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.

Tara is also one of our EPIC Health Summit speakers, so make sure you are registered for that by going to this link: https://onthebrightersideofhealth.com/register.

Thanks so much for listening. If you loved this episode, please share it with a friend and leave me a review. XOXO!

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.

I Know You, I Like You and I Have Your Back with Nate Bagley

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.
