Thought comes always first and shapes our perception and our reality. Say, there is a rainy day. What is

Meditation. My new practice for the New Year.

If you have read some of my previous posts, you know that one of my desires for the passing year was to explore the topic of meditation. Up to some time ago, I have heard many positives about it.

digita detox

Digital Detox

In New York, the widespread detox trend is that in restaurants, bars and cafes access to Wi-Fi is strictly limited. Can you imagine that? Those more despotic venues restrict using laptops whatsoever – for 7 days a week! Where the (crazy) idea came from?  The owners have been forcing all customers to look away from their devices – instead of being online, switch to offline mode: focus on the meal,


Lifestyle Trends in 2017

Beginning of the year inspires me to take an insght in lifestyle trends and possible ideas of how will our reality shape in the course of following months. Why?

Super foods

Superfoods you just have to know

Most probably, you have already heard of superfoods: goji berries, chia seeds, quinoa, spirulina, etc. Not only their names are hardly pronounceable, but also it is rather hard to say how and why they have earned the super- prefix.
