Avian Rescue Corps (0:00:00) Cats and dogs are obviously the top choices when people decide they want to adopt a pet. But surprisingly, birds are popular too with around 20.7 million birds owned as pets in the United States. Unfortunately, a large number of these birds are either abused or have been lost from their homes. This inspired the creation of the non-profit Avian Rescue Corporation which provides care and rehabilitation for escaped and abused birds until they can find a family to adopt them. So, we invited the president of the organization, Ron Howard, on the show to discuss service opportunities with Avain Rescue Corporation and caring for our birds. The Effects of Bullying on Kids (0:17:36) According to a recent study from Yale Medicine’s Child Study Center estimates that as many as one in four children in the United States is bullied every year. The long-term results of bullying turn this from something you have cheery middle school assemblies about into a public health crisis. With us today is Dr. Gail Saltz, a professor of psychiatry and psychoanalyst at eh New York Psychoanalytic Institute. Celebrity Relationships (0:33:55) Many people like to project their lives onto the experiences of famous people and public figures. We hold these people to a high standard because we expect them to behave a certain way, and often we forget that these are real people. This topic is relevant today in regards to the recent announcement made by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to become financially independent from the royal family and splitting their time between Great Britain and the U.S. while still remaining loyal to their duties. The public has been buzzing with analyses and different opinions, but our friend Adelia Moore, a couples therapist, has been looking at their relationship experience as a sort of lens for all of us to learn from. She is here with us today to discuss more about her research. Automatic Habits (0:50:35) It’s no secret that making and keeping good habits makes life easier. And if we can do the little things every day... like making our beds, going to the gym, journaling... then we can really make big changes in our lives. But the tricky part is, of course, turning these simple tasks into habits. It’s especially hard when we are busy caring for our kids, going to work and trying to navigate the chaos that is life. So here to share her tips with us about how we can create and stick to good habits is life coach Melissa Wolak. Paying it Forward After the Holidays (1:07:09) A month ago we were in the middle of the holidays –a season full of service. A lot of us may feel like we’re in a service slump in January. Especially if we received a lot of service during the holiday season, we might have the desire to pay it forward. So how can we get out of a service slump and pay it forward now? Jan and Tim Blackburn are Just Serve specialists. They join us today to share some ideas on how we can serve throughout the entire year. Vacation Deprivation (1:33:57) Happy “National Plan for Vacation Day”. That’s right,there’s a day designated for planning your vacation time. But many of us aren’t putting this day to good use. In fact, most American workers are failing to plan vacations at all. They left 768 million unused vacation days on the table in 2018, up 9% from 2017. Joining us to talk about why employees should plan and use their hard-earned vacation time and the benefits of doing is president and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association Roger Dow. Show More...
