We lost an important icon to American television and acting personalities recently when Betty White passed away at almost 100 years old. She lived a long and eventful life, spending much of it in the media spotlight from her acting career and general outspoken personality. Millions of people adored Betty White, and many of us are amazed at how long of a life she was able to live for. It’s no big surprise that subsequently she has spoken a lot in the past about how she lived so long. Here are some of those tips that she gave as Betty White’s secrets to longevity.
Betty always talked openly about her dog and how much she loved being a pet owner, which researchers have linked to longer living or more healthy living in plenty of ways over the years. Animals can truly be a wonder for our physical and mental wellbeing, which directly relates to how long or well we are able to live. So maybe Betty White’s partial secret was her pets!
The most important and stressed thing that White always told interviewers when asked about her long career and how she handled it all was positive living. She said it was most important to enjoy life, focus more on positive things than the negative, and look for the good to be grateful for. This perspective has dozens of benefits, so it’s possible this helped her lifetime a great deal.
It may not seem like it, but our beloved Betty White loved to advocate for her own simple and free way of eating. She loved hot dogs, ate what she wanted, avoided dieting, and ate when she was hungry. Betty didn’t particularly believe in the food negativity for certain types of foods or eating schedules, and ate in a way similar to intuitive eating which has been proven beneficial.
While there were some things this amazing woman did in life that were quite above others, and some things that she liked in life could be linked to living better or longer; Betty herself always ended most conversations on her career and lifetime on her luck. She believed very strongly that she was truly lucky to have her astounding career and lifetime, so maybe nothing was scientific.
Betty White certainly had a lot to say on important topics throughout her lifetime, and she did a lot in our world. Talking about her long life was just another normal thing for the wonderful woman since many interviewers and fans wondered as her age reached 80, then 90, and she still seemed quite healthy and happy. Betty will be greatly missed by millions after her death, and we can memorialize her by remembering some tips and thoughts she shared in her lifetime-especially ones that may be uniquely useful to anyone out there!
