Finns are consistently among the happiest populations in the world, and journalist/recent Finnish transplant Katja Pantzar thinks that has a lot to do with sisu. Roughly defined as "a unique Finnish form of resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity,"sisu involves spending as much time outdoors as possible, challenging your limitations, paring down necessities, and making the best of what life brings. In this friendly and personal guide to the Finnish lifestyle, Pantzar explores the various facets of sisu—from ice swimming to public saunas, from forest therapy to the Nordic diet—consulting with experts; relating her own journey to a healthier, stronger life; and explaining how to incorporate different simple practices into your own daily life, wherever you may live. How nice! (AG)
