Zoey, Go out on weekly dates as a couple, talk about the science of optimism and discuss how you can learn to be more optimistic with each other. Check in with each other regularly and do an optimism checkup on your relationship. Are you the cheerleader for your partner?
It’s not only fun to be in an optimistic relationship, but you also set an example for others. An optimistic partnership is a gift to your children, your community; and our world. Relationships are subject to tides and currents. That must be accepted. Occasionally the creek runs dry. But if you address the problems early, you can create new energy and channels to keep the relationship fluid.
