Best First Meeting Tips (0:00:00) Meeting people for the first time can sometimes feel like you’re doing emotional gymnastics. You’re trying to balance how nice you are without trying too hard, you want to act interested in their lives without asking an awkwardly personal question, and for some reason your hands are dancing at your waist, trying to decide whether they want to be folded or not. You end up walking away from the conversation not knowing if the person likes you or is terrified of you. These first impressions can be uncomfortable if we don’t know what we’re doing. Thankfully, there are strategies we can have going into these conversations that will calm our conversational fears. Harvey Deutschendorf, an expert on emotional intelligence, joins us to give us tips on how to make an emotionally intelligent first impression. Hanger Management (0:15:27) Hungry plus angry. Hangry. It’s a real emotion! It can definitely cramp our style and make dieting, healthy eating, and skipping dessert nearly impossible. How can we stay happy when our stomachs are in a state of mutiny? Dr. Susan Albers, a clinical psychologist and author who specializes in body image and eating issues, joins us to share ways we can defeat hanger. Hygge (0:35:03) Friend of The Lisa Show Carrie Ann Rhodes shares ways we can embrace the cozy comfort of hygge. Thanksgiving Recap (0:50:37) Lisa and Richie talk about what they did to celebrate Thanksgiving. Funniest Christmas Cards (1:05:33) How many cliché Christmas cards do you get every year and how many have you sent out? All Christmas cards are nice, and we all smile when we get them from our loved ones, but so many of them seem the same. Paul Browning is a talented graphic designer who designs his family’s Christmas cards in out of the box ways that leave everyone rolling on the floor with laughter. We saw some of these cards and just had to hear more about them. Sustainable Holiday (1:22:12) The holidays are known for being a time of excess. Between the piles of baked goods, the boxes of decorations, and all the giving and receiving, we tend to continue to buy more, collect more, and use more than we do the rest of the year. Amid all of the holiday craziness, the environment may not beat the top of your priority list, but making planet-conscious choices can be easier than you think! Kate Brandt is Google’s sustainability officer. She’s here to offer tips for how we can be more eco-friendly this holiday season.
