Sugar Issues

We all love sweet things. We’re primed to crave them because it’s a fast and easy resource for sugar and therefore a quick energy shot. And at the same time, more and more people try to cut out sugar from their diet completely – because it’s supposed to be the devil. So, are we instinctively … Continue reading Sugar Issues

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

Decluttering Your Space and Mind

I love decluttering. By decluttering I mean tidying up, sorting out my things, getting rid of some unnecessary stuff and ultimately clean what’s left and gets some fresh air in. It’s just so relieving and satisfying! Today, there are countless studies and opinions stating that the mess you surround yourself with is effectively a reflection … Continue reading Decluttering Your Space and Mind

How to Be More Motivated and Kick Ass

You know what’s great? Waking up in the morning and being totally ready for the day. You know what’s great too? Waking up in the morning, not being ready for the day but changing the game and getting ready for it. And “feeling ready” is the kind of motivation we need to achieve great things, … Continue reading How to Be More Motivated and Kick Ass

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

Nutrition Basics: Fats

During the last two nutrition posts, I’ve already covered two of the three major food groups: Protein and carbohydrates. So, the one left now is – fats. I feel like we’re having such a love-hate relationship with this topic today – and everybody is arguing about the right way of eating (or not eating) fats. … Continue reading Nutrition Basics: Fats

How to Overcome the Morning Blues

It’s nearly 9 o’clock in the morning and today, I don’t feel particularly energised. Experiencing some morning blues, if you want. You know this state of mind when you simply don’t feel like doing anything at all that day really? Yup, that’s me now. But I have exams around the corner and better get going … Continue reading How to Overcome the Morning Blues

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

Nutrition Basics: Carbohydrates

My last post about nutrition was all about protein – talking about all the key principles of structure, function and where to find it. Today, I would like to go a little deeper into the second food group I have mentioned: Carbohydrates. While they’re being all bullied and talked about badly by all sorts of … Continue reading Nutrition Basics: Carbohydrates

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
