Modus Vivendi – Model Interview with Frank Martins

In ancient Greece people believed that you have to care for the 3 most important self the Body, the Mind and the Soul. What are your daily habits to support and evolve yourself?

I try to take care of myself through physical care with a lot of training, I also practice meditation and yoga and I take great care at the time of eating, I observe my diet.

Do you believe people can change? Change their habits, physical appearance … what it takes?

To change you have to make the decision to do it. I do believe that everyone can change and improve. It just depends on you.

What’s your favorite person of all times? Why he/she inspires you?

My father is my favorite person, because he always sets the example for me to move forward and shows me that it is never too late to start any project.

Benefits of yoga and meditation in your life?

It is a practice that brings well-being, both mentally and physically. I take time for it, a pause, to be able to think things better and try to see them from a point of view that perhaps at first I was not able. And also, yoga gives me flexibility to have a better body expression.

Any causes you support? How people can help others?

I try to behave well socially. I think we would all help others a lot by trying not to annoy or not meddle in what is not our concern. Trying to let people live freely and care about the well-being of those around us.

Have you changed your daily habits to support the environment?

Yes I do. I separate the garbage into organic and non-organic. Keep public roads clean. Taking good care of the amount of water I use.

Are you currently in a relationship? What do you value in a person?

No, I am not in any relationship. What I value the most in others is respect and sincerity.

Favorite movies, books or music?

Favorite Movie: Gladiator.

Favorite Book: Man’s Search for Meaning

Music: I prefer Argentine Cumbia.

What do you do to stay connected with others?

Today, thanks to social networks, we can get closer to those who are further away. And in person, I try to make meetings with friends, drink mate, have barbecued dinner, and drink some red wine.

Which are you passions in life?

From a sporting point of view I am passionate about football or soccer, which is what I have been most passionate about since I can remember both playing it and watching it. And today I am very attracted to art, such as theater. I’m actually doing drama classes and I really like it.

How covid19 did change you? Daily life, life perspective, priorities …

I think this pandemic has made us all dizzy, it has been a blow. Unfortunately, now we cannot get together to train or go out with friends, or meet in a bar or go for a drink. You can’t even walk with other people. I have been concentrating more on meditation lately, so I can be calmer and focus my head on productive things.
