When it comes to relationships, it would be fair to say that there is always something you could be improving on. We are constantly changing as people, and so are our partners, so it makes sense that different situations will change and shift over time. What is important to consider is the fact that it isn’t always stereotypically ‘bad’ relationships that need improving or changing. Even the best examples of romantic partnerships need to be willing to evolve and adapt over time. Here are ten effective ways to instantly improve your relationship.
1. Turn off Devices
You probably spend more time in your own worlds, looking at your smartphone and tablets, than you ever thought. These kinds of activities are huge attention stealers. Why play Candy Crush when you could be spending quality time with your partner?
2. Same Bed Time
Get into the habit of going to bed at the same time together, rather than one going up and then the other joining hours later. Even if you aren’t planning to be intimate, it’s still nice to spend that time together under the covers.
3. Coffee Break
Never forget to do the small things like having a cup of coffee waiting for your boo when they get home from work, or in the morning when they get out of bed. It’s these small kindnesses that really bring out the love.
You can make your relationship stronger by having fun bringing up great memories from the past. It will inspire and motivate you to keep making new ones.
5. Work out
Work out together, it can be much more fun than you would imagine! It works on several levels, you are having fun together, indulging in a little competitiveness, and working up a sweat that you might want to take to the bedroom after!
6. Pre Dinner Dance
Put some easy fun back into the relationship by making a habit out of having a pre-dinner dance party in the kitchen every night. You can alternate between choosing songs!
7. Change up Your Sex Routine
Breath some life into your sex life by switching up when you have it, and more important WHERE you have it. Take it outside the bedroom for some risky excitement!
Don’t forget about the kinds of touching that you can do without having to move into sexual territory. A solid hugging session in front of the TV can be just as intimate.
9. Ask Questions
No matter how long you have been together, there is always something new to learn about your partner. Indulge your inquisitive sides by asking each other questions you have never asked before.
10. Say Thank You
Don’t take your partner for granted. Make sure to thank them when they need to be thanked, and you will find that the chemistry between the two of you starts to get even stronger!
