How My Skin Stays Looking So Young

I am always asked how I stay looking so young. Almost no one believes that I am over 100 years old. Rest, exercise and a good diet are all huge contributors, but taking care of your skin is sometimes overlooked.

UsanaLogo Today, in conduction with USANA Health Sciences, I am launching on online store where you can buy some of the pure botanical skin products I like to use.

Beware of fraud

It has come to my attention recently that there are a few rogue websites out there claiming to be “official” sites that use my name and likeness. Some of them are even asking you for money for newsletters, videos, subscriptions and books.


All others are fake and are trying to capitalize on my history.

Unfortunately, the Internet can be a place where people take advantage of others and intellectual property laws can be flouted. I apologize if any of you have had a bad experience with any of these phony websites. Please know that we are taking all necessary legal steps to have these sites shut down, but please help me spread the word.

Thank you for all your support, and I apologize again if anyone has been harmed by these other sites.

Happy birthday to me

August 17 is my 109th birthday. I want to thank all of you for making this past year one of the most enjoyable in recent memory.

I’m still traveling, still speaking in public, working on my second book and still drinking my Superfood every morning. I have no plans to slow down, so stay tuned for what’s next.

I don’t have any big plans to celebrate today, but I am grateful for another year with good friends and my loving family.

Happy birthday to me!

Raw Life Health Show interview

I spent this past Christmas with my family in South Florida. One of my daughters, one of my grandsons, his wife and my two great-grandchildren all live in Miami and it was wonderful to spend some time with time with them.

While I was there, my friend Paul Nison filmed a three part interview with me for his “Raw Life Health Show.” It was shot on December 27, 2009 and it was a lot of fun.

I will post the second and third parts over the coming days. Hope you enjoy it.

On the road again

I am very excited to be taking a much needed trip down to South Florida to visit with my daughter, my grandson and his wife and my two great-grandchildren. Nothing makes me feel more alive than being with my family, and I get especially tickled when I get to spend time with my great grandchildren.

My grandson is going to shoot some video of me while I am down there, and I plan to release some videos to help promote  the book and this blog. Stay tuned.

Thanks to all of you for your support so far, and I will be in touch again soon.

My purpose in life

I feel that I must continue to learn all I can about nutrition, health and longevity through reading and attending meetings and seminars. I also feel that it is my purpose to disseminate what I know, to the best of my ability, that which I have learned and which works for me.

That, of course, is the purpose behind the book. I truly want everyone to have what I have, and to never doubt that it’s possible to live a long life free of disease and mental decline. Another aspect of living on purpose is to try and focus on what is  happening NOW. Think about this for a moment: How much of your day do you suppose is spent savoring the moment, and how much is spent regretting some event from the past or dreading some imagined future? If you are like most people, odds are that thoughts of the Now do not just take a back seat to “more pressing” concerns, but are probably not even in the same vehicle.

Have you ever watched a young child as they go about their activities during the day? Hours can be spent just watching an inchworm move across a limb or examining a stone or a leaf. That child is probably not thinking about whether they might have left the stove on, or where the receipts are for the tax man, or why they made that stupid joke at the company Christmas party two years ago. That child spends the better part of each and every day in the Now, and they are healthy, happy and well-adjusted because of it.
