Half Marathon Challenge -Yoga for Runners (or Running for Yogis!)

I’ve recently signed up for my second ever half marathon! Do I like running? Well not really… I find it exhausting and quite painful to be honest.

Be Brave – What would you do if you were not afraid?

Fear is something very instinctive and inner in most human beings. It is normal to be afraid of the unknown, of changes or threats, of new things… Especially when you lack the confidence in yourself to overcome whatever is the test you are facing. In yoga, being brave is something that became important to me … More Be Brave – What would you do if you were not afraid?

Affluenza – How to be successful and stay sane by Oliver James

I’ve recently finished another interesting book by Olivier James. This one is about how many of us these days, and our society, are affected by what he calls the Affluenza virus, which he defines as “a set of (life) values which increase our vulnerability to emotional distress.

Eating healthier food can be mission impossible if we have little time to cook and plan our meals. Life is busy these days and, as much as I like cooking, I don’t always enjoy of enough time all my evenings to do it properly. That’s why I found that cooking for 2-3 days in one … More Healthy eating – tricks to make it happen when you are too busy (or lazy)

This is how I (finally) quit smoking- 7 Tips

Despite I’ve always been very anti-smoking, there were a few years during my youth when I was too dependent on the cigarettes. Although I’ve never been a huge smoker, I’d like it in certain occasions or moments of the day. However, the simple fact of being a “smoker” was something that didn’t really suit the person I wanted to be. … More This is how I (finally) quit smoking- 7 Tips
