All of the Blue Zones in the world are in different places, yet they have specific dietary habits. And that is not because they all eat the same, it's because the principles of diet remain the same.Which is great because that means you can apply it to your life even if you don't live in Costa Rica or Okinawa!Find Dory here: Dr. Joe here: Well RVA Members:
The right outlook on life. No wonder it's essential for those that are likely to live to 100 years old.I firmly believe that having a life purpose is so important to a fulfilled life. Every decision in health stems from an anchored purpose. Couple that with downshifting each day and we have an amazing set up for the right outlook!Find Dory here: Dr. Joe here: Well RVA Members:
I'm sure you have heard of the saying "You become the average of the five people you spend the most time with."

But that doesn't mean we can't learn something from them!Find Dory here: Dr. Joe here: Well RVA Members:
As Pam says on her website: "Every child is intelligent, resourceful, competent, and driven toward relationship with other people and the world. But not every child grows up believing this about himself."This was a wonderfully insightful and eye-opening conversation with Pam Oken-Wright (author, teacher, educational consultant, keynote speaker) about what we as parents can be doing to help support our children so that they can still be children and use that imagination and curiosity to enrich and drive their education. This is a must-listen for anyone who has or interacts with children, as it gives insight into how the child brain works and how we as adults can support and encourage their development and growth.Pam's book, "Mommy, They're Taking Away My Imagination" can be purchased on Amazon.Find Pam here: Dory here: Dr. Joe here: Well RVA Members:
Be glad we didn't say "To supplement, or not to supplement...that is the question" more than once.Holding two conflicting opinions at the same time is tough, but we managed to have fun balancing out the viewpoints and playing devil's advocate with each other on whether or not supplementing your nutrition should be a priority.Find Dory here: Dr. Joe here: Well RVA Members:
