Let’s talk about stress. It seems to be something that I’ll have to work on forever. As someone who’s overwhelmed pretty easily, I constantly have to keep track of my stress levels. With every year that goes by, I feel like I have to get more creative about the tools and ways I manage and reduce stress.
Oh May, you were kind of a special month! It felt like riding a rollercoaster. Decisions for the future, beautiful moments as well as painful moments. While life’s natural ups and downs are somewhat manageable, sometimes all the positive affirmations in the world can’t change the way you feel in a moment of overwhelm, sadness and/or pain. But should they, anyway?

Who am I? What am I doing here? What’s my life’s purpose? And why the hell do I feel so lost? A few years back I reached a point in my life where I asked myself these (and many more) deep questions.

Quite a lot of time has passed since I uploaded my last blog post. Again. I guess I’m still learning to adapt to the ebbs and flows of life and how to mindfully manage the inevitable changes that come with it. It always comes back to that practice of mindfulness.

However, I’d like to continue on with the next cycle phase, which is ovulation phase (3-5 days), and therefore the next recipe I’d like to share with you: Avocado on my favorite homemade & gluten free buckwheat bread.
The next phase in your cycle is the follicular phase (7-10 days). During this phase the follicles in your ovary mature and estrogen levels increase to thicken the uterine lining so that it is prepared to host an egg. All hormones are at low levels right after your bleeding but they’re slowly starting to increase during this phase. Read More
I know, it’s been a while since I took the time to sit down and write a blog post. Life’s been busy. I guess we all go through busy phases from time to time. I’m working again and it sometimes makes me feel like my life is dictated by a somewhat tight schedule. Still, I’m trying to find ways to keep my diet as versatile and nutrient-dense as possible. I’m doing my best to stay on top of my health, both physical and mental. In the past I haven’t done such a good job there. It resulted in poor health, physical illness and depression.
