Blue Zones Principles
Backed by science, proven over time, the Blue Zones approach works. Rooted in years of international anthropological research and data-driven results, the experts at Blue Zones and Blue Zones Project use longevity and happiness secrets gleaned from real places and real people to inspire lifestyle changes with lasting effects.
Environment-First: Context matters. Blue Zones is committed to building a nation of happy and healthy communities. Starting with the immediate environment, we work with businesses, schools, environmentalists, city planners, and residents to engineer safer, healthier environments. We know the power of what can happen when the healthy option becomes the accessible, easy option. Optimizing our surroundings allows individual behavior shifts to happen more naturally, lifting everyone up to be their best.
Reduce Healthcare Costs: Blue Zones doesn’t just provide the tools to transform environments, it’s a game changer that drives real business results. Fostering mental, physical, social and professional well-being, the Blue Zones method results in a reduction in healthcare costs and improved workforce productivity.
Impact the Community: Of course we all want our communities to be happy and healthy. Blue Zones knows how to actually pull it off. We have the tools to better engage citizens, businesses, schools and other community organizations to incite real change, transform the environment and enable sustainable, meaningful growth.
Transforming the System: We’re all about creating a nation of healthy and happy people starting with the health systems, structures, and cultures that they interact with most. We help provide the right resources and pathways for individual and systemic success, improving efficacy and elevating collective potential.
Be a Part of Real Change: Join forces with other businesses, citizens, schools, employers, restaurants and community leaders to reach beyond the walls of your office and be a part of sustainable change. Deepen your connection with the community to foster transformation, inspire purpose, and see measurable results.
