Katja Schuurman, who spent last month in South Africa to participate in a yoga retreat, can now better divide her attention. The actress and presenter notice that a structure brings advantages in the day.
In conversation with De Telegraaf , 44-year-old Schuurman says that she "had a good conversation with herself in South Africa". "In a world where we are all 'racing', it is sometimes good to sometimes take a few steps back. I know what my pitfalls are and I said goodbye to them."
The actress, who will soon be featured in the new Sunday evening show The Battle , says that she is always "running and flying". "Without prioritizing or really having a structure in my life or enjoying what I did enough."
As a result, she often felt emotional, irritable and indecisive. "In the retreat I learned, by talking a lot and writing off my issues, to direct my attention. So no longer let my energy dissipate like steam in a pan of boiling water without a lid, but bundle and bundle my energy as with a whistling kettle with an exit straight ahead. "
Schuurman has therefore decided to start her days in a fixed way and now gets up at 6 a.m. every day. "In a specially equipped garden shed, to do yoga and to think for a moment: what did I do well or less yesterday, and what is my intention for today? It makes me calm and very powerful afterwards."
