What makes for a healthy, happy human?

Dan Buettner, author, athlete, and National Geographic explorer, has traversed the world searching far and wide for the answer—and he's found it. His book, The Blue Zones, identifies the five areas of the world where people live the longest and are healthiest, snagging the secrets to longevity along the way. (Hint: Nurturing your personal relationships, eating a plant-based diet, and sleeping eight—yes, eight—hours a night all play a role.)

His latest project, The Blue Zones of Happiness, goes a step further to look into the pockets of the world that have the happiest people. In this extremely candid podcast episode, he spills the extent to which money buys fulfillment, the most joyous age, and what you can do to become the happiest version of yourself every day, no matter where you live. Along the way, he shares whether exercise, coffee, and social media are helping or harming our moods, and his insights will definitely surprise you.
