“Good relationships don’t just happen. They take a lot of work. In fact, when they are taken for granted, relationships wither and fade away faster than physical health does when ignored,” continued Flohr. Here are three steps to help improve and strengthen relationships.
Keep In Contact – In today’s information age keeping in touch should be the easiest thing in the world to do. However, because we are so busy running around, working, going to school, and running errands we often forget to simply reach out and just say hello. Let your partner know that you are thinking about them throughout the day to rekindle that warm and fuzzy feeling of being appreciated and thought about.
It doesn’t have to be elaborate. Even if there isn’t time to make a phone call, send a text that just says “hi, thinking of you.” When sitting at the computer at work, send a quick instant message, or leave a fun comment on social network pages providing the workplace allows it. Taking just a few minutes can mean a great deal to others.
When together, don’t forget to talk to each other. Of course, all couples talk when they’re at home. It would be pretty hard not to say anything to one another. A lot of times those words are perfunctory, a means of accomplishing the act of living together rather than any kind of real information. Ask each other about the day at work or school, and as important as asking is, make sure listening is at the top of the list of things to do while communicating as well.
Complement Each Other – Too often we think that how we feel goes without saying, but say it anyway. Tell each other that you love each other when passing in the hallway at home, when sitting on the sofa watching television and when leaving the house. Let each other know what is special about them.
Complement each other’s outfits and always note accomplishments. It isn’t just the big stuff that counts, however. Say thank you when a partner does something around the house.
Spend Quality Time Together – Most couples spend the majority of the day separated by jobs, school, or other activities. When at home it is easy to fall into the trap of doing separate things as well, although it is important to relax after a long day, don’t do it alone.
Find creative ways to unwind together, and add to the communication and romance of the home. A great way to do that and add value to the property as well is to install a hot tub. Hot tubs provide the perfect atmosphere for a relaxing evening together. The warmth and comforting water makes it easier to communicate, even when there are difficult decisions to make. The entire family can enjoy the benefits of a hot tub, and parents and teens can improve their relationships and communicate better while having fun in a hot tub as well.
