Today’s View

This is my view today – almost divine, don’t you think?



Being up in the mountains for Christmas is something truly special – so peaceful and serene.

While I get tucked into my Christmas-books, I suggest you enjoy the last bit of Christmas indulgence (it’s definitely allowed!) before you make the decision to let me help you get onto a healthier path of life in the new year!


Don’t forget…

During all these family-centered Christmas celebrations, please take a moment to remember yourself as well.

So, take a few moments to yourself at some point today and just breathe.

…and then keep enjoying the Christmas spirit!


Today is a glorious, happy and WARM day here in Zürich. Although the weather is not playing along, and we are most definitely not getting a white Christmas, we should all enjoy this day and think about what is important to us in life.

These cute little Merry Berry Santas will certainly find their way to my dessert table this evening.


Both them and I are wishing you a very Merry Christmas!
