Colors & curd

For me light curd or yoghurt with low fat is the best choice for breakfast. It has a lot of protein, low fat and energizes me! In combination with berries, bananas or any other fruit it becomes even healthier and more attractive :p That´s why I wanted to show you some of my ´creations´ with curd/yoghurt and my favorite fruits. It´s really easy to do the right decisions when it comes to breakfast because there are sooo many healthy options that you can choose between. My breakfast varies EVERY DAY. I often have healthy pancakes, cereal, yoghurt, bread, a smoothie bowl or something similar. I really think that if you manage to start your day with rhe right (and enough!) food it will be easier to stay healthy throughout the day.

When I´m up very early and have a long, stressful day I usually add oats/oatmeal or cereal to it because it brings me some more energy to stay active and full until lunch. 
As you can see I really love to play with my breakfast and I really can recommend that because your meals will never be boring again ;)

Sometimes you can´t stay focused
sometimes you feel uninspired
sometimes you feel like there´s no one there to support or to motivate you
sometimes you want to start fresh tomorrow and on the day after tomorrow you realize you diddn´t.
sometimes you feel like you are woth nothing.

YOU have the control. Only YOU are able to be either happy or not.
Having negative thoughts is normal,
having bad days is normal.
and not feeling motivated every day is normal!

But getting back on track is important!
Imagine a better you and take a break from all the negativities in your life.

When I have those "sometimes..."-feelings I leave. I leave the place I was stuck in the last weeks to regenerate. I leave to experience new surroundings, to find inspiration, to fill my body with new energy and to focuse on myself. Thats what I did the last days.

We drove 5 hours to the north before we arrived at the sea. The weather on the first day was warm. Windy but warm. And thats when we went on a small Island. Beautiful beaches, light sand, Dunes and crystal clear water. Things that I love...that the most people love. But not only that was the reason why the trip was so soothing.
The fact that there were no cars and no big streets on the island made my feel free.
No loud noises. small houses in the pure nature. Birds coming close to you because they never had bad experiences with humans.

It´s one thing to visit a place with beautiful beaches, hot weather and with a tropical surrounding. You can find that in so many countries and they all are unique in different ways.
But it´s a different thing to visit a place without a good infrastructure, with pure nature and people who care about their environment. A place with a cold breeze from the sea in your hair and the luke warm sand between your toes. A place without tropical temperatures but a place that forces you to calm down.

And even if the temperature was not higher than 20° celsius, we went swimming.
Because that´s what you do when you visit a place like that. You don´t care about anything. And that´s what You have to do sometimes, even if it doesn´t feel comfortable first ;).

The last days were rainy, windy, cold and grey. And I loved it! The fresh air combined with the wind felt cleansing and was a necessity for a fresh restart. Because thats why I decided to join the trip. There will come a lot of changes in my life in the next time and I just wanted a clear mind before focussing on those new things.
Seeing  the Wadden Sea and exploring it is always a feeling I can´t describe. It holds such a natural beauty and it feels so weird to walk on the ground of the sea! Even if a walk through the wadden sea can be dangerous (if you don´t exactly know the time when the flood will be back) you will not regret it! And yes that´s why it´s on the world heritage list since 2009. And if you plan to visit the Dutch, German or Danish north sea coasts or their islands: You definitely need to visit the sea! Trust me!

And now after my fresh restart I´m ready to plan my year abroad! I´ve been accepted to Udayana University in Bali and will live there for a whole year! I´m sooo excited and I hope everything will turn out as I planned! But first: sleeping and dreaming of the deep blue sea I always fall in love with over and over again :)

with new energy!


 The last weeks were exhausting: preparing for my exams, moving in my new home, working as a part-time employee... I never had more than 6 hours of sleep per night and there was not much time for friends or even for myself. The only activity I managed to put in my busy shedule was going to the gym and doing some yoga now and then (I would have gained TOO MUCH weight if I diddn´t because of all that unhealthy foods I ate in the hectic rush!). But why did I do that? Why would I bring myself in such an exhausting situation? Well, I know it would be hard but it had to be done because I need to save money for a year I planned to spend abroad in order of my studies. I already applied at one university and hopefully they will accept me (If they do I will tell you immediately!). 
I had no problem with going to Uni in the morning, spending the day at work, doing sports in the late evening and doing some Uni stuff before going to bed because it made me feel good. Not physically- my legs were sore and I often felt sleepy. But it felt good to actually get things done! To know that your TV does not work since 4 weeks when you moved into that new apartment and you don´t even care about that. And it felt good to know that you are getting closer to your goal with every day you´re working hard.

But now that my exams are over I realize that I was in need for some free time. I´m still working part-time but I don´t need to go to Uni for the next three months and thats very relaxing for me (I have to get used to this though). So yesterday I made some healthy and tasty snacks and spent the day in my bed. It was so calming for me and I gathered new energy. I slept like a baby! 
My current situation is: breakfast, blogging and going to the gym now! Have a beautiful week and give all your best!
