How Upgrading Your Emotional Intelligence Can Improve Your Romantic Relationships

Emotional intelligence is probably a term you’ve heard many times, but have you ever stopped to think about how much it affects your relationships? The truth is, most of us are much more comfortable talking about the physical aspects of life, rather than the emotional stuff. But, that’s not because we aren’t capable of it, it’s just because we’ve never been taught how.

Gaining an understanding of our emotional intelligence is an imperative (and often neglected) part of building healthy, loving relationships.

If you and your partner:

continually have the same recurring arguments;
get stuck obsessing about the details of what happened instead moving forward in your conversations; and/or
are unable to come together to find solutions that actually improve your relationship…

…then it’s probably time to upgrade your emotional intelligence toolbox. Join Tom & me this week in the Love Shack where will share exactly what you need to do to start taking care of your emotional well-being and feeling better, so that you can show up better.
