The MRL Morning Show

Weekdays 6:00AM-10:00AM

If you’re fortunate to not have to work the day after Thanksgiving (or after any other night of heavy drinking), just lounge in bed or on the couch and sleep/rest it off.  The human body has the ability to heal itself when it’s at rest.  #Science

Everyone has to deal with a crisis in our lives, but who helps us makes all the difference. I recently saw a tweet from my producer, Nicole, that made me concerned:

I hate to hear that my friend hit the bottom again. She’s such a bright, amazing person, and I only want the best for her. Sometimes I feel like I can’t help or if I do try, I’m doing it all wrong. I wanted to not fix her issues, but just know that I’m here for her. So I googled and found these ways to help a friend:

  • Offer to hang out
  • Be there and listen
  • Save advice for later
  • Validate their feelings
  • Run errands for them
  • Ask how you can help
  • Keep checking in
  • Ask open ended questions
