Does work have you feeling stressed out, or maybe it's politics or something in your personal life? Today, we explore two approaches to understanding and moving past those frustrations. First, we learn a little about how mindfulness meditation can help quiet your mind and bring about a new consciousness. Then, we find out how "traditional" family roles for mothers and fathers might be introducing tension into romantic relationships and parenthood.

Preethaji and Cathi Hanauer will present at this year's TEDxKC, which takes place at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts at 6 p.m. on Friday, August 14. Seats are sold out, but watch party tickets and live-streaming options are available at TEDxKC.org.
