Hello Cara,

Our daily lives have changed dramatically. For many, the pandemic has taken a physical, emotional and financial toll which can make our mental health feel like it’s being stretched. If there was ever a time to take care of ourselves, it is now.

The most entertaining brain scientist, Dr. John Medina, provides mental tips for working from home. Best-selling author, Nora McInerny, who had the most popular TED Talk of 2019, knows firsthand that the lines between work and home are becoming blurred. Dr. Michele Borba, educational psychologist and author, talks to Hoda and Jenna of the Today show on how to lighten the mental load for parents and kids. 

I hope these tips help ease some the stressors in your life!

Let this be your mantra: “Nothing new for now”

We do not have more time than we did a year ago. We were always cramming five pounds of work into a one-pound bag—now we’re cramming even more. When the line between work and home becomes the threshold of your closet or the shutting of your laptop as you drift off to sleep, you cannot possibly tell yourself that you have more time on your hands. All of us need rest.

"Not only was she engaging, funny, relevant, articulate and authentic, but she went above and beyond to connect her message to the mission of our hospital."
-Children's Minnesota Foundation

Your brain on remote work: Mental tips for working from home

We don’t need to tell you this, but working from home can be stressful. It doesn’t have to be, though. The science on this is still kind of new, but some recent studies offer some clues as to how we can make this unnatural situation more tolerable and maybe even enjoyable.

"We can’t begin to describe what a hit John Medina was as our closing keynote speaker. He gave a presentation that rocked the house. Our audience loved him! His delivery is dynamic and he kept his listeners with him right up to the end. He exudes energy and is a delightful person." -Global Learning

Managing back-to-school anxiety in kids

Michele talks to Hoda and Jenna about helping kids go back to school after the pandemic forced many out of the classroom. With the stresses of remote schooling, parents worry about their kids' mental health and well being, wondering when they should step in to help manage their anxieties.

"It was a delight meeting Dr. Borba. The feedback was amazing, and people left with useful tips. After her presentation she made herself available for book signings. She was very warm and very funny, we all enjoyed her!"
