Part of Dr. Oz's Ultimate Countdown show, fight fatigue with these 4 secret weapons.         

  1. Try D-Ribose: This low-calorie and sugar-like substance, which can be taken in pill or powder form, can give your body a boost of energy.
  2. Take a Multivitamin: A multivitamin will counter-effect the sleepy and lethargic feeling you get after eating a heavy meal. 
  3. Get a Lemon Lift: Smell a slice of lemon or rub lemon oil on your skin to awaken the senses.
  4. Loose the Snooze: Loose the Snooze. Set the alarm for the time you need to get up - and then get up! Hitting the snooze button doesn't provide you with any restorative sleep.

Will you ever feel comfortable in your own skin? That is, if you don't make an effort to protect it? Although 64% of adults do report wearing sunscreen when outside for prolonged periods of time, it turns out that only about 10% of people surveyed actually protect themselves daily, according to a recent review.

No matter what your skin tone is, unless you live in a cave with no sunlight, daily protection with either sunscreen, sunblock or protective clothing can not only protect you from developing sunburns (ouch!) but can significantly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer, particularly the deadliest type called melanoma. In addition, for those of you wanting to keep your youthful looks, daily sunscreen has been shown to reduce the development of wrinkles. A great teacher once told me that the best way to not have wrinkles is not to get them in the first place (think of how much money you can save on useless creams that claim to diminish wrinkles).
