All relationships are important. Any type of relationship in your life is different from the other. Intimate relationships are a very special, sacred kind. Now, they can either be toxic, or magical. Maintaining a healthy, happy, sacred relationship with your significant other requires effort and dedication from both parties, especially after the initial stages. Anything of utmost importance requires focused attention, learning, growing, and improving. If you are looking to improve your relationship, here are five things you can do:
- Communicate openly and honestly - Effective communication is key to a successful relationship. Make sure to express your thoughts and feelings openly and honestly, and listen to your partner without judgment. Set aside time for communication if need be. Give each other the time, space, and energy to do so.
- Spend quality time together - Make time for each other and engage in activities that you both enjoy. This can be something as simple as cooking dinner together or taking a walk in the park. For something more creative, create a date jar so you can pull from it each time for a fun surprise/exciting thing to do.
- Show appreciation and gratitude - Small gestures of appreciation can go a long way in strengthening your relationship. Humans value being acknowledged and appreciated. Partners in relationships are no different. Take the time to acknowledge your partner's efforts and express gratitude for the things they do for you - even minor things! Did they make you a cup of coffee in the morning? Make sure they know how thoughtful that was. Fun fact: this results in more thoughtful actions once your partner feels appreciated for doing them 🙂
- Be supportive and understanding - Life can be challenging, and having a supportive partner can make all the difference. Show your partner that you are there for them during difficult times and try to be understanding of their perspective. Sometimes, all they need is a listener. Practice empathy as being a partner too. Sometimes we forget, and may find ourselves being upset at something with our partner that we ourselves do.
- Keep the romance alive - Make an effort to keep the romance alive in your relationship. Surprise your partner with thoughtful gestures, plan date nights, and find ways to keep the spark alive. Make this a priority!
