Life Radius®

The Blue Zones Project® focuses on a “5-mile life radius,” that area close to home where we spend 90 percent of our lives. For the Blue Zones Projects, we optimize:

  • The built environment: Improving roads and transportation options, parks, and public spaces
  • Municipal policies and ordinances: Promoting activity and discouraging junk food marketing and smoking
  • Restaurants, schools, grocery stores and workplaces: Building healthier options into the places people spend most of their time
  • Social networks: Forming and nurturing social groups that support healthy habits
  • Habitat: Helping people design homes that nudge them into eating less and moving more
  • Inner selves: Encouraging people to reduce stress, find their purpose, and give back to the community
