Kane Tanaka is 118 Years Old And Currently The Oldest Person in The World. What Are Her Secrets?


Born on 2 January 1903 Kane Tanaka is recognised by Guinness World Records as the oldest living person in the world. 

In this article, I am not going to focus much on her personal life but rather reveal to you her secrets towards attaining this age and here are some of them.

1) Positive attitude. 

Even after loosing her husband, Tanaka has always been positive about life. She has twice survived cancer, cataracts operations and has lived through two global pandemics ie ( The Spanish flu and the Covid 19 pandemic) but in all these difficult situations she has always been very decisive and has conquered them all.

2) Playing and Studying

According to Tanaka's family, they disclosed that she enjoys playing a strategic board game known as "othello" and that staying curious and doing maths are the secrets behind Tanaka's long life. That seems true because according to some scientific findings, studying increases a persons life expectancy and health in general.

3) Singing. 

Famed locally for her beautiful singing voice, even on her old age, Tanaka offered to serenade well-wishers who had gathered to celebrate her birthday. Even if you don't have the voice of an angel, singing has long been associated with a longer and healthier life.

4) Faith in God.

According to the last bit of the following screenshot on Tanaka's life history, she attributes her longevity to her faith in God who is the sole creator of the whole universe and the giver of life.


Truly Tanaka is so blessed and we pray that God may grant her good health and fulfill her desires. Additionally, we should mimic her positive traits of trusting in God, singing, playing and having a positive attitude towards life.
