Every person can use positive affirmations from time to time rather than hearing harsh criticisms. Take the time to express to your partner how you feel by leaving compliments sticky notes in the bedroom or bathroom. Write a love letter expressing the things that makes your relationship great. Randomly give out hugs out of the blue to brighten up the day. These signs of affection will help keep the relationship thriving.
Constantly Celebrate the Relationship
Set aside some quality “us” time in a quiet place away from the interruptions of cell phones, computers and televisions. Create calm and tranquil surroundings using candles and play soft music in the background. Look into each others eyes when talking to one another and share a positive or funny memory about one another. Tell them how much you appreciate them and how you feel about the relationship. This can bring your relationship to a new level of imagination, adventure and spontaneity. Once a month, dedicate a date night where it’s all about you. Put on your best clothes and make it a night on the town. For a more intimate encounter, pack a lunch and picnic in the park or on the beach.
