5 Tips for Surviving Relationship Battlegrounds

July 03, 2015 2 min read

There are certain hotspots in relationships where the fights seem more likely to spring up no matter what you do. What are they and how can you avoid them? TRAVEL When you travel together your routine is thrown off. You're forced to sync your decisions and you'll quickly see how compatible your problem-solving strategies are. When things go wrong, blame is the first thing to surface. And that can lead to deeper issues surfacing. Suggest something to switch gears. Go for a walk and explore. Get a glass of wine. Use the novelty of the situation for bonding instead of disruption. CAR As with traveling, you're out of the your element. And sitting belted in side by side and staring ahead, you're more likely to feel comfortable speaking your mind. But car talk can lead to much more than you intended with, "Why can't you leave it on one A/C setting?" Once you're home, revisit the issues that get brought up in the car when you can face each other and tempers have cooled. It's likely something you need to address anyway. DINNER PARTY Some people swear their partners have a different party persona entirely. If your partner tends to start sharing secrets or flirting with other guests, it can put you into a mood that ruins the evening. Your partner may be covering for social anxiety and not know he or she is hurting you with the behaviour. Discuss it later and try to relax while you're there. Meanwhile, have your own fun. IN-LAWS Something happens to us around our parents. We move into old roles from childhood and often our partners, who were not part of that time, get confused about our attitudes and behaviour. No matter how intrusive or inclusive your family is, you must steal time away for the two of you. It grounds you both and soothes tensions to reconnect. WEDDING Sometimes couples start feeling gooey again towards each other remembering their own journey to love. Other times it's a reminder that everyone else's relationship seems to be happier than your own. Focus on the event and not yourself. If it brings up issues that you should address in your life, do so at home later. Have a glass of champagne and toast Love, because it's beautiful, but never perfect. Do you and your SO have trigger locations? What's most likely to set you off?   h/t

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.
We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it just takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Signatures are required on all orders. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
