Sex, Love & Elephants with Dr. Cheryl
Be a Mindful Lover and Rewrite Your Story- Summer of Love Part 8
“Dr. Cheryl… How can mindfulness and meditation help my sex life?” Welcome to part 8 of my Summer of Love couples Q&A series. For the last two months, I’ve been answering real questions from listeners just like you. Today, I’m talking about being more mindful in relationships and how NOT to make up stories about your sweetheart. You can look at the story, rewrite the story, and change the story that you’re telling yourself.
Do YOU have a question about Sex, Love, and Relationships you would like me to answer on the podcast this summer? Email it to email@example.com with the subject line “Podcast Question.” Give me a little background about your relationship, ask your question, and tell me if I can use your name or if you’d like to remain anonymous. :)
