Relationships. I’m sure we all wish they were easier. Maybe even a single solution to all relationship challenges could be helpful too. However, this is far from the truth. Strong and healthy relationships require constant work and time, but if done right, they can bring about a great partnership. According to www.bustle.com, there are 10 habits of strong and healthy relationships:
1. Communication. Having an open and honest communication is critical here. Don’t sweep issues under the rug. Bring them into the light, face the un-comfortableness, and talk it out.
2. Respect. Having respect for your partner is also important. Also, be sure to watch what you say to your partner. Negativity towards them shows a lack of respect.
3. Quality time, not quantity. Make your interactions matter. Put your relationship in situations where a deep connection can be created.
4. Time apart is also very important. Make sure you don’t spend every waking moment with this person. Set time aside for your interests, hobbies, and activities.
5. Learn your partner’s love language and attend to that. They include: words of affirmation, receiving gifts, quality time, acts of service, and physical touch.
6. Be sure to show your appreciation. Make sure they know they are valued in your life
7. Don’t focus on their negatives. We all have positives and negatives about us. Try and keep this balance in your head.
8. Choose your battles. You don’t have to always have to be right. Sometimes it might just be best to let your partner take the win.
9. Keep your sex life alive and well. Be creative in the bedroom, or out...and continue to mix it up.
10. Don’t play the comparison game. Nothing quite looks as it seems and trying to compare your partner to another’s is a fruitless and dangerous task.
