Life Lessons From 100-Year-Olds

  • Published on Dec 23, 2016
  • We asked three centenarians what their most valuable life lessons were, and also their regrets.
    The conversations that followed were remarkable. They talked about the importance of family, people, relationships and love. Their view on life, as an elderly citizen with a lot of experience is truly an inspiration and motivation. Enjoy the video!

    No mental health problem or major health problems. They had tough times. Is it their wonderful positive attitude or good food , no processed rubbish, my great nan was the same. She had a bowl of porridge, a cup of tea and fell asleep at 98. I hope that runs in my family.

    So much respect. We all can learn from anybody who lives 100+ years. The only sad part is your going to see a lot of loved ones pass. Possibly even your own children. Be nice and love the People closet to you....nothing last forever.

    I had a friend who lived to be 107. We shared the same birthday. She was glad for her long life, but sad that she'd watched all her friends, her husband, & almost all her children die before her. Life is a beautiful thing, and living a long one can be wonderful, but it's painful, too. We each do our best, & it's heartwarming to hear how these wise souls have done theirs.

    Life lessons and regrets are not the same thing. I'm not quite 100, but I have no regrets. I have learned from every experience, therefore it was never a mistake that needed to be regretted. That in itself is a life lessons to be learned.

    All these 100+ year olds have in common is that they are all very positive,
    studies have also shown that positive people live longer which this just emphasizes.

    Good advice for kids. Listen to the advice of your parents although you may decide to do something else. And by extension, parents,do not hold back in giving advice to your kids but don't be too upset when they do something else.
