Always Do New Things Together:

Sure, alone time is great but together time is where magic happens too! After a while, things can become quite mundane as you move through the day to day tasks of life and before you know it, you could end up in a bit of a relationship rut.

Instead, try to do new things together, exciting adventures or even take turns in choosing what you want to do and then do it together.

From pottery classes to dancing lessons, travelling to massages, anything is possible!

Create A Partnership, Not A Competition:

Regardless of how competitive you may be, your relationship is a partnership, not a competition. This doesn’t mean you can’t compete to see who wins the most rounds of Scrabble, it means that you shouldn’t keep score in a ‘tit for tat’ type of way.

Arguing about who does more for the relationship or who contributes more creates a competitive environment.

There will always be times where someone does more in a relationship than the other, because that’s how life works. But the thing with a relationship is that you always have someone to help you through, that’s why it’s a partnership, you don’t have to do it alone.

As long as you’re always giving everything you can, that should be enough. Don’t compete over petty things, create a partnership so you can tackle it all together.

Relationships are complicated, and as simple as it sounds to do these things, actually implementing them into your relationship can be hard work. But when you’re doing this with the person you love the most in the world, then it’s worth it.

Talk About Your Relationship Often:

Your relationship won’t stay the same, and that’s one of the amazing things about it. As you grow and your life changes, so too does your relationship. Which is why it is so important for you to talk to each other about your relationship often.

Use these as check ins, or ask if there’s anything you want to change or do better? Ask what it is you love about your relationship, spend time reminiscing about the past and what you’ve achieved together and always look to the future and to goals you have created together.

Plus, it’s fun to hear what each other thinks and feels about your relationship!

Keep The Physical Connection Going:

As you move through different phases of your relationship, sex isn’t always an option. There are going to be times when it’s not physically or mentally possible, but that doesn’t mean that all physical connections need to stop.

Physically touching the person you love triggers oxytocin, the feel good love hormone that reduces stress and does a myriad of wonderful things for us.

Stay physically connected by holding hands, cuddling, or literally leaning on one another.

Be Each Other’s Biggest Supporters:

One of the best things about being in a relationship is that you always have someone in your corner. Regardless of how extreme or crazy your dreams are, your partner should be your biggest supporter.

Knowing that the person you love believes in you is a massive motivation to achieve your goals, no matter how big they are.

Treat ‘Together’ Time With As Much Importance As ‘Alone’ Time:

When you’re in the early stages of your relationship it’s easy to spend all of your time together. Everything is fresh and exciting and new and you just want to get to know each other in every way.

After a while, it becomes clear that spending all of your time together isn’t sustainable and that you both need time alone to recharge and refill your cup.

Alone time is incredibly important. It doesn’t mean you don’t want to spend time together.

It just means that you know that spending time alone helps recharge your batteries, helps you maintain your individuality (what made you fall in love with each other in the first place), allows breathing space and encourages a closer relationship with each other when you do spend time together.
