Judith Rakers completely turned her life around a few years ago and despite her physical changes, couldn’t be happier.
Judith Rakers (47) dared to make a new start after her 40th birthday: she moved from the Hamburg city to a rural farm. A decision that the “Tagesschau” spokeswoman has not regretted to this day. She has “found her happiness in life,” she stated in an interview with the magazine “Gala”.
The 47-year-old sees the fact that she “is enjoying it so much” as a possible reason for her relaxed approach to aging. She pays less attention to her weight than she used to. Also “fitting into a certain dress size” is “no longer important” to her. Rather, she looks at “one or the other dent on the body […] with love”. A look at their self-sufficiency garden helps. “Even the crunchy carrot eventually becomes wrinkled,” jokes Rakers.
From “full honk” to passionate gardener
Speaking of carrots: For a long time, Rakers thought it was impossible to grow your own vegetables and manage a garden. After all, she used to be “a total honk when it came to gardening, keeping chickens and cooking”. However, she found “the idea of freedom and independence” to be “very tempting”. Today, gardening and cooking would be among her greatest passions. The TV presenter also addresses these in her new book “Homefarming: Das Kochbuch”, which will be published by GU Verlag on February 1st.
