Topic: How Relationships Affect Your Health
Presenter: Mark Groves
Wouldn't it be nice if we were just born with the skills to understand relationships? To just walk right into love and know the right things to say and do? Unfortunately, it's just not that easy.
Most of us have never been taught what it is that goes into healthy relationships. We don't learn the ins and outs, we don't understand what it is we're truly seeking in a partner, and we're not quite sure how to ask for it even when we do know. We don’t recognize that relationships have an incredible affect on our health. Healthy relationships make for healthy people, and vice versa.
What does the science say about love and health? What does the research say about the value of relationships? What it is about healthy and thriving relationships that is different than average ones? And finally, how do we keep this love alive?
Mark Groves has a specialized interest in the area of Human Connection. He’s an author, speaker and sales consultant. He’s in love with science, psychology, and uncovering the mysteries of what makes great relationships work. Speaking of that, he’s certain there are no “secrets” when it comes to great relationships. Rather, he believes that all relationships are by design and we are all the architects of what we want.
Mark has a Certificate in Applied Positive Psychology and has written for Plenty of Fish, Thought Catalog, Goodmen Project and is the Relationship Columnist for 24 Hours Newspaper. When he’s not working with clients you’ll find him traveling the globe, playing in the mountains and ocean, or pretty much anything that gets his heart beating in the paradise that is Vancouver, BC.
