About Green Yourself
Hi there, I'm Kim Bresseleers, a highly sensitive person, dog mom, nature lover and founder of Green Yourself.
It's nice to meet you!
I created Green Yourself as a way to provide information about different ways to accomplish a healthy, happier and more fulfilling lifestyle.
For years I struggled with stomach pains, digestion issues, muscle aches, low energy and difficult breathing. To me, these were normal, as I just assumed everyone else felt the same way. Until one day, my body couldn't take it anymore and there I was, at home with a burnout for 3 months.
During this period I learned a lot about myself, I am a highly sensitive person and am suffering from chronic hyperventilation. It was then that I decided to make a serious lifestyle change. I wanted to live a different kind of life with less stress, focus on healthy food and nature and more time for the people and animals that I love.
First of all I focused on changing my diet by removing all processed foods, eating entirely natural, whole foods. I also started using natural products for the care of my entire body. In the beginning this was a challenge, however easier then expected. After only a few weeks I felt like a total new person.
In the meantime, I also took care of my mental health by spending more time in nature, taking time to relax and be creative; all this to reduce my stress level. I also learned more about myself and the type of life I wanted. This is why I chose to live a different type of life in another place away from the city, with more nature surrounding me.
My hope is that you will find inspiration here on Green Yourself – in my story, recipes, how-to guides, wellness articles and the inspiring community.
Please know this is a place to celebrate your unique journey; no matter where you are on your own path, and no matter what diet you follow, we are here to support you every step of the way.
I’m so happy to have you here!
