How to Stay Healthy in Unhealthy Environments
I recently got an email from a reader and they wanted to confide in me about a problem that is not uncommon- how to stay motivated and carry on your health journey if everyone around you does the opposite? That person told me she enjoyed a healthy, plant-based inspired lifestyle for more than 10 years…Then, because of her work/ business, she was forced to move to a rather depressing part of her country where most people are not at all interested in any holistic transformation. Not to mention any basic self-care. Now, it takes her more than an hour to drive to get some healthy stuff. In the local stores in her area, people actually conform to unhealthy foods because, again, most people don’t care what they eat. To make things worse- she feels laughed at whenever she shows any interest for a healthy lifestyle…In the end, she put on weight, got a bit depressed and asked me for support to get back on track. She asked me for tips and resources on living a healthy life in an unhealthy town…how to break free from bad environments….In her own words: “I can’t even find yoga-it’s that bad. I guess I’ve hit rock bottom and am just looking for support in any way. I appreciate all you do and put out into the world” Continue reading

How to Overcome the Internal Struggle and Kick-Start Your Personal Transformation
I very often get asked why we struggle to do the things that are good for us. This is something I can actually relate to, personally. A few years ago, I felt torn between information and action. In other words, I would get stuck on information. I struggled to take continuous and persistent action. Many people do, and so today I want to show you a few powerful tools that will help you finally leave the comfort zone and stop procrastinating. I want you to realize why you sometimes abstain from making healthy choices (even though you know they are good for you) and, consequently, what to do so you can actually enjoy the process of your transformation. This can be applied to all areas of your life, not only health. The process for all kinds of transformations is always the same, no matter if you want to lose weight, transform your body, inspire those around you, or start a business. If you really want to change something in your life and create your personal success with your own hands, you cannot find an excuse not to read this post.
All You Need to Know to Stay Motivated and Achieve Massive Success
I think mid-February is a great time to look at one’s New Year’s resolutions, their progress and motivation… Whether you want to lose weight, gain weight, get fit, make more money, start a new business, get a new job, socialize more, transform your lifestyle- it’s not about gaining more information. Most people know exactly what to do to achieve their goals. The problem is lack of motivation or not enough motivation. Then, there are also limiting beliefs and negative environments that make it hard to get started . I always say that in order to succeed (= achieve your own goals, not someone else’s goals) you need not only information, but also motivation and inspiration. Plus, sometimes we all need a kick in the ass, right? Let me walk you through the following 3 steps to help you jumpstart your personal and professional success…
Learn How Positive Attitude Can Change Your Life!
Is your glass half-full or half-empty? Did you know that your entire life depends on your answer? Yes! You probably know and realize that negative thinking can harm your life (and your loved ones’). The question is- how to practice positive thinking while remaining REALISTIC and how to learn from negative experiences. It’s not possible to eliminate all negative circumstances from our lives, sometimes things don’t go as planned. However, a positive person will know how to turn difficult moments into assets, use them to develop their emotional muscles and learn how to protect themselves from suffering. Pretty positive attitude, would you agree?
Motivation Tricks: Light Your Internal Fire!
Are your goals, projects and resolutions in progress? Or, are they just forgotten, somewhere, written down on a piece of paper and 100% lost? If you haven’t taken action, don’t worry and don’t beat yourself up. Use it as an asset to motivate yourself NOW, and see good in bad. I mean… do you really want to carry on neglecting your goals and ambitions? Think about simple habits that can change your life. Make it simple and doable for your mind, don’t overthink, don’t overcomplicate. The worst thing that you can do is to feel guilty and beat yourself up. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not judging. I have been guilty of “feeling too guilty” as well. It’s normal. Most people get pissed off and just forget about how motivated and how excited they felt when they first started. Remember- it’s never too late to re-commit. So if you are ready for changing your relationship with motivation, I have some awesome tips that can help you with all kinds of goals.
Tony Robbins Talks about the Alkaline Diet
As I’ve mentioned in my previous blog posts, I adore Tony Robbins. I find his coaching really fascinating because what he teaches comes from his heart, and all his ideas are unique and inspiring. I always look up to him and do whatever I can to work on my creativity. I would love to be able to make changes in people’s lives just like Tony Robbins does! As a wellness and health freak, I was really happy to notice that in his coaching, Tony always underlines the importance of a healthy body with a connection to the mind and spirit. This is an undeniable fact. A couple years ago, I watched one of his motivational videos where he talked about the Alkaline Diet. I thought, “This must be one of his secrets!”
‘Go to the gym every day’, ‘You have to go to the gym every day’, ‘It just has to be done!’
This is what you may hear from many fitness coaches or personal trainers. Are they right? Of course they are! If you want to tone up, lose weight or gain muscle or simply refresh and feel better in your body- going to the gym everyday or at least 4 times a week is a MUST.
But… we all know that it’s all easy-said yet the reality can be a bit more difficult to handle… what do I do when I get my procrastination days? This post can be applied to overcoming procrastination no matter what activity you have chosen to do.

Have you done your health & wellness & fitness goals setting for 2014? I mean: a really serious one?
I am pretty sure that even if you haven’t, or you haven’t written them down, you still have been thinking about them. After all, with the end of December and the beginning of January, everyone seems to be talking about it. However, instead of simply saying ‘Happy New Year’ I would suggest saying: ‘Do whatever you can to make this your happy for yourself, your loved ones and everyone you interact with’.
You may be thinking that my post comes a few days too late as all the bloggers normally talk about it at the end of December or at latest on the second of January. Trust me- I have my own strategy. The reason for that is that I hate being in majority and I always take pride in doing things in a different way.
