How to Peacefully Coexist with Anxiety and Depression with Tara Bixby

In today’s episode, I’m sitting down with Holistic Therapist, Tara Bixby, to have a frank conversation about anxiety and depression. Tara shares some incredible tips, tricks and strategies to combat and peacefully coexist with anxiety and depression. I recommend listening to this episode with a pen and paper, because we cover a lot and we cover it quickly.

Tara mentions one of her favorite books, which was also helpful to me on the importance of good nutrition called: A Mind of Your Own by Kelly Brogan, MD. For more information and resources, you can find Tara on Instagram @courageously.u. She also has a Facebook group and a YouTube channel by the same name.

2019 Christmas Episode – Jon’s New Wheelchair Story

Merry Christmas On the Brighter Side listeners! Today I’m talking about the true meaning of Christmas and the best experience I’ve ever been a part of. This year, for Christmas, one man received a new wheelchair and a new leg on his 61st Birthday.

I will be forever grateful for my friend Tawsha Stanford, who had the thought of raising money to buy our friend Jon Peters a new wheelchair for Christmas. We put our idea on social media and within hours, we were able to raise enough money to buy Jon’s dream wheelchair.

We have been blessed by Jon for years and forever changed by this experience. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your contribution and participation in this Christmas miracle.

Thank you for supporting On the Brighter Side. I appreciate all of you and am truly grateful for the opportunity to produce this podcast. My message for this episode is to act on those kind thoughts. Hold your family close and enjoy them this holiday season.
