Health + Lifestyle

The World Health Organization has traditionally defined health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

Their definition speaks to something holistic, that health isn’t just about “symptoms” but an overall balance. For so many of us, as life becomes increasingly accelerated, it’s this balance – in our work, in our travels, in our relationships – that we need more than ever.

As a travel community, Matador is always seeking to find, learn from, and share the ground level customs around the world that help people maintain well-being.
