Four Nordic concepts to help you through Covid-19

Our lives have changed dramatically – maybe forever. We have had to adjust to many changes due to Covid. Satu is introducing four fairly well known Nordic concepts that could be helpful for creating a calmer mindset for these turbulent times. 

You will  learn:

  • About SISU which is a certain inner strength that Finns have that creates an action-oriented mindset. How anyone can develop SISU into your own life.
  • About LAGOM which is a Swedish lifestyle philosophy based on having “Not too much, not too little. Just right.” How you can live better with less and practice LAGOM to create a happier life.
  • About FIKA, a Swedish Institution that is a mini – break in a day. Often meaning a coffee break with a cinnamon bun. How you can create FIKA moments,” little escapes” in your day. 
  • About Danish concept of having a special cozy feeling or a moment of HYGGE. How you can create simple HYGGE moments and make your everyday life more enjoyable.
