This is a 23 minute calm and guided meditation to help you relax and calm your nervous system, connect to your breath, and set an intention. There is no background music or sounds and there is an additional 45 seconds for silence after the session ends, so that you can integrate back slowly. No intro or outdo in this episode for that reason either to not startle your nervous system when it is relaxed.
In tough times, your parasympathetic nervous system is an ally you want to turn to. Meditation and awareness of breath are some tools to activate it. They have helped me immensely on my own journey, when I needed to connect to my sisu and inner fortitude.
Please give some stars to help others find the show if you liked it. Also, feel free to give feedback on this meditation as it was the first I recorded. What worked, what didn't, and if you would like maybe a shorter version or something else. You can reach me via sisulab.com, Instagram or at facebook.com/inspiresisu
With sisu... and smiles!
Find more about sisu at www.sisulab.com or check my book 'Gentle Power: A Revolution in How We Think, Lead, and Succeed Using the Finnish Art of Sisu' (2023).
Sisu is a reserve of inner strength but it is also a way for us to know ourselves and impact the world in a positive way. Cultivating these reserves of inner strength starts with self-care and continues through self-inquiry. its power then extends to the world through our inspired acts of deep courage and compassion.
