Long time ago my daily routine consisted of early morning run, fitness session and aerobic class in the evening. I had low self-esteem, 5kg more and an addictive behaviour regarding exercise (and food).
Now my self-care rituals are a mixure of this: morning prayers, meditation, gentle yoga classes and most important: bubble baths and candle lights. My esteem is high, I feel as sexy as ever and the only addiction I still swear by is called SELF-CARE.
I exchanged TO-DO lists with counting down my desires and swopped running around the stadium for 90’mins Thai massages.
Woman, don’t buy it into the fast tempo and people telling you that you’re missing it out. I know you’re a mother, I know you are a business woman, I understand you volunteer and I get it that you “run the world”.
But please, take time for yourself. The right men around you will always support your goddess time. The right men around you will even turn on the candles for you.
Will you take some time for yourself today? With what will you nourish your beautiful self?

Being so freaking grateful.
That things are as they are.
That sometimes we have to go through
so we can see through.
Do you know the feeling when excitement after arrival to your holiday destination rubs off and effects of long flight (combined with effects of coming to a different time zone) start kicking in?
If you count yourself as a proud traveller, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.
But the thing is that we have no plans to be tired on holidays or (even worse) in a paradise like this, right?
Good Girl Gone Surfing – Week VIII
I’m scared of seeing blood. I always fainted when nurses took my blood and I hated those systematic examinations you have in primary school, where they check you up and take your blood. I knew I was going to faint and all my schoolmates would ask: »What’s wrong with Sandra«? Well, nothing was wrong with me, except that I was a bit of »a chicken«.
However, I do believe that having your blood checked up is great and I also deeply believe that people should breathe more correctly. Cause let’s face it, the deeper and better you breathe, more healthier, cleaner and more detoxified your blood is going to be.
Good Girl Gone Surfing – VI. Program
I have a thing for people on the stage. People who speak and perform. I am crazy about people who embody a powerful, self-confident body posture. I adore those, who know how to package information and put it out like a hot chocolate cake. This kind of people can sell me anything. This kind of people I admire.
There is a guy out there.
Millions of people know him.
Some people hate him.
I love him.
He is Tony Robbins and my »all time favorite quote« is by him and it goes like this: » What you focus on is what you will feel.« Now, I could write down three pages about how that sentence changed my life, but for today, let me share with you a yoga routine where what you focus on is extremely important.
