Betty White celebrated her 98th birthday on January 17 but for her, age is just a number because she has a few secrets to aging well.
The Golden Girls star has still been making us laugh with her strength and grace. So, what are the secrets of her life?
The unstoppable White has spanned nearly seven decades in Hollywood and she is showing no signs of giving up.
She advises people to keep themselves busy. In 2017, she told Kate Couric that keeping yourself busy is the key to staying happy and healthy.
She said, “Keep busy, and don’t focus everything on you—that wears out pretty fast. It’s not hard to find things you’re interested in, but enjoy them, and indulge them and, I think that keeps you on your toes.”
Another secret to her long life is staying optimistic. In an interview with Parade in 2018, she said, “I know it sounds corny, but I try to see the funny side and the upside, not the downside. I get bored with people who complain about this or that. It’s such a waste of time.”
For the Hot in Cleveland actress, age is just a number. In 2011, she said, “I never thought about age much. I learned that at my mother’s knee. Age was not important. It was where your head was.”
Last but not the least, White recommends you to treat yourself. She said it is sustainable if you deprive yourself of your favorite foods. She always tries to meet her craving, especially when it comes to her favorites – vodka and hot dogs. Well, it seems to be working for her even at the age of 98.
