Are you living in a blue zone? Whether you are or aren’t, learning what creates them could help you live healthy and happy well past 100.
Blue zones are the 5 areas of the world where people live the longest. But, we’re not just talking about counting down the birthdays. These blue zones are filled with healthy, happy seniors living vibrant lives.
So, how do we turn our own communities into blue zones? Simple, we follow the lead of these amazing places found around the world.
To find out exactly what that would entail, we reached out to tuja-advisor Dr. Carla Cupido. Dr. Carla is a chiropractor, yoga teacher, acupuncturist and overall holistic health expert based in Vancouver. She’s taken a keen interest in researching these unique areas around the world and discovering their secrets to longevity. She’s pulled together the top 9 healthy habits practiced in these blue zones – and they really aren’t that hard to follow.
In our latest podcast, host Tim Wohlberg chats with Dr. Carla about these 9 lifestyle shifts and the idea of long life. You might be surprised to discover that not every tip is about depriving yourself of the good things in life. In fact, some of the most important lifestyle shifts include getting more of the good stuff. Find out what role friends, community and a good glass of wine might play in your living to be 100.
Ever the skeptic, our host also challenges the good doctor on whether we really want to live so long – especially if our last ten years are spent in bed. After all, that’s the picture of old age we face in North America (which, by the way, is not a blue zone despite our access to the best medicine and hospitals). Dr. Carla sets him straight. He discovers that growing old doesn’t have to mean feeling old and the ‘old folks’ living in the blue zones are living, smiling proof of that.
Tune in to find out how to live a blue zone lifestyle and set yourself up for a long, vibrant, healthy life. Look out 100, here we come!
