Dear Husband, I know that you try your best to bring a smile to my face whenever I’m down. It could be my frustrating boss, unsatisfactory job, the insane traffic or just boredom that could lead me into unhappiness. Here are a few pointers, so you know exactly how to help me the next time I’m sad or tired.
1.Cook my favorite dish

2.Just listen to me.
Sometimes just listening to me helps. I might just want to rant about anything and everything in the world, and having you give me a patient ear will definitely reduce my woes.

Take me out on a long drive to someplace away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The peace will not only ease my mind, but give me a much-needed break from the everyday monotony. After all, travel is therapy!

Some romantic lights, some soothing music, a good candle light dinner at a cute restaurant, and you’re good to go. A good romance has all the healing power!
