Do You & Your Spouse Know How to Handle Stress?

Dr. Byrne, recently gave a podcast for Stay Happily Marriedsharing 5 steps to better mental health for couples.

Stress is all around us, all the time. Family responsibilities, hectic schedules, and a never-ending to-do list can make it difficult for couples to slow down and take a breath. When stressful situations arise how do you keep your cool?

When we add stress on top of stress it compounds and festers until it’s dealt with. Couples often lose sight of themselves and focus on the various distractions and priorities that consume their lives. When we can’t take time out for ourselves and we can’t dedicate time to our relationship, our mental health suffers. Go ahead, put yourself and your relationship first and de-stress from the chaos in life with these five simple steps.

Please share this with your friends and family. We can all use helpful reminders that improve our mental health and our relationships with others.

Warm Wishes,
