Okay, let’s be real. If Betty White is throwing a birthday party, I would like to get my hands on an invite. After all, the 98-year-old Golden Girl credits vodka and hot dogs to her long, healthy life. Can you imagine how much of a blast it’ll be? Vodka and hot dogs? And “lots and lots of it.”
Now that I’m a quarter century, my eyes have been lingering longer on the eye creams and wrinkle-reducing masks at Sephora. The number of supplements I take every day is kind of frightening. The truth is, I dread getting older.
Well, according to White, a little bit of booze and processed meat is the key.
OK, that doesn’t mean everyone needs to go hard on multiple bottles of Grey Goose daily, but she may be onto something.
A study indicates people who drink moderately were over 20% less likely to die early of any cause. In fact, this 100-year-old woman credits a daily pint of Guinness with her long life.
White also adds an optimistic mindset leads to happier life.
“Enjoy life. Accentuate the positive, not the negative. It sounds so trite, but a lot of people will pick out something to complain about, rather than say, ‘Hey, that was great!’ It’s not hard to find great stuff if you look.”
True that, sister! Cheers to the true queen and happy birthday!
Now, who wants to come to my barbecue party this weekend? I’ll get the vodka and hot dogs ready!
