Wanna be social?

[This is my current temporary working from home setup 🌈] A few weeks back, I thought everything would be alright, that our world was prepared to deal with such a situation in an efficient and timely manner. ⠀
⠀
I wasn’t worried at all.⠀
⠀
With the exponential spread of the virus and all subsequent lockdowns, quarantine and self-isolations measures in place now, I understand the gravity of the situation, accepted that I was wrong, and take COVID-19 very seriously. And I understand that it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.⠀
⠀
At first I felt like the Coronavirus or SARS-CoV-2 to be exact wasn’t something affecting me personally. I fought off all worries and anxious moments until I couldn’t do it anymore.⠀
⠀
I’m worried and scared. I’m worried about my family, especially my mum, I’m worried about my friends and their families. I’m worried because we’re trapped in our own apartment, feeling like outlaws when leaving once a week for grocery shopping. I’m worried about the global economy and how this shitty situation affects the poorest people the most.⠀
⠀
I understand that I can’t exclude myself, that I’m not a passive bystander to some tragic accident. I’m as much a part of this stressful time as anyone else around the globe and am doing the bare minimum of my bit by #stayingathome like (hopefully) billions of other people.⠀
⠀
The reason I’m writing this post is that I feel helpless and anxious but these feelings won’t help anyone. Researching and writing are two things I’m good at. So the least I can do I figured to hopefully help a few people (and myself) is to put my strengths to work and to provide a list of resources on how to improve the limiting and isolating situation of being quarantined.

I'm gonna share a secret with you now. There's one thing that's a high road to happiness.

Do you know which one I mean?

It's being humble.

Meaning: Remaining grounded, being present and being curious. Not taking anything for granted, but enjoying the little things in life (our world is so precious) and expressing gratitude.

Ok, sounds great... but how can you incorporate that into your life? That's really easy, my friend.

A few examples how to be more humble:

Maybe you're somebody, who's already successful and achieved her/his goals: Staying humble means then to not forget where you're coming from, how much hard work you put into your success and not feeling the need to brag about it, but helping others to succeed.

Maybe you're someone just starting out: I often hear the term 'Fake it until you make it', however, my belief is that people are more likely to help and support you, if you're open about your modest beginnings and true to yourself (and others), instead of faking it.

Maybe you're someone who's privileged (economically, culturally, by education...): never forget that you're a human being as everybody else and that there are others out there less lucky than you. No need to be arrogant. Be kind and humble.

Weekly Nuggets of Wisdom

Here's this week's list of my favorite inspiration to read, listen to, watch and do to be more humble in our everyday life - enjoy!

I recommend...

...reading:

 How Humility Will Make You the Greatest Person Ever. An article about why humility might well be the mother of all virtues.

...listening to:

 What A Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong. Such a beautiful classy song full of gratitude. Perfect for sitting on the couch with a cup of tea and watching outside the window... regardless of the weather.

...watching:

 Raymond Tang: Be humble & and other lessons from the philosophy of water. A great TED Talk about how to be more like water and how this could change your life for the better (I know, that sounds weird. But trust me, those are 10 minutes well spent).

...doing:

  1. Ask more questions. Especially, if you don't know the answers. Simply say so and see it as an opportunity to learn something new. It takes humility to show, what you don't know instead of what you do. We're all lifelong students.
  2. Go outside, spend some time in the open and be in awe. Nature grounds you. Breathe the fresh air in the forest. Sit at a coast or beach and stare at the horizon. Gaze into the stars. Stand on top of a sand dune (my personal favorite). Whatever you do, you'll recognize immediately that you're not the hub of the universe. We're nothing compared to the wonders of our world.

What an amazing gift idea 😻 got these super soft reusable makeup pads from my friend @rohinibajekal and love them so much 😭❤️⠀
⠀
I use round cotton pads a lot to for my skincare routine and always felt guilty for the amount of trash I produced daily due to that 😒⠀
⠀
Watched a few DIY tutorials on how to sew your own makeup pads and always pushed it aside as a project for "a day I'd have time to do that" (aka for sure not anytime soon).⠀
⠀
Therefore, I'm so grateful, that Rohini brought me these from London 😍 such a cute surprise!⠀
⠀
And I can either wash them by hand or throw them into the washing machine in a little laundry bag to wash with similar stuff 💯⠀
⠀
Definitely a gift idea I will "steal" for the holidays 😻🎄🎁🎅🏽⠀

Me 10 or 15 years ago: I hope they like me 🙏🏽 how can I make them like me? Am I funny enough? Should I be funnier? Pleaaaase like me and approve of me 😩🥺⠀

Me today: Is this "event" and people there worth my time and energy? Will it be fun and a positive experience? Are there people I wanna see and surround myself with? 🙌🏽💥⠀

New year, same food 😂

The last two weeks of 2018 were filled with way too much food (all super yum but not really nutritious) 😅🍲🍟🎂🍪 It's time consuming and expensive (more than in Germany) to get organic veggies in Dubai, and not sustainable with nearly everything being imported - at least that's what I thought 🤔

Imagine my surprise when I did the research and found a good bunch of organic farms in the UAE with some pretty affordable veggie/fruit boxes, which they deliver to my door 😍💚 (I got mine from @greenheartorganicfarms and no this isn't a sponsored post). Bye-bye to wasting time driving around (it's a mess) and hello to finally cooking healthy, clean and much more sustainable again 🙌🏽💚😍 Inspired by @minimalistbaker's recipe for roasted rainbow veggies, here's last night's dinner 💚😍🥑🥕🥒🍠🍜 a plate full of yummy roasted rainbow treasures 💗🌈 How's your 2019 going so far? Are you a resolution person or not so much? 💞

  2. Go outside, spend some time in the open and be in awe. Nature grounds you. Breathe the fresh air in the forest. Sit at a coast or beach and stare at the horizon. Gaze into the stars. Stand on top of a sand dune (my personal favorite). Whatever you do, you'll recognize immediately that you're not the hub of the universe. We're nothing compared to the wonders of our world.

I'm gonna share a secret with you now. There's one thing that's a high road to happiness.

Do you know which one I mean?

It's being humble.

Meaning: Remaining grounded, being present and being curious. Not taking anything for granted, but enjoying the little things in life (our world is so precious) and expressing gratitude.

Ok, sounds great... but how can you incorporate that into your life? That's really easy, my friend.

A few examples how to be more humble:

Maybe you're somebody, who's already successful and achieved her/his goals: Staying humble means then to not forget where you're coming from, how much hard work you put into your success and not feeling the need to brag about it, but helping others to succeed.

Maybe you're someone just starting out: I often hear the term 'Fake it until you make it', however, my belief is that people are more likely to help and support you, if you're open about your modest beginnings and true to yourself (and others), instead of faking it.

Maybe you're someone who's privileged (economically, culturally, by education...): never forget that you're a human being as everybody else and that there are others out there less lucky than you. No need to be arrogant. Be kind and humble.

Weekly Nuggets of Wisdom

Here's this week's list of my favorite inspiration to read, listen to, watch and do to be more humble in our everyday life - enjoy!

I recommend...

...reading:

 How Humility Will Make You the Greatest Person Ever. An article about why humility might well be the mother of all virtues.

...listening to:

 What A Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong. Such a beautiful classy song full of gratitude. Perfect for sitting on the couch with a cup of tea and watching outside the window... regardless of the weather.

...watching:

 Raymond Tang: Be humble & and other lessons from the philosophy of water. A great TED Talk about how to be more like water and how this could change your life for the better (I know, that sounds weird. But trust me, those are 10 minutes well spent).

...doing:

  1. Ask more questions. Especially, if you don't know the answers. Simply say so and see it as an opportunity to learn something new. It takes humility to show, what you don't know instead of what you do. We're all lifelong students.

Want more visual inspo?

[This is my current temporary working from home setup 🌈] A few weeks back, I thought everything would be alright, that our world was prepared to deal with such a situation in an efficient and timely manner. ⠀
⠀
I wasn’t worried at all.⠀
⠀
With the exponential spread of the virus and all subsequent lockdowns, quarantine and self-isolations measures in place now, I understand the gravity of the situation, accepted that I was wrong, and take COVID-19 very seriously. And I understand that it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.⠀
⠀
At first I felt like the Coronavirus or SARS-CoV-2 to be exact wasn’t something affecting me personally. I fought off all worries and anxious moments until I couldn’t do it anymore.⠀
⠀
I’m worried and scared. I’m worried about my family, especially my mum, I’m worried about my friends and their families. I’m worried because we’re trapped in our own apartment, feeling like outlaws when leaving once a week for grocery shopping. I’m worried about the global economy and how this shitty situation affects the poorest people the most.⠀
⠀
I understand that I can’t exclude myself, that I’m not a passive bystander to some tragic accident. I’m as much a part of this stressful time as anyone else around the globe and am doing the bare minimum of my bit by #stayingathome like (hopefully) billions of other people.⠀
⠀
The reason I’m writing this post is that I feel helpless and anxious but these feelings won’t help anyone. Researching and writing are two things I’m good at. So the least I can do I figured to hopefully help a few people (and myself) is to put my strengths to work and to provide a list of resources on how to improve the limiting and isolating situation of being quarantined. Link to post in bio 🌈🙌🏽💕⠀
⠀

What an amazing gift idea 😻 got these super soft reusable makeup pads from my friend @rohinibajekal and love them so much 😭❤️⠀
⠀
I use round cotton pads a lot to for my skincare routine and always felt guilty for the amount of trash I produced daily due to that 😒⠀
⠀
Watched a few DIY tutorials on how to sew your own makeup pads and always pushed it aside as a project for "a day I'd have time to do that" (aka for sure not anytime soon).⠀
⠀
Therefore, I'm so grateful, that Rohini brought me these from London 😍 such a cute surprise!⠀
⠀
And I can either wash them by hand or throw them into the washing machine in a little laundry bag to wash with similar stuff 💯⠀
⠀
Definitely a gift idea I will "steal" for the holidays 😻🎄🎁🎅🏽⠀
⠀
