This is my first blogpost (blog-post ?) on this page, with many more to come. I am so excited about the people that will hopefully find their way to my website. First I want to tell you a little bit about myself, so that you have an idea about who is sitting on the other side of the screen :). I am 18 years old and I live in Germany, I am half German half American. I graduated from a school, that got me my GCSE and I left school after that. I did some modeling and some part time working in a little firm close to my house but mostly just continued to struggle with my mental health issues that had been going on in different shapes and forms since grade 5, but only got worse as the years progressed. During the last year my awareness for the ecological crises that our planet is in increased dramatically, as did my passion for health - both mental and physical/fitness which is why I decided to become a certified personal trainer - which I did. And now I am trying to figure out what to do with my life for now. I quickly want to explain what I want to communicate and put out into the world. This Website and is called thrive-bynature because I want to give inspiration to integrate nature more in our everyday lives and to live with it not against it, because that is the natural way and what let´s us thrive more than anything. For example, if I were to put out a follow along workout, certain exercises to help relieve low back pain on YouTube and you require a resistance band, I will tell you about sustainable brands that sell them and I will not just link any brand. The same goes for active wear for example, I will make a list of brands that produce sustainable active wear or second hand online shops that you can purchase from. If I do a cooking video or a blog about food it will include tips on how to shop sustainably, brands that produce sustainably, tips to avoid plastic when food shopping and so on. I think you get what I´m saying. I will be posting on this blog once a week to begin with and then go from there. Thank you for reading my introduction. If you ever have any questions about the posts or content, please feel free to contact me via the contact field (which I know is spelled "Kontakt", but I can not change that for some reason) and I will happily answer each and every question.
PS: There will be an Instagram profile coming soon !
