A Way of living
The Mediterranean is one of the cleanest, nicest, happiest and healthiest place to live on Earth, thanks to a balanced lifestyle, beautiful nature and exceptional climate.
SPEND TIME WITH FAMILY
Family plays an important role for Mediterraneans. It's common that several generations share and live in one household. Older family members stay in close touch with the loved ones and are not brought into nursing homes, where they are likely to suffer from depression.
With their open minded and talkative personality, Mediterranean people spend most of their time outdoors. Going out with friends or family, enjoying a cool beer and something small to eat is the way of life.
BE ACTIVE AND RELAX
With pleasant temperatures all year round there is every reason to spend as much time possible outside in nature. A run at the beach in the morning, hiking in the beautiful countryside or a walk to the market are just normal routine for the people here in the Mediterranean. You don't have to hit the gym as movement in any way is heart healthy.
The simplest pleasures of life, letting the sun shine on your face, enjoying the sea breeze, laughing and relaxing with friends are surely very high on on the list for wellbeing. Live well, laugh often & love more.
People in the Mediterranean know that worrying doesn't fix problems. They are hard working, enjoy life and don't take things too seriously. Living a less materialistic lifestyle with less rushing and less self-inflicted stress are the main reasons for happiness and wellbeing. You deserve to be happy and it wouldn’t be right to let stress get in the way.
“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.” Aristotle
