00:28 Download January 3rd, 2021

Annie Slease, Director of Advocacy and Education for NAMI, the National Alliance On Mental Health, Delaware, picked up our last coversation, and offered ways to better mental heath through the holidays.  She makes a ‘Bucket’ analogy, we can keep adding strees to that bucket, until it can hold no more and it spills out in conflict, outbursts and poor choices, bad decisions, and even physical health effects.  She tells us to allow ourselves grace in dealing with the hlidays and the continued shut-down, manage expectations and do things to help improve your outlook.  Stress is contagious, a calmer you can mean better relationships and make it easier for your children to cope.  She recommends simple things such and deep breaths, eating healthier foods and getting excercise, learning to say ‘no.’   For children she suggested getting creative in reimaging the holidays and finding new ways to celebrate.

Jewish Perspectives on the News and Politics with Burt Siegel

This program will not hold back on what the host and his guests believe is wrong with an American society in which anti-Jewish sentiments as well as racism have become too often tolerated, where cooperation across party lines is treated as treachery, where immigrants and refugees are seen as a threat to the “American Way of Life” and the gap between the ultra wealthy and the average American is ever widening. While it will reflect the values of Judaism and the Democratic party all are welcomed to share their thoughts regarding how we can achieve the dream of what our nation aspires to be about.
