About This Episode:

In our quest to live more vibrant lives, we can't be an island. Sometimes we have to invest a bit more effort in our relationships, especially in our marriages or love relationships. In this episode I share 5 easy ways you can invest in your marriage this week. 

Challenge:

Do one or more of the following this week:

  1. Have a conversation about shame and commit to avoid shaming each other moving foward.
  2. Have a weekly marriage meeting (check out Marriage Meetings for Lasting Love: 30 Minutes a Week to the Relationship You've Always Wanted
  3. Take the Five Love Languages Quiz (bonus if you read the book: The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman)
  4. Go on a weekly date. 
  5. More physical intimacy (helloooo, oxytocin and dopamine. Yes, please!)

Growing up in a rural village in Zimbabwe, Tererai Trent had 4 children by the time she was 18. However, she had a sacred dream to go to the U.S. and earn a Ph.D., an idea which many said was impossible.

About this Episode:

Do you ever feel like everyone is watching and judging, and that you “should” parent a certain way or you’re doing it wrong? Or that when things get scary or stressful you need to control the situation as perfectly as possible? Gina Brodtmann faced the same struggles as her son went through drug treatment.

In this episode, Gina explains what she learned through her struggles, including:

  • The importance of allowing yourself to be vulnerable (and the authentic, deep friendships and connections that will come as a result).
  • Why the most awesome things in life are on the other side of fear.
  • How to stop comparing yourself and your family to other people.
  • The secret to dropping anger and resentment for those hard people in your life.
  • And so much more!

About This Episode:

Have you tried to establish a consistent morning routine, only to "mess up" one morning, causing you to give up completely. In this Happy Bit I give you a more doable strategy.

Your Challenge:

Get a blank journal and write down whatever you do in the morning (don't make it rigid) and then track mood and energy at the end of the day. Start to notice which morning routine items have the greatest impact on mood and energy.
