This week’s blog is going to be different. It’s going to be about beers, the brew process and a little background information. After starting to work at a local brewery in Maastricht, de Maastrichter Maltezer, I started to discover more and more about this fascinating drink. If you don’t like beers or if you aren’t interested in beers whatsoever, I would recommend you not to read it. But if you want to impress your mates in the pub with some nice fun facts, a little knowledge and some deeper understanding please continue reading. Do you know where the word pub originally comes from? I bet you don’t. Looking for other fun facts? Continue reading and you will find out…!
Curiosity. According to the Dictionary it means: ‘a strong desire to know or learn something.’ Or ‘an unusual or interesting object or fact’. A word we probably all know or have heard of. We often talk about ‘having a curious mind-set’, or ‘improving our curiosity’. But what does curiosity mean to you? What are the moments when you experience this feeling we call curiosity? And what does that feeling do to you? How can we feel so different and funny when we get curious? So many questions I am fascinated by. My curiosity particularly comes up when I am living in a new country. However, after realising I missed this special, exciting feeling, I decided to look for it more often. Curious to find out what I did to create curiosity, how I try to train it and why I think it’s important? Find it out below!
Sitting alongside naked people in an overheated (wooden) room with a stove in the middle doesn’t sound exciting if you put it like that. If you add the fact that you are sweating balls, it will probably even get worse. However, after doing an exchange program in Finland for four months I fell in love with saunas. I went from being totally insecure when being naked to feeling completely freed when being naked in a sauna. Find out what the benefits are of going into a sauna, how I fell in love with the sauna culture and why I think everyone should give it a try!
We probably all know the feeling. The feeling of getting lost in thought. “Should I do this?” “Yeah I should, but what if…” “Or what if…” “Or maybe…”. There are thousands of examples of overthinking. Most people overthink from time to time, resulting in being indecisive and feeling terrible. Or at least that’s how I feel, if you ask me. But what is overthinking and what does it do with you? How does it affect me and how do I try to get rid of it? Why is it the worst enemy? Find it all out below in this week’s blog about overthinking!
