In life, we hold on to lots of stuff; stuff that's icky, sticky, and even tricky.

What if there was a guided mindfulness exercise that could help release some of the things we hold on to? 

In Episode 63, Dr. Deb Lindh share's with you an abbreviated version of a technique she has used for years with corporate clients who've struggled to let go and release the things they've held on to.

Look for a Part 2 that will be a bit more like the full version. In the meanwhile, if you like this episode, give us a mention, rating, and share with someone who might find this helpful.

There's a dark side to social media. One that needs to be part of conversations asking society, leaders, families, and individuals:

How do we ensure safety of social media?

How do we protect children from social media dangers?

What can leaders, communities, families, and individuals do to help?

One group, the Organization for Social Media Safety, is taking action. Founded by Ed Peisner and led by CEO Marc Berkman, the Organization for Social Media Safety is a powerhouse paving the way from working with legislation, establishing Jordan's Law, and providing services to help parents, schools, and individuals to make social safe for everyone through a comprehensive approach that includes education, advocacy, and technology development.

The why. Their why. The Organization for Social Media Safety began as a result when in 2016, Ed's son, a then 14-year-old, Jordan Peisner, was viciously assaulted by another teen he did not know while standing outside a restaurant with his friends. Instead of getting help, witnesses and friends of the perpetrator stood and filmed the assault on their phones and then quickly uploaded their videos to social media leaving Jordan laying helpless on the ground with the horrifying footage circulating social media viewed by hundreds of thousands. 

While Jordan slowly recovered from the severe and ultimately lifelong, injuries, Ed  declared to make sure that no other child or family would endure a similar horrific experience. Ed created the Organization for Social Media Safety.
