At the age of 25, I had a complete physical and mental breakdown. This had a very profound impact on me, essentially changing my life and career paths. I was curious about the root reasons, which might have caused all this mess. It was obvious, I had too many unhealthy habits, such as; multitasking, addiction to technology and constant stress in the workplace. I had no information and awareness of how to manage stress and time.There was no workplace wellness programme for employees,which could act as a guide.
I had questions: How to live healthier lifestyle? What is stress and how to manage it? What are the key factors? I discovered, that the most basic healthy lifestyle factors are: clean nutrition, daily exercise, being mindful of the present moment and having good sleep/rest. However, this was only the start, because there are so much more to learn about the other healthy lifestyle tweaks and daily healthy rituals.
