How do you go from burnout to building a business about self-care… alongside Venus Williams?   For this Women of Color Rise podcast, Analiza talks with Stephanie Morimoto, the Owner and CEO of Asutra. She shares how she started her journey from 18 hour work days and burning out before she turned 30. She was so tired on weekends that she couldn't even get to bed and would crash on the couch. Stephanie decided to make a change. She decided to focus on self care and get clear on who she wanted to be in life. This led Stephanie to buy a small business called Asutra, which is woman-owned, women-led, and a team of 60% people of color. Asutra's mission is about active self care, offers 50+ natural remedies to help people take care of themselves on purpose so they can get the most out of life. The products are so good that Venus Williams (yes that Venus Williams) was already using Asutra's products and reached out to Stephanie. Venus is now a part owner and Asutra's team as Chief Brand Officer. Here are tips Stephanie shares: Practice self-awareness – Get a good therapist to understand your patterns, often tied to what we learned in childhood. Embrace that we are enough – We don't need to be productive to prove our worth. Take time to reflect – Stephanie was able to take time to reflect and get clear on who she wanted to be. She also used The Artists Way to journal and find a way she could be creative and give back to the community.  If you want to contribute, take care of yourself – To take care of our world, we need to be in community and take care of each other. To take care of each other, that means we need to have a reservoir of energy, which means taking care of ourselves. Everyone deserves to be happy.

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for November 10, 2022 is: lapidary • LAP-uh-dair-ee • adj Lapidary is used to describe something—usually the style of one's writing or speech—that is elegant and precise in a way that suggests similar qualities associated with inscriptions in stone monuments. It also has the less figurative meaning, “of, relating to, or suggestive of precious stones or the art of cutting them.” // In a single, lapidary couplet, the poet exquisitely captured the bittersweet mood of autumn. See the entry > Examples: “Last year, [Venus] Williams published an op-ed in the [New York] Times in which she described how her mother, Oracene, at the start of Venus's career, counselled her to take care of her ‘whole self,' not only her body but her mind. … Watching Williams, earlier this week, with her lapidary grace and impenetrable expressions, I thought it might explain something else, too. To a degree that I have rarely witnessed in another person, and perhaps never in a prominent athlete, Williams seems to have reserved her self, protected it. There is, behind the calm façade, an inner life that shows in flashes of coolness and bursts of passionate, athletic intensity.” — Louisa Thomas, The New Yorker, 2 Sept. 2022 Did you know? The Latin word for “stone” is lapis, which rock hounds and jewelry lovers may be familiar with as the term for a semiprecious, deep blue gem also known as lapis lazuli, or “stone of the sky.” In the 1300s, lapis lent its shine to the English noun lapidary, referring to a cutter, polisher, or engraver of precious stones, as well as to the art of such a person. The crystalline refinement involved in the work of a lapidary eventually led, centuries later, to the use of lapidary as an adjective describing things that have the elegance and precision of inscriptions carved in stone monuments. Today it is used most often to characterize speech or prose (such as an essay, memoir, or address) that is considered notably clear and fine, but lapidary can also describe virtues such as grace and dignity, whether observed in one's language or character.

#33: Sleep and Sex – Part 1

A few years ago, a survey by the Sleep Council in England found that 1 in 4 people in a couple would get up during the night and go to another room to get a good night's sleep. Following that, a report by the National Sleep Foundation in America demonstrated that almost the same number (25%) of couples admitted to sleeping in separate bedrooms. In fact, a more recent anonymous survey found that 30%-40% of couples sleep in different beds. Part of the societal stigma (and anxiety for individuals couples) surrounding a “sleep divorce” is the incorrect assumption that if you're not sleeping together, then you're not *sleeping* together. Because of the negative connotations, the world's leading export on the topic, Dr. Wendy Troxel, has suggested renaming it a “new sleep alliance.” Whatever we call it, though, it seems clear that more people are admitting to sleeping separately. Of course, sleep divorce isn't for everyone. Some couples feel safety and security when co-sleeping. The science is rather clear. On average, couples do not typically sleep as well with a partner next to them as when they are alone. When one person moves in their sleep, there's a 50% chance that their partner will wake up or suffer worse sleep as a consequence. Moreover, the sleep-stage quantity and quality of that sleep is objectively worse across numerous metrics when sharing a bed relative to sleeping alone. However, there's an interesting twist in this tale of co-sleeping: despite sleep being objectively worse, couples will often say they still feel more satisfied overall with their slumber experience when they are sleeping in the same bed. All of which begs the question of what are we to do here? Matt offers four actionable suggestions: 1) be honest with yourself about your sleep needs; 2) have a gentle, honest conversation with your partner about your sleep needs as a couple; 3) suggest testing out your agreed new sleep arrangement for a period of time; and 4) try to retain much of what you would get by sleeping together while you're sleeping apart. By this, Matt means the bookends of sleep: the saying good night and good morning. It's a small price to pay for both partners getting great sleep at night, which will also improve your relationship.Please note that Matt is not a medical doctor, and none of the content in this podcast should be considered medical advice in any way, shape, or form, nor prescriptive in any way.Today's podcast is sponsored the biochemical electrolyte drink company LMNT, and they are very kindly offering eight free sample packs when you purchase any one of their orders.

It's our monthly New and Notable episode for October, and this month we've got intriguing new podcasts and exclusive interviews with some of their creators. True crime is one of the most popular podcast genres, but the stories we hear don't often centre the victims or the people left in the wake of tragedy. That's what the new podcast Media Circus with Kim Goldman aims to change. The course of Goldman's life changed when her brother, Ron Goldman, was murdered alongside OJ Simpson's ex wife, Nicole Brown Simpson. In the media circus that ensued, and her enduring grief, Kim was struck by the disparity between how the media covers crime and what it's like to be personally affected by it. This week, Kim joins us for an interview about her hopes for the podcast and what she's learned from speaking to so many families stricken by trauma. Plus, a conversation with one of the creators of Hot Money, the series that takes listeners inside the porn industry. And, Serena and Venus Williams are revered as tennis greats, but it hasn't always been that way. This week we're bringing you the inspiring minds behind the latest and greatest podcasts – and, of course, a sampling of their work.

Women World Leaders' Podcast

Join Kelly Williams Hale today to hear what God's Word has to say about shame. Shame can often lead to self-sabotage in our lives, God's grace covers our pain and shortcoming. His grace frees us to become who He says we are. We can trade our pain for purpose. Our fear for courage. Our shame for significance. "Instead of your shame there shall be a double portion; instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their lot; therefore, in their land they shall possess a double portion; they shall have everlasting joy." (Isaiah 61:7 ESV) ***** Hi there, and welcome to the Women World Leaders Podcast. My name is Kelly Williams Hale and I'm your host today on Celebrating God's Grace. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I'm an author, speaker and coach leading women through inner healing and intimacy work. I teach women how to get past proving their worth and step into the purpose and plan God has for them. And so today, I want to share a message that the Lord gave me around shame. It is a loaded topic. To be clear, shame is an emotion. Like fear, guilt, anger, overwhelm and happiness. Shame is simple a feeling. I found this definition by Brene Brown, the author of Dare to be brave: Shame is the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing we are flawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging. The roots of shame often come from our childhood. It's the feeling we get when we do something that disappoints the people we love. Have you ever heard the words, “shame on you?” Parents often use this phrase to correct their children when they've made a mistake. If you're a mom listening, it's super important for us to be mindful of the words we speak. Proverbs 18:21 says: Life and death are in the power of the tongue. We obvious don't want to speak words of shame on our children. And speaking of shame, mama's please release any feelings of shame that you may have spoken. I have an 11-year-old and understand the frustration when our kids misbehave or don't follow instruction. My point is our words are so powerful. A better way to correct, is to let them know that WHAT they did is not okay. We separate and support WHO they are from the behavior. We can often feel ashamed when we mess up, our behavior. But praise God that we can go to him and repent – ask forgiveness and remember WHO we are. Psalm 139:14 says “we are fearfully and wonderfully made” God knows we're going to make mistakes. He knows I've made a lot of mistakes. And the enemy would like nothing more than for me to feel ashamed. Feel the shame that I've disappointed God and how could he love me. But sisters, God loves us so much! Romans 8:37-39 NIV 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. John 3:16 NIV 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. Satan uses the feelings of shame to make us question our value and worth. When we feel unloved or not belonging, we can often undermine our own success. By believing we're undeserving of rewards, celebration, or accolades. Have you ever said, I'm going to start my diet tomorrow? And you have all the best intentions to “be good” – but your coworker brought donuts and just one won't hurt… So, you have the donut – but beat yourself up for failing again, feeling shame that you can't stick to anything, etc. etc. Sisters, we all do this! So how do we release shame? Before I share, I'd like to tell you a story. It's about Will Smith. Do you remember the Academy Awards ceremony back in March of this year, which is 2022 – Will Smith was expected to win his very first Oscar for King Richard, the story of Serena and Venus Williams and their dad's influence on their tennis career. And if you recall, Chris Rock was the host and made a joke about Jada, Will's wife, starring in GI Jane 2. Because of her bald head. So, Will Smith walks up - onto the stage - and slapped Chris Rock. It was SHOCKING. Will Smith is widely known as a likeable guy and this reaction from him was totally out of character. When I watched the replay the next morning – I immediately recognized what happened. It was self-sabotage. Will Smith didn't feel like he was worthy of that ultimate achievement. We can sabotage our own success because deep down, we don't believe we deserve it. Shame can be a trauma-response. I believe Will Smith's response to Chris Rock's joke, subconsciously, was deep-seated shame for unresolved trauma that he experienced in life. Many of us struggle with unresolved trauma. This is why we all need Jesus. His grace covers our pain and shortcoming. His grace FREES us to become who we ARE in Christ. We can trade our pain for purpose. Our fear for courage. Our shame for significance. A sidebar. If somebody acts out of character, it's usually because something's going on in their life. Let's strive to be more curious and empathetic before we go to judgement. Ok, so how do we deal with shame. First of all, we recognize who we are. Who God says we are. 1 Peter 2:9 ESV But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. When the enemy's lies begin to creep up like, who do you think you are? OR remember what you did? We must ACTIVATE the authority that Jesus gave us with the Holy Spirit. Luke 10:19 19 Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you. 2 Corinthians 3:17 ESV Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. When I was young and didn't have a personal relationship with Jesus, it felt like God was just waiting for me to mess up. When we are in Christ, His grace is sufficient. And we can release those shameful feelings we have when we've messed up. Satan who would like nothing better than for us to be separated from God. We tend to want to hide from the Lord when we sin. We isolate. And that makes the enemy so happy. Let's choose to run to God. He's not surprised. He knows and wants us to remember who we are. Romans 8:1 ESV There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. I'm going to close in prayer.

You'll get tips and tricks from Veronica as she shares how her team expands their vision on who they're becoming, how they are building, know where they're going and who they're going with. The end goal is to have a good impact on people's lives. She talks about building a system that works for them, from having the best recruitment, and training process to taking accountability for their targeted goals. As John always highlights, having a clear vision gives you and your team a decision-making filter. This keeps your business moving forward in the right direction.  Making decisions involves hard resolution and commitment to change for the better. Veronica shares her personal struggle as she had to remove toxic relationships, anyone and anything that is not in alignment with what she's building, dropping bad habits, her challenges on taking her health to the next level, and being a leader that her team looks up to. Once she was firm on the changes, it altered her life for the better. She goes on to advise that in everything that's happening, you have to trust the process, rebuild the right way, and stay true to your vision. There are no excuses, exemptions, or turning back.  The rebuilding, restructuring, and decision-making are secondary to having a clear vision. What are you building it for? What are your goals? What are you trying to accomplish and where do you want to go? Be in the pro-level behavior so you can be on a pro-level status in your life.       Show Notes 1:28 Vision Veronica talks about how important vision is for their team, how they build a team that can operate and expand their vision to know where they are going, who they're going with, and have an impact on people's lives. 7:45 Clear Decision-Making Filter John shares a piece from the book, The gap and the gain where it defines the vision and what it does to give you and your team a clear decision-making filter. A story and concept that helps understand vision in a deeper sense. 10:00 Staying True to the Vision Veronica imparts her personal story on making hard decisions in life to get her where she is right now. It entails removing toxic relationships, bad habits, things, and people that are not in alignment with her vision. She started making serious decisions that tremendously changed her life and business in the process. 14:06 Having A Clear Vision The rebuilding, restructuring, and decision-making are secondary to having a clear vision. What are you building it for? What are your goals? What are you trying to accomplish and where do you want to go? 15:15 Interview with Venus Williams Veronica revealed her experience in interviewing Venus Williams, and how she prepared to ensure she delivers, conveys, and connects the message to the audience to get a lot of value from the interview.  22:00 Be in the Zone Vanessa shared that the highlight of her interview was how to honor people being in their zone. She went on to explain how she learned a lot from watching Venus' energy, and how she emulated and acted like a champion like her.  24:59 Pro-level Status and Pro-level Behavior If you want to operate on a pro-level status, you have to behave in a pro-level way, and avoid amateur habits.  25:57 Taking the Team to the Next Level Vanessa will continue to take her team to the next level, she's finding her successor, continuously coaching them, and focusing on partner relationships.

The tragedy us that most of them not only fail to help but actually make insomnia worse.  Most common among these is alcohol, which hurts your sleep in at least three different ways: 1) it sedates your brain, rather than generating naturalistic sleep 2) it increases the frequency of nighttime awakenings and makes it harder to fall back to sleep, and 3) it inhibits REM sleep.THC also inhibits REM sleep, and users can develop a dependency on and tolerance to it, requiring more to get the same sleep effect. Worse still, THC is associated with a severe withdrawal insomnia, which only leads to relapse use. Another ineffective tool is melatonin. Melatonin does not help people with insomnia sleep, as we discussed in the episode all about Melatonin. The other option is classic prescription sleeping pills. However, based on their safety concerns and their minimal effectiveness long-term, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the American College of Physicians (ACP) now state that classic sleeping should no longer be the first-line treatment for insomnia. Instead, the first line treatment for insomnia should be the non-drug approach called cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBTi), and the one that Matt typically advocates for.At a high level, CBTi involves working with a trained clinician for several weeks to change your habits, behaviors, mental beliefs, and stress around sleep. Many people with insomnia lose all confidence in their sleep and have terrible anxieties around not sleeping—in other words, their sleep controls them, and CBTI is designed to reverse that. Many clinical studies have shown that CBTi is just as effective as sleeping pills in the short term yet has no negative side effects. Unlike sleeping pills, its benefits can last for many years after stopping work with your therapist. Please note that Matt is not a medical doctor, and none of the content in this podcast should be considered medical advice in any way, shape, or form, nor prescriptive in any way.Today's podcast is supported by MasterClass - the online streaming platform where anyone can learn from the world's best about a variety of topics such as cooking, business, art, entertainment, and, of course, technology.

Are you looking to make your big break into the hospitality industry? Well, look no further because today's guest is looking for an Intermediate Interior Designer! Sonya Haffey is the Principal at V Starr, the design company that was founded by Venus Williams. Sonya joins the host Dan Ryan to talk about the need to hire in this industry and what to look for in new employees. Links to the job opening in the show notes.   Takeaways:  When you are looking at hiring someone, you want to try and hire someone that is smarter than you and can push you to be better yourself.  It's essential to give new hires space to be themselves but also space to fail. It's important for them to use failure as a learning lesson and grow from it. You don't want to deal with drama in the workplace. Hire people that are not going to bring negative energy into the workplace or cause issues.  In the hospitality industry, it is very common for people to burnout and not have a good work/life balance. At V Starr, they make sure to have to keep that balance to avoid burnout.   Quote of the Show: 1:18 “My goal in life is for you to prove me wrong at least three times a day. If you can prove me wrong, you'll make my day, I'll be the happiest person alive.”   Links: LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/sonya-haffey-b054b320/ Website: https://www.vstarr.com/ Intermediate Interior Designer job opening: https://www.vstarr.com/careers/    Ways to Tune In:  Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/0A2XOJvb6mGqEPYJ5bilPX Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/defining-hospitality-podcast/id1573596386 Google Podcasts: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZGVmaW5pbmdob3NwaXRhbGl0eS5saXZlL2ZlZWQueG1s Amazon Music: ​​https://music.amazon.com/podcasts/8c904932-90fa-41c3-813e-1cb8f3c42419 Podbean: https://www.defininghospitality.live/ YouTube : https://youtu.be/CRg1clxzZFk

Join a refreshing conversation with Augustine and DeWayne Crocker, Jr as they discuss what it looks like to steward influence, lead worship with humility, and why adopting a continuous learning mentality is essential for young leaders. Discovering his love for music and performance at an early age, DeWayne has been singing since he was just five years old. DeWayne has been a household name through his local communities for quite some time, but it was not until his viral social media moments in recent years that led him to reach fans in a broader spectrum and took his music career to new heights. Since the age of 16, DeWayne has had many fortunate opportunities to travel and sing professionally, performing with and for some of the industry's best voices, musicians, and producers. In 2015, he was the youngest contestant to go on and compete in a rigorous auditioning and training process for the final contestant selection for BET's Sunday's Best, where his voice and soul impacted every judge, contestant, and spectator on set. With more than 60 million digital views across Youtube and Facebook, DeWayne has gained notoriety worldwide and has been fortunate enough to grace some of the biggest stages and platforms in the music industry. DeWayne was blessed to compete on Season 18 of American Idol in 2019. His journey on the show was so captivating that the producers asked him to return as a Comeback Candidate the following year, which elevated DeWayne's platform and passion for his faith. DeWayne uses his music not only to minister but to set a standard for his generation. "I want others to know that your dreams can become a reality. You have to stay faithful, focused, hear, and follow the path that God has laid out for you. It may not be instantaneous, but it always happens at the right time," said DeWayne in an interview on ABC. DeWayne's ministry in music has granted him some fantastic opportunities to share his voice and ministry with a variety of audiences, including being asked to sing at the wedding nuptials of Tennis legend Serena Williams and now-husband Alexis Ohanian in 2017. The star-studded event included guests such as Beyonce, Venus Williams, Kelly Rowland, and many more. He is currently a transferring junior at Oral Robert's University in Tulsa, OK. He is majoring in Biblical Literature and minoring in Business Administration. DeWayne plans to keep his faith first throughout his journey to becoming a disciplined, molded, and cultivated leader for the world.

Humans can easily distinguish between a zero-chance event (e.g., the Washington Nationals winning the World Series in 2022) and a sure thing (e.g., the sun coming up tomorrow). But in between those two clear outcomes, it turns out that we're not great at estimating odds.In this episode of Choiceology with Katy Milkman, a bias that affects the way we predict the likelihood of rare events.Katia Jordan had all the makings of a tennis star: a preternatural talent, an intense drive to succeed, top-tier coaches, and parents who supported her dream completely. She was certain that she would be the next Venus Williams. But along the way, she discovered that her path to tennis glory was not as straight as she imagined.Katia Jordan is a former Division 1 tennis player and is currently script coordinator on the television program All American Homecoming.Next, Katy speaks with UCLA psychology professor Craig Fox about how we tend to overweight the likelihood of small probabilities. Building on seminal work by his mentor Amos Tversky and Daniel Kahneman, Dr. Fox explains a bias in the way we imagine the odds of rare events and demonstrates approaches gleaned from his research that can help us better avoid distortions in the way we conceptualize risk and reward.  Craig Fox is the Harold Williams Chair and Professor of Management at the UCLA Anderson School of Management.Finally, Katy gives examples of the areas in your life where you can save money, improve health, and avoid some anxiety by better understanding the true likelihood of rare events.Choiceology is an original podcast from Charles Schwab.

#poe @ravens mascot tore his #acl last night but 23 straight #nflpreseason wins for the ravens.  Former #tarheels QB #samhowell had a good game for Skins I mean @commanders should be starting over #carsonwentz sooner than later.  #drakemaye five #touchdown passes in @uncfootball win over @famufb 56-24 last night.  Nice opening game for Maye.  That was one scary #knockout on @toprank on @espn last night.  #richardtorrezjr knocked out #marcoantoniocanedo face first.  Canedo should retire and I want to see what Torrez Jr. can do against better competition.  #llws #tennessee team #josiahporter keep playing and kicking butt.  Legally blind in one eye hasn't stopped him from thriving.  @byuwvolleyball disgusting what happened to @dukevb player #rachelrichardson who had to endure racial slurs throughout the match.  And she had meeting with BYU AD but Volleyball coach #heatherolmstead wasn't there.  #coachk wouldn't have put up with that crap and BYU putting a #policeofficer near the bench isn't good enough.  @usopen starts tomorrow.  Excited to watch #serenawilliams & #venuswilliams play doubles together.  #shoheiohtani another win last night.  Leads @angels in innings pitched and plate appearances. No big deal.  Hasn't been done since 1876.  Thanks @statsbystats for that gem.  And why are they doing another #fletch movie and #jonhamm in the lead.  You can not be serious!!!!

#28: Insomnia - Part 3

Today's episode takes two questions as its subject: first, why does someone develop insomnia, and second, what adds gasoline to the sleep-disorder fire of insomnia and only makes it rage more powerfully? These are two very complex questions, but through lots of great science and wonderful scientists, we now have a conceptual model explaining how you may find yourself falling into the pit of insomnia. This is called the “3-Ps” model, and it consists of a three-step knock-on cascade of factors that lead to insomnia: predisposing, precipitating, and perpetuating factors.Predisposing factors are those that make a person more vulnerable to insomnia, a good example being certain types of genes that play a non-trivial role in your risk of developing insomnia. It's been discovered that insomnia shows a genetic heritability of between 28%-45%, so if one or both of your parents had insomnia, there is a predisposing risk of developing it. This is not, however, an absolute guarantee that you will develop the condition; these genes simply make you statistically more predisposed. Instead, something else has to come along to flick the first domino that causes the chain reaction development of insomnia.This inciting flick is what the second P—precipitating factors—refers to. The word “precipitate” comes from the Latin root praecipitat, meaning “thrown headlong into something,” which is a good description of what a precipitating factor is—it's a trigger that pushes you headlong into this thing called an insomnia disorder. Examples of these factors include bereavement, bad breakups, and stress at work, all of which can push someone over the threshold of developing insomnia.The third P—perpetuating factors—can also be understood through its Latin root, perpetuus, meaning “to continue or make permanent.” Perpetuating factors are those which continue the condition and make it even more permanent. They include examples of poor sleep hygiene like drinking too much caffeine during the day or using alcohol or THC (which is involved in cannabis) as a sedative in the evening. Of course, it's completely understandable that someone suffering from insomnia would reach for the crutch of alcohol or THC, but they are now understood to be perpetuating factors that only make matters worse.Please note that Matt is not a medical doctor, and none of the content in this podcast should be considered medical advice in any way, shape, or form, nor prescriptive in any way.Today's podcast is supported by MasterClass - the online streaming platform where anyone can learn from the world's best about a variety of topics such as cooking, business, art, entertainment, writing, sports, science, health, and, of course, technology.
