U.S. title: The Finnish Way: Finding Courage, Wellness, and Happiness through the Power of Sisu
Find your sisu: the Finnish concept of resilience, grit, and determination – part memoir, part guidance.
Forget hygge–it’s time to blow out the candles and get out into the world! Journalist Katja Pantzar did just that, taking the huge leap to move from North America to the remote Nordic country of Finland. What she discovered there transformed her body, mind and spirit. In this engaging and practical guide, she shows readers how to embrace the “keep it simple and sensible” daily practices with the power of sisu that make Finns one of the happiest populations in the world, year after year.
Topics include winter swimming, movement as medicine, forest therapy, healthy eating and the Nordic diet, and the gift of sisu: Why Finns embrace a special form of courage, grit and determination as a national virtue – and how anyone can dig deeper to survive and thrive through tough times.
In Finding Sisu discover the ways in which you too can integrate this age-old philosophy of hope and perseverance into your life, wherever you are in the world, whatever challenges you may face.
Find your courage. Find your grit. Find your sisu.
