“My Partner’s Unhealthy Habit is Driving Me Crazy!” (Part Two)

Whether it’s smoking, indulging in less-than-ideal meals or not hitting the gym as often as we desire, it’s easy to take our partner’s unhealthy habit personally. If you’re struggling to cope with a partner’s habit, Dr. Alexandra is here to help. In the second episode of this two-part series, Dr. Alexandra introduces the idea of a ‘Health Habit Discrepancy’ and encourages you to get curious about why you and your partner might think differently about health habits. Then, Dr. Alexandra speaks to both partners, providing guidance on how to navigate this conversation with sensitivity and understanding.
