Live Longer

Great advice from www.bluezones.com on how people from all over the world approach life:

1. Move Naturally - Walk, get physical activity naturally. 
2. Purpose Now- Know why you wake up in the morning, have purpose.
3. Downshift - Find time to de-stress.  Enjoy happy hour, rest, nap (not at work).
4. 80% Rule for Eating - Stop eating when you are 80% full.  Eat a big breakfast, eat with others, remove distractions and be mindful of what you eat.
5. Plant Slant - Limit meat to twice weekly.  Eat green, as well as nuts and beans.
6. Drink Alcohol - Enjoy 2 glasses of wine.  Drinkers out live non-drinkers.
7. Connect to a Faith Based Community - Engage with a church, synagogue, or other faith based entity.
8. Loved Ones First - Thrive with positive committed relationships.
9. Right Tribe - Choose healthy and supportive friends.

Numbers 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8 and 9 are no brainers for me.  4 and 5 will require some work.
