Teens are experiencing record amounts of stress, and sleep can have a LOT to do with it. Please welcome to our show, Lisa L. Lewis, author, “The Sleep Deprived Teen,” an inside look at why our teenagers are so tired, and how parents and schools can help teens thrive.

We’ll be discussing the science of why sleep matters; how sleep affects mental health, academics, and athletic performance; we’ll talk about gender and sleep; technology and sleep, and much more.

The question is, how do teens get more sleep? Particularly when their bodies want to get to sleep later, and schools start early. We talk about all of that and more. It’s an important discussion, not just for teens, but parents, educators, and anyone interested in learning about what happens when we sleep and how we sort through our thoughts.

Currently, children worldwide are exposed to enormous stress that many adults find too challenging to process. The mission of the Foundation is to help children develop the skills to nurture wellness from within to make solid choices for themselves. She hopes to incorporate this into schools, too.

Her mindfulness programs are designed to help young people regulate emotions, manage stress, and any other challenges they may be facing.

Nico Juber, Award-winning Composer

Please welcome to our show Nico Juber, award-winning composer and musical theater writer recently highlighted on the “2023 Women to Watch on Broadway” list, after making her Off-Broadway debut with “MILLENNIALS ARE KILLING MUSICALS,” which was an astounding success.

And Nico is on the move. Her musical WINNER, co-written with Joe Barros, is set to debut in the West End as part of The London Summer Music Theatre Academy later this summer. And she’s only just getting started.

Nico comes from a true legendary background. Her dad, Laurence Juber, is a musician whose work includes playing in the band, #Wings (yes, she’s met Paul McCartney, my personal idol), and her mom, Hope, an accomplished writer and actress whom I’ve had on my show. Nico’s grandfather, who is Hope’s dad, was Sherwood Schwartz, the creator of so many incredible shows from The Brady Bunch to Gillian’s Island. Let’s just say she’s learned from the best.

But it took some time for Nico to flourish, because cancer got in her way (she’s recovered), and she welcomed two children. But once got behind the piano again, she found her voice. She tells us about that, and also the nonprofit she created for cancer survivors called Thrive/Survive Los Angeles.

There’s a LOT to talk about, including the need for more women in leadership roles in theater, TV, and film. Please tune in to #DeborahKobyltLIVE on all video and audio podcast platforms, and invite your friends, too. I’m your host, #DeborahZaraKobylt. And a BIG shout out to my friends at the BRA Network, including Carry, Catherine, and Debra, who introduced me to Nico.

Happiness has a different meaning for all of us, and Dr. Hammer first talks about GAIN – Gratitude, Acceptance, Intention, Non-Judgement, and how to begin each day with this in mind. It might sound cliche, but it’s not. Being grateful, meditating, sleeping, exercise, and setting aside time each day to do it, matters. It’s about setting a routine and sticking with it, and we talk about how to get motivated to do that. And there’s more.
