Description


After you've cultivated the coziness of the Danes (hygge) and achieved the Swedish way of moderation (lagom), then what's next? How about developing your Sisu -- an "untranslatable" Finnish term referring to a mixture of courage, resilience, grit, tenacity, and perseverance. It's a trait that has shaped not just the fate of a nation but continues to be a guiding principle for how Finns live their daily lives. Now it can offer lessons to us all, helping us to:

  • discover our inner strength
  • resolve conflicts at work and home
  • raise kind and resilient children
  • achieve our fitness goals
  • fight for what we believe in
And much more!
