Identity is who you choose to be

God morgon solstrålar!
Idag är en fantastisk morgon och jag är hypad till MAX!
Jag har blivit inkallad till mitt gamla jobb så skall jobba extra idag, så jag är enormt exalterad för detta. Jag har inte jobbat på ett ”vanligt jobb” sen i Somras, så det skall bli kul med ett avbrott i vardagen från allt de ”vanliga” jobben jag gör.

Jag läser en fantastisk bok just nu som heter ”konsten att göra intryck” och tänkte tipsa om den. Den ger värdefulla tips och idéer om vad man egentligen kanske ser som självklart men man reflekterar inte så värst mycket om vad andra tycker och tänker om en själv. Jag är tillexempel en person som försöker att inte bry mig så mycket om vad andra tycker och tänker, men jag har insett att om jag vill sända ut rätt signaler till folk och agera som en trovärdig person behöver jag finslipa på endel grejer med mig själv.
Så OTROLIGT intressant, älskar att bita tag i grejer med mig själv och utvecklas!

Hur tänker du? Tänker du på hur folk uppfattar dig?

Good morning sunshines!
Its a lovely day in Sweden today and I’m HYPED to maximum!
Im going to go to my old work today for the first time sens the summer, so I’m so excited to do something else then my ”normal” work I’m doing right now.

Btw. I want to highlight a book that I’m reading right now that is called ”the art of doing impressions” and I was thinking to recommend it to you. Its a book filled with tips and ideas on a lot of things that is maybe quite obvious, but most of the time we are not reflecting over how people look at us. For me for example I dont care about how people sees me, I just doing my thing and dont want to know. But the book have made me realise that maybe if I want to send out special signals to people that I’m trustable and a good person I need to be aware of what I’m sending out.
I just LOVE challenging my self and see if I can develop and grow in different areas of my self, so LOVE this topic.

How do you thinking? Are you aware and thinking about how other people is judging you?

Working for the ENVIRONMENT!

Djur, natur och vår miljö är något jag verkligen brinner för och vill göra en skillnad inom. Jag är enormt exalterad över flera projekt jag håller i luften för tillfället som har med ämnena att göra.

Jag kopplar ofta ihop hälsa med miljö och ett projekt jag har satt i rullning precis är att jag STOLT nu kan meddela att jag är partner med företaget Ringana. Jag är en av de första i Sverige och skandinavien som är partner med dem.
Detta företag är jag så sjukt imponerad över, de har produkter för hudvård och även lite kosttillskott som är HELT 100% ekologiska, inte testade på djur, veganska och de tänker på miljön på deras flaskor och burkar. Det som är så fantastiskt är att eftersom att de är just 100% tillsatsfria används inte konserveringsmedel, så produkterna håller bara ett visst tag (6 mån oöppnade), så man beställer produkterna direkt från fabrik.
Jag har ett tag nu bara kört oljor på huden men det blir många flaskor och byttor att hålla reda på när man skall göra allt själv. Här kommer det helt tillsatsfritt och utan massa kladd direkt hem till mig.
Det skall bli så ENORMT spännande att se vart detta leder. Skall skriva en längre utläggning senare om hur allt går med detta. Och blir du intresserad av att testa produkterna eller beställa något så säg till så lägger jag upp dig som kund så du kan beställa det du vill ha =)

Ett annat projekt jag hoppas jag kan bli involverad i som också handlar om miljö är Peace parks, har du hört om detta? Det är en organisation från Afrika som jobbar för att skapa nationalparker och skydda naturen, de får folk att gemensamt engagera sig för att bygga upp naturen för att kunna locka till sig turister istället för att alla skall kriga och ha tjuvjakt på utrotningshotade djur.
Vi får se vart detta leder men jag har stora förhoppningar! Ser SÅ fram emot att utveckla något.

Animals and environment is something I have always been really interested of, right now Im working on different projects about this topic that really excites me!
First of all Im in discussion with the organisation Peace Parks in Africa, that is working with local citizens, for preserving and protect their nature. They put up nationalparks so the local people can earn money on tourism instead of exploiting their nature and animals.

My second project I have taken a part of is being a partner of the company Ringana, they sell 100% organic skincare and supplement products. Their products is SO great and I’m one of the first persons that is going to be a partner here in Sweden so it really excites me! The product is free from conservation so the customer need to order it directly from their shop because its so fresh. So it means that if you by the product you need to use it up before 6 months. Isn’t that WONDERFUL?! They have also thought about the environment for the bottles and have a recycling plan involved. 
Im going to investigate this more of course but if you feel already now that you would be interested to try some products out or want to by, let me know and I will set you up as a customer so you can by directly! =)

Did you know? The super root -Turmeric

That turmeric is an AMAZING herb to use in cooking, I dont think anyone have missed.
In the turmeric root the active substance is curcumin, its also that that will give it its yellowish colour (Wilhelmsson, 2011).

It is a fantastic herb to use in your food, some of the reasons is:
– Powerful Antioxidant
– Healing wounds, and prevent bacteria and microbe
– Helping you to break down your food, stimulates the gallbladder to eliminate bile
– Turmeric can prevent cancer cells in a lot of different ways
– Blood- thinning affect, helps strengthen the arteries. Lowering the cholesterol
And ofc. A LOT more!

WAKE UP PEOPLE! – Be the CEO of your health!

Okey..
I have comed to realise that I care TO much about people.
It really hurst me to see friends posting on FB that they have all this crazy conditions regarding their health. All kind of autoimmune diseases, and they are going to the doctors and really think they are going to give them a MAGICAL solution of their condition.
They don’t REALISE that its already in their hands, THEIR FOOD and how they are living.
All the time I see typical lifestyle metabolic problems that the ordinary health care isn’t going to help you with!

Its just to wake up and realise that they are NOT learned to FIX the root cause of your condition regarding metabolic problems! They are there to provide you with medicine towards your symptoms. Im really grateful though to our healthcare when I have a broken leg or I have some other broken part in my body. There they REALLY helps people!
But guys, seriously its SO much money involved with you being sick so you can’t trust all these pills and crap you will be provided.

Our body is MADE to fix it self, if YOU provide it with the right building materia. But if you cut off your organs, still eating the way you do, living the way you are, and taking that pill for that symptom. You are NEVER going to get the health back!
Make a change until you get a chronically disease that can be hard to reverse and heal from.

But PLEASE! You CAN heal! 
You can’t think a thought you have never thought before, so open your eyes and search for other explanations and answers. They ARE out there! Please!

Im sorry I just care to much and Im feeling that I KNOW that these people can get better but they aren’t open for it!.. Maybe some day ❤
If that day comes Im here and I’m open to help you with everything I know. I KNOW you can get better! Just one tips, see also a functional medicine doctor, like here in Sweden we have Cecilia Furst! She is AMAZING with thyroid conditions. And thyroid people is often the root cause of a lot of women – conditions today!

Var din egen CEO

With love

Yawning -The MYTH!

A thing that hit me today when I was at the gym, was that Im always yawning when im there even though im not tierd… I have gone all day and being thinking of this phenomena and I realised that I don’t have a actual answerer on the question. I have learned sense I was little that Im just tired and need to sleep, and that you have a lack of interest of the subject (if you are listening on someone and suddenly starts to yawning). Then I asked my self at the gym “why am I doing this? I don’t feel tired?!”
I texted a friend and we ended up in a really interesting conversation.

So what will a geek as I do if I don’t have the full answerer, well I looking up if there is any studies on the area OF COURSE!

I found an observation study on rats published in BMC Neuroscience that had a totally new knowledge for me. They had measured the temperature with a infra red camera on these rats, before and after a yawn. And have seen the temperature rise in the concha of the rat, 10s before a yawn. Then 10s after the yawning it significantly drops.

They discuss in the study about earlier studies results that the yawning is important for cooling down structures within the head (Eguibar et al., 2017).

Witch gives me a explanation to the scenario at the gym!
-I’m over heated! =)

So it´s not a bad thing to do, as I earlier thought.
I thought I was lazy and my body is refusing to be active. But HEY, im glad I was wrong!

To add to this is that yawning is also connected to circadian rhythm, when light goes to dark this reflex is also occurring.

So next time someone is yawning in your conversation, don’t see it as the person are rude. He or She is just overheated from your conversation, maybe it is a lot to take in so the brain is going in 3000.. 😉

Is it possible to be POSITIVE when something terrible is happening? – My Story!

Earlier today I wrote about positive thinking and I want to re-connect to that topic and tell you about a really personal experience I have had with practicing this.

I begin to tell you my story…
It was Monday, the 10th of August 2009. I was on summer break on Gotland (an Island outside Sweden). My phone is calling early morning time, and my father was in the other end.
He was really upset and scared, he told me that his mother, my grandma was missing and her house has burned down. Also her ex- boyfriend was missing he told me.

I got so scared, I just talked to her for some days ago and now it seems like something had happen to her.
Dad told me that he would call me as soon he would get any more information about the situation.
Some time went and I was so scared, i was on this Island and couldn’t do anything.
And then the call came, that call that SO I clearly still remember today.
-They have found 2 bodys in the house.. My dad told me, he had already jumped in the car and was on his way up to her house. (its a 6 hour drive).
I was devastated, I couldn’t believe this. I booked a ticket home and got home after some day.
My loved grandmother, it was so much questions. -What happened? -Why? -How are we suppose to go through this?

The police went through the case and they founded that she had been murderd by her ex- boyfriend. And in all of this he set the house on fire and killed him self to.
We had no memories left from her, everything got burned to the ground.
How were we suppose to move on?
Every day I was angry and sad, WHY US?

I was in my last year of highschool and I couldn’t focus, I was so blocked by the loss and couldn’t produce a thing.
Then I went on a course the school had, the subject was about thinking positive and handle stress during this last school year. When I today look back at this particular course it clearly saved my entire mental wellness! Thank you Kopparlundsgymnasiet, from the deepest part of my heart!
Without that I would never been thinking as the way I’m doing today.
They made me realised that I could turn this situation to something completely different.
Before I felt like a victim and I punished my self.

I came to realise that the POWER is in my hands on what i will do with this situation, am I going to let it make me feel that all people is useless and I hate everyone in my surroundings? I was really tempted to do..
I made a decision, I would FIGHT my thorough this final year and I would do it for my grannie. I loved her so much and I wanted to stand on my exam day and make her proud!
That was my driving force and it have been stucked to me since then.

The power of a situation is in how YOU decide to tackle it, how you are thinking about it.
I couldn’t change the fact that she had been BRUTALLY murded but I could change the way I reacted to it. I want to tell you this because it is SO many people out there that gets super sensitive and negative about small unnecessary things. Focusing on the things that matters, and pay attention to your thoughts about it. How can YOU turn this to something more positive?

Today I can be grateful for this, without that happening I certainly wouldn’t be there i am today. I wouldn’t have been fighting SO hard to made her proud, and without that fighting I wouldn’t have been experience everything that I have had experience. I would never had learned everything that I have learned until this day, and I would never have had the courage to go to egypt and working in water (I was terrified of water)..
There is SO much things I have done because of that situation, so even though I would LOVE more then everything else in the whole world to have her back, I can’t, and I can’t change the past. But I can change HOW I react to a situation and how I can use it as a strength to move forward in my life.
She would NEVER liked me pause my life and go down in a depression, she would never approved that.

So I will continuing to fight in my life and continuing to make her proud! That is still my motivational force here in life for everything I do. I fight to help people learn how to help them self, so we can build a society of people that isn’t mentally destroyed and want to hurt other people because they are screwed up physically and mentally.

I love you Grandma

Practice Positive Thinking!

Way back in the history of the human evolution a critical and ”negative” thinking was necessary to survive out in the wild.
It could be about life and death if you took the wrong decision, so it was really important to evaluate all the risks that could appear.
So it i´s actually in our nature to think in this way write Angela Ahola in her book (Konsten att göra intryck) ”Translated to: The art of doing impressions”
Though you can built new neurological connections to think more positive todays neurological research shows, and that will do BIG changes in your life. We dont need to be aware of the deadly risks thats out there today in comparing to the past.
So to build a better life for us today we need to practice more on how to create these really important positive connections in our brains that supports positive thinking.

Here is a great practice you can do to building a more positive thinking, I did this through a course in 9th grade and I still use them!

  1. Write the thoughts down! Make it easy to recognise them.
  2. Question them, is this thought I have for example. ”I’m ugly?!” really true? For each negative thought make up 3 questions that talks agains it and question it.
    Example: What do I base this information on? What is it that I’m comparing to? Why should I believe this?
  3. If you realise that your thoughts is un-true, talk them away! Call a friend and tell them what you are feeling, sheet on your thought!

Hope this can help you get some more positive thought! It have clearly helped me!
