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.
Kristian Ekström is a practitioner with 16 years of experience in pain management and health promotion. Coaching his clients about stress management to healthier lifestyle has always been an integral part of his work. After obtaining his university degree in chiropractic in the United Kingdom, he has continued his studies by learning from the leading experts in health and medicine, the science of exercise, nutrition, stress and pain. The years of doing clinical work have given him invaluable experience about the human body, pain and the impact of stress. Kristian is a public speaker and an author in the area of his expertise. He has spoken to an audience at the Finnish House of Parliament, and has appeared on national TV and radio shows, and his work has been featured in Finnish magazines and newspapers. He has also taken part in a multidisciplinary team to create an evidence based book about pain for professionals. Kristian is an outdoor enthusiast who loves mountains and seas – especially when trail running, mountain biking, kayaking and ski touring with friends.

Ekstrom provides the reader with a coherent framework to understand the important connections between the mind, body, rest, and food as well as practical guidance on how to embrace health. Drawing upon and in depth analysis of the latest research, years of experience as a health care provider, as well as his own path to health, Ekstrom’s book Stronger Me is a phenomenal resource for anyone interested in becoming healthy. Wherever you might be on your personal journey, Stronger Me is a book you will pick up over and over. What particularly resonates for me is the non-judgmental tone and words of encouragement throughout the book.

"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.

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."
