Nepal // Bardia National Park The unexpected side of the country

Nepal is known as one of the greatest hiking destinations in the world, thanks to its stunning natural beauty – and righteously so. But there is more to Nepal than the mighty Himalayas. For a completely different type of adventure, head far off the beaten trail to the western part of the country. It takes a long, bumpy bus ride on roads full of potholes to get there, but Bardia National Park is worth the effort. Although only 238 km from Pokhara, it’s like entering a whole different country.

Traveling Slow Benefits You, Local Communities and the Environment

We have a tendency to go about traveling as we go about our busy daily lives: frantically ticking off our to-do list to make sure we make the most of our time – and have a lot of Instagrammable pictures to show for it. But more and more people are realizing that making the best of our time might mean something completely different: it requires us to slow down, so we can really appreciate the places we visit. The best part: while traveling slow gives us a more meaningful experience, it also maximizes benefits for local communities and the environment. With traveling slow, everybody wins.

A long line of people dressed in all white formed a silent procession through the forest. Putting one foot in front of the other slowly and carefully, no one made a sound. It was an impressive sight–one that continues to fill me with awe. If you would have told me a few years ago that I would be part of this line, I might have laughed. I was as down to earth as it gets. Yet here I was: in a Buddhist monastery amidst the hills of northern Thailand participating in a walking meditation.

Menstrual Moon Cups Are Revolutionizing Traveling and Your Period

Every woman experiences her period differently, but most would agree that it’s at least somewhat of a hassle. Luckily, menstrual cups are here to make life – at least during that time of the month – easier. Menstrual cups have been around since the 1930s, but have long been an unknown and relatively unpopular menstrual product. Now, more and more women are discovering the benefits of menstrual cups – and many of them swear by it and vow to never go back to pads or tampons. I’m one of them.

The Throw-Away Mentality Has to Go

Recently I visited Bunaken Island and I was amazed by the marine life around the shores of this island. After some days of marvelling at the beauty of nature I returned to Manado, and to my shock and terror witnessed the boat literally dodging piles of trash floating in the ocean. This trash comes from Manado and partly ends up in Bunaken, where it pollutes the corals and disturbs the marine life. What a disillusion - yet another paradise is threatened with extinction…

Minder zweten door anders te eten

Zit je in een Indiaas restaurant van je favoriete curry te smullen en breek het zweet je uit? Dat is niet zo vreemd. Als je om je heen kijkt zul je zien dat ook andere gasten het zweet op hun voorhoofd hebben staan. Wat jij daar ervaart en met eigen ogen ziet is dat voeding invloed heeft op hoeveel je zweet. En dat geldt niet alleen voor pittig eten: ook andere voedingsmiddelen kunnen ervoor zorgen dat je meer (of juist minder) gaat zweten. Als je veel zweet is het dus de moeite waard je dieet eens kritisch onder de loep te nemen.

De psychologische impact van overmatig zweten: hoe zweten je zelfvertrouwen beïnvloedt

Hoewel zweten op zichzelf geen kwaad kan, kan overmatig zweten grote negatieve gevolgen hebben. Die gevolgen zijn vaak veel ernstiger dan buitenstaanders of artsen in de gaten hebben.

Niet zo vreemd dus, dat mensen die excessief zweten vaak ook psychologische klachten ontwikkelen.
