Bringing Goodness in Light of Grief: Lessons from Cole

Melanie Coppola, president of the Live Like Cole Foundation, joins me to look at bringing goodness in light of grief. Melanie’s family created the Live Like Cole Foundation after Nicholas “Cole” lost his life to a drunk driver in Vero Beach, Florida.
Melanie, Cole’s sister, shares her grief journey and how the memory of her brother is strengthened through the decision to create an organization focused on passions that represent what her brother stood for: kindness, community and giving back.
Grief is life long and impacts every person differently. We take a different approach in this week’s episode connecting passion to make a difference in our own community with carrying on the memory of a loved one. It’s an inspiring episode that will encourage and inspire many during this Holiday Season.

When Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) Comes to Visit

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a form of depression
that comes to visit the same time every year. Most who suffer are
impacted during the winter months, but there are those who struggle
during the summer months.
We look at signs and symptoms as well as resources for decreasing the
intensity of SADs impact and getting through these few months feeling
more whole than deflated.

Lonely. Stressed. Disconnected. In a time of ongoing stressors we have millions
feeling a sense of disconnect and isolation like never before. This ongoing state has

The Balance of the Working Mom and the Pursuit of Mental Wellness

There are millions of women right now feeling sorely overwhelmed trying to keep a balance as a professional, mom, friend, sibling, etc. Too often, working women in the workplace who are also trying to raise children are wired to think that asking for help when overwhelmed or creating healthy boundaries are weaknesses vs a strength and a need. We end up having countless overworked, over stressed women who are functioning, but not truly living the quality of life they were intended for.
Pauliana Lara, attorney, public speaker and women’s advocate, joins me to discuss strategies for women to find that healthy balance, in seeking support and creating a path of less judgement and greater encouragement to our fellow women.

The 4-1-1 of LOL

Laughter is the best medicine. With the roles we hold in life
we can sometimes take ourselves too seriously. Whether it’s due to
fear of what others think of us or having unrealistic expectations for
ourselves we can withhold joy from our lives without even realizing it.

A key to a higher level of living? Laughter. Learning to choose laughter
instead of judging ourselves for our mistakes. It’s the pursuit of being
comfortable doing things that we may consider risky, because, what
would people think of us? Whether it’s dancing in our living room in
front of our family or singing in our car with the windows down, it’s
the pursuit of simple joys that make us laugh, smile and truly live.

Getting Over Getting Older

Getting older can be tough on our body and our emotions.
How are you doing with the aging process? Whether we’re 25 or
65 aging can hit us differently.
But what’s crazy significant is how we choose to face how our body
and mind change over time. Being comfortable with who we are and the person we are becoming begins with being rooted in self love. When we love
ourselves, that reflection in the mirror is met with greater appreciation and
value. When society dictates and defines what beauty is and promotes
youth while devaluing age, we can get on a slippery slope of questioning our
own value.
Let’s take some time to remind ourselves of our beauty, inside and out, taking time to strengthen our view of the reflection that stares back at us in the mirror.
