Why climbing is so important to me

I climb a lot nowadays.. 3-4 times a week. Three hours at a time. And it feels like I’m talking about climbing all the time.
I have never felt this strong and healthy in my life. And it doesn’t even feel like I’m exersicing.
Climbing does not only make me stronger, but it makes me incredibly happy and relaxed. I’m not as tired as I used to be on a daily basis.
Climbing does not allow you to think about anything else than what you are doing at that time, you take away your thoughts from work and all that every day stress and anxiety disappears.
I try to challenge myself every session. Even if I don’t make it. I’m trying, and if I’m not trying, I will not get any better.
I also climb because I have control issues, and climbing really helps me with that!
I really love the climbing community, it’s very open and social. You can go there alone and be alone if you like. But if you feel social you can easily find someone to climb with. Find someone who climbs the same problem as you and ask them for tips and tricks. There are people in all ages at the climbing gym, and people are usually very happy to help you!
The climbing gym itself is full of amazing colors, and just being there makes me happy, and inspired!

Also, It’s the only sport I have tried that doesn’t affect my rheumatism in a bad way! Which is weird because I’m using parts of mybody that would usually affect me.. but no. It works absolutely amazing for me and that is the absolute best part! I’m basically never in pain anymore. I haven’t been able to do any sports in years because of my diagnosis, so this a huge thing for me.

And yes.. you’re always bruised somewhere, your hands usually look like shit and your body is almost always sore somewhere, and you can never have long nails, I ruin all my training clothes… but it’s all worth it.

I think it’s a sport you either love or hate. I fell in love from the first second. I knew from first second that this was something that I was supposed to do for a long time! And it’s such an important part of my life now 🙂 it’s a passion for sure!

Do I have any fellow climbers in here? why do you climb?
Or is there any other thing that is important in your life in a similar way?

I miss the adventures

Jag har börjat sakna äventyr och natur otroligt mycket. Jag är uppvuxen med att åka skidor varje år, paddla kanot, laga mat på stormkök, tälta, gå i scouterna och överlag göra väldigt mycket saker utomhus, klättringen förra året gav mig verkligen blodad tand.
Jag har alltid varit en otroligt aktiv person, och det börjar visa sig nu. för jag är inte helt nöjd med hur det ser ut just nu! Det här är inte jag. Jag började lite smått förra året med att ta topprepskort och klättrade mitt första berg, men nu måste det bli mer än så!
Jag sitter ner alldeles för mycket på min röv inomhus, och det gör mig bara SÅ trött och oinspirerad.
Bokade precis in så jag kan ta ledklättringskort redan nästa vecka. Har dragit ut på det så jäkla länge nu. Så tänkte att det är lika bra att bara ringa och boka på en gång, sluta vänta på att någon ska göra det med mig, jag får träffa folk på vägen som är lika passionerade som jag helt enkelt.  Då kan jag ÄNTLIGEN boka in mig på en klätterresa i Kalymnos i maj! Och så har jag även pratat med Emma om att åka ner till Alperna igen i sommar och ev. bestiga Mount Blanc. Funderar även på att göra fjällrävenklassikern med brorsan.

Jag vill verkligen ut i naturen, jag vill vandra, klättra, insupa vackra vyer och utmana mig själv! Linus tyckte jag kanske borde sadla om till äventyrare, kanske ska göra det, vad tror ni? Makeupartist och äventyrare? en rätt bra kombo ändå.

ENGLISH:
I have begun to miss adventure and nature so much. I grew up skiing every year, paddling a canoe, cooking outside, sleeping in tents, being in the scouts and generally doing a lot of things outdoors. Overall, I have always been a very active person. Right now I’m not entirely happy with how life looks like. I need more adventure and nature.
I’m sitting way too much on my ass indoors, and it makes me so tired and uninspired.
Just booked a class to take the lead climbing card already next week.  Then I can book the a climbing trip to Kalymnos in May! And so I also talked to Emma about going down to the Alps again this summer and possibly. climb Mount Blanc. Also thinking about doing the fjällräven classic with my brother

I really want to be outside, I want to hike, climb, soak in beautiful views and challenge myself! Linus thought maybe I should be an adventurer instead. what do you think? Makeup artist and adventurer? a pretty good combo anyway.. 😛
