If you read my Blog, you might know that I had to stop writing for a while, simply, because my health was really poorly, first due to my issue with my herniated discs, but also due to constantly occurring allergic reactions and a weak immune system...
Who doesn’t have to cope with setbacks at their workplace? I certainly have. A lot. Tell me, does this sound familiar to you? You really worked your arse off - working long hours into the nights including on weekends...
It is a fact, bad things happen. Did you plan on getting a new job and had a really great interview, but the position just went to someone else? Did you fail a test or an important exam? Or did you just split up with your partner? Bad stuff happens. To all of us.
You might have noticed my lack of posts recently. If you wondered if I’m fed up with blogging already, I can reassure you that this is certainly not the case. The simple reason for my absence lately is the fact that I came down with a massive flu.
Do you know the following scenario? You take a few days off of work in order to finish some tasks or projects of your own. In the evening you are planning your day and go to sleep with a fixed plan in your mind. But once morning arrives you suddenly can’t be arsed to get up so early.
I thought that today I’d share some of my all-time-favourite carry-on travel items with you. You know – those things that you always have to have on you, at all times. Those things that you can’t survive any trip without.
When I was a kid my mum used to shake me out of sleep really early every day. This also routinely happened on the weekends – which you surely can imagine, I hated. Later, when I moved out on my own I began to sleep in much longer and I enjoyed it at first, but at one stage I realized that this habit starts to cut many hours out of your day that could otherwise be used more productively.
Today I would like to talk to you about motivation. I’m sure that all of us – me certainly included – feel unmotivated at times. Especially when it comes to your fitness goals you will eventually hit a rough patch of low level enthusiasm from time to time.
The experienced traveller is very much familiar with the usual problem of workout logistics accompanying almost every single trip. You can solve this of course by taking advantage of your environment in the way I previously described in my post on how to stay fit during travelling.
When I initially started running I didn’t want to buy myself a good pair of running shoes at first, since I only ran (or to be precise – tried to run) for a few minutes straight during my first few attempts.
It is a fact: Travelling is fun. What makes it even more enjoyable is to bring along the right gear in your luggage and some proper gadgets to have fun with. I’m a real gadget girl and I love to search for new knick-knacks all the time.
It is a fact, travelling can be expensive. Especially in Europe (or at least when it comes to certain parts of the continent). There are some hidden costs that you might not be aware of, or some facts you never even heard of.
Be honest: Have you recently purchased some fancy workout clothes or maybe some cutting-edge workout gear? Did you subscribe to an extremely fun sounding fitness class, or perhaps trade in your soul at some really expensive gym?
Berlin. The beautiful and the ugly, the capital comprising two cities, a melting pot of cultures. Berlin is a global city and also one that stands with its doors open to the world, welcoming it and celebrating its diversity.
If you happen to travel a lot you perhaps already found your ideal routine that enables you to stay fit during a trip, all the while juggling social responsibilities, appointments with business clients and the occasional sightseeing tour.
Whether you are completely new to physical exercise or you have already been on and off different regimens for years, let me take you on a short step by step journey on how I found my ideal exercise routine and how you might learn to find yours...
For me, my suitcase is a constant and much loved companion. I really love to travel. But this was not always the case. Even though I enjoyed my trips in the past as well – whether for business or my holiday travels – the change in schedule
Childhood was a truly magical time. Every day was filled with discoveries and ever new adventures. Everything seemed so exciting and so new to the extent that we couldn’t wait to get up in the morning and experience every day anew.
I love reading. Even though I didn't manage to read much during the last month - due to a lot of work and a lot of other excuses I came up with - I always wanted my former bedtime reading routine back.
