Female entitlement

October 12, 2021

How can we boost our confidence? 

Genuine female empowerment is when we feel entitled to say yes to ourselves. 

Entitled to set boundaries for our personal well-being. 

There’s nothing more sexy and seductive than a woman that knows what she wants, self-confident and able to play with all her feminine style energy. 

 

It’s the perfect combination of body and soul. 

The skin is the boundary to the outside world. It sets boundaries between the self and the other. Our skin reflects our mental state, our face the most important feature of our body. Any child recognizes the human face, as one of the fist aspects in life. 

The face a reflection of our sense of self. Treating it with care, respect, and genuine interest for its incredible ability to make us feel empowered and confident every day, is a skill and power we have within ourselves. That’s where a solid foundation of skincare and makeup comes in.

Conversation with Public Health Prof. Xu Biao

October 12, 2021

Today's episode is a conversation with my mentor and female professor in public health at Fudan University and Karolinska Institute, Prof. Xu Biao. She shared her insights in the development of women in China, the impact of the one child policy on gender equality, as well as her strong believe that women and men are intellectually equal. Prof. Xu Biao said: “Women being more attractive, when intellectually free.” She also emphasized that women should feel confident dressing feminine, no need to act like men. We’re unique for how we are as women, with all the facettes of it.

Burnout: A Human Condition

September 7, 2021

How many people don’t we know, if we haven’t experienced the feeling ourselves, who share symptoms of burn out? It’s a place of complete exhaustion, a feeling of being overwhelmed by the most simple task at hand. Burn out is experienced both mentally and physically. Often it’s a depressed feeling, a lack of energy, lethargy, accompanied with very low self-esteem, caused by exhausted self-destructive thoughts. 

 

How do we navigate through and out of a burnout? 

Causes of burn out can be many. Seeking help before it’s too late won’t hurt. It’s highly recommended to talk to a professional, if you experience feelings of burnout. 

 

Finding time for oneself is often an issue, lack of it in many cases leads to exhaustion. 

Difficulties in setting boundaries another. 

Conflicts and tension at home or in a work environment can trigger a person to the edge. 

 

How to prevent:

  • Say no before it’s too late.
  • Set boundaries for yourself and others.
  • Stay physically and socially active.
  • Be mindful of your sleep rhythm.
  • Take one step at a time.
  • Seek professional help.

Step up and take space: It’s a women’s world

September 7, 2021

Over the years, I felt hmm should I really show my female side at work, in public? Nja, not so much! I never liked the idea to be reduced just to the clothes I’ve been wearing, the look. I’ve focussed on the competitive side, the hardworking, dedicated part in me and had that to become the center of my being. My love for the beauty of things, fashion, jewellery, my softer, more vulnerable part was put aside. 

This year, I’ve launched UNE SUR CENT, my own company emphasizing female empowerment, intellectual freedom, and the opportunity to choose to maintain a career. All women can and are entitled to have it all. Be feminine and make an impact on the global scene. Combining our passion for intellectual freedom with feminine details, jewellery, and clothes. Highlight the female power. 

 

This weeks conversation with the Prada Stockholm and London female leaders emphasized my vision and goal with UNE SUR CENT. Proud to make an impact and initiate change. It’s a women’s world.

Career and Performance Assessments

August 3, 2021

Working with school placement assessments since over 10 years provided me soo much joy. The families I’ve encountered over the years shared my initial self-trial. The tests knew me better than I knew myself! Parents over the years shared their assessment experience, telling me that they’ve recognised their child to 99% in the reports provided by me. It’s such a wonderful endeavour to be able to share a child’s strength with the parents and give an objective interpretation of feelings and thoughts parents and children themselves had for a long time. It’s simply magic, a real endorphin booster. Completing an assessment isn’t only beneficial for young children and adolescents, it’s a great opportunity for adults figuring out their next career step or personal life trajectory. It’s a reassuring process, often stirring up new ideas, encouraging one to step out of one’s comfort zone, on to new adventures. 

From research we know, that personality is rather stable over life, yet with commitment and dedication, we can change our personality traits, which we favour less about ourselves. I. e. someone with low levels of dutifulness and self-discipline, can improve their level of the former, by continuously working on these areas. The more we know about who we are, the better we can improve our selves and excel our performance. Our personality has a greater impact on our academic and career success than our IQ, since motivation, dutifulness, and achievement striving are essential to get ahead in life. People with GRIT, the latest definition of consciousness will be successful either way. The inner flame of motivation, the intrinsic motivation, is the driving force to success.

One, two or three children? The Chinese Child Policy Shift

August 3, 2021

The Chinese child policy and its aftermath. Research insights from the one, to the two, to the three child policy. 

Living in Shanghai during the one child policy and initiating my research in Shanghai 2015, right at the shift to the two child policy, I’ve always been fascinated by the impact of the policy on women’s lives. From an individual, family setting, societal, and national perspective. A public health, women’s health, psychological, and economical perspective. 

As long as education is immensely competitive, expensive, and women’s career prospects not improved after more than one child, the situation of the number of children per family won’t change. China’s number of children per family continued to drop, after an initial small rise, following the implementation of the two child policy. Disregarding the governments relaxation of the child policy, allowing families to have three children. Without government massive incentives, families won’t consider multiple children. If China’s families won’t have more children, the age gap will increase and the growth of the economy is in severe danger. Having a massively increasing aging population, a very low retirement age, and a whole generation of single children, the pressure on the current families in reproductive age is immense. China is facing a challenge many middle income countries are encountering, however with a higher pace, as a consequence of the one child policy. It remains a big question mark how China will counter this major threat to its economic growth.

Vacation mode

August 3, 2021

Now even more than ever, it’s important to set up your out-of-office notification. And yes, do so prior to taking off for vacation.  

The pandemic had both down and upsides in the corporate world. Especially, the topic of work-life balance has been challenged. The work environment moved into people’s homes, the division of work and private life fused. People’s mental load increased, due to a lack of boundaries between the two lives: work and private life. People increased their working hours and productivity has been rising, counterintuitively to what companies were afraid to happen. The dip in productivity didn’t occur, but employees more and more describe a fatigue of digital work, home office, lack of physical connection with colleagues, and a sense of being on 24/7. No proper physical distinction of spaces: work vs. home. 

 

Steps to take:

  • Set boundaries
  • Don’t forget your out-of-office notification
  • Divide your home to clear work vs. living space 
  • Read emails during specifically set times and not before going to bed
  • Return to the office gradually

Fashion, sophistication, and female power

July 29, 2021

Fashion is art in a self-expressed way. Women around the world dress differently to express their heritage, sense of community, and unique selves. Wearing clothes is a statement of strength and power, when chosen wisely and in line with the own persona. Investing in high quality pieces that last many seasons is both a pleasure to wear and a great contribution to the environment.

Dress for success

Dress in outfits

Create your personal uniforms 

Less is more

Invest in statement pieces

Play with accessories

Skip trends, focus on your personal preferences
