  • Description

    Hello, I am Christina. I'm 30 years old and I've worked as a researcher in Psychology for 4 years. I really liked to work in a project together with people, and now I am looking for something more practical, instead of office work. My master study was 'Positive psychology and technology', there I learned that not only treating symptoms and diseases is important, but at the same time also the promotion of health and positive factors (positive emotions, personal strength, creating/finding meaning of ones life). I strongly agree with this way of thinking and practiced it by mindfulness and meditation.
    I love to travel and to be in contact with locals and to get to know more about different cultures and lifestyles, other kinds of daily living. My aim is to contributie to the environment and to help reforestation. But I'm also interested in a host where we can do Yoga or meditation together. Furhtermore I'm also thinking to try out some hostelwork. I am german but I live in the Netherlands for 10 years now.
