Blue Zones

Friday, June 13, 2014

I was reading this blog:

which linked me to this article: blogs.scientificamerican

which comes with a video.

And it was lovely and inspiring. It talked about what I'm hoping to achieve through this month--keeping healthy habits for their own sake, rather than for weight loss's sake.

I've noticed this week that I'm feeling more enthusiastic and happy to be going to the gym, just because I'm going to the gym, and I like it. I like the elliptical, I like listening to my tunes, I like reading my silly magazines and getting caught up on them and tossing them out when I'm done. It feels like I'm decluttering while exercising!

Speaking of tunes, I'm jamming to this one right now:
Steely Dan is so good.

I went to the Blue Zones website and took their life expectancy assessment, which is mentioned in the second link. I signed up for their newsletter, too. It seems like a good resource for health for health's sake.

I spent far more than my 15 minutes daily on this. It was over an hour. But I like Dr. Deah's website, so will continue to visit it.

    I liked the Blue Zone site, too. Interesting though, that it counted against me that I can't/don't eat wheat or dairy products!
