In interviews and blog posts, Mizutani has been generous enough to share the secrets to slowing down her aging process which she relates to having a healthy body.
She says she maintains her looks by following a very strict vegetarian diet and avoiding tobacco and alcohol.
She also keeps herself away from too much sunlight and sets aside around 5 hours per day for pampering her skin and body.
As a form of mental exercise, Mizutani also enjoys video games for about 30 minutes per day. 
She says playing games like Pacman keeps the mind active by improving creativity, decision-making, and perception.
