Publisher's Summary

An engaging and practical guided tour of the simple and nature-inspired ways that Finns stay happy and healthy - including the powerful concept of sisu, or everyday courage.

Sisu - a kind of everyday courage - is the Finnish approach to well-being that is turning lives around. In this beautiful book - part memoir, part guide - Katja shows how to embrace the daily practices that make Finns among the happiest people in the world. 

Topics include:

  • Movement as medicine: How walking, biking and swimming every day are good for what ails us - and best done outside the confines of a gym
  • Forest therapy: Why there's no substitute for getting out into nature on a regular basis
  • Healthy eating: What the Nordic diet can teach us all about feeding body, mind and soul
  • 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.

Super. Content and just brilliant

Really enjoyed this. I’ve just taken up sea swimming, in the Irish Sea of the North of England and will be following many of the tips

Unfortunately there are a few technical production problems with the later chapters. Please re-edit as the overlaps and phasing in and out stop this from being brilliant. Would love to give five star, but these technical issues should be address.

A super book that was recommended to me and I shall also recommend to others. Brilliant content, put in a beautiful inspiring manner that makes me feel and think positivity - thank you

Inspiring<br />

Most inspiring, especially as I am also a Finn who returned to my roots to find a very different culture. I'm not sure if readers without a Finnish connection would enjoy it as much.
