Live Longer, Better

9 Lessons from the worlds Blues Zones
on living a longer healthier active lifestyle:

  1. Move Naturally. Moving naturally throughout the day — walking, gardening, doing housework — is a core part of the Blue Zones lifestyle.
  2.  Purpose. The Okinawans call it ikigai and the Nicoyans call it plan de vida. Knowing why you wake up in the morning makes you healthier, happier, and adds up to seven years of extra life expectancy.
  3. Down Shift. Stress is part of life, but Blue Zones centenarians have stress-relieving rituals built into their daily routines. Adventists pray, Ikarians nap, and Sardinians do happy hour.
  4.  80% Rule. People in Blue Zones areas stop eating when their stomachs are 80% full and eat their smallest meal in the early evening.
  5. Plant Slant. Beans are the cornerstone of most centenarian diets. Vegetables, fruit, and whole grains round out the rest of the diet and meat is eaten in small amounts.
  6. Wine at 5. Moderate but regular consumption of wine (with friends and/or food) is part of the Blue Zones lifestyle.
  7. Belong. Being part of a faith-based community adds four to 14 years to life expectancy.
  8. Loved Ones First. Having close and strong family connections (with spouses, parents, grandparents, and grandchildren) is common with Blue Zones centenarians.
  9. Right Tribe. The world’s longest lived people have close friends and strong social networks.

Our Senior health and wellness program covers many of the underlying Medical conditions that puts you into a High Risk group!

Glenn

134 lbs Weight Loss!

I met Dr. Popejoy at the American College of Lifestyle Medicine in Tucson, Az.

I explained to him that I have tried numerous times over the years to lose weight by diet alone, but it had always ended in failure because walking any distance created pain.

After listening to his story I tried the Nordic Walking Poles and felt a major relief of pain when walking.

15 min. of Nordic Walking is equal to 27 minutes of regular walking burning 22-47% more calories, so it didn’t take long before I was walking farther with no pain.

Since that day I have lost 72 lbs. in the first 3 months and 134 lbs. in 6 months and have participated in my first 5k walk. 

I highly recommend this wonderful walking program with it’s additional exercises for Stretching, Strengthening, Breathing and Balance . 

Janie

Senior Fall Prevention
and Memory Care

I just started a Nordic Pole Walking exercise class at my Senior Retirement Home.

I and others were amazed, that we all felt on our first walking session a full body workout.

It gave us stability, better posture and helped relieved chronic pain. It’s also a resistant cross motor exercise creating better brain function.

I also, enjoy the stretching, strengthening and balance exercise!

I would highly recommend this Nordic Home Walking Exercise Program.
