Sup Travellers?! When it comes to long life no one can give you better advice than someone who has lived long. Am I right? All these fresh out of college doctors claim to know the secret to a long and healthy life but they have never experienced it and experience is the best teacher. So if a 116 year old woman tells you that the secret to long life is plenty sushi and long naps, you better believe it.

Japanese elder, Misao Okawa is celebrating her 116th birthday today and she has gracefully chosen to bestow upon us the secrets to her longevity. It's not the typical piece of advice. “Eat and sleep and you will live a long time,” she told the Telegraph. “You have to learn to relax.”

Born in Osaka in 1898, Okawa became the world’s oldest person in June of 2013 when fellow Japan native Jireomon Kimura died at the age of 116.

“Mrs. Okawa eats three large meals a day and makes sure that she sleeps eight hours a night,” said Tomohito Okada, the head of the retirement home Okawa has been staying at for the past 18 years. “She insists that her favorite meal is sushi, particularly mackerel on vinegar-steamed rice, and she has it at least once every month.”

I'm beginning to think that Sushi is actually the secret to long life. We all know that Japanese love sushi and as of now there are more than 54,000 people living in Japan over the age of 100. Now that is performance. Maybe Sushi is the magic formula for long life. She also says that long naps can make you live longer but if that was the case then a whole lot of us would be immortals [LOL]. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
