My Easter

Happy Easter everyone!
One of my popular posts have been My Christmas so I decided to my Easter post as well ☺

This Easter:

  • We had a floor renovation at our house so we needed to leave our home. As much as I love my routines, it is refreshing to break them once in a while and have a change of scene. I found that new places give me inspiration. Read more here.

  • We were up before 6am each morning because my son really is a morning person 😂 But I have learnt to love early mornings. In fact I made a post about How becoming a morning person made me more productive. I recommend waking up early because you get so much done in a day and you are actually really tired in the evening so it is easy to fall asleep.

  • I ate few chocolate eggs and other sweets. Because life is a balance..☺💗

  • I felt so relieved because I didn't have to study for my final exam anymore. So I just organised my day how I felt. Studying is great but after exams you feel like F R E E D OM !

  • I spent time alone with my son. And I kept on thinking how time flies by...💗 He is growing so fast so now I truly try to enjoy every minute when he is still a little one.

  • I started one of my day off by going to the gym. I enjoyed working out alone because it was so early that no one was there 😊 Recently I have put more effort on focusing the quality and not the quantity on my workouts. I terminated my gym membership (it ends in the middle of April) so I could workout more outside and focus on my cardio. Our football season starts soon so I need to be in shape 😊 In addition, I want to start doing more yoga on a regular basis. Now I haven't had time because of my gym membership. Also, I can't wait warmer days so I can do yoga outside! Lately I haven't had good motivation for going to the gym because I wanted to workout outside. It has been a bit stressful to force myself to the gym and that was the main reason why I wanted to end my membership. I want to be able to exercise how I feel and not worry about all the money I have invested in a membership.

  • I spent a lot of time outdoors. Lately I have been obsessed with fresh air. I want to start my day with a brisk walk and end it with a walk. Also, in the middle of the day I need to go out and enjoy the sun.




I hope your Easter has been great!

Let's enjoy this spring weather,

I Quit Drinking Coffee and it Changed My Life

The U.S.Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says about 80 percent of U.S. adults take some form of caffeine every day. Accordingly, coffee is one of the most commonly used ingredients in the world. But caffeine does so much more than just keeping you awake.It’s a central nervous system stimulant that affects your body in numerous ways. So, let's talk about this and why drinking coffee might not be good for for you. While there has been numerous studies about the benefits of coffee, such as it increases alertness, lowers the risk of depression and reduces the risk of brain diseases, it has also negative effects on sleep and anxiety and it can cause headaches, panic attacks, adrenal fatigue, loss of energy, it can deprive minerals and vitamins from your body (read more on here)

5 Effective Weight Loss Drinks

When it comes to losing weight, there is a lot of different kinds of detox packages and weight loss drinks available. However, I would not recommend using these products because they only offer short term benefits if any benefits at all. Instead I encourage to use a weight loss method which is sustainable. Usually this is acquiring healthy eating and exercising habits for life. You can achieve this by following my Nutrition Programme.

Surely different starter kits, such as detox kits and ready to eat soup diets may come in handy but eventually when you have lost some weight, you should opt for methods which offer permanent results. Therefore, in this post I will share with you 5 effective weight loss drink recipes. I would like to remind you that drinking these drinks are not your only diet.  On the contrary, these are recommended beside your healthy meals and these healthy drinks could replace your other sugary sodas and juices..Besides they are also healthy and delicious too.

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

Why Are Cola Drinks So Addictive?

Did you know that in Argentina people drink the most soft drinks in the world? Their annual consumption is 155 liters per capita.  Not far behind is number two, the USA with 154 liters per capita. Americans are one of the largest consumers of the soda drinks in the world because of their modern lifestyle and high incomes. As it is very common to drink colas or other soft drinks but I have heard many people saying that they cannot stop drinking them. I started to wonder what is it that makes drinking Coca-Cola so addictive? Is it the caffeine, sugar or the artificial sweeteners? Besides what's the harm in drinking Coca-Cola? Below I will examine these three issues. Caffeine content
The caffeine content in a 330ml serving of regular (sugar) Coca-Cola is about 32 mg. Compared to a a mug of coffee which contains 100 mg of caffeine that is a bit less. According to the Coca-Cola company the caffeine in their drinks is not addictive. However, if you are really sensitive to caffeine, you…

My Healthy Morning Routines

What kind of morning rituals do you have on the weekends? In this post I will share mine. I try to follow a consistent sleep schedule in which I try to go to bed at 10 pm at the latest on the weekends and wake up at 7.30 at the latest. Having said this, if I stay up later than 10 pm I don't stress about it. But if I have a "normal" weekend at home this is what I usually do..I have found a lot of positive things about waking up early. Previously I wrote about how waking up early made me more productive and how to become a morning person. I encourage you to try this!
After I have woken up, I drink a glass of room temperature water which I have left in my toilet the previous night. Then it's time to move my body. This part of my morning is the best part which encourages me to wake up early. My morning movements depend on how I feel in that morning. Sometimes I go for a short walk or run just to get some fresh air and wake up my body. In my opinion there is nothing like…
