What’s the Rush? Slow Down, Italian Style

One blogger explains why living the “Italian way” just might be the best antidote for today’s high-paced lifestyle.

A morning cappuccino, unbelievably fresh produce, vino, lounging in piazzas, late-night dinners that last for hours, and, yes, sex. There’s no doubt Italians have perfected the art of living pleasurably.

An American sommelier (who moved to Italy in 2004) has also mastered this art.  And today, she credits the Italian lifestyle and all of its simple “pleasures” with saving her from the rush, chaos and stress of her previous life here in America. Read Eleanor Shannon’s full blog on Huffington Post.
