Parenting Our Future

As a mom of two teen boys who both have anxiety, I know how hard it can be to navigate and help them without becoming anxious about it myself!  If you have a child with anxiety, first know there is hope!   In this episode, psychologist, Melanie McNally and I talk about why kids are more anxious than we seemed to be at their age.  We know social media plays a part but we have so much more access to news, 24/7 In this episode, Dr. Melanie and I talk about how can parents tell if their child's anxiety is normal, everyday stress or if its harmful anxiety that's holding them back....

As if it isn’t hard enough to enter adolescence with hormones, growth spurts, hair in new places and ACNE!  The first question my guest, Dr. Yug Varma, was WHY!?  Why does it happen and why does it coincide with adolescence? Dr. Varma has over 10 years of microbiome research experience and has uncovered a bacteriophage (a type of virus that infects bacteria - literally a bacteria eater) that’s found on clear skin but is absent on acne-infected skin.  His product Phyla, introduces the bacteriophage, to acne prone skin to eliminate it.  I thought it was important to...

Parenting Our Future

Sleep is the most underrated aspect of wellness. As parents, especially moms, we lose so much sleep in pregnancy, when the babies are born and for many years as our kids grow up. It seems “easy” to forget our needs for sleep and just run on empty because you are so needed and valuable to everyone in your life. Here’s the thing, when you aren’t rested, you aren’t thriving. You DESERVE to live a life filled with joy, fun and connection….and getting enough sleep is KEY to having a great life.  In this episode, I’m talking to someone I think the world of, my friend and expert...

Parenting Our Future

Fine…The other F-word!  The other four-letter word and this one is keeping us from being happier, calmer and more connected to the people in our lives.  When I say “I’m fine” I don’t mean fine at ALL! I just don’t want to say I’m not great, or talk about why I’m not great in that moment.   I see “fine” as a bandaid word! It often covers up what’s really going on.  When my husband asks me how I’m doing, and I reply with “fine” I expect him to ask me more (oh those unspoken expectations that get us into trouble!!). Lori Saitz, is an expert in...

Even in today’s day and age, workplaces are still dominated by a culture that favors men as business leaders but research is finding how working moms are best equipped to bring 21st century leadership skills into the workplace. I’m passionate about supporting parents, especially moms in the workplace, see their value and embrace the skills they have that make them such effective leaders. My guest, Jen Murtagh, feels the same way. So much so that she built her company Maturn, to support mothers transitioning in and out of maternity leave. According to research done by Bright Horizons,...
