I seem to only talk about how to age nicely and live longer at the moment. This is certainly due to my deep belief that we can learn from people who have succeeded in achieving what we want. And some of them seem to have a great handle on how to do so. Hence, once again I write on the subject 🙂
I was delighted to see a video on the TED website from Dan Buettner on the subject a few months back, and since he only emphasises on what was already pointed out in studies mentioned over the last few months on this site, I thought I would share the link to the video here and the final conclusion of the speaker on the matter .
The key common points of the blue zones – communities where people live to be 100+ – mentioned in the video are that its elderly ( 100+):
- Move naturally (physical activity is completely embedded in their lifestyle)
- Have the right out look on life
( knowing when to downshift, and having a purpose now)
- Eat wisely ( drink a bit of wine, eat vegetables and no over-eating)
- Connect ( with loved ones first and then belong to a community of people that support the right lifestyle)
I hope you will enjoy the video as much as I did. On a small note, I have helped to translate this video in French to ensure that more of you could enjoy watching it as well.
