Hello, tell us about yourself
“Hello, my name is Artyom. I’m 20 years old. I’m originally from Kazakhstan. Right now, I live and study in the Netherlands. My mom is an expat, so I used to move around a lot. It’s cool though. Before came here, I lived in Kyrgyzstan and Macedonia.
I’m currently studying psychology and media communication at Webster University Leiden.”
What is self-care to you and when do you feel you need it the most?
“To me, self-care is like going out in nature, playing guitar, talking to people who close to me, like my friends and others who I can trust, who can hear me out, and who will support me when I’m going through a hard time.
I feel like I need self-care the most when I’m stressed out. Especially during school final week, I often feel overwhelmed by the amount of school projects.”
What is your favorite self-care ritual?
“I guess my favorite self-care is writing music and playing guitar. It helps me the most because when I’m going through something, I need to express my thoughts and feeling. Humming through it. It really helps to let my thoughts out and express my feeling.
I also love going to the gym and playing football. ”
Do you have a favorite inspirational quote and want to share it with us?
“Never stop growing and developing yourself. Never give up. Do what you love doing and surround yourself with people who bring you up instead of dragging you down.”
