Live bet­ter

As part of our coop­er­a­tion with Tech­niker Krankenkasse, we pub­lish new arti­cles here every week, which can help you in cer­tain life sit­u­a­tions. In this blog you will learn every­thing about how you can make your life bet­ter, for exam­ple, how to reduce stress or sleep better. 

In addi­tion to the excit­ing arti­cles, you can also expect deli­cious recipes every week. In addi­tion, every Mon­day you will receive moti­va­tion­al posts on Insta­gram, Yam­mer or Face­book under the #moti­va­tion­mon­day.
