On April 28th I was interviewed on the WGN TV Morning News
. I could not have asked for a more perfect interview. My publicist, Lisa Schuble
worked diligently to secure the "Mother's Day Brain Colors" interview. I loved Robin Baumgarten's playful "Orange/Blue" teasing and Larry Potash's "Green/Yellow" demonstration of drawing a fence around himself. Their responses and reactions were perfect examples of each Brain Color. The supervising news producer, Kathryn Janicek, said, "It was so good - I let it go over the allotted time!
Watch the video
and see that the hosts became so engaged in the topic that they wanted to learn more about each other and their Brain Colors.
My workshop schedule continues to keep me rollerblading (metaphorically): An Orland Park Library patron program, two keynote workshops for Illinois Association Risk Management Services IRMS and Illinois Chapter of the Association of Occupational Health Professionals AOHP Symposium, half-day workshops for the Long Island, Manhattan/Queens and Syracuse, NY and Marlton, NJ OSHA Region 2 offices, and a book signing and mini workshop at the University of Chicago Bookstore.

|Happy Mother's Day!
Mother's Day in the U.S. began almost 150 years ago. Anna Jarvis, an Appalachian homemaker, organized a day to raise awareness of poor health conditions in her community, a cause she believed would be best advocated by mothers. She called it "Mother's Work Day."
Mother's Day can be a joyful or sad celebration depending
on your relationship and circumstances. I was blessed with two remarkable mothers! My "Yellow/Blue" mother passed away almost nine years ago, and my "Green/Yellow" mother-in-law passed away last October. I realized that, for the first time in my life, I will have only "loving mother memories" of my mothers when I celebrate with our family on Sunday. I know watching our granddaughter's first ballet recital and enjoying a family dinner with our children and grandchildren will balance the sadness with joy!
Many of us have been blessed with our mothers and other women who have also nurtured, mentored and loved us during different stages of our lives. The following Brain Color Clues will help you recognize and understand why:
1. You are you thrilled or traumatized when someone remarks, "Oh, you are just like your mother."
2. The bond between you and your mother creates comfort or chaos in your life.
3. Being your "Mother's Mini Me" is a blessing or a curse.
Learn how to recognize and respect your mother's personality type and you will Relate Better, Stress Less, Love More, Laugh Often!"
A "Yellow Brain Mother" is dependable, values respectfulness and punctuality. She likes her children to follow "her" rules. She stresses out when her life is disorganized.
A "Blue Brain Mother" values cooperation,but drives you crazy because she cannot stop talking about her problems and emotionally requires a lot of attention.
A "Green Brain Mother" is often a puzzlement. She expresses her high expectations, but never talks about or demonstrates her feelings for you.
An "Orange Brain Mother" is fun to be with, but not someone to count on to be available when you need reliable help or sensible advice.
Green and Yellow Brain Mothers and Children appreciate each other's unemotional attitude and objective approach to life. Blue and Orange Brain Mothers and Children understand each other's devoted attitude and energetic approach to life.
|May Celebrations: Motorcycle Safety, Women's Health Care, Teen Self-Esteem, Gifts From the Garden, Family Wellness, Get Caught Reading, and Smile Month.
A "Sincere Smile" is an involuntary response. You can't fake an authentic smile that comes from inside you. A "Sincere Smile" is created by certain stimuli such as a genuinely happy thought, memory or sound, or from seeing something funny/inspiring, or from touching something that makes you feel good. If such a stimulus affects you in a special way, that smile and sense of well-being happens automatically. It makes you feel good and his healthy for you! In honor all the celebrations this month I have included one of my mother's favorite poems.
It takes but a moment,
and the memory of it lasts forever.
It brings rest to the weary,
Cheer to the discouraged,
Sunshine to the sad, and
Is nature's best antidote for trouble.
A Smile costs nothing, but gives much.
It enriches those who receive,
without making poorer those who give.
None is so rich and mighty
that he or she can be made richer by it
A Smile creates happiness in the home,
Fosters good will in business, and
Is the countersign of friendship.
It can not be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen,
For it is of no value to anyone, until it is given away
Some people are too tired to give you a smile,
Give them one of yours,
For no one needs the Smile more,
Than he who has no more to give.
It takes 43 muscles to Frown, but only 17 muscles to Smile.
