On of my favorite quotes from my mentor Terry Real is, "Intimacy is not something we have, but something we do."
When couples focus on taking the time to connect via date nights, emotional and physical connection, the relationship feels better and so we're more effective parents, bosses, and employees. We also model this health for our kids.
Couples researcher John Gottman says, "Working briefly on your marriage every day will do more for your health and longevity than working out at a healthy club."
Connection heals. When parents have a strong relationship, we teach our kids how to have one. When our relationship is strong, we feel better and live longer.
"The highest safeguard for the physical, mental, and spiritual health of the child is not primarily the attention paid to the child but the unrestricted love of the parents for each other."
