Relaxation: How to Self-Soothe & Create Calm

Learn the simple methods for self-soothing and reducing stress.




The Relaxation booklet explains how changes in our physiology actually make it impossible for couples to speak constructively during times of disagreement. Then it outlines exactly what to do about it.
