How to Succeed Without Really Trying

I used to think that you have to be pretty, slim, witty and smart to succeed in life: find the partner of your dreams, a job you really love and genuine happiness. Of course, a great education and good looks don’t hurt. But do know what I feel makes the biggest difference between people who are genuinely happy and successful and those who are not? Their VIBE! That certain something which no one can explain but which is so incredibly attractive. Fifteen years ago I wasn’t even sure whether I theoretically had what it takes to build a life...

Get Your Chia Energy Boost!

It is difficult to focus on anything when you are struggling each and every day just to get out of bed and get through your normal routine. And with so little energy to spare, who has got time for everything we have on our busy schedules? A client of mine had been struggling with evening cravings and fatigue for a very long time. During the day she indulged a little too freely in junk food but she also followed a pretty good work-out routine; but as soon as she’d hit the couch at night, she’d be overwhelmed by an...

The Balance Journey – Part III

In the first two parts of my Balance Journey Series I have covered how meditation and self-love helped me find my center, health and happiness. Of course I would love to tell you that once I had adapted these strategies, the rest of my way to the finish line was a piece of cake. But it wasn’t. Turning my life around, breaking with old behavior patterns and renewing my belief system was the hardest thing I have ever done and more than once I just wanted to stop trying and give up. For example, I once had a therapist...

The Balance Journey Part II

In Part I of The Balance Journey Series I told you how meditation helped me find my peace of mind and how leaving my ex-fiancé was one of the best decisions I ever made. Not only did he love the idea of the wife I could be more than the girl I actually was, he also nourished my co-dependency, which I knew I had to put an end to if I wanted to be happy and healthy again. After years of relationships with rather troubled people who were completely absorbed in their world of personal (childhood) drama, inferiority complexes,...

The Balance Journey or How To Find Genuine Health And Happiness Part I

When I was in my early twenties, I was not only struggling with an eating disorder, I was also seriously depressed, a bacteriophobe and hopelessly co-dependent. I tried to take care of each and everyone’s needs except my own, stumbling from one unhealthy relationship into the next. If at the time someone had explained to me that I could overcome all this by finding my center, I never would have believed them. Balance as the key to health and happiness? Come on! Life is so much more complicated than that! 15 years later, however, I know better. And I...

My Favorite Tips For A Flat Belly That Will Turn Heads

I used to have a love-hate-relationship with my belly. Each morning, I was totally fine with my looks and the fact that I was still fitting into my favorite, 15 year old pair of jeans, but somewhere between one and three in the afternoon, I would start and avoid looking at each and everything that could reflect my silhouette. Why? Because for reasons that were unknown to me at the time, after lunch my flat morning tummy would reliably turn into a huge and bloated belly that easily made every pregnant woman jealous! Really, it was unbelievable and although...

Why I don’t Like Juice Fasting Or How To Detox Common Sense

Water and juice fasts to cleanse your body have become a huge hype recently. You read about them everywhere and one program seems crazier than the other. But I always wonder: Have the people and magazines promoting these fasts really ever tried them? Well, I have. And you know what? I hated it! Because as a family & business manager, wife, dog owner and cargo bike taxi driver (that is how I take my kids to day care), I simply cannot live on water or tea alone, and also juice fasting just wasn’t enough for me to be able...
