The Oldest Person In The World Reveals Her Secrets To Longevity

Ever wonder about the secrets to living a long life? Well, the oldest individual in the world has something to say about this from her own past experiences. Let’s learn from her advice and wisdom.

Susannah Mushatt Jones was born in 1899 and currently is 116 years of age. She has shared some secrets that have helped her to be the oldest person now alive on Earth. These secrets can help all of us prolong our lives and be happier. This is truly magical and wonderful at the same time. I hope you gain some wisdom from her example. Here are her secrets to living a long and healthy life.

Absolutely no smoking, partying, or drinking alcohol

She has not smoked and has stayed away from negative things like drugs, partying, and alcohol. Her respect for her body is one of the many reasons why she has lived such a long life.

Love the small things in life and make meaning of them

Susannah loves lace lingerie still tries new items whenever she has the opportunity to do so. A few years ago, doctors were stunned and shocked when they saw Susannah wearing a lace bra. She continues to love these small things that give her a great amount of joy.

Give love and respect to others

Susannah truly is a wonderful woman. She had no qualms with spending her salary on people close to her. She sent her nieces to college while she provided scholarships for other Alabama students so they would not be prevented from attending college, as she was.

Giving herself to others and sacrificing herself is something she’s done throughout her life. This is a notable quality that can’t be taken away from her. Love and respect are sometimes forgotten or dismissed in a world of panic, frenzy, and hurry. However, remembering them can help you become more grounded. Always respect and cherish all that you have. Susannah holds these traits very closely to her heart and moulds herself according to them.

Stick to a routine

Having a routine is an integral part of life. Loving your body, treating it like a temple, loving the small things, and loving others are priceless things — these are all parts of Susannah’s daily life and routine.

A routine gives us something to do and makes us look forward to things. A routine can seem boring, bleak, and dull, but if changed up here and there, it can be extremely beneficial to having a healthy mind, body, and soul.

Stop complaining

Susannah never complains about the pain she has to go through and instead takes it with a grain of salt. She knows that as her age increases, so does pain and illness. Rather than complaining and nagging, she simply goes with the flow.

I know as individuals, we can find it hard not to complain. There are plenty of times when we may find ourselves ruminating over the negative and squashing or obliterating the positive. Let us learn from Susannah and her zeal for life. She truly is wonderful.

Eat fruit

Susannah loves eating her fair share of fruit, and this helps to maintain her body and keep it healthy and stable. Fruit is packed with energy and she loves her fruit, finding enjoyment in each sweet bite. She likes to stay healthy and eating fruit is one of the many factors that contributes to her overall healthiness.

There is so much to be learned from this woman and she is so inspirational. By following her example and leading healthy and full lives, perhaps we can all aspire to someday match her in age.

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

A honeymoon is important.  The wedding is over.  The months, or even years, of stress and planning are finally over.  It’s time for the two of you to relax, settle in, and start enjoying your time together as you embark on your first journey as a family.

To make the most of this time for the least amount of money, it’s important to focus on what you want out of a honeymoon.  This isn’t your typical list of touristy honeymoon locations everyone goes to.  Rather, it’s a list of cheap honeymoon experiences a couple can enjoy together, regardless of where it’s at.

1. Camping

A week long camping trip is a fantastic way to see how you mesh together as a couple.  You’re put in a low impact “survival” situation where it’s just the 2 of you and nature.  You have a chance to see how your new spouse handles themselves when left with the basics of life.  There are amazing national parks all over the United States where you can camp for a week for $20-30, disconnect from technology, and enjoy some of the natural wonders our nation has to offer.

2. Staycation

You don’t have to go anywhere for a honeymoon.  In fact, the tradition of taking a honeymoon vacation is a relatively new one.  Prior to the 19th century, a honeymoon involved staying home together for a month to get to know each other physically.  Think of how blissful it could be to take a full month off work, disconnect from the outside world, and focus entirely on projects together.  You may not be wowing your friends and family with pictures of some exotic location, but they’ll be envious of your escape from the rat race nonetheless.

3. Island Getaway

People tend to overspend on their honeymoon vacations to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc.  Going to these places doesn’t have to be expensive.  You don’t need to stay in a 5 star resort when you’re on a Best Western budget.  You’re there to be in the atmosphere of the island, not a hotel room. Book a cheap flight and sleep in a hotel alternative, on the beach or in your car.  It’s the view in paradise that really matters.

4. Fancy Resort

Book an expensive resort, spa, or retreat in the city you live in.  While this may seem counterintuitive as a cheap destination, when you consider your savings on airfare and other travel costs, you can afford to be treated like royalty within your own city limits.  If you book a honeymoon package, you’ll end up with a lot of free amenities and extra attention.  There’s no need to fly halfway across the world to live the good life.

5. Road Trip

The journey is often more fulfilling than the actual destination.  If you fly out to some exotic locale, you’ll be stuck on a plane for 8-30 hours.  Rent a luxury car, pick a handful of places you each have always wanted to visit, and go on an adventure.  You can keep food costs down by packing your own snacks, but it’s always a good idea to sample the local delicacies wherever you go, even if it’s only a few states over.

6. Charter a Boat

If the ocean is your thing, a week-long cruise can cost you $1500-$3000 per person, depending on the destination.  You also have to factor in travel costs to and from the cruise, alcohol, souvenirs, and on-shore excursions.  You’ll also be surrounded by people.  For the same price (and often much cheaper), you can charter your own boat and enjoy the experience in private.

7. Las Vegas/Atlantic City

If gambling is your thing, these are the places to do it.  Which one you choose depends on your preference, budget, and proximity.  The way to make this vacation cheaper is to gamble smart.  Stay away from low odd tables (i.e craps, roulette) and read up on the MIT blackjack strategies to beat the house.  If you do it right, you can win enough for a free trip (and gain a valuable team skill in the process).

8. Themed Retreats

There are weeklong retreats all over the world where you can fully immerse yourselves as a couple into a hobby you’re both passionate about.  Go on a yoga/meditation retreat, a ranch, a vineyard/farm, a backpacking adventure, treasure hunt, or whatever you’re into.

9. Working Honeymoon

Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be a vacation.  For a truly memorable experience, dedicate a week to a charity or volunteer organization.  You can drive out to a campground to help restore it in the offseason.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to volunteer to help out your local animal shelter, plant trees, help the homeless, etc.  Use the time to do something together as a couple that will fulfill you spiritually while contributing to the community.  Just because you’re on a honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be productive.

10. Festivals, Fairs & Special Events

Every city, state, and country has festivals, fairs, and special events.  Find one you’re interested in.  If you time your wedding right, your honeymoon can be a trip to one of these festivals.  Burning Man, SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Renaissance Fair, regional harvest festivals, Mardi Gras, New Years Eve in Times Square, a movie premiere, or whatever you’re into.  If you plan your honeymoon at the right time in the right place, the possibilities are endless.
