Have you ever thought of your marriage as being like a football game? Probably not, but here’s what they have in common: staying within the boundaries is important if you want to win.    So, how do you avoid going out of bounds in a marriage? I am discussing the important boundaries that every marriage needs by covering seven of the most common problems married couples encounter because they fail to set boundaries.    Discover how negative patterns of behavior, communication, and mindset can ultimately destroy your marriage if you don't take action now, and learn why boundaries are not meant to stifle you but to create healthy and necessary limitations on how you speak to and treat your spouse when times get tough.   If you’re crossing the line in your marriage, this episode will enlighten and empower you to change your ways and save your marriage before it’s too late.   Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode44   Resources Mentioned: Take the Thrive Life Inventory: thrivelifeinventory.com   I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
Freedom and love are the foundation of a good marriage, so why do some people seek to control their spouses? What does control look like? And if you're the controlling spouse, is it too late to break this damaging habit?   These are some of the questions that we’re answering in this episode. We’re taking a look at some of the different ways we try to control each other in marriage (sometimes without even realizing we’re doing it!)   If you recognize yourself in any of the dynamics I’m describing in this episode, I want you to think about what you can do to change. I’m offering some solutions at the end, so make sure you stay tuned to hear some ideas on what you can do to break controlling habits.    If you want to learn to limit your desire for control and place a higher value on love, this is for you.    Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode43   Resources Mentioned: Take the Thrive Life Inventory: thrivelifeinventory.com   I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
Here on Couch Time with Amy Wine, we’re not afraid to tackle the subjects that no one else wants to talk about, so with that said, are you ready to get real and raw? We’re talking about infidelity.    I know you don’t want to think about ever being hurt by infidelity, but what if you are? Would you be equipped with the tools to handle it? By the end of this episode, you will be.    I’m sharing a step-by-step plan to heal a relationship for both the person who has been betrayed and the person who was unfaithful. It’s going to take work on both sides.    Whether you’re trying to heal from this right now or you just want to be prepared in case the worst should ever happen, this episode has something for you.    If you want to know how to heal a relationship after infidelity, tune in.    Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode42   Resources Mentioned: Take the Thrive Life Inventory: thrivelifeinventory.com   I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
What is the number one thing that impacts your marriage and business that most people don’t talk about?   Your values. That’s right, your values are your true north and the foundation for how you conduct yourself in business and marriage.   We all experience conflict in marriage, but if your value systems are total opposites, you’re going to struggle.    I don’t think we talk about this enough, which is why this episode is so important. I’m talking about how your values show up in your everyday life and sharing an exercise that you can use to discover your top values and those of your spouse and staff.    If you want to get clear on what your values are, tune in to this episode.    Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode41   Resources Mentioned: Take the Thrive Life Inventory: thrivelifeinventory.com   I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
Do you ever look at people who seem to have perfectly balanced businesses and marriages and wonder how they do it? What’s their secret?   Working in the same space as your spouse means there’s very little separation between work and marriage, and that might sound great, but it’s not always easy!    In this episode, I’m sharing everything I’ve learned about balancing business and marriage. If you’re in the thick of it right now, you’re not alone. I’ve been where you are, and I was able to find my way back to a healthy business and marriage, which is how I know that you can do it too.    If you feel like you have to choose between an awesome business or an awesome marriage, this is for you. I believe you can have both, and in this episode, I’m telling you how.    Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode40   Resources Mentioned: Take the Thrive Life Inventory: thrivelifeinventory.com   I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
Do you find it hard to make genuine connections with people in our day and age?   We live in a world where it can feel like everyone is hiding behind a screen, and the pandemic made it harder than ever to make in-person connections. I’m joined by Amanda Christine to talk about why it’s so important for us to be making meaningful connections, and she’s sharing her practical tips on how to do it. She’s also sharing why making connections is something that God intended us to do. Have you ever thought about it that way?   Amanda has mastered the art of asking the right questions to get people to open up. I know this because when we met I told her things I would never normally tell to someone I just met!   Amanda is the founder of the Society of Women Business Owners (SOWBO), a support group recognized for connecting, exciting, and challenging female entrepreneurs. Through one-to-one business coaching sessions, classroom-style training, and live events, Amanda helps women achieve measurable results while not losing sight of their unique influence and greater purpose. Amanda wants to live in a world where success is measured by genuine relationships, messy vulnerability, and passionate risk-taking. When she’s not working with business owners, you can find Amanda sipping coffee and intensely reading or writing at her favorite local coffee shop.    If you want to become someone like Amanda who brings people together and makes them feel comfortable enough to open up, you’re in the right place.  Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode39   Resources Mentioned: Take the Thrive Life Inventory: thrivelifeinventory.com Follow @sowbo_official on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sowbo_official  Join the SOWBO Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SOWBO  Visit the SOWBO Website: https://www.sowbo.org I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
How could a coach change your life and business?   In this episode, I’m joined by board-certified pediatrician Dr. Obidi to talk about coaching and leadership from a business and personal perspective.    Dr. Obidi has some amazing insight into the value of coaching and how to approach coaching with the right mindset. He’s also touching on the importance of delegating when it comes to trying to balance different areas of your life.    Dr. Obidi is a board-certified pediatrician practicing for over 17 years in Western Maryland where he also lives with his wife and their three kids.

What do you think is the number one reason for conflict in a marriage with an entrepreneur?    I’ll give you a hint: It’s not finances or communication. Those are some big ones too, but they aren’t the reason we are talking about today.    You’ve probably noticed from listening to the podcast that there is a lot of crossover between marriage and business, and you’ll see that pattern emerge again in this episode.    There are characteristics that entrepreneurs have that make them successful in business, but those same characteristics can also be the very thing that can bring down their marriages if they're not careful.    If you want help managing conflict in your marriage with an entrepreneur, this episode is the one for you.    Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode37   Resources Mentioned: Take the Thrive Life Inventory: https://thrivelifeinventory.com/   I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
“Vulnerability” is a buzzword that we hear fairly often these days, but why is it so important in building a business or nurturing a relationship? Vulnerability can add a level of depth and connection that would otherwise be difficult to reach.   In this episode of Couch Time with Amy Wine, I am chatting with my friend and business coach, Lianne Kim, about why vulnerability has been essential in her business.    Lianne Kim is the Founder & CEO of Mamas & Co. which is an online community of moms who run their own businesses. In the community, moms connect, support and inspire one another through sharing their experiences and goals.   We get into why vulnerability is important for being a leader, reasons why people hold back from vulnerability, how to share from a place of service instead of oversharing, the disconnection that comes from avoiding vulnerability, and so much more.   I know that this discussion will show you that putting your authentic self out there can be a rewarding and enriching way to improve your connection with others, so tune in!   Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode36   Resources Mentioned: Take the Thrive Life Inventory: https://thrivelifeinventory.com/ Follow Lianne on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mamasandco/ Check out Lianne's Website: https://www.mamasandco.com/ The Business of Thinking Big Podcast: https://www.liannekim.com/blog I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
When yelling and silence no longer work on your husband, is it time to give up? How can you establish a connection with someone who is emotionally unavailable?   In this episode of Couch Time with Amy Wine, I’m joined by my husband, Jon, because I think it's about time we hear his side of things. We talk about how our conflicting family backgrounds have ingrained certain habits and values in us that we have had to unlearn to save our marriage.    One of these things, and the topic of this episode, is emotional unavailability, so if you want to learn why men are sometimes emotionally unavailable and how you can communicate in their language, this episode is really helpful.   Listen in as Jon and I reveal some secret thoughts for the first time, hear how reactions can mean so much in a conversation, how it can be OK not to be understood all the time, and how to put more emphasis on being accepted and loved.    It's not about perfection but growth and celebrating your small victories together as husband and wife.

Do conversations with your partner turn into arguments without you meaning them to? Do you find yourself criticizing or thinking the worst of them without even realizing it?   In this episode, we’re taking a look at an example of how negative feelings can escalate in a marriage. This is not an uncommon problem, so if you’re struggling with this in your marriage, know that you’re not alone.    We’re talking about something called “negative sentiment override” and how it can cause things to go from good to bad to worse in a relationship. It’s when negative sentiment overrides positive interactions or memories and makes it hard to see the good in someone.    I’m sharing some action items for you to implement to overcome the negative sentiment override and get closer to your partner. Never underestimate the power of gratitude, quality time, addressing the problem, forgiveness, vulnerability, and accountability.    Tune in to take a deeper look at each of them.    Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode34   I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
Do you sometimes find yourself craving the company of other people? Small moments of connection with the people in your life have a big impact.    Sometimes you might feel isolated and disconnected from others, even when you’re surrounded by people. This sense of separation has a destructive effect on your ability to rest.    When you’re feeling this way, you’ll probably want to rely on others to make you feel supported and seen, but the secret to relational rest is learning to meet your own needs so that you aren’t dependent on others. That’s what we’re digging into this episode.    If you feel alone, have a hard time making friends, or hide behind a mask because you fear rejection, this is for you.    Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode33   Resources Mentioned: 30-Day Guide to Implement the 7 Types of God-Given Rest Into Your Life: www.godcreatedrest.com/guide Episode 23: How to Stop Defending and Start Listening: http://amywine.com/episode23    I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
Have you ever heard of visionary rest? Probably not, and that’s okay!    If you’re just joining us over here on the podcast, we’ve been talking about the 7 types of rest God designed you to have, and this episode is all about number 6: visionary rest. If you haven’t listened to the other 5 episodes in this series so far, you can go back and catch those any time you want!    Visionary rest is the type of rest that gives you room in your mind and schedule to dream, create, and wonder. It allows for the white space in your life to broaden, and let’s face it, couldn’t we all use a little more of that white space?   This type of rest lets you focus on planting seeds and watching them bloom and allows you to be in the moment without the pressure to perform.   If that sounds like something you could use more of in your life, don’t miss this episode.    Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode32   Resources Mentioned: Sign Up for Awaken Me: https://awakenmejourney.com   I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
What does spiritual rest mean to you? To me, spiritual rest is all about finding rest wherever you are.    In this episode, I’m sharing a story about a physical place where I find spiritual rest, and how I bring that place with me wherever I go. After all, spiritual rest isn’t found in one specific place, it’s found within.    This episode is all about the 5th of the 7 types of rest God designed us to have. If you’re just joining us in this series, don’t worry! You can listen to these 7 episodes in any order, so when you finish this one, go back and catch the last 4 covering physical, sensory, mental, and emotional rest.    If you want to find out what spiritual rest is, how you can find rest wherever you are, and how this type of rest can heal you, then don’t miss this episode.    Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode31   Resources Mentioned: Sign Up for Awaken Me: https://awakenmejourney.com   I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
Have you been taught to shelf your emotions?    Many of us have learned to hide our emotions either as a skill in our professional lives or as a coping mechanism. Turns out, your emotions were never meant to be bottled up. If you bottle up your emotions and never let them out to see the light of day, you’re limiting your ability to heal.    If this is something you know you do, you’re probably in need of emotional rest. Hiding your emotions or a part of yourself is draining! I’m here to help you get in tune with your emotions and get the emotional rest that you need.    If talking about your emotions makes you want to break out in hives, this episode is important for you to hear.    Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode30   Resources Mentioned: Sign Up for Awaken Me: https://awakenmejourney.com   I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
Do you have a hard time shutting off your brain?   You’re not the only one. In this episode, we’re talking about why it’s so important to declutter your brain and how to do it.    We are working our way through each of the 7 types of God-given rest across 7 episodes, and this episode is all about rest type number 3 which is mental rest.    Much like my desk, our minds are full of clutter all day every day. When you learn how to tidy up your mind and release all the junk, it’s life-changing.    This is one of the areas of rest that I struggle with the most, so trust me when I say I get it, but I hope that I can share what I’ve learned with you so that you can get the mental rest you need.    If your mind is constantly racing and you can’t get a break from your thoughts, this is the episode you need.  Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode29   Resources Mentioned: Episode 26: From Crowded To-Do Lists to Purposeful Weeks: http://amywine.com/episode26  Sign Up for Awaken Me: https://awakenmejourney.com/ I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
I want you to come to the beach with me.    The beach is my favorite place, and we’re going to visualize it together at the beginning of this episode to get a little sensory rest.    I'm back with another episode in our series on rest, and we’re moving on to the second type of rest: sensory.    There was a time when life moved slower and we could enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of living. Now, life moves so fast it’s a blur of those sights, sounds, and smells everywhere we turn. Excessive exposure to nonstop sensory information leaves us exhausted and leads to us taking our senses for granted. We tune out our senses in our overly-busy days. If you can learn to rest from a sensory perspective, you’ll be able to enjoy your senses again instead of being overwhelmed by them.    If you’ve noticed you have an increased sensitivity to touch and sound, you crave more processed foods, your eyes feel strained, or you struggle to enjoy events like concerts or firework displays, this episode is for you.    Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode28   Resources Mentioned:   Sign Up for Awaken Me: https://awakenmejourney.com   Episode 26: From Crowded To-Do Lists to Purposeful Weeks: http://amywine.com/episode26    I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
Did you know that sleep is not considered rest?   I’m the queen of insomnia, so this is not my favorite topic, but we need to talk about sleep.   Over the next seven episodes, we’re going to talk about the seven types of rest that God designed for you. We’re doing one a week so that you have a whole week to think about and work on each one.     We’re starting with this episode on physical rest. Physical rest is broken down even further into two different types, so I’m going to cover what the types of physical rest are, what they look like, and the roles they play in your life.    If you have a hard time getting enough sleep at night, or you always feel tired during the day, this is for you.    Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode27   Resources Mentioned:   Sign Up for Awaken Me: https://awakenmejourney.com   I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
What would you do if you had more time in your week?   This episode is your guide to creating a purposeful week. I’m taking you step-by-step through the process of taking your chaotic schedule and turning it into your dream schedule.    This is for you if you’re overwhelmed, overworked, and can’t fit one more thing on your schedule. I know how it feels when you start writing down everything you have to do and you realize you’re never going to fit it all in. Sometimes my to-do lists have to-do lists.    The truth is, you can't always fit it all in. You have to decide what is truly important to you and what you can take out of your schedule because it’s just taking up time you wish you could be spending on something else.    This process of creating a purposeful week is the number one thing that has changed my life, so if you need to get your schedule under control, tune in.    Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode26 Resources Mentioned: 7 Types of God-Given Rest 30-Day Plan: www.godcreatedrest.com Thrive Life Assessment: https://thrivelifeinventory.com/takequiz I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
So, you’ve identified stonewalling in your relationship… what now?   In this episode, I’m joined by my partner in crime, Jon, to talk about how stonewalling has shown up in our marriage. Recently, I sprung it on him that I wanted to take a month-long trip. Turns out that communicating our intentions and expectations for this trip was a little challenging, and what did that lead to? You guessed it: stonewalling.    You’re going to hear how Jon and I have healthy conversations about things that once would have caused huge arguments and hurt feelings in our relationship. Miscommunication from time to time is inevitable, but I want to give you the tools you need to prevent those miscommunications from blowing out of proportion.   If you don’t know what stonewalling is, the last episode of the podcast was all about it, so you might want to go back and catch that one before this one.    If you’re looking for ways to improve your relationship with your partner, this is for you.    Show notes available at http://amywine.com/episode25   Resources Mentioned:   Episode 24: Is Stonewalling Causing Your Relationship Problems?: http://amywine.com/episode24    7 Types of God-Given Rest 30-Day Plan: www.godcreatedrest.com   I would love to connect on Facebook: http://facebook.com/amywineco I would love to connect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amywineco
