Staying healthy when working fulltime/having little time: Eating

Like I said in my previous post, I’d like to share some tips with you on how to eat healthy when you have limited time. So let’s get straight to the point, here’s what I’m doing: Eat a wholefood plantbased diet! For me this is the healthiest diet in the world and the cheapest and simplest as well! If you don’t have a lot of time between getting up in the morning and due to that have no time for breakfast, try to get up at least 15-20min earlier to get in a healthy breakfast – you will get used to this… Read More »Staying healthy when working fulltime/having little time: Eating

Staying healthy when working fulltime / having little time?

Many people say they don’t have the time for eating healthy and working out when they have a fulltime job. Especially a 9-5 job can be tricky as you leave the house in the morning and come home in the evening so you don’t have a full morning afternoon to get something done. I know how it feels, I just started working a fulltime job this week again but so far everything is fine. On a sidenote: No, I’m not sharing my experiences from 3 days of working, I already worked fulltime before I went studying and had quite a long… Read More »Staying healthy when working fulltime / having little time?

“Do I have an eating disorder?”

I guess there are people out there asking themselves this question. This may sound weird because you’d think that if you have one, you know it. But no, it’s not as easy as that. When I developed eating problems as a teenager I did not know I have an eating disorder even when I clearly had one. And it was not because I was denying it. It simply didn’t get to my mind that what I was doing was a mental disease. I thought I was just really good at loosing weight, that I was smart and found the right… Read More »“Do I have an eating disorder?”

How to fall asleep easier.

Currently I’m having quite some trouble with falling asleep at night as my mind just doesn’t stop working. I’m constantly worrying and overanalyzing everything. If you’re the same type of person as me, you know what I mean. I’m really working on not thinking and worring so much but at the moment I’m not really successful to be honest. There are some things though that help me to fall asleep and I thought I’d share them with you, maybe it helps someone. 🙂 do some sport to get rid of stress and to make your body tired take a warm bath… Read More »How to fall asleep easier.

The Perfect Diet

First of all: Of course, this is only my personal opinion. As I studied health promotion and have quite a lot of personal experience regarding this topic as well, I don’t think I shouldn’t sell myself short though. 😉 So, what is the perfect diet? In my opinion there is no such thing as a perfect diet. BUT what I definitely believe in is that a vegan diet is the best choice for anyone as I don’t think eating products coming from animal cruelty fuel your body and soul well. I don’t agree with people who say “our bodies are different and for… Read More »The Perfect Diet

Stay calm, don’t stress.

Another thought I want to share.

This week so far has been really stressful for me and I struggle with feeling exhausted and tired plus I have a headache which I didn’t have in a long time. Is it because I had so much work to do and couldn’t get enough sleep? No, not at all. It’s mental stress. And it’s because I stress myself though there is no need to. There have been some problems with my studies and this worried me so much. I couldn’t think about anything else. The worst thing was that I couldn’t do anything about the situation but waiting. But instead of calming down in the meantime because I couldn’t do anything anyway, I worried and worried.. and today the problem is almost solved. So I stressed about nothing, like so often. Through my studies I’ve learned though that it’s normal that you feel stressed the most about situations you don’t have any control of and can’t do anything yourself to solve a problem.

I also worry about the future a lot. My future at the moment is extremely uncertain, I have no idea what the rest of this year will look like. And this causes stress again. I know though that I should rather take this uncertainty as an exciting challence and as a chance for changing my life to the better. Isn’t it so much better to be excited and wondering about what will come than to just be stuck in the same routine everyday with nothing new happening?

How to start running and stay motivated.

They say money can’t buy happiness but it can buy running shoes and that’s kind of the same thing.

I’ve been running for almost 4 years now and I normally run about 3-4 times a week, sometimes less, sometimes more. I usually run between 8-10km (~10km/h). I just wanted to share some tips with you because I know how hard it can be to motivate yourself. I also want to point out that I’m not the fittest, most motivated, positive thinking,.. person around and that I was super unsporty when I started.. So if I can do it, anyone can. 😀
