It’s the middle of the week and perhaps things aren’t going as planned, the pressure is mounting between you and your man, or you are just about to reach breaking point and feel completely exhausted in every way . Here are 5 quick tips to get your relationship and your happiness back on track:
1: Love yourself
The ultimate key to anything in your life and especially your relationships, is learning to love yourself wholly and unconditionally. This means not only looking after your health and physical appearance but also forgiving yourself, letting go of fears of failure, praising what good things you have achieved and nurturing a healthy and emotionally stable mentality. You accept the love you think you deserve, and if you choose to daily cultivate habits that grows your self-worth then in turn you will attract the love you are worthy of.
2: Keep your dreams alive
Don’t lose yourself when you combine a life with someone else, stay focused on your own dreams and desires. Share your thoughts with your partner and work out how you can achieve them together. Fulfilled dreams bring a sense of deep accomplishment and happiness. Don’t get stuck in a moment of stress of disappointment. We all get busy and fall off the horse occasionally, but it doesn’t mean we have failed or have to give up on what we want to achieve.
3: Be quick to forgive
Don’t hold grudges. Make the choice each time to forgive and let go of the past. It’s not about ignoring the problem or not dealing with the consequences, but rather it is a part of the process in how to deal with issues in your relationship. Holding on to bitterness is just going to create unnecessary stress and emotional turmoil. Forgiveness is understanding that your relationship is valued more over your pride or hurt.
4: Communicate regularly
This isn’t just about telling each other how your day went and what you had for lunch, but rather it’s about getting beyond the day to day stuff and really telling each how you feel and what you are thinking. The biggest lie we can tell ourselves is that keeping silent will solve the issues; open up and talk. Make deeper communication a priority in your daily life and watch your relationship transform.
5: Laugh more
Why so serious?! Loosen up, watch a movie that makes you laugh, dance like idiots in the lounge room, drink champagne and tell bad jokes! It’s not easy being a responsible adult, having a job, raising kids and trying to keep your relationship afloat and thriving, but it doesn’t mean we have to miss out on having joy in our life. Find what makes you happy and do more of that. Get out of the routine and start trying to initiate more opportunities of happiness and joy in your life and marriage.
