In my latest Instagram inquiry I’d asked you what topics you like to read more of in the future and lots of you requested more personal thoughts & insights. So here we go: Today I’ll be sharing some updates on a few personal issues and my work/life balance.
Last year I’ve learned a lot about my body. To be honest, I always took my health for granted and never expected this significant change, that started last summer… But ever since I’ve developed stress-related health issues I finally woke up and heared the alarm. We all react differently to stress and life-challenges but for me it was a painful lactose & fructose intolerance accompanied by deficiency and burn-out symptoms. Yum!
So it was about time to reduce my stress, listen to my body and take regular time-outs. For me the key to stress-reduction is Sport and Wellness. Beside my weekly home spa routine I’ve been working out a lot right now. Not only because of my upcoming wedding (+ bikini season) but also to lower my stress level and increase my strength. I’ve started to work out at VITURA for over a year now (read more about it here) and it was the best decision ever! I’d rather invest in personal training and health than in materialistic stuff.
I absolutely love these short time-outs: 60 minutes power sessions with no phone, no social media and no to-do lists. Just me, my (sore) muscles and I. My Trainer Niki, also the co-founder of Vitura, is the absolute best: always pushing me to the limit but in a good way. I’m currently training at the brand-new Vitura Studio, in the heart of Vienna (Rudolfsplatz 9 / 1010 Vienna). The owners, Niki and Phillip, created a modern and inviting work-out hub with lots of natural light and awesome interior. The studio is far away from shady, sweaty muscle beach vibes – instead you train at a place that motivates and pushes you. Exactly what I looked for. By the way: Vitura also offers yoga sessions, physio, massages and power circle training.
However, I feel much better now and I wouldn’t trade my work-out units for anything. Let’s hope my stomache (and stress level) keeps getting better and better…
