Confidence and Clothing (0:00:00) You can feel the difference between the days when you roll out of bed and throw on an old, stained sweater you hope no one sees versus the days you wake up early, actually pick out an outfit, and strut that brand new shirt. For some mysterious reason it makes you feel more like getting out of your cubicle and saying hi to people! Your wardrobe can actually have a huge effect on your confidence, and it could be one of the factors of helping you find a lasting relationship. Confidence is an attractive quality and if the proper wardrobe can help with that, we are all ears. We have Kimberly Seltzer, an image expert, dating coach and matchmaker, with us to help us unveil our most beautiful selves. How to Make Love Last (0:16:56) Being in a long-term, committed relationship like marriage requires a lot more work than some might think. Just because you’ve decided to spend the rest of time together, it doesn’t mean things will be easy from here on out. Relationships, regardless of their status, require attention and constant work to keep love alive. But amidst all of our grown-up responsibilities, how can we still find time to date our spouses if we’ve already won each other’s hearts? Alisa Goodwin Snell, a dating and relationship coach, joins us to share how people in committed relationships can stay in love for the rest of their lives. Theatre’s Role in Culture (0:34:13) From 500 BC to 2019, actors have taken the stage to tell stories of the human experience in the entertaining and inspiring art form of theatre. But in what ways has it changed over the centuries? What are the ins and out of theatre today? Tony Gunn, theatre professor, director and actor, joins us to give insight into the theatre trends of today, as well as tips on how to find the best shows near you. Bibliotherapy (0:50:34) I think everyone needs therapy at some point in their lives, and therapeutic experiences can come to us in many different shapes and forms. Today, we’re talking about a type of therapy that’s a little out of the box. Instead of laying on a couch and spilling your feelings to a doctor, can you gain therapy and healing from laying on a couch with your favorite book? Here to tell us more about the practice of bibliotherapy is Nancy Knapp professor and co-author of The Psychology of Reading: Theory and Applications. Being Programmed for Unhappiness (1:05:11) Study after study tells us that being happy is good for us. Yet,?according to the World Happiness Report, America is the least happy it’s ever been. If being happy is so good for us, why are we having such a hard time becoming happy? “We’re actually born happy, unfortunately that natural joy has been blocked by the programming received over the years,” says?Desmond?Towey, teacher and speaker at the DeMello Center. “You can’t acquire it,” he adds. “Instead you have to delete your programming.” We’ve invited him onto the show to explain how we can do that. Weekend Review (1:22:06) Lisa and Richie tell us about activities happening across the country and the movies coming out this weekend. Treasure Island 2020 (1:32:00) Sam Payne, host of the Apple Seed, gives us a preview of BYU Radio’s Treasure Island 2020.
