Widely respected and popular spiritual master. The Dalai Lama quotes, “Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive”. Keeping this insightful quote in mind, it isn’t simple to be in a relationship all the time and couples do have good and rough phases. However, with a little bit of mental awareness and some helpful tips, you can have a loving and caring relationship with your partner every day.
Today’s post will give you an insight into ten tips to help you bring in deep love and care in your bonding with your special one daily. So, without much further ado, let’s take a look at them below-
1. Open communication
Research by studies and relationship coaches have observed that communication scores much more over commitment. Keeping the lines of communication open with your partner is the first thing to remember if you wish to establish a loving and caring relationship with your special one. Communication helps you to avoid conflict and several misunderstandings that can build a wall between both of you.
2. Small things matter
Respect and appreciate your partner. Manners and being courteous is not limited to the office or professional relationships. Say thank you to your special one for the small things he/she does for you. In this manner, you effectively are able to enhance the love and care in the bond daily.
3. Exercise together
Working out together reinforces love and marriage. Research has proved that people who exercise together have healthier marriages and they are physiologically happy with one another as well. Studies by Psychology Today cites multiple studies that report the signs of physiological arousal (the “high” you get from exercise imitate the effects of romantic and sexual arousal. This means when both of you exercise together you build a strong romantic bond!
4. Take a vacation together
Opting for a couple’s retreat helps you to reinforce the love with your special one. At the same time, short solo trips also cement the bond between both of you. In fact, being on your own, having your own friends, meeting new people, and enjoying solo adventures empower you to a large extent, and this goes the extra mile in increasing the love and care in the relationship.
5. Eat your meals together
This is an excellent way for both of you to share and connect daily. Work and the daily chores in life take up much of your time and it is challenging to keep a healthy relationship running. When you eat breakfast and dinner together, you can start and end the day with each other. You can even have surprise candle-light dinners to bring in the spark in your relationships.
6. Watch a TV show or movie together
This is an excellent way to de-stress and share quality time at home. Both of you can choose a TV soap or a movie that both of you like and explore new movies together. You can cook or even order some snacks to make the experience something you both look forward to.
7. Cook together
Cooking in the kitchen is fun with your spouse or partner. Conjure some meals together and experiment with new recipes that you find on YouTube. If both of you are busy during the week, set aside a time for the weekends where you can plan on cooking your favorite meals the whole day.
8. Every problem has a solution
Life is never a piece of cake and so expect problems. Arguments are normal among couples but never allow differences or problems go unaddressed. Remember, every problem has a solution and so with this attitude, do not keep emotions pent up. Discuss what you feel about a situation or a problem and mutually come to a solution with it.
9. Maintain boundaries
When two people are in a relationship, boundaries become fuzzy- you often allow the other person to manipulate you into doing things you do not want to do. You stop honouring your needs and act out of guilt. You land up allowing the other person offend you without saying everyone. If you do not stop, the relationship can get abusive.
10. Enjoy their company and not approval
You must enjoy each other’s company and not approval. If you or the other person is in the relationship because of ego, it will collapse like pack of cards in no time. When you nurture an unbalanced relationship, it does nothing but drain you!
From the above, it is evident that it does take effort to have a loving and caring relationship with your spouse or partner. Keep the above tips in mind and apply them as and when needed- all the best!
