3:00 amDr. Wayne Dyer: Excuses Begone! Dr. Wayne Dyer presents a new program, based on his newest book, Excuses Begone! His goal is simple, but not easy: to help viewers learn how to overcome lifetime thinking habits that keep us from maximizing our human potential. This special addresses the powerfully transformative process of how to change habituated ways of thinking that limit our beliefs in who we can be in the world and what we can achieve. Through Dr. Dyer's process of identifying excuses which are self-defeating, he also teaches that we can choose our way of thinking. And, just because something has "always seemed to be the way it is" for most of us, there is a wealth of research that now points to a human being's ability to change these habits - which really translate into our excuses - and move into new realms of possibility. duration 2:57:53 STEREO TVG
6:00 amBrain Fitness Program If you are 50 years old today, you'll probably live into your mid-80s. If you live into your mid-80s, there's a more than even probability that your brain will decline in function before you die. At age 85, there's almost an even-money chance that you'll be identified as senile which will dramatically impair your ability to live alone, your ability to make your own decisions and live a full and interesting life until the day you die.
The problem is more than just lapses in memory. There are three root causes of problems in the aging brain: (1) an increasing signal-to-noise problem in processing information collected by our senses, (2) a decline in the production of key brain chemicals and (3) a slowing in processing speed. These problems make it increasingly difficult to accurately receive, store, retrieve and manipulate information received from any of the 5 senses.
The good news is that we can change this! It is not inevitable that we will be in a state of dementia at the time of our death. We know that we need physical exercise to maintain our physical strength throughout our lives, our brain also needs to be exercised in order to retain our mental acuity throughout whatever our lifespan. Over 50 neuroscientists have worked to create a system for strengthening the brain and making it perform with more agility, speed and comprehension. Host: Dr. Michael Merzenich. duration 1:29:13 STEREO
7:30 amYOU: Steps for Extending Your Warranty with Dr. Michael Roizen Wouldn't you like to know how to prevent your body from aging badly? No one explains the mechanics of the body better than Dr. Michael Roizen. Most of us believe that with age comes a slow and steady decline of our minds, our eyes, our hearing, our joints, our arteries, our libido and our overall quality of life. Aging is inevitable, however the rate at which we age is not. If you are in reasonable health today you have a reasonable chance of living to 100 with the same vitality you have or had at age 45. Dr. Michael Roizen provides an easy action plan to combat life's 'major agers,' those internal and external forces that cause the most wear and tear on your body. < br />Family genes are blamed for just about everything from stress, to illness, to the size of our waistlines. It's true, you can't change your genes, but you can control whether certain genes are turned on or off. Recent studies show that your body has the ability to repair any organ in the body. With the help of a male and female specimen from The Bodies Exhibition, Dr. Michael Roizen visually identifies and explains the body's organs, arteries and nerves affecting the aging process, and gives tips on how to increase your memory bank and decrease your risk of Alzheimer's disease.
