What is Blue Zones

Sharing lifestyle secrets to longevity.

BLUE ZONES is an innovative project about longevity and quality of life. It reflects the lifestyle, traditions and the environment of the world’s longest-living people. Scientific research has discovered five regions of the world - called Blue Zones - where people are the healthiest and live longer than average.
Based on the secrets captured in these rare longevity hotspots, the explorer and journalist Dan Buettner founded the "Blue Zones Project", with the aim of enabling people to live longer, happier and better lives, learning from the populations of the Blue Zones areas.
According to the studies conducted in collaboration with other researchers, some common denominators have emerged that are repeated in the lifestyles of these long-living cultures: a routine natural movement throughout the day, a plant-slant diet, close relationships with family and friends, and a strong sense of purpose in life. All these values can help everyone to significantly improve the quality of their lives and ultimately determine its longevity.
