Caring for Caregivers (0:00:00) Do you have aging parents? Relatives with debilitating mental health issues? Disabled loved ones? Then you know the challenges that accompany caregiving. Studies show that 40%of caregivers report high psychological, emotional, physical, and financial stress. Giving your time, effort, emotion, and money to care for another human being-who may even be the one who is supposed to be caring for you-is taxing on the mind and body. But how can we properly care for others if we ourselves are overwhelmed? Dr. Santo Marabella, author of “The Lessons of Caring: Inspiration & Support for the Caregiver,” joins us to discuss how we can take care of ourselves and feel less stressed under the responsibility of caregiving. Music Therapy (0:19:31) Everyone’s had a bad day, when you just have to listen to the saddest song you can find and wallow in your emotions. Or you’ve listened to a song that pumps you up, or maybe makes you angry. Music can affect your mood, your emotions, and even your brain, and music therapists use it to help patients in lots of different ways. Dr. Kimberly Sena Moore, PhD, is a music therapist, and she joins us today to share what music therapy really is, and how it can help us. Talking Your Way into More Money (0:35:02) Everyone wants to be making more money. Sometimes we aren’t sure how to—but sometimes, it’s easier than it sounds: all it takes is opening your mouth to ask. Whether you're asking for a raise or negotiating lower bills, today we’ll share how opening your mouth can save you money. Tori Dunlap is a millennial money and career expert and founder of Her First 100K. She joins us today to share her tips for talking your way to more money. Floral Arranging (0:52:49) There’s just something about a beautiful arrangement of flowers that makes everything in your house feel brighter and happier but buying a new arrangement every time the old one withers away makes your wallet feel lighter and sadder. We’ve all seen the flowers in the grocery store, and while beautiful, they are nothing like the arrangements the pros do. So how can we take those flowers from the store and make them into something as fabulous as the arrangements from the flower shop? Miriam Housley, owner of Foxglove Flowers and Gifts, joins us today to share her best tips for those of us at home that wish we could make floral arrangements of our own. Media for Social Change (1:05:37) Have you ever heard of the Tulsa Race Massacre? Neither had a lot of people, including many residents of Tulsa. But after the new HBO series “The Watchmen” included it as a central part of one of its episodes, Oklahoma public schools will be including it in its history curriculum as of next fall. Is this a coincidence or an example of the power pop culture has to enact social change? Here to share their thoughts on the subject are our friends and media experts Karen and Lee Shackelford. Best Headphones (1:24:08) The popular choice of headphones these days are the wireless ones. With these, you don’t have to be constantly frustrated with your headphone cords always getting tangled in your pocket. But, wireless isn’t the only option. With so many new brands and styles on the market, where should you start? Wireless? Over-the-ear? Noise-cancelling? To help us choose we’ve invited Lauren Dragan, an audio writer for wirecutter.com, to share her headphone recommendations and tips for picking your perfect pair.
