Nine Core Principles of Longevity

According to National Geographic and author Dan Buettner, the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica is one of the few blue zones on the planet where people live longer, happier lives..

when looking for a retirement home, we decided living a longer happier life sounded good, so we invested in a home and retreat center in one of the few blue zones and began to embrace the blue zone principles. there are nine core principles that people in blue zones live by:

1) Move naturally
2) Cut calories by 20 percent
3) Plant-based diet
4) Drink red wine
5) Plan de Vida: determine your life purpose
6) Down shift -- take time to relieve stress
7) Belong / participate in a spiritual community
8) Put loved ones first / make family a priority
9) Pick the right tribe, the people around you influence your health

Come to visit us at Casa Bellavista to enbrace these principles and create lasting habits you can bring back with you when you return to your own home.
