Relationship Yoga:
Hello, extremely productive couples who have very busy schedules! (You know who you are.) It’s hard to keep your marriage in good condition when you “don’t have time”. You may not have time to have a consistent date night, or to spend time together, just the two of you because of work, children, etc. But you’ve got time for this. I call it relationship yoga, because it has several “poses”, and it is easy to follow.
1) Start with a full body hug. This will calm your nerves and make you feel more connected.
2) Gaze into each other’s eyes for 5 – 10 seconds.
3) Kiss for 10-20 seconds.
4) Say “One thing I love about you is…” Each person takes a turn.
5) Hug again and say “I love you. I’ll be thinking about you today.”

How to let go of anger:
First of all, don’t let go of it too soon. Depending on the situation, it may have protected you from too much pain. However, when you are ready, say “thank you” to the anger, and allow it to depart from you. You don’t need to hold onto it forever. Say “Thank you for protecting me. Thank you for giving me the strength to do what I needed to do. Thank you for showing me that I am a valuable person and that I can make changes when I need to. Thank you for giving me the strength to deal with that situation.”

Tiny houses are getting a lot of attention nowadays, so I’ve been thinking about the attraction of minimalism and tiny living. I think people are so overwhelmed by how complicated everything is that the idea of living in a tiny space with a composting toilet (!) is appealing. (Can you tell I really like my flush toilet?) Less to pay for, less to clean, less to worry about. And it forces you to dump a lot of your stuff.

Yes, life can be difficult, and often is. I think, however, that as a society, we have all decided that something is wrong when that happens. No, it’s not. At every stage of life, things can and do “go wrong”, or at least do not go according to our “plan” or expectations.
When we are six years old, our parents’ divorce can be very difficult. Yes, life can be hard for a six-year-old. Life does not discriminate based on age. The fact that other six year olds live in war torn countries and have lost their parents, and need food, does not make the six-year-old who has divorced parents feel any better about his/her situation! Difficult is difficult. Hard is hard. We are all called upon to bear up and make the best of what is.
Marriage and relationships are hard!

Personal boundaries are necessary. If you feel that people “walk all over you”, or if you wonder if you are a “doormat”, think about your own boundaries. First consider what they are. You may not know! And then think about this: Once you know what your boundaries are, if you do not let other people know, you are not being honest with them.
