Helena Rentmeester heeft na het atheneum de hbo-opleiding Reclame & Vormgeving gevolgd in Rotterdam. Hierna heeft zij jarenlang verschillende commerciële functies in het bedrijfsleven vervuld.
Tegenwoordig woont Helena in Duitsland. Na de geboorte van haar dochter in 2003 heeft ze het roer omgegooid en is ze fulltime gaan schrijven. Uit haar interesse voor de klassieke oudheid is haar debuutroman Pont du Gard ontstaan.

Verder werkt zij aan een gothic novel en schrijft zij alsmaar nieuwe korte verhalen.

Het jaar is zo goed als voorbij, en dus is het tijd voor terugblikken en lijstjes maken.
Vandaag een lijst met de mooiste boeken die ik in 2015 gelezen heb.

Dankzij Goodreads is het gemakkelijk mijn lezerijen bij te houden. Eind vorig jaar had ik meegedaan met de "Reading Challenge" en me voorgenomen in 2015 50 boeken te lezen. Een nobel streven, want dat komt neer op een gemiddelde van ongeveer... Read more of this blog post »

Helena Helena said: " Dit boek zit momenteel in mijn tas voor wachtkamers en tijdens reizen, dus ik schiet niet heel erg op momenteel. Heb nog een vijftal boeken van de bibliotheek liggen die dringender uit moeten. "

Kelly McGonigal
“Here’s how to get started: 1. Sit still and stay put . Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the ground, or sit cross-legged on a cushion. Sit up straight and rest your hands in your lap. It’s important not to fidget when you meditate—that’s the physical foundation of self-control. If you notice the instinct to scratch an itch, adjust your arms, or cross and uncross your legs, see if you can feel the urge but not follow it. This simple act of staying still is part of what makes meditation willpower training effective. You’re learning not to automatically follow every single impulse that your brain and body produce. 2. Turn your attention to the breath. Close your eyes or, if you are worried about falling asleep, focus your gaze at a single spot (like a blank wall, not the Home Shopping Network). Begin to notice your breathing. Silently say in your mind “inhale” as you breathe in and “exhale” as you breathe out. When you notice your mind wandering (and it will), just bring it back to the breath. This practice of coming back to the breath, again and again, kicks the prefrontal cortex into high gear and quiets the stress and craving centers of your brain . 3. Notice how it feels to breathe, and notice how the mind wanders. After a few minutes, drop the labels “inhale/exhale.” Try focusing on just the feeling of breathing. You might notice the sensations of the breath flowing in and out of your nose and mouth. You might sense the belly or chest expanding as you breathe in, and deflating as you breathe out. Your mind might wander a bit more without the labeling. Just as before, when you notice yourself thinking about something else, bring your attention back to the breath. If you need help refocusing, bring yourself back to the breath by saying “inhale” and “exhale” for a few rounds. This part of the practice trains self-awareness along with self-control. Start with five minutes a day. When this becomes a habit, try ten to fifteen minutes a day. If that starts to feel like a burden, bring it back down to five. A short practice that you do every day is better than a long practice you keep putting off to tomorrow. It may help you to pick a specific time that you will meditate every day, like right before your morning shower. If this is impossible, staying flexible will help you fit it in when you can.”
