HEALTHIER AT HOME
Surround yourself with healthier, easier choices
Blue Zones Project works with communities and individuals to make healthy choices easier by transforming the environments around us to support and encourage well-being. Strategies around well-being grow from research into the original blue zones areas, where residents reach age 100 more often than in other places.
During this time of social distancing, we could all use some inspiration on how to reshape our home environment with “healthy and easy” always in mind.
The Healthier at Home website offers wellness tips such as:
✓ Simple actions with lasting impact
✓ Engaging programs and activities
✓ Feel-good resources and stories
✓ Social newsfeeds for sharing
