Your golden bike

Amsterdamse fiets

At Inspire me photograph we love to be inspired by food, travels, lifestyle and more creative things. This day it is all about your golden bike. Back in Amsterdam the bike is a gadget that everybody has. It is easy, gets you everywhere quick and keeps you active. It is the perfect sport without even noticing that you are doing your daily workout. Here in Berlin a bike is not a must have, but I see more bikes pop up everyday. To stay true to my roots in Amsterdam, I bought a bike right a way and coloured it gold, because with this colour I can find my bike easily anywhere. But the most important reason is that my bike is my daily workout without even noticing. It keeps me healthy and that counts as golden. So why not ride a bike instead of taking your car? It is less expensive and keeps you healthy and fit. Get inspired!

 

When life gives you lemons

Every day I hear people talk about health. It is the trend of being healthy and super fit. The only problem is lack of discipline and motivation. But with this simple solution you can make your day already very healthy! I am talking about a glass of water with fresh lemon juice squeezed in it. I can give you many reasons why you should drink it but the most important ones are:

1. It gives you an energy boost.
2. It promotes good digestion.
3. It stimulates elimination.
4. It gives your immune system a boost.
5. It helps detoxify the liver.
6. It helps you lose weight.
7. Better skin.
8. Hydration.

Convinced already?  Here is how you make a lemon juice yourself: Take one lemon and slice it in half, squeeze the juice into a glass of water and drink it first thing in the morning. And start breakfast after 20/30 minutes. If you are trying this for the first time, maybe begin with a quarter of a lemon and over several days, work your way up to half a lemon. And of course, you can also use a lime juice if that is your preference!

Sunday Run-day

What to do on Sunday? Even though Sunday is lovely as a lazy day, I do also like to get at least a little activity going on! And that means also a good workout. Sometimes fitness, other days I run through the Vondelpark in Amsterdam. Running outdoor for me is not only a good exercise, also a way to explore the city while being active. So when I am done with my workout, I can go for some drinks with friends at a new bar I just spotted. That makes this workout even more fun! And of course the benefits of running are very important for me. I feel energetic, my head will be clear of difficult thoughts and I am happy that I did get out for a run. I can tell you, sometimes you don’t have the energy to run as far as you wish, but at the end of the day: you did exercise that day and that feels great. Get inspired!
