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… Read More »My Fasting Experience

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… Read More »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… Read More »5am Club?!

Intuitive Eating

Do you struggle with an unhealthy relationship with food? Trust me, I understand. For me intuitive eating is something I had to learn again after struggling with an unhealthy relationship with food for the majority of my teenage years up until my mid-twenties. Undereating, overeating, not eating at all, weird eating rules,.. I already left all of that behind years ago with some small relapses inbetween, especially when I got sucked into that whole „high carb low fat“ lifestyle for a little while. I’m so grateful that today I’m able to listen to my body again, for me that’s all… Read More »Intuitive Eating

Intermittent Fasting? Diet Update.

A few months ago I talked about why I’m not practicing intermittent fasting. In case you wanna read about this first, you can find the blogpost here. However, sometimes your eating habits change because of your current life situation or just because you choose to try something new. So actually right now I’m kinda practicing intermittent fasting by accident, just that it’s not breakfast I leave out but dinner. Before you judge and say it’s unhealthy, I only do it to lose weight etc. – wrong, that’s not the case at all. First of all: I actually never got the… Read More »Intermittent Fasting? Diet Update.

Why I don’t practice intermittent fasting.

Someone asked me about my thoughts on intermittent fasting so I’m gonna share them with you. First of all: Just because I do not practice what’s typically understood under the term “intermittent fasting” does not mean that you shouldn’t do it. Everyone is different, it may work super well for you. It also depends on what situation you are in. What time you get up, go to bed, what job you are in, where you live etc. So why do I not practice intermittent fasting? 1. I LOVE breakfast, I always did. It’s truly something I look forward to in the… Read More »Why I don’t practice intermittent fasting.

My 5-Day Juice Cleanse Experience

[Enthält Werbung/Contains Advertising]   I said goodbye to coffee, oatmeal, chocolate, nut butter, pancakes and all my other favourite foods for 5 days from 21th to 25th November because of a 5-day juice fast.

They offer a lot of different treatments. 1 day, 3 days, 5 days,.. and also with different products. I got my delivery on time as promised and felt very well supported during my fast. I chose the 5-day treatment with 4x 500ml green juice, 1x 250ml… Read More »My 5-Day Juice Cleanse Experience

Oil Pulling – how & why?

Oil pulling has become a big trend recently and I’ve been doing it for about a year now as well – it’s actually one of the best routines I’ve added to my daily life. So, what is this oil pulling and why is it beneficial for your health? How to do it: Do it first thing in the morning, before drinking, eating or brushing your teeth. Take about 1tbsp of oil into your mouth. You can use any organic cold-pressed oil but it’s said that coconut oil is the most effective and I haven’t tried any other oils. Tbh the… Read More »Oil Pulling – how & why?
