– What does inner wellbeing mean to you?
I perceive inner wellbeing as one of the most effective and yet one of the most challenging ways of being.
– How would you define wellbeing in one word?
Authenticity. One thing that I’ve observed (and experienced!) to be true is that the more we are in contact with ourselves, the “easier” it is to pursue what is relevant and true. To be able to define authenticity as a path for wellbeing has been the result of a very long and on-going personal journey.
– Are there any rituals or practices you use to enhance your wellbeing?
Nature has been increasingly my go-to place. Also, one of my key learnings after attending the Wellbeing Summit was the idea of “going home”, which has nothing to do with a physical place per se but rather being in constant connection with myself.
– Why is it important that we prioritise individual and collective wellbeing?
So that the work of our field becomes more enjoyable, congruent, and sustainable.
– Do you have any favourite books, podcasts, or articles that you believe support, promote, or educate on wellbeing and related themes?
Yes. On being by Krista Tippett is my go-to Podcast when I am in need of inspiration. These are two of my favorites episodes: Ai-jen Poo, This Is Our (Caring) Revolution – Listen to the Podcast, and Ocean Vuong, A Life Worthy of Our Breath – Listen to the Podcast.
