Is there a single way to get fit? Be healthy? And, most importantly, be happy? Nope. There are a million ways to live.
There are healthy people around the world with different personalities, cultures, beliefs, goals, and countries who find health and happiness in their own unique way. We focus on what they all have in common: Healthy Lifestyle Principles:
Real Food, Movement, Rest & Relaxation
Lifelong Learning, Community and Love.
Join us as we travel around the world to show you incredible people with amazing stories that are sure to inspire and motivate you.
Here’s a trailer to our series that shows the six principles in action. After a few episodes, we hope everyone is a little more open-minded and accepting of other ways of life and finding happiness.
After all, we’re all trying to find the same things in life: health and happiness.
Luke is the Creator, Producer, and Host of Million Ways to Live. He enjoys doing handstands, playing with his son Jack, and living the life of a nelipot.
He wrote a book, Million Ways to Live, and now he's traveling around the world making this documentary series. He truly believes there is no single correct way to live and wants to celebrate the world's cultural diversity while promoting open-mindedness and acceptance.
Luke is a student of the human body. A former professional football player and Certified Public Accountant, Luke found his passion for life diving into the diverse realms of healthy living. He's got plenty of professional credentials not worth mentioning here.
He tries to live his life by the six Healthy Lifestyle Principles in the book and web series (Real Food, Movement, Rest & Relaxation, Lifelong Learning, Community, and Love), but on the road living in the moment is much more important and fulfilling.
The Million Ways to Live trip and project has opened up his heart and mind to the many lessons life is constantly teaching us. Through the eyes and perspectives of the people he meets and films, he hopes to communicate just a small number of those epiphanies.
He maintains his sanity by meditating and practicing mindfulness throughout the day. He enjoys being uncomfortable because it's the only way to grow. And it's fun... it's funcomfortable.
A former TV Journalist in New Zealand, Claire Robbie is a yoga teacher/student and hosted several episodes of Million Ways to Live in Oceania, North America, South America and Europe. She also assisted in production and camerawork in South America and Europe.
Jack Jozef Sniewski (aka Little Blue, aka Bruiser, aka Destroyer, aka Giggles) pretty much ran the show at Million Ways to Live. He decided when everyone ate, worked, and slept.
Jack served as the team's official CSI (Chief Sleep Interrupter). Before reaching the ripe old age of 19 months, he had visited 22 countries before returning to New Zealand to start a promising career as a toddler.
Bensen Fan left behind the incredibly exhilarating job of software engineer to join the Million Ways to Live team as an all-in-one assistant, nanny, and helper. He even did a little camera work. He was with the team in South America and Africa.
Emily Randall joined the journey for the project's time in Europe after working at Playing For Change, an organization creating peace through music. She served as the team's super-nanny and helped with promotion.
Daniel Nielsen Mathiasen hosted the team in Copenhagen, Denmark, but decided to formally join the project as a cameraman and super-assistant in Asia. He had to face all his fears, insecurities, and doubts when joining the project, inspiring the whole team (and his family and friends back in Denmark) in the process. He's the team's official morale booster.
