Everyday Rockstar (0:00:00) Lisa and Richie talk to this week’s Everyday Rockstar. You could be featured on the show too! Send your nominations to thelisashow@byu.edu. Teenagers and Jobs (0:05:26) Whether you had one in high school or not, we were all told at one point in our young lives to “Get a job!” It would teach us personal responsibility, financial independence, and give us more self-confidence. But now that many of us have kids of our own and we’re all trying to figure out the best ways to raise them, we have to ask ourselves if school is more important and if it's best to pressure our teenagers to get a job in high school. Well the answer to this question is more complex than you might think. Joining us today is Debra MacDonald, the Site Director of the parenting website Center For Parenting Education , to talk with us about this high school parenting dilemma. Conflict with Passive Aggressive People (0:18:02) I’m sure we all know someone who is incredibly sneaky and passive aggressive when they’re upset. It’s infuriating! Our culture values empowerment, and sarcastic passive aggression. How can we interact with people that fit these personality labels, especially these we need to have tough conversations? With us again today is Emily Taylor, a certified mediator and founder of the Conflict Fluent website. We’ve asked her to weigh in on this topic. Real Happiness and Meditation (0:36:24) We’ve all heard about meditation and read the claims that our lives would be so much better if we did it. Whether it’s our in-laws, siblings, or friends, a lot of people are convinced that this ancient technique is the solution to all our problems. But what good can sitting on the ground breathing slowly actually do for us? Perhaps a lot more than you think. Joining us today is Sharon Salzberg, a pioneer in the field of meditation and author of several books that help people find “Real Happiness” and “Real Love” through meditation and mindfulness. Quarantine Trauma (0:50:34) We’re all feeling the effects of this pandemic, whether you’ve been quarantined, you’re trying to practice social distancing, or you know someone whose been infected. Many of us feel stressed, anxious, and frustrated. There is so much that we can’t control. So, during times like this it’s important to focus on what we can control like our health and wellness. Here to share her tips with us on how we can take better care of our minds and bodies during this corona crisis is Dr. Joyce Mikal-Flynn, nurse practitioner and trauma expert. Running and COVID-19 (1:08:35) Have you been going stir-crazy while trying to remain socially distant? I think it’s safe to say that we’re all feeling anxious to get outside and escape the confines of our own homes. Plus, it’s important to stay active for our own physical and mental health. One way to meet all of these needs is by running. But is it even safe to go out and run in the face of COVID-19? Paul Ronto is a running expert and friend of the show. We wanted to discuss this important topic with him and get his take on it. Identity Awareness (1:24:36) What makes up your identity? Is it how many likes you get on Instagram or your most recent promotion? It’s easy to let surface level factors like these influence the way we see ourselves when they really shouldn’t matter at all. But if we can base our identity on what we have to offer on the inside, then we will stop comparing ourselves to others and build more self-confidence. So, we invited Kirk Voss on the show to help us learn more about how to identify our true selves and change our perception of our self-worth for the better. Kirk is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist.
