Texas Wesleyan University is currently working towards becoming a Blue Zones Approved Worksite™ which puts best practices in place to improve the health and well-being of staff, faculty and students. A special thank you to our Blue Zones Project faculty and staff ambassadors for making this possible!
We are among the first organizations in Fort Worth to participate in Blue Zones Project, a community-wide well-being initiative designed to make healthy choices easier through permanent changes to the environment, policy and social networks. When our entire community participates—from worksites like ours to schools, restaurants and grocery stores—the small changes add up to huge benefits for all of us.
What began as a New York Times bestseller by National Geographic Fellow Dan Buettner has now evolved into a global movement that's inspiring people to live longer, more active lives with lower rates of chronic disease. View Dan Buettner’s TED Talk presentation, "How to Live to Be 100".
Blue Zones Project has strong support from the City of Fort Worth and Mayor Betsy Price, all three chambers of commerce and dozens of businesses and community leaders across the city. Now it's our turn to play a role in improving the well-being of our faculty, staff, students and community.
Texas Wesleyan University faculty and staff can take the pledge to support the Blue Zones® movement and to learn more about the simple lifestyle changes they can make to provide lasting benefits to their physical health, emotional health, and social relationships — adding years to their life expectancy and helping them to live longer.
