Every country has its norms and its customs but it would not be bad to carry these habits out to improve.It is not a question of envy and much less machismo, each country has its social and political pros and cons, as well as its good and bad habits but it does seek to carry out a series of behaviors that lead to a good quality of lifetime.
Of course it all depends on how each country is governed and the conditions that exist in these, however, it would not be wrong to try to implement, at least in a personal way, a fusion of good habits to improve certain aspects of our life.
Enjoy the ‘dolce far niente’ as Italian
Enjoying “the sweetness of doing nothing” is an important part of life in Italy. Taking a moment to breathe after lunch or a long day’s work is necessary to recover energy. It is a habit of taking things in order to forget stress and free the mind. The Italians say: “chi va piano, va sano e va lontano”, which means, “who goes with calm, will have health and will go far”. It’s worth taking a break!

Take care of portions like Japanese
While in the western kitchen we serve the main dish and the accompaniments in a single dish (and in large portions), in Japan, several dishes are served and although it appears to be too much, in the beginning, it is actually an optical illusion. Since the portions of each are small. This does not mean that all are satisfied with little and that they starve afterward because each serving has the nutrients necessary to satisfy your body. The Japanese tend to eat a lot of hydrates but few fats, so their portions have plenty of rice, vegetables, and fish. So yes, carrying good food is the basis for being good inside and out.
Recycle as German
Thinking sustainable is very important today and Germany is one of the most ecological countries in Europe. Here you have a strong culture of recycling and the obligation to separate the waste in organic, inorganic containers and by type of packaging, has become a habit for its citizens. In addition, all the containers are washed before throwing them to avoid bad odors, because the collector happens once to the week. A house can have up to 5 garbage bins. In supermarkets, there are no plastic bags and there are machines that collect packages that provide an economic compensation per bottle. It would be great to have those on this side of the world! In the meantime, you can take home recycling measures like separating the trash or using glass instead of disposable.
Seize the family as Dutch
For the Dutch the reconciliation between work and family is vital, so they apply the philosophy “work to live, do not live to work”. Here the majority work 4 days a week and, in addition to the weekend, they have a weekday to take a break with the family or do extra activities. There is plenty of work flexibility, especially when it comes to illness or family emergencies; In addition, companies support the “home office”, so that employees are more productive. Even if there is no flexibility in your country, you always have to look for time to do what you like and make room for the family.
The schools have the philosophy of not leaving excess tasks to the children because they consider that the brain needs to descend to be able to surrender, in exchange for that children are inculcated the habit of reading. But in Finland, education is free and personalized for this, children have more opportunities to learn and improve day by day, there are no private schools and all have the same level, which makes it possible for children to come together with different social realities. The teachers prepare themselves very hard and get more prestige than a doctor
