Season 3, Episode 6 – “Building healthy self-esteem practices for successful dating and relationships
This week host Dr. Mari Kovanen, a registered psychologist and conscious dating coach, discusses the importance of healthy self-esteem in creating successful relationships. The episode delves into healthy self-esteem, and its meaning, and defines the ‘One Down’ and ‘One Up’ positions (a theory by Terry Real), which are both connected to low self-esteem. She explores ways to build a healthy sense of self-worth through self-connection strategies like meditation and journaling, and the practice of self-compassion. The podcast underscores the idea that showing kindness and compassion towards oneself is fundamental in building successful relationships and attracting the right person in one’s life.
