    Why Conscious Parenting Can Teach a Lot About Improving Our Romantic Partnerships w/Beth Rowles

    Why Conscious Parenting Can Teach a Lot About Improving Our Romantic Partnerships w/Beth Rowles

    When our partners drive us crazy, we naturally get frustrated, and wait for them to fix themselves - which usually doesn’t work. At the same time, we give our children the love and understanding to be different and to grow in their own way. What if we could apply this concept of conscious parenting to our relationships?
    Instead of thinking about how our partners need to change, we can actually create what we want by turning the lights on ourselves.
    In this episode, Beth Rowles, a certified conscious relationship coach and founder of The Authentic Wife, talks about the simple 3-step framework that has helped hundreds of women fix their marriages and how you can apply the same to your marriage.
     
    "Your husband responds to your concerns and not your commands." -Beth Rowles

    Yes, Pelvic Floor Issues Can Be Fixed (Even If You’ve Had Them for Ages) w/Julie Demers

    If you sprained your ankle and you couldn’t walk properly, you’d take care of it so you could resume your life. However, when it comes to the pelvic floor, women struggle to do the same.

Experiencing pelvic floor problems is actually very normal and way more common than you think. It's never too late to work on it, no matter how old you are or how long you have lived with it.
    What causes pelvic floor problems, and how do we work on them so we can return to what truly makes us happy without fear, worry, or embarrassment?
    In this episode, Julie Demers, an experienced pelvic floor physiotherapist and creator of "Live with Confidence" shares why talking about this issue will help thousands of women improve their lives.
