How to mess up your meditation

Meditation is easy. But it’s also easy to mess it up. There are some deeply rooted misbelieves about mediation which some of us can’t seem to get out of their heads.

And these 3 are the most common ones:I can’t meditate because I can’t stop my thinkingThis is the most common misconception concerning meditation. Have you really ever tried to stop your thoughts? It’s impossible! You will be...

Workout Wednesday: check your motives

Not long ago I read an inspiring article about sports and movement. I’ve already hinted several times that working out isn’t something that comes naturally with me. It takes effort and most of the time I go through some resistance before I start. But the moment that I’m actually running through the park or doing my poses in yoga class, I’m enjoying it. However, this resistance thing is slowly falling away as my motives to exercise are getting more sincere.

A few years ago I could stand in front of the mirror with a very critical eye. Every bump, wrinkle or fold was put under a magnifying glass. Whether we like it or not, we women (and men as well) have a slightly distorted view on what our...

The power of gratitude, turning pain into gain

Almost every day (not always, I have bummer days as well) I feel a deeply rooted gratitude for life. I am grateful to have healed from cancer twice; grateful for everything I have learned during and after being sick. And of course enormously grateful I can now support and coach others that are going through the similar experiences I had.

The beauty about life is that every single experience can be turned into a meaningful one. Even though if they can be hard and tough. But it is up to you what your outlook on those experiences is. One of the things I have always refused when...

Big News. My first Book is coming out!

I’m so incredibly excited to finally share this news with you! My first book is going to be published by Spectrum this coming fall. I’m over the moon so happy!

In the last few months I have been working hard with writing it. You might have noticed that it has been a bit quiet in the last couple of months, on my social media channels. Well that is all going to change! Because more amazing things are...

4 Levels of Learning: creating new positive skills and habits

When I got cancer for the second time, I changed my lifestyle drastically. And that didn’t just happened overnight. Learning new routines, new eating habits, new ways of looking at life, it takes time and effort. You can’t just do it all at once.

  Level 1: Unconscious Incompetence This is the level of ignorant bliss. You don't know what the problem is or how to identify it. Let alone that you have any idea on how to fix it. So you have to recognize the...

The Power Of The Heart

Is it a book? Is it a movie? It’s both! And I have to be totally honest with you here. I haven’t read the book nor have I seen the movie.? But the moment I heard of the Power Of The Heart, my own heart skipped a beat! I was already convinced that the heart is not just a blood pumping muscle in our chests. And this project proves it.

  I did see the trailer and it already reveals that there is scientific proof that the heart energy is connected with consciousness that goes beyond time and matter. Sounds pretty cool right? And then these amazingly...

How to create a healthy morning routine

This is how I created a healthy morning routine

But for a lot of people the morning I just described is far from reality. Hurrying, making sure your kids have eaten something and hurry some more to get them to school in time. Meanwhile you also have to throw together an outfit for yourself...
