(IWD #6) The one who preached calm


* International Women’s day series 6/8 *

16: 00 . ‘A few years back, I travelled to Nepal for about three months – I volunteered and lived there. I learned the importance of remaining down to earth, of knowing how to appreciate food, the little things and to create calm for yourself. Back then, I felt like the most peaceful I had ever felt in my life. But coming back here, in Europe, made me realise that life can get hectic and it’s not always easy to apply this mind set. There are periods when I am always on the move and I can get overwhelmed: too many expectations from life. This is why I try to do adventures like sports, vacations, spiritual trips for example.’

‘I still get stressed, of course. It’s not like I am some kind of Buddha.’ (She laughs)
