Relationship last long because two people made a choice, the decision to keep it, to fight for it and to work hard for it.
Maintaining healthy relationship needs lots of efforts and those who are not willing to make sacrifice are the one who generally fails to be a good partner.
To maintain a healthy relationship you don’t really need a complex process to follow, all you need is a real intention to make it work.
Before talking about the healthy relationship it’s important to understand the true meaning of the healthy relationship. A healthy relationship means a relation which contains the sense of satisfaction.
We all need to make few efforts to grow the healthy relationship. Let’s explore the tips to maintain a healthy relationship.
Don’t argue over money
Arguing over money is the worst thing that happens to any relationship, arguing over money proves there is no understanding between the partners and both have different future plans.
Money is a matter that needs to be sorted on the top priority of any relationship, whether you believe it or not money is the main pillar of our life, and without right management of money, you definitely can’t go smoothly in your relationship. If you haven’t discussed your spending patterns, savings, investments and future planning then you should do it now.
Show your affection daily
Showing your affection, not just about sex, it’s about showing you care. A good random hug or kiss on a forehead can work well.
Support each other
Support is another most important element of the successful relationship. There are a lot of ways through which you can develop emotional support within your relationship.
- Complement your partner in front of other people; it gives them a feeling of satisfaction.
- Say “I love you”, sometimes frank display of love is what your partner is craving for. Let your partner know that you love her/him.
- Gifts play a powerful role in the display of love, it’s just a gesture that speaks allot about self.
- Never ignore your partner, being ignorant can lead to ruining of relationship.
Never sleep angry
No matter how bad your day went, sort the issue before you go for a sleep. One of the most common traits of a healthy relationship is they never hold grudged and dissatisfaction for each other.
Spend some quality time
Spending some quality time alone plays a big role in any relationship; it is time when you try to establish a better connection with your partner.
To spend a quality time you can just plan a random date or backpack for a holiday. Due to the active lifestyle, it gets difficult for the couples to spend some quality time with each other. Spending some alone quality time can help in revitalizing your relationship and re-establish the broken thread of your relationships.
Appreciation is an art that you all need to learn if you are trying to maintain a healthy relationship.
Appreciation brings a sense of satisfaction for the sacrifices your partner is making for you, appreciation is a way to say thank you for their support.
Listening is a powerful tool that can improve any relationship, most of the relationship fails because of lack of communication, lack of communication occurs because of bad listening habit. Here are some tips to improve your listening habits.
- While having a conversation with your partner, maintain good eye contact and have your face towards them.
- Try to be attentive and relaxed.
- Concentrate on what the partner is saying instead of that would be your next response.
- Don’t interrupt in the mid of sentence.
- Never pre-judge the statement.
Every time you find yourself into a problem what is your first reaction towards it?
Is it “oh my god, how can I get myself into a horrible situation” or “I have successfully dealt with this kind of situation and I can do it again!”
Having a positive mindset plays a very important role in the relationship; it is going to be the deciding factor whether your relationship is going to be easy going or a mess.
Negativity is a kind of addiction, once you get into negative thoughts you get deeper into it, being positive helps you deal with the negative situation in a healthier way.
Be an asset
In my long career as a relationship counselor, I have seen couples were not just a liability to their partner. It’s not about how much money you earn, it’s about acting as a burden to your partner.
Try to establish yourself as an asset for your partner, an asset that he/she should be proud of.
You don’t need to earn millions to be an asset; simple personality traits like caring for a partner, supporting and being sensitive towards partner are big qualities that can transform you into an asset.
Respect each other
Respect is more important than anything else in a relationship; your beauty is going to fade away. Respect for each other is the only aspect through which you can establish a strong and positive relationship.
