Virtual Family Adventures (0:00:00) The Louvre. Yellowstone National Park. A Broadway musical. You can do it all and for free from the comfort of your own home. Due to the closure of national parks, museums, libraries, and most other public venues, organizations are working overtime to bring you virtual tours, activities, and entertainment. There are now thousands of adventures available at your fingertips while you’re in self-quarantine. Here to help us explore all of our options is Angela Halliday, adventurer, service volunteer, and stay-at-home mother of five. Lisa and Richie also talk with Jackie Wallace, the senior director of public relations at the Houston Zoo, about what they’re doing to allow people to enjoy their animals from home. Handwashing (0:20:16) These days it feels impossible to even go from the kitchen to the living room without being reminded to wash our hands. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have said that the number one way to reduce the spread of the coronavirus is to wash our hands. But how do we do it right? And does hand sanitizer actually help? Here to help us get answers is Dr. David Berendez of the CDC. Spring Fever (0:34:48) It is officially spring. Did you feel the change in seasons? This feeling of change is often described as “Spring Fever.” For many, this term describes the excitement we feel as we anticipate all the things that make up spring: more sunshine, flowers blooming and baby forest animals. But it’s not just a made-up idea. It’s based on environmental and biological factors that make us feel an actual shift this time of year. Joining us to discuss the science behind “Spring Fever” is Dr. Dan Oren of Yale University who has studied how light affects our mood and energy. Home Gym (0:50:35) I’ve always been jealous of people that have amazing at-home-gyms. But I have to be honest... Even if I did have a great home gym, I would probably still struggle to find the motivation to work out. Now that working out at home is everyone’s only option, I think the real obstacle is getting yourself out of bed and on that treadmill. So, what can we do to motivate ourselves to get that blood pumping? Here to share with us his tips is Tim Kessler, fitness expert and co-founder of GymPerson.com. You can find Tim's recommendations for our listeners here. Mini Book Club: Best Book Series (1:12:17) Rachel Wadham , of BYU Radio’s Worlds Awaiting , talks with Lisa and Richie about the best book series that we should check out. Coping with Toxic People (1:25:05) We can experience toxic relationships in our families, in the workplace, and among friend groups. They can be really stressful if the toxicity is not effectively managed. While they can’t always be avoided, toxic relationships can be managed with healthy boundaries, self-care, and awareness. We’re going to talk with Kirk Voss about how we can cope with toxic relationships effectively. Kirk is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist.
