Less ego, more amigo

“Think freely. Learn a lot if you can and bring a big dose of humour.”


We asked, you answered.

How would you describe yourself?

37, white, female, migrant, yoga teacher, academic, works as a brand manager, loves languages and communication and good ideas

Imagine you are 72, 80 or even 99 years old: How and with whom do you live together?

With friends (commune) or a family member or partner

Who are the most important people in your life and how do you spend time with them?

Time together in the countryside or on trips, together at the table over a meal or a good wine, we are all healthy and we laugh a lot

What is your sex and love life like in the future?

Sexuality is not that important I hope.

How do you manage to stay mentally and physically fit?

Walking, yoga, jogging, nutrient-rich foods

How do you afford everyday life in the future?

Giving yoga lessons, my pension, and maybe giving home-made jam or bread in exchange for other pleasurables

In the future, what do you get up for in the morning?

To greet the world and enjoy the wonderful nature

If you had to tell a young friend about all the things you’ve done right while ageing and would thus recommend to them… What would they be?

Less ego, more amigo. Do good for others and enjoy it. Think freely. Learn a lot if you can and bring a big dose of humour.
