Your HappiNewsLetter – AUGUST –
AUGUST – Welcome to your HappiNewsLetter!
I am so happy to share with you some reflective topics that inspired me during the last months.
Check out as well what’s cooking for the following weeks.
A beautiful hot month to remind us to savor the holiday flair till it lasts. Soon it will be September, pumpkin season, Christmas and all that. But let’s take it slow for now, and think about the rest later.
As Pythagoras said: “The great science to live happily is to live in the present.”
How are you savoring your summer days?
Take good care, you are precious.

Sleep against Stress
What do you do when you’re deeply exhausted, stressed or about to burnout? We often tend to say: “I need to do this”, “I shouldn’t do that”… This actually creates more pressure and drains even more of your little energy. The key is to quit pushing and blaming yourself. Instead, slow down and rest. To rebuild your resilience, the first step is to get enough sleep. Taking care of your physical health also supports your mental health. With more mental space, you’ll slowly move into what you want. How much are you sleeping lately?
Happy Birthday Switzerland!
The Swiss National Day is proudly celebrated on August 1st. The date refers to a historic alliance concluded in 1291 by the three cantons of Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden. It resulted in the founding of the Swiss Confederation. We can wish Switzerland a Happy 731st Birthday! This day became a public holiday throughout Switzerland in 1993, after it was voted by referendum. The locals enjoy political speeches, bonfires, fireworks, but most importantly, lots of food, drinks and music in a festive atmosphere.
The Moon is Super
On August 11th, we could observe the last Super-Full-Moon of 2022. A Supermoon happens when the Moon is at its closest to Earth. This time, the Moon was only 360’000 km away! It can also appear up to 13% bigger and 30% brighter. Symbolically, the full Moon represents the highest energy and the learning of new things. Are you open to receive Super insights this month? Take the opportunity now, because the next Supermoon will happen on August 1st 2023, and the next time it will be that close will only be in 2034…
This month, let’s meet the CONTROLLER. This saboteur has a powerful energy and can get things done. But it’s an anxiety-based need to take charge and control situations. It makes you believe that you’re either in control or out of control, and that you’re doing others a favor by controlling everything. Even if you can get results this way, you usually end up feeling impatient, angry, resentful and even rejected.
Challenge of the month: Realize when you get impatient at others, or when you push to get things done your own way. Thank your Controller for wanting things to progress and ask him to come back later. From a place of compassion and curiosity, ask yourself how others could feel in the moment and what really matters most. What could you do differently?
How does Coaching work?
My Coaching is a mix between Co-Active Coaching, Positive Intelligence and Mindfulness. You come to me with a problem, a frustration, something you feel stressed about. You know something needs to change even if you don’t know why or how. During a session, Co-Active help us connect to you as a whole person, naturally resourceful. What are the emotional, physical and energetical impacts? Positive Intelligence helps explore your Saboteurs’ lies and limiting beliefs. With Mindfulness exercices, you access your Sage, your Leader Within. Who do you really want to Be? What matters the most? Only then, you access new parts of your brain, and see new perspectives. You finally find motivating steps to take towards your goals.
