Happy Holidays from LoveAndLifeToolbox.com! 
It’s no secret that a happy marriage or long term relationship can be the cornerstone of your life, the foundation in which you build a family, aspire to your goals and dreams and have a port in the storm of life in which to find comfort.  We are born wired to connect to others and intimate relationships are one of the most rewarding connections adults can have.
According to Melanie Greenberg, PhD, “Satisfying relationships not only make us happy, they also influence our long-term health as much as getting enough sleep, eating healthy, and not smoking. Many research studies have shown that satisfying relationships are associated with better health, greater happiness, and even a longer life.”
As you head into the holidays, take a quick moment to assess your primary relationship.  How does it feel?  Safe?  Cozy?  Loving? Peaceful?  We all aspire to this.  But sometimes attaining these supreme states of intimate being are challenging and yes, require a bit of work.  After all, long term relationships move with the flow of life and what’s going on for each partner, individually.  Consider your marriage or LTR a living, breathing thing in and of itself which requires TLC and nurturing.
