If you want your relationship to last as long as possible, you need to put in effort every single day for the rest of your life. If you neglect your partner, and treat him like he's just another man, then a breakup is bound to happen. In order to avoid that, here are a few things that healthy couples do each and every morning that you should start doing, too:
1 Say, “I Love You"
It doesn't matter if your boyfriend already knows that you love him. It's still important to say the words to him. Being affectionate isn't a crime. In fact, it'll only make your relationship stronger, so don't hesitate to tell him how happy you are to have him in your life. You shouldn't wait until Valentine's Day or your anniversary to get mushy.
2 Eat Breakfast Together
You shouldn't skip breakfast, no matter how busy you are. It's the most important meal of the day. It's also a great time for you to talk to your partner at the dinner table. That means that eating breakfast won't only help keep your body healthy, but it'll help you keep your partner in the loop about your life.
3 Kiss Goodbye
You don't have to have a huge make-out session every morning. However, you should at least kiss each other goodbye before you leave for work. It's a super small gesture, but it'll make a big impact. After all, the worst thing you could do is make each other feel like you're not needed. A quick kiss is a great way to reassure each other of how much you care.
4 Ask Each Other How They’re Feeling
The longer you're with someone, the easier it is to neglect them. Of course, you don't want that to happen to you. That's why you should make it a point to ask your partner how they're feeling every single morning. After all, they might not tell you unless you ask.
If you two wake up around the same time, then you should stay in bed for a little bit longer than usual. That way, you can enjoy the feeling of your bodies pressed against each other. It's one of the small pleasures in life that make relationships so special.
6 Watch Tv
If you have a little bit of free time in the morning, you should enjoy each other's company. Since it's morning, and you're probably not ready to do anything exciting, you should at least watch TV together. Of course, if you two are early birds, then you can venture outside and take a jog together. That way, you'll be improving your relationship while improving your health.
7 Make Plans for Later on in the Day
If you two don't have all that much time to spend together in the mornings, because work and other responsibilities get in your way, you should at least set aside a few minutes to plan out what you're going to be doing later in the night. That way, you'll have something to look forward to, even if it's as small as watching your favorite show together.
8 They Act Silly Together
Are mornings just not your thing? Sharing lightheartedness and not taking things too seriously relieves stress. Joking about anything will bring a smile to your face and will start your day on the right note.
9 Listen to Each Other
If you or your partner have a long day ahead of them or have some kind of stress on their mind, talk things through. It'll ease their nerves and make that big presentation or new job task that much easier because they know you're there supporting them each and every step of the way.
10 They Find Ways to Brighten Each Other's Day
If your significant other loves coffee in the morning, brew him a mug and bring it to him when he's still in bed or getting ready. If he's running behind, give him a thermal mug for his morning commute. It's the little things that matter most!
The more often you do these things, the healthier your relationship will be. Do you and your boyfriend do these things each and every morning?
