A travel and lifestyle journalist in New York, Annie Daly became disillusioned with the wellness industry in America, noting that "despite shelling out more and more cash on all things wellness…we're not actually any healthier today than we were in the past."
So she embarked on a trip around the world, traveling to countries that embrace markedly different philosophies on the best ways to live. In this breezy guidebook, Daly interviews hundreds of international experts and chronicles her own adventures: discovering, for example, how the Rastafari plant-based lifestyle grew out of resistance to oppression in Jamaica, practicing the blood-pumping (sometimes frigid) Norwegian outdoor lifestyle knows as friluftsliv
, and experiencing life-changing Ayurvedic treatments in India. Enhanced with candid color photos, Destination Wellness
invites readers to find their own worldly wise paths to health and happiness. (AG)
