Did you know that Switzer­land has been named one of the hap­pi­est coun­tries on the planet in the World Hap­pi­ness Re­port six years in a row? Given the alpine na­tion’s spec­tac­u­lar scenery and nat­u­ral of­fer­ings, it’s not re­ally sur­pris­ing that its peo­ple are so con­tent and boast one of the world’s high­est life ex­pectan­cies. Ri­cola has been pro­duc­ing de­li­cious sweets with its unique 13-herb blend in the Swiss alps for more than 80 years, so it’s fair to say the brand is pretty clued up on what the coun­try is do­ing so right.

Like Ri­cola, Switzer­land val­ues and pri­ori­tises peo­ple’s health and well­be­ing. In fact, the coun­try’s govern­ment makes every­one take two weeks of their an­nual hol­i­day en­ti­tle­ment back to back so they get a proper break from work and en­joy some qual­ity down­time. Re­lax­ation is a key part of the Swiss life­style – ac­cord­ing to old laws, it’s even il­le­gal to hang wash­ing or mow the lawn on Sun­days!

Ri­cola knows how pre­cious na­ture is and how im­por­tant a role it plays in our sense of hap­pi­ness, as demon­strated by the Swiss’ love of the great out­doors. Blessed with some of the world’s most breath­tak­ing alpine land­scapes on their doorstep, the peo­ple of Switzer­land make the most of their sur­round­ings all year round, head­ing to the snowy moun­tains in the win­ter and bask­ing be­side sun-soaked lakes dur­ing the sum­mer. They’re also very friendly and po­lite, and make an ef­fort to greet any­one they cross paths with. If you’d like to #BeMoreSwiss, why not try this next time you’re out and about?

Tak­ing a mo­ment to savour one of Ri­cola’s calm­ing and re­fresh­ing sugar-free herbal sweets is the per­fect way to get a taste of the Swiss life­style.
