||CleanEp 28: SLPs no more stress please||Deb and Maria decided not to consume alcohol since they do not recommend drinking while stressed. They both agreed that this time of the year can be very hectic. Deb described that stress is when the sympathetic nervous system or that "fight or flight" response kicks in. This entails an increase in blood pressure, slow down of digestion, increased heart rate and rapid thinking. This is called automatic thinking. However, intentional thinking is when the brain can problem solve and think of ways to change the outcome or provide a solution. They went on to a segment called "Cool as a cucumber or Super Stressed". Deb and Maria gave scenarios and stated if they would find themselves cool as a cucumber or super stressed. They also gave strategies or problem solving tips for each scenario. Turns out both Deb and Maria would remain cool if they saw blood or had a drink spilled on them. Deb and Maria also gave realistic ideas for relieving stress: exercise, aromatherapy, taking naps, reading books, listening to music and drawing. At their halfway point they reminded listeners to follow them on Instagram @slps_wine_and_cheese_pod and check out their Patreon page! Also, they still have blah blah blah blah shirts left! Email us at: email@example.com to place your order. Maria discussed the importance of nature and reducing stress from the book "the Nature Fix: Why nature makes us happier, healthier and more creative" by Florence Williams. The book talked about how important smells are to humans, so bring on the aromatherapy! Also, how when humans are exposed to nature videos they're heart rate dropped but instantly shot up when they heard a motor vehicle sound. Deb compared this sound to the email alerts she receives. Maria recommended silencing your phone after 9pm. All in all Deb and Maria agreed that stress management is important and critical for living your best life. For their Tips & Trick segment, Maria recommended trying boxed breathing in therapy sessions. Deb recommended different aromatherapy scents to help inspire your clients! Deb ended with a quote "Zen spirituality is not thinking about God while peeling potatoes. Zen spirituality is just to peel the potatoes.”||12/18/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||CleanEp 4: Assess the situation||Maria and Deb drank Robert Mondavi Pinot Noir California 2015 from the Private Selection. The even-bodied Pinot Noir had the perfect amount of fruitiness and acidity. We paired the wine with feta cheese. The saltiness of the feta enhanced the sweetness in the wine. Each brought out the best in each other. Deborah and Maria went on to disucss the different types of assessments and further broke it down by client's age. Deborah discussed strategies to elicit a spontaneous sample. Maria explained some pros and cons of formal assessments across ages. #SLPSwineandcheese "Fun Friday on 5/25".
