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

How to Strengthen Your Body For Life

We have all heard it a thousand times (at least) before: Working out, exercising, doing sports – whatever you want to call it – is good for you. And you know what? It’s simply the truth.

How to Get Back on Your Feet

Headspace – How to Turn Your Brain into a Cotton Ball

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

Failure

We are all far too afraid to fail. We are very hesitant to brave the world and give exciting but challenging ideas a shot – that is because we’re afraid what might happen if we failed. But saying that out loud (figuratively speaking), it becomes obvious how restricting this way of thinking is: If we … Continue reading Failure

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
