Why breathing calmly is one of the best tools to unwind - Gilles Grosemans featured image

In our busy and often hectic world, consciously seeking ways to relax is essential to stay well-balanced. The question is: how do you do that? Gilles Grosemans, moonbird’s production and supply chain manager shares his tips and insights.

In moments of stress, overstimulation or frustration, I know that breathing consciously and calmly is one of the best tools I always have available.

Who is Gilles Grosemans?

“I am production and supply chain manager at moonbird and I have a master's degree in Finance from the KUL. I am sociable, motivated, and pragmatic, people tell me. In my spare time I like to do sports (padel, squash, mountain biking,...), I like to travel to explore the world or you can find me in a cozy cafe with a beer in hand.”

What drives your work for moonbird?

“I love that my range of tasks is so diverse. New challenges present themselves every day, which ensures that I can always keep myself busy with various things and my job never bores.

Because we are still with a relatively small team, the result of every finished project or problem solved is highly visible. This motivates me to keep working so I can genuinely help people. Because, at the end of the day, that’s the reason why I’m here.”

How do you notice you’re in need of relaxation?

“Fortunately, I can easily put things into perspective. When I notice this is getting harder, and I get frustrated faster than usual, I know I need to slow down.”

What do you do when you notice this?

“Sports work best for me, such as mountain biking, squash, or running. This way I can completely clear my head. Meeting up with friends and doing something that takes the focus of my mind (read: enjoying a pint together) always helps as well.”

Taking a moment for myself to focus on my breathing can also work wonders. In moments of stress, overstimulation or frustration, I know that breathing consciously and calmly is one of the best tools I always have available. I then take a break for a few minutes or lean back in my office chair to put everything back into perspective.”

What is your motto in life?

“Live life for the moment, because everything else is uncertain.”
