Friday Feeling – Confidence

”Doubt”   Happy Friday! Today’s Friday feeling is confidence. I believe there’re plenty of us that would gain a lot from being more confident in our daily lives; regarding decision making, when facing challenging situations, or simply how we perceive ourselves, as well as talk about ourselves. Do you consider yourself self-confident? Last Friday I wrote a blog post about self-care. You can read it here. I strongly believe confidence starts with self-care. Self-love plays an important part when wanting to grow confidence. The more self-aware you are, hence the more you know yourself – your strengths and weaknesses – the more you start believing in yourself and all that you’re capable of. As with a lot of things gaining confidence won’t happen over-night. For some it might require a great deal of practise, as well as incorporating daily habits, in order to obtain a feeling of a deeply rooted trust within oneself.   Ways to boost your self-confidence   ”There is no competition. Because nobody can be you.”   Take care of yourself. Don’t forget to groom …

10 Wellness Resolutions for 2018

”Mindset is everything”   Make yourself a delicious cup of tea. Grab your note book and favourite pen, and take some well needed ‘me-time’. What would you like to accomplish within a month? Within three months? One year? How would you like to feel? Put your visions, plans and goals on paper, and start taking action. Having a clear structure makes all of it a little easier to handle. Take that first step. And take it today.   If you’re making mistakes it means you’re trying. Allow yourself to make mistakes. It’s not the end of the world although it doesn’t turn out the way you expected it to. It means you’re trying, doing something new. Challenging yourself. Be curious and have the courage to say yes to things, even though you’ve no idea how they will turn out. Be curious. -> Every day is a fresh start.  If you made a mistake, know that tomorrow is a new day, a new day to start fresh. Tomorrow is a blank page, and you’re the writer …

Eat for the planet

‘Early morning sunrise. I opened up my eyes and it got me thinking of you.’   – Linda   Dear sunrise, I heart you. I heart you like I heart the beauty of nature. The sound of the ocean, the whispers in the wind, the calmness of the forest. The sky so endless it makes me believe in everything. I believe the sun will set late evening, I believe it will rise early dawn. How can there not be magic with a nature so magical?  The main reasons why I strive to follow a plant-based diet; I’m doing something good for the environment – It might seem as baby steps, but when choosing to eat more greens I choose to believe in a greener planet. I might not be the most environmentally friendly person, however I strive to do my best. If all of us would choose to do something good for the environment it could end up as something powerful. ‘Eat less of conventionally raised poultry, pork, beef, or dairy products: Concentrated animal feeding …

99 things for health

”Take care of your mind and body. It’s the only place you have to live.”   You can’t have too many lists. Here’s my list of 99 things for health. Health is not only about looking a certain way – health is about feeling alive, having a positive attitude towards life and being confident in your own skin, as well as being both mentally & physically strong. Health is your greatest wealth.  The importance of sleep. Aim for 6-8 hours sleep/night (And put away the phone 1 hour before bedtime). Staying active throughout the day. While it’s important to exercise regularly it’s as important to be active in your everyday life. Take the stairs. Always take the stairs. If you haven’t broken your foot, then take the elevator. Educate yourself. Try to learn something new everyday. Prioritise the greens, the veggies, the colourful stuff (I did not mean candy when I wrote that). Smile to strangers. They might think you’re crazy, but hey! Then smile even bigger. Drink plenty of water. Water is life. Water is fundamental to …
