Description

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 

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 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 listeners how to embrace the "keep it simple and sensible" daily practices that make Finns one of the happiest populations in the world, year after year.  

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.  

If you've ever wondered if there's a better, simpler way to find happiness and good heath, look no further. The Finns have a word for that, and this empowering audiobook shows us how to achieve it.

I loved this book

I interrupted my reading to take breaks to experience what Katja described. Ice swimming, cycling and walking in nature. See more in less. Her life stories resonate. I am really taking this book to heart. It is to live by.

Great Book

I really enjoyed this book. I was mostly interested in the Sisu discussions. Now I want to go cold water swimming. I even tried taking cold showers :) Now following lots of #finland accounts on Instagram. Sorry if that makes it sound cheesy. It is not, the book is great.

not much to it

It is SIS-ew not See-sue! I cringed each time. A really interesting personal story of someone who moved to Finland - not really what I thought it would be.

Meh

It’s a woman’s journey to find peace in her own life. She uses examples from Finland that were nothing new to me as a North American. I suppose swimming in the winter is “new”, but athletes do cold water soaks to relieve muscle pain and ice fishing is certainly not unheard of. Nothing new for me in this book.

I liked her accent and the performance without that I could have gotten everything this book has to cover in a two page synopsis.
