Energy levels

As a med student, a former competitive athlete, a woman (hello period) and generally as a human being living in today’s crazy world, I’m very familiar with feeling sluggish and having low energy levels. If you have ever experienced the feeling of running out of battery (which I guess every one of us has at … Continue reading Energy levels

Living (In) The Moment

Have you ever thought or been told that you should live more consciously, be more mindful and ‘just enjoy the moment’? And has anyone ever told you how you could do so? Aha. The same was the case for me – so, I had to learn it by myself (and still learning). And honestly, I … Continue reading Living (In) The Moment

How to Be More ‘You’

Do you know that feeling when you believe to be confident and happy with yourself – but all of a sudden realise that it might have not been bad admittedly, but that it can be even better?

How to Get Back on Your Feet

Sometimes, life can be tough – very tough. Even utterly unfair from time to time. And as a matter of fact, we can hardly ever do anything about it. But at the same time, this applies to everybody. Even the most perfect person, living the most perfect life (as you might think) – experiences those … Continue reading How to Get Back on Your Feet

How Social Media Invades Our Universe

We are glued to our screens. 24/7. All of us. I know hardly anybody (the elderly excluded) who isn’t. Do you think that’s healthy? How can it even be? Over the past few days, I’ve come across quite a few blogposts, articles and quotes about people reviewing their relationship with social media and reality. It’s … Continue reading How Social Media Invades Our Universe

Quote Series: If Nothing Changes

“Nothing changes, if nothing changes“  (by somebody smart) The meaning of this sentence seems obvious – but do you really understand it? I’ve only just come across this one today and honestly, I first thought that was an unnecessary and pseudo-intellectual space filler in my Instagram feed. But for some reason it got stuck in … Continue reading Quote Series: If Nothing Changes

Competition vs. Mutual Support

Working life or studying is tough (both in its own way, depending on the circumstances). But what really annoys me are those fellow students still treating each other like components instead of supporting each other. Why even? And the same goes for all kind of people in all kind of situations where they can choose … Continue reading Competition vs. Mutual Support

From Self-Acceptance to Self-Love

There are so many self-love guides out there that I decided this post will NOT be yet another one. Instead I would like to highlight the transformation from self-acceptance to self-love. Because in my opinion, self-love isn’t a state but a process. And you can’t ask somebody with insecurities to “just love yourself” and "be … Continue reading From Self-Acceptance to Self-Love

Headspace – How to Turn Your Brain into a Cotton Ball

Meditation is not the same as being mindful. Did you know that? I’ve only just realised this lately. But both words have been hyped so much over the past few months, that people have started using them as synonyms – even though the difference is essential! So, what is it? And how can it bring … Continue reading Headspace – How to Turn Your Brain into a Cotton Ball

Quote Series: Guilty of Guilt

“Guilt doesn’t serve anybody“ (Jennifer Rudolph Walsh on #girlbossradio) You know that feeling of being taken aback when you hear somebody say something so simple yet super-smart? This happened to me this morning on my commute into the city while listening to the #girlbossradio podcast with Jennifer Rudolph Walsh.
