What are you reading at the moment? The Responsibility Ethic, by Adam Kreek

What’s keeping you awake at night? I usually sleep well at night. And when I do not, I do Yoga Nidra (which I highly recommend for anyone who would like to fall asleep easily!)

What’s the one thing you cannot live without? My wife and my son.

What is the hardest thing you overcame? Life is a continuous journey of overcoming things, which is why it is so important to have the right attitude towards challenges. We need to adopt a meditative attitude, have faith that it is all working out for us, and (this is an important step that many ‘spiritual’ people forget) work towards making it better!

How did you get out of your own way? In this order: Rowing, relaxation, Yoga, meditation, Muay Thai, lifting weights, running.
