The best way to support teens through emotional distress

Despite the fact that it seems like young people today have life easier and better than any generation before them, there is a growing incidence of youth depression, anxiety and suicide that we, as parents / grandparents / teachers / friends, are ill equipped to deal with.

It’s interesting that we’re taught how to deal with someone’s physical injuries, but dealing with someone’s emotional or mental injuries or illness isn’t something that’s considered much. You often hear news reporters say things like “one driver died, the other was uninjured”, no mention is made of the emotional impact that an accident has on the people involved.

Dr Stephen Spencer has dedicated his life to creating a CPR for emotional & mental trauma, particularly in young people. And teaching those around them what to do when their young people are struggling with life.*

How To Manage Your Hormones, Health, and Happiness During Menopause

Why is it, when we reach menopause, all of a sudden the food we’ve eaten for the previous forty-odd years makes us feel bloated? One minute, we’re following a food plan that’s worked for us our whole lives and the next minute we’ve gained 10 pounds, we’re not sleeping and we feel like a beached whale. How does that happen?

Elizabeth Ward and her friend, fellow registered dietitian nutritionist Hillary Wright, spent their lives supporting women to feel and look their best.

Then suddenly, menopause hit and they realised that what had worked for them so far, didn’t work any more.

Liz and Hillary set out to find out not only why that happened, but also to try to work out which foods are good for you during and after menopause.

They published the results of their research in a book titled The Menopause Diet Plan, A Natural Guide to Managing Hormones, Health, and Happiness to demystify diet and exercise during the transition to menopause and afterwards.

If you want to know how to get the best from your body as you move through menopause and beyond, you need to listen to this. It’s a fascinating look at the impact of our changing hormones.

Today's Guest: Elizabeth Ward

Registered Dietician, Nutritionist, Author and Speaker

Liz is a registered dietitian nutritionist in the Boston, MA area and co-author of The Menopause Diet Plan, A Natural Guide to Managing Hormones, Health, and Happiness.
 
She and her co-author, fellow registered dietitian nutritionist Hillary Wright, are passionate about helping women feel and look their best during the transition to menopause for the rest of their lives.
 
They write about what they know – both are post menopausal women who are experts in women’s health – and they blend science-based information with practical advice.

(By the way, my heartfelt thanks go out to Liz for her patience with me during this podcast! I was feeling pretty awful and had taken some cold and flu tablets to try to perk me up a bit. Unfortunately, they had the opposite effect because they promptly shut my brain down and I could hardly string a sentence together!)

How to go to bed feeling good about yourself

When life throws you a curveball, it tends not to stop at one; you tend to get a whole bag of curveballs coming at you at once. How do you deal with that? How do you stop yourself, breathe and remind yourself who you are and what’s important to you? I hadn’t intended to ask Terry Vincent those questions, but that was where we ended up (me, go off topic with a guest? When has that ever happened before?)

One of the truly best things about getting older is you begin to stop caring what other people think. Take Terri, for example. When she started out business coaching, there were rules about how a Business Coach should look, how they should dress, where they should work, how they should run their seminars. Terri tried fitting in for a few years and then decided to do things her own way.

And business boomed.

A few years later, she was a proven global facilitator at iLAB, a 7 or 15 day Entrepreneurial Accelerator program where she worked with entrepreneurs to do business differently. Instead of working in their businesses, she teaches them how to work on their business, but in a totally different way, teaching them how find their flow, discover their purpose, design their lives, and create global enterprises.

And they do this not in some grey-walled corporate seminar room but in Bali.

What I haven’t mentioned, because I didn’t want it to be the main headline, is that among the curveballs that Terri has been thrown is dealing with and coming to terms with having a daughter who’s an addict and all the fear, guilt, shame and worry that goes with that. With all that going on, how do you go to sleep at night and still feel that you’ve done okay?
Listen to the podcast and find out how this extraordinary woman purposefully creates her life. And why she does it.
