In today’s episode, I’m sitting down with my friend, Tony Overbay, a licensed marriage and family therapist and utlra marathon runner. We talk about the metaphors we’ve seen in long distance running to marriage. He also talks about setting goals for the new year, using principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. There are so many benefits physical activity can have on our mental and emotional health. Let’s make 2020 our BEST year ever.

Have a wonderful New Year’s and join us next week (year) for a discussion with Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife about New Year’s Resolutions.
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.
In today’s episode, I sit down with my friend Jamee Andelin. We interviewed each other about all things pertaining to score keeping in marriage, sex and intimacy and overcoming and living with our differences. This episode is fun and light hearted, but we discuss extremely common issues that arise in marriage.
I know you are going to love this episode. Remember that sharing is caring, so if you do love it, make sure you share it with a friend who would love it too.

This week’s episode with Nate Bagley is one of my all-time favorites! He’s an experienced marriage researcher, interviewing some of the greats, such as John and Julie Gottman, Gary Chapman and Sue Johnson.
He teaches us his framework for building a strong foundation of friendship within your marriage, so you are able to have hard conversations and withstand conflict. His pillars of friendship include the framework of I know you, I like you and I have your back.
You will love the simplicity and ease with which he explains these three pillars and the way he uses experiences from his own life to illustrate these concepts beautifully. He talks about an experiment he did with his wife in his first year of marriage to find out her love language and we made a challenge out of it. Whether you have been married for 3 days or 30 years, it’s such a boost to any relationship to know your spouse’s love language.
