a) How do you take care of yourself on a daily basis?

The most important thing for me is the right amount of sleep. On this, I build my whole new day. Because every good night's sleep means a successful day. I try to clear my mind of negative emotions. Good music can arouse a lot of positive energy in me. Frequent contact with nature led to my reduced meat consumption to a minimum, and despite appearances, I have strength and feel great. A balanced diet, good energy and well-being is my recipe for a successful day.

b) What inspires you?


It may sound trivial from the perspective of my hobbies, but I get my inspiration from nature. I often spend my free time somewhere in the middle of the forest with my dog Dexter. I love the silence, and consistency can calm me down. It teaches me a lot and inspires me. Because everything there works together, it's one organism, a symbiosis that works perfectly together. It inspires and gives a lot of food for thought.

c) How do you understand the balance of mind and body?


I love the word symbiosis; the mind and body must live in symbiosis and balance—considering what I do daily, cooking. I can't cook with a negative attitude bad energy; in that case, I let go. Therefore, it is crucial to balance the mind with the body; this is the key to success.
