Welcome to my blog Sinimalism! I’m Sini and this blog is contemplating deeply and much less deeply topics like minimalistic lifestyle, traveling, healthy lifestyle and sports. Even humor and sarcasm may be found between and on the lines. I also love contemplating different phenomenon from a psychological or philosophical point of view. It would be cool to make a clear demonstration of the theme of the texts contained in this blog, saying, for example, that this is a minimalism blog. However, I do not want to make such a clear cut, because I want to keep blogging as a hobby, which keeps it organic and authentic as well. If you were looking for the traditional lifestyle blogs with outfits of the day, cosmetics and always so visual content that the text is only to make it look nicer, this is not what you’re looking for. Instead, you can find quirky, questioning and sarcastic things here. However, I’m talking about “lifestyleblog” topics, let me introduce a bit more!
As the name Sinimalism can already deduce, this blog also contributes to my vision of minimalism. What it is for me, how it comes out everyday and to whom this lifestyletrend fits. Or in general, can it be defined so easily?
Traveling close to the heart
I love traveling and contemplating how different environments and countries make you behave differently. I also love mulling over why things are different in different countries and cultures. As far as studies are concerned, I am Bachelor of Hospitality Management, specialized in outdoor sports tourism. In autumn 2016 I continued studies at the University of Lapland studying Masters of Tourism Research and applied psychology as minor. However, cold bothered me a bit and I’m currently living in Malta and work full time, so my studies are waiting for me in Rovaniemi for a while. However, I am sure that I will continue my studies when the time is right, because believe it or not, school is fun! Anyhow, you will surely find thoughts of traveling in general and stories of my trips ,as well as living abroad, from this blog! I will also share rather sarcastic lists of different countries, such as 10 don’ts in Finland.
I won’t be filling the blog with unnecessarily scientific text, as it would only cause grey hair for both me and readers. Anyhow, I may think of a few everyday topics and phenomenon more philosophically or psychologically. My way of writing may seem a bit grey to some, because I don’t want to see things black and white, one way or the other. I’m not trying to state my point of view is correct and prove others’ suck, but rather to awaken some curiosity and thinking. “I don’t want you to think like me, I just want you to think!” For example, I was contemplating sporty lifestyle and physical labour here a bit. On the other hand, you can find contemplation of such a simple topic as Instagram as well, like this one. https://sinimalism.com/instagram-tarina-vs-visuaalisuus/
Free bodyweight and gym workouts
From now on I will share my personal workouts and other good findings freely on my blog. In that way I can easily find them by myself and anybody else can as well utilize them if they wish so. What bothers me nowadays is the high prices of sporty lifestyle. I think sports should be accessible for everyone!
My background is in aesthetic group gymnastics. Moreover, I’ve dance some dancing when I studied performing arts for a year. Jazz, Contemporary Dance, Ballet, Show – these are the ones. At the moment I’m working out at gym, as well as doing these dance and gymnastics routines and fun fitness workouts. More of the workouts you can find here.
It seems that this theme is now the core of all lifestyle blogs, which in itself is not a bad thing. I will put my spoon to this soup as well, telling my tips, points of view and also confusion about this whole concept. Why is healthy lifestyle so often seen as something that is difficult and uncomfortable to get? For example, there can become flaws like this to people: Confidence based on sports
