Longer living

May 12, 2008


If you are looking for a fountain of youth, forget pills and diet supplements. Adventurer Dan Buettner has visited four spots on the globe where people live into their 90s and 100s and outlines how they add years of good life in his new book, "The Blue Zones." His nine tips:

¢ "Move naturally. Be active without having to think about it."

¢ "Hara hachi bu. Painlessly cut calories by 20 percent."

¢ "Plant slant. Avoid meat and processed food."

¢ "Grapes of life. Drink red wine (in moderation)."

¢ "Purpose now. Take time to see the big picture."

¢ "Down shift. Take time to relieve stress."

¢ "Belong. Participate in a spiritual community."

¢ "Loved ones first. Make family a priority."

¢ "Right tribe. Be surrounded by those who share Blue Zone values."

I wonder if the "blue hair" was derived from this "blue zone"?
