Want To Know The Secret To Living Longer? Take a lesson from the people living in the “Blue Zones”.
Where are the “Blue Zones”?
- The Italian island of Sardinia
- Okinawa, Japan
- Loma Linda, California
- Costa Rica’s isolated Nicoya Peninsula
- Ikaria, an isolated Greek island
What are the life extending practices of the people in the Blue Zones?
- Move naturally – walking, biking or low impact exercises are great. It is not necessary to lift heavy weights to be healthy.
- Eat Plants – follow more of a vegetarian diet. Less red meat, more vegetables.
- Stop at 80% – When it comes to food, don’t overeat. When you feel like you are close to getting full, stop eating.
- Find your purpose – do what you like.
- Downshift 2 gears – it is better to slow down than go at 100% all the time.
- Loved ones first – put family first, lower the priority on small things that matter less.
- Wine at 5 – drink the red wine with your loved ones! In small amounts, (1-2 glasses a few times per week) this is a healthy way to enjoy the benefits of red wine. For great red wine with loved ones, visit Chef Anne Kearney over at Bar Dumaine!
