Today, we seem more obsessed with our health than ever. We go to the gym in huge numbers and eat superfoods; we take power naps and are into mindfulness; our bathrooms are little wellness centres and we seek fresh air in specially allocated green zones. But is this really just a modern trend? As Gelukkig Gezond! shows, we have in fact always been fixated on staying healthy. For many centuries, a healthy lifestyle was understood in the context of six lifestyle factors: climate, diet, exercise, sleeping patterns, detox and emotional balance. This book will look at the history of these factors and how they relate to modern ideas of health.
 
This book is bilingual: all text is available both in Dutch and in English.
