End of March a local initiative spontaneously started a plastic fasting challenge and our appartment house got invited as well. Caring about sustainable living and because I’m naturally curious what I can improve, I decided to join: Sharing sparked conversations sparked learning (sparked change) First of all, sharing this challenge on Twitter and with friends […]

Using the space that emerged wisely

About a month ago my 6-Minutes-Diary ran out of pages. One thing was crystal clear: I wanted to keep the journaling routine as it has value for different ‘customers’ of different ‘services’ in my life.

The streak – a story on habits, on bragging and on limiting beliefs

Different needs, different tools!

What made me change the journals earlier than expected… That unexpected clarity which I gained after some weeks working with the Clarity Journal made me take a medically forced prescribed rest to get healthy again. My days almost instantly looked quite different compared to how they looked when I started off with the Clarity Journal. […]

Sewing and the beginner’s mindset

As a result of my daily journaling reflections I recently bought myself a sewing machine. My intent was that I would like to have an activity in my life that allows me to get creative with my hands, produce something valuable and at the same time transisiton my brain in a different-from-work-mode from time to […]
