I had the absolute delight of sitting down with Dr. Amelia Nagoski, NY Times Bestselling book of “Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle.”
Anyone in a relationship has undeniably discovered the negative impacts of stress, not only on our individual health (in mind, body, heart, and spirit) but also on the health of our connection (particularly if not managed well between us).
This is a must-listen to understand stress in a whole new way (that’s backed by science) — and how we can work together to counteract it.
In this episode, we talk about…
1:23 – The inspiration and personal story behind writing “Burnout”
6:30 – How to detect warning signs that stress is negatively impacting your health
11:12 – How to unlearn what we’ve been told stress looks like
12:00 – How stress appears in a romantic relationship
13:56 – Revelatory insights about the beginning, middle, and end of the stress cycle and how we often get stuck in the middle without completing it
18:59 – The keys to completing the stress cycle
28:38 – The pitfalls of trying to manage your stress externally
35:11 – Unachievable “reasonable expectations” and the layers of stress and stressors
44:55 – Amelia sings a little tune about unspoken agreements and expectations that contribute to burnout in a relationship
50:00 – How self care is not a solo practice and how to support your partner from experiencing burnout
55:00 – What a “thriving relationship” means to Amelia
