Life lessons from centurions

Centurions (people over 100) always seem content. Below are seven of the reasons for a happy and fulfilled life as per three centurions:

Happiness comes from what we do - Focus on experiences vs. possessions. Happy memories can go a long ways toward happiness.

Happiness comes from a positive attitude and optimism - Deciding life is good changes our perception and makes life better.

Happiness comes from living in the now - The past is the past; we can’t change it. But we can rob ourselves of our present by hanging onto old regrets, grudges, and pain.

Eat natural, real food to feel good - Eat in moderation, and stay active physically and mentally.

Learn to adapt - Understand that there are hardships in life, and life goes on and you must too.

Help others - Being kind and helping others gives you a sense of purpose, and is a win-win for everyone involved.

Always keep learning - Be curious; it makes life more exciting and fun.
