It's strange not to go to work as usual, but these are also unusual times. What a great opportunity it is to be able to work from home and have contact with colleagues and the outside world anyway, despite everything that happens ...

But that's the thing about never getting out of work when it is on the kitchen table, constantly having work-related material around me and not being free without checking the e-mail and Skype to see if someone has searched for me or something has happened. It would be nice to have a space for work and one for leisure. The lunch in the middle of the job is no longer fun.

How lucky I am to work for Tentipi, the world's leading manufacturer of Nordic tipis, the tent type used by nomads since way back! Now my home office is out in the garden in the form of a Safir 9. There are both connections to the internet and power from the house. It becomes an office where the air never goes out of me.

What a psychological difference to walk the few meters to the tent and get into the outdoor office to work. When I then take a break and rest I come out in the middle of the garden environment, the fresh breeze and the sunshine. The body and the brain realize that it is a break, that the break means rest and that the work can wait. A bonus is that all blocks, pens, computer and cables get away from the kitchen table.

A nice working environment. The opportunity to go to work at home but away. The office where a mug of tea is always close. There are benefits to arranging a home office and maybe I want to use it one day a week even in the future. The future will show.

How to repair your Tentipi tent?

Thursday 8th October 2020

Sometimes you have to repair your Tentipi tent. Some things you can manage yourself, others you need help to do. Here are some tips from Tentipi.

Christian Reinwarth and Judith Senger live near Düsseldorf in Germany. They visited Tentipi, Sunne, a Friday in July to get a tent repaired, to buy a floor and to expand their tent range with an Olivin in cotton/polyester. That’s their fifth Tentipi tent and in an interview the couple told how it comes they are so fond of Nordic tipis from Tentipi. They gave some advice for camping as well.

The scents of nature always smell good, right? Well, that's a truth with exaggeration. There are such amounts of different smells, and they are experienced in different ways due to experiences, memories and circumstances that you do not always know. The sense of smell is more or less developed and this makes it difficult to know what others feel about scents. How much the sensory cells are exposed to a certain smell also determines how you feel about it. The olfactory cells can be tired by an intense scent and if another comes close, it feels much stronger. Now there is research that shows that you can feel well about different smells and researchers have managed to find out how some everyday scents develop.

Give yourself a day

Tuesday 14th July 2020

Give yourself a time, a place, give yourself peace with opportunities to be right here and now. A quiet day when you are at the centre of your care in the meadow, in the woods, on the mountain top, on the hills, on the beach wherever you get the rest you need.

When large parts of the world are in quarantine and many countries have imposed restrictions on travel and crossing borders because of the Corona virus, our colleague, Lena Grahn has reflected on whether anything positive can come out of this crisis.
