    Just Another Mindful Monday -Building Resilience During Covid

    22/02/2021 Duración: 31min

    Hi there, I'm Judy Croon. Welcome to another Episode of Laugh Long and Prosper – Shelf Help with a dash of humour when appropriate. I believe that humour is one of our best coping mechanisms-especially when we are facing stress and unknown times like Covid. Today is Monday. That’s means it’s time for 'Just Another Mindful Monday'. On the phone with me today is Mindfulness Coach Cara Coulson from Pearl Mindfulness. Cara works out of the GTA She teaches at Durham College and she works with a group called Psychology For Growth. This means that most of Cara’s services are covered under insurance plans – which is a big help for a lot of folks. As we deal with Covid for over a year now, lots of people are struggling. Cara wrote a paper recently, called 'Coaching to Build Resiliency'. It's very helpful and hopeful! We talk about it here. Check it out. To reach Cara, you can go to her website www.PearlMindfulness.net or email her: PearlMindfulnessQ@gmail.com If you like to catch up on all of our Laugh Long and

    Hi there, I'm Judy Croon - Canada's Keynote Humourist. Welcome to 'Laugh Long and Prosper'. Today is Monday - that means it's time for another episode of 'Just Another Mindful Monday'. As kids returned to school recently, (during Covid) everyone is stressed out. What is the right thing to do? For perspective and hope, I wanted to know what it was like to go to school during other stressful times in history- like the Second World War. Covid is serious. We have been dealing with it over a year. I can't imagine what it must be like to deal with something for over five years. For a little bit of perspective and hope and maybe even some much needed humour, I turned to a veteran of the Second World War- my father, Harry. My dad grew up in Deventer, a small Dutch town not far from the German border. Many times, Deventer was caught in between the Allies and the Germans .Talk about stressful times. For the most part, most kids still went to school. Here is just one of those stories. For more information

    Hi there, I'm Judy Croon - Canada's Keynote Humourist. Welcome to 'Laugh Long and Prosper' Shelf Help with a Smile. Stress Busters with a Smirk. Today is Monday which means it's time for Just Another Mindful Monday. I recently read two books; 'The Year of Living Danishly' and 'The little book of Hygge.' According to a UN study every year, Denmark is regularly listed as one of the happiest places in the world ( Canada is usually in the top ten, as well) but what makes Denmark unique is something that they embrace called 'Hygge'. I thought with Covid and all the other stresses that have been going on as a result of it, what better time to talk to someone from Denmark about this incredible super power that we might be able to draw from? Please welcome my Danish friend -Heidi Petersen. If you have any further questions about Hygge, please feel free to reach Heidi: Heidi.Petersen2012@gmail.com For more information about Laugh Long and Prosper, Judy's keynotes or comedy workshops, go to www.JudyCroon.com

You get the point. So let's get Started. I don’t know what was scarier in 2020…Donald Trump or Covid. Certainly, both of them have had me cowering in my house for a few months at the beginning of the year. But then I felt inspired by Joe Biden: the little engine that could. Slowly but surely, his campaign started to gain traction throughout the year and lo and behold, he and Kamala Harris won the US Election. I felt inspired by Joe Biden for many reasons. His old-school talk about having ‘steel in your spine’ made me want to strike a Rosie the Riveter pose and start saving kittens out of trees. I was also inspired by ‘The Joe Biden Jog’. You know the jog -the five or six little steps that Joe does just as he’s about to take the podium. I now do the ‘Joe Biden Jog’ myself whenever I’m on one of my slow daily walks and I thin

After all, it's the 'Age of Aquarius' - brought on by a Saturn/ Jupiter alignment. For those of you who felt like your life hit a pothole in 2020 and had your alignment completely thrown off – have no fear. Saturn, Jupiter and Canadian Tire are here. Psychic Nikki says this is going to be great time for our planet. We are going to have an ocean make-over as we start to really clean up our blue marble. Nothing like a little global pandemic to scare us into action. Better late than never though, right? Psychic Nikki says it may take a while so we have to be patient. We will probably still be wearing masks and Zooming in slippers until the fall but there is a big payoff in 2022. That’s when she says it wi

    The Gift of Humour 2020. Let’s face it. It’s been a challenging year. Covid has forced us to mask up, distance and sanitize our hands until they are raw. We’ve had to isolate, bubble and some of us have had to learn so much new technology, we could probably talk Apollo 13 down. We’ve faced more ZOOM meetings that we care to think about. Thank goodness for the front line and essential workers who have done everything to keep the rest of us safe. Without them, we would be lost -or worse. Compared to other global catastrophes - war, earthquakes, tsunamis- Covid asked the majority of us to do one thing: stay home. Watching Netflix is not a hardship. It has brought us gems like the latest season of the Crown, and of course, the Queen’s Gambit. If you haven’t seen The Queen’s Gambit, may I say it has renewed my passion for tranquilizers. I mean chess. I’m not good at chess. I have to take a nap after four moves, but this mini-series has inspired me to become a better player as well as, step up my wardrobe g

    Is the world going to end? I know…not exactly the most hilarious, side- splitting way to open a conversation or a comedy show, for that matter. Ah, remember the good old days when we used to do comedy shows??? Relax, Chicken Little. I bring some good news, even as I write this after a see-saw US election that still hasn’t been completely resolved. This good news comes in the form of two amazing books that coaxed me out from underneath my comforter and back into the real world. Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism and Progress by Canadian psychologist Steven Pinker, and Factfulness: Ten Reasons We’re Wrong About The World – And Why Things Are Better Than You Think by Swedish physician and statistician Hans Rosling. Both books are really uplifting and perfect for the challenging times that we are going through. Maybe it’s all fake news? I don’t think so. These books are based upon facts. Remember when we used to care about facts? Also, each book comes with a heavy hitter list of end

    Humankind by Rutger Bregman: Part Two A few more examples to show you just how awesome humans really are. Covid, the economy, the un-presidential debate, Tiger King’s Carole Baskin competing on Dancing With The Stars - there is a certainly a lot of frightening news lately. Are things just getting worse?? Last month, I reviewed the book Humankind by Rutger Bregman. It gave me hope. Bregman provided examples throughout history that proved the awesomeness of humans in times of distress. If you’ve got six and a half months of Zoom, mask and sanitizer burn-out, perhaps a few more of the author’s stories will help lift your spirits. During grade school, you were probably asked to read William Golding’s Lord of The Flies. It is the story about a group of boys stranded on an island. Over a period of time, they end up turning on each other and supposedly displaying the worst of mankind. Bregman actually found a real-life Lord of the Flies example in 1966. Six schoolboys from the island of Tonga stole a boat

    Space Odyssey 2020: Covid, technology and virtual presentations. Admit it. How many of you got dragged into the virtual presentation world, kicking and screaming? How many of you had nightmares of sweat dripping down your forehead one minute before the green light came on in front of a virtual roomful of clients? How many of you felt like Dave from Space Odyssey 2001? “HAL, open the pod bay doors!!” “I’m sorry Judy, I’m afraid I can’t do that.” “All right, HAL. I’ll go in through the emergency airlock.” “Without your space helmet, Judy, you’re going to find that rather difficult.” Okay, so maybe this was my imagination going overboard. For the past few years, I have been encouraged by friends and clients to do more video presentations. As a comedian and motivational speaker, I have always enjoyed live presentations and conferences. In the past, I had been speaking and coaching virtually with some of my clients but then Covid hit. The game changed overnight. There wasn’t an option to do conferences

    Keep Calm And Carry On in the Face of Covid

    29/08/2020 Duración: 03min

    Recently, I read a terrific book – Humankind by Rutger Bregman. Bregman asked, ‘What did Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt have in common?’ They all read a book called The Psychology of the Masses by French author Gustave Le Bon. Le Bon’s main premise is that when all hell breaks loose, humans turn into barbarians. We turn on each other. Chaos is created and as a result, an enemy’s attack is made easier. The flames of fear are good for the oppressor. Though this ‘survival- of- the- fittest’ mentality may be the case for a small percentage of people, Bregman gives numerous examples throughout history that prove the contrary. His stories and statistics prove that overall, the kids are alright – humans are pretty darn amazing. Bregman provides the example of the bombing of England during the second World War. In 1940, Hitler sent 348 Luftwaffe bombers to London. He probably hoped panic and chaos would make the English more vulnerable and easier to overthrow. British authorities wo
