Defined as a particular kind of resilience and bravery, sisu is the Finnish approach to well-being that is turning lives around. Raised in Canada with stints in New Zealand and the UK, writer Katja Pantzar returned to Finland, the place of her birth, where she discovered the key to living well was in living courageously and with integrity. Cultivating sisu through simple, functional exercise, a Nordic diet, and spending time outside in space, water, silence and nature, her physical and mental stamina grew; her anxieties, fatigue and pain left behind in the sea. 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."@en ;
