On this week’s 51%, living well, first via sustainable happiness, then, through fine dining. And it call comes together with a focus on women's health.

Berrett-Koehler Publishers and YES! Magazine have collaborated on an anthology about living well and living mindfully in a world challenged by climate change, economic upheaval, and social inequities. The book is called Sustainable Happiness: Live Simply, Live Well, Make a Difference and brings together scientific research, essays, and personal stories. I asked YES! Magazine Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief Sarah van Gelder whether happiness is sustainable.

  It’s easy to find restaurants serving high-end Vietnamese fusion cuisine in many parts of the world but, in Vietnam, diners have much more conventional palates. But there's a woman who is running one of Hanoi’s few fine-dining restaurants, Pots 'n Pans. She says her tough childhood nurtured her. DW's Marianne Brown reports from Hanoi.  

The week after Mother’s Day marked the 16th annual National Women’s Health Week, organized by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health. Dr. Nancy Lee is the office’s director. She says it is important for women to take the time and small steps necessary to maintain good health. Here's Dr. Lee speaking with 51%’s Brian Shields.  

And that’s our show for this week. Thanks to Katie Britton for production assistance. Our executive producer is Dr. Alan Chartock. Our theme music is Glow in the Dark by Kevin Bartlett. This show is a national production of Northeast Public Radio.
