Relationship Guide: Tips on improving your relationship?
Relationships can be hard, but we are here to help. We’ve referred to some of the best relationship resources and worked with our amazing therapists to give you some helpful tips on how you can improve communication and strengthen your bond with your partner.
Discussing your values – and your life goals – is an important part of ensuring that you are compatible for the long haul. You aren’t likely to build a lasting relationship if your goals are at odds with each other, so it’s best to tackle this conversation as early as possible.
Dr. John Gottman notes that happy couples share 5 positive interactions or feelings for every 1 negative one, so don’t be shy about sharing appreciation and showing affection with your partner.
Disagreements are normal, but it’s important for them to be constructive. Cool down, share how you’re feeling without assigning blame, and be specific about what upset you without being judgemental.
Support Each other’s Career and Dreams
Healthy relationships are all about building each other up. Make a list of each of your goals, discuss, and commit to helping each other achieve them together.
Listen and Acknowledge
Be an active listener when your partner is trying to communicate with you, and acknowledge that you understand their feelings. This helps your partner feel heard and valued in the relationship.
Know and Practice each other’s Love Language
According to Dr. Gary Chapman, the five most common ways people give and receive love are: words of affirmation, physical touch, gift giving, acts of service,& quality time. Learn which love language speaks to your partner to strengthen your relationship.
Be a team - Couple Bubble
Building a couple bubble simply means building an environment with your partner that protects you from negative outside influences. Within your bubble, you should each feel safe and secure, and that your relationship comes first no matter what.
Figure out recurring issues
Most couples have recurring issues – but it’s important to figure out how to deal with them so they don’t lead to more fights. Sit down and talk about a recurring issue when you’re both calm, and find a middle ground to solve it so that you’re both happy with the outcome.
