The Blue Zones

Overview

How badly do you want to live forever? As humans, this is one of our most common collective desires: not wanting to die.

The world is already working hard at pills that slow down the aging process, but nobody knows if they'll live to see the day where average life expectancy crosses into the triple-digits. What we do know is that some people already live to be over 100 years old, and we sure can learn from them.

Author Dan Buettner has identified 5 so-called Blue Zones – areas where people live exceptionally long lives – and details what they do to become centenarians (a person who lives to be 100). While some are obvious, like not smoking or exercising regularly, others are far more subtle. Let's dive in!

"Drink without getting drunk, love without suffering jealousy, eat without overindulging, never argue, and – once in a while, with great discretion – misbehave."
