Living better and longer are two pursuits that occupy a lot of peoples’ minds. What is the secret? Eat well, but well in what way? Move, but how much? Keeping track of life-elongating trends and elixirs can be stressful and stress is one of the biggest factors for not living as long as you would like. Luckily, a researcher for National Geographic, Dan Buettner, started looking into specialized populations across the globe that contain a disproportionate number of centenarians. He called these geographic locations “blue zones” and tried to parse out what made these places so special.

It turns out good, old-fashioned living is not as intense as we might think it is. Creating healthy habits is one of the No. 1 goals behind Blue Zone living. Buettner found that in places like Ikaria, Sardinia and Osaka people had some commonalities. They eat a mainly plant-based diet with the occasional addition of meat, dairy and fish. They drink red wine in moderation. They have a community they rely on and call their own. They have a purpose that keeps them going. And they move. They move as much and as naturally as they can.

Enjoying life and having healthy and sustaining habits seems to be the key to living long and well. Blue Zone dwellers also suffer a lot less from chronic ailments like Alzheimers. So have a glass of wine with friends and family and do it on the regular.
