Alicia Alonso, one of our medical specialists in Barcelona. An explosion of light, joy and smiles. She rediates happiness through every pore of your skin. Talker, close and full of vitality. There is no stopping this earthquake of positivity.
The truth is that there are many colors that I like, for example, in summer I prefer white and light colors such as pink, blue, green etc. On the other hand, in winter, I really like the color black.
Your music and song
In this I am very disparate and classical. I love the classical music concerts at the Palau de la Música, as well as the Gospel concerts, which I think are the only concerts I go to. There are several singers that I like, such as Alejandro Fernandez, Buenavista Social Club, Sabina … and as for my favorite song, I would not know what to tell you!
What do you do when you wake up?
Go to the kitchen and put the coffee machine on, then I prepare breakfast, tidy up the kitchen, make the bed and, finally, I take a shower and get ready to leave. Yes, all with time since I do not like to go in a hurry in the morning.
What do you do before going to sleep?
I usually watch TV for a while or read, it all depends on whether there is a series I like or a reality show (which distracts me a lot). Right now, I have to confess, that there is a book that has me hooked and every day I read it for a couple of hours, it’s called The Valley of Astonishment, and it’s fantastic.
What do you do to relax?
I have done yoga for many years but I had to leave because of a problem in the arm. Even so I learned to relax with my breathing, I even do it when I’m driving, at traffic lights or in traffic jams. Right now I do pilates three days a week. Oh! And in a little while on the beach without hurry this also relaxes me a lot, especially at sunset.
What are you passionate about?
Undoubtedly there are two things that I absolutely love: travel and good food. I love the trips, in fact I try to take a long trip during the holidays and mini getaways during the rest of the year. As I said, another thing I really enjoy is good food, which is why I love going to the market and cook up a storm.
What does taking care of yourself meant to you?
For me to take care of myself is to eat healthy, walk and enjoy massages, both beauty and therapeutic. Finally, one of the things that I consider essential to enjoy a state of well-being, to be well with yourself.
