Blue Zone Principles for Longevity
Date: June 24, 2022
Time: 3.00pm – 4.00pm CET
In this workshop, we will explore the secret to living a longer, healthier life!
Researchers spent a decade researching the habits of the longest living communities in the world and discovered the secrets that allow inhabitants to live to 100 and beyond.
National Geographic studied the lifestyle and eating habits of these communities around the globe and found a number of things in common. In Okinawa, Japan; Sardinia Italy; Ikaria Greece; Nicoya, Costa Rica and Loma Linda, California USA – called the Blue Zones – inhabitants live longer, with fewer diseases and rate higher happiness than people in other parts of the world. What are their secrets?
Bernadette Keogh is originally from the UK and has been residing in The Netherlands since 2015. She is a corporate wellbeing training facilitator, mindfulness and mindful eating coach and registered nutritional therapist. She has a passion to help people live healthier and happier lives through cultivating mindful awareness and a positive mindset, as well as empowering people to make the right food choices to help them realise their health goals. As Bernadette quickly approaches her 50th birthday, healthy ageing and longevity are at the heart of her research. She works with individual clients as well as developing and facilitating group courses and workshops. Focus is placed on both the outer wisdom (eg latest evidence-based nutrition knowledge) and inner wisdom (eg awareness of body cues such as hunger and fullness, awareness of emotions), to ensure a holistic and sustainable approach to health.
Prior to her career in wellbeing, Bernadette worked for over 15 years in high profile partnership development and digital marketing roles. She now brings her life experience to her training and coaching sessions, allowing her to connect with the challenges her clients and participants are facing and work on practical solutions to create the conditions for positive change in people’s lives. This includes raising self-awareness, connecting with goals and values and implementing new habits that will lead to long-term health benefits and wellbeing.
