At Venerdi we are nuts about human well-being and we believe that the relationships we make can have large impact on this. This month we have been busy researching different ways, through mind, fuel and movement, that our relationships can impact our well-being.

Our friends at the Blue Zone tell us that the world’s longest lived people choose, or were born into, social circles that support healthy behaviours. Okinawans create “moais” – groups of five friends that commit to each other for life. Research show that smoking, obesity, happiness and even loneliness are contagious. By contrast, social networks of long-lived people favourably shape their health benefits.

Blue Zone’s have created a checklist to help you optimize your life for maximum health and happiness. Follow the link below to determine how your three closest friends are positively influencing your life and which areas need improving.
