Katherine Redlus

This is the beginning of a first time collaboration between father and daughter duo, Mark and Katherine Redlus. Simply put, this podcast is about their curiosity and hunger to find a way to walk through daily life with more meaning, purpose, calm and joy. They enjoy diving in regularly on topics ranging from cutting through the noise of self-development and "hustle culture" to spirituality, work and creativity. They hope this podcast will encourage and inspire others to have more reflective conversations with their friends, family and colleagues. read less

Episode 6 - What's Eating You?
This episode is as real as it gets helping to identify what's at the bottom of a chronic bad mood through real-time self-examination by Katherine and working through that together.  "Grouchy" is a thing we all face, and, no, it isn't the 8th Dwarf.Mark leads a discussion on helping to identify what season of life you might be in and discusses some real world lessons that he has learned in helping him to refocus and begin to remove certain things from his plate.We also explore the effect that hobbies can often have on our psyches when we're not in the right frame of mind.  We discuss how they can go from fun and mindspace-clearing to real work and not-so-fun chores, and some ideas on what to do when that happens.  It's okay - it happens to all of us.Overall, this feels like a REAL conversation between the two of us; it will probably feel like REAL conversations that you've had with family and friends.  We hope that it helps in your own daily life reflections. Please enjoy.Links from the show:Reference/Quote Made in the Show re: Hobbies and Work:"Anyone else stuck in this weird cycle where work is so exhausting that your hobbies feel like too much work so you don't do them then you go back to work upset that you didn't take time to do the things you like and rinse and repeat?" - IGThe High Performance Planner: https://www.amazon.com/High-Performance-Planner-Red/dp/1401957323/ref=asc_df_1401957323/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312610812881&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=358369749566256862&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9007336&hvtargid=pla-572170906023&psc=1&tag=&ref=&adgrpid=61194519294&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=312610812881&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=358369749566256862&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9007336&hvtargid=pla-572170906023University of Pennsylvania Self-Testing:https://www.authentichappiness.sas.upenn.edu/testcenter(There are many tests/surveys here; Katherine references the VIA survey down the page on character strengths, but many interesting tests to choose from)
