JOYFUL YOU: THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS IN ITALY

 

Happiness, the Holy Grail of human life. 

In our hyper-connected world, where we are often overwhelmed by a stressful routine and thousands of digital messages, we may find ourselves chasing happiness, yet hardly reaching it. 

Happiness is generally being conceived as a vague – and sometimes even frivolous- concept, but it is crucial for everybody’s quality of life. That’s why in recent years a new “Science of Happiness” emerged, showing how multifaceted the benefits of cultivating happiness can be. Scientific studies have proven that when we are happy we are more likely to live longer lives, to have healthier bodies, to be more creative, and have stronger relationships.

So, how can we achieve happiness? 

Wishful thinking is not enough. A conscious happiness-focused approach is needed. We know that the state of happiness is determined by neurochemical mediators and hormones that can be balanced through food and physical activity, so, serotonin-boosting foods and fitness play a great part in this approach.

Immersed in the beauty of the Puglian landscape, embark on a regenerating personal journey to break free from stressful everyday routines and reconnect with your own happiness. 

An extraordinary team of therapists-artists, musicians, and local dancers will guide you through poetic experiences based on the principles of the “Science of Happiness” and will create personalised paths according to your specific desires and needs.

Everything is calibrated to cuddle, soften, and soothe you with treatments inspired by the ancient and authentic land of Puglia, the pure beauty of its olive trees and the clean power of its sea breeze.

You will engage in fitness and conviviality, to share with others the joy and positive feelings of open-air activities under the guidance of highly qualified personal trainers. The main goal is to support the body in the production of happiness hormones and neurotransmitters such as endorphins, oxytocin, serotonin and dopamine, to develop a healthy balance between body and mind.

Fun is also a key element to reduce stress and release oxytocin. Enjoy sessions with the “Maestro della Risata”, a sort of “Laughter Teacher”. Inspired by the traditional roots of popular music, he applies the science-based theories of laughter through theatre, dance, and music classes.

Finally, indulge in a nutrition plan that is customized based on low-processed and healthy food rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients.

So, embark on a wonderful journey to re-establish your internal compass and reconnect with your own happiness while discovering a breathtaking Italian region.
