Über delicious Bircher Müesli recipe

Idea

I have to start with announcing that Bircher Müesli is über delicious! Oh, and it’s healthy too! Two birds, one stone. Bircher Müesli was invented around 1900 by Swiss physician Maximilian Bircher-Brenner for his patients. He was born in Aarau which is about one hour driving from my apartment. He promoted eating at least 50% row food on a daily basis / 100% raw food for people with poor health. He was a pioneer in Europe thinking that food can be used to keep the body healthy rather than just satisfying hunger.
He was promoting early bedtime, physical training and garden work to his patients. Also each meal began with a small dish of Müesli. Patients had to skip alcohol, coffee, chocolate and tobacco while they were treated by him. He suggested sun bathing, cold showers and a harmony between people and nature.

Flow

Idea

The flow is a concept of the hungarian Milhály Csikszentmihályi. He interviewed many people about their jobs and everyday activities and ask them to write down about ten times a day what they are doing and how they are feeling. Some of the timing for the questions was random.
If you’ve ever felt like time is just flying by, you were probably in the state of flow. Flow is a highly focused state in which you focus on one topic and ignore everything else. Your task can be quite simple ie. there was a worker who had to put together parts as soon as possible, so the worker challenged himself to be as quick and efficient as possible. This way he was focused, he was in the flow and the enjoyed what he was doing.

Listen to music, really

Idea

I bet you haven’t really listened to any music recently. I mean: LISTEN. Start a CD, sit down, and just enjoy until the CD ends. I’m talking about this kind of listening. The real one. Everything else is mostly unnecessary and is just background noise. Now I don’t say you should never listen to music in the background, just keep in mind that 90% music on the most radio channels is crap. We all know this. So if you have the chance, do yourself a favour and switch off the bad music and optionally switch on good music. Recently I rather switch off music while driving, or listen to podcasts.

How to improve your life and be happier 2.

Wake up early
This speaks for itself. You can get a lot more done in the morning hours. I wake up between 6:30 and 7:00 at 5:30. I’m a lot more productive before work and can get many things done in a short time. If you have to work later, you’ll have a time limit too, which will help you focus more.

Wake up early = go to bed early. If you don’t get enough sleep, you’ll hardly be really focused. I go to sleep around 22:00 – 22:30.

Sleeping is extremely important. Watch the following videos to find out why.

How to build new habits easily

Goal:
Would you like to learn a new language, start drawing, writing or train a lot? There are some simple ways to do it and to motivate yourself. According to studies it takes about 28 days to develop a new habit. So follow me and I’ll show you how.

How:
First step is to define your goal. Remember: you don’t have to start big. You can start with setting a simple goal: train 15 minutes a day. Once you have a goal you should schedule it. What is the ideal time to do it? If you don’t have time? Wake up 15 minutes earlier. Boom, you have time now.

Method 1: Calendar reminder
The simplest method is to use your phone’s calendar or the calendar on your desk and add this new habit and a reminder. Simple as that. Be disciplined, and always do the task, regardless if you’re doing something else at the moment. If no one’s health is in danger, stick to your plan.
