The Longest-Lived People Keep it Moving

The Blue Zones, in a somewhat of a "Captain Obvious" post... confirms "The longest-lived people in the world share nine commonalities: they move naturally in their daily lives; eat a plant-slant diet, go to happy hour and drink Wine at 5; they wake up in the morning with purpose; find ways to down shift and shed stress; eat to 80 percent full; belong to faith-based communities; always put family first; and have close friends with similar values – we call these the Power 9."

So, we all need to keep walking with our poles to keep moving naturally in our daily lives and using Nordic Walking as a way to down shift and shed stress. Grab those poles, grab a friend and get out their and enjoy the outdoors... it is good for you!

Science confirms by incorporating five daily habits into your lifestyle can add up to 14 healthy years to your life expectancy.
