Being Present

Life can be challenging. When a loved one calls with bad news, it is natural to want to "fix" the problem even when it is not something that can be fixed. Too often we forget that just being present, listening without judgment, is not only the least we can offer but often it is the best thing we can give a hurting person. Just be present. More often than not, that is more than enough.

Have the Money Talk with Your Partner

It's the "dreaded" conversation, but both of you need to be on the same page in order to save money. Schedule a time in which neither of you are busy and sit down and discuss your budget. Doing this together as a "money saving team" means you're both more likely to stick to your budget!

One Nice Thing a Day

If you have a problem with someone, practice doing "One Nice Thing a Day" for the problem person. It's amazing how just that act can smooth out a problem relationship. It's working for me!

Relationship Conflict Resolution

Do not argue when you or your partner are tired, stressed, hungry, or ill. Timing is everything in order to reach an agreement.
