THE POWER 9
by Dan Buettner

Turn your life into a Blue Zone. Here are Dan Buettner’s nine lifestyle secrets from the Blue Zones and how to put them to work in your daily routine.
  • Move naturally — Be active without having to think about it.
    How to implement: Inconvenience yourself. Take the stairs, hide your remote control, and get rid of your gas lawn mower.
  • Hara Hachi Bu — Painlessly cut calories by 20 percent.
    How to implement: Make food look bigger, use smaller plates, make snacking a hassle, eat more slowly, and have a seat.
  • Plant slant — Avoid meat and processed foods.
    How to implement: Eat four to six vegetable servings a day, showcase fruits and vegetables, lead with beans, and eat nuts every day.
  • Grapes of Life — Drink red wine (in moderation).
    How to implement: Treat yourself to a Happy Hour that includes a glass of wine with nuts, a gathering of friends, or time with a spouse. But take it easy — two servings of red wine a day are the most you need to drink to take advantage of its health benefits. Overdoing it negates any benefits you might enjoy.
  • Purpose now — Take time to see the big picture.
    How to implement: Craft a personal mission statement, find a partner, and learn something new.
  • Down shift — Take time to relieve stress.
    How to implement: Reduce the noise, be early (it will save you the stress of rushing and give you time to prepare and get centered), and meditate.
  • Belong— Participate in a spiritual community.
    How to implement: Be more involved in your religious community or explore a new tradition
  • Loved ones first — Make family a priority.
    How to implement: Get closer and consider living in a smaller house to create an environment of togetherness. Establish family rituals, or create a family shrine of photographs to show how you’re connected to each other.
  • Right tribe — Surround yourself with friends who share Blue Zones values.
    How to implement: Be likeable — it will afford you a social network, frequent visitors, and de facto caregivers. Identify your inner circle and create time together.
