The 5 Secrets to staying completely present in the bedroom

As women, our brains are incredibly active. I mean, we’ve got tons of responsibilities. We have lots of worries and concerns. That’s not something we should be aiming for, but it’s true. We’re always looking for areas of improvement in our lives and we’re trying to do good things. There’s nothing wrong with that, but not being able to manage those thoughts that come in and out on a consistent, constant basis can be really challenging. This is why yoga, and meditation, and mindfulness training are so important these days and so prevalent. Because we’re kind of all a little bit overstrung and a little stressed out. It doesn’t help us when we want to stay present in the bedroom with our spouses. So in this blog, I want to talk about the five simple secrets to staying completely present with your husband in the bedroom.

Episode 20: Sex After Babies with Jenna Dalton

In this episode I chat with my friend and “Certified Postpartum Athleticism Coach”, Jenna Dalton! 

This conversation was so.much.fun to have especially since I had NO CLUE how open Jenna was about talking about sex, orgasms and all that jazz.

We talked about pelvic floor issues, the awkwardness (and importance) of seeing a pelvic floor physiotherapist, the definition of “good” sex, the challenges of motherhood, how to describe what an orgasm really feels like and so much more.

Whether you’ve just given birth or it’s been over 10 years (like myself), this is a really informative and hilarious conversation that I don’t think you want to miss.

Episode 19: Leaving an Extreme Religious Group (that got a little cult-y) Together

In this episode, I talk with Bryn, a sweet and COURAGEOUS married woman who shares her story of marrying within an extremely religious off-shoot group and then eventually leaving the compound with her husband.

We talk about a TON of interesting (and inspiring topics) including:

Episode 18: The Sweetest Love Through the Toughest Time

In this episode, I interview one of my favourite people in the whole world. I met Norene while we were both training to be Marriage Coaches (she’s also been a Marriage Therapist for years and years) and I instantly felt drawn to her.

When I started this podcast, I knew that she would be a guest and I was honoured when she said “yes” to sharing her (and her husband’s) journey of losing their daughter 5 years ago.

We talk about just about everything in this episode and while we are dealing with a heavy topic- this conversation is anything but. 

So settle in and get ready to feel all the feelings 🙂

Episode 17: Learning That Our Child is Transgender

In this episode, I chat with Mel- a really funny and down-to-earth Australian mama who has been going through a pretty big transition in her life.

Although it was clear that they had a “tom-boy” on their hands from very early on in their child’s life, it wasn’t until later on that they discovered their daughter was actually a boy. 

In this conversation, we talk about the very real challenges that they have faced together as a couple and how they are continuing to navigate this new territory together with love, compassion and a true sense of teamwork.

Episode 16: Loving a Man with High Functioning Autism

In this episode, I chat with Michelle, a lovely woman who has been through a LOT in her marriage.

After a very quick engagement period, she discovered that her husband had some quirky social, emotional and communication challenges that neither of them could figure out.

After years of struggle, they found out that he was on the Autism Spectrum which rocked both of their worlds.

But their story doesn’t end there. Listen to the episode to discover how they eventually healed his autism…

Episode 15: Living with Depression Together

In the episode, I chat with Cassandra- a mom of 2 little children who is living with depression along with her husband. 

In this conversation, we talk about the different ways that depression manifests in her husband and herself, how they support one another through bouts of low periods and how they manage to raise their children successfully when things are tough.

Although depression seems like a pretty heavy topic, this interview is full of sweet moments as she shares what a TEAM they have become together through it all. 

Enjoy!
