Avoiding a Midlife Crisis (0:00:00) There are two words that strike fear into the hearts of nearly every adult: midlife crisis. During this time of our lives, it’s common for negative thoughts to cloud our memory. We begin to think: what have I really done with my life? Am I told old todo the things I love anymore? It’s perfectly natural to worry about the future, but you don’t have to go through a crisis according to our next guest Dr. Robi Ludwig. Dr. Ludwig is a nationally renowned psychotherapist who has helped many adults through their life crises. She’s here to talk about how we can feel good about ourselves no matter how old we are. Overtone Singing (0:16:01) What do the Tuvan people of rural Russia, the Inuit people of Canada and Alaska, and the Bantu people of South Africa have in common? It’s not what you might expect! It’s a style of singing called overtone singing. With us today to explain the history of this fascinating sound is Jim Cole, an overtone singer and the founder of Spectral Voices. Cyber Security while Traveling (0:32:25) Studies show that in the year 2019, $2 trillion worth of damages were lost in cybercrimes. Two trillion dollars. I don’t know about you, but hearing this makes me feel both nervous and vulnerable. While we may know basic cyber security protocol, how much do we know about our cyber safety while away from home? Here with us today is Matthew Bradley, a 14-year member of the CIA and current Regional Security Director for International SOS, to share how we can maintain our cybersecurity while traveling. Thrifting (0:50:39) Lisa and Richie chat about their experiences going thrift shopping when they were younger. Saying No as a People Pleaser (1:05:04) To some extent, I think we all struggle with wanting to please other people. We want to be nice and helpful, but we also want to be liked. In fact, belonging and being loved are innate desires that we all have... so in order to fit in, we say yes. Yes to party invites, yes to being a PTA parent, or yes to taking on extra projects at work. But when we’re always saying yes in the hopes that others will like us or to avoid confrontation, we end up neglecting our own needs. Joining us on the show today to teach us how to say no and stop people pleasing is Dr. Bradley Nelson, one of the world’s foremost experts on natural methods of achieving wellness. Washing Sheets (1:23:13) We spend a third of our lives in our bedding, leaving behind 56 hours a week of sweat, body oil and dead skin cells. Keeping our sheets clean and maintained will only help us sleep better and stay healthy. But what’s the best way to do this? We’re going to talk with Kait Schulhof about how we can best keep our bedding clean and santitary. Kait is a cleaning expert and founder of the blog “A clean Bee”.
