What You’ll Learn Today:

  • How long it really takes to create a habit
  • How changing relationship habits is just like changing any other habit
  • What you’ve been doing wrong to change habits in the past
  • How to use Action Triggers to make habits stick!

What this episode is all about:

Creating a great relationship is all about creating great relationship habits: getting into the habit of thinking of the other person’s needs; getting into the habit of really listening and being present when your partner says something; or getting into the habit of thinking of one thing you’re grateful for each day about your partner. 

Creating a great relationship is also about breaking bad habits maybe of nagging, criticizing or judging. 

The good news is that the method for changing relationship habits is the same as for changing other habits, and there’s a lot of research on how to do that. So, whether you’re here today to change your relationship, your eating or fitness or some other part of your life that’s not working, this information will help you get there!
