Have you ever wondered what input and behaviours journalists expect from you, so you can increase your chances of getting your start-up or small business into the press?

With public relations, it’s like in most business areas: If you know what the other side wants from you, this gives you a better chance to act accordingly. And if you do so, it’s more likely that things go the way you want them to. Is it a guarantee? Never. But the odds increase drastically.

#Biohacking has become kind of a buzzword. There are a lot of misconceptions around it. In many heads, it’s still connected to a lot of science fiction-ish ideas and cyborg-esque examples but lacking the more moderate side and concepts of fundamental hacks everyone can leverage in everyday life.

Contrary to popular opinion, getting started with deliberate biohacking is not just for extreme or experimental personalities. It is for everyone.

And the best part: It does not have to be difficult, complicated, expensive or time-consuming at all.

On the contrary, to begin with, it is super easy to start enhancing your…

I always dreamed of becoming a freelancer and earn my money through writing and consulting. But for the longest time, I didn’t, because I was busy procrastinating. Wait, what?

I have always been a doer, particular driven and reasonable successful in my company jobs. I was a self-sufficient unstoppable engine. My colleagues knew they could rely on me to take on responsibility and make things happen.

So, when I started thinking about quitting my job to go freelance, I knew it would be hard, but I thought I got this. Little did I know, I was way too hasty.

You Didn’t Just Leave My Mum. You Divorced Me, Too. And I Am Finally Okay With That!

The first man who left me was my so-called “father” at that time. When my mother split up with him, he divorced not only her but me too.

I share my journey, from the challenging part, the hurt, the blame, the feelings of not being worthy of love. I had to face my trauma to become who I am today: A confident woman that found herself along the way through a swamp of toxic relationships.

I hope my story will be perceived as a small beacon of hope.

The last time I saw you

We spend a great week together. Maybe the best we ever had…

Meditation is also well known to be very beneficial for our mental health, boosting our creativity and enhancing a lot of other things. Not to mention the various perks in between that affect our physical and psychological well-being, such as reducing stress.

It can even change our brain for the better, helping with things…


It is in your power to choose healthy relationships and happiness.

Many of us have developed unhealthy attachment styles as kids. As adults, we are unconsciously still driven towards relationships that mimic the toxicity and pain we experienced in our childhood. We keep on struggling as we grow older and seem to always end up with the wrong people close to us — until we face some hard truths and learn our lessons.

Learning how to stop letting toxic relationships rule our lives is a challenging and uncomfortable process. But it is not as painful as spending the rest of our lives with people that are capable of making us miserable…


If you are in a relationship that makes you often cry, ask yourself if you want to date a human or an onion.

“If it costs you your peace, it is too expensive.”

I firmly believe that happiness is a choice and being happy is a skill that can be learned and improved. But that was not always the case.

“Notorious melancholic,” that is what I used to call myself. Or as Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, a famous German literate put it: “On top of the world, or in the depths of despair.”

The sorrow I experienced was inseparably intertwined with the painful relationships I had with my parents, my friends and significant others. …

If you find yourself time and time again in toxic relationships, struggling with setting and preserving healthy boundaries, or if you are having serious commitment and trust issues, the chances are high that you have developt an inherent unhealthy attachment style or even an attachment disorder.

You have learned how your primary caregivers react and treat you. For example: When you cried to signal that you need something, what did they do? Did they do anything at all or left you sobbing?

This way…
