Discover Your Unique Personality Type with Good&Co

This post is sponsored by Good&Co but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.
We are fortunate to live in a time, when information is so easily accessible, innovation and individuality are encouraged, and growth and progress are the definition of success. We can also learn about ourselves much faster with the help of personality quizzes and tests, and therefore choose a better fitting career path. My new favorite way to learn more about myself is the Good&Co app. It's a self discovery app that uncovers your personality type through a set of fun quizzes. It helps you discover your strengths and weaknesses, find a career you love, learn how to succeed in it, explore your work style and how to become a better leader. Not bad for a simple app, right?
I took the first test to get my custom Strengths Card, which showed (or rather confirmed) that I am a strategist, a go getter and a visionary, and also confirmed just once again that I have a creative personality (along with other traits like discoverer, innovator etc). It's pretty fun to discover your unique personality traits, and to find a new or adjust your existing career in case the one you have no longer fits your personality. As for me, I am sticking with the same path as it still fits me perfectly - creating great content, negotiating on my own behalf and having my own schedule :)
Download the app and take the first Good&Co quiz yourself. Unlock the Strength card, discover in-depth insights into your work style and your compatibility with others and companies!

Protection without Distractions with U by Kotex Fitness

This post is sponsored by U by Kotex Fitness, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.
Summer is around the corner and we are all trying to get our bodies ready for those bikinis and hit the gym as much as we can. I initially went back to my regular workouts to get in better shape for the summer, but now I do it more for mental reasons. Regular exercise supports my energy levels and my sleep patterns and elevates my mood. So many perks! 
But we all know how easy it is to break the pattern and slide out of the routine. When I have a long break from the gym, I drag going back and end up not going for weeks or sometimes months. And for us, ladies, it's especially hard to stay on track when that time of the month comes along. All we want to do is stay home and do nothing, even though we know that exercise will actually help us feel better. Well...gone are those sad days, because U by Kotex Fitness is a new product line designed specifically for that time. They have a whole line of products such as pads, liners and tampons, that are shaped to fit and flex with your body, and uniquely created for exercise. Designed specifically for bodies in motion, each U by Kotex Fitness product offers you comfortable protection that stays in place - so you don't have to! I love that U by Kotex Fitness products support my decision to be my period boss. Learn more about U by Kotex Fitness here.
