L’Art de Vivre according to NATALIE RICHARD
For me, The Art of Life starts with health and well being which, like every other art form, is the result of a constant search for balance.
Eating fresh and healthy food, drinking high quality water and drinks, breathing fresh air, and choosing to live in a healthy and beautiful environment. Having fun, laughing and loving. Indulging in daily pleasures and always finding good reasons to celebrate life, every day.
Eating : Fresh and high quality food, avoiding junk and processed food. Eating less but better. Choosing nourishment over punishment.
Drinking : Lots of pure water and looking for the best quality in all the other drinks, such as juices, coffee, tea, and of course, wine.
Breathe : Fresh air every day, exercice, even if it’s just going for a walk. Take time to breath deeply and consciously.
