So much of what I’ve learned about great relationships has come from Gay and Kathlyn Hendricks. Between the two of them, they have written more than a dozen books on the topic.

Tim and I have shared our learnings in our free Relationship Reset talks the last few weeks, and previously in Huffington Post. While we’ve been in close quarters for the last few months, the Stuff Talk and Heart Talk are two important practices that have helped us stay in connection.

Stuff and Feelings Are Two Talks For Great RelationshipsFor great relationships, try taking 10 minutes twice a week (or more frequently if you like) to share your feelings with your partner separate from the discussion of the business of life, like what the kids are up to or who’s going to handle certain chores.

Gay and Katie shared the details of the practice here in a free chapter of Katie’s book, Conscious Loving Ever After.
