Restart again, restart always
‘Restarting’ is one of the words we believe to be most commonly used these days, a term that tries to describe the desire to make a new start after a period of crisis. However, restarting does not always stem from a difficulty; sometimes it is simply the desire to put oneself to the test, to change, to follow a vocation. It is also the will to listen to the B side of one’s life. This issue of Bistrôt, the last of 2021, is dedicated precisely to those who decide to start again, even though they could easily have continued along a road already marked out. To those who choose not out of necessity, but out of enthusiasm.

Restarting also means starting to take care of your body organically, without looking for shortcuts or technological tricks. A personal trainer explains it to us.
That’s why “restart again, restart always”. Restart again, restart always is the key that the protagonists of this edition of Bistrôt seem to have in common. Perhaps the best way not to have to start from scratch, not to have to start again because you are in difficulty or have fallen down, is to anticipate change. Knowing how to listen to our visions of the future, comparing them with the voices of the changing society and then being ready for each new beginning as if it were the first.
