Morning set up

Waking up between 05am-06.30am every morning (Thank you beloved son ...) is actually proving not to be that bad after all. I get so much done during the day and like when I was studying fashion design, graphic design, literature, medicine, (yes, I didn't really know what to do with my life in the beginning) etc, etc ... I always went up at 04am in the morning and read those 1000 pages of books about the human body, read those grand authors of classic pieces or whatever was needed. My brain absorbed everything like a sponge at those early hours and I think that's mostly how I managed to go through it.
And here I am today. Sitting in the early, bright morning, booking flight tickets, checking my calendar, looking at those "to do" lists and just planning the next two month or so. It's actually very joyful and I take great pleasure doing it. So Thank you dear little son for changing my morning habits to more efficient once!

    1. Ohh, a long story short. I was studying design and was trying to write a book when I meet this woman, she was so smart, intelligent and I was fascinated by her medical skills. And my mother has MS (multiple sclerosis) and I always wanted to understand her decease more and with that goal in mind I started.

    1. He normally goes to bed at 7.30pm so he sleeps 11 hours more or less and then 1 - 1 1/2 during daytime.

    1. Ha, ha ... and I am heading that direction! Alexis is the same, he screams for his morning formula and needs it before I can even take my first coffee zip!

  7. Stina, jag känner igen mig. Har inga barn men har vanana att kliva upp ca två timmar innan jag ska till jobbet bara fr att jag har så mycket mer energi (när jag väl är uppe..) och får så mycket mer gjort. Det blir verkligen mig egen tid och jag får landa i den nya dagen med egen tid och ofta då kloka tankar kommer till mig. Love it!

  8. Oh Stina I have the same hour of waking up in the morning than you, it's why I write you by phone very very early (I will have an I Pad soon (more easier to read) but I was sick all the time to go to by it..) but I dont understand how you still have the strenght to wait for M so late, to go out the evening and to be fresh.... I am DEAD after that each day unfortunately.... How do you do ? Give me your secret ! XXX

  9. Hejsan Stina!!! Jag vet ju att du är utbildad ssk och har några frågor, det är så att jag också läser till sjuksköterska och undrar hur du pluggade till en tenta, det var ju ett tag sedan du pluggade men tänkte ändå fråga om du har några tipps? Jag har ju som mål att arbeta inom estetisk icke kirurgi på någon privatklinik och undrar hur man ska komma dit, vad behöver man för erfarenheter, personlighet osv. Hur gjorde du när du hamnade på elipsekliniken bland annat? Eftersom du har flyttat från Stockholm så undrar jag vad du arbetar med nu? mvh. Elin! :) och grattis till nya tillskottet i familjen! :)

    1. Hej! Kul för dig!

      Jag gick på de föreläsningar jag tyckte var intressanta och som hade bra föreläsare. Annars skippade jag dem om de ej var obligatoriska och pluggade till mig informationen hemma. Men anteckningarna från en bra föreläsare var bra att ha många gånger och man fick också en uppfattning om VAD som skulle komma på tentan, inom vilka områden.

      Annars gick jag upp tidigt, då min hjärna var villig att suga in all text, läste, strök under den som jag fann viktigt, därefter gick jag tillbaka till mina överstrykningar, skrev en fråga om den informationen till mig själv på ett papper och svaret på ett annat papper. Därefter satt jag med ca: 200-300 frågor som jag hela tiden övade på och på så vis fick jag in även den mest komplicerade information och text.

      När det var läkemedelsberäkning där man behövde ha 100 procent rätt på båda tentorna, då var det endast råplugg som gällde. Men jag klarade bägge på första.

      Lycka till!

  10. Hi Stina,

    Loved the pic. I just bought some red and yellow tulips, and other spring flowers. For a while, imagined putting a vase near my laptop, but was afraid the glass would break, spilling water on it. Instead, they now sit near the windowsill, away from the sun light.

    I love my own time in the mornings, and have learnt to wake up really early, 5-6. Mainly because of my office schedule, partly because my body just wants to get up early, even during the weekends.

    I love the spring, and am already waiting for the summer. You mentioned booking flight plans, are you travelling somewhere in Europe?

    Take care.

  11. Hej Stina!

    Jag gillar din blogg och dina tankar. Kan du rekommendera sjuksköterskeutbildningen? Skulle du ha valt samma sak igen? Jag funderar på att söka in till Sophiahemmet till hösten.

    1. Maria,

      Absolut, oavsett vart livet tar dig är det en fantastisk kunskap och allmänbildning du kommer bära med dig! Eller läs till Läkare om du har betygen för dig. Det är underbart att arbeta med att hjälpa andra.
