Come discover Blue Zones Project?s® unique, systemic approach to improving well-being ? focusing on our ?life radius.? By optimizing the settings where we routinely spend our time such as worksites, school, restaurants, grocery stores, faith-based communities and neighborhoods, we make healthy choices easier ? and naturally adopt healthier behaviors together as a community. Blue Zones Project is based on principles identified during a ten-year worldwide longevity study commissioned by Naitonal Geographic and detailed in Dan Buettner?s New York Times best-seller.
