The Power of Habit – 10 Habits I Have Learnt

Recently a thought came to my mind – namely,  how many benefits my work on myself brings me in everyday life. How much I’ve learned, how much I took to heart. How many things in my life have changed. How many negatives I got rid of. Why do I so rarely turn my attention to it? I focus on what is here and now, I often forget how far I’ve come, since I set my mind on health. And today is the day I share this with you. I will tell you about how much the power of habit has impacted my life and also, what it took.

5 Natural Beauty Alternatives To Swap For Today!

I have always been intrigued by how many cosmetic products women (and modern men) use on an everyday basis. It gave me some food for thought, because as much as we enjoy using them, it doesn’t always feel right to pack your skin with chemicals that don’t naturally occur in our bodies. For this reason I have been trying to incorporate products with more natural ingredients into my everyday routine and here are a few with which you can start your natural beauty journey today!

Niomi Smart – Eat Smart Review

For this day I have been waiting months. It almost felt like it was one of my friends (and not one of my role models) has published a book. What kind of book you may ask? A book that has the potential to transform lives through changing eating habits, inspiring to live a healthier, more active life, and giving a perspective on living differently. A vegan cookbook.

About the author:

I found Niomi through the YouTube platform about three years ago, but it was only in the last two years that I took real interest and became a true follower. There is something different about Niomi. To me, Niomi became my role model not only because of her great and light-hearted personality, but also her values and strength she portrays. Positivity and a great attitude to life is what I truly admire in people. There is something comforting about her videos, something true that I can’t necessarily point my finger on. It’s the feeling of being home (as cheesy as it sounds). It’s the comfort of not being judged by your life choices (e.g. the way we eat) but instead being slowly guided towards a life that is fulfilling and true to yourself.

Coming back to training…? How to re-catch the endorphin bug!

Well, what are the returns like? Difficult? Nice? Motivating? It depends on the type of the fitness break, what was it caused by and how long it lasted. Well, all in all it also has an impact on our training system practised before the break… But the most important thing is how we approach the whole thing!

How did it look like for me?

Once upon a time I was a self-proclaimed ‘gym-goer’, in the full sense of the word. I could not imagine my weekly routines without training. I will mark it clearly – no, I’m not crazy about changing my figure, the number of calories and excess fat on my body. I just – I loved practicing! I loved ‘the feeling after’ training, when endorphins stoke blood like crazy! That’s why I could practice every other day, even several times a day if I had the strength! Overtime, I nicely improved my fitness level.

Why coconut oil, is a pure coconut miracle!

I must share with you my admiration for this product, I just do. Because, the fact that coconut oil is a miracle, is not subject to any doubt. If you are wondering about whether to implement a miracle in your life, I am sure that after reading this post, you will not even think twice about it.

Coconut oil has been visiting my house for a long time – I used it much earlier, before the outbreak of the fashion for “superfood.” But – I did not use it for culinary purposes, but only for cosmetic purposes. Yes, coconut oil is associated with the culinary part, and we forget how precious and sensational it can be as a cosmetic! I will write far too much about this too, so do not worry. 😉

What Having Anxiety Feels Like

From the outside it’s easy to think that somebody has got it all figured out. Because my hair is curled and my cheeks are intentionally flushed – I must not have a care in the world. As if it were expected from my demons to be worn like a scarlet letter pinned to my chest – and they assume if you cannot see it, then it’s not really there. As if pain does not exist unless you’re bleeding or slung in a cast or staggering with a limp. But sometimes, the most painful demons are the ones they can’t even see.

So we learn how to smile, how to grin, and bear it. Because, nobody likes to talk about the tough stuff… Hell, I don’t like to talk about the tough stuff.

I have anxiety.

My running beginnings

First of all, let’s agree no one is born Usain Bolt! Anyone who begins the adventure of running, needs to suffer at the beginning. I am writing ‘everyone’ because yes, anyone can run, even if you don’t believe it right now.

A year ago I was only running when a train was almost leaving the platform from in front of my nose. I was never crazy about this form of activity and I always associated it with shortness of breath and a blur before my eyes. I never imagined that I would ever be able to defeat even a half-hour run. However I succeeded, even better than I thought…

I returned to run for good last month when I caught the bug to exercise. This happened after about three months of very irregular, casual training. With the intention of checking my running capabilities, I hesitated for a few weeks, but was always afraid that I just won’t be able to make it. Eventually my curiosity and determination prevailed and I so proudly ventured on my first run.
