What Oprah Knows for Sure About Healthy Living
I come from a family of folks with high blood pressure and diabetes. And it takes diligence to manage a genetic propensity for illness. Eating more mindfully, exercising aerobically for at least an hour a day, stretching regularly and even doing yoga (with the help of an app: Yoga Studio, by Gaiam)—all of this has helped me transform my health.
Most important, I feel vibrant and charged up for all the great ventures and adventures I know are coming. Every day offers a new chance to embrace the wonder of being alive. And believe me, I do. I pay attention to the tiniest things. A leaf budding. Squirrels chasing each other up a tree. Another spring, new life. Nature changes herself yet again.
We can change ourselves, too—blossoming into better habits.
Today I stand fitter and stronger than I've been in years. I like the way I feel. And I want you to feel the same.
Together, we rise!
