Make decisions that make you happy - daily!! Josephine Worseck
About me and my life
After completing my PhD in molecular biology (June 2012), it was clear to me that neither an academic career nor a career in the pharmaceutical industry would fulfill me. In order to find a new purpose and to recover from Burnout symptoms that arose due to the exhausting pressure during my PhD, I decided to take a break. I traveled South-East Asia for nearly a year. In northern Thailand I came into contact with meditation for the first time - in retrospect, I am sure that this was the first step in the right direction and towards a healthier future ...
After my return I worked for a biotechnology company in business development (February 2014- September 2017). During these years my desire for more freedom, for more space for development and personal growth grew steadily - but also my courage. I reduced my weekly working hours and completed my yoga teacher training. In April 2016 I founded my own company to teach the relaxation techniques that have helped me to deal better with work-related stress.
It makes me happy to see how yoga, breathing techniques and meditation also helps my students deal better with stress. When I realized how important this work is, I decided to start two further educations despite working part-time in biotech and being self-employed already. I wanted to learn more about stress reduction methods - and understand how they affect the body within. In early 2017 I started my training as a Wim Hof trainer and my education to become a Naturopath. Before passing both exams in winter 2017, I did quit my biotech job completly! I did never regret that step!
