Welcome to the world of people, who from a bit of curiosity, or at the other end of the spectrum, because of an ultimatum, have made the decision to walk the first steps towards a less mistaken mode of perceiving… for a more balanced stress response!
From our negative moods as a starting point, our ability to transform unpleasant emotions into pleasant emotions requires a well-developed emotional intelligence (EI), and fortunately, it can be acquired! Read More
Many want to have a balanced life, but have no idea what that would look like, let alone reaching it.
I have made a good deal of progress towards having a balanced life myself, starting from just the opposite: in my previous careers, I was a workaholic. You could call this post the “Epilogue to the Story of a Recovering Workaholic.”
I didn’t get to have a balanced life in a day: it took years to build it from the workaholic starting point of my old past. It was very much worth the effort, and I want to encourage you to find inspiration to make changes in your own life from taking a look at my example. Read More
Creative dance exercises are very good for you. Did you know?
Many people live far too much in their heads. Our bodies are much more than vehicles for our thoughts. For proper oxygenation of all parts of our bodies, we need to move.
Some forms of physical exercise are quite repetitive, like running or lifting weights, two popular forms of exercise which only train a few muscles and neglect all the others, with the effect that the adepts are so often injured and in pain.
Instead, I much prefer activities that are more creative, and wholesome, which use all of our muscles, and our brains too at the same time. So here you will find several leads to get you started with including in your schedule on a regular basis some creative dance exercises for yourself and your well-being. Read More

Here is another wonderful activity: dance for wellbeing. In this article, if you are not already a dancer, and even if you are, I want to encourage you with getting started and keeping going.
By telling my story, I hope to convey the message that through a process of improvisation and experimentation, you can discover what form of dance for wellbeing to pursue for yourself.
You’ll agree: Many people love to dance.
It is a very natural human activity.
It gives them joy, companionship, fitness and much else.
However, some people are very disconnected from their bodies and they have accumulated negative experiences that put them in inhibited states where trying new things becomes very difficult.
They have a long list of excuses for not even trying.
But we all have bodies and using them is extremely important for good health.
Maybe there are many ways of using one’s body to oxygenate all your cells, but dance comes on top as the most fun and complete form of physical exercise. Hence, that’s why I strongly recommend you to improvise and experiment towards finding a form of dance for wellbeing. Read More
