In 2014, Kari spent a year conducting research and living as a Fulbright scholar in Tromsø, Norway - a place so far above the Arctic Circle that the sun doesn't rise from November to January. Now, blending scientific evidence with cultural insight, Kari provides concrete strategies for learning to see winter as a time of joy and opportunity. In doing so, she helps people learn to find the possibilities in even the most challenging seasons of life.
What allows some people to view winter as wonderful, when so many people around the world see the season as something to dread? And what can their mindset teach us about finding joy and comfort even in dark times? Kari's research, writing, and speaking about winter has helped people all over the world cultivate the mindset that winter is a season to be enjoyed, not endured.
