A Real-Life Never-Never Land Where Men & Women Don't Just Live Longer... They Live Years Younger Than Their Age!
If a real-life Never-Never Land existed on planet Earth, it would no doubt be found on the island of Japan. In fact, the last 3 men to hold the record for oldest on Earth were all Japanese… These were not pampered men, nor did they live with the same conveniences of life that you and I have now. They worked as farmers and laborers their entire lives. But these men didn’t just live longer, they lived younger too!
Jiroemon Kimura retired at age 65 and then picked up farming until he was 90 and STILL lived for another 2 decades. Timoji Tanabe still read and journaled every single day with laser focus and boundless mental energy even past his hundredth birthday! But it’s not just a few curious cases sprinkled throughout the country… It seems the entire population has figured out the secret to feeling younger.
In fact, of the 100 oldest people living today nearly 30% are from Japan. And one region of this never-aging country reigns supreme. It’s called Okinawa and it’s often referred to as “The Land of the Happy Immortals” because it’s people seem to have beaten the aging process. People from this part of the world live longer than anywhere else on Earth. They’re often healthy, active, and have a youthful glow beyond their years. Energetic great-grandparents live independently in their own homes, tend to their small gardens, and enjoy visits from grandchildren old enough to qualify for Social Security in our country… Insane!
And people don’t seem to suffer from the debilitating symptoms of “aging” that we do. They have slim, lithe bodies; sharp, clear eyes; quick wits; passionate interests; amazing minds; and the kind of youthful glow we Westerners crave - but can’t ever seem to achieve. Many of them keep up with work, hobbies, and friends... And when they do pass on, it’s almost always on their terms. Surrounded by those who care for them, and never a burden or strain on those they leave behind.
