Journaling for Juniors & The Benefits of Writing

 

In today’s society, not only are we, working adults running around a mile per minute dealing with daily stress, but so are many in the younger generation, more specifically Generation Z or those born from 1998 to 2016.  

So if, I told you that there was a 15-20 minute activity that could decrease stress levels, improve your health and memory, strengthen writing and problem-solving skills, and motivates you to reach your goals, would you do it? Would it help to know it’s also free and you don’t have to leave the house?  

I’m talking about keeping a journal. This evening we’re going to talk about how taking time to write is healthy and why you should make journaling part of your daily or weekly routine.

Podcast Special Guest, Lisa Wright Bryant, is the author of “You Are Enough: Keeping It 100 With Yourself”.  This is a book/journal that encourages young adults to face the potentially paralyzing traps of their past and/or present that could stop them from living the life that they were created to live.

The goal is to empower them by providing strategies to overcome those traps and a journal for them to track their progress, which will allow them to document their thoughts while on the journey.

Sitting in the new Smoking


Can you believe that we are speeding towards a New Year?  2018 is right around the corner and many have already started thinking about what they want to accomplish in the new year whether it’s eating cleaner, saving more or getting their bodies back into shape by adding more movement into their daily routines. 

Research has linked sitting for long periods of time with a number of health concerns, including obesity and metabolic syndrome other conditions includes increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels. Too much sitting also seems to increase the risk of death from cardiovascular disease and cancer. 

 

Sitting has been termed the new smoking so we need to take action now to keep our bodies and bottoms healthy. 

 

 

Listen in as I talked to Podcast Guest, Dr. Dave Wilderman, founder of Wilderman Physical Therapy on some of the ways in which we can add more activity into our daily routines to keep our bodies aligned and healthy.

Print or iPad – Digital vs Print Media

 

“We are spending so much time touching, pushing, linking, scrolling and jumping through text that when we do sit down with a paper book or magazine our daily habits of jumping, clicking and linking are already ingrained within us”.

Do e-readers, smartphones, and tablets interfere with intuitive navigation of text and inhibit people from concentrating fully.  Does reading from the computer or tablet make it easier for students to become easily distracted and to multitask?  

For many educators, these habits raise concern about the implications for academic learning and retention.  We will discuss all of this and more on Social Media Sunday with the Delaware Blogger.

 

 

For this Podcast I interviewed Jonathan Harris, an author, brand ambassador, radio show host, life/career coach, blogger and vlogger and we discussed his latest book, “Master of Ceremonies, A Male’s Guide for a Successful Life” and his movement #GiveAuthorsaChance
