To find the path to long life and health, Dan Buettner and his team study the world’s “Blue Zones,” communities whose elders live with vim and vigor to record-setting age. In his talk, he shares the 9 common diet and lifestyle habits – Power 9® – that keep them spry past age 100. What should you be doing to live a longer life? Dan Buettner debunks the most common myths and offers a science-backed blueprint for the average American to live another 12 quality years.
Where we live–not education, marital status or wealth– is the biggest, controllable factor that determines our happiness. For his book Thrive, Dan Buettner worked with Gallup, The World Values Survey and the World Data Base on Happiness to identify four pockets around the world where people report the highest levels of well-being, then determined what they have in common. What can communities do to maximize well-being? And more importantly, what can we do as individuals to stack the deck in our favor?
In 2009, Albert Lea, Minnesota, a statistically average American city, completed a one-year community health experiment that raised life expectancy by three years, trimmed a collective 12,000 pounds off waistlines and dropped healthcare costs of city workers by some 40% – and they’ve continued to sustain the results. Harvard’s Dr. Walter Willett called the results “stunning”. Hear how one typically unhealthy American city reversed the trend, re-shaped their environment to live longer, better, and boosted happiness. They got healthier without thinking about it.
