The fam is back! Giselle is home and finally has a snow scraper. We broke down our biggest hidden fear (based on zodiac signs of course), and it's not the upcoming snow. Ben and Dana, both cancers, don't like leaving their houses. Giselle, a leo, has a fear of being ignored, true. Intern Anna has to marry rich to avoid her fear of financial insecurity. Couldn't have nailed it any more than that!
6:15 Giving Tuesday
So we've got Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday and now Giving Tuesday. Doesn't that seem a little backwards? In hopes that society has a little spare money to give on top of spending $10-15 on every co-worker. Ben's Cyber Monday didn't live up to the expectation, but he will just be waiting until December 23rd to finish his shopping anyways.
6:30 Boost Your Happiness
We don't want to get caught in the winter blues around here and we also want to be cheery around the holiday season, so we asked "What are your best ways to boost happiness?" Try meditation, it's a little tough to get started but there are a lot of apps to help you out! Ben tries out some random acts of kindness, you never know what a smile and "hello" can mean to people. Eat a good breakfast (tacos anyone?) and do one thing to reach your goals every day. Giselle likes to take moments of gratitude before coming to work. If all else fails, puppies for everyone!
6:50 The Trend
A fatal plane crash holding a Brazilian soccer team, officials, and journalists has gone down in Brazil. Paisley Park announced they will be hosting a four day long concert in honor of Prince's death in April. The Twins are bringing back some familiar faces for their management team in the upcoming season including Torii Hunter.
7:15 Why Love Is Dead
We've said it before, Ben and Anna are single, Dana is happily married and Giselle is in love. Sometimes swiping right isn't good enough, and we want to have someone to go on vacation with or just simply hang out with. We're a goal driven society and believe that perfection is attainable (thank you Disney). The best thing to remember is that everyone can relate to being single or being in a relationship, and either loving it or hating it. So hang in there you're not alone, most love is just dead.
7:30 $1000 Minute
Sofia played $1000 Minute and for a minute's worth, took home $80. She passed on a couple, but didn't get any wrong. Play with us everyday around 7:30am.
8:15 Get To Know
Did you know about Dominick the Christmas Donkey!? There are some real classic holiday songs we counted down on Get To Know this morning!
8:30 About that holiday weight...
Everything starts on a Monday, so we've already given up on going back to the gym this week. Thanksgiving really kicked off the weight gain, and we aren't sure if we'll be back on track until January. Every day is the last donut day, and we need to find a little bit of motivation like the "fun" kale smoothies from Eli. Who doesn't love smoothies, am I right?
9:50 Rap Up
Don't forget the Daily Rap Up with Chaz Kangas (@chazraps) who freestyles a secret word and recaps everything we talked about previously in the show.
