You can see the coast of the sea from the beach. The sky is cloudy

Filling up on vitamin D isn’t particularly easy at the moment, but luckily you can find out in this article how you can fill up on energy for your everyday life so that you can deal with challenges in a more relaxed manner.

How to get a new energy in your home – Marijke Smittenaar persuades you to use smoke

The 23-year-old is Founder & Content Creator at Marijkesmitt and comes from the big city of Berlin. She was on RTL 2 for a year and a half and today she explains how she finds more peace within herself.

Nowadays it is very difficult to keep your inner peace in everyday life. My tip is to smoke incense. I smoke out my apartment every day and sometimes several times a day. Just send out all the bad vibes and let good energies in again, take three deep breaths and go wild to one’s favourite song. After that I always feel better and I notice how I slowly feel more peace inside me again.”

Our breath can be an anchor for us in chaotic times – Anna Lautwein has a simple tip

The Cologne singer is 27 years young and vocal coach of well-known singers and influencers such as Diana zur Löwen. From her, you’ll learn exercises to get calm.

My daily routine includes breathing exercises. They are important for me as a singer but also for me as a person and can really be helpful in very many situations in life. In order to calm down, my diaphragm has to become active so that my abdominal wall rises and falls when I breathe. I prefer to practice this while lying down, as it is most relaxing. I simply place my hands on my body below my belly button and feel my breath move my abdominal wall. It’s wonderfully calming!” (Anna Lautwein)

Digital or analog? This is how Alexandra Potratz strikes a balance

Our Alex (33) is the founder of intombi. Besides diapers, pacifiers and baby food, the new mom still has time to take care of her other baby, her girls’ organization intombi. In addition to top time management, she manages this with the help of her inner calm.

Zoom work meetings, Skype dates, WhatsApp friend groups, Family Facetime, Google Hangouts cooking classes and yoga webinars – everything is going digital in this Corona time. It’s all kind of new, sometimes alienating, and at the end of the day results in a life of digital chaos for many. I like digital and yet there is chaos for me too in this time of pandemic, in this time of digital. My answer and my compensation in this special time is simple and perhaps also a bit dusty: walking. Is there actually a nicer word for this, a more casual one? I don’t think so. It is as simple as it sounds. Take a walk (I found an alternative after all) and everything is relaxed. I used to think walking was overrated and maybe even a bit pointless if there was no goal associated with it. But today, walking is the new goal, the new destination at the end of a digital week.” (Alexandra Potratz)
