Thanksgiving is tomorrow… are you ready?
It’s great time to pause and consider what you’re thankful for as individuals and as a couple. We’ve touched on gratitude in previous episodes and it’s a powerful way to cultivate a more positive perspective on your life and experiences, as well as your relationship. When a couple embarks on a gratitude practice, the impact is exponential.
We know - the holidays can be tough. Each one brings with it a host of expectations, stressors, past experiences, and more. Thanksgiving is not different. These expectations are based on what each of you think is the “right” way to celebrate, your past traditions, and what your families expect of you.
It’s important to feel like a team as you and your partner walk into Thanksgiving dinner. You need to feel supported and like you have each other’s back. Not sure how to accomplish this?
Be sure to listen to this week’s episode, as we’ll be covering all of this and more. We’re talking about:
- What makes Thanksgiving so emotionally charged
- How to prioritize your relationship during the holiday
- How to get along “good enough” with everyone
- Cultivating an attitude of gratitude
We’ve also created a helpful bonus - The Thanksgiving Survival Worksheet - that’s going to take you through what each of you needs to get through the holiday, the best ways to be there for one another, and how to come out united at the end of the day. Download it below!
