Sisu sorta means courage, determination, and integrity but it’s basically impossible to translate perfectly into English. 
In this episode Joanna Nylund shares some of the characteristics and behaviors of Finnish people. I hope you, like myself, find yourself wanting to develop and mimic these ideals in your own life. Plus, I’m like 90-something percent Finnish so I really found myself relating to a lot of the traits Finnish people seem to have!
Take a listen to learn about sisu, saunas, ice swimming, the importance of the outdoors, and even why you don’t have to fill every minute of a social gathering with chit chat!
