As we navigate the most stressful global events of our lifetime, how can we meet these challenging times with the calm presence to respond to circumstances, emotions and events as opposed to flying off the handle and panicking.
Reactivity erodes relationship trust and stability. While no one is immune to reactivity, we can learn to improve our way of responding to stressful situations.
Here is an exercise to practice with your partner (or kids or parents, whomever you’re in quarantine with) to practice speaking about a topic with some charge to it and coming back to calm objectivity.
If you have any questions or comments, please share them with me, and I will answer your questions (or any relationship questions) every Tuesday at 9:00am on FB LIVE.
