10 Habits Of Happy Couples | Truth | Everyone Needs To Practice

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

1. Go to bed at the same time
Remember the beginning of your relationship, when you couldn’t wait to go to bed with each other to make love? Happy couples resist the temptation to go to bed at different times. They go to bed at the same time, even if one partner wakes up later to do things while their partner sleeps. And when their skins touch it still causes each of them to tingle unless one or both are too completely exhausted to feel sexually excited.

2. Cultivate common interests
After the passion settles down, it’s common to realize that you have few interests in common. But don’t minimize the importance of activities you can do together that you both enjoy. If common interests are not present, happy couples develop them. At the same time, be sure to cultivate interests of your own; this will make you more interesting to your mate and prevent you from appearing too dependent.

3. Walk hand in hand or side by side
Rather than one partner lagging or dragging behind the other, happy couples walk comfortably hand in hand or side by side. They know it’s more important to be with their partner than to see the sights along the way.

4. Make trust and  forgiveness your default mode
If and when they have a disagreement or argument, and if they can’t resolve it, happy couples default to trusting and forgiving rather than distrusting and begrudging.

5. Focus more on what your partner does right than what he or she does wrong
If you look for things your partner does wrong, you can always find something. If you look for what he or she does right, you can always find something, too. It all depends on what you want to look for. Happy couples accentuate the positive.

6. Hug each other as soon as you see each other after work
Our skin has a  memory of “good touch” (loved), “bad touch” (abused) and “no touch” (neglected). Couples who say hello with a hug keep their skin bathed in the “good touch,” which can inoculate your spirit against anonymity in the world.

7. Say “I love you” and “Have a good day” every morning
This is a great way to buy some patience and tolerance as each partner sets out each day to battle traffic jams, long lines and other annoyances.

8. Say “Good night” every night, regardless of how you feel
This tells your partner that, regardless of how upset you are with him or her, you still want to be in the relationship. It says that what you and your partner have is bigger than any single upsetting incident.

9. Do a “weather” check during the day
Call your partner at home or at work to see how his or her day is going. This is a great way to adjust expectations so that you’re more in sync when you connect after work. For instance, if your partner is having an awful day, it might be unreasonable to expect him or her to be enthusiastic about something good that happened to you.

10. Be proud to be seen with your partner
Happy couples are pleased to be seen together and are often in some kind of affectionate contact — hand on hand or hand on shoulder or knee or back of neck. They are not showing off but rather just saying that they belong with each other.

Love Is | Casey Niestat + His Girl… Candice | Married x2

Saturday, January 4th, 2014

There are many types of love with different strength inside different relationships that may have dynamics that are close to yours you have now or in the past or could be completely different than Casey + Candice.

They are together again.


It makes me happy.  It’s hard to describe but I only know them through social media and through Casey’s video’s on YouTube.  I admire Casey and how he lives his life.

I love how he documents so many things about his life.  It’s 12:20am and I’m going to watch his little video he made about her and how he was trying to save his relationship with her.  They have had their ups and down’s.

Here is a shorter video of a little weekend away to K-Land on the West Coast.

Here is another video of him surprising her in South Africa on New Year’s Eve on a whim and showing up at her parents house to surprise her.

I want to make some short films like how Casey does.  I want “Final Cut Pro” on my computer to edit them.  He inspired me to shoot more video of my kids and my daily life.  I need to do more of this.

My Candice is gone.  That’s ok.  I can accept that.
