Tv chef chokes down: Affected by stress

in recent months, it has been limited to how much you have looked to the chef Gorm Wisweh in the 'Go' morgen Danmark', where he otherwise has been a fixture as a part of the kokkeholdet the last year.

It is, however, a special reason for that.

Gorm Wishweh, who is behind the Gorm Pizza, has struggled with stress the last few months, and as a consequence he has chosen to turn sharply down the pace.

he told Extra Bladet, when we met him in connection with the tv chef Christel Pixis book launch on Tuesday.

- I bet on that 2020 will be a more quiet year. I had a dive over the summer, where I was struggling with any stress, I just had to. So it has been a focus on, that I should not book in more. Just breathe and look forward to 2020 instead of and so really recognizing that there are no that forget, just because you are not busy. So I have cut down on the 'Go' morgen Danmark' also. I am not so much in for the time being, he says honestly.

According to the Gorm Wishweh began clear stressymptomer to join with him in the summer.

- I lost the balls. I forgot things. I forgot my pin. You stand with a card you've had for four years, and so know not how to use it. I have had very poor sleep. I slept almost not several weeks in a row, and I got some panic attacks. There it began to become really bad, he says, and continues:

- I have tried it once many years ago (to have stress, red.), so I was thankfully aware of the symptoms. It was the step before that, I went all the way down. So now I'm trying to take it quietly.

According to the well-known tv chef began symptoms to arise ahead of the summer festivals, where Gorm Pizza tradition have stalls.

Funny enough, it was a healing for me to take on the festival. I went down with the premise that I had not any responsibility. I would not stand for staff. I just had to be there in order for it to be alone, when it is something really bad. So to come out with all its employees and volunteers, and there is a party and the happy days, worked. It was something with the right to turn down the alcohol, too much alcohol is also not good, when you have too much clutter in the head, says Gorm Wisweh and continues:

I worked what I could, and then the rest of the time I heard the music and was seen with some friends. So it was my own pace, but I came out at the door, a place where I was activated, and where my brain was activated, so the mind is not just circled around. So it was the first part of my healing, and then I had summer break after the festivals, so it was home for mother's cakes and keep the holiday on the island and look at the Baltic sea and go for a walk in the sand, and then it comes all by itself. It helps to pull the plug, says the tv chef, who also has found great support from his wife and children.

the Tv cook tells that, for him, has had a positive effect to talk about the stress.

- the Hops are also to be good to talk about it, for there is nothing which is bloody stupid. You feel insane, for 'why can't I get out the door?', 'why can't I get out at my car'? This is how some strange things. But it is to get talking with someone helps, he tells and tells, that in some periods he has found it difficult to say no to his job.

- But it is only one though, who can't figure out how to say no. To do it only against himself. It is also, therefore, that the rest of the 2019 becomes quiet. I have purposely not taken very much into, and so to honour I, of course, all the appointments I made in early summer, and in addition it is very calm on, " he concludes.
