    Mindfulness: Beyond the Buzzword

    Mindfulness: Beyond the Buzzword

    It seems like everyone is talking about mindfulness these days. A quick Google search results in 9 Ways to Practice Mindfulness, 16 Types of Meditation and 28 Ways to Practice Mindfulness for Beginners. There is so much out there. So what is mindfulness, really, and does it even make a difference? Do I have to empty my head of all my thoughts, and sit cross-legged on the floor in a zen-like state? Listen in to this podcast episode as we talk with https://www.chconline.org/people/jennifer-salomon/ (Jennifer Salomon), Occupational Therapist at CHC about the physiology of mindfulness and practical ways to be more present (even for skeptics). Because “as soon as we tune in and recognize that we're not being mindful, we're already being mindful.” Download this episode today!

    Demystifying the College Experience for Students with Learning Differences

    The transition from high school to college is a rite of passage, a benchmark between parent and child. While exciting, balancing academic demands with the sudden need to be independent can feel daunting, especially for students with learning differences. How can you as a parent best prepare them while they’re still under your wing? In this podcast episode, we sat down with https://www.chconline.org/people/nicole-ofiesh/ (Dr. Nicole Ofiesh), Director of the Schwab Learning Center at CHC, as she shared wisdom from her 30 years in the field. She covers everything from resilience and self-advocacy to electronic calendars and on-campus support systems, reminding us that, above all, “it always comes back to love and compassion.”

    Teens, Stress and Sleep

    Teens, Stress and Sleep

    From the minute we become parents, we start fixating on sleep–are our babies getting enough? Too much? Will they ever sleep through the night? Will we? It’s a hot topic because we know how critical it is for healthy development, both mental and physical. As our kids turn to teens, we may monitor their sleep less, but it doesn’t become less important to their wellbeing and academic performance. Teens can face many impediments to consistent, restorative sleep, including stress, with an estimated 70-75% of teens getting less than the recommended 8 hours per night. In this podcast episode, we sat down with two CHC experts–https://www.chconline.org/people/joan-baran/ (Dr. Joan Baran), Clinical Director at CHC, and https://www.chconline.org/people/deepika-bose/ (Deepika Bose), Doctoral Psychology Intern–to learn strategies for helping your teen develop healthy sleep habits. You may even want to try some yourself!
