What if I told you that by learning and practicing one skill you could solve 50% or more of the misunderstandings that happen everyday. It’s true! Listening is key to all effective communication. Without the ability to listen effectively, messages are easily misunderstood. Join us at Joyful Living Monday morning at 9 central time as we listen and learn.

Hi! How do you deal with a roommate who doesn’t do any household chores, but complains about how dirty the apartment is. I usually know how to deal with this but I would like to find a better way to handle the situation. Let me know if you have any suggestions!

Hi! I can't help but think how I might fail this paper. I don't know what's up with me. I can't study at all. Like, I can't focus and I'm feeling guilty because I can't focus. I am calculating hours and how can I complete until morning. Literally till the very last minute. It's all theory, and I can't help but think how am I going to remember so much and write.

A recent grad here. Throughout college I struggled with imposter syndrome. I majored in journalism. So many people were using my major to describe my personality. I wish I chosen a different major that wasn’t always putting me on the spot. I always felt like I had to speak up when I didn’t feel like it.

I have 5 weeks left till I move out and go to my dream university. I don’t have any friends so pretty much I’ll be on my own from then on. I need some pointers/advice to be more independent and be less feeling lonely. I want to make new friends but I also want be prepared for the ones who are not interested in being my friend (you know?) I want to have a strong mental health and be unbothered by negativity.

It's a safe bet to say that everyone would like to be happy. No one wants to go through life feeling sad or like they are just getting by. You can't just choose happiness once and call it good. If you want to be happy it is something that you will have to work on. "There is no path to happiness; happiness is the path." Buddha. Join us at Joyful Living on Monday at 9 central as we discuss choosing happiness and some steps to get us on the happiness path.

Dear community, I ask you to call upon any God, Higher Being, The Universe or whatever you believe in! I have only have one more school year to finish my Engineering Degree!!! And I am the last born in my family, which means that my parents are older and are struggling to get enough money to support me. Tomorrow we will hear if my parents can get the loan that they applied for that might just help me to stay in the country and finish my degree. I desperately need some divine intervention of some sort so that this can go through!!! I just want to make them proud!!! Please, on my behalf I ask that you pray, manifest, hope, wish, cross your fingers, meditate or anything that you can do so that this works out for me! This would mean so so so so much to me if it works out! I would become one of the first female engineers in my family and that’s all I want to do!! Please please please spare a thought or a prayer or anything for me today. Thank you for reading this and I hope you have a great day!

I wasted three years of college to get my associates degree. Doing summer class, fall class, spring classes, and repeat. I graduated this year and don’t get me wrong it was worth it but draining. I never got a break. The only break I got was this summer before I went to university. I know that college helps you with your career goals but the thing is I already know what I wanna do.. I just want to live life and work and do art at my own pace without stress. And live with my boyfriend, he and I talk about our future constantly and we are ready to settle down. Being the oldest and wanting to drop out without being a failure or a disappointment is hard. Any advice on what to tell my parents?

September is self care awareness month. Join us at Joyful living as we discuss self care and self esteem. 9 am central time Monday. Your level of self-esteem and your boundaries are closely related. Having personal boundaries outlines to others that you don’t accept some behaviors. You demonstrate that you are in charge of how people treat you. You show that you have responsibility over your life. You matter. Setting boundaries is a huge self-care step and one that demonstrates your self-esteem. Join us and bring your questions, comments and concerns. Everyone welcome.

Shelley D, Wisdo mentor here. Codependency is our topic at Joyful Living this week. Everyone is welcome to join our discussion. Codependency isn’t considered a mental health condition, and experts have yet to outline specific diagnostic criteria for it. There is, however, some general agreement on what codependency usually involves and how self-care can help. Joyful Living(in communities) Monday 9 am central.

This week if you know you might be in stressful situations (relatives, a big dinner with family and friends, uncomfortable conversations, etc.) make a plan to use mindfulness to control the stress. Take the dog for a walk. Go to the bathroom and breathe. Hug some babies.  Find what works for you. Join us at Joyful Living on Monday (11/21) at 9 am central time as we dive a little deeper into mindfulness and learn how to use it to help with stress.

Is mindfulness difficult to learn? Mindfulness helps you feel more in control of thoughts and emotions so you don’t feel out of control. You have to slow down and notice, without judgment. Mindfulness isn't complicated – but it can be challenging. You can get started in an hour Join us at Joyful Living at 9 am central on Monday (11/28) a we take on some of the most frequently asked questions about Mindfulness.

I have a job that I have had for almost the entire time I’ve been in college. I will be finishing college in two semesters. This job has consumed my life. It’s a family-owned swim school that had very poor management that has forced me to take over and manage what they can’t. I spent years working hours past my shift and on my days off wherever they needed me. Then they hired a competent manager and they practically tossed me aside and acted like all my hard work meant nothing. So I kept my head down and kept working but I stopped staying after my shift or working on my days off because I now knew those things weren’t appreciated the way I hoped they would be. Yesterday my boss who has been my boss since I was hired commented that I don’t finish tasks and I am too concerned with getting out when my shift is done than getting out on time. Then today my new manager screamed at me because a big project I was working on got messed up. I am working remotely and I asked her to send it to me so I could figure out what happened and she refused and kept yelling. I hung up on her because she wasn’t having a constructive conversation. Then she called back an hour later apologizing for allowing her anger to get the best of her and I asked her to show me what went wrong only to find I didn’t even make the mistake. A newer employee did but she still insisted it was my fault because I should have double-checked her work. I apologized for that but also explained that I don’t deserve to be blamed because one of her employees messed up a simple task. I feel like I should quit. What do you guys think?
