Blue Zones, Lessons from the World's Longest Lived Populations

Episode Summary

In this episode of The GS Nation Podcast, Cary & Dave discuss Blue Zones - the areas in the world where people are the happiest, healthiest, and live the longest! The key to youthful longevity is creating a lifestyle and environment for yourself and your loved ones that makes it difficult to be UNhealthy... or as Dan Buettner of The Blue Zones Solutions suggests, an environment "that nudges you into the right behaviors... subtly and relentlessly." Everything matters - your mindset, how often you rest, what and how you eat, how active you are, who you spend time with, and how you spend that time. You will learn how the inhabitants of these Blue Zones live so well and how you can seamlessly adopt many of the “Power Nine” Blue Zone habits for yourself here in Richmond!
