Helping with Hoarding (0:00:00) Everyone likes to hold onto mementos that remind us of the past, but at what point does the habit of holding on to stuff become unhealthy? Some people just refer to this as hoarding, but hoarding is more than just an attachment to your belongings -it's a mental health issue that needs to be taken seriously. Despite the fact that hoarding disorder affects 19 million people in the US, few actually know how to identify it and how to help those who are affected by the disorder. Here with us today to better understand hoarding disorder and how to help those who suffer from it is Dr. Michael A. Tompkins, a renowned psychologist and author. Healthy Fall Treats (0:35:48) Having made it to October, we can all very well predict the first things we’ll smell as soon as we step foot into the grocery store. Cinnamon, pumpkin, nutmeg. Display tables of cookies, cakes and donuts. And of course, the mountains of candy all on sale. Now, isn't this why we love fall? These seasonal treats are what make this time of year so delightful! As much as we love and look forward to enjoying our favorite fall treats, keeping our health, and our family’s, in mind is important. So, what’s the balance? Is there a way to enjoy the seasonal desserts while staying healthy? Laura Fuentes, creator of MOMables, is here to tell us. The Future of Theater (1:09:40) Like many other industries, the theater has had to learn to adapt to the rapid changes caused by COVID. The old world where in-person performances was how you watched theater seems to be fading away as the digital age of COVID takes over. This begs the question, what does the future hold for theater? Here with us today to answer that question is a professor from Arizona State University’s theater program, Guillermo Reyes. Uncover Your Happy (1:28:32) Don Goewey, Executive Director of the DeMello Center, believes that happiness isn't something you seek, but rather, something you uncover. He says, "we're born happy. It's inside of us. Over time, conditioning--or programming--that we've received from family, friends, media, has buried it under layers of societal expectations." He's on the show today to help us understand how we can uncover our happy.
