Take the Blue Zones Pledge Today
Blue Zones Project is a community-led well-being improvement initiative designed to make healthy choices easier through permanent changes to environment, policy, and social networks. Using the Power 9 principles, you can make small, manageable changes in your daily life that will help you feel happier and healthier.
Texas Health has long been a supporter of initiatives to improve well-being. In helping others improve their health, we also want to make sure we are healthy ourselves. That’s why we have had our Be Healthy wellness program for over a decade. In 2016, that program will also include becoming a Blue Zones Project® designated worksite. You can get involved by signing the Blue Zones Personal Pledge. Then, take action to fulfill your pledge:
- Learn about the original Blue Zones areas.
- Measure how long you will live using the Vitality Compass® tool.
- Participate in a Blue Zones Project activity, such as attending a “Purpose Workshop” at your entity or volunteering in your community.
- Select five actions you can complete in the next six months, such as keeping walking shoes near your front door or adopting a dog.
