Welcome to summer! Okay, so it’s hot. We all know that. Make yourself a cold drink and use the heat to your romantic advantage. 

Some relationship advice:

· Go for a walk in the park as it starts to cool off in the afternoon/evening.

· Watch a gorgeous sunset together.

· Go out for ice cream (Okay, fro-yo for the health-conscious).

· Dine outside for a refreshing change of pace.

· If you’re nature types, go camping next to a nice, calm lake.

But true, it isn’t all the “lazy days”. Summer also has its stresses. If you have children, it can be a time of high pressure with a lot of random logistic holes that need to be covered by busy parents. This is the reality of the situation, and aside from easing the chaos by planning well, it’s just the nature of the season. Don’t let that get you down! Before you and your partner get back together at the end of the day, take a breather. Neither of you deserve a blow-up because you’re over-stressed. 

More relationship advice:

· Call for a fifteen-minute quiet session in your home. Isolate fighting children from each other if necessary.

· Treat everyone to cool, frozen treat to get the gang in a good mood, even if you predict it’ll be temporary.

· If you haven’t done some decent planning to deal with summer logistics, take some time out and prioritize taking care of this. You’ll thank yourselves.

And of course, being able to sleep without flannel pajamas and a big, heavy comforter is also a romantic advantage of summer…

Anger is expressed in countless ways and how you express your anger can rob even the happiest couples of their peaceful union.

The more intense your anger, the more likely the emotion will distract you from the issue at hand. Boundaries prevent you from going too far. They warn you when your anger is out of bounds.

Understanding how to manage your anger during an argument and establish a mutual understanding can help you work through issues during tough arguments.

A Powerful strategy to help manage and establish anger boundaries in your relationship is: Stay focused.

Action Tip: Try to remain in control of your anger by staying focused on what you are angry about. Keep your eye on the ball, and your conversation and emotions are less likely to get out of control.

When you speak out in anger, you may lose sight of the issue or circumstance that initially provoked you. Your anger heads off on a tangent, jumping from one grievance to another. What begins as, “I asked you to stop at the store for me, and you forgot,” suddenly evolves into, “You never help out around here. You don’t listen to me. You don’t care about me at all. I don’t know why I’m with you in the first place!”

Many of my anger-management clients describe horrific incidents involving anger. When I ask what started the angry exchange they say, “Beats me. All I know is one minute we were having a civil conversation and the next minute I was yelling..”

By staying focused, you will be amazed at how much your communications improve and how quickly you get back to having a healthy, happy relationship.
