Daily rituals with Jiho
I am focusing on recovering my body's energy as it has been lost from bad diet habits and lack of exercise.
My morning moment with tea
On cooking at home
I really like to make everything simple; simple cooking methods, simple ingredients and simple flavours.
Especially summer season vegetables, they are amazing both raw and cooked.
I normally prepare carrot, courgette and beetroot with the spiralizer and add some herb pesto, which I made out of herbs from our garden, then mix with leafy vegetable, nuts, lemon zest and juice. It is easy, quick and so delicious.
My favourite space at home
I used to live in an apartment in a big city before moving in to New Zealand, and always craved greenery and the ocean. Now, living in New Zealand, I can see the forever changing organic surroundings without any extra effort. This certainly gives me a privileged feeling, like I am having a holiday after work!
On keeping a healthy lifestyle
I recently had bad back and menstrual pains, and found that I have a terrible habit of always standing on one leg or holding my bag on one side. Both of which eventually made my spine kink. These days, I am trying to move slower and listen to my body, practice using the energy of my body evenly.
On keeping creative endeavours fuelled
Although I have very narrow and limited hand skills, I often find myself making something with my hands. They are mostly things I haven’t tried to do before, like knitting, drawing, paper making, collage with scrap papers, and so on. I don’t necessarily want to make them all perfect, I am just very satisfied once I have figured out something new — things that look complicated to me like knitting a jumper. All of these little challenges give me a more varied view and helps me to build my own tastes.
