Ljusterapi=light therapi=happiness

Every day when I get off the bus on my way home from work, I see this ad and wish I was in it. Sitting on the beach in the warm sun feels so far away right now as the Stockholm sun rises and hovers just above the horizon for a few short hours each day.

For now, though, the light and color this ad brings to my walk home will have to suffice, at least until

A) a fairy drops a bag of cash on my doorstep which i will promptly use to fly far away to a warm place. i'm thinking south africa, maybe thailand? or perhaps an island somewhere...


B) summer comes, which requires waiting for 6 more long months

Guess I don't have much of a choice on this one. But there is a redeeming factor: the days are getting longer now, by almost 4 minutes every day. So in just 2 weeks, we've got a whole extra hour of light! That's at least one thing you can rely on in Swedish winters, which I'm learning are more unpredictable than not.  


  1. Haha, you are already talking AND thinking like a swede Katie :-)

    1. Hahha I guess it's bound to happen sooner or later ;)
