Exorcising the Evil Spirit of Self-Doubt

  Committing to an idea you don’t know will work or not is simply put, terrifying. You can do all the market research, read everything there is to read and pray to all available Gods there are but nothing can ever guarantee you will be successful. Ultimately investing in your own idea is all about … Continue reading Exorcising the Evil Spirit of Self-Doubt

Ok so I’m stressed, now what?

A few years ago I repeatedly went to the doctor for a variety of smaller issues. In and of themselves they were not really a big deal but I guess my overall feeling was that something was a bit off. The doctors never found anything wrong with me. The explanation I got was always a … Continue reading Ok so I’m stressed, now what?

Jaha men hur botar jag stress då?

Under ett par år i mitt liv sökte jag då och då till vårdcentralen för diverse åkommor. Det kunde vara trötthet, en förkylning som aldrig gick över, feber som kom och gick. Mina prover visade aldrig på något, normala blodvärden, ingen direkt vitaminbrist, kanske lite högt blodtryck men fortfarande inom normalspannet. Jag fick alltid traska … Continue reading Jaha men hur botar jag stress då?

A new Circle Square Life

In January 2015 I found out that decisions had been made that would drastically change the circumstances of my life. Our family business, that I had worked for over the past 10 years, were up for sale. Then four months of  keeping a huge secret from beloved colleagues and some of my most treasured friends … Continue reading A new Circle Square Life

Just Breathe through it

Generally when I hear someone say “just breathe through it” I want to punch that person in the face. Lately I have however come to see some merit in that advice. Or rather I am slowly accepting that yoga can have some real mental health benefits. I haven’t gotten a hang of the whole breathing … Continue reading Just Breathe through it

What do you do when there is nothing you can do?

To see life slowly slip through the fingers of someone you love, to see joy and laughter be replaced by worry or indifference is painful and trying for both your heart and your patience. When your next of kin suffer from mental illness and you stand helplessly by their side... Few things are as painful. … Continue reading What do you do when there is nothing you can do?

Vad gör man när man ingenting kan göra?

Att se sina föräldrar, sin partner, syskon eller bästa vänner kämpa med psykisk ohälsa är utmanande för både hjärtat och tålamodet. Det finns få tillfällen då du känner dig så hjälplös som när du ser livets glädje rinna ur händerna på någon du står nära. Kanske står ni på samma eller liknande plats i livet, … Continue reading Vad gör man när man ingenting kan göra?

Thoughts and reflections from my month in Berlin

My first month as a blogger done! It's been great so far but not without challenges. I’ve spent a month in Berlin getting my blog started. I’ve successfully, in my opinion, made the transition from no alarms and no calendar to waking up every day (not every day) at a set time to purposefully work … Continue reading Thoughts and reflections from my month in Berlin

Psykisk ohälsa: En sammanfattning

Stigmat kring psykisk ohälsa förklaras ibland med att vi är rädda för personer med psykisk ohälsa. Många tror att personer med psykisk ohälsa är oberäkneliga och farliga. Inte sällan för att media tenderat att presentera ett närmast deterministisk orsaksförhållande mellan psykisk ohälsa och våldsbrott. Detta är naturligtvis felaktigt, det finns inget sådant kausalt samband mellan … Continue reading Psykisk ohälsa: En sammanfattning
