Doodle Fastfood And Sweets To Loose Weight?

Do you also belong to that type of people, who always plan to eat more fruits and vegetables, but can’t avoid sweets and fastfood?

I read about a study, published in the Journal of Behavioral and Brain science, where it said:
when you doodle unhealthy food like sweets and fastfood it makes you more happy and you will eat more healthy in future.
So I tried it this morning and made some sketch notes of unhealthy food, which came immediately to my mind.
After that I was not hungry anymore (and I am most of the time hungry).
Try it out. What are your experiences?
To have a changing result of your habits, you should do it at least for 2 weeks everyday. I am going to do the same.
I would really appreciate to get some feedback about your experiences.

Don’t Date A Girl Who Travels

To all my -especially- female friends.

I found this article and video about girls who travel on lovethesearch.com.
I am not sure, if I like the title, but this is what I am and live right now.

And while I am watching it, I am inspired and become hungry to explore more of this beautiful world.

And here is the amazing video, created by the lyrics below:

Don’t date a girl who travels
She’s the one with the messy unkempt hair colored by the sun. Her skin is now far from fair like it once was. Not even sun kissed. It’s burnt with multiple tan lines, wounds and bites here and there. But for every flaw on her skin, she has an interesting story to tell.

Don’t date a girl who travels. She is hard to please. The usual dinner-movie date at the mall will suck the life out of her. Her soul craves for new experiences and adventures. She will be unimpressed with your new car and your expensive watch. She would rather climb a rock or jump out of an airplane than hear you brag about it.

Don’t date a girl who travels because she will bug you to book a flight every time there’s an airline seat sale. She wont party at Republiq. And she will never pay over $100 for Avicii because she knows that one weekend of clubbing is equivalent to one week somewhere far more exciting.

Chances are, she can’t hold a steady job. Or she’s probably daydreaming about quitting. She doesn’t want to keep working her ass off for someone else’s dream. She has her own and is working towards it. She is a freelancer. She makes money from designing, writing, photography or something that requires creativity and imagination. Don’t waste her time complaining about your boring job.

Don’t date a girl who travels. She might have wasted her college degree and switched careers entirely. She is now a dive instructor or a yoga teacher. She’s not sure when the next paycheck is coming. But she doesn’t work like a robot all day, she goes out and takes what life has to offer and challenges you to do the same.

Don’t date a girl who travels for she has chosen a life of uncertainty. She doesn’t have a plan or a permanent address. She goes with the flow and follows her heart. She dances to the beat of her own drum. She doesn’t wear a watch. Her days are ruled by the sun and the moon. When the waves are calling, life stops and she will be oblivious to everything else for a moment. But she has learned that the most important thing in life isn’t surfing.

Don’t date a girl who travels as she tends to speak her mind. She will never try to impress your parents or friends. She knows respect, but isn’t afraid to hold a debate about global issues or social responsibility.

She will never need you. She knows how to pitch a tent and screw her own fins without your help. She cooks well and doesn’t need you to pay for her meals. She is too independent and wont care whether you travel with her or not. She will forget to check in with you when she arrives at her destination. She’s busy living in the present. She talks to strangers. She will meet many interesting, like-minded people from around the world who share her passion and dreams. She will be bored with you.

So never date a girl who travels unless you can keep up with her. And if you unintentionally fall in love with one, don’t you dare keep her.
Let her go.

For the girls? Does this inspire? Can you probably identifiy yourself or is it just a faraway dream for you? Would you say, as atravelling girl it’s not possible to have a relationship?

And for the men? Is it deterring to meet a girl like that?
I would really to know about your opinion.

I thought I am ready now for a relationship, but I know I will go on with travelling for the next years. So is it possible to have a partner then?

Hmm, I have to think about it. Hope you can help me. 🙂

Life is like riding a bike. To keep your balance – you must keep moving.

Life is like riding a bike.
To keep your balance – you must keep moving.

You can compare life with riding a bike.

In the beginning we have to learn how to keep the balance and move forward, to ride a bike.

After a while we get used to it and to it with ease. That’s what life is, when you live it to its fullest: easy and relaxed.

But we often stuck in situations, routines, hamster wheels. That means, you get out of your balance. …and fall.

You can stay there or you can get up, take your bike and start riding.

Once you achieved this point of continuous moving, you can keep your life balance with ease.

Life is like Icecream. Enjoy it, before it melts.

Life is like Icecream. Enjoy it, before it melts.

Life is like Icecream.

We often like to wait for the perfect moment, the perfect opportunity. For example, “when I will earn more money, I will do this or be that”, “when I will have more time, I will do a worldtrip or found an organization”.

We are always waiting in life – and don’t see how it’s passing by next to us. Life is now. So don’t wait for the perfect moment. The perfect moment is now. Enjoy your icecream, enjoy life now – its’ melting anyway – so the more you enjoy it now, the more you get from it.

Life is like a canvas. It begins blank and every day is like another brush stroke

Life is like a canvas. It begins blank and every day is like another brush stroke.

Your life starts like a white blank piece of paper. It might be difficult to start, but you have any choice how do design your own canvas of life.

Once you started – and if you recognize how you can influence the design, output and power of your canvas – you can create an impressive outcome.

And with every day, you will make another brush stroke of your final result, you will leave behind you one day. By living, giving, receiving, trying, failing, succeeding and exploring, you will develop a powerful canvas, you and nobody else will miss it.
