The Finnish Way
The Finnish Way: Finding Courage, Wellness, and Happiness Through the Power of Sisu | Katja Pantzar
18 posts | 7 read | 2 reading | 26 to read
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 readers 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 book shows us how to achieve it.

I throughly enjoyed this book. I loved reading about the Finnish culture and why jumping into freezing water for 30 seconds in actually good for you.

4/5💚s

As soon as I saw this book I had to adopt it. In it I found a sense of home, deeper understanding of my heritage, a bit of nostalgia, and inspiration to make some changes and chase better well-being. I‘d recommend this to anyone! Read a full review as applied to #mentalhealth & #wellbeing via the link!

That moment when the book you‘re reading mentions a book you bought on the same day you bought the book you‘re reading. 😂

I was gonna read Ethics 101 and actually got 12 pages in but I think I need to put that on hold to read The Finnish Way because I am just too excited. 😁

Going to Barnes & Noble for my weekly self-care drink, snack, & browse when I found this gem! 😍 I IMMEDIATELY had to adopt it!!!

Sisu is such a big part of my life. It‘s gotten me through many an obstacle. But there is so much more I could learn and share with my clients. I do strongly believe in Sisu I named my counseling business in its honor (Sisu Lumi Counseling).

I cannot wait to read this and share it with clients, litsy, and everyone!!!
