YOU: Being Beautiful

We have picked up a new book this week called "YOU: Being Beautiful. The Owner's Manual to Inner and Outer Beauty" by Michael F. Roizen &  Mehmet C. Oz. (Dr. Oz)  We haven't gotten very far into it due to 4th of July festivities but so far it is a winner. The book is divided into 3 parts: Part I Looking Beautiful, Part II Feeling Beautiful, And Part III Being Beautiful. So as vain as this book sounds it actually isn't. Part I consists of how to take care of your self; skin, hair, teeth, and body, more like the scientific terms and reasons why hair is shiny or why you have dry skin and how to fix or maintain your specific situation. 

Part II "Feeling Beautiful" Well exactly that! how to feel beautiful. This section talks about the golden rule " If you feel good, you will look good". this section is very useful because it talks about simple diets, how to take care of certain aches and pains, how to obtain peace of mind and positive energy, and tuning within to self search and be who we truly want to be.

Finally Part III. Plainly being beautiful is generating positive energy that can only be achieved by the previous parts: Part I & Part II. 

What we really like about this book is that it gives you a YOU-Q ( Your "YOU I-Q") it basically asks you some questions in which you answer at the beginning of the book and once again after you are done reading the book. This quiz is made to give you a new perspective of on yourself and how exactly it is that you see your self. First it asks you about your physical appearance, then about how truly happy you are,  and finally you have to find words that describe you now and words that you would like to be described by. All these questions have a score and once all scores are added you get your YOU-Q which tells you how much work you really need to do to be content with yourself. 

As we progress on our reading we will keep you updated on certain tricks and facts given by the book. So far we have read that using a tennis ball to give back massages is very beneficial for both the massaged and the masseuse.
