Talking about beautiful people you meet in your life. I would like to introduce Anne Gelebartand I asked her four questions about me-time.
Please introducé yourself. Who are you?
My name is Anne, I’m French and was born in Orleans (100km in the South of Paris). I wanted to be a doctor and I ended up studying business administration to support my dream to live abroad. My journey started in Madrid in 2006; I then moved to London to finish my studies and decided to settle there to work for multinationals in Supply Chain management. In 2014, I moved to the Netherlands. That’s when I realised I was missing something in my life: having true and in depth conversation with people. I chose to change my career path. I currently live in Amsterdam with my partner and our 2 boys.
What kind of work? I am now a Life and Career Coach and a Pilates instructor. I support internationals who are driven to achieve their professional goals whilst keeping their personal balance. My approach is holistic, I believe the body has wisdom and so I incorporate embodiment in my coaching. I also lead retreats where I bring coaching, mindfulness, dance and Pilates together to allow people to integrate their body and their mind and unleash their potential.
Which desire do you have for more me-time?
Me-time is so very precious and being a mum and an entrepreneur I make it an everyday ‘duty’ to have me-time. I believe that with me-time I am a better mum as I set an example to my children that they have to cherish their own time. It also allows me to get some head space which helps me to be more creative in my job and give the best to my clients.
What are your top 3 for taking me-time?
- Doing my Pilates workout to get centered and release all kinds of body tensions
- Doing my body scan in my bed in the mornings to bring awareness to what is going on
- Going to my improv class on Monday nights to start the week on a high and let my creativity express itself
I love meeting new people so connect with me on LinkedIn or contact me via my website 😊
Thank you Anne for sharing me-time
take care of your self. you are important
