    Health and Fitness

    Health and fitness are things many of us may take for granted at times but as host Dana Michelle says to open the show, "there's nothing like a pandemic to remind us  all to prioritize our health."  Dana has jumpstarted her own journey to a healthier, more fit lifestyle by joining the UFC Gym in Naperville.  In this episode, she meets with owners of the gym Ricard Lamas and Matt Kuschert to talk about how their experience with mixed martial arts (MMA) lead them to open the local facility.

    "Me being a fighter, I can't fight til I'm 65 , though I'd like to if I could.  Father time just won't allow that to happen," says Lamas.  "The next step is using the brand recognition that I've created and the sport of MMA and transfer that into a business that can help sustain my family and Matt's family from here on out."

    Finding Common Ground During the Holidays

    Finding Common Ground During the Holidays

    Finding common ground during the holidays is more important than ever. Because the holidays arrive after a contentious election, and schools debating their status during the pandemic, and COVID-19 positivity rates on the rise, people are even more on edge. On this episode, Rebecca and Dana discuss the best way to navigate the holidays while maintaining your mental health.

    Therapist Lisa Pishas suggests, “Maybe this is the year where we can think about ‘good enough.’ Maybe we don’t look at Pinterest this year to make the perfect craft or meal. Maybe we stay away from things like that… “

    Because both in-person and virtual gatherings can be stressful, Dilara Sayeed suggests stepping back. “My sister and I are planning a family event,” said Sayeed. “And started with stopping for a moment and not starting the planning. Let’s start with what do we feel comfortable with? We haven’t seen one another for a while. We don’t even know what’s typical in our lives right now. What do we feel comfortable with?”

    Open Our Ears And Listen
    Can we find common ground during the holidays in our own homes? And can we ever find common ground when discussing the state of our community? And when it comes to politics–on the local level or the national level–is it better to simply step away in an act of self-preservation? Or do we confront our worries and stand strong in our beliefs? Reverend Mark Winters thinks we may be going into these situations with the wrong idea:

    ‘The purpose of dialogue is not agreement. It’s understanding,” says Winters. “What I see happen is folks get dug on a particular issue and their mouth opens and their ears close, and we need to do the opposite. We need to open our ears and listen for understanding we may not always agree with each other on something. That’s OK.”
