Full Description

"True, authentic well-being is so much deeper than Lululemons and green juice when you look at it through a global lens. It’s about taking it back to the basics and nourishing your soul with the timeless cures that have always mattered most, like your community. And fresh air. And open skies. And a change in perspective. Read on for some of the most genuine wellness philosophies and advice I unearthed on my travels, advice that helped me get through this incredibly dark year—and may even inspire you to book your first trip now that the world is opening back up once again."

"A timely and much-needed reminder that healthy living today doesn't have to be so complicated." —Dan Buettner, author of The Blue Zones

In this insightful, full-color tour of Jamaica, Norway, Hawai'i, Japan, India, and Brazil, journalist Annie Daly shares a diverse array of philosophies, lifestyles, and practices for better living.

Fed up with the commercialization of the wellness industry after working in it for years, Annie embarked on an inspiring adventure through some of the world’s happiest and healthiest cities and villages to find out what we can learn from them. Whether she’s hiking along gorgeous fjords in Norway to see why Norwegians are so dedicated to getting outside, soothing her spirit with Hawaiian salt water cleanses, or learning about the importance Brazilians place on community, Annie combines on-the-ground reporting with heartful personal narrative to share the global lessons, philosophies, and customs that prove that wellness is not about the products—it’s about the way you live your life. 

With candid photography, lesser-known history sidebars, and guidance on how to incorporate these often ancient and always timeless practices into your own lifestyle, this culturally-immersive read invites you to view the world through a different lens and decide what being well means to you.

Destination Wellness is the perfect book for: 

  • Anyone who has embraced hygge and is looking for new lifestyle inspiration 
  • Armchair travelers and staycationers
  • Happiness and inspiration seekers
  • Wellness and travel enthusiasts 
  • History lovers
