It may feel weird. It may sound awkward, but doing this with your significant other for just 10 minutes can make a positive difference in your relationship. Would you be willing to try this week’s Tune Up Tuesday? It’s just a little nugget you can use to tune up your relationship.
I saw this study that finds staring into each other’s eyes for 10 minutes can produce a euphoric, high like feeling.
I’m in school to be a therapist and in some of the couples workshop trainings I’ve been part of, we do this – we have couples just sit and stare into each other’s eyes for 10 minutes and what happens is often pretty special… the connection, the softening, the sense of knowing and being known.
Maybe nothing will happen or maybe it’ll make a positive difference. And after all, it’s only 10 minutes, right? A pretty small investment, I’d say.
In addition to hosting mornings on B105.7, Sean Copeland is studying to be a relationship therapist.
