“This is it?”

I asked myself this question while sitting against my favourite tree in the woods, tears running down my cheeks. In the middle my second burnout, it was time for change. It couldn’t continue like this any longer. So, I started an intense journey of self-discovery, guided by my own intuition.

Physically, mentally, and emotionally, I reinvented myself. By delving into the physiology of stress, moving more, quitting smoking and drinking, and eating more consciously, I began to embrace a lighter life. With the help of therapists and coaches, I learned to listen to my entire body, not just that critical voice in my head.

Now, I feel stronger than ever. Small steps, but with a lasting effect. I’ve learned that my best life begins when I’m in balance, both physically, mentally, and emotionally. I embrace my stress, working with it rather than against it.

It’s not about perfection; I’m still learning every day. But by taking good care of myself and being open to my feelings, everything flows much smoother. And believe it or not, people even like me (sometimes)!
