    Straight Talk on HRT and the Science Behind the Latest Menopause Headlines with Dr. Jessica Shepherd

    Get a straight-talk, science-backed look behind the latest buzzy menopause headlines on a new study that finds that the overall health benefits of HRT outweigh the risks. What does this new study mean for you?

    Melt Stress with a Simple Mindfulness Practice that Sticks (Yes, Really!) from Author Deborah Huber

    Melt Stress with a Simple Mindfulness Practice that Sticks (Yes, Really!) from Author Deborah Huber

    Have you tried and failed to make a mindfulness habit stick? Many of us are attracted to the benefits of mindfulness—stress-busting, a sense of calm and centeredness, and a sharper awareness of wonder. But making the practice stick? Tricky. In this episode, we explore a simple daily mindfulness practice that anyone can begin using immediately to access the benefits of mindfulness and unlock more joy in their daily life. In this episode, Katie is joined by Deborah Huber, co-author of “Today I Noticed: A Little Book of Mindfulness That Will Change the Way You See the World.” We uncover the difference between meditation and mindfulness, explore how mindfulness can offer life lessons from the grocery store checkout line, and why a regular mindfulness practice lets you experience daily life as new and novel, even as you tread familiar territory.
