We all chose Mallorca for a reason. The people, the climate, the sea and mountains, business opportunities or sports, the food or the diversity of nature. Whatever makes the difference for you, here is a bonus for everybody. When it comes to a healthy lifestyle Spain just surpassed all other countries. According to the 2019 edition of Bloomberg’s Healthiest Country Index eating habits significantly contribute to this result.
The so-called Mediterranean diet is rather a treat than a cure. Olive-oil, almonds and wine, the ingredients of a healthy lifestyle, are all found on Mallorca. Together with fresh fish, vegetables and other produce of a quality unknown to Northern regions it is part of our daily eats. Moreover, there are some great chefs on the Balearic Islands who serve fabulous contemporary interpretations of traditional Spanish cuisine.
Of course, to live long and healthy it needs more than proper food. It’s also the ability to enjoy life, to live in the present and to share life with the people you are close to. To rejoice in nature, feeling that you are part of it. Along with a modern social infrastructure. When it comes to longevity Spain only trails Japan and Switzerland but is expected to also have the longest lifespan, soon.
No wonder, people from the UK (rank 19), Germany (rank 23), or the U.S. (rank 35) love to spend their holidays on Mallorca. Or altogether move to the Mediterranean, whether it is for work or retirement. Same goes for the Swedes, even though they already rank 6 in the recent index. Obviously it is not just the Mediterranean diet, the quality of life, but the way of living that makes Mallorca one of the most popular places for people from all over the world. Estilo Mallorca, so to speak.
