Play • 46 min

Haruna Borg and Mark Borg are both couple therapists who understand very well the impact of the lockdown on our mental health. Personally, they have lost patients to the COVID, and they also saw couples virtually, even when they came down with the COVID, . And at the same they are parenting their two school going kids. The couple is no stranger to the fact that tempers tend to flare when you are living 24/7 with someone you love locked up in a tiny space that serves as home, office, play area and gym.

In this episode, the Borgs, share openly the negative impacts of  toxic positivity, the technique they use to handle conflicts in their personal lives, why apologies never work and how to effectively strike a balance in our every day lives.
