Live Longer & Happier – Celebrate the Holidays
“The Blue Zones” by Dan Buettner gives “9 Lessons for Living Longer From the People Who’ve Lived the Longest”. His second book is “Thrive: Finding Happiness the Blue Zones’ Way”. Both are well worth reading.
Celebrate the Holy Days. Being a person of faith is one of the 9 keys to a longer, happier life. Hanukkah and Ashura are recently past. Christmas approaches.
Around the world, many different religious traditions have developed in different cultures. Those traditions which emphasize tolerance and goodwill to all humanity, all appear able to bless their believers with longer and happier lives.
As a physician of 40 years, I know that good health is more than just the physical body. The spirit plays a very important role in a person’s overall well being. Nourish your spirit.
