Find Peace with noise canceling headphones

I used to fly a lot all over the world, and I used to be so tired upon arrival. Well, those days were over when I found a solution: I found Peace with noise canceling headphones.

Bose noise cancelling head phones

There are many different options for noise cancelling headphones, But I got a pair of Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones. And ever since I use them on a flight, I am so much more relaxed and fit when I arrive in a new time zone.

Taking care of your health

I always eat healthy, (carrots with vitamin D to avoid a jetlag), drink lots of water, and sleep on a plane to avoid a major jetlag. But with noise cancellation headphones I sleep much better, as you don't hear your surroundings anymore: It's silent! The noise of the running engines mid-flight is pretty loud. I am always happy to arrive safe, but if I can do it while feeling great, that is even better. With these headphones on, it totally channels out the outside world. Listening to the movie is so nice now, and sleeping is quiet...

Noise cancelling headphones to heal yourself

Not only does it give you a great sound when watching a movie or listening to music, it also helps your brain relax. I have a feeling that a brain that gets overstimulated with sounds or visuals can make you tired. I realized this when my health deteriorated a few years ago, when I was burned out. Any stimulation, whether it was noises or daylight was too much for me and would totally knock me out. I would spent days on end inside my home and even in bed to rest. I started wearing my noise cancellation headphones to find some peace and quiet when things got too loud, and I think that they were part of my healing. My brain was not stimulated by sounds anymore. Now I advice people who suffer from a burnout or who are sensitive to lights and sounds to try to wear these headphones to give their brain a rest. So they are able to deal with daily life if loud noises are present. Because you maybe won't notice it, but your brain will and it will take away your energy to deal with it. A lot of people experience relief and feel more energy to function in their daily lives.

An investment in your health

The noise cancelling headphones are not cheap, but an investment in a quiet and peaceful life.

Healthy snacks on the GO!

I've been asked a lot what I do to avoid unhealthy eating habits , so this article is dedicated to that. Some basic actions can really save your day!

Everywhere I go, I try to look for new places where I can find exciting organic food options. Also I go for greener options as much as I can, re using plastic and paper bags or water bottles for example - and always manage my diet to be the best as possible in the most different situations.

Airplane Food

I don't like how plane food tastes and how it makes you feel bloated - so I've found a solution for it: always pack a few healthy snacks and a nice home made meal to eat on the plane...

I spend so much time in airports and airplanes that if I don't take proper care, I will end up eating something not good for me. The first time I made my own bowl with plenty of healthy food I felt much more vitality and energy to handle those never ending 10 hours seated on a plane. Everyone should try it! No shame! Even the plane staff helped me out heating the meal, and there it goes a tip if you wanna do the same: take an aluminum bowl to make it easier, then ask someone to heat for you just the way they do it with regular food they serve it.

Snacks at work

Sometimes at work, snacks before or after lunch time, are not nutritious enough to help me get going through my day of hard work. So again I've found a solution. I ALWAYS take with me energy protein bars, nuts and other organic healthy snacks in little bowls that fit in my bag. I will never go to work unprepared, because we never know what's for breakfast and lunch. I'm known by stylists and beauty artists for doing it ( they usually sees me sneaking in my purse ), they call me "smart girl" and I have the pleasure to share my treats with them.

These are a few simple things you could integrate in to your routine, or if you don't have a routine (in my case).  You just need to think ahead of all difficult situations you're gonna be dealing with, so you are prepared for everything!

Follow these tips on a daily basis:

  • Try not to stay more than 3 hours without eating, ALWAYS have some good snacks with you, otherwise will won't even notice that it's been hours since you bite something.
  • Drink water! sometimes your body will trick you, so you might think you're hungry and would end up cheating with bad snacks, when your body it's JUST thirsty !
  • If you don't exercise that much ( or as much as you'd like to ); always goes for smart choices: stairs instead of elevators, go walking or biking to work  - do not ever lose a chance of moving your body!

Stay healthy!
