Every single morning is a new beginning, a blessing, and a second chance that was given to you to make your life better, healthier, and happier. So, if you are reading this now, be sure that you are such a lucky person because you are about to discover the secrets to longevity!
We all love life and I guess it’s something innate that we all somehow feel at a certain stage of our lives. We just hope we could live for longer with the people we love, see more of the world, and achieve great things that will make us immortal after we breathe our last!
However, the modern lifestyle, the stress, nutrition, and lack of exercise are all factors that lead us very early to the grave! But no worries, today we have collected some wise thoughts from the oldest people in the world that shall help you increase longevity and improve the quality of your life!
#1 – Eat eggs and Cookies
If you have been told that cookies are not healthy then you probably need to do by Emma Moran’s advice. This woman died last year at age of 117. She was the oldest person in the world and when she was asked about the diet she follows, she said that she eats two eggs a day and cookies.
Yes, we dare say that Emma was a smart woman that used to feed her body with a good quality of natural protein and her soul with the happiness she used to get from the tasty and crunchy bites of cookies.
Hence, when you feed your body, don’t forget about your soul! In other words, if you love cookies, eat them and never ever deprive yourself of the things you love!
#2 – Kindness
Kindness grows the spirit and strengthens the soul and the only way to feed your soul is by feeding the souls of others around you, including your family, friends, and even those people you have no relations with!
Love, kindness, and compassion are heavenly blessings that not everyone has and those who do are very simply blessed! The American Gertrude Weaver who died two years ago at age 116 revealed to Time Magazine her secret for a long and happy life saying that kindness is the key.
She also said that she strongly believes that the Lord blessed her with a long life because she is always kind, caring, and loving and that she has always been good to her family, children, and grandchildren!
#3 – George Burns
Of course, you are very familiar with this popular actor and comedian who died in 1996 at age of 100. It’s true that George Burns passed away, but he is definitely remained immortal due to all his great works and achievements.
When asked about the secret to longevity, George Burns had a different perspective! The key is not the food nor the regular trips to the gym, it is rather about everything that one has learned and experienced in life.
#4 – Eat Yammy things
Eating yummy and tasty desserts or any others foods that you love to bring joy to the heart! This perfectly explains why the Japanese Misao Okawa who died in 2015 at age of 117 said to an interviewer that the delicious things she eats are what made her live longer and happier.
#5 – Follow the 10 commandments
While the key to longevity to some was about the experiences they lived, the delicious foods they ate, and the kindness they have given to others, Violet Brown who died in Jamaica in 2017 at age of 117 revealed something really special!
She said that the secret lies in honoring one’s parents and being kind and nice to them. The good you are to them, the happier, the longer, and the more blessed your life will be.
#6 – No Gossip, Junk Food
Besse Cooper died in 2012 in Georgie when she was in her 116’s. She loved life and obviously, life loved her too! When Cooper was asked about the secret of her long life, she said that she minds her own business and never eats junk food. Two healthy ways to keep both your soul and body healthy forever after!
#7 – Bacon
If you don’t love eating bacon, then, you might start liking it now! Susannah Mushatt Jones died in 2016 at age of 116. This woman didn’t have the chance to reveal her secret about living such a long life but when her niece was interviewed by New York Post about the health routine of her granny, she said that Susannah used to love bacon and she would eat it all day long!
#8 – Honey, bee pollen
Fred Hale was quite a strong man! It’s true that he was very old, but his body was full of strength and power. At 103, Fred Hale Sr. was still shoveling snow and driving at 108, which is not something that all old people can do!
Unfortunately, he passed away in 2004 at age 113! It is said that he was a veteran beekeeper who used to consume a teaspoonful of honey and bee pollen every single day!
It’s true that he wasn’t a smoker and rarely he drank alcohol, but it is said that he used sometimes to wash the honey down with a breakfast nip of whiskey.
#9 – Magic Potion
Reg Dean died in 2013 when he was 110. At the time he was considered Britain’s oldest man and when he was asked about the key to longevity, he revealed his secret saying that when he was young, a doctor in Bombay gave him a magical potion to drink telling him that drinking it will make you live forever and it seems the doctor was right and Red Dean had quite a long life.
