Grade Level:
7 - 12
Loretta LaRoche of The Joy of Stress is back, and begging the question, How Serious Is This? It's an insatiably humorous special that puts life in perspective and provides simple rules to live by. Getting down to the nitty-gritty, Loretta examines the irrational and exaggerated patterns of thinking that drive us all nuts: The Awfulizer and Catastrophizer, the individual with an incessant need to blow lfe's smallest events out of proportion; the Mind Reader who has a perceived ability to predict suffering -- and of course, there's always the Baggage Handler, who carries around the ball and chain of life's past events. Loretta also helps us find the path to "the joy of living." Letting loose, viewers will move and a-groove through some practical exercises - everything from how to breathe "the right way" -- to exaggeration therapy, a technique for examining life's worries and seeing how quickly they can be moved from the sublime to the ridiculous. Loretta LaRoche works with the Mind Body Medical Institute, which is affiliated with CareGroup and Harvard Medical Schools. She is also a nationallly recognized speaker on stress management.
