CONNECT for Better Well-Being

Social connections are essential to health and well-being. Centenarians in the original Blue Zones regions of the world put Family First, have robust support groups that we call the Right Tribe, a strong sense of Purpose, and typically Belong to a faith-based community. They also relieve stress by Downshifting through meditation or mindfulness. Cultivate a sense of belonging by sharing your time in intentional ways with family, friends, and the community. And take time to connect with yourself too.
