From Sad To Happy

Life can be so strange. Two days ago I felt like I coudln’t handle my life anymore. I had a huge panik attack and I felt like I hade to quite my job and I coudln’t work anymore. Never ever again. At least this job I’ve been doing since 3 years. Today however I feel like the most happiest girl in the world. What changed?

The day I had this huge panik attack I’ve taken a day off. I coudln’t go to work. I thought I coudln’t handle anything on this day. And I sleept for so many houres, my husband had to wake my up a few times to see if I was alive. The only thing I’ve done was a plan for the next day. I’ve asked myself what I had to do, to feel better at work. And all things ended up on this list.

The day after I went back to work. I admit I had another panik attack but not as bad as the day befor. But my plan helped me trought the day. Step by step I worked through my plan with all the task I had to finish. And even if had to do the last task at home because I forgot it, everything went well.

Only now I’m writting down this experience I’m realizing how important it is to have a plan. A plan for the future. For the next month, days or even for the next few hours. Especially for me having panik attacks and anxiety issues having a plan seems to be everything. It helped me to not think about what could be, but to focus on what I have to do. Step by step.

I had so much new years resolution and I believe this one should also be on that list: At work I need a to do list and a plan for every bigger task. This way I can handle everything day by day without feeling overwhelmed by hugness, importance or even (policial) impact.

Do all this things I’ve said do make any sense to you? Have you ever had any panick attacs or anxiety issues? What do you do to handle it?

Relaxing Saturday…

from: quotesgram.com

This week I was so busy working I had no free time at all. This was the reason, to just relax on Saturday especially because my husband wasn’t at home because of working reasons. So I decided to have a relaxing day.

 

 

 

  1. First I had a looong sleep
    For a sleep monkey like me it’s impossible to get enough sleep during a working week, so I enjoy it much more on saturday and sunday.
  2. A cold shower
    There is nothing better as a cold shower to get awake after a long sleep.
  3. A good coffee
    In the meanwhile this is kind of a ritual on a saturday morning, to go to a coffeehouse and get a proper coffee with my whole family. This is what I call quality time.
  4. City tour
    Even if on saturday the city is full of people, it is a must to walk through the city, doing some shopping and enjoying the fresh air. Depending on my mood I also like to spend time at the local library and finde sone new stuff to read or to find some new cooking books.
  5. Getting another bunch of sleep
    Sleeping is always a good idea. It doesn’t matter how much I sleep in the night. On saturday I need always another few hours of extra sleep.
  6. Reading a good book
    This is something I have no time during workweek. So I enjoy it much more on the weekend.
  7. Enjoying my balkony
    On summer days there is nothing better to enjoy the sun. On rainy and cold days I enjoy the fresh air, even if I have to wear enough clothes so I do not freeze.
  8. Eating ice cream
    There is nothing more to say! Ice cream and TV in the evening are always a good idea.
  9. Plan our next trip
    I love new adventures and to be on the road. So I never stop to plan the next trip despite where and how long the trip will be.

What do you do to relax and calm down from a hard working week?

Les Wagons Or The Uetlibergbahn

If there is something I like the same like traveling around the world is to discover new spots. So it was this week at the Sulzerareal. The Suzlerareal is one of my favorite places in Winterthur. Here you literally feel the history of Winterthur with all the little corners where the production facility of Sulzer stand still. One of this little corner in this area, near the railroad is called “Les Wagons”. Here you can find two old wagon of the Üetlibergbahn which has been covered into a bar / Restaurant.

This place is like a little place of heaven, where once a week you can have dinner. But there is a deal you have to accept eating here. The only thing about the dinner you will get to know is the topic of a four gang menu. The rest will be a surprise. So for example there is a Toscana, a Coffee or a Superfood eventing. What do you think? Should I accept the challenge and get a dinner at Les Wagons?

Share Your Challenge – Sometimes I Need A New Start

As much as I love blogging, my life was quite busy the last few year. Ok sometimes it was busy sometimes I only enjoyed the time I had nothing to do. But after my husband has irregular working hours I decided to restart my little hobby. And even if it will be enough hard to start blogging on a regular basis, I decided to start blogging in english. So I hope you will be enough patient 😉

What is your challenge which you have imposed on yourself? It would be pleasure for me to read your challenge!

The Most Beautiful Lake In Switzerland

Even if we return only I few weeks ago from our holiday in greece. My husband and I decided to go for a weekend in the alps. It was a quite spontaneous trip, so it came only to a decision on saturday morning, as my husband arrived from work. We packed a few things and started our trip even we hadn’t any reservation for a hotel.

Looking backwards it was the best decision in a while. Arriving in Flims we stopped at the first hotel and decided to stay for a night. Normally I search for hours befor I even think about to book a hotel. But the Hotel Chesa had such cute rooms, so the decision was quite easy for us.

Saturday we spend in the alps, because of the world heritage “Tektonikarena Sardona”. As much luck we had with the hotel as much bad luck we had with our hiking route. Even if the alps are wonderful it was such a pain to hiking down from Sardona back to Flims. So there is one big thing we learn after this tour: To never ever do a tour without to inform us befor we start. I had never such pain in my knees that I have to cry!

But at least sunday was such a beautiful day which we spend at the “Caumasee”. And once more I pushed myself to the limits which makes me feels specially proud. I had a swim in the lake even if the lake was freaking cold. But hell it was one of the most beautiful days and most refreshing swim since a very long while!

I love this days! #enjoingsummer #flims #caumasee #graubünden #switzerland #swisssummer

Desire To Achieve

Quelle: Brainy Quote

In der heutigen Zeit wo der Konkurrenzkampf überall immer grösser wird, ist es manchmal gar nicht so einfach, sich auf sich selbst zu fokussieren.

Eine weitere Lektion, die ich wohl noch lernen muss.
Mich wieder vermehrt auf mich selbst zu konzentireren und auf das, was ich erreichen möchte. Meine Träume und meine Ziele nicht aus den Augen verlieren und verwirklichen und nicht nur Dinge tun um besser als die Anderen zu sein.

Kennt Ihr das Problem, immer wieder von diesem Konkurenzkampf der überall gehegt und gepflegt wird, getrieben zu sein?
