Summer is over, which means we’re kicking off a brand new season of The Dr. Oz Show. It’s hard for me to believe that we’ve already hit the seventh season, and I’m amazed every day by the ways the show continues to impact the lives of viewers and readers like you. Excitement is running high here in our New York studios for all that we have in store for you this season. Here’s a little preview of the things I’m most excited about.
Building a Healthy Mind
We’ve spent a lot of time over the years talking on the show about how to build a healthy body. Physical wellness is essential to health and I’ve worked hard to make sure you get the most up to date information on how to keep your body in the best shape possible. But it doesn’t stop there: A healthy mind is essential to a healthy body. That’s why I want to make a big push this season to help you understand your mind’s health better and show you how to boost and maintain that health. If you’re willing to undertake this journey with me, I think you’ll be amazed at how much better you feel when you pay more attention to your mental health.
Finding the Information You Need
During my conversations this summer, I learned that people want more help understanding and navigating the barrage of health information we’re hit with every day. What’s clear to me is that the nature of how we find and understand health information is changing dramatically with the evolution of the Internet. One of my goals this season is to help you learn to navigate that changing environment so you can get the most from what the digital health movement has to offer, as we touched on in yesterday’s show.
It’s Time for You
Most of all, I’ve heard from fans that they have trouble finding time in their lives to implement the advice they see and hear about on the show. I understand how tough it can be to make time for yourself in a hectic life split among work, family, and friends. But this year I’m going to be encouraging you to take some time for you. Good health doesn’t happen by accident. It has to be consciously cultivated. If your health has been suffering because the rest of your life is coming before your wellbeing, you need to be a little selfish and plant the seeds of wellness. I recognize that’s easy to say and much harder to do, but I’m going to work hard this season to bring you the information, advice, and wisdom you need to make time for you in your life.
We have all of this and so much more in store for you this season, and I can’t wait to make the journey with you. Don’t forget to get involved on social media. Change is easier with the support of like-minded people who have similar goals, challenges, and experiences. And don’t forget, you can connect with me on Facebook and Twitter to get support from people just like you trying to lead healthier lives.
