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?








The best things in this trip have been:


❤ drinking morning coffee in peace
❤ morning workouts
❤ slow mornings after breakfast
❤ waking up before the sunrise
❤ swimming in the ocean
❤ being without schedules and spending time together as a family
❤ sun therapy
❤ hotel breakfast
❤ the quietness

I don't know if it is the fall and dark winter time that is coming but lately I have been interested in finding more time to relax and finding a good balance between work and rest. Now it is easy to relax and quiet my mind when I'm on a holiday but I want to continue this feeling afterwards. I want to forget about being busy all the time and focus on the present. For me being outdoors have always helped me to de-stress and live in the moment.  In my opinion it is crucial to have some me-time or self care time every day, to reload your batteries. These can be small things, such as going for a short walks, reading a book. To do things that make you happy. I have a few blog post ideas about balance. I'll get back on this later on. Now it's time to continue my off-line time (this has also helped me to de-stress).

I hope you will find a good balance in your life.

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 ) As I mentioned before( here ), I quit drinking coffee last spring.

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 caffein

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 reading exercising in general learning a new skill, such as playing guitar studying In the document researches investigated whether regular walks or ping poll plays had an effect on the brain tissue. The test groups walked or played ping poll for 2 hours per week. The results revealed that both test groups gained positive effects on their brain tissue because of their increased exercise. Mo

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 opi
