Friends are everywhere

I came across this video that I really like Estrangement is a strange thing…(pun intended) There is such a distance between two strangers in a street, not in space but in meeting. If something would trigger the need to connect, interesting things can happen. Physical contact creates emotional response; check it out.

Make appointments with yourself

This is something I learned the hard way; after years of having my calendar solidly booked, day in and day out in a most merciless way, I crashed. I didn’t notice it coming, one day it was just there; a complete and utter emptiness in myself. Between running a company, caring for 4 children andContinue reading “Make appointments with yourself”

GERANIUM for balance

Geranium, Rose geranium Pelargonium graveolens (P. x asperum, P. odoratissimum,P. roseum). There are many hundreds of different geraniums, but I shall concentrate on P. graveolens since this is the one most known and used in aromatherapy. It originates in South Africa, but is now cultivated in Russia, China, Egypt, Morocco and Europe. Geranium Bourbon isContinue reading “GERANIUM for balance”

Healing scents of nature

I found this article in “The Atlantic Cities” The Smell of Nature Is Almost As Good As the Real Thing, As Far As Our Brains Are Concerned Bonnie Tsui Mar 07, 2013 Shutterstock Researchers have been racking up evidence that when you can’t take a break and get into nature itself, looking at photos ofContinue reading “Healing scents of nature”

Stress management in 6 minutes

I was asked to do a short presentation on the topic of stress-management…In 6 minutes! I had a good laugh at this, thinking they were joking, they weren’t. As I have always had a weak spot for challenges, I of course agreed. Then I got nervous. The whole area of stress is huge and IContinue reading “Stress management in 6 minutes”

…and then came Body

Let’s stick with Body for a while; the joy of body in well-being is severely underrated. It’s always about exercise, food, stay fit, don’t get too fat or too thin… I think a lot of people find this intensely stressful and have problems incorporating a healthy (and happy) body-view in their lives because it’s boring.Continue reading “…and then came Body”

I can see your lazy self hiding behind the stress

Life is a journey, we’re all agreed on that. But every journey has bumps, illness, disasters and what-have-you. If we plan our journey we will manage it better and end up with lots of new impressions, we grow. So if you travel to the jungle you dress accordingly and get whatever inoculations you feel youContinue reading “I can see your lazy self hiding behind the stress”

MIND-SET

We might think that we can’t control ourselves or our feelings when things get overwhelming, but we can – and we do. Look at all the children in the world that suffer through the most horrendous stuff; how do they survive? They go to another place in their heads; a place where everything is beautifulContinue reading “MIND-SET”

A NEW HEALTHY LIFE-STYLE – EXERCISE

Our bodies are designed to move…a lot. Everything in the body is in constant movement, inside we are like a beautifully designed machine where everything fits together. But the machine needs to work (move) to function. When we move circulation is enhanced; oxygen in, toxins out. There is no other way to do this. WhenContinue reading “A NEW HEALTHY LIFE-STYLE – EXERCISE”

A NEW HEALTHY LIFESTYLE – NUTRITION

Just because we have a certain age in years, doesn’t necessary mean that we have the same age physically. Some people can carry 10-20 years more in their bodies than their actual age. It depends on a lot of factors; nutrition, habits, sleep, stress-levels, exercise and thought-patterns. I think this is not understood by mostContinue reading “A NEW HEALTHY LIFESTYLE – NUTRITION”
