to be a Cebra

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, […]

5 tips leading to success

The Key to Success is to be You. Simple as that but far from easily managed. So far in life, no matter what area that I have moved into (and there has been quite a few), I always end up with one word that it all seems to come down to Empowerment. Being empowered, and the way I pragmatically use it “to lead oneself from one’s own set of values without harming others”. I know, it’s a broad and in-depth […]

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.

Disconnect from others and connect to yourself

A couple of months ago I ran into a colleague of mine at the Startup-dojo at the Tech hub FooCafé in Malmö, Sweden. While talking about my book “I’m a Cebra on the digitized savanna – How to succeed in the digitized work life”, and me mentioning it being about leadership, creativity, and health, my colleague excitedly started to talk about Muse Headband that he had supported in a Kickstarter-campaign. The headband measures your brain activity when meditating using the app that it comes with. Some days […]

The Wellnes Syndrome and The Sell

The Wellness Syndrome and The Sell are books that caught my eye last Friday when visiting the local library. Both were books that I for a while had planned to read so it was perfect! I checked them out at the desk and spent all Saturday on the beach reading The Wellness Syndrome. It was fun, provoking and very in depth, from many different perspectives, analyzed by two researchers Carl Cederström and André Spicer. One of many interesting statements was that keeping healthy is no […]

Welcome to the herd of Cebras!

Have you ever seen a zebra trying to or pretending to be a lion? Do you want a Zebra to be a lion? Of course, you haven’t seen that and why should they become lions?We accept that they are just perfect the way they are, liked them differently and serve different purposes in nature. And that is the same with me and you. We are just different and perfect just the way we are. So why do we try to […]
