will contract and release highly oxygenated blood💪it’s basically how we are able to spend longer times under the water, and when you train this you can spend longer and longer under the water surface. Pretty nifty that evolution “thing” huh? ❄️🧘‍♂️🛀💜💪

Enlightenment must come little by little, or else it would overwhelm 💚
In other words - patience - this weeks mantra. Trust the process and enjoy the process🧘‍♂️

Flowing water never goes stale, so keep flowing - Bruce Lee 🔥💪 I had so much fun this week, meeting new people, getting nice feedback on things I’ve worked on and being touched by some amazing people in Instagram💜 when I stop to look at it all and observe - there hasn’t been too much of a plan. I’ve been “flowing”. I’ve been my authentic self and have just done things that felt “right” or “correct”. I let go of outcomes and just did the things that I felt I wanted to share.....it feels great, it feels free🧘‍♂️ thanks to everyone who has been part of this week! Now - time for a swim naturally 😅

Thalassophile - (n). a lover of the sea; someone who loves the sea/ocean - add this to my ever growing list of “syndromes” 💙

More fun in the sun ❄️🔥💪🧘‍♂️💜

You can’t calm the storm, so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself. The storm will pass 🧘‍♂️
You cannot control the world, but you can control how you react to it and the constant ebb and flow that is “life”. Breathing is the anchor, you are the ship in a storm.....breathe - be grounded, be solid, be resilient, be adaptive and you will learn when and how to ride the waves and when to head to harbor and anchor 💜

Spent some time with this amazing human being here, Stephen, who came to my workshop from Ireland 🇮🇪! Growing up, Stephen had lengthy issues with his lungs - lung capacity under 20% - until he received a lung transplant. You wouldn’t know anything different today, as he has such an amazingly positive and honest outlook towards life and nothing slows him down 💜 it was such an experience to have met him and become mates. There is no stopping him - even here at @loylyhelsinki he dives on in to the Baltic despite “algae warning” 😂😂😂 I had to join him😜 a courageous human and an inspiration to others for sure 🦁❤️🙏

Ice bath fam 💜❄️🔥💪🧘‍♂️
A few first time ice bathers, but instant pros have been born 💪Such a great group of people coming from all over, including #ireland and #usa and different cities in #finland 💜

Pretty much becoming part of the workout routine at this point 😎

No sun. No sparkle in the water. Too quiet. Supposed to be summer. It’s cloudy. No one around to talk to. Water is cold. On my own. It’s Monday. I love it 💜🧘‍♂️
