Happy relationships don’t spring out of the blues, it is the result of two committed people who know that love is necessary but isn’t enough to keep them together.
Couples in such relationships develop good, healthy habits and stick to them. They make an effort each day and whenever they get out of line, they work towards avoiding such mistakes. These good habits when mastered, make happy couples who can stay together.
Inspired by Lifehack, here are 5 habits of a happy relationship
1. Couples never stop saying good things about each other to other people
Saying positive things about your partner to others helps your relationship better. It deepens the connection between you and your partner. Telling others bad things about your partner does the opposite, destroys the relationship and creates a serious disconnection and lack of respect.
2. Appreciating your partner everyday
Appreciation is as important as breathing, do it every day. It is one powerful habit couples must learn to do.
3. Showing respect to your partner
Respect is a very necessary habit in any relationship. Putting your partner and throwing respect out the window is a recipe for disaster in your relationship. It’s normal to disagree but never stop showing disrespect for each other when it happens.
4. Working on your long and short term goals together as a team
Everyone in a relationship has a goal and in order to focus, they’ll need the help of their partners. Couples need to set goals for themselves as individuals and as a couple, and then focus on accomplishing those goals irrespective of what the society says. It creates a better bond especially in marriages.
5. Speaking each other’s love language everyday
Happy couples take time to know how, where and when they feel most loved. Every couple has a love language, knowing and practicing it every day breeds more love, happiness, affection and warmth.
