Life outside design

trips, kundalini yoga and outdoors
When I'm not working, I'm doing kundalini yoga, walking around Helsinki or chilling on the couch with a book. Well, it's only partially true: doing nothing is actually my #1 non working activity.
To be honest, when I'm not working I sometimes feel lost and frustrated. It might take an effort to come up with non work-related activities.

Long walks around Helsinki area sometimes mean walking to my printing place to pick up orders or to a warehouse to get boxes and paper for postage and packaging.

Kundalini yoga was one of the best things that has happened to me. I had done gym regularly before. Not because I loved it, mostly because working from home requires some extra physical activity.

Now I feel excited about my classes and enjoy every moment. It's also because of our wonderful teacher and kind and supportive community. Finding a community to belong to is crucial when you are an expat, like me. I ended up cancelling my gym membership, no more tortures!

Traveling is always something to do. I'm up for anything: from short city breaks to hiking trips and beach holidays. However, my number one destination will always be Russia, my home country.

I love the contrast of quiet and peaceful Finland, and my Russian getaways full of fun and action: events, meetings with friends, concerts, theater, museums, comedy shows, bars, amusement parks! Usually by the end of my Russian trips I'm exhausted and dream about my cozy and quiet Finnish life.

Also, living in nordic climate my life and hobbies are very seasonal: swimming in the lakes and wakeboarding in summer, ice skating not leaving home for days in winter :)
