There are a lot of things that we all do that take away from our relationship instead of giving to it. The awesome thing is that you don’t really have to work all that hard to give your relationship a little boost every single day!
1. Do something nice for your mate every day. It doesn’t have to be anything major because it is those little things that mean the most. When you get up from watching television to get a drink, ask your mate if they want something to. Bring them home their favorite candy bar when you go to the store. Fill their gas tank up for them so they don’t have to leave early in the morning. Little things like this will let your mate know that you care about them every day.
2. Ask your spouse those questions that you used to ask them when you were just together and would stay up all night talking. Ask them where they want to be in 10 years? What they want to be when they grow up? Where they want to go in the world that they haven’t yet been. You’ll find that your relationship has that electric buzz to it that it did in the beginning when you begin asking these questions because some of the answers may surprise you!
3. Tell them you love them. We often go through many hours or days without telling our spouses that we love them in a meaningful day. At least once a day you should make a point of stopping what you are doing and telling your spouse that you love them. Tell them that you love them first thing in the morning, over dinner, or even send them an email while they are at work. Your telling them that you love them, while they may know, will make them feel good and also will prompt them to be more open with their love toward you.
As you can see, these are simple ways to boost your relationship. When you make the person you are with feel good, and you go out of your way just slightly to do it, it will have a big impact. Just try to put yourself in the shoes of your mate every once in awhile. When you do this, you will find that you are able to see yourself in a different light, which will give you a different perspective and allow you to be the very best person that you can be in your relationship. It is often the awareness that comes from trying to make your mate happy and gaining a new perspective that gives the relationship the little jolt that it so desperately needed.
