1. What's your story? Where do you come from and what's your trayectory?
I'm a Dutch girl from the big city of Amsterdam. After spending 22 years in The Netherlands, my life turned upside down when I got the opportunity to make my job out of my biggest passion: handball. I moved to Norway to professionally play handball every day. Last summer I have moved to Germany to continue my journey as a professional handball player.
2. What do you think about the wellness/healthy lifestyle trend in Europe?
The focus on being fit and healthy have been developing more and more. People get more interested in health and fitness and realize how important it is for a long and happy life. Also there are so much more restaurants who serve healthy, vegetarian and even vegan dishes. For me it has been normal to train every day and watch what I eat for over 10 years. I am happy that many others now have the same kind of lifestyle.
3. Personal tips you recommend.
Mindset is the key for everything. Do the things that make you happy and realize that. Are you happier when you feel good in your skin and healthy? That's the perfect motivation to work out and eat healthy. Do you always regret it when you have eaten junk food? Then don't do it. Do you enjoy that ice cream during summer? Take it! Don't always say no to yourself. You don't have to be too strict to yourself, you can change your lifestyle and enjoy the journey. Not just the destination. It's all about balance!
