One Essential Key To Finding Happiness In Your Marriage Ep 96

One Essential Key To Finding Happiness In Your Marriage | Marriage Coach

 

That one thing is learning how to feel, identify, understand, process and then regulate your emotions.

Probably not the magic solution you were hoping for, huh?

If you think feeling your emotions is for wimps or it might feel too painful, then can I ask you a question?

Why do you think feeling your emotions is for wimps? 

Why do you think it will be too painful?

Those are entirely different thoughts that two people might think, yet they are contradictory, wouldn’t you say?

What if you discovered that opening up and sharing what you are feeling is quite sexy and that feeling the pain and letting it out was cathartic?

Both are true, and if you want to experience them in your own life and your love relationship, this week’s episode is for you

You will discover the one essential key to finding happiness in your marriage. This key will help you with every single problem you can imagine when it comes to an intimate relationship.

In this Marriage Masterclass, I am going to share: 

  • What I see to be the most important thing you can work on to create a marriage that feels like something you want to nurture and grow, instead of something that makes you feel less than valuable 
  • How this one thing came to affect your marriage the way it does
  • Why these things are in your life and what their purpose is 
  • The process to change this one dynamic and the impact it will have on your marriage

Creating Healthy Marital Expectations Ep 95

Creating Healthy Expectations In Your Marriage | Marriage Coach

<

 

When you get married, you have all sorts of expectations about what your spouse will or won’t do.

First, there are all those lovely things they did when you were dating that you expect them to keep doing.

Then there are those things you assumed they would do, inherited beliefs from the household you grew up in.

And then there are the things you imagined they absolutely wouldn’t do.

There are many problems with these expectations in your marriage, but the biggest problem is that they are tearing your marriage apart.

Look, I’m not blaming you; I’m right there with you, and you know who else is?

Your spouse!

Yep, they also have expectations around what YOU will and won’t do.

With the holidays coming up and all of the expectations filling the air, this episode drops with excellent timing.

In this week’s episode about Creating Healthy Expectations, you will find out: 

  • what expectations are
  • the problem with unmet expectations
  • how to deal with your expectations so that you can create joy instead of resentment in your marriage this holiday season

How To Have A Successful Cross-Cultural Marriage with Sonia Dhaliwal Ep 94

How To Have A Successful Cross Cultural Marriage with Sonia Dhaliwal | Marriage Coach
 

This episode started out as one of the Magical Marriage Success episodes, which it is, but there are so many gems Sonia shares about her experience with marriage across different cultural backgrounds that I made it an episode standing all on its own.

Enjoy this week’s episode that shares Sonia’s pre-dating experience, family of origin introductions, and then passage into marriage across a mix of American and East Indian cultures.

Sonia Dhaliwal is a weight loss coach for teacher moms. She helps teachers lose weight for the last time so they can feel comfortable in their own skin again. After many years of being a professional dieter, Sonia decided enough was enough with this battle. Going through preeclampsia during the end of my youngest child’s pregnancy was a wake-up call. She had been teaching elementary school for over 11 years and knew something had to change so she could get some answers.

While concentrating on family during her maternity leave, Sonia decided to enroll in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to learn more about holistic health and what it means to eat in a way that doesn’t involve counting calories, points, or grams of fat. It changed her life in so many ways and one of the biggest was becoming a health coach. By losing over 55 lbs through the whole food eating approach, she decided this would be an eye-opener for the busy teacher moms out there who were just like her. She keeps it practical, simple, and doable because teacher mommas are busy. Slow and steady is her approach and it’s what keeps the weight off for the long term.

Everyone’s journey is different but through talking about our stories we release what holds us back while passing that energy on to others so they can heal their own relationship. Love is possible and I hope you will allow Sonia’s story to help bring you hope for something different!

Finding The Gifts Of Your MarriageMarriage Commitment Leaks & How They're Destroying Your Marriage | Marriage Coach
 

Leaks in your marriage commitment often go unnoticed.

  • An extra hour at work.
  • A little extra time spent at that volunteer event.
  • Bringing the kids to that last-minute event even though you had a date night planned.
  • That extra cardio session at the gym.
  • That conversation with that co-worker of the opposite sex that really gets you.

Over time, these little leaks add up to a neglected marriage where the damage seems so overwhelming that you have no idea where to start your repair project.

What is it that you’re doing that has you avoiding that thing you want to do in your marriage to begin the process but feels way too uncomfortable?

This week on AwakenYou in your marriage, I dig into the messy work of closing up relationship commitment leaks and the effect that work will have on moving you closer to the marriage you desire.

Let’s Talk Marriage on Weight Loss For Teacher Moms Podcast

Between a full time career working with students all day, coming home to the evening job of motherhood, attempting to find time for ourselves, how are we supposed to cater to our other half in the house? Sometimes they are around us, we pass them in the hallway, and maybe do a high-five as we pass by, but we’ve forgotten how to nurture and have a relationship with that person. 

You’re not alone. So many teacher moms vent about the exhaustion at the end of the day and sometimes the frustration with having a spouse who doesn’t quite understand how our job is never done. How could we possibly have the energy to spend more quality time with one more person? 

This week we are focusing on our other half and how we can focus more on that slice of the Circle of Life called “relationships.” It is after all a part of the primary foods and has a significant impact on our weight loss journey. 

This week’s guest, Christine Bongiovanni is a love and relationship coach with thirty-plus years of experience guiding women to love themselves and the life they are living. Christine helps her clients go from thinking they’d be happier elsewhere to falling deeply in love with the one they’re with; she loves watching others create a life they want to wrap their arms around!

In this week’s episode you’ll hear:

  • How to squeeze in some time for our spouse despite a lack of energy or busy schedules so we don’t forget who we once were as a couple
  • Ways to bring up frustration or even have talks about spreading out the household workload so neither person feels overwhelmed 
  • How to overcome a lack of body confidence so that you and your spouse can still have that intimacy you yearn for
  • The importance of meeting your needs, while still nurturing your spouse

How Your Attachment Style Is Affecting Your Marriage Ep 92

How Your Attachment Style Is Affecting Your Marriage | Marriage Coach
 

 

Many of us married our partners because we thought they would heal all of our old heart wounds.

Of course, you didn’t say that to yourself 🤣, but if you take a moment to think about it, it makes complete sense.

Then they do something that makes you pull back and protect your heart.

Maybe they started staying at work longer than you thought they should.

Maybe they didn’t fix the leaky faucet as daddy did.

Maybe they stopped preparing your lunches.

That’s when your heart remembers those old wounds and starts protecting you by lashing out or trying to patch things up even though you’re angry, or maybe you withdraw and ignore the feelings in your heart.

Attachment styles help us understand how we deal with our hurting hearts, and this week on AwakenYou in your marriage, I am sharing last week’s Marriage Masterclass because it was that good.

And because it might help you make sense of how you show up when you feel unloved by your spouse.

Start making sense of your behaviors and use the three action steps I share at the end to discover your go-to attachment style and start the work of creating your secure attachment.

In this Marriage Masterclass, I am going to help you:

  • Demystify the attachment style concept so you can see how it plays out in your life and relationships
  • Discover both of your dominant styles and see how this combination may be keeping the relationship stuck
  • Learn how you are (unconsciously) seeing your spouse as a threat to your lovability so you can start interacting with discovering safety in interactions
  • Start having your own back and opening up to the love you desire
