mindset to reach your goals

This post is sponsored by adidas. Although I was compensated for writing the article, all content and ideas are my own. Autumn is the perfect time of the year to reset your goals. Kids are going back to school and you fall back into a normal routine after the summer holidays. You might also realize that there are only 4 more months before the end of the year and your goals have been long forgotten. If you want to commit to giving it a good go this time, I’m cheering for you. And not only that, but I’ll give you my formula for creating changeRead More →

The self coaching model blog image

A few months ago I discovered The Life Coach School podcast and its host, Brooke Castillo. I carefully listened for a while, just processing the information passively. She talks about weight loss, relationships, business and pretty much any topic you can think of. Things started to make sense and I started to apply what Brooke was teaching. My results so far? My anxiety has decreased and I’m finally losing weight in a sustainable way, not by dieting but by learning how to feel my feelings instead of eating them. Here’s a quick overview of the model and a few examples from what I dealt withRead More →

2019 reading list

It’s that time of the year. In between parties and mince pies, you reflect on how 2018 went and you plan 2019 to be the best year ever. I do it too. I’m not so crazy about new year goals as I used to be, but that’s only because I made it a habit to not wait for the beginning of the year or the month to start working on something. However, 2019 is also the year that I’ll start as fully self-employed, so I do have projects and goals that I’m planning at the moment. For this post, I’ll stay away from goals, butRead More →

ways to give back blog image

This post is sponsored by adidas. Although they provided the topic, all my ideas are mine, as usual. Are you one of those people who say, at least once a day in random conversations, “I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas”? Well, I am. Because I remember last year’s holidays like they happened yesterday. A lot has changed since, but there’s one thing that doesn’t change as the years go by. Come the holidays, everyone has a burning desire to give back. We’re closer to our families, we give and receive gifts, and we want to make a difference in the lives of those that areRead More →

favourite youtube channels

Because you loved the posts in the “Meet my heroes” series, I’m back with a new one! If you missed the first two, here they are: Best podcasts to listen to on the go Best personal finance books Another one of my favourite ways to learn new things, apart from reading and listening to audio, is video! I find it easier to process information if it’s accompanied by images and sometimes more personal if the person speaking is in front of the camera. And I think you’ll agree with me when I say that life is a bit easier if the video is free. Yes,Read More →

best podcasts blog title

Here on Green Zen Fit, I’m usually the one that gives advice or offers inspiration. But have you ever wondered who inspires me?! I decided to share with you what I listen to, what YouTube channels I follow, what blogs I read and the books that changed my life in a mini-series called “Meet my heroes”. I’ll start with podcasts. I love them. Whether you’re commuting to work, doing a long easy run or just chilling at the beach, podcasts are one of the best ways to consume information. They are hands-free and don’t require you to look at a screen. And they can beRead More →

work-life balance part 2

This is a 3 part series on work-life balance. Welcome to Week 2! In week 1 (go here if you haven’t had the chance to read it yet), I talked about how to make sure you have the right job for you. If you’re so unhappy that every Monday morning you need to be pushed out the door (I’ve been there!), go ahead and check it out. Not everyone gets to do something that they’re passionate about or a job that can be considered meaningful and full of purpose; but if it’s sucking the life out of you, it’s wrong! Work-life balance on your terms.Read More →

work life balance blog title

Here’s something about work-life balance: you don’t talk about work-life balance unless you don’t have it. So if you ever mention it to your partner, friend or manager, this post is for you. Hi. I’m Andreea. I haven’t been stressed at work since 2013. Six years ago I was doing what any 24y old does – climbing the ladder. I had a lead position in a big corporation, working around 10 hours a day and taking meetings in my pyjamas at 5 am. But I had no other responsibilities, so working my ass off was ok, even if I was stressed and crying a lot. MyRead More →

OrganiCup review blog title

OrganiCup is offering a free cup to one Green Zen Fit reader, so check out the post to know more! This week was World Environment Day, so I decided to talk about something that can have a positive impact on our planet. In August 2016, I declared myself a minimalist. Part of the decision was for the environment, but a big part was for my own sake. I wanted to have more space, to spend less money and less time on activities that don’t bring value to my life. One of the first things I did was replace disposable items with reusable ones. Think aboutRead More →
