The four rules that form longevity are a sensible diet, natural movement, communication with other people, and having a goal or worldview. People in the so-called "blue zones" - the most prosperous areas of our planet - now live by these rules.

The online publication Insider writes about this, "The Blue Zones come to life in a new series exploring their lessons in longevity." The four-part documentary (available on Netflix), Live to 100: Secrets of the Blue Zones, was directed by researcher Dan Buettner, who has been studying this phenomenon for the past 20 years.

Throughout the series, Buttner travels to Japan (Okinawa); Italy (Sardinia); Greece (Ikaria); Costa Rica (Nicoya); and California (Loma Linda). These regions are home to the largest number of centenarians today

By looking into their homes and interviewing the owners, Buettner tells the audience what these people eat and highlights other aspects of their lifestyle.

"The thing about the blue zones is that the people there are not living long because they're dieting, exercising and taking supplements," Buttner told CBS News. "They don't seek health, which in America would be considered a big aberration."

Instead, he said, in the "blue zones," longevity is due to a general lifestyle. "It's achieved by creating the right environment, which is formed there naturally," he says, adding that these ideas can be applied anywhere, regardless of age.

"These principles can be used at any time," he says. "At 60, you can add 6 extra years to your life. And in your 20s, if you live a 'blue zone' lifestyle, you can add 13 years to your life."

What is our mistake?

"We make about 220 food decisions a day. Only 10% of them are conscious, the other 200 are unconscious," Buettner explains.

"So the blue zone approach is not about disciplining and managing those 20 decisions but about helping you organize your eating and social life so that those 200 unconscious decisions... are a little bit better."
