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.

Keeping Up a Balanced Self-Care Practice As a Mommy

Sarah_Marcos_357Self- care is key to well-being, but it is not always easy to keep up with a regular self- care practice. For many it is difficult to develop one at all. Being a mom means putting ones own needs aside and fully being there for the baby. Balancing taking care of one self with taking care of the baby can be very challenging, yet very important. In this post I talk about why the practice of self- care as a mom is so important and how we as moms can balance fully being there for our baby with being there for our self. I call it self-care practice because it is a continuous process of learning. At times it works better and others less, always requiring us to reflect, learn, and adapt to any given moment.

A Young Man’s Thoughts

leon1
Sometimes I wake up from lucid dreaming, feeling stressed and thoughtful. I feel trapped between the old me, which always rejected authority and a desire and a need to become a part of it.

Being young I felt opposed to structure, growing older I realized you need to master structures – to be able to create your own. The path towards finding your own way often starts with confusion and worries. I have learned to convert worries into constructive thoughts and triggers for growth. Once I realized I care about the future, I started making the most of the present.

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.

sarah_marcos_117

Pregnancy amazes me so much. 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.

We Aren’t Just What is Visible at First Sight – Understand Yourself (and Others) Better by Looking Deeper

sarah_marcos_81

It happens so easily that we simply see our emotions, thinking, feelings, and actions of the very moment, forming an opinion or judgment as a result of that. It also happens very easily to do the same with others. What we forget however is that we are not that transparent. Us humans are sensitive, deep beings and not as simple as many of us treat ourselves. It is so important to become aware of that. If we don’t, we will misunderstand ourselves (and others), treat ourselves unfair and judge too quickly.

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.

The Beginning of a New Journey: Trauma- Sensitive Yoga Certification

p1050753

After two and a half weeks in the US I am back in Germany for a few days before we will fly back to Tel Aviv, after three months abroad. My trip to the US has been inspiring on so many levels. I got to spend time in big cities and in the nature. The most important part and reason for the trip though was Boston, where I started the certification program to become an instructor for trauma sensitive yoga. Last week marked the beginning of the seven-month program, which left me feeling so excited for all the learning to come.

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.
