Embarking Onto the The Road to Self- Empowerment: Shed Light on Who You Are

E-session_Sarah574

Are you aware of what makes you feel good? If so do you consider that in your daily choices? Getting caught up in daily living is easy and can lead us to living day by day without reflecting, without checking in with ourselves to see whether we are happy and healthy. A more fulfilling way of living is to take your life into your own hands, to chose how you want to live day by day- to empower yourself to live life in line with who you are towards contentment and health.

Choose Your Own Adventure In Life

IMG_7502

Life. Why are we here, and what is our purpose?

People have tried to answer this complex question for all of human history, but I don’t know if any of us can ever do this. Is it even possible for there to be just one answer that works for everyone, or is there even a need to answer it at all. All I know is that we’re all here in this universe for a short period of time, and that life should be lived to the fullest. Each of us should be free to follow our own paths, pursue our own passions, and determine for ourselves what is of value.

Keeping Up a Balanced Self-Care Practice As a Mommy

Sarah_Marcos_357Self- care is key to well-being, but it is not always easy to keep up with a regular self- care practice. For many it is difficult to develop one at all. Being a mom means putting ones own needs aside and fully being there for the baby. Balancing taking care of one self with taking care of the baby can be very challenging, yet very important. In this post I talk about why the practice of self- care as a mom is so important and how we as moms can balance fully being there for our baby with being there for our self. I call it self-care practice because it is a continuous process of learning. At times it works better and others less, always requiring us to reflect, learn, and adapt to any given moment.

Dealing With the Physical Changes of Pregnancy

Sarah_Marcos_122

Part of pregnancy is a changing body. All pregnant women have to deal with it. For some the changes are bigger than for others, but all of us experience changes. Not all changes are always visible to others and it often takes a while until others can see any changes, but the women itself can notice them as early as in the first month of pregnancy. The changes do not disappear with the birth, but stay for some time. Like with everything we can’t prevent it is most helpful to learn to deal with it in a positive way instead of complaining about it.

How Nutrition Can Safe a Life- Fighting Cancer with the Help of Nature’s Medicine

I remember so many occasions on which I would laugh or comment on my friend’s nutritional choice. One of them was vegan. I could never imagine that she chose not to eat a tasty red piece of steak, or a slice of delicious Swiss cheese. Why? What was she thinking? I would look at her and just shake my head… Often she tried to explain to me why she made the change and why I should think about this change as well, but once again I just shook my head.

I love life; I love everything it has to offer. Whether it is the bright sun rays shining into my balcony in the morning, a scoop of ice cream on a hot summers day or just a bright red apple that tastes juicy. I ate everything until just a few months ago when I was diagnosed with breast cancer stages 1,2,3 and metastasis in the lungs.

A Young Man’s Thoughts

leon1
Sometimes I wake up from lucid dreaming, feeling stressed and thoughtful. I feel trapped between the old me, which always rejected authority and a desire and a need to become a part of it.

Being young I felt opposed to structure, growing older I realized you need to master structures – to be able to create your own. The path towards finding your own way often starts with confusion and worries. I have learned to convert worries into constructive thoughts and triggers for growth. Once I realized I care about the future, I started making the most of the present.

sarah_marcos_208

It’s that time of the year again: the beginning of January, the beginning of a new year. For many people this means new goals and resolutions. The problem with that so often though is a lack of proper reflection, looking within, checking what truly is good for the self, setting the mind to working towards that and doing so on a daily basis. Our mind should not only be set to achieving our goals and resolutions for a few days at the end of the year and at the beginning of the year, but on a daily basis and in a positive way. A mind, which is set to function positively, will help us not only in working towards our goals but also in working towards a higher well- being. Daily affirmations and self- affirmation practices are great and simple ways to teach our mind to function positively. This post will explain what affirmations and self- affirmation practices are, how they work, and how you can create your own affirmations.

We Aren’t Just What is Visible at First Sight – Understand Yourself (and Others) Better by Looking Deeper

sarah_marcos_81

It happens so easily that we simply see our emotions, thinking, feelings, and actions of the very moment, forming an opinion or judgment as a result of that. It also happens very easily to do the same with others. What we forget however is that we are not that transparent. Us humans are sensitive, deep beings and not as simple as many of us treat ourselves. It is so important to become aware of that. If we don’t, we will misunderstand ourselves (and others), treat ourselves unfair and judge too quickly.
