Now, this one is science and human-love going gaga. Good food instantly boosts your mood, right? Well, science says that having a meal with your partner everyday brings you closer and is an ensured way to build intimacy. Drop by their workplace for a quick lunch or book them for dinner beforehand or maybe have breakfast with them before you both set out for a busy day of work. Now, imagine what a bonus it is to eat. WITH your partner! Now that’s a Win-win.

Travel: Solo Or Together

It is totally your call. But travelling energizes you immensely. So you come back rejuvenated and fresh. You happy = partner happy, right? If you both enjoy travelling together, that is great too.

It could be a road trip or a sweet couple’s retreat, whatever suits your mood.

Focus On Yourself

Do not forget to water your own garden. Your relationship cannot survive without YOU, isn’t that obvious?

As off the list as it sounds, it makes the most sense to be in this list of changes you need to make stat. If you don’t love and adore yourself, how can you expect it from someone else? Pamper yourself and focus on your growth too while supporting and loving your partner. Couples practice codependency to a level of suffocation! The only way to avoid this is to give that amount of love to yourself that you don’t have to squeeze some extra from your partner. Makes sense, right?

Don’t Ignore The Little Things

Saying the words ‘Please’ and ‘You okay?’ are often replaced with commands and ‘What is wrong with you?’ over time. Makes a difference, right? Holding open the door for them, buying their favorites too while you’re out grocery shopping or even downloading the latest episode of their favorite show for them to watch counts. Be nice to them. Why don’t we extend the same courtesy to our partner of many years that we do to a visiting guest?

Exchange Chores

Break the monotony! Exchange roles to better understand each other’s position.

Every once in a while, switch roles to keep stagnancy at bay! If you partner usually drives, why don’t you get behind the wheel for a change? If your partner cooks for both of you, why don’t you take charge in the kitchen every once in a while? This keeps the ‘balanced’ aspect in a relationship going well.

And at the end of the day, the most important tip: never go to sleep angry. This is a thumb rule for most successful relationships. Inevitably, couples end up in arguments. But letting it stretch for days is an unhealthy habit you need to keep in check. No matter how heated the discussion is, you need to talk it out before hitting the bed. Wake up each day with only love and nothing else for your partner!
