#67 (2/22/21) Emotions, Feelings, and the Power of Acceptance Laurie & Matt share the 7th list they've started curating in their Sourcebook, a journal of ideas, concepts, and information that defines who they are and what their life stands for. We each have a Sourcebook, and you either write and live your own, or allow it to be written for you.
This week they explore the sources of negative emotions that can turn a good day upside down, and as teachers and parents of teens, we're surrounded by a never ending supply of challenging situations and people. While emotions are natural, how they manifest as feelings and where we allow them to take us is a little more under our control than we often care to admit. One word, one willful choice may be the key to diffusing so much of the negative that spoils a good moment.
#66 (2/15/21) Responsibilities, Relationships, and the Maintenance of Our Lives Laurie & Matt share the 6th list they've started curating in their Sourcebook, a journal of ideas, concepts, and information that defines who they are and what their life stands for. We each have a Sourcebook, and you either write and live your own, or allow it to be written for you.
Becoming an adult is the act of becoming responsible. We accumulate items, relationships, and responsibilities that we need to maintain in order to keep them healthy, operating properly, and from costing us unnecessarily if we fail in our duties to maintain them. It can seem overwhelming to consider everything we're supposed to care for ON TOP OF the work we do with our teens, but this important process can help reduce stress, increase appreciation, and save us, financially and otherwise.
We've been guests on other podcasts a couple times, and in fact our first ever experience with podcasting was as guests on the very popular Intermittent Fasting Stories with Gin Stephens (episode #68), where we talked about our foray into and continuing experience with, you guessed it, intermittent fasting.
We also got together with our new best friends Kyle & Ben on their podcast, The BeerEDU Podcast (episode #91), where we talked about, you guessed it again, beer and education.
