TIP #1 – IS NOW A GOOD TIME?
If you have something important you want to discuss with your spouse or partner, asking “Is now a good time to talk?” can make a big difference. It gives the other person a “heads up” that you want their undivided attention, that this is important to you, that you want them to really listen to you. It also shows that you are respectful of their time and are not assuming that they are available on your time schedule. If your partner or spouse says no, it’s not a good time, accept that and ask for an appointment within 24 hours when he/she will talk to you.
Tip #2- HUGS ARE IMPORTANT
Couples who hug and cuddle regularly are more satisfied with their relationship. They feel more emotionally connected to their spouse/partner. Make the effort to hug each other every day, your relationship will benefit. At the end of most couple session I ask couples to give each other a long hug, then remind them that daily hugs are great way to give love while receiving love back. Why not include a long hug each day.
