Even a few little changes can make a huge difference when communicating to your spouse, helping you reduce arguments and frustration. But most of all they’ll help you improve the state of your marriage. Isn’t that, kind of magical?

1. Wake up on the right side of the bed – The first 15 seconds of the morning will set the mood for the rest of your day. Make sure you are kind and loving towards your spouse when you first awake. You want a good day don’t you?

2. Make a grand entrance – The first 15 seconds you see your spouse at the end of the day will set the tone for the rest of the night. Great each other with a smile, hug, and kiss. It’s worth the 15 seconds to have a good night isn’t it?

3. Speak to be heard – It’s your responsibility to make sure your spouse can hear what you are saying. Be sure you are close enough for your spouse to hear you without yelling. You wouldn’t want to be yelled at would you?

4. Timing is everything – Make sure your timing is right and you’re not interrupting what your spouse is already doing. You do want them to be listening not doing other things, right?

5. Magically turn you into I – During a disagreement or concern, do not start your sentences with the word “YOU”, instead, start with the word “I” and you’ll magically avoid an argument.

6. It’s their turn – Don’t interrupt. When your spouse is talking show your respect and don’t interrupt. How can you be listening if you’re speaking?

7. Guard your soul – Guard the words that come out of your mouth to guard your soul from troubles. Wouldn’t you agree that the kinder words you use the better results you’ll have?
