Want to live longer?
Daniel Buettner, author of The Blue Zones, found that in communities where residents routinely live to 100, people:
- Eat beans
- Stop eating before they’re full
- Drink a glass of red wine daily
- Have purpose
- Slow down
- Belong to a community
“We think of health as something to pursue with diets and exercise programs. In Blue Zones, people live in a climate where the healthy choice is the easy choice and health ensues,” Buettner said at the donor-funded David A. Rothenberger Lecture at the U’s Medical School last fall.
