The Italian Way of Wholeness: Giadzy’s January Reset

After the excess and stress of the holiday season, Giadzy is spending the month of January connecting to a simpler, more integrated way of living. While Italians are famous for pleasure-seeking, there’s an even stronger tradition in the country of embracing simplicity. Cucina povera, the source of some of our most beloved dishes, literally means poor food—to make deliciousness out of the humblest ingredients. In fact, that pleasure-seeking reputation comes from Italian culture’s focus on finding joy within one’s means—not to excess, but as a way to make use of those gifts we have already been given. Pleasure can be found in a cup of espresso, a beautiful flower arrangement, or a walk with a friend. All you have to do is take the time to focus on what matters to you.

This January, we’ll be simplifying and unraveling the way we think about our homes, our bodies, travel, and, of course, food. Join us as we take a deep breath and embrace the Italian Way of Wholeness.
