1. Apologize. Hug. Cook.

Harriet Lerner, PhD., is the bestselling author of The Dance of Anger and Marriage Rules. She also tends to wake up grumpy. If her typically wonderful husband, Steve, has acted bad the night before, he hugs her and says, “I apologize for being an idiot last night. How would you like your eggs?” The eggs, specifically omelettes, are the constant in their daily morning ritual. “He always gets cooking and, along with the coffee, this warms my heart,” says Lerner. You know what? I think I’m going to award him “Husband of the Year”.

Jason Kurtz and his wife get up at different times. “I don’t drink coffee in the morning, but she does,” says Kurtz, a therapist and author of Follow the Joy. “It helps her wake up, and she enjoys the ritual.

It’s a small gesture, but it’s always nice if you can start the day with a smile.”
