We Are All Living With Sister-Wives – Here's Why

Jun 02, 2021

Okay, so the other day I watched all episodes of Three Wives, One Husband on Netflix. If you haven't seen it yet, I definitely recommend watching it after reading this email haha.

What fascinated me so much was that in this particular family, Abel and his three sister-wives Suzie, Marina, and Beth, reminded me so much of my relationship... with myself.

To the left, you've got Suzie. The happy-go-lucky first wife believes that everything will work out in the end. If a challenge comes...

How to Form a New Habit Overnight and Apply It to Your Relationship

May 21, 2021

When the vet told me to put an ice pack on Menace's leg 15-20 minutes morning and evening for the first week after surgery, there was no doubt in my mind that I would do it. There was no mind drama or feelings of "uughhhhh do I have to?".

But when it comes to some other habits that I want to implement, I can't keep it up for more than a day or two before my mind starts arguing with me, telling me it's not a good idea.

So why are some habits so much easier to form than others? Why can we...

A post shared by Katrin Berndt Coaching (@katrinberndt)


The more polished and put-together things looked on the outside, the more chaotic they were on the inside.

This is a photo from about 5 years ago. Things for sure looked fabulous, but I don’t think I’ve ever felt more insecure and on edge. It’s like my appearance, the hair, the makeup, the lip fillers, the lashes, the nails, all of it was me trying to run...

Using Mental Bus Stops to Access The Next Best Thing

May 18, 2021

This is the transcript for The Grumpy Girlfriend Podcast episode 20: The Mental Bus Stops.

I have been coaching my clients on mental bus stops recently. This is a tool that is very useful for anyone who is going through a change and sometimes falls back into old habitual ways of thinking, feeling, and acting.

It's completely normal and to be expected that we're not perfect from day 1. We are going to fail over and over again, but that doesn't mean that we need to beat ourselves up...

The Difference Between Attachment and Commitment in a Relationship

May 02, 2021

In this video, I talk about the difference between attachment and commitment in a relationship. What happens when it ends, and maybe even more importantly, what are your thoughts about what's going to happen if it ends? Those thoughts can impact your relationship in very significant ways if you are not aware of the thoughts you're having.

Have you perhaps ever noticed yourself freak out at the thought of your partner leaving? Or perhaps freak out at the thought of having to leave...

What It Means to "Have Your Own Back" During a Personal Development Journey

Apr 25, 2021

In this video, I break down what it means to have your own back during your personal development journey and most importantly why it matters.

It's one thing to know that "self-love is a good thing", but if we don't truly understand why our self-judgment and criticism is holding us back, we're not actively going to let it go. Your brain is smart like that. It will hold on to anything that's easy and automatic in order to save energy, even if it might not be good for you.

If you struggle...

Relationship Role Models: Inspiration or Pressure?

Apr 19, 2021

In this video, I talk about relationship role models and the difference between using them to our advantage and using them against ourselves.

It's quite common to fall into the comparison trap and use other people's positive traits as evidence of our own lack. But what if we instead could train our brain to be inspired by other people and the things about them we admire and value?

I might even go as far as to say that admiring and appreciating traits in other girlfriends can help...
