Hi, I’m Christophe Vandeputte. Proud Belgian, serial dreamer and wanna-be entrepeneur. You could also call me a life-lover, that’s forever a student.
I’m trying to make a dent in the world by breaking the taboo surrounding anxiety, depression and offering easy-to-follow solutions.
What is ‘BEmindfool’ ?
BEmindfool is a movement that promotes being less serious about spirituality and self-development, while still using the basic principles, as they are of great value. I’ve found out for myself the power in some techniques and share them with you now.
BEmindfool is about:
Being human: how to grow from our fucked-up mistakes
Being perfectly imperfect
Taking control of our lives while maintaining our sanity
How it all started
When I was around 16 years old I hit a fucking big wall. I woke up in the middle of the night, swimming in sweat and an overall feeling of extreme panic seeped in my body. Heart pounding in my throat, I thought I was going to die. I had hit a wall. A wall of anxiety, panic attacks, uncertainty and unhappiness…
Although I was acting tough and a loud-mouth growing up, I was insecure and scared of people’s opinions. Years of bottling up these emotions and trying to please everyone, something had to give. And something did give… I was desperate, seeking and searching EVERYWHERE, there must have been ‘something’ that I could find? I wasn’t able to find what was ‘wrong’ with me.
I slowly realized that I forgot to look in the ONE place that made the most sense: inside of myself. I started building myself up again. Years of reading, practicing meditation, deliberately getting out of my comfort zone got me to where I’m at today.
We don’t have to have perfect yoga stances and eat clean, vegan kale salads and smoothies. It’s nice of you, Suzy. But it’s not the standard and not an expectation.
What to expect?
Real and personal articles, made to inspire
Mind hacks and tricks to upgrade your life
Physical exercises to control the mental state
WHAT THE READERS SAY:
Always taking in the advice and input of others, this is what some of the BEmindfool family already have to say:

A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool’
