Have you hit a plateau in your relationship or maybe it seems less exciting and more frustrating?
Are the little things that used to be cute now annoying, or do you suddenly you find yourself having small fights? You’re not alone.
There’s a reason why people people call it the “honeymoon phase”. However, the “honeymoon” doesn’t have to end or definitely doesn’t have to be a phase.
To keep the spark alive in your relationship, it’s important to continuously grow together rather than apart. It’s also important in your relationship to maintain a deep and strong connection between both of you which evokes passion and love for years to come.
Previously, we discussed mixing this up. This helps keep the fun and passion alive, but it’s not the only solution.
Here’s something to add to mix. This is an additional layer of relationship advice that when applied will really create a sense of true happiness and eliminate any fear or frustration that may sneak into your relationship when you’ve hit a plateau or fallen into a routine.
Here’s what you want to do:
- Each night, before you go to bed, think of at least 3 things that you are grateful for or appreciate about your partner and/or relationship.
- Bonus points if you write this down in a journal or even in notes on your phone.
- Extra bonus points when you share it out loud with your partner which will make them feel especially appreciated.
Now challenge yourself everyday to find something new or different to be grateful for in your relationship or regarding your significant other. It doesn’t have to be anything MAJOR, it can be something as simple as “I’m so grateful you’re patient with me” or “I’m grateful for our morning snuggles”.
Can’t think of anything?? You’re not thinking hard enough!
When we flood our minds with gratitude it lifts our spirits and leaves no room for fear or frustration. When we share it, there’s a great connection we create of love and respect between ourselves and our partners in our relationships.
A great way to start the day is to share your gratitude in the morning as well. By doing this, you’ll start to notice new things, different things, and it’ll pull you out of a plateau, causes far less fights and spats and get you back into a honeymoon feeling because now you’re both looking at your relationship on another level and in a different way.
When you give thanks, show appreciation, and pour out love, it calls to our hearts to continue to love, support, and give to the relationship in even greater ways! So start sharing it every single night and morning and notice a difference between you two!
Looking forward to hearing how sharing more gratitude lifted your relationship!
