Treatment for Depression – Meditation and Running

We, Anne and Kimmo, like to share insights, inspiration and information about welness and hospitality trends. We are also Ambassadors of Global Wellness Day for The Netherlands (you can read more here about GWD NL) and, as ambassador, help create a lasting awareness of ‘living well’ for all people.
