3 tips to take better care of yourself
1. You hear it often, but getting enough sleep is key for a fresh brain and a healthy body. As a growing start-up, we know it all too well, our job is never done, which results in late-night work. Yet we try, especially during weekdays, to go to bed at the same hour.
Because we have been able to experience the positive effect of this and perhaps also secretly as a memory aid for ourselves, we are happy to put this tip at number one.
It is not always feasible, but it is worth considering.
Do you have a regular bio-rhythm, but no feeling fresh when you get out of bed? Maybe it's time for a modified mattress! At GREENSLEEP they make beds and mattresses from 100% ecological materials and they are handmade in Belgium.
2. Do you often skip breakfast because you are in a hurry? Then you may feel drowsy and distracted faster. Try eating a bowl of oatmeal with a piece of fruit every morning. It takes 21 days to teach yourself a new habit.
After this little month your body will reward you. You will feel a lot healthier and more energetic.
Yes, an apple a day keeps the doctor away 🙃
3. Start using beauty products that are 100% natural, it is not only much better for your skin but also for our planet. Among the growing range of natural products, it can be difficult to find what you need. Let two experts in their field assist you, Iris Van Dessel from Druantia in Lier and Chloé Matthieu from Clothilde in Aalst are happy to help you make the right choice.
