Willie Nelson Shares Secret To Staying Youthful


With age comes wisdom, and Willie Nelson is a spry 87-year-old.

The expert age-eraser recently dropped in with Cody Alan to share his best advice when it comes to staying youthful. 

"You gotta stay healthy physically, first or you die, you know?" says the "On The Road Again" entertainer. "You stay healthy, physically, mentally, spiritually."

"Think positive. A negative thought will release poison in your bloodstream and give you cancer and kill your ass. So, you know, be careful and think positive thoughts all of the time, and don't let all of the negativity around you bring your down," says Willie.

As it turns out, Willie might not be far from the truth. A 2019 study found that positive thinking can result in an 11–15% longer lifespan and a stronger likelihood of living to age 85 or older.

There is also the added benefit of "Willie's Remedy," which the singer heavily endorses.
