Last week I heard National Geographic writer Dan Buettner talk about Blue Zones – communities with unusual high percentage of centenarians.  Can this type of study be instructive to a healthy lifestyle in urban America? I was skeptical. But in the end, I bought the book and buy his Power Nine principles:

  1. Move Naturally
  2. Know Your Purpose
  3. Down Shift
  4. 80% Rule
  5. Plant Slant
  6. Wine at 5
  7. Family First
  8. Belong
  9. Right Tribe

It is encouraging to see these principles being applied to communities around the country.
