Everyone knows that relationships take a lot of work, but maybe it doesn't have to be so hard. According to experts, the secret to a happy relationship is the '5:1 Ratio'.
Basically, for every one negative interaction, you need five positive ones.
They don't have to be big interactions or gestures . . . even something like a smile or a joke is enough. You just need to make sure you have five good things happen for every one bad thing.
And this works for marriages . . . friendship . . . and professional situations. As long as the positive-to-negative ratio is 5-to-1, you'll be all good.
