What Italians can teach us about living well:
Living well is more than just having lots of money.
It is a state of mind.
And living well is something we all strive for.
A contented life, a happy life, a life that has balance.
Sounds interesting doesn’t it.
But how to achieve it?
For guidance look no further no than Italy.
Italy is a beautiful place.
If you’ve never been you should go.
It will teach you some important lessons about life that will carry you in good stead.
It is a world all of its own.
Italians know how to enjoy life.
They enjoy life to the fullest.
And it is evident on so many levels.
And let’s face it – where in the world can you chill out over something as simple as a great cup of coffee, or some wine with friends, or enjoy a simple rustic meal in a small restaurant?
Of all the places in the world we have visited Italy beats them all.
And it doesn’t matter whether you are in Rome, Naples or another major city or a small village in Tuscany.
Italy is special.
And here is but one example – the Italian habit of shutting up shop for a good few hours over lunch is worth considering. It means everyone has time to eat a decent meal, and even have a little snooze, before returning to work refreshed and raring to go. We think it’s very civilized and beneficial for a sense of wellbeing.
