    Why Being “Selfish” Might Actually Improve Your Relationship | Relationship Theory

    You’re super busy between work life, home life and parenting life. There are always things to do and places to be, which leave you exhausted. In a fast paced society people are trained to not have meaningful downtime. Taking time for yourself can almost feel like punishment when you have so much on your plate. Any amount of time away from the kids can easily leave a parent with more guilt than relaxation. Tom and Lisa discuss why making time for yourself is critical and also how selfish, me-time can also include doing things you love with the person you love most as well. So whether it’s watching your favorite show or playing a video game with your partner, the point is to enjoy your downtime, be recharged, and feel good about yourself. [Original air date: 7-23-21].

    In this episode, we’re diving into:

Thank you for this podcast!

I appreciate Lisa’s openness and positive energy. The information has been so very helpful to me. I feel I have been able to step back the critical self talk and have more self compassion thanks to these podcasts… it’s much less do, do, and do; more be.
