1)What does a healthy balanced lifestyle mean for you?
My recipe for a healthy balanced lifestyle is:
Good food (whole foods, natural ingredients)
Spending time in nature and in the sun
Inspiring work and/or a hobby
Spending time with family and friends
Living in the present moment – here and now
2) How are you practicing self-care?
What is very important for me is to follow a routine. Therefore, I have a morning routine and an evening routine.
In the morning I do some 10-15 minutes of yoga and I try to do different exercises every day in order not to get bored. Afterwards I do dry skin brushing. I also start the day with a cup of hot water or hot tea (I do not drink coffee at all)
In the evening I love to take a hot shower, then read a book. I also practice “gratitude writing” by reflecting on all good things which have happened throughout the day.
3) What are the little things that make you happy?
- Blueberries and raspberries
- The colour of the sky right after the sun goes down
- Playing with dogs
4) Favourite quote(s) that you love?
Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving. – Albert Einstein
5) If you were faced with your fear, how would you deal with it?
We can learn from every situation and what we fear is often what we need to overcome the most. I try to turn the situation into a lesson and search for the silver lining.
