LIve Longer, Happier, and for less money!

 

Do you want to live well into your 90s and 100s? Many people do it, and not due to increased health care.  Some of the populations in the world that live the longest are often found in poor countries with little health care.  As a matter of fact, only one of those populations are found in America!

I'm talking about the so called Blue Zones.  Blue Zones are areas in the world where a large number of people live past 90 and 100 years of age. And I'm not talking about surviving.   I'm talking about living, gardening, being involved with friends and family and living with little or none of the diseases that are devastating our society.  Twenty percent less cancer than our societies and almost no dementia was found amongst the Blue Zones.

This Zones have been found in Okinawa, Sardinia, Nicoya Peninsula (Costa Rica), Icaria (Greece) and Loma Linda (California)

They have identified several key elements that help people live longer, and created a diagram called the Ven Diagram which highlights six shared characteristics among among the Okinawa, Sardinia, and Loma Linda Blue Zones

  • Family Family is put ahead of other concerns.
  • No smoking Smoking is not found in large quantities.
  • Plant-based diet Except for the Sardinian diet, the majority of food consumed is derived from plants.
  • Constant moderate physical activity Moderate physical activity is an inseparable part of life.
  • Social engagement People of all ages are socially active and integrated into their communities.
  • Legumes Legumes are commonly consumed.

Keep active, keep learning and keep helping others.
