Dr Oz: Stressed To Blessed
Dr Oz was thrilled to reveal The Blessed 30 Challenge with the help of Devon Franklin. He’s hoping to help you transform yourself from stressed to blessed in just one month. Devon explained that the challenge is all about taking accountability for our spiritual health. He’s hoping to help people realize that even when they’re struggling, they have blessings underneath their stress.
Devon brought some of the best faith leaders in the country together onto one team to help guide viewers through the 30 days of the challenge. Pastor Carl Lentz, Pastor Priscilla Shirer, and Reverend Dr Samuel Rodriguez were thrilled to join the show to thunderous applause.
Priscilla began by explaining that so much stress comes from people who think the more stressed you are, the more successful. As Shirer stated, we’re wearing down so much that we’re not taking care of our bodies.
Dr Oz: Flip Negative Into Positive
Reverend Dr Rodriguez wants people to understand that we’re not just here to take up space. We’re suppose to thrive and do so much more. Lentz also wanted people to avoid getting “overwhelmed by the overhaul” because people often think they just have too much to change. That’s one of the reasons why this plan is so great: it allows you to change and improve your life a little at a time.
The first part of the challenge is to eliminate complaining and negative thoughts. Even more than that, replace those negative thoughts with positive ones. Find the light in the dark. If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.
Additionally, each week you’re going to remove one stressful thing from your life and replace it with a blessed one. In the first week, begin keeping a gratitude list. Write down everything you’re grateful for. Even on social media, instead of complaining, write something positive! Share something about your day that went right or that made you happy.
The next part of the challenge is to detox your environment. You want to address things in your spiritual environment as well as your physical environment. You don’t want to tolerate anything that isn’t conducive to your overall well-being. If there are things or people that are toxic in your life, get rid of them!
Dr Oz: Less Technology, More Kindness
During the third week, you want to replace 30 minutes of tech time with an act of kindness. Lentz suggested you take time each night before bed to write down things you’re thankful for, people you love, and things you’re going to do the next day to guarantee a better, happier life. Over time, you can create a life of kindness instead of just an act.
You also want to remove “kryptonite food.” Junk food or processed food doesn’t help you in the grand scheme of things. You end up paying for your lack of discipline when it comes to your diet.
Finally, and most importantly, you want to stop holding grudges and forgive. Forgiveness is for us, not for the person and it allows you to be free. “Even the pebble in your shoe affects how you walk every minute of every day,” Devon Franklin said.
