Of course there are also many tips on how you can feel better and what you can do for that.

From a career at Rijkswaterstaat to nature coach - How things can go differently
You have mapped out a nice career path. You go to work, you have a good job. But what if it no longer fits?
"From a career at Rijkswaterstaat where I started, I now work as a nature and hiking coach. At a certain point I noticed that the work I was doing no longer suited me. I stopped. An exciting and uncertain period. Uneasy too, which way is it going? At one point I noticed, when you close a door, another one opens. Things came my way. I went hiking again. Nature gave me new ideas that seem to fit me much better and that make me happy. Now I work as a nature and hiking coach. I am happy to tell you my story and share my insights with you. I look forward to meeting you."
