Albert Lea Residents Add 3.1 Years of Life Expectancy
Date:10/13/2009

leaders encouraged gardening in new community gardens and at home.

Third, social circles were emphasized and encouraged, because who your friends are has a powerful impact on your long-term health behaviors.

  • More than 600 citizens of Albert Lea joined walking "moais" -- or social groups -- to promote exercise while strengthening social bonds and bringing neighbors together. Collectively the moais walked more than 75 million steps, or 37,558 miles.

And, finally, residents were given the opportunity to explore their "purpose" in life and to give back to their community. Having a sense of purpose is a key factor in increasing your life expectancy.

  • More than 150 volunteers joined as "Vitality Project Ambassadors" to promote this project.
  • Citizens logged more than 2,200 hours worth of additional community service hours.
  • More than 1,000 residents participated in a "Purpose Seminar" led by national purpose expert Dr. Richard Leider.

The town leaders plan to continue the progress toward a healthier city and AARP The Magazine will feature the project in its January/February issue, in addition to returning to Albert Lea in a year to track the progress. Additional information can be found at www.aarp.org/bluezonesproject.
