Balance July 2018 - 45

The

QUIZ

separates Ricola from other sweets is the fact
they embrace variety. Such a mindset applies
to cooking, and indeed life, so don't be afraid
to add herbs to meals or to embrace variety in
life. However, we also learned one crucial tip
when it comes to seasoning: it's good etiquette
to provide salt and pepper for guests, but poor
etiquette to use it. After all, you'd be hurting the
feelings of the chef.

how
swiss
are you?
Ricola's fun test will reveal if you need to
inject a bit more 'Swiss style' into your life

3. MIND YOUR MANNERS
We Britons and our Swiss chums have slightly
different rules when it comes to manners and
etiquette. However, if the #BeMoreSwiss event
taught us anything, it was that we should all be
more mindful when it comes to manners. Body
language is of paramount importance to the
Swiss, who prefer to keep conversation at a full
arm's length, while a handshake should be firm
and eye contact maintained throughout. And
how's this for being respectful? We learned in
Switzerland it's illegal to buy just one guinea pig;
you have to buy two, otherwise they get lonely.

4. TAKE TIME TO UNWIND
Remember when a Great British Sunday meant
doing nothing? It was the perfect opportunity
to kick back. These days, we find ourselves
reaching for the work laptop, hitting the shops
and treating the supposed "day of rest"
as just another opportunity to run
ourselves into the ground. However,
the Swiss have the right idea. As
Marie-Hélène Ferguson explained,
both mowing the lawn and even
hanging out the washing are
deemed a no-no on Sundays.

5. THE GREAT
OUTDOORS
This is something friend of Balance
Alexandra Dudley is particularly passionate
about. OK, we can't walk to the Matterhorn
on our lunch break, but London is packed with
Ricola's
beautiful and sometimes hidden greenery,
secret blend
so it's important we make the most of our
of herbs
was created surroundings. Alight the Tube one stop early and
make the most of a beautiful walk, or just take
in 1940
in the here and now. However you decide to
connect, make time for a delicious moment of
calm with Ricola sugar-free herbal sweets.
