I have always been a sport aficionado. I actively played volleyball and tennis, and I did my best to maintain the training routine; however, my commitments at work and at home somehow prevailed and I found it hard to organise all of these.

Recently, I’ve read a touching story about the meeting of two mothers who were connected by a personal tragedy in a lifelong friendship. Early in 2020, 21-year-old Stefan had an accident, after which he was in a coma. Despite enormous efforts of the doctors, he was declared brain dead. The Vasiljevic family had no idea that it would come to that, but they had the opportunity to fulfill Stefan’s wish that his organs would be donated if something happened to him.

Jacket – fashion item or protection against energy loss?
Have you ever asked yourself if jacket is just a fashion item or much more than that? One engineer example, far from the world of fashion, demonstrates that jacket is in fact the best protection against loss of energy – both in a manufacturing plant, in a production process, and in everyday life, when we are exposed to extreme weather conditions…

Sleep disorders on the rise
Sleep disorders on the rise
Roughly one third of our lives is spent sleeping: this is the time for our brains to process the events of the day and for our bodies to regenerate and heal. A lack of sleep can have a severe and lasting impact on our overall health – especially when we fail to get enough rest over extended periods of time.

Food intolerances
Do you feel unwell after eating certain foods? It may be that your body does not tolerate certain foods. This may be because of a food intolerance: you don't have enough of the enzymes required to process substances such as lactose or histamine.

Preventive healthcare
Preventive healthcare
With everyday life largely on hold due to Covid-19, it was not only fun events that had to be canceled: Almost 1 in 5 Europeans have postponed a healthcare appointment during the pandemic. At first thought, this seems sensible, as the majority of us did our best to avoid leaving the house – and the doctor’s office was certainly the last place to go voluntarily if not absolutely necessary.

Healthy Lifestyle and Supplements
Healthy Lifestyle and Supplements
A lesson we learned last year: Health always comes first. Our coexistence is affected when everyone’s health is at stake. It thus comes as no surprise that a healthy lifestyle has become more important for 1 in 2 Europeans. And within this trend, food supplements, which can be taken to support our health, have found themselves at the centre of a certain COVID-induced hype.
