This 109-year-old's epic life advice just made her the internet's new queen

More porridge, less men.

JESSIE GALLAN CELEBRATED her 109th birthday on January 2 at her care home in Aberdeen.

The Scot recently gave an interview to the Daily Mail in which she revealed her secret to living so long, and basically became an icon.

My secret to a long life has been staying away from men. They’re just more trouble than they’re worth.

I also made sure that I got plenty of exercise, eat a nice warm bowl of porridge every morning, and have never gotten married.

The advice has become somewhat of a manifesto on social media.


Less men, more porridge. Life forever.

So ladies… single and have a filling breakfast every morning? KILLING IT.

A cup of tea doesn’t go amiss either, by the looks of it.
