What we can learn from men!

Bashing men and making them alone responsible for the position of women in our daily lives isn’t a very helpful course to follow. I am always sorry to hear men say that they are all against sexism, but they just can’t identify with the term “feminism” as it is too anti-men, anti-equality. That’s not what we should achieve! Why are…

You cannot choose when to be a feminist

Ed Westwick, my Chuck Bass crush, is accused of rape. By two women at the moment when I am writing this article. And this is precisely the point when I realized how difficult feminism can be. As long as it was someone older, less handsome, in a “power position”, it was certainly very easy to say “Well, why would she…

It can be about something as big as our life-choices and something as small as whether or not to post a picture on instagram. “Is this really the right study field for me? Do I look cute enough on this picture?” I personally think that doubt is harder on us women. Sure, I…

Empower yourself – remember these 3 things!

Women are often exposed to judgement – by our peers, people near to us and ourselves.

But is that really necessary? No, definitely not. Judgment, in form…

Ways to meditate 1 – Guided meditation

Guided Meditation for me was the logical point to start this journey. The notion of just closing your eyes and switching off your thoughts may seem difficult to you at first – as it seemed to me. While everyone is so thrilled by the idea of “meditating”, I always wondered how they do that – concentrate on themselves, don’t letting…

Ways to meditate – the series

Meditation is maybe the most traditional way to relax, free the mind, and calm down after a stressful period. While it is generally thought of originating in India and the buddhist religion, meditation has long found its way into the western culture and our hearts.

That one advice that gets you started

As I’ve already mentioned, starting this blog was kind of a, personal, challenge for me. I can imagine that there are many things that you always wanted to do, but never dared to because you didn’t feel ready. Quite frankly I think that the notion of being “ready” is one of our greatest problems in modern day society. Why can…
