In Search of Happiness: Sweden

We venture into the cold land of Sweden to discover the country’s wellness virtues. Although Sweden is well-known for its traditional saunas and massaging techniques, it also is the hub of more modern practices such as luminotherapy and Swedish Gym. In addition, Swedish people treasure their cultural and natural heritage. While some have sustained a lifestyle connected to the nature that surrounds them, others have developed environmentally-conscious structures and activities in urban centers, as exemplified by the city of Malmö. But above all, Swedish happiness is rooted in generosity and warmth.

Other episodes include India, Brazil, Thailand, Bali, Morocco and California.
