Break the habit

When I am completely calm my soul speaks to me.

There is a small line between being in the flow of doing what you love with a free spirit and  sliding into a non-inspiring habit. The key is consciousness. Everything we do consciously will always be exciting, adventurous and new. All is unique. Habits can mock boredom. But  this is your life, queen and king. This is not boring but pure bliss! Remember what you love doing – and start. Break the habit. Do it with the excitement you had when you first started. Your love is waiting for you ❤

Throwback Portugal

Just a little throwback to our b-e-a-utiful time (comment if you get it 😉 ) in Porto.. gosh, I remember how I couldn’t realize being actually there, on the road, in a car, at the beach, in our own house, all along. And I knew it would seem like a fairytale when I’d return some day. We didn’t stay as long as we’d thought, but this -to me- only means that we’ll be back soon. Looking forward to actually start surfing and feel the truly energetic strength of the waves… it’s not explainable but I felt something I haven’t felt before when jumping into the waves in February. However, I am grateful for the very moment, really am. Got football shoes today for frisbee… excited to try them out. My mum said I look like a little football fanatic boy when walking in them in our flat 😀

Much love and light to every single one of you, we are one ❤

 

First vitamins, then waffles

Mornings like this *_* I usually have pure and raw fruits on my empty stomach in the morning, first thing after the fast the body does over night. Incredible health benefits, even plays a huge role in preventing and  curing diseases such as cancer! Sometimes, after digesting the fruit portion, I love to make myself waffles. Well, more frequently than “sometimes”. But they are gluten free, vegan, sugar – and fat free, is there still guilt? NO! All is well especially with homemade vegan chocolate spread (I blend up cashews and hazelnuts together with cocoa, agave nectar, vanilla, plant milk and a bit of coconut oil)! Have a lovely sunny summery successful happy productive relaxing bright day!! Love and light to you guys ❤

Long weekend (+smoothie bowl)

As I am working from home it really feels the same, whether it is a official holiday or not, but I am using the long weekend to get some things done with other people. That’s why I’m heading to Berlin tomorrow to meet up with Anna and another friend, gosh, we see each other so rarely atm, but we are still deeply connected which makes it easier 🙂

Yesterday evening I went to Ultimate Frisbee the second time, alone, mixed with 20 or so students that I didn’t know. Well, it went super well! Believe me when I say that I haven’t done anything nearly as exhausting as this for a very long time… but our game was wrong haha and I even scored a few times 😀 Besides, the team spirit is really special… really good! Unlike when climbing or canoeing or cycling, you really are part of a team and have to “Work” close together! Bought a frisbee now and am ready to challenge Lotte next week haha ❤

1 banana, handful pineapple chunks, handful frozen berries, hot water (to defrost) topped with cacao, orange, pineapple, walnuts,coconut and berries!

This was my breakfast, smoothie bowls (and any kind of bowls) are just so photogenic! Apropos photos… there may or may not be new ethical clothing outfit pictures up here shortly! ❤

 

SUGAR(free)BABE

Awesome yet so simple lunch! Boiled potatoes with Mango-Papaya-Curry paste and “egg-salt” (Kala Namak salt), cherry tomatoes and fresh parsley! Many carbs, low fat. Reminder to myself: decrease bad sugar and fat intake! And eat as much as you need – not less, not more! Motivation Saturday haha! Haven’t had cocolate tonight… success! 😀 (I am not saying that one should be restrictive [as long as it’s nutritious food], I just know that sugar is highly addictive and bad fats really do nothing good for your body, so I want to be able to live happily without them 🙂 It’s really just the temptation because “healthy food” is actually 1879725 times better and tastier! 🙂 )

Also I was driving today, first time in Germany since forever! Feels good to overcome such fears (however, rather respect in this case) and to just DO IT! Because in the end you’ll be okay and get more comfortable every second. So in case that any of you guys fears driving a bit… it’s ok. The roads are wide and even. Try driving in Portugal haha! ❤

CHEERS; JULA

PS: Whuuaaa Anna (santigoldblog.com) just manifested meeting a musician (that she loves) personally! Read her story on her blog it’s CraZzzZyy!!!
