What do you do for your health?
For Carmen, the morning routine is sacred; Garry covers 40 kilometres a day on his bike almost as a matter of course; Christine spoils herself with a new menu; and Stephanie takes conscious time out on hectic days with meditation or laughter yoga.
The four have one thing in common
What they do to keep healthy and feel good has changed over the course of their lives. In the video, they talk about what health means to them today and what health tips they would like to pass on as inspiration.
Rest for Stephanie
That Stephanie's daily life can sometimes be a bit turbulent is easy to believe when you experience her cheerful and energetic nature. This makes it all the more important for Stephanie to find time to relax, listen to her inner self and find distance.
Stephanie's health tip
“Simply open the window and take ten conscious breaths. Or, when on the train, shut your eyes for a moment and be fully at one with yourself.” We have nine more stress-relieving tips to help you wind down.
Balance for Carmen
For a fit and healthy body, Carmen used to really push herself. At some point, she realised that it didn't make her happier and discovered how good it is to prioritise her mental health.
Carmen’s health tip
“Just getting up five minutes earlier and taking a little time for yourself has a positive effect on your whole day. Many things run better afterwards." For a good start to the day, we recommend our 10-minute yoga flow.
Outdoors for Garry
Exercise has to fit naturally into Garry’s everyday life. That's why he always rides his bike to and from work. He likes exercising in the fresh air at weekends too.
Garry’s health tip
“Have fun with what you do and incorporate this fun into your everyday life. Because doing something good for your health then becomes something quite normal.” If, like Garry, your fun is off-piste, read our freeride safety tips here.
Enjoying food for Christine
No wonder Christine has become a passionate cook. Her grandmother was a professional cook for aristocratic families and often let her peek into the cooking pots when she was a child. To this day, food is Christine's most important way of staying healthy.
Christine’s health tip
“Use unaltered, natural foods as much as possible. With fresh herbs and lots of spices, you can be unbelievably creative. The best thing is to just try it out for yourself.” These Christmas spices, for example, will lift your mood during the cold season.
