  • Why We Enjoy Suffering & Understanding Your Freedom of Speech
    If you enjoy garlic, you are probably well aware that there is a downside to eating it - and that is it can make your breath stink. This episode begins with some easy and simple and practical advice from the Institute of Food Technologists that will neutralize garlic odor from your breath as well as from your fingers so you can eat as much of it as you like and not worry smelling like garlic. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/02/130204142609.htm It sounds strange when you say it out loud, but we humans like to suffer - sometimes. There are things we do that we probably wouldn’t do if they were easy and painless. It’s the suffering we endure that makes them meaningful. In fact, without suffering, life would be pretty dull according to Paul Bloom, a professor of psychology at Yale and author of the book The Sweet Spot: The Pleasures of Suffering and the Search for Meaning (https://amzn.to/3K5Zdci) . Listen as he explains why pleasure without suffering is somehow not as satisfying.  The first amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees us the right to free speech. Yet, a lot of people don’t really understand what that right really means or how that right has evolved over time according to attorney Ian Rosenberg. Ian serves as legal counsel for ABC News, teaches media law at Brooklyn College and is author of the book Free Speech Handbook: A Practical Framework for Understanding Our Free Speech Protections (https://amzn.to/3HZ8W25). He joins me to discuss what the right to free speech does and doesn’t allow.   Most breakfast cereals kids like have a lot of added sugar and sugar consumption is something many parents worry about. However, there is some good news about kids and cereal that parents may find surprising. Listen to hear what it is. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/breakfast-cereal-surprise-kids-ok-with-less-sugar-study-says/ Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

  • SYSK Choice: Little Known Benefits of Exercise & Why It’s Good to Talk to Strangers
    Why do some buildings have revolving doors? After all, they are sometimes heavy and hard to push, and a lot of people hate them. So where did they come from? There must be a purpose to them. Listen to hear a very surprising story. https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/63378/whats-point-revolving-doors If your 2022 New Year’s resolution involves exercising more, you really should listen to my guest Kelly McGonigal, research psychologist and lecturer at Stanford and author of the book, The Joy of Movement (https://amzn.to/2N2wide). Kelly explains not only the long-term benefits of movement but the instant and satisfying benefits of moving your body even just a little - right now. You may find what she has to say surprising as it isn't the same old exercise advice you've heard a million times before. Talking to strangers can be tedious. After all, what’s the point of having a 15 second conversation with someone in line at the supermarket who you will never se again? Perhaps that is not the way to look at it. Kio Stark has been seeking out strangers to talk to for a long time. She loves it. Kio is author of the book When Strangers Meet (https://amzn.to/2s2ihEU). Listen to hear her explain why and what benefits you can get for investing in those brief conversations rather than avoiding them. You can see her TED talk here: https://www.ted.com/talks/kio_stark_why_you_should_talk_to_strangers When a woman cries it can have a dramatic effect on a man. Not only because she is sad but also because of how her tears smell – seriously. This episode begins with an explanation of the connection between a woman’s tears and a man’s testosterone. http://healthland.time.com/2011/01/06/the-crying-game-womens-tears-dial-down-testosterone/ PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS!

  • Interesting Ways Lifestyle Affects Your Health & A Better Way to Understand Numbers
    If you haven’t got a New Year’s resolution to work on yet - I’ve got one for you - it’s tackling clutter! This episode begins with some thoughts about what clutter does to your mental health and how you can fix it. http://www.timetoorganize.com/wp-content/uploads/realsimple-article.pdf There is something called “lifestyle medicine.” It is the idea that what you eat, how you exercise and generally how you live your life will affect your health - for better or worse. That likely comes as no surprise to you, but you probably think the effects are minimal. And you would be wrong. For decades Dr. Dean Ornish has been researching lifestyle medicine and found that small changes in how you live ( actually just 4 changes) can have a huge impact on your health and longevity and even reverse chronic illness. The research is impressive, and the results are compelling. Listen as he discusses how you can make these changes and quickly see real improvement. Dr. Ornish is author of the book UnDo It! : How Simple Lifestyle Changes Can Reverse Most Chronic Diseases (https://amzn.to/3qYaSB7). Here is the link to his website for more info on his program: https://www.ornish.com/undo-it/ Numbers are sometimes hard to grasp. For instance, 1 million seconds equals 12 days. So how long is 1 billion seconds? You will have to listen to this episode to find out but I bet your guess is way off! Since we use numbers every single day, it just might help to find ways to better understand and explain them as well as make them memorable. Joining me with some great insight into this is Chip Heath. Chip teaches at Stanford, has authored several books and his latest is Making Numbers Count (https://amzn.to/3t3AMpG). Listen as Chip makes numbers come alive! Just about every food has an expiration date or “sell by” date or “best if used by” date on it. But in some cases they can be very misleading. A lot of foods will last a long time past the “sell by” date. You may be throwing away food that is perfectly fine. Listen and I will give you foods you can likely hang on to a little longer. https://www.webmd.com/diet/features/do-food-expiration-dates-matter#1 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS!

  • How to Set Goals to Make Them Happen and Interesting Differences Between Generations
    The room where you work, whether that’s at home or in an office, should probably be 77 degrees. Why? This episode begins with an explanation of why 77 degrees is the perfect working temperature. https://www.shrm.org/hr-today/news/hr-news/Pages/toohottoocold.aspx This is the time of year when people tend to set new goals for themselves. The process of how you set them can have a big impact on whether or not you actually achieve them, according to Michael Bungay Stanier. Often described as one of the top coaches in the world, Michael is author of a book called, How to Begin: Start Doing Something That Matters (https://amzn.to/3qL3UiH). Listen as he and I discuss how to set goals and improve your chances that you will actually achieve them.  It’s weird how we lump people into groups depending on what generation they are in. There are baby boomers, millennials, Gen Xers etc. Is there any validity to the idea that people born in a certain generation share traits and characteristics? Is it fair to make generalizations about a group based on when they were born? Those turn out to be interesting and complicated questions according to Bobby Duffy, professor of public policy and director of the Policy Institute at King’s College in London. Bobby is also author of the book, The Generation Myth: Why When You’re Born Matters Less Than You Think (https://amzn.to/3eUyIrL). Listen as he joins me for a very interesting conversation about this.  One way colds and other germs get spread in a household is by way of your toothbrush. Listen as I explain how that happens and how you can prevent germs from infecting others from your toothbrush. Source: Dr. Philip M.

  • SYSK Choice: How Your Biological Clock Works & Optimizing Your Meeting Time
    As admirable as it is to set a New Year’s resolution, the chances of sticking to it in the long term are slim. However, you can improve your odds of success. This episode begins with a strategy to help make life changes really stick. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/new-years-resolutionspsychology_us_5862d599e4b0d9a59459654c Although you have heard of your biological clock, there is a good chance you don’t really understand how it all works. Dr. Emily Manoogian is a post-doctoral fellow at the Salk Institute (https://inside.salk.edu/fall-2018/emily-manoogian/) and is an expert in chronobiology which is the study of our internal clocks and how they impact our lives. Emily joins me to explain how these clocks work and how they keep you on schedule. Watch her TED talk here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=20&v=SrBYSinpEtU&feature=emb_logo If you live in a cold climate, you know that getting ice off your windshield in the morning can be a slow process. However, there is a fast, safe and effective way you might want to try. Listen as I explain what it is. http://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-tips/defrost-car-windshield Some people like meetings but I suspect more people don’t than do. Why? Because meetings are often a big waste of time. David Grady is a writer and communications expert who created an interesting TED talk on how to save the world from bad meetings (https://bit.ly/37CnJxE). He joins me to explain how to get out of meetings you shouldn’t be in – and how to make the ones you do have to attend run more smoothly.  PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS!
