On Getting Lost, Laughter, and the Wisdom of Dr. Dre (Episode 12)
Bring some fun and play back into your life!
This is the second series on the Mama Says Namaste Podcast with my most favorite guest (and partner for life), Nathan Logsdon. In this series, we dig deep into the critical components that create a healthy and happy intimate relationship – join us as we discuss
Laughter, Humble Pie, and Lots of Sex!
We love the beauty of unstructured play. Sometimes we can get stuck in this need for stimulation for our children. We make sure they have toys and programs to entertain. But there is so much just within the imagination! Our criteria for an awesome time boils down to water, trees, and large rocks. Wanna see the campsite and our “fairy wonderland”?

“Clear communication. Respect. A lot of laughter. And a lot of orgasms. That’s what makes a marriage work. “ Dr. Dre
Is your mission in life just to pay bills and be unhappy? Most of us don’t strive for that, yet we can get stuck in a rut of doing just that. How can you bring happiness and joy into your life?

Your challenge this week: Go and play! Do something random and fun and completely out of the blue. Go to a park, a trampoline park, roller skating, etc.
GIVE YOURSELF GRACE TO HAVE A GOOD TIME.
Have a good laugh. Be silly. Be goofy. Flirt, tease, and tickle each other. Act like a kid and chase each other around. One night recently the kids were shocked to sneak out of their beds and find us out jumping on the trampoline, laughing and trying to see who could bounce higher. It was a stressful day and we just needed to be silly. They actually ended up jumping with us, and while we didn’t win any awards for consistent discipline that night, we created a really special family memory full of cuddling and giggling and genuinely loving on each other.
I have a tendency to take life way too seriously. If I could narrow down one key thing Nathan does for me on a regular basis, it’s that he makes me laugh. He reminds me that life can be fun – to take in the moment and just enjoy it. And if it gets to heavy, let go and simply laugh. Laughter really is the best medicine in so many situations.
