Many of us spend the majority of our day at work – so having healthy choices at our workplace is key. Blue Zones Project offers solutions for worksites to inspire employees to be happier and more productive at work and at home. A healthier employee costs less, too. When workers feel better and more connected to their colleagues, they miss less work, make greater contributions, and have lower healthcare costs.
Blue Zones Project® makes it easy for schools to teach students how to lead longer, happier lives. Schools are already an essential part of helping kids make smart choices about staying healthy. By encouraging better eating habits, implementing tobacco-free policies, and increasing physical activity, schools can use Blue Zones Project to help students and parents form healthy habits for life.
There are plenty of choices when it comes to eating out. Blue Zones Project can help restaurants offer even healthier choices to keep and attract more customers. By surrounding ourselves with like-minded people who are focused on healthier living, we can move from dieting fads to meaningful lifestyle changes that drive more traffic to the restaurants that are offering healthier menu options.
From farmers markets to grocery stores, healthier food options are increasingly needed in Oregon. Blue Zones Project® can help local grocers educate their customers on improving their family’s nutrition and provide easier access to healthful and tasty foods. If you’re a local grocer, Blue Zones Project can help increase your traffic by making the healthy choice the easy choice.
Professional and lay leaders of all denominations can share the Blue Zones Project programs with their congregations to help attract new members and inspire current members to increase their attendance. When we give the entire faith-based community an opportunity to make positive changes, healthier, happier lives will follow.
Where we choose to live, work, play, and even the group of people with whom we spend our time, all influence the lifestyle choices we make. Blue Zones Project programs are designed to inspire, encourage, and promote well-being within your organization so your members are more socially connected and equipped to positively impact one another and the entire community.
Community policy has a big impact on healthy choices. Sidewalks, bike lanes, community gardens, mobile food markets, farmers markets, and other community infrastructures affect our ability to move naturally, connect socially, and access healthy food. When we make permanent changes to our surroundings, we can change behaviors and help our whole community lead healthier, happier, and longer lives.
