The Marriage & Motherhood Podcast: The Benefits of a Healthy Bedtime Routine with Danielle Ubhaus

Sleep is the one thing we're told we're gonna lose out on as parents. Too bad babies don't come out knowing how to sleep through the night already right?

Sleep deprivation can really mess with you. You feel all out of sorts, you don't know what day it is, you don't remember when you last showered, and you're also a lot less patient and lot more snippy.

The Marriage & Motherhood Podcast: 2 Types of Conflict

communication Jul 18, 2023

Communication can be hard and conflict is not fun. To most of us, it feels like a waste of time, something we'd rather avoid having to experience because it doesn't feel good at all. It's emotionally draining, it's uncomfortable, and then you have to get over that awkward stage between not being ok as a couple and being ok again.

As a mom, it already seems like there isn't enough time in the day for just the normal day to day stuff so we definitely don't have the time to have arguments with our spouse. But when conflict is done the right way, it can actually save you time because it can prevent future arguments from happening. However, in order to do that you've got to know the two types of conflict there are and see which kind you're engaging in majority of the time so you can start fighting the right way - the way that benefits your relationship.

In this week's episode of The Marriage & Motherhood Podcast, I share:
