Do you want to be happier? Live longer? Be healthier?
If you’re human, my guess is “Yes!” so read on…
Today I have THE expert in happiness and longevity. This man has helped no less than 5 million Americans. He’s been on the cover of National Geographic and written bestsellers on the science of longevity and happiness.
When I started reading his first book, The Blue Zones, I loved it so much that I immediately ordered all of the subsequent Blue Zones books in the series.
In this episode, we deconstruct what it really takes to live a long, happy and healthy life — according to decades worth of painstaking research.
After studying the world’s happiest people, Dan Buettner found 3 “types” of happiness. Today he’s sharing the habits that keep them that way — well into their 100s.
I’ve found these findings fascinating and, most importantly, accessible. These are practices, habits and changes that virtually all of us can make.
You’re about to learn:
- How a strong sense of purpose in life has made Okinawa, Japan “the land of immortals.”
- Why your environment – aka where you live and how you shape your surroundings — is the most impactful thing you can adjust to stack the deck in favor of happiness.
- The biggest determiner of whether or not you like your job. Hint: it’s not how much money you make or recognition you get.
This information has the potential to be life changing for you and those you love. Dan has so much to teach us about health, happiness and purpose, no matter where you live or what you do. Watch now.
