EPISODE DESCRIPTION: Relationships can be tough, especially during a global pandemic! Many of us are spending more time than ever before with our partner, while COVID-19 has made it harder to connect with others if we are single and looking for a relationship. Thankfully, whether we are single, in a relationship or somewhere in between, there are things we can do now to attract the kind of love we want in our lives, as I discuss in this podcast interview with bestselling author, speaker and couple’s counselor Monica Berg. We talk about everything you need to know about healthy relationships, including why we need to rethink love, how to attract the kind of love you want, rekindling love in your life, building frameworks for lasting and fulfilling relationships, tips for single people, how to become more comfortable with change, why we need to argue more and how to argue better.
