eZine #54: Ramping Up Resolutions—Review & Refocus Your Life

New Year’s Resolutions are nice ideas but they are often shallow and short-lived, going nowhere, helping no-one. But what if the New Year’s resolution idea was reframed into more of a time to REVIEW & REFOCUS. There could be something incredibly transforming about an annual personal evaluation and a corresponding re-purposing for the upcoming year.

This month’s DFR eZine feature article is about how to effectively set “resolutions” for 2019 and every year after!

Article: New Year’s Sex : Sexual struggles in marriage come in many shapes and sizes but most couples don’t talk about it. They complain, throw out their disappointment and criticize and even avoid each other as punishment for their mate’s lack of or insensitivity regarding intimacy. In spite of these challenges, research shows that the best sex is marital sex; the most frequent and most satisfying. What can you do to turn things around in the New Year? These tips would be a great place to start.

Podcast: Health and Fitness in Marriage: Dr. Dave Currie along with Wayne & Mary Jane Dahl, challenge and coach couples on the benefits of personal fitness and how physical well-being plays into marital satisfaction.
