• How do you incorporate your passion for the outdoors into your daily life?

Kajsa: I live in the northern part of Sweden, in a small mountain village. Every day, I'll try to go for a run or hike. I also love to go for a ride on my road bike or mountain bike. During winter time, I try to ski almost every day—it can be a short lap in the resort during lunch or an evening tour from my backyard up to the closest mountain peak. Even on the most hectic business days, I try to find time to spend outdoors since it gives me a lot of energy to work longer days. 

Sigrid: I live in the city, so I’m not as lucky as Kajsa when it comes to ways to spend time outdoors. But I take my dog for daily walks in the Stockholm archipelago. I especially love the morning walks. It’s such a great way to start the day. I also do a daily yoga practice which really helps me stay focused and grounded in my daily life. On the weekends, I love to go to one of the forests that are close to Stockholm and go for a run.

• What's one self-care habit that has made a noticeable difference in how you feel?

Kajsa: We both love connecting with nature, and one of our most important self-care practices is our daily walks in nature with our dogs. Spending time with animals and nature is a perfect way to find focus and stay present in the moment. Especially when running a business, it’s essential to find ways to re-connect and stay grounded.

Sigrid: I love doing yoga and try to do it every day. It’s the best way for me to reconnect with myself, de-stress, and get some exercise at the same time. I’ve had periods in my life when I’ve had issues with stress, and yoga has been a massive help for me.

• Can you share your favorite tips for reapplying sunscreen throughout the day?

Kajsa: I always bring the UV Stick wherever I go. It’s the perfect way to re-apply sunscreen during the day, and it fits in every pocket and works over makeup as well.

Sigrid: The UV stick is great! I like to use it for re-application around the eyes and nose. If you’re wearing makeup, a tip is to easily re-apply the face cream using a makeup sponge. This way, your makeup stays in place, but you also get an added layer of protection at the same time. Generally, I don’t use makeup in my everyday life, so applying SPF is not an issue for me. I always keep a bottle in my bag or on my desk as a reminder to re-apply.
