A szokás hatalma, hogy először angolul próbáltam értelmesnek tűnő mondatokat írni a 2000-es évekről, arról a bizonyos csapatról és arról a bizonyos emberről, aki miatt ma millióan gyászolnak – de gyorsan rá kellett jönnöm, hogy ezt senki más nem fogja érteni. Nem értheti az, aki nem élte át. Most tényleg magyarázzam el a 2000-es évek…

Corona Diaries, Week 323127…

Is it week 8? Week 9? How come has April lasted 5 minutes, but I feel like I’ve been in isolation for about 5 years and yet most of quarantine happened in April? Is time going slow or fast now? And how is it the 5th May today? Do we still clap on Thursdays? Is…

Corona Diaries, Week 4: it’s been too long

This post is to say hi to the outside World and to remind my future self of how it was to live in lockdown. In the future we’ll all refer to this period as the famous COVID-19 lockdown when we learnt how to reset ourself and find what’s really important in life. It’s week 4…

45-Minute Power Vinyasa Flow

Going to yoga studios or gyms has been out of the window in the past couple of weeks, so… back to good old online yoga. Besides training on a 101 basis with Mark Bonington, my favourite yoga teacher in London, I also try to practice every day on my own. After an extensive research, I…

Is veganism the answer?

I continue to be overwhelmed by my re-discovered love for the environment and its many, widely different segments: air pollution, plastic pollution, climate change, waste management, animal welfare or food consumption. Whilst these all sound very different, in my head they are very much linked together: as our global population grows (scarily almost doubled in…

Corona Diaries, Week 3: At least 2 meters apart

London is now ghost town-like with only the bravest left in the streets. Almost empty roads, totally empty double deckers. A city that was once vibrant and energetic is now filled with fear: fear of the unknown and invisible. I am keeping positive and upbeat, though. I’m trying my best to make the most out…

Basic yoga poses and what they mean

Yoga is so much more than stretching, as many people who don’t understand it think. Yoga is excellent for both the mind and the body, especially at uncertain times. I’ve been practising yoga for 6 years now. It helped me through break-ups, deaths, dramas, moving houses as much as happy times. It makes me feel…

Corona Diaries, Week 2: WC papír nélkül, avagy élet a londoni vesztegzárban

Boris Jonhson brit miniszterelnök múlt héten kért meg először mindenkit az országban, hogy picit próbáljunk viselkedni: lehetőleg kerüljük a nagy összejöveteleket, ne álljunk túl közel egymáshoz a boltban (“social distancing”) és dolgozzunk otthonról, ha tehetjük. Még a Premier League-et is felfüggesztették pár hétre, ami a legtöbb britnek nagyobb érvágás volt, mint maga a vírus okozta…

Stress relief yoga

It’s been a stressful couple of days for lots of different reasons. A new virus is turning our lives upside-down, we don’t socialise, don’t travel, don’t do things we’re used to doing. I cancelled a holiday I’ve been waiting for so much which was an extremely difficult decision. But hey, we are here now, here…

Corona Diaries, Week 1: working from home

A magyar verzióért görgess az oldal aljára On Monday, we were faced with the fact that things were really changing. Today I would have traveled to Barbados for my long-awaited Caribbean holiday, which I had canceled amid corona virus travel chaos Monday night, after the British government had asked people not to leave home. If…
