One area in our life that we often disregard to declutter is our relationships. We don’t physically perceive the clutter, yet we feel the constant frustrations, anger, and other negative emotions it brings. For instance, do you always bicker about something? Get bored with each other? Can’t give each other enough quality time?
Totally throwing away the relationship depends on your judgment, but oftentimes, all our relationship needs is some cleaning!
Dusting off the Relationship Cobwebs
The goal is to transform the cluttered relationship to a connected relationship. That is to say, bringing back the (lost) passion, excitement, and peace with your partner. But, how do we do that, especially when you are a busy mom who is focused on tending to the kids?
The important first step here is noticing the pattern clutter. Problems in relationships are more often not communicated directly. Thus, it manifests in other ways. So notice that there is an ongoing problem in the relationship, and find a way to solve it. Certainly, don’t wait until the ‘clutter’ piles up and that mess irredeemably ruins the relationship!

- Clearing out blame, and making space for responsibility.
- Replacing control for trust.
- Clearing out the complaint loops, and making space for peace.

Now tune in to hear incredible pieces of advice to reignite and maintain your relationship!
