Couple Stress Inventory: How to Reduce and Eliminate Stress in Your Relationship

Just like any relationship, your partner and you have probably been through your share of stressful situations.

Unmanaged stress has caused tension, anxiety, criticism, and even physical illness…along with many unnecessary arguments.

Left unchecked, stress is a bona-fide joy-stealer!

Taking a stress inventory allows you to “reset” so that you can get everything out on the table (and on paper!) and focus on the issues that you CAN change, and release the ones you cannot.  Working as a team to encourage and support one another as you go through the challenging times.

This will make all of the difference, and change how you view stress because now you’ll have a system for working through stress that eliminates all the unnecessary worry that can literally bog your relationship down.

Watch as we share how to create your Stress Inventory and work through your stressors as a couple on this segment of the Real Marriage LIVE 👇🏼

The Personal Stress Worksheet is still available to all new email subscribers, so feel free to add it to your relationship toolkit by subscribing here: Sign Me Up!

We’ve shared this exercise with every couple we’ve mentored over the years, because stress is a barrier to intimacy, and you know we don’t like those barriers.

We hope you find this system as helpful as we do!
