Having trouble coping with the stress and isolation of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic?
If you're stressed out, struggling to sleep, experiencing family friction, or having one too many quarantinis, please consider attending a live online summit this Friday, April 3rd. It's completely *free*, and I'll be one of the expert panelists.
The webinar is from 12 - 3 PM Central Time (1-4 pm Eastern Time). I'll be speaking from 2-2:30 EST about what you need to do during the day to get better sleep at night. And then I'll lead a guided imagery to help you prime your body to get a good night's rest.
The other panelists will be talking about how to ease tension in your body and mind, navigate relationship challenges, and how to know if you need to dial back your cocktail consumption. They are lovely people who really know their stuff.
You can sign up for FREE and join the zoom webinar at any time on Friday while it's live, OR you can pay a small amount to get the recording and listen later.
I hope you'll join us for an informative afternoon full of proven strategies so you can both survive and thrive under our current circumstances.
Radio and Podcasts
I've been doing a number of radio and podcast interviews as well as print and online magazine interviews about integrative pain management, hypnosis, meditation, intuition, and more. Check my Twitter and Facebook for details about upcoming interviews (many of which are available on iTunes). Here are the ones that are currently available:
Minds & Mics: I spoke with Psychologist Nick Wignall about all things hypnosis - myths, facts, and how to best use hypnosis to feel and live better. You'll love Nick's conversational style (plus, he has *the* perfect voice for podcasting). And he was kind enough to link to an array of interesting things that we discussed during our interview, including a video showing surgery with hypnosis as the sole analgesia.
eCareDiary: Mind-Body Tools to Enhance Sleep for Older Adults (13:13 min). In this podcast interview, I go beyond sleep hygiene to discuss other mind-body tools, such as mindfulness, guided imagery and hypnosis, and binaural beats (brainwave entrainment) to help manage insomnia and foster better sleep in general. I also discuss some of the reasons that we have more sleep issues as we age, as well as shed light on myths about sleep, and mention health behaviors that can interfere with good quality sleep. The tips discussed here apply not only to adults and caregivers, but generally.
Inquisitive Souls with Jason MacKenzie - "Emotional Tai Chi" (72 min). In this interview, Jason and I spoke about everything from the difference between therapy and coaching, hypnosis and everyday trances, how our pasts can predict our futures (and how to change this), why it's much better to take a "Tai Chi" rather than a boxing approach when you are trying to help someone change, men's mental health, and much, much more!
