What is this about?
This blog contains articles I wrote out of my personal interest in the topics. It is a way for me to organise my thoughts. It is in no way offered as medical or psychological advice. If you experience medical or psychological complaints, please consult a doctor or therapist in your area.
As I write I found that my interests congregate in three main areas:
Wellness and selfcare
As they say, it takes one to know one. I took up studying psychology out of my personal interest. I wanted to understand the people surrounding me better, but as a survivor of complex PTSD, I also wanted to understand myself a bit better. In my articles I write about the things I’ve discovered, what helped me and what did not. My Master’s Thesis in Psychology (MSc) looks into the question whether sensory-processing sensitivity (SPS), also known highly sensitive (HSP) is a vulnerability factor or a individual resource in the workplace. For questions about this topic and my thesis, you can contact me through the contact form on my site.
I’ve been into environmentalism and planet-friendly behaviour as long as I can remember. I’m trying out new ways to reduce my carbon footprint and try out whatever comes on the market to help me with that. I will share my experiences, tips and tricks. I occasionally review products.
The fun things in life: friends, fun and fantasy
One shouldn’t take themselves too seriously, sometimes it’s also time to have fun with friends, relax and share joy. I love to cook, bake my own bread and cake, do some crafting on the side and when there is time left, I also enjoy good fantasy and SF-themed movies and TV series, travel around in Europe, mostly by train.
