Do you have a relationship that you would like to improve? Most of us do.
How’s the quality of your romance? The relationship with your parents? Your children? Your co-workers? Your friends?
Research reveals that the quality of our loving relationships is the single biggest predictor of our happiness, physical health and emotional well-being.
If you’re in a dysfunctional relationship, you’re more likely to develop a serious disease within four years. Also, you are likely to die four years earlier.
Emotional anguish and stress affect our bodies.

My dear friend, Dr. Cindy Libert, interviewed me for the podcast. She is a holistic integrative medicine physician in Asheville, NC. The podcast is 23 minutes long.
Dr. John Gottman’s research found that our romantic relationships have a 93% probability of ending if we use five specific behaviors.
Ninety-nine percent of the couples who walk into my office use these five hurtful behaviors.
I’ll explain what NOT to do so you don’t unknowingly damage your relationships.
The good news is that we can change our destructive habits once we become aware of them.
Can damaged relationships be repaired?
The good news is, “yes.” Even when there’s been an affair, 73% of marriages become healthy with Gottman Couple Therapy.
If you are a highly sensitive person like I am, it’s even more important to learn this information. Why? Because unresolved conflicts hurt us even more.
If you aren’t a highly sensitive person, no worries. You will benefit from this podcast too.
Listen to the podcast, and please share it with your friends and family.
Remember, this information can be applied to any kind of relationship. If every person used these skills, we all would be much happier. That’s what I want for you.
