Beatriz Retamar

Personal Assistant at The Wellbeing Project

Madrid,
Spain

Beatriz, who prefers to be called Bea, studied a double degree in Business Management and Law. However, it was during her first working experiences when she realized that helping or being of service to others was her passion.

Bea has spent 10 years working in the Customer Relations/ Hospitality business with a special interest in CRM. After living in many countries such as Mexico, Lithuania, The Netherlands, and Portugal she enjoys working in international environments, and this brought her to The Wellbeing Project back in December, 2022.

She enjoys the little things in life; going for a walk, spending quality time with her beloved ones, watching a good movie or reading a book. One of her biggest passion is working out at the gym, especially strength training, but also a good yoga lesson every now and then.

Her interests are diverse with a special emphasis on Spirituality, Psychology, Neuroscience and anything related to the self-discovery or creating more meaningful connections.

What does inner wellbeing mean to you?

Taking care of your emotional, physical and spiritual state.

How would you define wellbeing in one word?

Health

Are there any rituals or practices you use to enhance your wellbeing?

I try to meditate or do breathing exercises every morning, even if it is just for 5 minutes that literally shift my energy during the whole day. I also like to walk slow, being conscious of my steps and breathing. Whenever I want to be focused, I do enjoy listening to alpha waves and if I can’t sleep I try to do a body scan. Eating real food is something that enhances my wellbeing in my daily life.

Why is it important that we prioritise individual and collective wellbeing?

As we say, wellbeing inspires welldoing. When you are taking care of yourself, you live your life with compassion, love, caring and being present in the moment. All of this creates an impact, not only in your inner world but in the outer world as well by the way you connect with people or the way you face challenges. You are awake and ready to receive the world’s energy.

Do you have any favourite books, podcasts, or articles that you believe support, promote, or educate on wellbeing and related themes? 

I have read many books from Borja Vilaseca, who I am a big fan of, also Louise Hay, Marian Rojas, Mario Alonso Puig, Dr. Mark Hyman. Those are some of the first names that popped in my mind.
