The Blue Zones
Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who've Lived the Longest
by Dan Buettner
It is possible to live to age 100 and beyond, and in good physical and emotional health. Discover the shared lifestyle habits of communities in which people live the longest, healthiest, and most fulfilling lives.
The Blue Zones studies four distinct groups of people across the world-from Costa Rica to Japan-in which individuals easily live to age 100 and then some. It explores the customs and behaviors of these groups, explaining why certain habits allow their members to lead long, healthy lives. Make simple changes to your lifestyle, based on the ideals of Blue Zone residents, to increase your own life span.
You will learn:
- That socializing and hanging out with friends is actually good for your health
- How simplifying your life can significantly reward you personally and socially
- What a healthy diet looks like-and that it still allows you to enjoy alcohol if you wish to.
