World Information: Blue Zones 🗺️

Updated: May 4


🌏 Blue zones are regions in the world that are home to some of the oldest and healthiest people. Blue Zones regions include Okinawa Prefecture, Japan; Sardinia, Italy; Ikaria, Greece; Nicoya, Costa Rica; and Loma Linda, California, USA (Image 1).



Blue Zones regions were discovered by author and National Geographic Explorer Dan Buettner, who has worked for more than a decade researching about longevity.



Although lifestyles differ slightly, there were common factors that united the regions. For example, people living in Blue Zones mostly follow a plant-based healthy diet 🥗, exercise regularly🏃🏻‍♀️, get enough sleep 😴and have good spiritual, family and social networks 🤝🏼 (Image 2).


To learn more about Blue Zones, we recommend watching the new Netflix documentary series titled “Live to 100: Secrets of the Blue Zones” 🌏
