Important life issues, such as our health, leave their mark on our quality of life, who we are and how we position ourselves. But our quality of life is also determined by subjective aspects and by all the little things we do every day. We all have rituals, some conscious, some not, some tonics, some tiring. This also applies to a romantic relationship. Mutual trust, intimacy and passion are continually tested in our interactions with our partner.

Here are four simple daily rituals that will surely make a difference in your relationship!

Kiss each other

This might sound a bit old-fashioned, but a real, genuine, passionate kiss is still the best way to show that you love someone. Make eye contact and enjoy the moment. The kiss keeps the passion and intimacy alive.

Communicate even when you are stressed

By communicating, you can remove any insecurity and reassure your partner about what is going on with you. You make it easier for him or her to understand your condition, to help you or to create the atmosphere you need at the time.

When you are having problems or are very stressed, take the time to share your thoughts or analyze the situation with your partner, even if you may not immediately feel like it or think that it is unnecessary. The encouragement and support you will receive are well worth it.

It is important that you know what is going on in your partner’s life, but it is just as important that you understand and support each other, that you are there for each other and that you are on the same. wavelength.

Compliment each other

Everyone likes to receive a compliment every now and then, but the ones that come from your sweetheart are the most important. Complimenting your partner is the perfect way to boost their confidence and make them feel special. At the same time, it brings spontaneity and variety to your relationship through the surprise effect. It could be a flattering outfit, a special dinner, a parenting related comment (“you are a great mom”), hobbies (“to thank you, I threw you a surprise party »), Or many other aspects of living together.

If you have a hard time saying and receiving compliments face to face, think about texting! The important thing is that what you say is sincere.

Laugh together

When you laugh, your body releases hormones for happiness. If you laugh with your partner, you will anchor and associate this feeling of well-being with your couple.

A couple who have adopted these four habits, and make them natural daily rituals that (no longer) require no special effort, have a good chance to maintain a happy and healthy relationship.
