Can you Laugh your way to Longer Life?

The oldest documented person that ever lived was a French woman named Jeanne Calment who made it to 122 years, 164 days on this earth. What was her secret? According to French researcher Jean-Marie Robine, “She never did anything special to stay in good health.”

Jeanne Calment smoked cigarettes (started at age 21), drank port wine and ate a couple of pounds of chocolate sweets a week until she was 119 years old.
She credited her longevity to laughing a lot and not getting stressed out. She is quoted as saying “If you can’t do anything about it, don’t worry about it.” It probably didn’t hurt that her life circumstances — born into wealth and married wealthy — enabled a life of ease and comfort; in other words, no mental stress.
