The Blue Zones

Check out The Blue Zones.

We discussed how a preacher was working to make his congregation more healthy. Another program that speaks to this type of a plan is the concept of The Blue Zones.

Daniel Buettner studied the world's healthiest and longest-living cultures. In studying these groups of people, he learned that they had a range of traits in common. For example, they regularly incorporated exercise naturally into their lifestyles; they were part of a religious group; they drank moderately among other things.

Check out the Blue Zones website to learn more about how this approach can improve your health. The state of Iowa is currently using the concepts outlined in the Blue Zones as part of its Healthiest State initiative.
