The Blue Zones & Happiness

Have you heard of the Blue Zones and the remarkable work of Dan Buettner? Dan Buettner studied 5 different parts of the world that had/boasted the highest per capita populations of centenarians – people who thrive to 100 and beyond. He discovered that the people who live the longest and most fulfilling lives, eat a 95-100% plant based diet. There are other important factors too for increased longevity, and happiness, including love, a sense of community, physical activity, laughter, social interactions, and having a sense of purpose.

Favorite takeaway? An 85 year old wise man from Latin America on the keys to happiness: 1. Eat without gluttony (hopefully plant based) 2. Drink without getting drunk 3. Love without Jealousy 4. Never argue 5. And occasionally, with great discretion, misbehave
