Betty has previously shared her tips for living such a long and prosperous life. While she’s previously confessed to still indulging in hot dogs and vodka, she’s cited a positive attitude as the most important. “I know it sounds corny, but I try to see the funny side and the upside, not the downside,” she said to Parade magazine in 2017, ahead of turning 96. “I get bored with people who complain about this or that. It’s such a waste of time…Accentuate the positive, not the negative,” she encouraged.
