November 28, 2015 2 min read

Looking to establish a more open dialogue with your partner? Perhaps you want your partner to feel more comfortable speaking about their past with you, or expressing their emotions. There is one secret to making communication easier. Couples who experience a close bond and successful communication practice this.  It is known as 'active listening' couple active listening "[They] listen to what their partner says, rather than get defensive without understanding the partner’s point of view or where they’re coming from." says couples therapist Janet Zinn. "Active listeners respond to what is said." Being an active listener takes practice. Doing specific exercises help you learn to listen more effectively and understand your partner. The first exercise is to reflect back on your partner what you heard them say to you. Sometimes we filter what someone said with our own perception, but the key is fully listen to everything that is being said and they in which is it meant to be heard. "I’ve absolutely seen couples save a relationship using active listening. [Active listening] adds compassion for one another in the relationship, which is key to healing a relationship." says Janet.

Do not yell or speak over each other, but give each other adequate time to have a say and come a conclusion after each of you have stated their case. "It may be that one partner is more blaming, and then that can be softened and the partner can work on being open, so that it doesn’t elicit defensiveness. Finding out why we get defensive and bringing understanding and compassion to that allows us to be less defensive, and moves us towards active listening." adds Janet.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
