When you watch these longevity videos and read these articles on longevity, you will realize that growing older doesn't have to mean stopping living. They will show you how to add more life to your living and more living into your life. Be inspired!
As I do more and more talks and keynotes and training, I see how the knowledge of 'blue zones' (according to Wikipedia its defined as: an anthropological concept that describes the characteristic lifestyles and the environments of the world's longest-lived people) is increasing. The areas identified as being blue zones are Okinawa (Japan); Sardinia (Italy); Nicoya (Costa Rica); Icaria (Greece) and among the Seventh-day Adventists in Loma Linda, California. Their longevity lifestyles have been studied to glean the secrets to living longer and stronger.
As I've studied the lives of Centenarians, I've been astonished that things we would never consider as health measures seemingly are and the commonly dispensed health advice isn't necessarily longevity advice. For example, we're commonly told that vigorous, aerobic exercise is good for our health and one of the secrets to longevity....but we aren't commonly told that simple activity like gardening is something that people who live to over 100 have in common.
And what about those ageless athletes, those very old athletes who are very young in what they can do and achieve? As I read articles on longevity, and watch longevity videos I'm constantly amazed at these incredible athletes who will literally blow your mind with their ageless bodies and longevity lifestyles that allow them to achieve what most think is impossible.
When you read stories and articles about those who live the longest and you witness how well they age....don't you wonder how different their biology is to those people who get sick, age and die? I wasn't interested in merely studying the lives of centenarians, I'm interesting in helping people replicate their biology so they can do the same. Imagine learning what centenarians do and then having the tools to replicate it at a biological, neurological and biochemical level!
