MU: What are you passionate about ?
BR: I am passionate about culture, and in particular Chinese culture: its roots and its relationship with modernity.
MU: What's the most fulfilling part about what you do ?
BR: The most fulfilling is for me to never repeat two times the same day. As an entrepreneur I am in constant progression, and everyday is a new challenge, or a new lesson.
MU: What titles do you give this chapter in our life and why ?
BR: "EXPLORING" - I think this period allows for lots of new discoveries.
MU: What does wellness mean to you ?
BR: Breathing, eating, and applying happiness everyday. I believe wellness is first and foremost a state of mind.
"I believe wellness is first and foremost
a state of mind."
MU: What is a wellness trend that you have discovered recently and can't live without ?
BR: I don't know if it is a trend, but during the lockdown I spent much more time cooking than ever before. I used to love going to the restaurant, now I find nothing more satisfying (and healthy) than eating what I (or my partner) has cooked from raw ingredients to a full balanced meal.
MU: What or whom inspires you ?
BR: I try to be inspired everyday a little by a person I meet. I believe there is something to learn or to take from almost everyone. There is a Chinese proverb saying that, that I like to keep in mind: “三人行必有我师焉”
[Direct translate : If three of us are walking together, at least one of the other two is good enough to be my teacher. Meaning: there is always someone to learn from.]
MU: How do you stay balanced ?
BR: I get my energy and happiness from newness and discovery. To stay balanced I explore. I need this constant movement, because it is in movement that I truly find myself.
MU: What are your 3 wellness tips ?
BR: 1.Treat your body well. Eat healthy, sleep enough, excersise.
2.Treat your mind even better. Listen to your needs.
3.Most of all: Be happy. Do not seek pleasure, but happiness. Happiness is the most powerful way to keep you young and healthy.
MU: If you could be any superfood which one would you be and why ?
BR: Nuts. I eat a lot of them. Perfect snack, varied, tasty, and filled with good stuff.
MU: What’s your favourite MU product and how do you use it?
BR: The MU premium grade matcha! I use two teaspoons and blend it with a cup of coconut water, half a banana and half an avocado to supercharge my morning... also I like that it comes in a large tin.
