Important conversations and encouraging words to help you make every day a great one. Social Identity (00:00) In a world dominated by social media, we are turning to our not-so-secret alter egos online more and more, presenting a polished and sculpted version of ourselves to the world. What we put online may look like us, but it often isn’t quite an accurate representation of the real thing. In response to this, many are pushing for “authenticity” in social media use. But the question is, is it even possible to be truly “authentic” on a social media platform? To find out, we’ve invited the sociologist Dr. Anna Akbari to join us. Dr. Akbari is an accomplished sociologist, writer, public speaker, and she is the author of Startup Your Life: Hustle and Hack Your Way to Happiness. You can learn more about her on her website. Setting the Stage for the Holidays and Moving Time (16:15) Carrie Ann Rhodes joins Lisa to talk about the best ways to prepare for the holidays, and what to do when it’s time to move houses. Tai Chi and Stress (50:30) In the chaos of life, we’re all stressed sometimes. For centuries, the ancient Chinese art of Tai Chi has been used to increase well-being, and today experts are saying that it can help with stress too. We’re joined in the studio by Lazlo Van Wilson, a local martial artist, Tai Chi expert, and instructor. Anxiety in College Students (1:06:15) Research says that 3 in 5 college students have felt “overwhelming anxiety” within the last year. While it used to hardly be recognized as a serious issue, anxiety is now a widespread epidemic, and it looks like college students might be the most at risk. Dr. Jared Warren is a psychology professor at Brigham Young University, and he joins us to talk about this more. Family Movie Night (1:24:22) Yesterday was Veteran’s Day here in the United States and it also marked the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War One – the war that was to be the end of all wars. Rod Gustafson, our family film expert, is here to share some viewing choices that will help parents to begin a conversation with their kids about the role of the military in protecting our freedoms.
