Create a Cyan Zone at your home, Issue #01 -- features of green living and vibrant old age.
June 17, 2020
Greeting from Bernard Preston to this first email about how to create a cyan zone at your home.
Firstly, I undertake not to spam you with daily emails promoting this or that product. Once a week will be the maximum, and more likely a month.
What is a cyan zone? There are three primary colours; red, blue and green. Mix the latter two and you get the colour cyan, also better known perhaps as turquoise.
This is our cyan-coloured electric car, well named a Leaf.
Blue zonesThere are four unique areas in the world where living to a vibrant old age is the norm, and ten times as many people reach one hundred years. In blue zones they care for themselves, and their families and friends, in ways which the rest of us scorn to one degree or another, and reap a terrible harvest of poor health and unhappiness.
We can learn a lot from blue zone people. Blue zone longevity
Green zonesGreen zones need no introduction; we are all aware of the huge move to save the planet from climate change, plastic waste, chemically hazardous material, air pollution and so on.
If we are honest the majority scorn this too; not by what they say, but by what they do. This they would deny vigorously, but quite ardently refuse to even attempt to recycle their waste, the very least we all could and should do. The green journey
Cyan zonesCyan zones try to take the best from green and blue, caring for both ourselves and the planet.
This newsletter is for you if you want to enjoy better health and a cleaner world, and you are willing to ring in some changes to your way of life. Yes, it will cost time and energy, and commitment. It doesn't come cheap.
We rationalise that you would otherwise spend twice as much time, energy and money on consulting doctors; the cost of cleaning the air, seas and landfills is unimaginable.
Could you today make a small start to creating a cyan zone at your home?
In each newsletter we will alternate between these two issues. If something resonates with you, then turn off the telly and get busy. What is a cyan zone?
Caring for yourself and the family
Add many coloured foodsIn this awful time of the coronavirus pandemic we are beginning to realise most of us are going to eventually be exposed to this nasty bug, no matter how hard we try. Wearing masks, social distancing and repeated washing of our hands only puts off from this week to the inevitable next month.
By doing these things we give ourselves a window of opportunity to get our houses in order, so to speak.
There is strong research showing after following a large group for twenty years that those who eat seven or more coloured foods every day have a thirty odd percent lower all cause of death; that is massive. The quantity is less important, so just a sprig of parsley would count.
Our philosophy is keep it simple; quick and easy, or slow food made fast. With that in mind we are going to kick off with this perfect butternut smoothie. In just five minutes you already have five coloured foods under the belt.
There is a little sting in the tail; first you have to make a butternut soup. The greatest cost when it comes to stepping up to greater well-being is time.
Like I said, invest the time happily or you will be spending twice as much consulting doctors.
It is the phytochemicals in coloured foods that support our immune systems so that when you are exposed to the C-19 virus, as you surely will be, you will with a bit of luck shake it off in a week or two. Yes, you will get sick, perhaps very ill, but it will not kill you. Perfect butternut smoothie So, that's it for this week. Step up to better health; take care of Mother Earth. Do it passionately and happily; start creating your own little cyan zone.
