It's called The Finnish Way: Finding Courage, Wellness, and Happiness through the Power of Sisu (Tarcher Perigee/Penguin Books).

the finnish way of sisu by katja pantzarThe Finnish Way takes readers on a journey to Finland and explores simple and sensible ways to boost well-being inspired by the Nordic lifestyle ranging from winter swimming and cycling to the Nordic diet – all through the special Finnish concept of courage and resilience called sisu.

FROM ANDY: There is something about sisu that is incredibly appealing to me. So much so that after reading Katja's book I started taking cold showers every day simply to inject some sisu into my everyday life. Sisu is easy to manifest in your everyday life, and Katja does a great job revealing that in her book and in our conversation. Yes, you too can benefit from a little sisu in your life. Listen in our conversation for inspiration, ideas, and understanding why.

the good kitchenOne of the best things I’ve ever done is to get prepared, Whole Life Challenge-compliant meals delivered to me during the week. It makes my life so much simpler, eliminates any questions I might have about healthy food for those meals, and reduces the number of decisions I need to make each day.

I highly suggest trying it out. It was a game-changer for me. The Good Kitchen will deliver pre-made, chef prepared, WLC-compliant meals (breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner) right to your front door via FedEx.
