Have more light conversations

Constantly having heavy conversations after a long day of work can weigh you down. Make it a habit that as much as you deal with serious issues as they arise, you don’t forget to have fun in the process. The perfect light conversation always starts with ‘how was your day’.


Get active together

Working out together can do so much for your relationship than you can imagine. Dedicate one day in a week to doing some form of exercise together. Instead of your usual jogging, running or gym, try something new – a session of Bounce, or maybe some wall climbing. Sharing new and exciting experiences have a way of bringing couples more closer to each other.


Go on annual holiday trips

Taking an annual vacation with just the two of you is essential for your relationship. This way you get to leave all your worries back at home and just focus on nothing but the two of you. Couple’s getaways test your patience, communication skills and the ability to compromise. The more you go on vacations together, the more you perfect these skills.


Share sweet lil’ kisses

Nothing says I adore you like random kisses. This is just a reminder to your partner that you still find them attractive. Author of 7 principles for a healthy relationship  Dr John Gottman affirms that physical contact like random kisses and holding hands can change your mood for the better and reduce stress levels.


Share meals together

If your meal time includes watching tv or scrolling through your phones, then it’s time to make a few changes and your relationship will thank you for it. Use dinner time as your bonding time, your social media feeds can wait  for just a few hours.
