Ice-cream van nostalgia12 November 2020 | 4 Minute Listen
Have you ever wondered about the origins of the ice-cream van jingle? The iconic track triggers memories of sprinting outside on a hot summers day and queuing along with the neighbours for your ice-cream lolly or soft-serve fix. Oh and the rush! If you took too long getting money from mom or dad, the truck had moved on to the next street. EB Inglis decided to do some digging when he heard the ice-cream van doing rounds in his neighbourhood. "It took me back to the time I spent time at my grandparents' place in Factreton and the excitement caused by the ice-cream truck," "You hear the tune in the distance, and you beg your folks for a R1.50 so you can buy a soft serve on a hot day." The song behind our childhood memories is called 'Music Box Dancer'. It was recorded in the seventies by Canadian musician Frank Mills. It did pretty well on the charts at the time, reaching number 3 on both the US Billboard Hot 100 chart on the Canadian Adult Contemporary chart. Fun fact: The tune is playing on the ice cream van heard in the background during part 1 of Kill Bill! Spend your lunchtime with the quintessential ‘guy-next-door’, EB Inglis. Tune in Mondays to Fridays, 12- 3PM

Clinical Psychologist shares 3 ways to manage stress04 November 2020 | 2 Minute Listen
Everybody has stress, and while some stress is good for us, too much can trigger debilitating illnesses. Stress Awareness Day - the first Wednesday of November - is a time to be aware of the stress in our lives and how it affects us. EB Inglis called on Dr David Rosenstein, a Clinical Psychologist based at the Vincent Pallotti Hospital, for three tips on how to manage stress. Stress can overwhelm us so be wary of withdrawing and reducing your activities. Dr Rosenstein suggests applying behavioural activation through regular exercise. Self-compassion, when we're stressed it often brings out the worst in ourselves - we can be our own worst enemies. Gratitude journaling is a good way to practice self-compassion. Task manage appropriately. When we're stressed we tend to take on too much and we haven't likely prioritised things in our lives correctly. Adequately planning your day, do not over plan and prioritise your tasks.
