BETTER COMMUNICATION FOR COUPLES

Couples who stay together - and stay happy - use positive communication skills. Practice these positive techniques in conversation with your partner:

  • Show genuine interest in your partner
  • Take turns talking
  • Communicate understanding of your partner's problem
  • Validate your partner's emotions
  • Show affection
  • Don't give your partner unsolicited advice

HAPPINESS BOOSTER

Take a daily "thank you" walk. Simply walk outside, in a mall, at lunch, or anywhere else you can think of, and think about all of the things, big and small, that you are grateful for. Research shows that you can't be stressed and thankful at the same time. When you combine gratitude with physical exercise, you flood your brain and body with positive emotions and natural antidepressants that lift your energy, mood and happiness.
