    mindfulness – maintaining awareness of the present moment
    biofeedback – using electronic device to gain feedback on physiological function
  3. Couples commonly confront issues in settling differences of opinion - practice nondestructive arguing
    money issues - identify the exact source of conflict and discuss financial goals
    Sexual feelings/desires - remember earlier years of the relationship and that quality matters most.
    Extramarital affairs- openly discuss feelings and determine if the marriage can survive
    Two-career couples- if working in different cities spend weekends together; alternating between career and home priorities.
  4. Those in a healthy relationship are willing to open up; sensitive to their friend's/partner’s feelings; often express appreciation; know that people will disappoint them from time to time; frequently talk about their thoughts and feelings; recognize that both people in the relationship have the right to be accepted as they are; always remember that no one in a relationship has the right to force the other to do anything.
  5. In a unhealthy relationship - start a dialogue and focus on communication, not confrontation. Distance yourself by taking a vacation from a bad relationship.
