June 2016: Blue Zones Power 9: Right Tribe

friends at workBlue Zones Power 9: Right Tribe

Our connections to friends and all those around us are very powerful. They have the ability to shape our lives in more ways than we realize. Consider who you hang out with. Expand your social circle to include positive, healthy-minded, supportive people. Align yourself with people that challenge, encourage, and inspire you. Surrounding yourself with your Right Tribe will do more to add years to your life than just about anything else.

Here are some ways to connect with your Right Tribe while at work:

  • Join Walkingspree and taking walking breaks together
  • Join Weight Watchers and hold each other accountable
  • Eat a healthy lunch together. Remember to eat with a plant slant and to only eat until you are 80% full!
