Let’s talk about mental health – using social media wisely

How many hours do you spend in front of your phone? How much time do you spend scrolling? How do you feel after you’ve been on social media and put your phone away?

5 am club – my experiences & lessons learned

On a Monday morning at about 6 am, I turned on my WiFi and checked what has happened on Instagram while I had been asleep. A story of a female founder I much admire here in Aguascalientes, México, asked the audience to share their favourite habit. Instinctively, I sent my answer: getting up at 5Continue reading “5 am club – my experiences & lessons learned”

How I learned to let go: the story of my burnout

I was 22 when I hit a burnout. It was at uni, during the time of my thesis, just before I graduated. I felt scared having it diagnosed as such. And, as with all shocking news at first, I fell into denial. ‘What?’, I thought, ‘but that isn’t possible!’ Of course it was possible. InContinue reading “How I learned to let go: the story of my burnout”

Why are we so scared of losing our income? – What COVID-19 taught me

This year has, so far, been a roller coaster ride for many. When the world went on lockdown, we were faced with an extra load of uncertainty in a VUCA – world. Luckily, things have slowly started to go back to ‘normal’, we can leave our houses, albeit with restrictions.

What does success mean to me? – How Mexico has opened my eyes and my heart

This morning I took part in a conference about product placement and entrepreneurship. I used to work in PR/Communications for several start-ups and I am familiarised with the concepts, strategies, and challenges founders are faced with especially at the beginning of their projects. What is success?, a question so often asked in that context. IContinue reading “What does success mean to me? – How Mexico has opened my eyes and my heart”

Was eine Wäscheleine mit dem Glück zu tun hat

Ich bin in Deutschland aufgewachsen. Was ich an Deutschland mag, ist, dass man viel sofort umgehend parat und zur Stelle hat. Was ich an Deutschland nicht so mag ist manchmal, dass alles seine Richtigkeit haben muss. Wenn ich eine Hängematte möchte, dann am besten eine teure, die ich mir in den Garten stellen kann, dieContinue reading “Was eine Wäscheleine mit dem Glück zu tun hat”

Müssen wir immer von “Diversität” sprechen?

Ich habe das Wort selbst in einen meiner Blogposts groß geschrieben. Sogar an die Überschrift gesetzt. Warum? Weil es irgendwie in den “Jargon” übergegangen ist, und das, was ich meinte, eben am besten unter dieses “Keyword” fiel. Da kann ich machen, was ich will, der Blogbeitrag wird dennoch am besten unter dem Stichwort “Diversität” gefunden.Continue reading “Müssen wir immer von “Diversität” sprechen?”

¿Qué es el minimalismo? – Por qué decidí ser minimalista

Todo comenzó un día en septiembre. Me mudé. Desde Alemania a Escocia, y no podía llevar todo en una sola maleta con la cual iba a viajar. No podía llevar otras maletas, hubiera salido muy caro. El dinero nos pone límites – y oportunidades. “Empiezo un nuevo capítulo”, pensé, “Voy a sacar todo que yaContinue reading “¿Qué es el minimalismo? – Por qué decidí ser minimalista”

A kinder Mother’s Day

For those who are shamed because they don’t want to have children. For those who want to be mother, but can’t. For those who have lost their child or children.

Por qué no me levanto a las 5 am para hacer yoga

Les comparto mi rutina de las mañanas hace como unos 2 o 3 años. – 5.00 Levantarme – no usar el celular hasta las 8.00 am– 6.00 Alberca – 7.00 Piano– 8.00 Biblioteca – … Dormía poco, comía poco. El mundo me festejaba. Logré organizar y controlar mis días hasta que parecía un reloj. MiContinue reading “Por qué no me levanto a las 5 am para hacer yoga”
