Blue Zones Project launched in Southwest Florida in November 2015 and has impacted over 800 organizations and more than 275,000 individuals. If you're hearing about us for the first time, we are a well-being project that works with individuals, homeowners' associations, faith-based organizations, restaurants, grocery stores, schools and businesses in the community to help make healthy choices easier. Using National Geographic research that found nine commonalities (the Power 9©) among people around the world who live the longest and healthiest, we provide the tips and tools to help people in Southwest Florida also live longer, better lives.

But how? The Power 9 include best practices like: taking time in your day to do something you love in order to de-stress, spending quality time with friends and family, eating more fruits and vegetables, exercising and moving throughout the day, and finding and living your true purpose. By incorporating these practices into your life, you will notice the impact on your health and happiness over time. You don't need to do all the Power 9, but by adopting as many of the principles as you can, you'll improve your opportunity to live a healthier, happier, longer life. We invite you to join us!
