If you listen to your body when it whispers, you won’t have to hear it scream

‘Do something today that your future self will thank you for.’ ___________________________________________________ Two of my biggest passions in life are health & nutrition.

We can either become addicted to certain foods, we might use food as a stimuli; for example we might turn to food when we’re bored, when we’re sad, when we’re stressed OR food can have a positive impact on our health and thereby help to prevent many chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, cancer, obesity, cardiovascular disease, depression, to mention a few.  Eating healthy is a form of self-respect Awareness is key when it comes to a healthy mindset and a healthy body.

Dear July…

… you came too early, as per usual. ”i’m going to make everything around me ravishing – that is the purpose.” Linda I didn’t even have the time to say goodbye to June, since I thought you would come tomorrow. You know how much I cherish June. June is my favourite. Although that doesn’t mean I don’t like you. I do. It’s just that I prefer June. But anyways July! I think we will get along pretty well. Just promise me one thing. Be warmer than June. Ok? I know you want to.  July is for making progress. For believing in miracles. The warm days feeding us with energy. July is for ice cream. For family get-togethers and mosquito bites. July is for meeting childhood friends who will always be friends although you meet far too seldom. July is for sunscreen and cold sea. For late night runs. For thunderstorm and heavy rains. July is for festivity and reading books. July is for being me. ”Be careful who you make memories with. Those things can …
