30 Seconds in Her Shoes
Take a half a minute to think about your wife’s reality. What is her life like? What are the good and bad things she deals with? What stress does she have right now? What is she hoping for, what does she fear? Who makes her life difficult, and who makes it better? Where do you fall on that scale?
Once you have a feel for her reality, ask yourself how you can make her life easier, better, or more enjoyable. Or get really radical and ask her that question.
Got it? Good. Now repeat this exercise regularly.
