Blue Zones Vitality Compass
Katie Carpenter | 07.18.13
How long do you want to live? If you answered 100 years, what’s your game plan for reaching the century mark? It might surprise you to learn that studies suggest longevity is 25 percent genetics and 75 percent lifestyle. National Geographic explorer, researcher and author Dan Buettner traveled to five corners of the globe to report on so-called "Blue Zones," home to clusters of centenarians.
He chronicled their secrets to living longer and healthier in his New York Times’ bestseller, “The Blue Zones.” His follow-up book, “Thrive,” explored how individuals can maximize personal happiness, enhance vibrancy and increase longevity by adopting the Blue Zones' principles.
Buettner’s Blue Zone project collaborated with the University of Minnesota School of Public Health to create a tool to calculate your biological age, overall life expectancy, healthy life expectancy, and years you’re gaining or losing because of your lifestyle.
