You can’t blame your parents. Longevity is not all about genetics, it’s influenced by where we spend time and with whom. Recent research points to how genes can be altered by how we live, and how we live is impacted by where and with whom.
Healthy eating is a start, but maintaining high well-being also means modifying one’s environment in order to increase physical activity, develop supportive relationships, and nurture a significant sense of life-purpose. We will explore lessons from worksites and communities that are set up to nurture well-being and discuss practical steps each person can take to live more fully.
Join Joel Spoonheim, Director of Health Promotion for HealthPartners and a founding member of the Blue Zones Project, to discuss the increasing evidence about how your health and longevity is affected by not just how you live, but where you live.
