The Weekly Dish: 03/04/2012

I am not a big vegetable person.  I am working on it.  However, I have always been interested in quality of life.  Living with intention and being healthy in a holistic way.  This video is about societies that have a larger population of people who live to be 100+ than normal.  It discusses their commonalities and what the researchers think are the keys to living longer.  My favorite part of this is the idea that you wake up knowing why you are alive and what you want to do.  I so want that.  I am working on it.  I think I am starting to hone in on the things that make me happiest and what gives me real fulfillment.  You should watch the video and tell me what you think!  TED- Dan Buettner: How to live to be 100+
