Freier und Glücklicher Leben: So Kannst du ‘Limiting Beliefs’ Erkennen und Loslassen

Mova_PhotoShooting_123

-Live a More Free and Happy Life: How to Recognize and Release Limiting Beliefs. // Find the English version below-

Unser Wohlbefinden, unsere Entscheidungen, unser Tun und unser nicht- Tun sind stark von unserem mind set, unserer Geisteshaltung beeinflusst. Unsere Geisteshaltung wiederum ist von unseren Erfahrungen, Erlebnissen und dem was wir regelmäßig hören und sehen beeinflusst. Dies geschieht sowohl bewusst als auch unterbewusst. Als Resultat dessen entwickeln wir Glaubenssätze die uns in unserem Leben begleiten. Manche dieser Glaubenssätze sind sehr hilfreich; andere aber führen zu Einschränkungen und Unwohlsein. Diese werden ‚limiting beliefs’genannt: Glaubenssätze, die uns einschränken ohne von Nutzen zu sein. Durch verschiedene Techniken können wir diese Glaubenssätze erkennen und verändern und somit ein freieres und glücklicheres Leben führen und unsere Ziele erreichen.

My Journey towards Becoming a Certified Relaxation Coach Part 2: Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR)

Sarah_Marcos_82

As part of my Relaxation Coach certification I did a training in Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR), a relaxation technique, which is especially suitable for people who find it difficult to relax or for those who easily fall asleep during relaxation exercises. This might sound contradictory at first, but I will explain further down why it isn’t. This weekend has yet again deepened my knowledge and understanding of stress and I learned another relaxation technique allowing me to offer a wide array of different techniques. I find it very important, because we are all different and different techniques work for different people.

My Journey Towards Becoming a Certified Relaxation Coach Part 1: Autogenic Training

AutogenesTraining

Last weekend I began my training to be certified as a Relaxation Coach (Entspannungscoach). The training consists of three weekends covering different topics and techniques helping people to de-stress and relax. Besides learning new things and deepening my knowledge in topics I believe to be very important and helpful I am very excited that the certification allows me to offer my clients courses here in Germany, which will be partially covered by the insurance. Last weekend I completed my certification in autogenic training, a highly effective relaxation method, which can be learned and applied by anyone. In this post I am sharing my experience from this weekend and knowledge of autogenic training.

Allow Your Body to Speak to You

FullSizeRender
Our thoughts rule our life. This is true for most of us, most of the time. We are guided by what we think we should or should not do and rarely allow our bodies and how we truly feel to guide us. This can lead to higher stress levels, lower levels of contentment and a feeling of imbalance. Working on allowing your body to speak to you can be done with simple techniques and will have a huge positive impact on your sense of self and overall well- being.

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.

How to Keep Calm When Your Baby Is Crying

FullSizeRender (1)
Nailah is now eight weeks old and within these eight weeks we have gone through days of almost no crying at all to days with a lot of crying. We are learning to differentiate between the different cries, trying to understand what Nailah needs when she cries. Hearing Nailah cry can be challenging and sometimes I wish she could speak in a language we understand and tell us what is wrong so that we can give her what she needs. This is obviously not an option and that is why we as parents need to learn to deal with our baby crying. In the past weeks I have been working on learning ways to keep calm also in moments where Nailah cries for longer periods of time or in public spaces.

Healthy Food Healthy Body

sarah_marcos_day_2_524
Food is energy and fuel for our body and so much more than that. Many people see food in numbers, counting calories, paying attention mostly to how much food and calories they consume in order to not gain weight or lose weight. Others do not pay attention to what they eat at all, just feeding themselves with what is in front of them or seems like the tastiest or easiest in that very moment. If we do that we forget to pay attention to what we are eating in terms of nutrients and deprive ourselves of an important quality of food: nourishment. In this post I will explore why we should not only look at how many calories we consume, but at what we eat and why this is so important on a physical level for our health in the here and now and later in life.

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.
