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.
Dr. Ellen Langer is the longest standing professor of psychology at Harvard University - her book 'Counterclockwise' is one that has informed much of my thinking.
Dr. Mario Martinez has interviewed over 500 centenarians, and written books on longevity and health.
