What We Can Learn From The Blue Zones--Let's Start a July Book Club

For the Month of July, EmpowHER.com asked me to write about the book "The Blue Zones: Lessons For Living longer From the People Who’ve Lived the Longest," by Dan Buettner. This book looks at specific areas of the world where there are a high percentage of people who have lived into to be 90 or 100 years old. It looks at the cultures where longevity and quality of life seem to happen quite often to understand what the components are across all those cultures that produce longevity. It looks at four different areas: Sardinia, Okinawa, California, and Costa Rica.

I have wanted to read The Blue Zones so I thought this would be a great excuse to get started with it. As I started reading, I thought perhaps this would be a fascinating book for everyone to read. So here is my thought for all of you: let’s read it together. Summer is a great time to read books while you are sitting on your porch in the evening or traveling for vacation. We could have a book club where we read The Blue Zones together and you can post your thoughts about how these fascinating cultures have been able to create great quality and quantity of life.

In each of my blogs for the month of month of July I will write about each of blue zones in the world and how the information has touched me. At the end of the Blue Zones there are nine qualities that are necessary to create health and longevity in our own lives and I will summarize those as well. As I write each area I would love to hear your comments about how these insights resonate with you. It will be a fun adventure--I hope that you will join me.

Live Vibrantly,
