COVID Toolkit

March 24,2020

Like everyone else in the world, Xander and I are still coming to grips with the new uncertain reality we’re living in. 

But the one thing we are absolutely certain of is that we’re 100% committed to supporting your relationship during the Coronavirus crisis, so we’re sharing two brand new, free resources for you. 

We’ve been seeing all kinds of articles talking about how divorce rates are skyrocketing in China because relationships just couldn’t handle the stress of the Coronavirus. 

Closer to home, we’re hearing about the struggles facing our closest friends as their relationships get pushed to the limits by stress, social isolation, and overwhelm.

We are deeply, fiercely committed to helping you protect your love.

And we genuinely believe it’s possible for your relationship to not only survive during these trying times, but to thrive.

So we want you to have the tools and support you need to manage all of the stress and uncertainty, and come out the other end of this even stronger than you were before. 

So here’s what we have for you today:

Relationship Resource #1: Love In The Time Of Social Distancing

This is a recording of the free group coaching call we hosted last week. 

Xander and I might be new to social distancing, but we’ve been working together from home for the last five years, so we’ve learned a lot about what to do (and what not to do) to stay sane in close quarters.

We answered questions like:

And let us know if you would like us to do more calls like this in the future!

Relationship Resource #2: The Simple Daily Check-In Every Couple Needs To Be Doing Right Now

I woke up in the middle of the night on Friday with the idea for this resource – a 5-question check-in that you and your partner should be doing every single day to manage stress and anxiety, build connection and intimacy, and keep your partnership solid.

It takes just a few minutes to do, and should hopefully feel pretty damn good most days!
