World’s Oldest Person Shares the Secrets to a Long Life

Eat. Sleep.

OLDESTWOMEN

Misao Okawa was born in Japan way back in 1898. On Wednesday, she’ll hit the amazing milestone of living for 116 years (she’s already recognized as the oldest person alive). So, the question on everyone’s mind is, understandably, what’s the secret?

“Eat and sleep and you will live a long time,” Okawa tells The Telegraph. She makes sure to hit her three meals a day (including delicious Japanese sushi), as well as the often recommended 8 hours of sleep per night.

Okawa had three children in her lifetime, with the surviving two of them following in their mother’s footsteps: they are currently aged 94 and 92. In addition, she boasts four grandchildren and a whopping six great-grandchildren. No matter how long she ultimately lives, Misao Okawa will certainly feel fulfilled.
