7 lessons 2020 has taught me.

I see so many people say that not much has happened in 2020 but looking back, for me that’s actually not true – especially not for the first half of the year. Quite a bit has happened in my life in 2020 and it has also taught me some lessons: Don’t ever take what you have for granted. Your situation might not be perfect but there will maybe come a time that you wish yourself back to this life you have right now and realize how beautiful and special it actually was. Being in a low place is okay. Feeling… Weiterlesen »7 lessons 2020 has taught me.

Memories Of A Life Without Social Media

Or without a smartphone really. This morning I woke up at 4.30 thinking about my life before I had a smartphone, before I had any social media account – which I find myself thinking about a lot lately. Now this is not gonna be a post about how toxic social media is, how social media ruined my life and so on. However, I definitely do think that social media can have a big impact on your mental health and that we need to be aware of why and how we use social media. With this post I want to remember… Weiterlesen »Memories Of A Life Without Social Media

2021 – what’s next?

Wow, it’s been a while since my last blogpost! I think that’s because I have a podcast now as well. It’s the place where I share a lot more personal topics which I before did here on this blog – my podcast is only in German though. However, I spontaneously decided, I wanna write a little update. I get quite a lot of questions from people – on social media and in real life – about what my plans are. If I’m staying in Germany, if I’m leaving again, where I plan on going, when I plan on leaving… Well,… Weiterlesen »2021 – what’s next?

Birthday Reflections: Who would have thought this would be my life at 32?

28th October – 32 years ago I was born into this world. It’s true that age is just a number but sometimes I still can’t believe I’m already 32. Wasn’t it just yesterday that I turned 18? And back when I was 18, would I have ever thought that my life would look the way it does now at 32? Probably not… I would’ve never thought that my early 30s would be so crazy. Back then I though that once you hit 30 your life is basically over because 30 is “so old”, how wrong I was, haha. So far… Weiterlesen »Birthday Reflections: Who would have thought this would be my life at 32?

My Fasting Experience

Last month I decided to go on a therapeutic fast (“Heilfasten” in German). I always wanted to do a real fast, just as an experiment and because I know there are true health benefits coming with it. I had done two 3-day juice fasts in the past but I feel they were not ideal as I constantly felt hungry because of all that fruit sugar spiking my blood sugar levels all the time. Now that I had just come back from Australia I felt this was the right time to take it slow, go inwards and to support the process… Weiterlesen »My Fasting Experience

Family and Friends don’t support you?

So many people are scared to leave the “normal” path, to try something new, because they are worried what their friends and family think.⁣ “they say this is a stupid idea”⁣ “they laugh about me”⁣ “they tell me I won’t be successful”⁣ “they don’t support me”⁣ ⁣ Okay… not ideal, a bit discouraging, I get it. But hey – so what?⁣ ⁣ Please don’t tell me you really let this keep you from pursuing your passions, your dreams?⁣ ⁣ Family and friends usually just want the best for you but let’s be honest – often they just don’t know what… Weiterlesen »Family and Friends don’t support you?

Masculine/Feminine Energy & Business

For years we have put a lot of emphasis on the masculine energy when it comes to business and leadership:⁣ action taking, efficiency, thinking, reasoning, giving, strenght⁣ ⁣ while labeling the feminine energy as weakness:⁣ feeling, intuition, creativity, nurture, softness, empathy, receptivity⁣ ⁣ The typical “hustle mentality” has always been associated with being successful and worthy.⁣ Fortunately the world is changing and people are waking up to the realization that it’s rather unhealthy to be in your masculine energy 24/7 – as men and women. You only need to look at how stressed and burnt out our society is. I… Weiterlesen »Masculine/Feminine Energy & Business

5am Club?!

Where are all my high-ambitious self-optimizing overachievers who belong to the 5am club? Just kidding…⁣ ⁣ But honestly: For years I thought to be successful you need to get up super early and hustle as if there’s no tomorrow. Personally I’m someone who naturally wakes up between 6 and 7 but that’s still not my most productive time. Even though I get up early I like to take my time and have a slow start into the day, maybe add in a workout, and then 2-3h later tackle my to-do list (typical chronotype „bear“). I used to get up between… Weiterlesen »5am Club?!

Be the author of your life.

If someone tells you that you can’t do XYZ – what they actually mean is that THEY can’t do XYZ.⁣ ⁣ We all see life through our own lense and we say what we say mainlybecause of our own experiences and belief systems.⁣ So don’t let anyone tell you what you can or can’t do.⁣Other people’s limiting beliefs don’t have to be yours.⁣ It’s always good to ask for advise and see if that helps you in your decision process. Family and friends usually only want the best for us butin the end only YOU know what’s the best for… Weiterlesen »Be the author of your life.
