Secrets to a longer life

Fountain of Youth:

Once I read that the oldest woman in the world.. she was 116 when I read this.. she would be 117 now if she is still alive. Eats bacon and takes a bath every morning. I eat bacon a lot.. not everyday mind you.. but it was the bath part that really got my attention.

She also credited lots of sleep and her family claims it was her loving and generous spirit that granted her a long life...

"I surround myself with love and positive energy. That’s the key to long life and happiness." ~Susannah Mushatt Jones (tweet this)

(but I digress.)

Healing Waters

What she says about life, I can say about my bath. I imagine the hot water is filling the tub with positive energy. I climb into like a womb and always emerge new again. Sometimes, I risk iphone damage by listening to a positive affirmation audio while in the tub. Sometimes, I light a candle. Always, I close my eyes and let the hot water embrace me.

If I am having a particularly bad day, I may take more than one bath. If I have to wash my hair, I will take a shower to wash my hair and then climb into the bath. (shh...don't tell my husband... he might freak out by all the water I am using up..)

Hello! I'm Miriam Schulman and I create mixed media art to tell stories. I also teach other people how to craft their stories with art. I give them the techniques they need to get the results they desire which brings more joy to their lives.

My art has been published by Somerset Studio, Art of Man and the New York Times among others and collected by an international audience. When I'm not working on art in my studio, you'll find me in a museum spending time with friends or family. Explore my art at SchulmanArt.com or join the fun at TheInspirationPlace.net

Now I want to hear from you. Which age defying secret are you willing to try? (more baths, bacon, sleep, or positivity?)
