  • Episode 99 - The Importance of Touch

    13/03/2020 Duration: 12min

    This week I researched the power of touch.  There was plenty of information to back up my beliefs. Being touched is the first communication a newborn babe has with those that love them.  Skin to skin calms a crying baby, lowers adults’ heart rate and sends messages to the vagus nerve for relaxation.  These are just a few of the numerous benefits.  I also talk about ideas and solutions for those times when you are simply “all touched out.”  If you are a mother - especially to small children -you know exactly what I am talking about.  Sometimes learning to touch our spouse the way they want takes teaching and learning and communicating in love and compassion.  Test it for yourself. You will be amazed at the difference it can make in your relationship.

It is part of our identity given to us by a loving Heavenly Father- to use wisely.  It can be pure and beautiful and full of goodness. It is a gift. I will discuss figuring out your desires in all aspects of your life and learning to speak your truth.

    Are you exhausted all the time and sex is the last thing on your mind?  You are not alone.  It is a complaint I hear often from clients.  I was recently interviewed on The Doctor’s Wife Podcast with Sara Payne about this topic and the discussion was too good not to share with my listeners as well.  So I am re-airing my interview with Sara.  You can find more about her and her podcast on her website or on her Instagram @sarapaynecoaching.
