Louise Jean confessed that one of the important things that has helped her to live so long is the fact that she loves to stay active. Even at 107 years old, Jean says that she always joins in with any exercises or dance classes at the community center.
As if we needed more of an excuse to eat Italian food, right? Jean believes the Italian diet is “very good for you,” and has enjoyed the cuisine her entire life. To top it off, the 107-year-old says that she never eats cake or drinks soda.
Time For Herself
Many people feel they are living their lives for other people. After all, we usually head to work and spend all our energy before heading home to prepare for another day in the office. Not Jean. She always makes sure she has time to pamper herself.
There is one tip that Jean has for everyone if they want to live a long life: don’t get married. That’s right; not walking down the aisle means Jean has always had time for herself. As if that wasn’t enough, Jean admits that her sister regularly confesses she wished she never got married after seeing Jean’s life.
While some of us want to live in the moment, others have goals of living as long as possible. For Jean, the key to a long life and reaching such a ripe old age has always been about following a few simple rules. The results? She’s got to enjoy 107 birthday parties over the year, and hopefully, there are many more on the cards.
