TIPS 4 COU­PLES Re­la­tion­ship ex­pert Gad Krebs shares four key tips for a suc­cess­ful re­la­tion­ship:

Don’t lis­ten to ad­vice – ev­ery­one is dif­fer­ent and what works for one cou­ple may be dis­as­trous for you.

Never say “you never” – crit­i­cism be­comes toxic when a spe­cific is­sue be­comes an iden­tity.

Ask for di­rec­tions – con­flict is in­evitable, but don’t go on suf­fer­ing un­nec­es­sar­ily, seek pro­fes­sional help.

Don’t com­pare – cou­ples can look happy, but in pri­vate they’re not. Build your own hap­pi­ness. SU­PER SLIP­PERS These soft, light­weight and slip-re­sis­tant slip­pers won’t just keep your feet warm, they’ll also help im­prove your pos­ture and bal­ance. They have a built-in or­thotic that aligns to the pos­ture of your foot, and an an­tibac­te­rial mi­crofi­bre lin­ing. You can even pop them in the wash­ing ma­chine and dryer. Arch­line Or­thotic Footwear, $59.95. For more de­tails, go to mc­gloins-su­per­tex.com.au or call (02) 9836 1000. FAB­U­LOUS READ This is the story of a woman who feels hap­pi­ness has slipped through her fin­gers, and her tran­si­tion from bore­dom and dis­sat­is­fac­tion to ful­fil­ment. Her jour­ney to find joy and hap­pi­ness is full of es­capades and mean­ing­ful lessons as she trans­forms her life and re­alises her dreams.
