The Holiday of My Life

It´s fall holiday and I´m in a my favourite country, in the US. It has been a long time since the last time I was here and therefore I am enjoying every moment of my trip! So as I am here I´m trying to live my life and focus on being present and forget about everything else. It has been a hectic fall so I am really enjoying my time without any schedules. Some of you might wonder why I haven't been posting as much as I did in the summer time.. Well, I am trying to find some balance in my life. I am often quite tired after work and I want to relax and spend time with my family and not be on my computer. This new posting pace has been better for me. I have a lot of ideas for blog posts but I haven´t got the time to sit down, write posts and download pictures. That being said, I still love blogging and I came here because I wanted you to have an insight on my trip. I will do a separate post on my trip later.  
Below are some pictures of my trip. Can you guess where I am?

How to Control the Hunger Hormone

This blog post´s topic is about an important hormone called Leptin.
What is it?
Leptin is a protein hormone produced in adipose tissue. Leptin is a satiety hormone and it plays a role in regulating appetite and metabolism. Leptin´s role is to give information to your brains how much fat you have in your body.  Leptin was found in 1954. Back in the days few scientists conducted a mouse experiment in which the scientists were investigating a few mice which were eating all the time and because of that they gained a lot of weight. The reason behind this overeating was the fat tissue and it´s problems of not producing enough leptin. If there is no leptin production, brains don´t have any signals about how much fat tissue the body has. 

One of leptin´s role is to increase our appetite. For example if you have over eaten during Christmas time, you will gain weight. As a result of this Leptin levels will increase in your body and inform your brains to increase your resting metabolism so you …

The Secret to a Successful Weight Loss

108 million Americans are on a diet at any given time. Americans spend 65 billion dollars each year on weight-loss products.
When it comes down to losing weight, there are millions of guidelines and diets which will tell you what and how to eat and which foods to avoid. However, in my opinion if you want to have lasting results you should never just be on certain "diet"for a certain period of a time. Instead you should choose a diet which is sustainable, healthy and based on some dietitians' recommendations. And this diet should last forever. It is called a healthy lifestyle and learning how to eat healthy for the rest of your life. If you have problems in this area, I would recommend you to see a nutrition specialist who could help you individually. My online Nutrition Packages are available here if you are interested.
There are many studies which indicate that the fact which matters the most is the calorie content and not the proportion of macro-nutrients that determi…

8 Tips to Relax When You're Busy

I had a really tough week the other week. It came to me as a surprise how tough it actually was.. I was busy at work (no time for drinking tea or sitting on a break 😅) and after work I had errands and schedules every day. Besides this I was solo parenting a lot, which puts my son in a weird mood.  This is not how I usually live my life because I try to plan my weeks so that I have time to just relax after work and literally just be at home. When you are busy at work, it helps, if you know that by the time you get home, you are not busy anymore and you don´t need to rush anywhere.. When I had this busy week I was wondering that do young couples with kids live like this every week? Anyway, as I was having this crazy week, I figured I could write about tips how to relax on a days like these when you don't have a lot of time to relax..


Here are my tips:Go to a sauna or have a warm bath. Sauna always makes me feel relaxed and sleepy. Swim in a lake (cold water will make you feel so r…

What's so special about these? Among other things, spices and herbs help our body to protect it against free radicals, stress and different environmental factors.

Planning your meals so that vegetables and whole food grains are…

How to Stay Young and Healthy

The other day I watched a really interesting BBC document about how to stay young and more specifically how to prevent dementia and Alzheimer's disease. As you get older your brains begin to shrink. As a result of this your cognitive skills diminish. How to prevent this? The key is to use your brains on a daily basis. More specifically scientists have discovered that learning a new language has the most efficient way to prevent dementia because learning will increase the size of your brain. According to these scientists other important ways to affect the size of your brain were
