every year towards the end of it I want to remind you that if you like my work, you can help financing this newsletter by giving a contribution. I want to say thank you to everyone here who reads or supports this project.

This year has been challenging for many. For me, it definitely was. Thankfully, I made a very good decision three years ago that enables me to be outside in nature most of the days. It helps me a lot dealing with the many challenges that are in everyone’s heads right now. Especially now as a father of a young child, it’s not always easy to stay positive, to not be stressed out or discuss, talk about certain topics all the time. But nature has helped me, my child has helped me, meditation and focusing on my own opinion, on my own body, on my own health helps me staying sane. A big reveal was during my Covid infection: Once I realised how “pre-informed” I was about the disease, I stripped out this bias and listened to my body instead, my health improved next day and recovery was very quick from then on while it stalled over some days before. I share this because I think it’s very important to listen to yourself, to keep track on your own health instead of being drawn down by everyday TV shows that don’t even offer any solution but only share how bad everything is.

My wish for the future is to empower you to be your own you. You already have the ability, now to find out how to enable it. It may not be the easiest but probably worth it.

There’s a new year coming and I’d love to see that more people will trust their own mind and body again and work towards this goal. Read you next year!






Go beyond…

I hope you’re doing fine and have a way to stay positive, find your way to make an impact and help build a better society, better friendships and make our world a little better.
