Episode Show Notes

I know what you’re thinking… So what is it, Jess??? What’s the big action step that will impact so many of my relationships?

Here’s my tip: 

  • Give 5 positive pieces of feedback for every 1 negative. 

Yep. That’s it. 

Of course, this doesn’t mean that you are counting in every conversation. But overall, you want the tone of your relationship to be focused on the positive. You want to be giving genuine compliments, catching people doing awesome things, commenting on their wonderful qualities, and sharing positive comments about your life together. 

In marriage therapy, this is known as the “emotional bank account.”
