    surf, yoga & vegan resort in Sri Lanka

    Resorts and retreats become more and more popular. Not only in Asia (Thailand, Bali, Sri Lanka, India, …) they seem to be very in style, but also in Europe (Spain, Portugal, Italy,…) yoga, surf or ayurveda fans can find a happy place for their soul.   During my time in Sri Lanka I was lucky enough to attend such a retreat. Doing so at the end of my 17-days-of-travelling-Sri-Lanka, it has just been the perfect and best way to end my already incredible time on the beautiful island.   My amazing friend Sandra and her husband Jack found a great land in Sri Lanka during their travels and spontaneously decided…

    2 choices in life

    The other day I came across a picture that really caught my attention. It got me thinking and wouldn’t let me stop pondering about its meaning. I really want to share this massive thought with you, as I believe that so many of us can truly benefit from this:   We ALWAYS have 2 choices in life   The comic showed two men trapped in deep holes. While one guy sat depressed, sad and truly unhappy about the current situation at the bottom of the hole, the other one was scraping soil off the walls building stairs into the high wall. The sentence underneath the photo went like this: “This is…

    The benefits of meditations

    Why do people do meditations? What do those who do, gain from sitting in silence? What impacts does this habit have on us – our brain, our body, our relationsships… our life?   The other day I watched an amazing documentary titled “the healing power of meditation“.

    The concept of yin and yang

    Yin and Yang is a Chinese concept I’m sure many of us have heard of. But what really does Yin and Yang mean, and how does it play a role in our lives? Well let’s start this way: Balance in our lives, body and mind is the key component for overall health and wellbeing. Without balance, injuries, sickness and all kind of health issues occur. And Yin and Yang is that balance. Without it there is no way to be happy, healthy and enjoy life…   Everything in this world is either mainly Yin or Yang. While Yin is feminine, Yang is masculin. While Yin is one thing, Yang is the…

    FAQ – Is a vegan lifestyle healthy?

    If you really think about it, it’s kind of funny to ask oneself if “only” eating vegetables, legumes, fruits, grains – and all those other things that grow on our planet, which fall in the category of “healthy foods” and the ones we should eat most of – is healthy. But I myself was worried too when I first came to this lifestyle – our whole life we got told that meat, dairy and eggs have to be part of our diet; if not we would miss out on essential nutrients and became weak or sick.   However quite the opposite is the case. Lots and lots of people who…

    FAQ – Isn’t a vegan diet very single-sided?

    When I tell people that I eat a plant based diet, you won’t believe how many non-vegans stare at me with an open mouth and ask me in an incomprehensible way what else than plain salads, apples and bananas there is for me to eat. There for sure are vegans who just stop consuming meat, dairy and eggs and only eat the stuff that is left to choose from in a “normal” diet – and for sure that is very single-sided and even unhealthy! However those are rare occasions that somebody chooses to eat such a plain and unbalanced diet. If you are profoundly convinced by the reasons to adapt…
