When it comes to living a full, healthy lifestyle; here's a hint at exactly what Oprah means about a life well-lived.
The TV mogul told People Magazine in an interview that after launching her TV network in 2011, OWN, she felt that she was in the middle of a mental health crisis.
Winfrey went through a very stressful time. While she was recording voice-overs for a television project, Winfrey says she had a moment where she knew it was time to take a step back and take care of herself. “I remember closing my eyes while I was reading,” she says. “I thought, ‘I cannot have another thing enter my brain.’ I needed to pull back.”
Oprah Winfrey: Living Her Best Life
Winfrey was partially stressed because of the low ratings on OWN and the constant pressure to compete. The network wasn’t doing as well as she would have liked. “After 25 years of being No. 1, I had become accustomed to success,” she told “People” magazine. “I didn’t expect failure. I was tested and I had to dig deep.”
Winfrey says, there are five ingredients that make up the recipe for a well-lived life. “What I know for sure: Clarity, passion, commitment, reverence, and balance define a life well-lived,” Winfrey said in the January 2020 issue of “O, The Oprah Magazine.” She also believes renewing your mind and refreshing yourself are essential to living your best life. Winfrey says there is a Bible verse (Romans 12: 2) that reminds her to continually renew her mind. “And do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
Oprah Celebrates 2020 With a Tour
Winfrey will be hosting a wellness tour in 2020 titled “2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus.” From January 4 through March 7, she told her readers she plans to travel the country, “preaching the gospel of health and wellness.” The media mogul plans to invite an impressive group of celebrities to participate in the tour. Among her celebrity guests are Lady Gaga, Tina Fey, Julianne Hough, Duane “The Rock” Johnson, Gayle King, and Michelle Obama.
If you’re feeling stuck in life, this might be the conference for you. Winfrey told her readers the purpose of the tour is to help people renew their minds, bodies, and spirits. “My dream is that the tour will serve as inspiration and motivation to take control and focus on what matters most to you. To get clear. To operate from intention. To take action. To move forward.”
