and live on Freeview channel 276
Finland wants to teach Brits ‘how to be happy’ by offering 10 people an all-expenses paid trip for a happiness masterclass in the Nordic country this summer. Finland has topped the UN’s World Happiness charts for six consecutive years judged on categories including income, mental and physical health and freedom.
Now the Finns will share their joy and teach 10 lucky applications how to stay positive like them. Participants will stay in luxurious villas surrounded by pine forests and scenic views, each with its own private spa and sauna.
The Happiness Masterclass website describes the experience as a ‘crash course for a happy lifestyle’. The four-day intensive course will be carried out by experts in various fields and will help people ‘find their inner Finn.’
Participants will be involved in cooking unique Finnish foods designed with health benefits in mind. As well as being involved in foraging and recipe development sessions.
People taking part in the masterclass will stay at the luxurious Kuru Resort, completely free of charge. The luxury villas let you immerse yourself into the surrounding nature, and feel the rhythm of nature indoors as well as out, to further support your quest for finding happiness.
There are no televisions in the villas but each villa has its own private sauna and spa. The Finns also prioritise their sleep so the villas have been designed to add an entirely new dimension to your evening routine.
Sleep researchers, doctors and specialists have been involved to optimise the premises, including elements such as ideal bedding and sleep patterns that support serene rest.
