Self – Discipline and Self – Care

When one has a lot on his mind, university- or jobwise, it can be easy to forget one’s most important asset – oneself. At the moment I am working hard to finish my studies in the next 3 months. I get through my days, trying to balance studies, organizational things, work, fitness, health and household. That’s not as easy as…

3 ideas to get you through January

I get it. January can be great. It’s the month of new beginnings, of resolutions taking shape and being converted into reality. For me, however, it’s also the month when I most likely get my little winter depression. While I normally consider myself to be a quite optimistic person, the third or fourth day in line, with the sun not…

Why are you so afraid of nipples?

I think there hardly is a body part that is just as much feared as the nipple. The female nipple, anyways. Whether it’s a nipple slip, whether you see it hardened under a girls shirt, whether a part of it is visible through a thin fabric, you can be sure to attract a lot of (unwanted) attention. Sometimes you might…

Things to refrain from 3 – False Friends Instagramposts 

I love Instagram. In my opinion, it is a great way to stay in contact with friends. While Facebook is flooded with advertisement at the moment, and I mostly read company’s ideas instead of seeing the posts of my friends, I more often than not prefer scrolling through Instagram than staying on Facebook. That both are activities on which you…

However, that is absolutely no reason to stay inside and cuddled up all day, how ever much you’d like to do that! Winter months are as good for…

The necessity of reading

Knowledge does not come out of nowhere. The right knowledge doesn’t anyways. Obviously, humans cannot help but learn. If I miss my train, because I have left my apartment too late, I have learned to leave earlier next time, if I hear about a new town, I have learned a new geographical fact. But when we follow certain values as…

Things to refrain from 2 – Fake Friends Body-Positivity

Uh. This is truly a difficult topic. But really, body-positivity is not what it should be anymore. It is such a nice and perfect term, it could stand for a wonderful revolution of body images for women (and men). Yet, it might have moved into the right direction for a while, but unfortunately it has started down the completely wrong…

3 power quotes to control the day (or year)

2018 has arrived and with it, most probable, at least one or two great resolutions. For me, as I only have one resolution to stick to (the only resolution you need, duh!) , I am very determined to stay true to it, yet it involves a lot of things. I still want to develop, improve, form what and who I…

The only resolution you need for 2018

Stay true to yourself. Yep. That’s it already. Okay, I agree, it doesn’t look as fancy as a whole list of new projects and plans does, but it is a) much easier to follow and b) a great help in all the projects and plans you have. Oh, did I say easy to follow? Well, you know that it can…
