Embarking Onto the The Road to Self- Empowerment: Shed Light on Who You Are

E-session_Sarah574

Are you aware of what makes you feel good? If so do you consider that in your daily choices? Getting caught up in daily living is easy and can lead us to living day by day without reflecting, without checking in with ourselves to see whether we are happy and healthy. A more fulfilling way of living is to take your life into your own hands, to chose how you want to live day by day- to empower yourself to live life in line with who you are towards contentment and health.

Choose Your Own Adventure In Life

Life. Why are we here, and what is our purpose?

People have tried to answer this complex question for all of human history, but I don’t know if any of us can ever do this. Is it even possible for there to be just one answer that works for everyone, or is there even a need to answer it at all. All I know is that we’re all here in this universe for a short period of time, and that life should be lived to the fullest. Each of us should be free to follow our own paths, pursue our own passions, and determine for ourselves what is of value.

Switching from Symptom to the Source: Mind Over Diet

IMG_8972 copy

So many people constantly struggle with their weight, the way their body looks like, and their eating behaviour. They then try to work on their diet, but often do not even do a check- in with their mind. What I have learned with the help of my psychology studies, my certification as a nutritional coach and through life and my own experiences is that our eating behaviour most of the time is an expression of what is going on in our mind, rather than the source of a problem. So we should choose working on our mind over working on our diet. What exactly I mean with that and how it can be done I will explain further on.

Being Present: Why the Here & Now is so Meaningful

IMG_9018

In the past days Marcos and me have given two different classes covering the topic of mindfulness, one workshop at Adidas Runbase in Berlin and one Extended Masterclass at Damn Good Yoga in Hamburg. I deeply believe in the concept of mindfulness, because I myself know how living mindfully positively influences one’s well- being. Mindfulness is so powerful because it allows us to connect to our self and takes us to the present moment. In this post I will explore the meaning of being in the here and now and why it is so important.

Clean Body – Clear Mind

Sarah_9two5_116
Today is number two of three days of juicing for me. Doing a detox helps us release toxins and reboot on many levels. When speaking about detox many mention the physical benefits, such as improved digestion, improved energy, healthy skin, a stronger immune system, and better blood circulation. While a detox definitely holds the potential of such benefits I find it just as important to mention the mental benefits. We do not only accumulate toxins in our bodies, but in our minds as well and just as important as the health of our body, is the well- being of our mind.

When you arise in the morningthink of what a precious privilege it is to be alive -to breatheto thinkto enjoyto love.”– Marcus Aurelius

The morning is a very special time of the day. It is an opportunity for a fresh new start, an opportunity to live another day, structure it the way you want, and make choices that allow you to feel good with your self. The way we start our day strongly influences the rest of our day. Allow the beginning of your day to inspire you for the hours ahead. In this post I will introduce you to such a morning routine. It does not take long to follow the routine and is suitable for everyone even if you don’t want to commit to getting up much earlier than you usually do.

Self-Knowledge for True Contentment

Mova_PhotoShooting_120

When was the last time you spent time on getting to know yourself? Sitting down without distractions observing yourself, your emotions, your behavior, and your way of living?

We deserve to live content and fulfilling lives, in order to do so we must understand our own responsibility for that and invest time and effort. Many of us are so into complaining and doing that we forgot to observe and be. If we want to be happier and improve our life it is crucial to first gather enough knowledge about our self to be able to do so. We cannot change something in the proper way if we have no knowledge about it.

The Importance of Adaptability in Living a Fulfilling Life

Mova_PhotoShooting_379

‘It is not the strongest of the species, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable.’- Charles Darwin

Two of the things we can be sure about in life are changes and surprises. In psychological coaching we talk a lot about the helpful role of goal setting with determination and flexibility for a happy life, preparing where we want to head and how we can get there. Goal setting and planning are very important. However, there is another key ingredient, which is highly important to a successful and happy life: adaptability. Setting your goals and working consistently are only two ingredients of the feeling fulfilled formula. If we get stuck on our goal and work towards achieving it without looking to the right and left we won’t be able to achieve our goal as wanted. We have to work towards adapting and adjusting to life’s changes.

One of the Healthiest Things You Can Do For Yourself Today: Rest.

E-session_Sarah_419Burn-out and fatigue are some of the top diseases in the western world we live in today. These diseases are caused to the degree many experience them, by ignoring the importance of rest, physically and mentally. The topic of rest came up within the first days of our anatomy and the fascial body workshop we just did with Gary Carter here in Goa. Gary pointed out the importance of rest for our body for maintaining overall health and also for improving. It seems like a simple topic, but it made me think:
