By on March 6, 2014

The world’s oldest birthday girl is 116 years old.  Misao Okawa turned 116 on March 5 and is Guinness World Record breaker for 2014.   Born on March 5, 1898 in Osaka, she says, “I owe my long healthy life to eating sushi and sleeping at least eight hours at night.”

Misao eats a full three big meals a day.  Her advice: “Eat and sleep and you will live a long time. You have to learn to relax.”

She currently lives at a retirement home.
