    Five feel-good habits for 2019

    Yep, it’s that time of the year again!  Probably like a lot of people, I’m not a champion at keeping up with my resolutions. Yet instead of beating myself up for giving up – and truth be told, not remembering – last year’s resolutions, I’ve decided to compile a list of five feel-good habits. I started implementing them this year and they’ve had a pretty positive impact on my life so far.  Those are all things I intend to keep doing in 2019 so let’s say this is also a great way to take the pressure off. 1. On wellness and taking care: Taking care of yourself is a big…

    How to deal with being the bad guy in a toxic relationship.

A lot of you are probably already cringing at the remark thinking that between wars, global warming, social inequalities and many, many other issues, well, we’re obviously not making a great job at making it work.

    Dear Body: Can I have a word?

    When I think of the term “body image” or even “body positivity,” the first thing that comes to mind is bullying. From getting picked on in the schoolyard as a kid to the society expectations on our bodies as adults, our body image is too easily shaped by these forms of bullying. And soon enough, you start to adopt that bullying yourself. As an adult, I like to think I fully comprehend the meaning of body positivity. After all, it seems explicit enough: love your body. Yet there is still a struggle to embrace that love, and to accept my body as it is. Most days, I would say that…

    Celebration: A Fiction To Heal 2/5

    How to define yourself. You know that moment when you have to introduce yourself and everything you say feels like a very generic, not so accurate version of who you truly are in terms of personality, personal tastes, ambition and so on? This is what this video is about. It is about finding who you are as an individual among seven billion others on the planet and how you can define yourself in private so that you can introduce yourself to a stranger. Hey, before you go …   Do you ever wondered what the hell you’re doing with your life? I know this might sound a bit off-guard but…
