Staying Alive: Part 2
Live Longer, Better
About This Course
The people of the Blue Zones aren’t on Weight Watchers. Most of them don’t belong to a gym. They don’t really exercise in the way we think of exercise. But they live way longer and better than most Americans.
Part of the reason is diet. An even bigger part, though, is their environment. Their worlds are set up to make healthy living a no-brainer - and you can do the same for yourself.
In this course, you will learn how to build your own Blue Zone from the inside out. Dan Buettner will guide you through a series of activities to help you look at yourself, your relationships, your home, and beyond, giving you insights and opportunities to make simple changes that can have profound effects on your health and happiness.
Share this with people you want to live longer.
