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…

How to attract people into your life? Love who you are.

You know these cool people? These people that anyone knows, that everyone thinks are just so cool and with whom people wanna hang out with? I’m sure you do, we all do. So, here’s a little story: When I was a teenager and even a little bit older, I went out quite a lot at the weekends and I always looked up to these “cool” people who always got invited to parties and stuff without even asking. They just seemed to be so cool that they didn’t have to ask anyone, everyone was just asking them as they wanted their…

Create more, consume less.

In our today’s society, instead of being creative, we tend to consume a lot because there are lots of possibilities for consumption: TV, radio, internet,.. The last couple of months, I myself have been consuming way too much to be honest. Videos, articles, podcasts,.. Okay, to be fair – I guess I needed this during that time, to get inspiration and new ideas. To learn about other ways of living and what others do to grow and fulfill their dreams. Now it’s enough though. I realized that the main reason for consuming wasn’t anymore to learn or get inspired but just…

How veganism changed my life.

Going vegan changed so much more for me than just the way I eat, it literally turned my whole life around. This probably sounds so cliché, I know, but it’s true. So here’s what changed for me: Veganism cured my unhealthy relationship with food Since being a teenager I had struggled with my eating habits and even had an eating disorder, you can read more about this here. Even after overcoming this phase, my relationship with food was never relaxed, I still had lots of disordered thoughts in my mind, was often restricting myself, then again eating way too much, having crazy cravings…

Face your fears to grow.

“Thinking will not overcome fear but action will.” – W. Clement Stone I personally experienced that this is so true. I have always been one of those persons being afraid of a lot of things: Failure, rejection, extreme sports, spiders,.. I guess it’s also because I’m one of those people that are always overthinking everything. I’m actually really proud of myself though. I feel that I got so much better at dealing with my fears. Let me share a little story with you: As you can see from my last blog post, I recently had been on a trip to…

Getting off the pill: Changes after four months.

This will just be a really short update, the last one I guess, as not much has changed anymore but I want to do it anyway just for the completeness. The biggest change was that I finally got my period back which I’m really happy about.. and thankfully it wasn’t painful at all. I guess this means my hormone system is not completely damaged. 😉 As I mentioned in my last post, I started taking monk’s pepper to get my hormones back into balance again. Of course I can’t be sure that I got my period back because of this but if you’re struggeling with…

For our planet.

One of the reasons for going vegan besides the animals and our own health are environmental reasons. In my opinion you can’t call yourself an environmentalist if you consume lots of animal products, here’s why: Our population is growing and with it the amount of people that ask for animal products. For our whole planet, livestock farming is a big burden though. It leads to deforestation, climate change, decreasing water resources and water quality, decreasing variety of species and starvation of people. About 70% of the worldwide agricultural area and about 30% of the worldwide waterless area is used for livestock farming and also about 8% of all the…

Getting off the pill: Changes after three months.

Thought I’d make a little update again, also for myself to keep track on what’s going on. 🙂 Like I said in my last post I got a lot more pimples. I still get them but it already got a little better and I guess it’s because of two products I reintroduced into my skincare again. I will write a separate blogpost about this soon. What I still did not get is my period, just some spotting.. I know many women worry about this when getting off the pill and so do I. It really shows you how messed up your hormones are.…

Live in the moment, live for today.

“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” – Lao Tzu I’m one of those people that really struggle with living in the moment. I think too much about the past and worry too much about the future which often keeps me up at night though all I can do anyway is living today, now, in this moment. Although I really do still struggle with this, I already got better at being present in this exact moment, I try to practice this all the time. There are strategies that help me with it. First of all it helps me to realize that it’s…

Getting off the pill: Changes after two months.

I just want to give you an update on my experiences with getting off the pill. It’s been two months now and not too much has changed anymore except for two things: Pimples. It’s too bad but I really seem to get more of them now that I don’t take the pill anymore. I really hoped to be spared from them. It’s still not as bad but I get more of them like I used to and also in places where I never had them like my back and cleavage. And I have the feeling that it will get worse.. fortunately…
