Dr Oz: Drink Your Way To Better Skin
You can literally “sip your way to better skin” by using the right ingredients, and Dr Oz had just the menu for you to follow. Joining him was dermatologist Dr Dendy Engelman, who said we should focus on the inside out. You are both what you eat and what you drink! The “Better Skin Drink Menu” was tested for a few days by women who were thrilled with their results.
So what’s on the menu? First, you should start your day with a soy latte and green juice. With lunch, drink two cups of green tea, which has been known to be full of anti-aging benefits. In the evening, have a glass of cranberry juice to undo toxic effects you were exposed to throughout the day. Before bed, drink blueberry-infused water. You should also drink eight glasses of water each day on top of the drinks on the menu.
Dr Oz: Are You Apologizing Too Much?
Many of us feel the need to apologize constantly, even when there’s really nothing to be sorry for. Dr Oz wanted to take on the five-letter word that could actually be hurting yourself. Erica is a woman who literally apologizes for everything. She constantly worries about things she’s doing wrong and said she’s ready to “stop apologizing her life away.”
Erica expressed to Dr Oz that sometimes it’s easier to be sorry because she doesn’t want to be a hassle to anyone. Dr Oz took a look at how many times Erica said sorry just in the time she was being interviewed. She said it 24 times, which is obviously a lot. Erica acknowledged that she wasn’t sleeping and would feel bad for apologizing, turning to unhealthy food.
Saying sorry that much can be exhausting, causing people to make even worse decisions. We’re too pressured to appear perfect and Dr Oz said it’s a lot more than just wanting to please people. He thinks that people who say sorry all the time, “feel like they’re taking up too much space.” Erica said that certainly resonated with her.
Dr Oz: Stop Over-Apologizing
Dr Oz welcomed Blanca Cobb, a body language expert. Blanca said Erica’s body language comes across in different ways, and in particular, Erica was giving off cues that she wasn’t confident. According to Blanca “our words become our experiences.” Dr Oz was excited to reveal three new words you can replace “sorry” with.
Blanca explained that girls are taught to be nice and polite and one way to do that, is to say “sorry.”
Dr Oz: What To Say Instead Of “Sorry”
Blanca and Dr Oz revealed the acronym SORRY, beginning with “save your sorry’s.” Realize what you’re apologizing for and make sure either you’re offering condolences or you’re trying to right a wrong. “O” stand for owning your decisions, because no one should have a say in your legal, positive decisions. “R” is recognize when not to be sorry, because your first response should be no response at all, until you realize whether an apology is required. The second “R” is replacing sorry with three different words.
Over the next week, try using “please,” “excuse me,” and finally, try “thank you.” Lastly for the “Y” remember you are entitled to your feelings.
Dr Oz: Talking To Your Kids About Tragedies
Before the end of the show, Dr Oz confronted the tragedy in San Bernadino. How can you help your children come to terms with these unthinkable acts? Dr Oz suggested you show strength and stay calm because kids take their cues from you. Also, try to understand how your children perceive a situation and how it pertains to their own lives. Your kids will jump to worst case scenarios, so it’s important to offer reassurance. It’s most important to avoid impossible promises like improving world peace. You should answer questions as honestly as possible, but avoid gruesome details.
Mr. Rogers was quoted saying “Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. In our times of stress, the best things we can do for each other is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers.”
