Life 101 (…or There’s a blog post for everything)

Most of my blog posts started out as discussions with my friends, struggles my clients are facing or things I have liked and learned myself and feel the need to share. The other day, I had such a discussion with a friend about a struggle. And I thought: 'I will write a blog post about that'. And then I thought: 'Wait, I already HAVE a blog post about that!' Funny that. So today I thought I'd share some past posts with you just in case you find yourself in a certain situation. Enjoy! You feel stu [...]

Do you listen to your body?

Does your day always go according to you plan? Usually not right? We get interrupted constantly and things happen that we had not foreseen. You're at work and your boss asks you to do an urgent presentation. You put your normal work aside and are confident you can get this finished within the limited time.

I remember when I was a student and there were bursts of stress when we had a test. We'd procrastinate learning to the last minute and then try to cram it all in the day before the test. Major stress. I remember when I was a teenager or in my early twenties and dating was stressful. Other than that, I don't think I had much stress. Now things are different. It seems that stress is omnipresent, in every little corner of our every day lives. We all need some stress in our lives. Otherwise we would [...]

Looking for work-life balance?

Work-life balance. It's the thing we all seem to strive for nowadays. Our work takes many hours of our day. We are so busy with meetings, calls, demanding bosses that when we come home we have used up many of our energy points. But then the other life starts: there are kids to pick up from or drive to places, groceries to buy, meals to cook, doctors to see, gardens to mow, partners and family to please, activities to attend... There is hardly any time left to breathe, let along energy to do any [...]

Stressful vacations

Stress is an ignorant state. It believes that everything is an emergency. Nothing is that important - Natalie Goldberg Some years ago I went on vacation with my then husband and the kids.

Inaction is the number one reason for your stress

Are you stressed? If you are, what creates the most stress in your life? Your bills and the lack of money? Your partner? Your kids? Your health and looks? Your job you don’t like anymore? Your boss? Trust me, they are not the reason for your stress. The main cause of your stress comes from the fact that you know what to do about it but don’t do anything. And hence you become your own worst enemy. But fact is that your INACTION to change the situation is the number one reason for your stress. I [...]
