One news that caught my attention today is the death of the world’s oldest man, Walter Breuning. He died in Montana at 114. What really struck me were his secrets to longevity which are:
Embrace change, even when the change slaps you in the face. ("Every change is good.")
Eat two meals a day ("That's all you need.")
Work as long as you can ("That money's going to come in handy.")
Help others ("The more you do for others, the better shape you're in.")
"We're going to die. Some people are scared of dying. Never be afraid to die. Because you're born to die," he said.
Also, for Walter Breuning, the keeping the mind and body active is imperative to long life. He said, "Everybody says your mind is the most important thing about your body. Your mind and your body. You keep both busy, and by God you'll be here a long time.”
