This week, we have the pleasure of getting to know a little better the Joana Teixeirafounder of The Therapist Lx. For those who don't know it, besides a restaurant that follows functional nutrition principles (super in favor!), they also offer personalized accompaniment for those who need new routines and recipes for better health and lifestyle - think less fatigue, more energy, less bloating...
Joana quit the stability of a secure job to launch into a project of her own, in which she believes 1000% - and this is always super inspiring! So, here's another From the Inside Out. I hope you like it and you know you'll always get discounts to enjoy Joana's favorite products here 💓

CREATEWho and what inspires you? People. I love watching people on the street,
in restaurants, at home... I find human behavior fascinating and the
most of the ideas I have are from interaction with others.
What do you have yet to create? So much! This head never stops. But
now I am dedicated to a personal project of flowers and crystals, some
kind of amulets. 😬
How to maintain creativity: Seeking happiness. A happy person is
a creative person. I look for happiness in socializing with friends, the
dancing, being with my family, walking in nature ...

How to relax at the end of the day: "Sofar" with my husband
