My latest HuffPost article “How to Make a Decision” is online

We’ve all done it. We do it every day, sometimes even more than once a day. We make decisions. Making a decision is tough. It takes time, it’s risky, it’s scary, and sometimes it means letting go of the comfortable and familiar.

My mentor once said: if you cannot make a decision between two things or people, then you’ve already made one. Because NOT making a decision is a decision.

There are the kinds of decisions that impact others around us, and the ones that seem to only concern ourselves. A decision itself is usually not the challenge. It’s the results, changes, and outcomes that follow a decision.

Now, how do you actually make a decision? I gave it a lot of thought lately and came up with the top five ways that work for me and might be helpful for you to try as well. [..]

Healthy Einkorn Cookies

Happy holidays everyone!

It’s the perfect time for baking, either alone or with your loved ones! Christmas cookies are delicious but oftentimes full of sugar and butter. BUT here is a healthy, less sweet but also delicious, alternative for you: EINKORN COOKIES! 🙂  Einkorn is the “new” super food these days. It’s the most nutritious grain with a high protein and phosphorous, potassium, and Vitamin B6 content as well as many other very good-for-you ingredients. 

Buttermilk Red-Currant Einkorn Muffins

After all my travels, I finally had the time to bake again! So, I decided to try out my Einkorn flour from Biojoy and to bake some fresh and healthy buttermilk red-currant Einkorn muffins. They turned out to be super delicious, but also different from other muffins that I have baked so far. The Einkorn flour mixed with coconut oil and vanilla extract made it a little less fluffy and more “crunchy” — YUMM!

You’re wondering what Einkorn actually is?

“Soost Fitness Meets Hall Yoga” Class at Celebrity Sports School Berlin

Dear Yogilators,

Happy beginning of spring! The sunny and colorful season is about to get started and what is better than using this time to go out more and try new things?

About 2 weeks ago, I decided to finally go to the Celebrity Sports School in Berlin and take the “Soost Fitness meets Hall Yoga” class instructed by Detlef D! Soost and his wife Kate Hall. I’ve “talked” to Kate via Instagram before about taking a class with her, and now I had a day off, so I just went. Life’s too short!
