Mindful sunday #3

Image
Hello everyone! You might ask yourself what you could do to be more mindful and to come into the present moment specially when your mind constantly seems to wander. My top one tip is to go outside and just enjoy nature to reconnect to your true self and to let go of everything that no longer serves you.  Let us do an exercise together. Sit or even lay down somewhere outside (of course you should choose a place where you can relax and where you are safe!). It does not matter if the ground is sandy, snowy or however the ground looks like. Make yourself comfortable. Let the arms and legs feel heavy. Then close your eyes and relax your face. Feel the ground underneath you. Feel the parts of your body that are connected to the earth. Does the ground feel warm? Or cold? Hard or soft? Breath and be aware of every little detail. Take your time.  Then open your eyes and look to the sky. Surrender to the clouds. Are they moving fast? Or slow? Which shapes do they have? Try to see symbols. Which

Life is like the ocean.

Hello everyone! Today I want to share a beautiful quote with you that gives me strength in this uncertain time and reminds me to have faith no matter what life brings to us: “None of us knows what might happen even the next minute, yet still we go forward. Because we trust. Because we have Faith.” ― Paulo Coelho Always remember: Life is a journey. Life is like the ocean. In constant change. Big waves are crushing, wild storms are blowing but in the end there will always be peace and light, there will be a day when you can see the horizon. We need to be grateful for all challenges, for all struggles in life. They always teach us something even if we do not see the sense of them right now. But we will understand one day. Hope for better days & accept what is right now. May you be guided and protected.💛   © Wind of Happiness

The benefits of meditation - Open new doors in your life.

Hello everyone! Like I mentioned in the post about self-awareness we gonna speak more about meditation and its benefits. First of all you might ask yourself: What is meditation?  " Meditation can be defined as a set of techniques that are intended to encourage a heightened state of awareness and focused attention. Meditation is also a consciousness-changing technique that has been shown to have a wide number of benefits on psychological well-being" (Definition by Verywellmind ). But what are the detailed benefits of meditation and how can it be life changing? 1. Meditation can reduce stress and anxiety.  The more we are aware of our thoughts the more we can change our negative believes. Furthermore taking several small breaks in our daily life helps to wind down and let go of stress. The less stress we feel the less anxious we will be about our future and tasks we need to do. Meditation can be a great tool to declutter the mind and free your mind. You will face obstacles

Food inspiration #January

Image
Hello everyone! Today I want to share my favourite food in this month with you : Homemade fried potato patties!😋 They are super easy to make. You just need a few potatos (circa 1 kg for 2 people) which you need to peel and cut in pieces first. Put them in the blender together with 3 spoons of flour and the spice you like (e.g. salt, pepper, rosemary etc.). Afterwards add fresh onion rings and cheese. Put the formed patties in a heated pan with some vegetable oil and fry them until they are golden baked and a little crispy. At the end you can add some lettuce and radicchio. Voila!  © Wind of Happiness

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a nice sunday. I just wanted to share a small quotation with you as a reminder of being mindful, because we want to start the upcoming week with positivity and gratitude! Let go of all events that made you upset to find space in your heart to invite and give love, specially to the persons around you and to yourself! “In the end, just three things matter: How well we have lived How well we have loved How well we have learned to let go” ― Jack Kornfield © Wind of Happiness

Why forgiveness helps to move on & accomplish your goals. 2 important reasons

Image
Hello everyone! Forgiveness is a big word. It means to let go of old wounds. To let go of  heavy burdens we carry with us - made by others or even by ourselves. When we will not forgive ourselves, people or actions that hurt us we will never move on. The past will always hold us back. 1. In other words: If we want to follow our dreams and accomplish what we wish for, we need to let go of stored negative emotions inside of us that are related to anger and maybe even hate. If we do not let go of the past we are bound to think (sooner or later) about past events or people that betrayed, harmed etc. us and we will feel bad about it. We will relive that moment and we will even attract more negative thoughts maybe even about the future.  That negativity will determine our daily life. Without our permission that memories will remove energy of us and we will not have the strength we wish to have to invite positivity and happiness. We will not be able to love ourselves and others what brings us

Only if you take a break of your daily tasks, you will gain more energy and you will invite physical as well as mental well-being. 1. Take You-Time daily.
