While they shouldnā€™t be hard work all the time, every relationship could benefit from a little TLC every now and again, and I donā€™t just mean Valentineā€™s Day.

Want to know what relationship counselors advise?

Here are their top tips on how to refresh your relationshipā€¦

1. Communicationā€¦

Yep, so we all know communication is important.

Do something you wouldn't try before, cooking class or hiking somewhere. Also little competition can get some sparks flying

Take a day and/or night off from each other - go out with your girlfriends, let him go out with the guys. When you both are reunited at the end of it, talk about what you did. Doing separate activities, then coming back together, gives you the space everyone needs every once in a while *and* it'll give you new things to talk about.
