The latest in the best-selling series by Drs. Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz offers head-to-toe advice to help us look, feel, and be beautiful. Beauty is really about your health and happiness, the authors explain. Here’s a sneak peek from You: Being Beautiful.
“For some, happiness is a bottle of wine shared with your romantic interest. For others, happiness is a silent walk on the beach in a light rain. Whatever your particular definition of happiness may be, we believe that the idea of being beautiful really comes down to two big umbrella concepts: First, love the people in your life and practice trusting and forgiving them. Second, and equally important, love yourself and all of your imperfections (many of which you’re working to correct, right?).
“Opening your world up to look beyond the cursory perceptions is what really gives you the inner strength and beauty to find happiness. Ask yourself:
“Do you have relationships that are strong and healthy and contribute to your happiness?
“Have you found ways to give to others and show gratitude for the gifts you’ve been given?
“And are you able to go beyond the superficiality that surrounds you in your day-to-day life, to explore and connect with the deeper and more meaningful purposes in life?
“Those questions really lie at the center of making ‘beauty’ a full-circle concept. The more beautiful you look and feel, the happier you are. And the happier you are, the more beautiful you look and feel and the more you can share with others your purpose in life. And that’s a beautiful thing.”
