Getting rid of insecurities (no time for that baby)

We talked about insecurities this morning during the French live my friend my sister. I have a video for you about it entitled “Here’s a quick way to let go of your imperfections.

Body and mind (where the magic lies)

I mentioned how I noticed that working on my mind helped my body, for instance by doing guided meditations. I love the meditations of Boho Beautiful. Working on my body sometimes means cleaning my second brain, aka the intestines. There is a very strong link between the gut and the emotions. I noticed it very strongly during my last colonics session: “How to free your heart or between the brain and the second brain”. I also shared about the anti parasite cleanse by Markus Rothkranz that I did twice and loved it: “How to use the Parasite Free product from Markus Rothkranz? antiparasite anticandida.

Salad dressing (raw of course)

Lastly, the raw recipe of the day for my grated cucumbers, zucchinis and butternut squash is: cashews or raw peanut butter, rosemary, nutritional yeast, garlic, onion, ginger, turmeric, fresh and sundried tomatoes, tamari, lemon.

See you soon my friend my sister!

To be reborn

I would like to start by sending a very nice thought for my friend Sandra who will recognize herself.

When he disappears

The following video about ghosting by Teal Swan “The Truth About Ghosting – What To Do If You Get Ghosted” really helped me turn the page my friend my sister.

Feeling like a new person

We have the choice to take each new day as a blank slate full of opportunities my friend my sister.

Schools abroad

To answer your question, if your child is not bilingual, start by enrolling him in an English school if you are going to live abroad. In a few years he will become bilingual in the local language.

The series on weight loss is on the blog.

Practicing yoga at home

Part of my life has been changed thanks to Yoga With Adriene because her videos are great for beginners. You never get bored. I have practiced them for 7 years now.

I feel it’s now time to up my game with the advanced yoga videos by Boho Beautiful. Am doing a split practice of 30 minutes every evening now, together with a morning yoga video. I change my morning yoga video every day. 

To eat or not before working out?

Honestly, it would have seemed crazy to me to work out without eating first before I practiced intermittent fasting. Now that I’m used to starting eating late in the morning, it feels natural to practice fitness and yoga around 6am without having breakfast beforehand. Please consult your doctor first before making the switch my friend my sister.

A question from my friend Késoued

Here is the site of the artist Késoued who asked me this morning how long it took me to achieve the headstand on my head and forearms. The answer is: very quickly! I learned it in yoga class and within less than a year I was doing it easily, first on a wall then on my own and everywhere (on the beach, in the kitchen …). Now my challenge is to do it on the hands only. And I want to achieve the middle split 😉

I made a video about keeping a good posture and taking care of your back on the blog.

Learning a new language

I have great tips for you if you want to broaden your skills my friend my sister.

I teach French on Preply which is a great website on which you’ll find a tutor for you in any language.

Making new friends

I thank Rose Nature for her question on the difficulty, sometimes, of making new friends. How to have trust in new people? Maybe by not giving everything from the start and by listening to your body: do I feel good inside when I’m with this person or not? We can choose to be friend with someone very gradually, giving trust in small doses as the person proves by their actions that they are worthy of it.

Resources for vegans

My daughter discovered a man who makes cool recipes without milk nor meat avantgardevegan and which prove that there are plenty of men who take care of themselves.

My daughter also wants to share her recipe with you: oatmeal, banana, cranberries or crushed pistachios or chocolate chips. Mix it all up. Shape small circles on a plate. Add a few drops of lemon and put in the fridge overnight without covering. The next day, the texture will be perfect and taste delicious.

No one is above others

The intellectual capacities of people with years of schooling and multiple diplomas have no relation to their level of integrity. So no insecurities about it. We have personal power and values. Let’s not give trust to someone just because they went to school for longer than  others.

Recipe of the day

All the recipes are on the blog of course.

I also recommend the two interviews we did with Jenny: “How to be healthier or interview with Jenny” and “Interview of Jenny or castor oil and vegan pregnancy”.

Today we made a salad with diced red peppers, grated zucchini and cucumbers, coconut milk, lemon juice, tamari, fresh basil, 1 nectarine, garlic, turmeric, ginger, onion and good vibes.

In this live, we covered the tanning tips I shared yesterday in the video “How to get the perfect tan”.

In this live, we covered the following points:

1. Living abroad as a family

2. The great Marisa Peer

Let’s be grateful that Marisa Peer’s content is in English my friend my sister as so many French people are frustrated not being able toa ccess her great ideas, videos and guided meditations. I love Marisa Peer!

3. How to balance studies, work and family

I have a long list of videos for you if you want to know what was my experience as a single mother of 2, working full-time and passing the bar exam.

4. Thank you Lucie

I was so moved by Lucie’s message. She wrote (in French) that: “I completely agree with you when you say that without these ordeals, the woman you have become would not be the same. I would add, this wonderful woman that you are now!” We evolve thanks to life experiences my friend my sister.

5. Smoothie recipe

Bananas, mango, blueberries, pineapple, fresh ginger, rosemary, raw chocolate powder and spirulina from Raw Living, almond milk.

Finally I mentioned a great interview I did yesterday of African artist Kesoued who was sharing how we can feel empowered even as single women, and single mothers.

My “self-care” t-shirt is on the store my love.

The birth of a healthy romantic relationship

I really enjoyed talking with a friend of mine about her new budding relationship. She looks very happy. Her man is all in but she wants to take her  time. I told her that according to Marisa Peer this is a very good sign. The healthy man takes great pleasure in giving to a woman who receives joyfully, while a woman maintains her discernment by going slowly. The goal is to feel safe, but also to let the man we love give to us, and then give back to him. The idea that it’s better to give first, hoping that the man will like us more, is wrong and dangerous. It’s the contrary. It has been proven that the amount of testosterone increases in men who give to the one they love, while estrogen increases in women who receive with pleasure.

I remember once refusing when my boyfriend wanted to buy me a bracelet and I regret it today. In fact, I didn’t think the relationship was going to end right after that. I should have accepted. He would have been happy to make me happy.

I really loved Marisa’s interview with John Gray, author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus: A Practical Guide for Improving Communication and Getting What You Want in Your Relationships: How to Get What You Want in Your Relationships. It’s titled “”DON’T date guys that turn you on right away.” – John Gray On Dating”. Basically, having a strong sexual attraction at the beginning is not a good sign for us my friend my sister. According to her. In my opinion too. Obviously it might be different for you my love, because I don’t give magic recipes here, I just share my experience.

Personally, I’ve never experienced love at first sight. So weird. It really never happened to me. And believe me, the men I loved, I didn’t just love them, I adored them and I still love them today. My point is that I can’t talk about what I don’t know. On the other hand, I loved the experience of knowing a man as a friend for years before I fell in love with him. I felt super safe with him and that was his best quality.

Let’s cook a meal together

My list of recipes is on the blog.

Grated zucchini with diced pineapple, mint leaves, a tablespoon of malted yeast for B vitamins and taste, a lemon, a tablespoon of tamari, a tablespoon of coconut oil, fresh turmeric, garlic, fresh onion, pepper

My raw chocolate and my spirulina come from Raw Living.
