How to improve your relationship with your partner
1. Give them your presence
The rarest and most precious thing you can give your spouse to improve your relationship is your presence.
In my experience, this is one of the best ways to improve any relationship.
At the end of the day, turn off everything, your computer, smart phone, TV, tablet, Kindle, EVERYTHING that is distracting you from being here now.
And then share a few moments of presence with your partner.
Talk to each other about your days, your goals, your dreams, your relationship, anything!
Talk to them and be fully present in that conversation. Listen to them, make them feel understood, ask questions with sincere curiosity.
When you inject presence into your relationships, everything changes.
2. Set Goals (And Achieve Them) Together
Another great way to improve your relationship with your partner is to set and achieve goals together.
So often, it is easy for one person in a relationship to assume the role of “Go Getter” while the other person feels left behind or like they are simply along for the ride.
This creates a breeding ground for ego, insecurity, unmet expectations and frustration.
Instead, commit to setting and achieving massive things TOGETHER.
Set fun and exciting goals that enlighten both of you.
It doesn’t have to be financial, either.
You can set goals around health, adventure, spirituality, and even intimacy and s£x.
Couples who achieve together tend to stay together.
When you work as a team, your relationship will improve exponentially.
3. Communicate honestly
Most men don’t know how women work.
Often, men are completely unaware of their emotional states and internal frustrations simply because s£xes communicate differently.
If you want to improve your relationship with your husband, talk to him often and honestly.
Tell him how you feel. Ask him for his opinion. Always give him confirmation when he makes you feel loved and supported. And try to be understanding when he screws up (because we all do).
4. Express your love daily
Never miss an opportunity to express love for your partner.
Every day, try to find a small way to show them that you care and that you love them, even when…. ESPECIALLY when the two of you have been fighting or arguing.
The more love you express, I believe, the more love will come back to you.
Write notes, send dirty texts (your husband will love it), kiss them, hug them, love them, and do it every day.
Remember, “Love” is a verb, not just a feeling.
The more you express love, the more you can experience love.
5. Love yourself first
If you want to improve your relationship and create a solid marriage, the first place to start is with the person in the mirror.
If you don’t truly love yourself as your life depends on it, then how can you ever truly love another person
All great relationships start from a place of love and respect.
And that love and respect must extend to yourself before you can extend it to others.
So if you really want to improve your relationship with your husband, start by improving your relationship with yourself.
Take time to journal, meditate, read, and focus on personal development.
Do the inner work you need to do to eradicate feelings of insecurity and jealousy.
Because when you love yourself, it’s much easier for other people to love you.
