I have been living with the classical goal-setting mind. I love dreamy high goals. They motivate me and give me energy to go beyond my limits. I have always believed that if you don’t know where you are going – how will you get anywhere at all? Like the Alice in Wonderland moment: One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. ”Which road… Läs mer

Yesterday I took a new Swedish record in freediving! Freediving is a strange sport. Sometimes it’s easy, sometimes it’s very hard. My depth wasn’t ”deep” by my normal standards.

One of my best teachers in life is this sport. It’s harsh, putting the truth right in my face.  Every dive is a small adventure. There’s nowhere to hide. If you want to dive deeper it’s all up to you to see it and handle it. Freediving is a strange sport. It’s small enough to not have much research done on training methodology. No one really knows what’s the best way to… Läs mer
