How it all started

”It is remarkably easy to forget to look after yourself.” That’s what happened to Kristian Ekström, an experienced health practitioner and the author of this book. After realizing that he was, in fact, suffering from stress-induced burnout leading to fatigue, aches and pains, and poor blood sugar control, he understood he had to find ways to reduce stress and improve his health. Not just for himself and his family and friends, but to better serve and guide his patients and to answer their most common question: ”What can I do to improve my health?​ In this book, you’ll find and practice 32 habits that work.

Timo Malinen DC, Physiotherapist / UK, FIN

"Kristian has done extremely well in creating a source of information which is not only easy to read but can also be used for quick references in managing every day life decisions on your way to Stronger Me. The book is well researched and supported by scientific evidence without making it too complicated  for the non health care professional to read yet giving enough depth for the professional audience to support their work. Interestingly I have already used the book at my clinic as well as recommended it to some of my patients to support their journey."

Anna Bratsberg Nurse & MediYoga practitioner / NOR

"This book gives you easy steps to having a healthier life. While I was reading this book, I started to do small things slightly differently in my life. First, I lifted my computer screen higher up so that my back and neck felt better. Then I decided to spend more time outdoors with my family. I know these are small changes, but they made me feel good. That’s what this book is all about: small steps to get a healthier life. As a nurse and MediYoga instructor, I was also delighted to see that the book helps you realize that everything you do – even your thoughts and emotions – affects your life. I definitely recommend this book to everybody and especially people working in healthcare.

"Should be read by everyone starting on a journey to change their lifestyle! Ekström has taken the genesis of what he learned during his years of working with patients (and himself) into a powerful book that can benefit anyone interested in getting the most out of their life. Exquisitely simple, smart and packed with evidence-based succinct ideas to create and maintain healthy habits. Not only is the book suitable for self-help purposes but also a perfect fit for those helping others reach their lifestyle goals. This book will definitely be in my list of recommended reading for my patients."
