John Gottman, a marriage researcher, once said we need to create a Culture of Appreciation. What that means is that we actually verbalize to our spouse or to our mate what we about appreciate about them and what they do that we really enjoy. This is so, so, important when it comes to a good relationship because if our spouse or partner or significant other just thinks that we think negatively about them, then that can create a lot of turmoil and can create a lot of conflict in a relationship. But if we just take the simple step of showing appreciation, just verbalizing what we appreciate about them, just the little things that we appreciate about them can do a multitude of good for a relationship.
I would challenge you for this week with everything else going on your lives to really focus on your spouse and tell them how much you appreciate them. Tell them how much you love them and how much you care about them. So, I hope this helps and I hope you have a great week.
