Ep. 136 Can Couples Therapy Save Our Marriage?

In today?s episode, we get candid about a time when divorce was in the cards for us and share how our couple?s therapist made us aware that it wasn?t realistic to count on one person to be everything to each of us. You?ll hear how our therapist managed to identify that Doug?s habit of speaking in an announcer?s voice is stonewalling, and how she showed us that it is damaging to our relationship. The purpose of this podcast is to connect with you! We tell you how we learn and grow from your contribution and answer a listener question about why the producers of Married at First Sight paired us with one another, before telling you what we are constantly learning from one another. We discuss the guy Jamie dated before she met Doug and the story of how we are still friends with the girl Doug lost his virginity to. Jamie records a voice note after a session with a couple?s therapist and shares her thoughts on boundaries, and how her childhood has shaped who she is today. One of the main things we hope you take from this episode is that spreading yourself too thin serves nobody, least of all you! Please join us for some powerful insights from our personal journey today. Key Points From This Episode: How our therapist helped save our marriage from the brink of divorce. What we learned from therapy: you can?t count on one person to be everything. How Jamie used the voice recorder on her phone as a form of therapy. Doug?s ?announcer voice? and how this stonewalls Jamie in situations of conflict. How you can get in touch via email or social media with your questions. The main aim of Hot Marriage Cool Parents, which is to connect with you! Doug?s endorsement of Manly Bands and their range that you can customize. Listener question: what did the producers find compatible about Doug and Jamie? How Doug has shown Jamie how to get comfortable in her own skin and how Jamie has taught Doug to have drive about everything he does. Jamie shares why the person she dated before Doug was a great guy, but not suited to her. How Doug stayed friends with the girl he lost his virginity to. Jamie?s voice note that she recorded in her car after a couple?s therapy session. How finding the right fit in a therapist has been a huge game changer for us. How putting yourself last doesn?t make you reliable, but is a way to try to get the love and acceptance of people around you. The effect of having no boundaries, which is resentment. How having boundaries benefits absolutely everyone in your life. The story of how Jamie?s mother turned to drugs and put her family?s needs aside. How she realized that setting boundaries helps her please herself and put her family first. What Jamie identified about spreading herself too thin: that she?s no good to anyone, including herself!

Ep. 133 How To Become More Confident, Find Your Passions, And Let Your Goals Dictate Your Life With Lisa Bilyeu

Lisa Bilyeu, who is literally SUCH a boss babe and honestly someone I really look up to in the business world is our guest today! She?s the cofounder and president of the company Impact Theory AND she?s the co-founder of the billion-dollar brand Quest nutrition. She also gets in front of the camera to chat all things female empowerment. Doug and I are super excited to chat all the things with her because she is literally SO inspiring!  Tuning in you?ll hear Lisa share some of the valuable lessons she?s learned about shame and confidence, like why combating shame and establishing confidence is not something you arrive at but is more like a muscle that needs to be trained and maintained. We delve into the importance of identifying future goals, how to do it if you don?t know where to start, and why that internal knowledge is crucial to set boundaries. Later, Lisa opens up about the intense physical debilitation she experienced after years of not listening to her body and building her business, and what recovery meant for her. She shares how she had to reassess her values after her health crisis and why going forward she is keenly aware of whether her work aligns with her purpose. We loved having Lisa on the show and were blown away by her honesty and wisdom. Tune in today for a wealth of insight, compassion, and meaningful advice! Before we bring Lisa on, we chat about how we literally just got back from a crazy heated therapy sesh with our couples therapist where we talked about support systems and how Doug and I have big issues on communication. We came to realize that I don't really have a support system - I don't have parents to go to, and I can't go to Doug's family if I am having issues with my marriage. I've come to realize that my girlfrans feel like my support system! This podcast is like THERAPY for me. Show Notes: 17:25 - Welcome to HMCP, Lisa! 22:25 - Overcoming shame is a muscle. Facing inadequacies and not letting ego get in the way is something we have to keep training! 24:30 - We talk about our goals of what we are trying to get to in 2 sentences 26:48 - Was there a turning point in your life or what was that thing that kind of got you over the edge to start you on that routine of working on yourself and empowering women? 37:13 - What helped make the transition into sharing your story and empowering women? 45:20 - What would you say to the person who says I don't know what my goals should be - where do I even start? 54:08 - What were your goals at the age of 14? 58:00 - Tell us about your book! "People think confidence is the end goal...but confidence isn't your end goal. Confidence is your TOOL to get to the end goal! .... Focus on the end goal of impacting others!!!!" - Lisa Bilyeu Lisa's Insta: https://www.instagram.com/lisabilyeu/  Impact Theory Website: https://impacttheory.com/  And Thank You to Our Sponsor: Ritual - Get key nutrients?without the B.S.!

Nate received a Ph.D. from Princeton University and Kaley has a Masters in Sociology from Stanford University. Nate is a founding partner of the company, Mindful, and Kaley has been featured on TedX.

Ep. 120 Doug & Jamie Have An Intense Heart to Heart with Each Other with the Help of Relationship Coach Dr. Gertrude Lyons Part 1

Dr. Gertrude Lyons, the woman who is rewriting the mothercode, & helping women heal the mother wound is our guest today! Dr. Gertrude Lyons is a Master Life Coach and Relationship Expert with over 20 years of experience. Through her Rewriting The Mother Code initiative, which challenges the traditional notions of motherhood and womanhood, Dr. Lyons has become a national mothering revolutionary. She challenges the myths surrounding womanhood, mothering, and the very notion of what it means to be a mother. It?s Dr. Lyon?s belief that the concept that all women have a ?mother code? instilled in them?which is the current model for mothering in our culture ? she sees that as broken. It is limited, constricting, and disempowering. She questions preconceived beliefs and focuses on topics that will tap into the powerful femininity within all of us. She also hosts her own podcast, the mot(HER) Podcast. We got into some nitty gritty all about our marriage and relationship, so there is a part 2 to this episode that will be next week! ???? Before Dr. Lyons comes on, Doug updates everyone on life with the Hehners including Hendrix's 1st birthday, spending time in New Jersey, and their hopes of being able to build their dream home!

It?s definitely been a busy few weeks including a quick family trip out to L.A.! We are back now and hope that our sharing the parenting struggles we have will help someone out there. We love you guys! We know we say it ALL the time, but you guys genuinely are the best ever!   So long story short, Henley was born with a piece of skin over her private area. The doctors told us it was fine and that it would eventually fix itself. Well she was playing in the house and ended up falling and tearing that skin? we didn?t know that was what it was at the time. It caused our sweet baby so much pain! My heart was broken in a million pieces! So we brought her to the doctors after a rough couple of days just to make sure she was okay.    We also chat about being thankful that we saw her get hurt since we are living in a new place, she's going to a new school and we have new babysitters, etc. and could have been worried about Henley being taken advantage of :-\ We also share our thoughts about how important it is to teach kids at a young age what the names are of their private parts, so that they know how to defend themselves if the need were to come!   Okay guys, till next week...make sure you register to vote!
