5 Anti Aging Tips From The Oldest!

Posted Aug 23 2008 9:18pm

I recently read Dan Buettner, whose latest book, The Blue Zones, is a veritable treasure trove of tips for longevity and anti aging .

Buettner is an explorer whose work for National Geographic led to the book.

He investigated four parts of the world where there are more healthy centenarians than anywhere else - Sardinia, Italy; Loma Linda, CA; Okinawa, Japan; and Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula.

The following 5 tips comes from the people who’ve achieved “anti aging” better than anyone else alive.

1. MOVE. Longevity’s living legends engage in regular, low-intensity physical activity, whether it be hiking, shepherding, gardening, walking, yoga, or something else.

The data suggest that moderate, even easy, activity done on a daily basis will extend your life.

2. “Hara hachi bu.” This Okinawan saying means “Stop eating when your stomach is 80% full.” Clear enough?

Reducing calories by a mere 20% will extend your life and ensure a better quality of life..

3. Eat lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. While readers of ETR know that higher-protein diets can be really healthy, that doesn’t rule out a diet that’s also loaded with vegetables.

All of the long-lived peoples investigated by Buettner ate a plant-based diet with almost no processed foods.

4. Drink some alcohol . In Sardinia, it’s wine. In Okinawa, it’s sake. Whatever you prefer, alcohol in moderation seems to reduce both stress and inflammation.

5. Have a purpose, a reason for living. Okinawans call it ikigai. Nicoyans call it plan de vida.

In both cultures, the phrase translates to “why I wake up in the morning.” Develop a strong sense of purpose, connection to others, and community.

It’s the best anti aging and longevity advice you can find anywhere.

These people are living it!

Live the dream!

P.P.S. The more I research and learn the more I realize the answer is simple and lies with our lifestyles.
