Days Are Really Getting Shorter In The Northern Hemisphere - How To Cope With It?

As the days are getting shorter and shorter this time of year and darkness is over us both when we go to work and when we go home in the afternoon, I believe it's very important to focus as much as possible on the brighter things. 

Personally, I try to do that by slowing down the speed in the things I do and really try to enjoy the moment, whatever it is I'm doing. It could be when I eat, take a shower, walk to and from the bus every day (I have a 10-15 minutes walk to the bus stop, depending on which bus I take). Finding the small glimmer of brightness in the dark time of the year can really make a difference.

I mean, we don't have to do everything on our schedule right away, do we? Some things can actually wait until the next day, or...?

Yes, there are certain things we need to do each day, or regularly, but if you have a hectic schedule, try to cool it off, sort out a few things that actually can wait. It all comes down to your priorities and what matters to you, not to someone else, but what matters to YOU and this applies to both your private and professional life.

Having a blog like the one you're reading right now is something that makes me relax, because I really enjoy writing and knowing that other people have a benefit and joy from reading it. Likewise do I find great joy in posting on social media like the sites where you can follow me. Links are in the sidebar of this blog. If you're not able to see them for one reason or another, here they are:

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube and Odysee. Please note that if you want to chat and communicate with me, it's being done in WowApp, and that's simply because we will make money from using it.

How do you cope with the dark time of the year and when things in general are getting tough in your life?

Take care and have a great day.

A Great Lunch In Town Is Never Wrong

Since yesterday evening (Friday) and until tomorrow I'm on a short weekend getaway with my wife. Took a flight to a nice hotel with spa and saunas so we can really relax. Today we went out for a lunch and had a great experience. Cozy place with nice staff, clean and tidy, and the most important - great food.

If you have the chance, do take a little time off and spoil yourself a little bit. It's really energizing, even if it's only for a day. Never forget that it's important to get out of your house and see something else. Being home is great but so is getting around to whatever which will provide you with new energy.

I made a short video of me having fun with a good beer that I had at that lunch restaurant.

Enjoy it, and have a great day!

New Page On My Blog - This Time About How To Contact Me

Hey Folks,

In order to get in touch with me and have me replying to your message, you should check the Contact Page on this blog. It clearly describes a great way to keep in touch and how to earn real money at the same time, all for FREE.

Why not getting paid for the things that you do already? We chat and talk to others so many times every day, and what if we could get money for doing so? Have you ever thought about how many chat messages we actually send to others? How many times we talk to others? Friends and family that you want to stay in touch with, all around the world? All of this can be done for FREE (we all know that), but you can actually also get paid real cash for it.

WowApp offers all this, and so much more. I will do an in-depth review of this little app at a later time, but for now, just get it and share it with others. New accounts can only be made through an invitation, so you should get it, verify your info (phone and email), grab your personal link and share it with everyone.

I won't say more at this time since like I just wrote, an in-depth review will be done at a later time.

Have a great day, and hope to hear from you through WowApp.

Now You Have Links To My Social Sites

As you can see, I'm working on my blog. It takes time and I can only reach a few small things every day. At least I've now included links to the other sites where you can find me, as well as a welcome video. Check them out if you like. :) Not all of them have much content though, but it will come.

Besides doing this, I'm also planning on doing some kind of "VLOG" (video blog) and posting my videos on a few video platforms. They will be kind of "unformal" and very much from everyday things, but we'll see how it will develop.

Today is a very short post, but feel free to check out my social sites, and remember to download WowApp and register your account so we can chat if you like.

Have a wonderful saturday! :)

Friday Evening Feeling Relaxed - But Do People Really Read What I Write?

Hey everyone,

After coming home from work (yes, I do have an office work mon-fri) and had dinner with my lovely wife, I sat down by my computer, checked a few mails, jumped into my social accounts and was happy to gain some new friends and followers. Felt like writing a little, so here you go... :)

The thing that strikes my mind tonight is how little people very often pay attention to what you say and/or write. Things simply move too fast, and people get so much information that they clearly most of the time can't sort out what they're really interested in taking part in.

It shouldn't be like this. If you decide to become a friend with someone and follow him/her, you should really take the time to interact with that person, or at least take part in what he/she has to say. Sure, quite often we simply don't have the time to look into things immediately, but it doesn't change the fact that we should really be active and check out what the person you're following has to say.

My simple advice in this regard is to really spend a little time to check out what your friends and people you follow have to deliver and say. You'll quickly find out if they have something of interest to you. If not, simply skip them and move on to someone who has the things and information that appeals to you.

A little Friday evening thought from me.

Take care

Ulf Astrom dot Com - why this blog?

So this is my first post on my new blog, something that I hope will be a place you will return to often and regularly. I will be writing about a big variety of things in life. Everything from what I do, relations and family life, my job, interests, travel, making money and pretty much the things that are on my mind.

Consider this as a personal blog with no dedicated niche. I simply like to write about things in life, and I assume you like to read about such as well. :)

I've been online since the start of this Millennium and have done lots of things online. Everything from just surfing around and watching videos and everything you can do, I've also run some business online (and still do), presented videos from my time as a musician, and socializing with people around the world. In that aspect, we have to admit that the Internet is simply a wonderful thing.

This blog will be my main source of communication, although you can find me on other platforms as well. You also find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok and Tumblr. For communication/chat with me, I will only accept one platform which is WowApp, and that's simply because that app (similar to WhatsApp, Skype etc.) pays real cash for using it, and it's available worldwide. Communicating online and not using WowApp is simply cheating yourself for FREE CASH.

So, now you know what you can expect here, and feel free to hook up with me over WowApp and/or follow me on any of the above mentioned platforms.

Have a great day!
