Old advice from a 108-year-old woman: Work, but have more fun
The secret to a long and happy life is work, but always if it is accompanied by a nap at lunch and lots of fun. This is the advice of a great-grandmother in England who has just turned 108 years old.
Mary Ann Clifton, also known as Rosina, lives in Orpington, south east London. On her surprise birthday, she also received a wish from King Charles.
She says that work, no matter how tiring and difficult, will not affect your life expectancy if you also reserve beautiful moments for yourself.
"Work hard, but party even more. Hard work won't hurt you at all,” she says.
Mary Ann Clifton was born on March 16, 1915 in Lambeth, south London, and after leaving school she followed her passion for fashion.
She met her late husband Ernie at school when they were both just 12 years old. They got married and had two children, Pamela and Bernie, while today Rosina has four grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and seven great-great-grandchildren.
