7 Tips For A Healthy Relationship

Being in a relationship is no walk in the park folks, it requires a lot of hard work, determination and effort to keep that flame blazing between the two of you. Sometimes you catch yourself in a rut and those butterflies you first had are starting to fade but I assure you that is all part of life. Here are some of my tips that have worked for me! (so far!)

  • Go Hiking (Or do any outdoor activities together)- Grab the bull by the horns and get that lazy  bum of yours off the couch! Sometimes it's easy at the end of a long week to just plan to do nothing all weekend but there is a whole world out there! Take your partner hiking, go take a walk in the park, go and make that trip to the beach! Getting out into the fresh air and getting active can do wonders for you two, not to mention your health! It's nice to switch things up a bit.
  •  Pick a show and only watch it together- Now on those week nights when you just got home from work and you truly just do not want to do anything skim through netflix or hulu and pick a show that you and your partner would like to watch. It's great to have something that is exclusively for the two of you and that you can bond over! So get emotionally attached to characters, cry and laugh your butt off, I promise it will be a good time. (Personal favorites: Heroes, Walking dead, Once Upon a Time, Prison Break and Lost!)
  • Make dinner together- Plan it out! Go to the grocery store together and get to work. Cooking together is actually way more fun than you might think it is. It's nice to put in that team effort and make something delicious for you both!
  •   Have some me time- Now you should also strive to have some alone time. Whether that be a weekly yoga class, reading that book, going and grabbing a coffee or whatever your niche may be, you need to make time for yourself. You can be in a happy relationship and still enjoy having some independent activities
  •  Spend some quality time together- I'm saying put down that phone, tuck away your tablet, turn off the TV quality time together. Ask how your partners week has been going, what has been on your mind or just goof around and wrestle for a bit. It can be refreshing to put away all those distractions!
So ladies and gentleman these are a few tricks that have worked for me (happily together for four years) and I hope you found some useful advice!
