Psychotherapist Maaret Kallio: “I am a nicer person when I eat regularly”

– The mind lives in the body. Through the body can affect the mind, but also through the mind to the body, says Maaret Kallio, who moves outdoors in nature when feeling stuck or electric staring at the screen.

– The stability of nature reminds me that there is something much bigger than me and my grief.

Maaret especially enjoys the family acquired a cottage last year by the forest and by the sea.

– As a child, I felt bored when my parents berryed and mushroomed endlessly. Now I’m in for a while as I collect food, chanterelles and blueberries from the cottage yard.

“I’m such an eater that I’m probably already an exception”

The basis of Maaret’s well-being is regular meal times. He makes sure that the intervals between meals do not stretch too long, as he is strongly affected by fluctuations in blood sugar.

– I am a nicer person when I eat regularly. I also drink daily coffee every day.

Ordinary home cooking tastes great to Maaret and her family, a box of pasta and spinach cakes.

– I’m such an eater that I’m probably an exception to that. I have no restrictions or allergies, and for some reason I have never tried any special diets. Instead, flexibility with regard to food is also important for mental health, a small treat every now and then.
