Our Blue Zone
1. Move Naturally – run marathon or go to the gym is not enough. Instead, live in environments that don’t have mechanical convenience and moving constantly without thinking about it
2. Purpose – The Okinawans call it “Ikigai” and the Nicoyans call it “plan de vida;” for both it translates to “why I wake up in the morning.” Having purpose is worth up to seven years of extra life expectancy
3. Down Shift – Even people in the Blue Zones experience stress. Okinawans take a few moments each day to remember their ancestors, Adventists pray, Ikarians take a nap and Sardinians do happy hour.
4. 80% Rule – They stop eating when their stomachs are 80 percent full. The 20% gap could be the difference between losing weight or gaining it
5. Plant Slant – Beans, including fava, black, soy and lentils, are the cornerstone of most centenarian diets. Meat—mostly pork—is eaten on average only five times per month
6. Wine @ 5 – People in all blue zones (except Adventists) drink alcohol moderately and regularly. Moderate drinkers outlive non-drinkers. The trick is to drink 1-2 glasses per day
7. Belong – All but five of the 263 centenarians we interviewed belonged to some faith-based community. Denomination doesn’t seem to matter.
8. Loved Ones First – Successful centenarians in the blue zones put their families first. This means keeping aging parents and grandparents nearby or in the home
9. Right Tribe – The world’s longest-lived people chose–or were born into–social circles that supported healthy behaviors, Okinawans created “moais”–groups of five friends that committed to each other for life.
