EP242: Thriving Romantic Relationships in 3 Simple Steps with Monica Berg


The quality of our romantic relationships can literally shape the course of our health for better or worse. 

Positive relationships can lead to better pain control, less anxiety, fewer doctor’s visits and maybe even a longer life.  

On the flip side, relationships with high levels of conflict are associated with higher blood sugar levels, elevated blood pressure and an increased risk of obesity. 

Which is why I am THRILLED to share one of my favorite relationship experts in the world, Monica Berg. 

Monica Berg is a dear friend, one of the wisest women I know and the author of Rethink Love: 3 Steps for Being the One, Attracting the One and Becoming One. 

This podcast is FULL of surprising and practical strategies you can use today to improve the quality of your relationship AND your health dramatically. Here’s what you’ll learn...

  • The one thing we all need to do more of to stay young (and in love)
  • Why your partner actually pushes your buttons
  • How much you really need to disclose in a relationship
  • The simple antidote for nitpicking your partner
  • Why there is no such thing as a stable marriage
  • One critical step for a successful marriage 
  • How the stories in your head hinder healthy relationships
  • Why shame and guilt can destroy relationships (and how to change it!) 
  • The difference between self care and self interest 
  • Why your partner shouldn’t be responsible for validating you
  • The difference between feedback and validation
  • Why you should create a credo
  • The one list you should make in the morning to set yourself up for success
  • How to help our children work through their emotions successfully
  • And so much more!

Please share this important podcast with everyone you think it may benefit! Many of us are spending more time than ever with those we love - and this information could make sure your relationships are working for your health - rather than against it. 

I sincerely hope it’s as helpful for you as it was for me!
