S9 Ep12: The Good Glow with Dan Buettner

The Good Glow

My guest this week is Dan Buettner. He’s a New York Times best-selling author and founder of The Blue Zones. Dan discovered the five places in the world, called blue zones hotspots, where people live the longest, healthiest lives. They are the Barbagia region of Sardinia, Ikaria in Greece, the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica, Loma Linda in California and Okinawa, Japan. Over a number of years, Dan teamed up with National Geographic to go to these ‘blue zones’ and study their people. What were they doing differently? How do they live? And what’s their secret? Dan found 9 common lifestyle habits in these regions, which he called the Power 9. Today, Dan takes me through their rituals (some may surprise you) and tells us how we can adapt this 'blue zone lifestyle' in our own homes.  Dan’s books:  The Blue Zones Kitchen The Blue Zones of Happiness The Blue Zones Solution

Dan Buettner on The Blue Zones

The Happy Pear Podcast

For our second episode in our Community series, we are delighted to present the magical Dan Buettner!Buettner is an explorer, National Geographic Fellow, award-winning journalist and producer, and a New York Times bestselling author. He discovered the five places in the world—dubbed Blue Zones—where people live the longest, healthiest lives. Buettner now works in partnership with municipal governments, large employers, and health insurance companies to implement Blue Zones Projects (well-being initiatives applying the lessons from Blue Zones) in communities, workplaces, and universities. The program has dramatically improved the health of more than 5 million Americans to date.In this podcast, we cover the main correlating factors for longevity in these Blue Zones, and how we can start to implement changes in our own lives to be healthier and happier.“If you are overweight in America and possibly Ireland it is probably not your fault. If you go back to the 1980s, in this country about a third as many people were obese and about a seventh as many people were suffering from type 2 diabetes. Back in the 80’s they didn’t have better diets or better discipline. What’s changed is there are about 20 times more fast-food chains now, we drive about 60% more instead of being on our feet, a full 40% of all retail outlets, pharmacies and gas stations... all have junk food. We are genetically hardwired to eat fat and sugar and take rests whenever we can, and that's okay when you live in an environment of hardship and scarcity like we have for 99% of human existence but now you throw that same genetic makeup into a cesspool of burgers, fries, pizzas, and package snacks, your genetics are going to win out all day long!”A great episode to follow from Helena Norberg-Hodge last week. We really hope you enjoyed it!
