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

And how can it bring … Continue reading Headspace – How to Turn Your Brain into a Cotton Ball

Quote Series: Guilty of Guilt

The few words she dedicated to … Continue reading Quote Series: Guilty of Guilt

Perfection

Let’s put one thing straight first: Perfection does not exist. So, stop chasing it! We’re wasting so much time and energy on trying to be perfect – in terms of our appearance, our actions, who we talk to, what we like on social media, who we befriend, our priorities in life really. And why all … Continue reading Perfection

Be Your Own Best Friend

When listening to the latest #girlbossradio podcast with Sophia Amoruso this morning (you can find it here), while enjoying my morning jog – there was one thing in particular that caught my attention: At some point they started to discuss the topic of self-love and self-respect, and they talked about why you need to become … Continue reading Be Your Own Best Friend

Appreciate your flaws

When we look at ourselves in the mirror we hardly ever see perfection – we see ourselves with all the beautiful assets but also all our flaws. And that’s the same for everybody. Because nobody is perfect! A flaw is “a mark, blemish, or other imperfection which mars a substance or object” according to the … Continue reading Appreciate your flaws
