6 Simple Ways to Strengthen Your Relationship In 2017
Here’s to happier and healthier love in 2017!
With the New Year coming up, you must have thought of new codes to follow and new promises to make to yourself and to the people around you. And if you haven’t, it is time you do. New years symbolize new beginnings and there is never a better time to start working on relationship than a new year. If you and your partner have been on a bumpy ride all 2016 and you really want to improve the way things are, we suggest you do these very simple things in 2017 to take hold of things. These are nothing but small efforts yet very effective gestures in terms of strengthening a mutual bond.
Kill The Temptation To Check That Notification:
From January 1st 2017, prioritize your real-life personality over your online personality. Try to live more in the moment and worrying less about talking about it online. This behavior will inevitably have a positive effect on your love life as well. When we are too involved in our phones and talking to other people who have phones, we unknowingly neglect the people sitting right beside us. Now that people’ can be your partner who may not say or complain about your ignorance towards him and the relationship but he will slowly pull away.
The emotional connection weakens that way and thus affects the bond. So from next year, try to kill that temptation to check the new notification and listen to what your partner is telling you. It is tried and tested; works every time.
Praise On The Face:
One more habit you need to pick up is to tell your friends the good things about your partner whenever they are brought in conversation. There are problems in every relationship and one blames the other in personal, but doing so in public only brings embarrassment and builds negative energy around your partner. They may laugh along but it feels bad. Why take the risk and why not tell the world about the good things they do?
You will not only be realizing how important their small acts of kindness are but also, your partner will feel proud and love you for making them feel so. Letting the world see only the good side of your relationship and dealing with the bad side one-on-one is the key to a healthy relationship (unless of course the bad side keeps expanding).
It may not sound like a very practical plan since you can’t keep up with gym alone let alone going with your partner. But if you do, somehow, resolve to work on getting a healthy body, you might as well take your partner in on it too to kill two birds with one arrow.В Not only will you be motivating them to keep going but also strengthening the bond with them by spending more time with them. The gym-class will see you as the hot-shot two who look so very inseparable. That will fuel your will to work harder on the relationship. Besides every other advantage, you will get abs and that just makes it all worth it.В – Continue reading on the next page
Hit The Road:
Try to save up for a little road trip in 2017. And not just once, hit the road with your partner at least once in two months because it is most likely to keep the thrill alive in your relationship. Travel partners, who see so many new places together, tend to naturally get closer. The spontaneity of a road trip gives birth to unmatched friendships and strong bonds which is all you need with your partner. Life can be pretty busy and you may not match schedule with your partner for dinner every weekend but one day off can be surely taken to hit the road.
If what you think has been keeping your energy down between you and your partner is your lack of positive attitude then work on it. Do whatever floats your boat. Get a good massage, get a makeover or do something with your hair. Do anything that makes you feel alive and back in the game. We keep our surroundings happy when we are happy so do not let that boat drown by your drowsy routine. On New Year night, kick away the hopelessness you carry with yourself everywhere and say hello to optimism and positivity. Such an attitude will help you through good and bad times and your partner will love to see you taking control of your life.
Prize And Surprise:
When making a budget for 2017, keep a little portion for little gifts for your S.O. They don’t have to be grand, just meaningful and filled with love. Be the kind of partner who welcomes you home with a plate of Pasta ready with a glass of wine and brings your favorite snack home when passing buy your favorite restaurant. Be that partner who does not need to be asked to do things but understands the small unsaid needs. In 2017, be the kind of partner who tries to strengthen the relationship with his/her small efforts.
