Hello <<First Name>>
Welcome to the February Newsletter.

Wow, what a busy start to the year. It's been great to be working with so many wonderful clients who are motivated and committed to improving their relationships and positioning themselves for a wonderful start to the year and decade.

Lee has been busy working behind the scenes improving the Save My Marriage program and developing new resources I'm sure you'll love.

With school now back and the worst of the bushfires behind us, I feel it's a good time to make headway on your goals for the year and get some results on the board.

For couples it could be about forgiveness and building trust (see below), having fun together and strengthening your rituals of connection.

For coaching clients it could be about living your values, sticking to your boundaries, and backing yourself to the higher standard you have set yourself to. Perhaps it's taking a bigger leap of faith and  s t r e t c h i n g  yourself with a bigger goal that slightly scares you but deeply inspires at the same time!

Perhaps your thinking "Whoa! I'm stressed, worried, overloaded with work, the last thing I need is more things on my plate Jacqui".
in which case Self Care should be a high priority. Be sure to view the video below on ruminating and the linked resources I've included.

Enjoy this months newsletter!

A key trait of any successful relationship is trust. Sounds simple enough, but what exactly is trust? How do you describe it? How do you measure it?
In this new article, I ask curly questions to get you thinking and briefly explore why trust is important.

For example: No.3  Connect during the day, it could be a short phone call, a brief ‘messenger chat’, or a catch-up for coffee on your break.

Discover more trust building behaviours and strengthen your relationship.

Rumination & Work Related Stress

Are you 'topping out' your window of tolerance? Do you zone out and ruminate about work outside of hours?
How does this impact on your relationship and quality time with kids, family friends?

In this video by psychologist Guy Winch, hear how you can relax and unwind after work, be present around loved ones and reduce the effects of ruminating.
Could this be an area causing tension in your relationship? Could small changes give you back 10 hours+ of quality time per week?
