Life Lessons From 100-Plus-Year-Olds


I found an article, from Dr. Mercola, which highlights tips  from astounding individuals who are 100+ years old. I knew I had to share this, because my own beautiful, wonderful and amazing Grandmother will turn 100 years old in March.

This one is dedicated to you Grandma!

When you watch the video, (13:29)  you’ll see they don’t look anywhere near their chronological age. What are their secrets? (These come directly from the article)

  1. Emotional Resilience and Optimism Help You Stay Young at Heart
  2. Centenarians Eat Real Food…(The Purple Almond adds: Hmmm-who’s been telling you to do this? 😉 )
  3. Strong Relationships, Fond Memories and Living in the Moment
  4. Helping Others Will Come Back to You Hundreds-Fold
  5. Being a Lifelong Learner Is Linked to Longevity
  6. There Is No Set Pattern for Why Some People Live to 100 and Beyond
  7. ‘Keep Right on to the End of the Road’

Here is the video, directly from the article:

Three centenarians share words of wisdom on longevity; although each is unique, they share an impressive amount of fortitude and emotional resilience.

About Tamara Hoerner (1258 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  6. Happy Birthday from me too! I have a wonderful neighbour who is 102 and my own great-grandmother lived to that great age too. She was a wonderfully funny lady who looked like a frail sparrow but gave as good as she got when my dad would tease her.

  7. Thank you so much for sharing this. I no longer have a grandma. Will my mom turn 100? I don’t know. I’m reading, Being Mortal by Atul Gawande which is a little sad so I’m glad for this wonderful post.
