I discovered this highly interesting video on YouTube today in which three particular people have been interviewed, each being over 100-years-old.

Absorbed by what they were sharing, I patiently watched the video until the end. The second time taking notes. Highlighting the main ideas and advice each one was pointing out in their monologue and adding them in a list I wanted to share with you down below.

Although I highlight the main ideas from my perspective and point of view, I’d like to kindly invite you to also watch the video and hear what they have to share with each one of us. I might have slipped out a detail you might really need and adore.

  1. Be helpful and keep going.
  2. Eat healthy. Grow your own food if possible.
  3. Don’t consider anything a failure. If you’re making a cake and it fails, it becomes a pudding.
  4. If problems arrive you get through them. (Nowadays people tend to give up too easily)
  5. Make the most of it. Especially if it is  the first love. There is nothing like it.
  6. The loss of a child can heal, because life goes on, regardless. You get healed, but you never forget.
  7. A major regret: not being more attentive and active in school. The sooner you start studying, the better.
  8. You’ve got to keep up with the times.
  9. Communicate, speak with your parents. Take their advice or at least consider it.
  10. If you find the right person – marry. Not just live together. Marriage brings people closer.
  11. If you are happily married and happily living, that is the finest remedy for all illness. Because everything is in perfect harmony.
  12. Be as independent as you can, but don’t be reluctant to ask for help when you think you need it.
  13. Behave well to others. Show them respect. Help them as much as you possibly can and it will be repaid hundredfolds.
