Since we moved into our own apartment in October, we really dedicated ourselves to live a healthier lifestyle. That included subscribing to the gym nearby and going at least 3 times a week. But the main change we made I feel, was in our eating habits. I really feel that we have become more organised: we menu prep every week before going grocery shopping, and I have to say one of my main source of inspiration for healthy recipes is Pinterest (you can go and check my Pinterest boards here).

I don’t know about you but music always had a huge impact on my mood and especially on my motivation state. On Friday night, while I was on my way home from work, I watched a very interesting and inspiring video from Lily Like where she was talking about motivation and how to keep motivated (click here to watch it!). And I thought to myself: what is the one thing that gives me that extra push when my head, mind and body just give me a big no-no? And obviously the answer was music. No matter what I aim at achieving. These days as I am heading more and more to the gym (#FitterNovember yay!) and also trying to finish writing my master thesis, and music is really the motivating factor that helps me go the extra mile.
