How To Maintain A Healthy Lifestyle While Traveling – 12 Tips

Staying healthy and fit while traveling isn’t possible? Sure it is! Here are 12 tips that hopefully are helpful for you: Make Health A Priority I guess, the most important thing is to start your travels with the right mindset. If you’re already telling yourself “oh, once I’m on vacation, I probably won’t be eating healthy or work out anymore anyway”, this probably is what’s going to happen. On the other hand, if you decide for yourself to keep your healthy lifestyle or at least quite a healthy lifestyle while traveling, you’ll find a way to make it happen only due to…

Exercise “Comeback” Motivation

As you might know, I love running and usually I run about 8-10km on 3-4 days every week. From October to December last year, I had a 3-month break from running because of knee pain that I always got after running. I went to the doctor but the reason for this pain couldn’t be found so that I just decided to take a break from running to try and cure my knee. Just as a little side note.. that’s not what this post is about. What I want to tell you with this blogpost is to get back into your usual exercise…

My 3-day juice cleanse experience.

I’ve heard so many people talking about their experiences with juice fasting or juice cleansing, whatever you may call it, so I decided to give it a go. Definitely not to lose weight because that’s not what fasting is about and even if you lose some weight, it’s not sustainable when you don’t eat a healthy diet for the rest of the year. I simply wanted to do this out of curiosity, I’ve never done anything like this before. As I said, I’ve heard a lot about it – good and bad things – so I wanted to try it myself to…

What to love about winter and how to stay positive & healthy during this season.

It’s beginning to look a lot like christmas..❄️⛄ I know, many people don’t like winter and really struggle with staying happy and positive. Some people get seriously depressed during that time. I’m a person that loves winter (not driving through snow with my car though..). There are a lot of things to love about christmas time and winter time in general. However, not gonna lie – I often struggle with keeping a positive mindset during this cold and dark season as well. So let me share with you a few things that help me to cheer up and that make…

Getting into meditation: My experience with “Headspace”

I’ve heard a lot of people, especially happy and successful people, talk about what benefits they get from meditating regularly. Even my ex-boyfriend was always meditating when we were together and I saw it was doing him good. I never meditated in the past. I sometimes tuned in some guided meditation on my laptop before going to bed to be able to fall asleep easier. This works really good for me but I wouldn’t really say that I was meditating as the purpose of meditating isn’t to fall asleep, I guess.. A few weeks ago I heard about the app called “Headspace” for the first time.…

Eat slower, feel better.

Sometimes I catch myself eating too fast and not feeling my best afterwards. I believe a lot of people have this problem. In our stressful times, we of often don’t have the time to spend a lot of time on eating or we just don’t appreciate the food we have enough to take our time to fully and slowly enjoy it as it is available all the time. We all know that it is pretty unhealthy to eat very quickly though. First of all, the feeling of satiety usually just kicks in after 15-20 minutes so that we tend to eat more than we…

Can a vegan diet heal a pollen allergy?

Since I was about 12 years old I had to deal with hay fever every summer and often it was really heavy. So heavy that during some times I had to get up earlier in the morning as my sneezing otherwise would have kept me from getting ready for school in time. My record was sneezing about 85 times in a row. Some days I could not put my contact lenses in because my eyes were too swollen and were itching way too much. Just to give you an idea of how bad it was.. I went vegan around March/April last year, so right…

There’s more to health than just diet and exercise.

A lot of people that approach a topic such as health, mainly talk about eating a healthy diet and working out but leave everything else aside. In my opinion, the mental components are so underrated although I believe that they belong to the main influences when it comes to being healthy. I just came home from another trip to Morocco this week and I realized once again what positive effects trips like this one have on my health. Everytime I’m travelling, I feel better than when I’m at home although my diet may not be as healthy as at home or I may not work out as much. On…

What we think we become.

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.” – Buddha I’d like to share with you some of my thoughts on the law of attraction and my experience with it. You’ve never heard of this law? Well, basically, this quote of Buddha above says it all but here is good definition that I’ve found: “The belief that positive thoughts are magnets for positive life experiences and negative thoughts are magnets for negative life experiences. Based on the law of attraction, if you have a specific desire and…

Skincare: Maybeauty Incredible Face Gel

[English below] Da es hier um eine deutsche Marke geht, gibt es mal einen deutschen Artikel. 😉 In meinem letzten Beitrag zur Gesichtspflege habe ich darüber geschrieben, dass ich natürliche Produkte wie Teebaumöl und Heilerde liebe. Die Firma Maybeauty hat mir jedoch angeboten, mir ihr Gesichtsgel zum Probieren zuzusenden und über meine Erfahrung zu berichten und ich habe gerne zugesagt. Warum? Erstens probiere ich total gerne neue Sachen aus, solange sie nicht schädlich sind und für mich ethisch vertretbar. Und dieses Geld ist wunderbarerweise TIERVERSUCHSFREI und VEGAN! Ich bin immer dafür, Firmen, die vegane und tierversuchsfreie Kosmetik und Pflegeprodukte anbieten, zu unterstützen,…
