Get specific about your needs

If you do have a partner with whom you can share responsibilities to relieve yourself of stress, it’s important to give specific instructions on how that happens. Dr. Louis says, “Sometimes women say ‘I just want you to love me more’ but men speak in more tangible terms. So sometimes as women we have to be specific [and say] ‘I need you to get the kids dressed in the morning. I need you to put the kids to bed tonight.’”
