When something happens that weighs on your mind and affects your relationships, your work and your life, how do you escape from the feeling? What can you do if you are working toward a goal, but your emotions get in the way of achieving it? Or you can’t quite get out of a rut you’re in with your job or a relationship? Our guest talks about how to develop “emotional agility” to deal with the thoughts, emotions and the stories we have in our lives, so we can attain the goals we set for ourselves, and live a more fulfilling life.
With the baby boomers transitioning into retirement in record numbers, and their parents living longer, we’re facing an eldercare challenge that’s bigger than we’ve ever seen before in this country. Who will take care of all of the older Americans who will need medical and end-of-life assistance in the coming decades? And how will we ensure that elder citizens will be able to live in comfort and dignity during their senior years? We talk to an activist about her own experiences with the system, and learn about strategies for dealing with the eldercare challenges that face us.
