Hello, it is time again for your weekly Lifestyle Delights … tips, research and ideas I had shared with my subscribers in May 2017.

Research on Circadian Rhythm I Just Found …

We all have a natural circadian rhythm. Aging influences this rhythm and contributes to age-related diseases. But not only that. A study published in February 2017, shows that even at a young age this rhythm can be severely disrupted by our lifestyle and environment. Just think about all the stress that we have in our life.

Write a Journal …

One activity that I have found extremely helpful since my childhood is writing a journal.

It helps to get things out of the head and on paper … allowing to let things go that otherwise keep rolling around in the head, to get motivated, … and to identify patterns in our life (and do something about them).

And it is a fascinating time capsule as it allows to keep memories that otherwise might be lost.

So my suggestion for you: Write your own journal, ideally every day. It doesn’t have to take long. 3 minutes, that’s all. You can note down what you’re grateful for, what you’ve achieved or experienced during the day, challenges you overcame, how you felt, questions you’ve asked yourself, ideas, or anything else that comes to your mind …

A Tip for Loving One Another …

Rainer Maria Rilke said: “There is scarcely anything more difficult than to love one another”, so when seeing Harvard psychologist Dr Holly Parker’s tips I thought I share one of them with you that you can put into action right away: …

We see more of what we focus on.

So for the coming week, look for all the good things in your partner (or child, friend, colleague, …). Write them down. And at the end of the week look at all the amazing things you’ve written down and feel more love filling you up.

Find many more tips and ideas in Holly’s new book If We're Together, Why Do I Feel So Alone?

Always Worth a Trip …

I’ve just arrived … in Berlin. I love this city. Not only because I was born here. It’s a city of art, artists and museums. A great place to go to is the Museum Island with 5 of the top museums in Germany … and the world. … Also, if you’re interested in some trivia, Berlin has once again been given the title ‘city of spies’. You even find a museum related to this …

Quote I’m Reflecting on …

A moment’s insight is sometimes worth a life’s experience – Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
