LONGEVITY ALL- STAR SECRETS
Many things have changed in our world since the book The Blue Zones was published in 2008. Fast food places have begun to infiltrate many of the Blue Zone havens. New discoveries have been made that seem to prove that we actually can reverse the aging pedal versus the research available in 2008 that it can only be slowed down.
Nevertheless, the Longevity All-Stars studied and documented have amazing stories to tell and life-changing secrets to impart. I think each of us would agree that as Dan Buettner says in his book:
“If you live the average American lifestyle, you may never reach your potential maximum lifespan.”
“The Blue Zones” is a New York Times bestselling book written by National Geographic health journalist Dan Buettner.
Dan’s goal was to find the top cities in the world which had more people reaching the age of 100 than any others. He calls these the “The Blue Zones” and I encourage you to read his book and check out his website at www.BlueZones.com.
The top cities are:
- Okinawa, Japan
- Sardinia, Italy
- Loma Linda, California
- Nicoya, Costa Rica
- Ikaria, Greece
Did you realize the average American born today has a life expectancy of 78.2 years. There are 70,000, not so average, Americans living today who are 100.
Personally, I want to know and implement the secrets of the Blue Zone. Yes, I want to be “not so average”. What about you? And even more than just reaching a long lifespan, I want my healthspan to be what counts. Never would I wish to be 100 or even 90 or even 80 if my health was gone. My belief is that God has given us a Covenant of Health. We have so many choices in learning how to implement that covenant. Yes, I want to learn and implement them all.
Let’s focus on narrowing down the Blue Zone secrets and beginning to create our own personal Blue Zones. You may even wish to go to the Vitality Test for Blue Zones and see what the numbers have to say about your health habits and resulting in lifespan and healthspan calculations. I just did a search to find this. It actually even sends you a recommendation email for just what you can do to prayerfully add another so many years.
Almost every single one of The Secrets very beautifully coincides with the Fabufit program of training and routines. Let’s begin the month just getting an overview of the nine lessons learned from the Blue Zones.
