America’s golden girl Betty White is enjoying a beautiful and bountiful life, who turns 100 soon. When asked the same question and pat came her answer, pets, hot dogs, and vodka! So what keeps her so full of zest at this stage of her life?
Betty White rose to fame with The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Golden Girls, and Hot in Cleveland. She began working as an assistant on a local TV station and finally turned producer for Life with Elizabeth. Throughout, her career she acquired many awards, including 24 Emmy nominations, and went on to win 8. Nothing stopped her from achieving her goals, not even being a nonagenarian. She does not believe in slowing down. Here are a few lifestyle changes she has made over the years that have made her the star, the person she is today.
Movement is Key
While answering how she could stay so fit and active at her age, White put it down to genetics. Both her parents lived till they were right into their eighties. They were active till the very end. She has followed it to a T. She goes up and down the stairs multiple times a day, one because she keeps forgetting things, and another she gets her exercise this way.
Betty Does Not Forget to Treat Herself
White is not one to have salads for decades. She even suggested that she toss the salad into the garbage and have pork. She is someone who would rather treat herself from time to time and enjoy eating instead of skipping all her favorite foods and remaining miserable the entire time.
Also, she loves hot dogs and vodka. Now we know what keeps her so enthusiastic throughout. You have to enjoy what you have. Otherwise, there’s no point in pursuing it. Savor the foods you have in moderation as White does, and you are sure to reap maximum benefits.
She Remains Busy
An empty mind is a devil’s workshop. So, she keeps herself busy most of the time. Also, she has a fantastic agent who keeps her busy with work. Apart from being a good agent, she is passionate about what she does. She says it is important to find the things you enjoy to keep things interesting and not wear you out. If you do too many things all at once, you’ll find it extremely dreary. The good and interesting things will keep you on your toes and keep you happy.
Keep Your Sense of Humor Intact
Her lifestyle is not about maintaining a diet or exercising. Instead, it is all about having a good sense of humor. It is important not to take yourself too seriously. You can lie all you want, but you cannot lie to yourself. Also, it is important to stay positive throughout.
Optimism can get you far. It’s important not to complain too much and be too grumpy. Complaining about anything and everything is such a waste of time. She enjoys life like there is no tomorrow. Instead of looking into the negative aspect of things, look at the positive aspects of life and focus on them.
Exercise Her Mind
White keeps her mind sharp by indulging in games and puzzles. She is addicted to crossword puzzles. No wonder she keeps her mind buzzing all the time. One look at her will tell you that she always exudes infectious energy all the time.
No Diets For Her
While other celebs stick to rigorous diets, Betty’s not one to stick to a yo-yo diet life. While speaking about diets, like the grapefruit diet. She loves grapefruit, but she also loves other foods.
We agree, too. Drastic diets or fad diets are never a good idea. She hardly ever ventures into the kitchen, except perhaps to feed her dog. Although this is completely different from what you have heard all along, it makes you think. A stringent diet may not always be the best idea, rather it should all be in moderation.
There are so many aspects to Betty White. She is an actress, a humanitarian, and a junk food lover. Well, she is certainly an enigma, one who constantly entertains us with her lovely performances on-screen and her comely persona off-screen. Here’s to the grand young lady of Hollywood!
