Every week, Express Yourself!â¢ will bring you a stimulating program based on a chapter from our award winning book Be the Star You Are!Â® for Teens.
âSometimes you have to get knocked down lower than you have ever been, to stand up taller than you ever were.â
Hosts Asya Gonzalez and Brigitte Jia welcome Health Rap Reporter, Alex Pawlakos and Book Smart Reporter, Maria Wong as well as special guest Dr. Kyra Mesich to talk about survival.
Alex focuses on the health benefits of happiness, meditation, humor, support of friends, walking in nature, and prayer as part of survival strategies. Patients that cope the best with illness are those who learn to take control of their lives and find the joys that still exist in their lives. After receiving her doctoral degree, Kyra Mesich, PsyD went on a quest to understand sensitivity from a truly holistic perspective leading her to study extensively in the field of integrative health. She is the author of The Strength of Sensitivity. She talks about surviving sensitivity to be empathetic through holistic, intuitive healing, and emphasizes the importance of listening to your inner voice.
Maria shares her favorite summer read, Lily Kingâs novel, Euphoria, which primarily focuses on the struggle to survive by three anthropologists in the 1930âs in Papua New Guinea. Â The book is suited for adults and mature teenagers ranging from 14-18 as it covers gruesome topics including brute violence and cannibalism. The standard dictionary definition of survival is the state or fact of continuing to live or exist, typically in spite of an accident, ordeal, or difficult circumstances. Maria believes that survival includes the ability to bounce back and learn something from your experiences. Trust your gut. Be a survivor.
Guest Bio: Kyra Mesich, PsyD earned a doctoral degree in clinical psychology in 1995. A quest to understand sensitivity from a truly holistic perspective led her to study extensively in the field of integrative health and writeÂ The Strength of Sensitivity. Her holistic training includes flower essence therapy, hypnotherapy, yoga, and meditation. Dr Kyra didn’t know she would end up dedicating her lifelong career to empowering sensitive people, but it has been more rewarding than anything else she could imagine doing.
