I am fully aware that I am susceptible to seasonal depression disorder this time of year, and, when life feels like a LOT, I like to look for actionable items to shift my perspective. One way I do this is to look for inspirational people who are spreading positivity and hope. We invited Carlos on our podcast (link) this week to learn more about how we can be better at this human thing. In Carlos’ new book, How To Human, he talks extensively about how to embrace being fully human, and not just with ourselves, but in relationship with other humans. One thing that really stuck out to me from our discussion is the analogy of 1 degree. Carlos describes a ship that is set only 1 degree off course, but over time, this seemingly small change can lead the ship off course by MILES. He says it’s the same way with people these days. Events of the past several years have set us as humans off course a bit and we need to get ourselves back on track. You can find out more about Carlos Whittaker here: https://www.carloswhittaker.com/ Tell us what you like, ask a question, or just say hi.

As someone who struggles with anxiety and depression where positivity is a conscious choice, I get a little skeptical about any advice on how to "magically be happier." This week, Penn was VERY excited to talk to our guest, while I had some hard questions. We had a great discussion with Neil Pasricha, a New York Times bestselling author of seven books, including his latest book Our Book of Awesome, who helped us understand how gratitude practices can help move the needle into a better outlook on life. In our discussion, I found out Neil and I had a lot more in common that I thought. (Stick around until the end for an actual blueprint for how to begin to put this into practice!)

We May Be A Mismatch

We May Be A Mismatch

2023-01-1001:03:222

What a journey this podcast took us on. As you know, the new year always brings new hopes and dreams for me (Kim) and I will shout them from the rooftops. (If you don't put your dreams into the universe, how will it happen?!) Penn is the polar opposite. He has hopes and dreams, but prefers to keep them to himself as to not be a burden. We could not be more mismatched in this department (and I think it drives us both a little crazy.) Which one is more like you? Please tell us. Tell us what you like, ask a question, or just say hi.

In our mid-40s, we knew we’d be some of the older competitors on The Amazing Race - a famously grueling show in which teams of two travel the globe conquering physical (and sometimes mental and emotional) challenges. We wanted to be as ready as possible and in the next few weeks we’re going to be sharing some of our favorite workouts that can be done in a gym or at home. Even if you aren’t training for a grueling reality competition, these movements will help you feel more equipped to handle the challenges of everyday life. We interviewed Taylor Pope, DPT, FDNP, Owner of Chain Effect on this week's podcast to launch this blog series and here’s the headline: YOU CAN GET STRONGER AS YOU AGE. Statistically, yes, we’re at a disadvantage to gain strength and improve athletic performance with every time we circle the sun but IT CAN BE DONE. The team at Chain Effect crafted workouts that helped us get ready for every situation the Race threw at us. And now Chain Effect is sharing these workouts with you! Tell us what you like, ask a question, or just say hi. Call 323-364-3929. Your support means the world to us.

As a new mom, I was secretly dreading the time when my kids were older and Christmas would somehow feel less special when the “magic” wore off. Well, it turns out, there’s lots and lots of things that make this time with teens so incredibly special and it’s with great relief, I can report that it may feel even more special because they get a hand in how we shape our family traditions. This week Penn and I talk about what we love about our teens, and we get to hear from some of you too! This is our last podcast of 2022 and it's been a crazy year. We wish you a happy holiday and want you to know how grateful we are for all of you. See you in 2023! Tell us what you like, ask a question, or just say hi. Call 323-364-3929.

In this week’s podcast, Kim and I “plogged” the week surrounding my eyelid surgery, and I did a little soul searching about my own self-image and the male tendency to shy away from self-image issues. You also get to hear what I am like on valium. (Which I thought was pretty funny.) Plus, you can hear about all of the incredibly sweet things Kim did to care for me throughout the week.Tell us what you like, ask a question, or just say hi. Call 323-364-3929.

While we typically only hear the dreadful things about menopause, I’m happy to report that there are actually silver linings to this stage of life. Lately I’ve been feeling a little bit like I’m going crazy. My anxiety has been elevated and I’ve been on edge. Maybe that’s why when I saw Dr. Kourtney speaking on TikTok, her words about hormones struck me. Could this be what’s making me feel like this? We invited Dr. Kourtney Sims, M.D. to join our podcast to educate us, and, after our discussion, Penn and I agreed that anyone that is a woman or lives with a woman would benefit from hearing this information. While some symptoms of menopause are less than desirable, Dr. Kourtney explains that we don’t need to think of it as something that we must suffer through. What did you think of our discussion?

Holiday Marriage Contract

Holiday Marriage Contract

2022-11-2901:04:50

We've talked in the past and in our book about secret contracts you have in relationships (i.e. - who always empties the dishwasher, who always makes the meal plan...) but it got us thinking... what about the holidays? We've always said "mature people ask for what they want." So this week we took those two ideas: talking about what we need for the holidays and making an agreement on who does what. Only this time, it's not a secret. Fair warning, there are a few tears but hopefully hearing our conversation helps someone. Tell us what you like, ask a question, or just say hi. Call 323-364-3929.

I love talking to a Mom... especially one who is kicking as much butt as Leigh Waters. Leigh Waters was a practicing attorney a few short years ago, who is now one of the top female Pickleball players in the world. More over, her 15-year-old daughter is now ranked #1 in the sport. The mother-daughter duo even play doubles together. We talk to Leigh about how she started in pickleball, her daughter's rise in the sport, and her advice for us. Currently, I need something to get obsessed over, and I think it's pickleball. Follow Leigh Waters on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/waters_pb/Follow their tour: https://www.ppatour.com/Tell us what you like, ask a question, or just say hi.

With Thanksgiving around the corner, I have been thinking about thankfulness and gratitude. On today’s podcast episode, we spoke with Dr. Robert Emmons who is the leading researcher on gratitude. His work focuses on the psychology of gratitude and joy as they relate to human flourishing and well-being. It even came up that gratitude (when done properly) can turn the dial down on anxiety. We walked away from our conversation with Dr. Emmons feeling (no surprise here) very grateful. We hope you do too. If you want more help on your path to being grateful, Dr. Emmons has a book, The Little Book Of Gratitude, which I think would be a great stocking stuffer... and Penn thinks would be a very helpful bathroom book.

Couldn't we all benefit from a little political therapy? Originally, I wasn't even sure if this episode would be a good idea. Some political issues have been very upsetting to me (as they have been to a lot of people) but speaking to Sarah Stewart Holland and Beth Silvers from the podcast, Pantsuit Politics, calmed my nerves. If you're feeling anxious about political conversations or politics in general, I hope you feel better having listened to this. I know I do.

Now that my daughter is in Driver’s Ed, she likes to remind me when I’m not completely following the rules of the road. So much so that the other day I reminded her how long I’ve been driving. You guys, I’ve been driving for over 30 YEARS. (How did that happen?) To combat this, we got nostalgic and played some fun games to remind us of our youth. Personally, I was reminded that I hate it when I don’t know the answer to something. Especially in a game. Play along with us and see how many you can get right! (Sidenote - Our game is live!

In honor of Penn's birthday, we decided to ask the question: What would 10-year-old Penn think of his life now? It’s easy to get caught up in the busyness of life and sometimes forget to really appreciate what you’ve accomplished. I know there’s a lot of hard things in life that really suck, but sometimes you look back and are actually grateful in some way for hard things you’ve been through that led you to where you are today.

What’s that emotion that’s excited but a little nervous? Nervcited? Well, I’m nervcited because our new game Family Faceoff has just launched into the universe (and we asked you listeners to call-in for this episode to play it with us!) Family Faceoff is officially available for pre-sale now and will ship in 3 weeks. We made Family Faceoff, becuase we are game people. A rainy day, vacation, or even just 20 minutes after dinner on a school night. Penn and I wanted to create a game that would get our very active kids out of their seats and in situations where they could be competitive with the whole family, no matter their age. Basically if charades, karaoke, and a scavenger hunt had a baby, that would be Family Faceoff. So many people have worked so hard to bring this to life in its current form. Big thanks to our Holderness Family team and the team over at Watch Ya' Mouth who helped us make this a reality.

On this week’s podcast, I walked Penn through my month of mental health discovery, what worked, and what has room for improvement. The more we talked, the more insight Penn had on how my mind works. Speaking of how minds work, it should come as no surprise that we somehow detoured to a story of Penn performing the Heimlich maneuver on our friend (she is fine). We learned that, in a crisis, Penn will be the first to perform a life saving technique, and I’ll be the one bringing you a high-quality glass of water. I think we balance each other well. Bonus: We also give a sneak peek of next week’s podcast episode and how you might be able to join us on the show.

: Penn, Kim, Lola, and Penn Charles Holderness create original music, parodies, and Vlogs for YouTube and Facebook to poke fun of themselves and celebrate the absurdity in circumstances most families face in their day to day life. They published "Christmas Jammies" in December 2013 and life hasn't been the same. Since then, their popular parodies, "All About That Baste", "Baby Got Class," and original music "Snow Day" have received national news coverage. Penn, the Dad, took a chance and left his job as a news anchor to join his wife Kim, the Mom, at their video production and digital marketing company, Greenroom Communications, LLC.

In recent years, I often have shied away from parenting podcasts and books because the older our kids get, the more I feel like they're "cooked." For better or worse, the damage of my parenting has been done. That is, until I started parenting coaching with our friend Dr. Hope Seidel. Through our sessions, we've reframed the way I parent for the better starting with the basis of our unique family values. (In our discussion too you will hear how many themes are similar to our marriage book on communication. Apparently, we've had some parenting strategies all along.) Do you know your family values?Learn more about Dr. Hope Seidel and subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to hear about our new game!Tell us what you like, ask a question, or just say hi.

Let me start by saying I have the best wife on the planet. Let me also say that even though Kim and I wrote a book about marriage (and went to marriage counseling) we are still passengers on this flight. We are still learning. The reason I’m telling you this is because we opened our podcast this week fresh off a fight. Tears and all. I went on a really fun guy’s trip recently, and I forgot to thank my wife for handling all the things while I was gone for 5 days. She addressed it and initially I didn't react well. I was wrong. I asked Kim if we should redo the show, and not post this week. But we both decided that we wanted to be real. (This is real stuff other couples go through, right?) While our personal life took a front seat on this week’s podcast, we did manage to answer one of your questions: “What does ‘Doing the best I can’ really mean?” It’s a phrase that embodies both ends of the spectrum. Listen for more on our explanation. Also here is the "Doing The Best I Can" origin story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ht6_6re0hlY. Tell us what you like, ask a question, or just say hi.

ADHD is a spectrum neurodiversity, which means that everyone has at least just a little of it. Because ADHD is Penn's superpower, he gives his best tips to achieve hyperfocus, aka concentration nirvana, in this week's podcast. Hyperfocus means you can tune out everything around you, completely freeze time and space (well, in your mind) and focus on one single task. (Sounds pretty great, right?)When you finally achieve hyperfocus, it feels like time is standing still. Penn often forgets what time it is, or to have lunch, but he achieves being in the zone. Bonus: You get to hear Kim and I have a full circle moment in real-time. Tell us if these tips work for you!

Now that the kids are back in school, I’ve decided to use September to focus on my own mental health. I’ve talked openly about how I’ve battled anxiety and depression. I know what it takes for me to feel better, now I just have to do it. On this week's podcast I take Penn (and YOU!) along for the ride as I explore meditation techniques with Susan Lee of Body & Brain. Susan helped us with a very approachable and easy way to meditate that instantly lowered our blood pressure. She reminded us that thinking about the past can bring depression, while thinking about the future can bring anxiety. That's why it's so important to meditate to be in the present. You can find more about the type of meditation Susan leads here and you can follow my full 30 day mental health journey here. **DISCLAIMER: Please do not meditate while driving.**Tell us what you like, ask a question, or just say hi.

I love you kim. I totally understand what your saying. I have a great marriage and a healthy child, but I am allowed to have depression and anxiety. This episode helped me be so much.

minute 26 - Kim said, “the life of a college athlete is not one i would want” and Penn agreed. i couldn’t disagree more. i was a collegiate tennis player and it was the BEST experience. ive said that so many times to so many people.

Great stuff! I am divorced and wish I knew this years ago! My Ex and I still need to work together through joint custody. Do you guys ever have divorce experts on for those in my situation?

I agree with the virtual learning sentiment. it had Pros and it had Cons. We are definitely for technology. (my husband is a computer programmer.) But my 11yr old son became too dependent on the virtual interactions...partly because the kids on our street their families did not believe in COVID-19, and so they let their kids play with each other, no vaccinations, no precautions - nothing like that. My son stopped playing outside because he was being teased by the other boys, so his world became the online community, which at first was really great, but now I'm seeing that he's going to have a harder time adjusting back to in-person real world when he goes to middle school in the fall. We're going to try and do our best to help him transition back, but uggh!

My grandpa just died in his alzheimers care facility. They saw him declining and were going to let his wife take a covid test and come spend time with him one last time, hold his hand one last time(which was a huge blessing). While she was waiting for the results to come back he passed away in the night. She hasn't been with him since beginning of March. So heart breaking, this month is their 66 anniversary. I feel for you Penn, it's incredibly hard, and that was just my grandpa, I cant imagine it being my parents. Prayers of comfort for you all.

Love Penn's compromise! It was creative & respectful of what Kim wanted. Another idea: Let Penn pick the images w/o obligation to place or glue them down. Big fan of The Holderness Family @KimDHolderness - love your vids & podcasts! <3

This was good! My husband and I have a code word for Mommy Daddy time, and yes we schedule it! For sure, kids are not the #1 priority in our marriage. But every marriage is different, so you gotta find what works for you 💗

How are there no comments? This is the best. I love you guys and have followed you for ages. I was nodding along the whole 38+ minutes. I couldn't agree with you all more. Marriage is hard but you have to make it work for however makes it work for you. Never stop making these. Bump it up to 8 Karen! ❤️

This was a super interesting podcast about analyzing dreams! My reoccurring dream is weird..... I dream that I'm going to the bathroom, usually in a public place, and the stall walls are so low that everyone can see me sitting on the toilet. This dream occurs sometimes every few months and sometimes it can be a few years before I dream it again. I think I first had it as a teenager; I'm in my 30's now. I've had the teeth falling out on and it always freaks me out! I dream about babies a lot too. Like last night, I dreamed that a friend I knew a long time ago was having a baby. I visited her and was about to tell her the my non-drugged delivery was excruciating but her dad cut me off and I changed my word to exhilarating. (what?!) Then I went to the nurses desk, picked up a tiny dark haired baby from off the counter and turned to walk to her room....and then I woke up. I never got to her room.

Just wanted to say how much I appreciate this episode and y'all's honesty about it. This was a real eye opener and helpful! One of my favorite speakers says "Facebook is nothing but comparing your B game with everyone else's highlight real". So true. Thanks Holderness fam! I love you guys!!
