"Stopped working, became healthier and got better economy."

"When fyrabarnsmamman Åsa Axelsson, 50, suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome was the solution to jump out of the job as a teacher."

"– Now we are living on a salary. It goes really well. We have a better economy, " she says."

"In the book ”I am leaving the rat race,” she says about the economic experiment."

"if you Dream about to jump out of the rat race and stop lönearbeta to escape the stress and have a higher quality of life?"

"It is what the teacher Åsa Axelsson, 50, in Umeå did."

"After four kids, three moves, two husrenoveringar, a teaching job and a mother who died it became too much of Åsa, as a 47-year-old was hit by chronic fatigue syndrome."

"She had a variety of symptoms of ill – health- heartburn, headache, migraine, käksmärta, tandgnissel, osteoarthritis, fatigue, tennis elbow, cough, sleep problems, depression, anxiety, and orkeslöshet."

"Was on sick leave in two years"

"In the two years she was on sick leave. Then she chose to go down in working hours to 25 per cent."

"– Man says that women need to get out in the work to fulfill themselves. But I have never felt so bad as the last 20 years of this enormous congestion, " says Åsa Axelsson."

"She says that she never felt as good as when she was on maternity leave."

"– that was The reason why I wanted to have four children, it was my happiest time."

"In her debut book, ”I'm leaving the rat race – a life without paid work” (Norstedts förlag) says Åsa Axelsson on the family's economic experiment."

"During the sjuktiden she was afraid to be utförsäkrad. She asked her husband if they could survive on one salary."

"– My husband replied: ”No, it will never go economically."

"Was this the way it must be?"

"Åsa Axelsson decided to investigate if the family could survive on one salary. She began to calculate how much they could save on various expenses in a year. Since the misuse of the family to the work."

"They drank half as much milk, ate porridge for lunch, pulled into frisörbesök, shoes, clothing, ice cream, holidays, furniture, food, gifts, shopping, christmas, activities, renovations."

"Then on the electricity, water, heating, lights, car, mortgage payments."

"They took a tenant in the villa, an exchange student for 3 000 dollars a month."

"Elizabeth started picking of the berries in the garden, jam, safta, bake bread, cook from scratch, mend, patch, make your own Bregott and got own odlingslott."

"She calls it the ”snålregimen”."

"When she after a year was able to report the savings they ended up on the breathtaking 333 333 sek. More than she had in take-home pay."

"– I started to think that why should we have an extra income, when we do a?"

"More leisure time for money"

"In the book she says ”if ekorrhjulsavhoppsexperimentet” and about how the family bar."

"– the Book is a kind of manual of how to get the money last, step for step. I have spent the money to get more leisure time, " says Åsa Axelsson."

"Why did you write the book?"

" I wanted to share with you my discovery, that it is actually possible to live in a different way than with a hundred per cent of wage labor for both. We would be able to work less."

"the Book is strong konsumtionskritisk. It shows how much one can reduce their consumption and switch out the earned capital for less labor and more leisure time."

"It is at the same time, a medelklassperspektiv she portrays."

"– this is something that only the privileged can do, so it is. My book chronicles a medelklasskvinna trying to find a way to create balance in everyday life. This way, I think, is superior from the environmental perspective, " says Åsa Axelsson."

"at the same time, can the message appear as retrograde and anti-feminist. For it is she – the woman – who want to stay home. Her husband does not want to."

"Women back to the stove?"

"She prefers a part-sufficiency."

"Is it a return of women to the home you are advocating?"

"– So here I am thinking: we shall not back to the 50's or 60's, but we are going forward to something new. I have really tried to balance this stress, tried yoga, a splint, part time, full time, nanny, cleaning help, but nothing has been good, " says Åsa Axelsson."

"– Then I tried this and for me it was really good. I have felt really harmonious and, above all, healthy for experimentåret."

"last summer, she took a leave of absence to write the book. This time it's for real. The income is zero."

"– Now I live just as I teach in the book, for far less money than before. And it works actually. It has gone really well."

"She has figured out that the family need 21 000 crowns net a month to clear itself."

"What are the merits of pause from wage labor?"

"– It is primarily the health benefits. The amazing thing about this economic experiment was that I got rid of all the symptoms except artrosskadan in the jaw."

"Can you think of to start working as a teacher again?"

"– Yes, if I get reasonable working conditions and get to work just enough."

"What happens when the kids have flown out?"

" I absolutely believe that I will want to do something then. It is obvious that I can't stand at home and bake bread for just me and my husband. It would of course be ridiculous."

"You got a better economy, despite a salary of less?"

" Yes. Before, we consumed quickly up everything we earned. We did, for example, a köksrenovering for 130 000 sek. It was half of my annual income."

"But this way makes you economically dependent on your husband."

" Yes. I just waited for the question. I have thought through everything, " says Åsa Axelsson."

"She says that she and her husband signed was his life insurance if any of them would die. They also inherit the house after each other. And in a divorce would Åsa sell the house, move to a smaller apartment and start working gene."

"Without income you lose, however, its SGI, sickness benefit generating income. Also, the pension to deteriorate."

"Scares you to be fattigpensionär?"

"– Well, it does, of course. But you can solve it in different ways. My husband has transferred his premium pension to me."

"What do you say to those who might interpret your ideas as reactionary and misogynistic?"

"– Then they may well interpret it that way. I can't say that I want to be a housewife the rest of my life. But what I can say is that I really measure svindåligt the last 20 years. I felt almost no joy in life anymore. Then it does not matter what I get for pension."

"In what way is this to go forward, you mean, to become like a housewife again?"

"– If one can think away the sex and see this as the economic experiment that I'm talking about, so it is less paid work and more time and quality of life that I want up, " she says."

"The house which the family now live in – the third, they neglected to renovate."

"– Now only we live in our house with 70-talskök, " says Åsa Axelsson and smiles."

"Family: Husband, 52, and four children. Three daughters, who are 10, 13 and 16-year-old and a 19-year-old son."

"So saved Åsa and family 300 000 sek in a year."

"Åsa Axelsson established the 41 items of the savings."

"TOTAL SAVINGS IN A YEAR: 333 333 kronor."
