Humanity has been possessed with increasing human’s life anticipation since the start of time. Lots of people have claimed to carry the secrets for a long, healthy, and happy life.
But, here is one reason for longevity that you might have never thought of!
It all began in 2015 when Holiday Retirement conducted a huge national survey over America. They scrutinised seniors who were more than 100 years old and sought to reveal their reason for living that long.
That survey concluded with some very nice results and a broad range of tips on how to live longer and healthier.
As many seniors declared, it was all about family, while others claimed that living life to the fullest was most important to extend your life span.
But along with all of these responses, one of the most shocking responses came from a 109-year-old woman named Jessie Gallan.
She born in 1906, Jessie was grown on a family farm and she was born in the little town of Kintore, Scotland. There she lived with her parents and a total of six siblings.
She lived a simple and rural life. She slept in a cottage, tending to the land, and living openly. She went to school for a short period of time before finding a decent job in a local farm kitchen.
She worked for a very wealthy family that allowed her to move on to working in the service industry.
Later in her life, Jessie moved into the Crosby House. That’s a home for lonely or ill seniors in need. Gillian Bennet, one of the workers at Crosby House said:
“Jessie is a lovely woman. She has got her best friend here, Sarah Jane, and they are always together. She likes her music and likes her exercise class and is a very independent person. She is always walking about.”
Sorrowfully, Jessie died in March of 2015, yet she was able to provide the secret for her longevity before her death.
“My secret to a long life has been staying away from men,” Jessie noted. “They’re just more trouble than they’re worth.” She also revealed an extra secret to her longevity: “I like my porridge. I have all my life.
