20180411_124906

Confidence is the feeling or belief that one can have faith in or rely on someone or something. It is the basis for nearly everything in life. In what we dare to do in life, with whom we live and work together with and in what we use.

When getting seriously ill, you may get less confidence in your own body. Or you even completely lose confidence in your body. After having a heart attack for example. When someone survived the heart attack and recovered from it, he or she can enjoy life again. But this is easier said than done. In practice this seems very difficult for people. Mainly caused by a lack of confidence. But, what if a simple tool gives you your confidence back, you dare to go out and you feel that freedom again…
