Monday Muse - Blue Zones
Some time ago, I read about Blue Zones, places on earth where people live the longest. I discovered their website recently and have been enjoying their series of videos about Ikaria, Greece, the most recently discovered Blue Zone. It is fascinating to consider the reasons for longevity as one compares the various Blue Zones. In particular, what fascinates me is the deep sense of connection to friends and family that most of these long-lived persons experience. It is a common thread between the various regions, though they are scattered across our beautiful planet. The video is a great introduction to the study of Blue Zones.
If you have some time to explore, here is a link to the website:
The blue tab labelled "Ikaria" will take you to the series of short videos about Ikaria, Greece that I have really been enjoying.
