A LIFE WELL LIVED

A LIFE WELL LIVED

‘Blue Zones’ are where we all want to live – if you’re in one, you’re likely to live longer. Much longer. The term was coined by author Dan Buettner, who was studying areas of the world in which people live exceptionally long lives. He identified a handful, but of course, there will be numerous others which have all the lifestyle ingredients to become so-called Blue Zones.

Like the exquisite Kwazulu-Natal North Coast – like The Reserve on Zululami Luxury Coastal Estate.

What makes a Blue Zone so blue? Apparently, it’s a great deal to do with lifestyle and attitudes to life. While genetics are determinants of longevity, they are in fact only responsible for 20 to 30 percent. The rest is all about your environmental influences: what you eat, how you sleep, if and how you exercise, and whether you have good spiritual, family and social networks.

If you drill down into exercise in a Blue Zone, it’s not about going to gym, but rather the exercise built into your lifestyle. Living at The Reserve on Zululami Luxury Coastal Estate means that exercise is an integral part of your day-to-day. Running, walking or cycling through a natural environment is the type of physical-mental exercise in which Blue Zoners thrive; just as much as living, smelling and hearing the ocean promotes a good night’s sleep – a strongly contributing factor to longevity.

It’s about an attitude to life. Living at The Reserve, the extraordinary environment here contributes to a positivity, a desire to live life well, to be creative, to be healthy. You‘ll part of a community of 60 homes and families, a village-like, close-knit community within the broader social ecosystem of Zululami – it’s this feeling of belonging, of being supported, of interacting, which promotes good family and social networks. And that puts The Reserve – and Zululami Luxury Coastal Estate – firmly into the Blue Zone. So why not pay us a visit? Come breathe in the salty sea air, feel the sun on your skin and picture yourself living a life well-lived.
