Was ist Coaching?// What is Life Coaching? (English Version Below)

Coaching ist im Vergleich zur traditionellen Psychologie viel jünger und neuer. Die Ursprünge vom Coaching können auf die 1940er Jahre zurückgeführt werden, aber erst in den 1980ern hat sich Coaching als eigenes Feld etabliert und in den letzten Jahren gewinnt es immer mehr an Interesse. Coaching ist nicht Psychotherapie und Psychotherapie ist nicht Coaching. In diesem Post erkläre ich was Coaching ist, wer von einem Coaching Programm profitieren kann, die Unterschiede zwischen Coaching und Psychotherapie und meinen Ansatz.

Teaching Your Mind to Function Positively: The Power of Affirmations and Self- Affirmation Practices

sarah_marcos_208

It’s that time of the year again: the beginning of January, the beginning of a new year. For many people this means new goals and resolutions. The problem with that so often though is a lack of proper reflection, looking within, checking what truly is good for the self, setting the mind to working towards that and doing so on a daily basis. Our mind should not only be set to achieving our goals and resolutions for a few days at the end of the year and at the beginning of the year, but on a daily basis and in a positive way. A mind, which is set to function positively, will help us not only in working towards our goals but also in working towards a higher well- being. Daily affirmations and self- affirmation practices are great and simple ways to teach our mind to function positively. This post will explain what affirmations and self- affirmation practices are, how they work, and how you can create your own affirmations.

A body can be the home of another human being for 9 months or so, giving shelter, caring for it, nurturing it and helping it to develop and grow and at the same time function to care for the self. I call myself very lucky to able to experience this miracle and would like to share how the pregnancy has taught me to love, trust and appreciate my body to an extent I have never experienced before.

Pregnancy: The Power of Positive Thinking on a Positive Pregnancy Experience

sarah_marcos_9

My pregnancy journey so far has been the most beautiful and positively exciting time in my life. I am so thankful to be able to experience this amazing journey together with my husband. Very interesting to me was that not only my body started to change already within the first few weeks of pregnancy, but my mind as well. I care so much for that little life inside of me and at the same time our little baby has already given and taught me so much within these 6 months of pregnancy. In this post I will share with you some of my beliefs and approaches towards pregnancy and ‘mind developments’ I have made that I strongly believe can be helpful for any pregnant women.

img_2302-2

Being pregnant for me has been the most beautiful experience so far. It is however also accompanied by some challenges, both physically as well as mentally. Within my first 5 months of my pregnancy I have learned different ways of dealing with some of these challenges, which I will be sharing on Being Me by Sarah. I’ll be uploading two short videos a week with different exercises, which help dealing with different physical pregnancy issues. I’ll also be sharing some posts on the blog. The videos are all pregnancy friendly, sometimes specifically targeting pregnancy issues, but most of them are helpful also for those of you who are not pregnant (men and women).

Mindful Eating- a Short Introduction

IMG_3907
Both mindfulness as well as eating are two widely discussed topics. We can find all kind of information and tips for what and when we should eat and what and when we should not eat. The topic of mindfulness starts to get to be known more and more, which is great, because it really has the power to heighten our well- being by taking us into the present moment without judgment. Eating, being such a widely discussed topic is helpful in some way, but in others it just drives us crazy. Bringing mindfulness and eating together allows us to understand who we are when we eat and that is, as research suggests, extremely important. I have discussed the role of our mind in eating in my last post, which you can find here. In that post I listed mindful eating as one way of getting in touch with our mind. I will now explain what mindful eating is and how it can be introduced into our lives.

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.
