Is it possible to enjoy work?

During the years when I worked in medical research I was very stressed about work. Although working on interesting topics with interesting people the academic environment just wasn't for me. I often found myself putting off going to bed because I knew the next thing I would do was to wake up and go to work. I was often stressed about some experiments that didn't work, equipment that didn't work, funding applications and approaching deadlines and had trouble sleeping.

Since I started my company (although being an entrepreneur can be stressful in many ways) I really enjoy every day I work. I get to write, photograph, meet inspiring and energetic people and since starting working with Sauna Yoga exercising is also part of my job. When I go to bed in the evening I look forward to my morning coffee and the day ahead. If I ever have problems sleeping it is most likely because I am excited about something, not stressed. And anyway, after training Sauna Yoga I generally sleep like a baby:)

Guest Post: Health benefits of Aloe Vera (in Swedish)

Today I will publish the second guest post on the topic of natural health products. My good friend Linnéa Althén is talking about Aloe Vera, a natural product that I use myself.

Thank you for an interesting and informative text Linnéa!


Kort och gott om Aloe Vera

Som hälsoförespråkare har jag fått förfrågan att skriva lite kort om Aloe Vera, vilket jag brinner för.

Denna fantastiska grönsak har ju använts i 1000-tals år, självaste Cleopatra sägs ha badat i det. Romarna avbildades gärna med en Aloe Vera växt i bakgrunden som symbol för hälsa. Indianerna började tidigt att använda det mot brännskador orsakade av främst solen. Ja historierna är många.

Själv kom jag i kontakt med Aloe Vera då jag plötsligt drabbades av blödande magsår och inte blev hjälpt av västerländsk medicin. Läste på och kom över Aloe Vera drycker av olika märken genom hälsokosten men blev inte bättre på detta. Slutligen snubblade jag över en geléliknande dryck där volymprocenten på nära 97 % ekologisk Aloe Vera verkade lovande, och jag provade. Och blev frisk på två veckor. Och har aldrig återinsjuknat.

Slutsatsen jag alltså kan dra av detta är att just volymprocenten av Aloe Vera jag fick i mig har betydelse, och sannolikt även kvalitén. Så rent, färskt och biodynamiskt odlat som möjligt.

Aloe Vera verkar nämligen vara adaptogen, d.v.s. att den anpassar sig efter värdens behov. Neutraliserar pH värdet i kroppen eftersom att vi genom vår livsstil och kostintag försurar kroppen. Detta i sin tur verkar hämma nedbrytning och upptag av viktiga näringsämnen. Alltså kan vi inte tillgodogöra oss allt vi intar om vi är för sura.

Hud och slemhinnor verkar ÄLSKA Aloe Vera, och ökar bevisligen läknings effekt med 7 ggr och även kollagenproduktionen i huden, och leder alltså till ökad elasticitet i huden.

Om magen mår bra, mår även själen bra heter det visst. Stora delar av immunförsvaret sitter ju just i magen:)

Min ena dotter har genom åren haft stora problem med atopiska eksem, där användandet av kortisonkrämer har varit riklig. Slutligen tröttnade vi på detta, och några veckor efter att hon börjat med en mindre dos Aloe Vera Gel varje morgon, samt insmörjning med Aloe Vera Gelly vid uppblossandet av eksem, har vi faktiskt lyckats hålla nere eksemen nästintill helt.

Det verkar som att även sjukvården i Sverige är på god väg att öppna upp för användandet av Aloe Vera, men eftersom man inte kan ta patent på en växt, arbetar man inte vidare med det, förutom att tillföra det i vissa produkter, dock i så låga koncentrationer att dess verkan kan ifrågasättas.

Men man börjar försiktigt ana en ljusning, kanske i takt med att samhället försöker hitta alternativa vägar till ett bättre mående. Och till en renare värld.

Yogurt Pannacotta with Seasonal Fruit


On the weekend I picked the last of our plums. There weren't many left, not enough to do anything with. So to make a fruit compote for my yogurt pannacotta I took out some of the frozen summer cherries we still had left.


Yogurt Pannacotta with Seasonal Fruit

2 gelatin sheets
300 ml cream
50 ml sugar
1,5 ml Greek yogurt or similar

A bowl of fruit
sugar (optional)


Place the gelatin sheets in water for about 5 minutes.

Heat up the cream and sugar in a pan. Take off the heat.

Add the gelatin and yogurt to the cream. Mix until smooth.

Pour into serving bowls or glasses. Place in the fridge for at least a couple of hours.

To make the fruit compote, heat up the fruit in a pan and let simmer until most of the liquid is gone. If you want some extra sweetness add some sugar.

Let the fruit compote cool and scoop out on top of the solid pannacotta.

What I have been up to

Since the summer holiday ended I have had a few busy weeks.

I have started to work with Sauna Yoga International here in Sweden, something I am very happy with and excited about. I have translated the Sauna Yoga web page to Swedish. The information is already available in Finnish, German and English.

If you happen to find yourself in the Ystad area you will be able to train Sauna Yoga with me during the autumn at Ystad Saltsjöbad on Satuday afternoons at 16.00 and 17.00 or at Ystads Marina and Abbekås Golfklubb upon request. Hopefully there will be more locations eventually and more instructors! You can follow the development on the Facebook page: Sauna Yoga Sverige

On the weekend Radio P4 Extra did an interview with me about Sauna Yoga. You can listen to it here:  Yoga i bastu? Nya trenden från Finland (1 h and 47 min into the program).

I have also finished the second book in my series of travel books for children: Oli och Laia reser till London. You can order it from various on line bookshops and it will soon also be available as an e-book.



Last week there was an article about me in regards to my writing in the Skurups Lokaltidning: Skrivandet blev en vändning, page 6.

That was a lot of information:) I wish you all a lovely work week!

Disconected and refreshed

During the summer we went on a two-week road trip around the south of Sweden. I have been so busy since I got back that I haven't even transferred the pictures until now... And with the weather changing so quickly the hot summer days certainly feel far away already.

Anyway, during our travels we left the phones, Internet, TV and even radio/music off. We just spent time together and enjoyed the beautiful nature and listened to all its sounds. It was wonderful! Although we had quite a hectic schedule, catching up with friends and family and doing lots of stuff (mainly swimming in different places) we felt super relaxed and refreshed when we got back. My batteries were fully recharged and I can still feel that some of the energy has stayed in my system, hopefully taking me a fair bit into the approaching dark autumn.

Swiss Chocolate & Banana Muffins

It feels like summer was  here one day and the next autumn had arrived. Yesterday we huddled up infront of the fire place making good use of the generous gifts our friends had brought us from Switzerland. We made cheese fondue and muffins with Swiss chocolate and bananas.

Swiss Chocolate & Banana Muffins
400 ml flour
200 ml sugar
4 teaspoons of baking powder
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
1 egg
300 ml milk
100 ml olive oil
1-2 bananas, sliced
Swiss milk chocolate (or other)

Mix the dry and wet ingredients separately. Then combine them together.

Scoop the dough into muffin forms that has 2-3 banana slices in the bottom.

Place a piece of chocolate on top.

Bake in the oven at 175 degrees Celsius for about 15 minutes or until brownish on top.

It started with a bang

My first week of work after the summer holiday started with a bang. Literally. Thunder, lightening and heavy rain. And some magic in the sky:)



I hope you have all had a lovely summer too!
