Blue Zones Project
Los lugares de trabajo tienen el poder de ayudarnos a permanecer activos, a comer mejor y a socializar unos con otros. Pasamos aproximadamente un tercio de nuestro día en el trabajo y, hoy en día, son menos los empleos que requieren actividad física moderada—un porcentaje que ha disminuido del 50% en 1960 al 20% en la actualidad. Los lugares de trabajo de la siguiente lista están invirtiendo en la salud de sus empleados y han obtenido la distinción de Blue Zones Project Aprobada™.
