Yin Yoga as a painkiller

0530 am. Alarm goes off. Body feels tired, should I stay in bed? No Yin yoga today? Not an option anymore. Seems like I can’t live without it. How did this happen?!? About four months ago when I had a bad period of fibromyalgia due to the cold, damp weather that’s¬†typical for south of Sweden this time of the year, I read an article on Yin Yoga and it’s benefits on¬†fibromyalgia in one of my social media flows. – Aha, […]


Why Zebras don’t get ulcers

The bestseller book about stress, stress-related diseases and coping, Why Zebras don’t get ulcers by Robert M. Spolsky, is as valid today as it was when published some years ago.

It was fun, provoking and very in depth, from many different perspectives, analyzed by two researchers Carl Cederstr√∂m and Andr√© Spicer. One of many interesting statements was that keeping healthy is no […]

The best summer I’ve ever had!

That was the response I got from my son when he was in his mid-teen when asked how his summer break had been. I had been sick and just had not had the strength to go traveling beside short visits for a day or two just a couple of hours driving away from home. So, I felt bad¬†by the end of a summer since we had been at home most of the summer and not traveling as we used to, […]
