How’s Life in Sweden?

By and large, Sweden performs great over the diverse prosperity/well-being measurements with respect to other OECD nations. In 2016. the business rate was one of the most astounding in the OECD, and just 1 percent of representatives of Sweden normally worked extended periods of time, the second least offer in the OECD. Be that as it may, the family unit net balanced extra cash and profit are simply underneath OECD normal dimensions. Regarding instruction and aptitudes, 83 percent of the grown-up working-age populace have achieved no less than upper optional training, contrasted with the OECD normal of 75 percent, while both grown-up abilities and understudies’ subjective aptitudes likewise surpass the OECD normal. Civic commitment and administration, evaluated as far as voter turnout and the level of grown-ups who feel they have a state in what the legislature does, are in the top third of the OECD. Sweden’s natural quality and wellbeing status are additionally great, and life fulfillment was among the most astounding in the OECD in 2013.

I had a vision of the first backpack addressing posture in the world, I borrowed a Virgin Business Startup Plan template, and this is who God paired me up with as my Swedish Posture Team.

One day not so long ago, I came up with an idea which I saw Colonel Baxter who had invented a knapsack in 1843 and what I loved about this knapsack was how it not only was used for carrying but it also addressed the soldiers posture during the Civil War. It not only addressed posture but it was used for other means besides just carrying and this is when I came up with an idea for a backpack which would be the first of its kind in the world addressing posture.

I wanted my vision to be something not only for the world’s posture but where I could use also myself because I have nerve pain when my posture is not straight and was born with scoliosis and had a fusion in 2004 which has made me now have to be extra careful when positioning my range of motion.

May I introduce to you my Swedish Posture team where Emma Pihl, is CEO & Founder. Swedish Posture mission statement is: “A bad posture has a negative effect on your health. It can lead to pain in back and shoulders, a tight respiratory system and other side effects. Let us at Swedish Posture guide you and help you to improve your posture, activate your muscles and to feel better!”

Note: This chart shows Sweden’s relative strengths and weaknesses in well-being when compared with other OECD countries. For both positive and negative indicators (such as homicides, marked with an **). Longer bars always indicate better outcomes (i.e. higher well-being), whereas shorter bars always indicate worse outcomes (i.e. lower well-being). If data are missing for any given indicator, the relevant segment of the circle as shaded in white. Additional information, including the data used in this country note, can be found @
