    EP 729 – But You Look So Healthy

    But you look so good!
    96% of illnesses are invisible. These people do not use a cane or any assistive device and may look perfectly healthy.
    60% are between the ages of 18 and 64.
    It's hard to know what to do when a person has an illness. It’s even harder when it's virtually invisible.
    So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating National Invisible Chronic Illness Week
    Don't be afraid to talk about what they're experiencing. Open the lines of communication and follow the other person's lead. If they want to go into details, they will. If they would rather talk about other things, they will let you know.
    If you're living with an invisible chronic illness it's important to keep connected. Reach out for support. It's only by opening up about your illness that you can educate people and invite them to be there for you.
    You may be surprised, but they may be dealing with their own invisible chronic illness and could really use your support, or they may become one of your biggest advocates or confidents. You won't know until you give them a chance.

    EP 728 – Long Lost Friends

    EP 728 – Long Lost Friends

    Have you lost touch with an old colleague? Have you ever thought about reaching out to a childhood friend?
    In the ‘old’ days, that would have been almost impossible and possibly very expensive. However, today, it is relatively easy to search down most people from our past. With social networks getting smaller and smaller, sometimes reaching out to past colleagues and friends can increase our sense of social connectedness and reduce our sense of isolation.
    Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Locate An Old Friend Day.
    This day is about reintroducing former relations into your life, and catching up with them on what’s happening in your life now, or just to take a walk down memory lane together.
    Gathering details, using search tools, having family and friends help: these are just some of the ways that you can find friends or colleagues.
    Social Media is one of the best ways to try and reconnect with old friends. But what if your old friend doesn’t use social media?
    You can use search engines like Classmates.com, Pipl, Wink, PeekYou, and Zabasearch to track them down, with a little help of some background information like their high school, college, or town they grew up in.
    It can be difficult to reach out and it may feel awkward. People change. You have changed. However you might be pleasantly surprised to find out that the person you once knew is someone you like even more today!

    EP 727 – RESPECT

    EP 727 – RESPECT

    I disagree with the usual sentiment. Respect is earned, not given. I believe that Respect is given, first. But you can lose my respect and you may have to earn it back.
    Our default setting should be to respect every person we meet. Every single one.
    Respect is not just deep admiration for someone elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements. Respect is due regard for the feelings, wishes, rights, or traditions of others.
    Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating National Respect Day.
    Start by treating people with a more polite approach. Are you saying ‘please’ and ‘thank you’?
    Respect their time, energy, and experience.
    Treat people they way you would hope that they would treat you with.
    Sometimes, people mistakenly think that they must agree when showing respect. That is not true. It is very possible, to disagree in a manner that demonstrates politeness and consideration. That can be done without berating the person, without insulting them or their opinions, and without causing hurt, guilt or shame.
    Respecting everyone can create a ripple out effect to others. Respect is like kindness and once demonstrated, it can have a profound impact on the person receiving it.
    If after getting to know a person you realize they are very cruel or bigoted, or they have demonstrated a lack of respect and understanding towards their fellow humans, you don't have to continue to respect them. But it is always best when we start from a place where we believe people are good.

    EP 726 – Time’s Up

    EP 726 – Time’s Up

    Life is too short. Some Day will never come. Tomorrow is not guaranteed.
    Time’s Up Day is here. Today is the day to make the most of your life.
    It is also the time to get over whatever is standing in between you and someone else: Arguments, disagreements, feeling slighted, jealous, or whatever it is. It is time to address the situation head on.
    Hurt is inevitable in significant relationships. Yet pain and strife do not have to mean a relationship is going to end.
    Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Time’s Up Day.
    Time is fleeting. Waiting until tomorrow, may be too late. Tell yourself that time is up and reach out to the person today. Call them on the phone, or send them an email.
    It takes two people to mend a broken relationship. There is no sense in trying to fix something if you are the only one willing to do the work. If the other person is unapologetic, dismissive, or continues hurtful behavior, it might be time to move on.
    If it is a worthwhile relationship to work on, then use your best communication skills. Instead of trying to think of what you need to say next, stop and try to understand what they are telling you. Careful listening shows respect and will help you both figure out what to do next.
    The time for repairing relationships is today

    EP 725 – Backpack Injury

    EP 725 – Backpack Injury

    Backpack Injury. Should Parents Be Worried About Their Children?
    With all of the stressors that parents have to worry about when their young children are going back to school, a backpack may be far down the list of priorities.
    When you place a heavy backpack filled with books, binders and gym clothes, the stress can pull you backwards. Research shows that up to 60% of children will experience back pain by the time they are 18 years old.
    So here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Backpack Safety Month:
    The maximum weight of a loaded backpack should not exceed 15% of the child’s body weight.
    Pick the right backpack that fits your child’s size and strength. If they can’t stand up straight, then they may be carrying too much weight.
    Choose a pack with a hip strap or waist belt and a padded back. A strap or belt can take as much as 50-70% of the weight off the shoulders and spine, and will equalize the strain on the bones, joints, and muscles.
    There is a free app featuring easy-to-perform posture exercises, that you can use in just three minutes a day to help keep your child healthy. Practice The Straighten Up Canada program anywhere as a great way to improve posture.

    EP 724 – Post-Secondary Stress

    EP 724 – Post-Secondary Stress

    Has Your Child Gone Off To Post-Secondary?
    Parents are bound to worry when their kids go off to post-secondary school. Will they eat, go to sleep and wake up without their supervision? Do I think they will be able to keep up with the work? Are they going to make friends or socialize too much? Will the pressure to use alcohol or drugs be too great?
    Post-secondary stress is something to worry about. When it comes to acknowledging and handling stress, students are among the most vulnerable segments of the population.
    Look for changes in behaviour – especially eating, sleeping and socializing patterns. Some students become distracted and have difficulty concentrating, while others will mention more colds and flus. How your child is affected by stress may be very different from how you are affected by stress. You may become more verbal while your child becomes more withdrawn.
    Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Dealing With Post- Secondary Stress
    Learn to listen and ask specific questions when you are concerned.
    Give advice, but don’t dictate.
    Try not to be judgmental if your child’s choices are not exactly what you would have them do.
    Before you intervene, ask yourself whether you need to get involved.
    Help them to learn from their mistakes.
    With your guidance and support, and by sharing the strategies listed above your child will be well on the road to becoming an independent and successful student.
