Overview

Slow down and savor the sweet life with these ideas from around the world.

Implement the Scandinavian law of jante - -live simply, be humble, and don't be wasteful.  Adopt the Portuguese approach to eating slowly and deliberately.

Sweep your partner away with an over-the-top Italian romance. Learn the Cuban art of setting loving limits on children.

Is stress a necessary part of life? How do people in many other countries stay so slim?  Do other cultures share our addiction to romance and finding the “perfect partner”? Do we live to work or work to live? The Sweet Life has the answers.

Join author William Sinunu as he travels the world and takes us on a front-seat, uncharted tour of the practices and beliefs of many different cultures. In these 101 inspiring vignettes, he learns how to better appreciate life, by unlocking the world’s best advice on love, work, health, raising children, living more simply, and even coping with grief.

As Sinunu searches for ways to improve his life during his travels, he discovers how:

·        the French spice up their sex lives with fantasy

·        the Jamaicans enjoy each moment

·        the Egyptians plan reasonable food portions

·        the Turks relax after a stressful day

·        and much more.

The Sweet Life proves that connecting more deeply with those we love, taking better care of our bodies and souls, and living more fully and passionately in the present is easier than we may think.
