Earlier this fall I attended a two-day massage course together with my mother at Axelsons in Stockholm. Apart from being a great opportunity to spend some quality time together, I’ve also felt an urge to learn more about wellness lately. I’ve always been fascinated by the way that massage therapists, yoga teachers and other people from the wellness industry view life – how positive and genuine they are. So apart from learning a new skill, my aim with attending the course was also to gain more of this positive perspective.
I had an interesting discussion with Markus Christiansson at Arbetsförmedlingen (Swedish public employment office) the other day, about the future of work. How the rise of automatization, machine learning and AI will replace jobs, but also why that is not a problem.
