(0:00:00) Skin Fasting We all have skin care routines to help us get the skin we want. It can be as simple as moisturizing every night, to spending hours every morning prepping your skin with a variety of products. But have you ever considered throwing away all of those treatments and just letting your skin breathe for a minute? Heidi Prather, a certified dermatologist discusses this trend and what the benefits are.  (0:16:16) Annual Home Maintenance Checklist For many home owners, property maintenance happens only when something goes awry. But instead of waiting for something to break before deciding to invest in repairs, why not create and keep a home-maintenance checklist? Ronda Kaysen, a Sunday Real Estate columnist from the New York Times, outlines a checklist to preserve your home's value.  (0:34:43) The Art of Downsizing Moving at any point in time is tiring and frustrating. Downsizing, however, takes on a whole new set of difficulties as you are forced to scale down. Karen Shinn, owner and founder of Downsizing Diva, shares the benefits of downsizing as well as how to make the transition as efficient and painless as possible.  (0:52:49) Drama Therapy We love to talk about the importance of therapy on our show-- we want everyone who needs help or positivity in their lives to be able to find that! But we know that for some people, lying on a couch and sharing their feelings with a stranger might not be the right fit. Luckily, there are tons of other options out there, like drama therapy. Dr. Robert Landy, drama therapist, tells us all about it.  (1:08:55) Mini Book Club Rachel Wadham, of BYU Radio's Worlds Awaiting, discusses the way in which authors use music to inspire their writing.  (1:20:42) Making Your Kid a Millionaire  "Stocks"-- that magical, yet maddening word that promises the potential to solve all our money problems, but also leaves us tearing our hair out due to its confusing nature. Investing can be tricky at any age, yet many of us hope that if we start teaching our kids about investment practices while they're young, they'll be more likely to have financial success. Steve Siebold, author of "Secrets Self-Made Millionaires Teach Their Kids," shares investment education strategies.  (1:34:23) Fighting In-Home Teen Drug Abuse Understanding the warning signs of drug use and/or misuse can be an invaluable asset as a parent or caregiver. Joe Abdallah, former drug enforcement officer and executive director of Code 3, a non-profit addressing the drug epidemic, gives educational resources and warning signs of drug use within the home.
