At the end of each year, it is necessary to take stock of the year that ended and start planning the objectives for the following year. I have to be honest, my 2018 has been really satisfying, both from a personal point of view and from a business point of view. I was able to accomplish most of my goals, I was able to travel a lot, both for work and for personal reasons, and I continued my journey of personal growth. When I look at the results of my 2018, I am delighted, and I can declare that “productive” is the word that best defines my year. However I am not satisfied, because now it is no longer 2018, but it is 2019, a new year, new challenges, further objectives, the sheet is white again, and I have to write my story again. I know that every year everyone…

This week being Mental Health awareness week, I decided to write how I keep my mental state in check. Growing up in Africa, made me see Mental health in a different way. I grew up in an environment where mental sickness was viewed in a different perspective, take whatever without complains and the likes of depression, anxiety, bipolar etc. was a myth, even moving to after Europe roughly 14 years, it is still a learning curve everywhere, and requires more awareness. Mental Health іѕ the “psychological ѕtаtе оf ѕоmеоnе who is funсtіоnіng аt a satisfactory level of еmоtіоnаl аnd bеhаvіоurаl аdjuѕtmеnt”.

One Friday the 13th I turned a year older, and I’m grateful and thankful to have the privilege of to enjoy another birthday The last year was intense and full of all kinds of events, both positive and negative. When I look at myself in the mirror, I know I have become a very different person from last year. The experiences enriched me and contributed to my personal growth, now I have the feeling of knowing myself better and being able to manage many situations in a better way. This remarkable result was not achieved only thanks to my commitment, but it is the result of my interaction with each one of you. Every person who is part of my life has made his/her contribution to allow me to get to this point and I will always have a debt with you for your help. Each of you has incredibly…

“Sandra, wake up and smell the coffee, the world is too big for you to stay in the dark.” Those were the words I told myself last year as I tried to give my life a more positive direction. The New Year came in, and I equipped myself with positive thoughts and energy towards productivity; in work, in business, loving myself, and towards humanity. It is the start of the 4th month of the year, and I appreciate myself for how much I have been able to achieve. Stepping out from shards of sharp edges into the grass of freedom and I have never felt so alive. The transition is gradual, but I’m impressed with my progress. In January, my office appreciated my good works and gave me a promotion. What a good way to start the year! I have so much energy and enthusiasm to work more, not just…

Ready to make “great health” your New Year’s resolution? Starting in the kitchen is a great first step! Taking bite-size steps toward a better you is a great way to achieve your health goals—no need to dive head first into larger-than-life changes. Commit to cooking dinner at home 4 nights a week, or incorporating “Meatless Monday” challenges into your diet. Experiment with recipes from different diets like Mediterranean or keto. By mixing things up with your diet, you can more quickly see results (and have fun in the process!)
