5 tips for a healthier relationship with your partner

Healthier relationship tips

Relationships aren’t always easy. There are rough patches, and demanding schedules, and sometimes you can drift away from your partner without noticing until it is too late. If any or all of those things sound familiar, it’s time to put your bond in the spotlight – patch up the holes and make it beautiful again. The path to a healthier relationship starts here.

1. Talk openly and honestly

To many people, communication is more critical than physical touch. What that means is if you aren’t able to discuss what is going on in each other’s lives, including health and wellness, it can be even more challenging to discuss relationship issues.

A critical difference between healthy and happy relationships and those who don’t is healthy communication. It should be possible to tell your partner about all of the big and small things that happen in your life.

2. Nurture a healthier relationship on all levels

Mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health all impact how we interact with those around us. But we need to remember that it isn’t just our wellness that can impact our relationship. Your partner may also be going through things that affect their ability to be close with you.

Often sexual health will change as we age, which can significantly impact how close we feel to our partners. This can be more difficult to discuss for men, but there are plenty of options to look at, like Ehormones.

3. Small things matter

We often take small things for granted – like if our partner makes us a warm coffee every morning, or they make your bed before you get in it. And these things have been happening for so long that you have forgotten that these small habits are being taken care of.

Saying please and thank you are just basic manners, but it can be noticeable when you let it slip. Remember to thank your loved one for the things you might have been taking for granted – but also don’t be shy to remind your partner to extend you the same courtesy.

4. Use the mantra ‘Not I, we’

Language matters, and when we switch our language to I/Me/They, we miss the opportunity to be inclusive. Using the term we mean that you see you and your partner as a team rather than two separate entities.

Using the term We may help you two feel more connected and satisfied in your relationship. Using we rather than I puts you in a collaborative position.

5. Novelty can help make a healthier relationship

It can be very easy to slip into sameness when you have been together for a long time; it can be very easy to slip into sameness, meaning that everything becomes routine. Routine is excellent in many aspects, but if your relationship is the same every day – it can feel a little less like a routine and more like a rut.

Everyone once in a while breaks free from every day and offers something new and exciting to your relationship. An unplanned day out, a surprise one, a little spice in the bedroom, a new recipe, or just something a little unexpected can be amazing.

  1. We have a personal rule, since early in our long relationship – Never part with hate in your heart.
    Early on, we had our first big quarrel. He had to go to work, and stormed out. I asked – What if one of us gets hit by a car and dies? Is this the last memory you or I want of the other?

    We made a pact there and then. No matter what irritation happens, we drop it when we part. We kiss and show honest affection. We can always pick “it” up when back at home.
    Thing is 95 out of 100 times, it was forgotten by dinner. The few things that needed to picked up went more smoothly, as both had calmed down over the day.
    It’s easy not to stew over issues when apart, if you are at peace with yourself and each other.
