- The Promise Posted: November 4, 2018 - 58 minutes - 35.3 Mb -
Making promises to those we love is something midlife women do constantly. We mostly make promises to please others. Yet many of us have stopped making promises to ourselves, perhaps knowing we will probably break those promises, choosing others’ desires over our own. In this episode, listeners make a new promise to themselves and keep it. Their pledge could be as basic as promising to listen to our radio shows, and doing all the activities for no one but themselves. Keeping our promises starts a fundamental shift in our self-confidence.
Episode 37 - The Pillar of Power Posted: October 28, 2018 - 58 minutes - 35.9 Mb -
Our question is: Who have you become?
Western culture mostly looks outward, yet peace in midlife cannot come from this orientation. It can only be built on deep contentment and an acceptance that we will not find peace in our titles, possessions, or the roles we play at work and at home. When we begin in earnest to change our self-perspective, the world’s view of us as women also transforms. We stop being invisible and color back in our lives, to be seen again. Leigh and Crystal share their view that the growing number of midlife western women recreating themselves will also create changes in pro-social action, as the Dalai Lama suggests, peacefully saving the world.
Today's show is all about friendship and why our friends make us live longer and happier lives. Today is the best time to learn the fascinating science behind how longevity make our midlife minds perform better. When it comes to friendship we are only just starting to understand the deep and mysterious effects social interactions play on our brain! Having at least one solid friendship helps build up resistance to mental decline and disease. So listen up to this show all about our friendships.
Episode 35 - Wabi Women- Now or Never-Episode 35- Just Push Play on Midlife Posted: August 23, 2018 - 58 minutes - 34.9 Mb -
There is no next time, sometimes it is now or never. Wabi Women believe our midlife is that time of Now or never. Sometimes things go right, sometimes they go off the rails, either way, this episode of Wabi Women will nudge you to make change, big or small. It is never too late. Human beings mistakenly think that at a certain point, they are finished, yet, they are really continual beings in progress. People can and do continually change and these changes, now in Midlife, can actually bring about the best in us.
Episode 34 - Wabi Women- Purpose- Episode 34- Just Push Play on Midlife Posted: August 16, 2018 - 58 minutes - 35.5 Mb -
This episode is all about your Midlife Mission. Finding your purpose can become a great tool in making your Midlife matter. Today we re examine something called Ikigai. Culturally it’s not an encouraged thing to take a risk or many risks to be vulnerable at this age and stage of our lives. Most of the messages are about slowing down, reducing or eliminating risks and essentially fading away. Wabi Women challenge this and encourage each other to look for the adventure and beauty that is waiting to be discovered in this later chapter of life.
Episode 33 - Wabi Women- Smile- Episode 33- Just Push Play on Midlife Posted: August 9, 2018 - 58 minutes - 35.5 Mb -
Each time you smile you throw a little party for your brain! The act of smiling is scientifically proven to help achieve longevity and mental happiness. On Wabi Women we look at the science today behind the smile, and what message is being sent to our brains when we smile. Did you know there are dozens of different smiles, each with a different message our brain interprets? We have a great conversation about the Smile Experiment, and our Smile Scorecard, something our brain does each and every day calculating how often we smile, and to whom we smile.
Its all fodder for a longer life with more life in it.
Episode 32 - Wabi Women- Movement- Episode 32- Jusr Push Play on Midlife Posted: August 2, 2018 - 58 minutes - 54 Mb -
Wabi Women this week looks at the science behind movement and longevity. Empowerment begins in the muscles! Physical movement is deeply connected to brain health, and both physical and mental strength are fundamental in making Midlife and beyond matter. Research says exercise, and movement in specific, are incredible tools for adding longevity, and more importantly lifegevity. Have a listen.
Episode 31 - Wabi Women- The Power of Sleep- Episode 31-Just Push Play on Midlife Posted: July 26, 2018 - 58 minutes - 35.3 Mb -
WHAT IS THE SINGLE THING THAT YOU CAN DO TO RESET YOUR BODY AND BRAIN FOR LONGEVITY?
THE ANSWER MIGHT SURPRISE YOU! THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT PILLAR FOR LONGEVITY IS SLEEP. TODAY’S EPISODE IS ALL ABOUT THE SECRETS OF SLEEP, AND ITS RESTORATIVE NATURE AS WE CONTINUE OUR SERIES ON THE MIDLIFE BRAIN AND LONGEVITY.
In this episode we find out what Sparks joy! for us, and help you identify what also Sparks Joy for you! As Women we can realize in Midlife that our true purpose is much different than the life we have been leading. We may have been very successful in our career or in our designated roles. But Midlife is the time to make sure our successes have been for us, and we are not fulfilling someone else’s expectations. In this episode, listeners will discover- or perhaps- rediscover- what in their middle years is whispering for them to complete, while they still have time. How can they make a difference? What ideas resonate as both personal, and those that may also serve the greater good? Listen up to this episode!
Episode 29 - Wabi Women- The Power of Possibilities- Episode 29 -Just Push Play Posted: June 21, 2018 - 58 minutes - 34.9 Mb -
Crystal and I think as midlife women and beyond we need to stop acting as society has prescribed us to act- less outgoing, less demonstrative, frail and feeble – and start acting how we feel- strong, empowered wisdom keepers who have something to share with the world.
How we feel biologically has a lot to do with how we act.
There is so much to share with you today you might want to get out your Wabi Women notebook to jot down any thing that sparks interest amusement or thought. Then this week you can begin to chart the next seven weeks together as explore how to retool our mind and ignore the “what is suppose to happen now, calendars”,
