The Danes may have their hygge and the Norwegians their back to the land culture, but the Swedes have 'lagom': an even-keeled approach to a life of balance. Dr Bertil Marklund - a doctor and researcher at the Gothenburg University with over forty years of experience - provides the most cutting-edge research to explain the ten areas we should focus on to better our chances of a long life.

Synopsis

The Nordic Guide to Living 10 Years Longer 10 Easy Tips to Live a Healthier, Happier Life by Dr. Bertil Marklund

This compact guide provides wisdom from the Nordics, a region long known for its healthy and progressive lifestyle. It debunks myths on things we have been told are not good for us but actually can be: did you know drinking coffee will promote your health? Or that more people die of lack of Vitamin D than they do of skin cancer? By providing pragmatic and realistic advice, Dr Marklund gives you the power to make a difference in your own life today and for the future.

Reviews

A cracking book full of common sense -- Cat Harvey * Sunday Mail (Glasgow) * [Bertil Marklund's] book is far from the first lifestyle guide to indulge our appetite for all things Scandinavian. What sets it apart is its simplicity, unusual in a self-help book, let alone one written by a university professor... it is just over 100 pages and its advice is presented in a format so digestible you feel like applying it all in one go. -- Peta Bee * The Times * Forget the comfort of Danish hygge; Swedish sundhet is better for your health. -- Peta Bee * The Times *
