O f course, even the strongest relationships go through tough times so yours isn’t an exception, especially in this era of Covid where many relationships have been stressed to breaking point. Building a happy relationship takes work, and reviving your relationship can be even more tasking. That is not to say it can’t be done, but both parties will have to be committed to making the relationship work.
If your relationship has experienced challenges in these times, there are a few things you can do to revive it. These things have been approved by marriage counsellors and therapists alike, so they are sure to work their magic for you. However, a note of warning is to be patient as these things take time. As it is with most things in life, nothing worthwhile happens overnight. So stay committed, put in the work, and things would turn around in no time.
Check out 5 tips to reviving your relationship…
#1. Talk to each other
It’s funny how something as basic as talking can become such a chore. We get so
engrossed in work and kids, and ignore the same person whose call used to give us butterflies in the stomach. We have to admit that life could get pretty hectic and that’s why having a talk with your partner should be a deliberate effort. Remember that hilarious thing you saw today? Now’s the right time to share it.
#2. Just do it
Who would have thought you’d go weeks or even months without going under the sheets with your partner? Considering how you couldn’t get your hands off each other at the initial stage. Life and it’s unpredictability. Nevertheless, like Nike would suggest “just do it” because if you’re waiting to feel an intense form of desire before you have sex with your partner, it just might not happen. Sex plays a major role in reviving your relationship.
#3. Say the magic word
For couples who have known each other for a while, the emotions of your partner tend to become everyday occurrences, but this doesn’t help. Skipping little things like a plain old “thank you” and I love you would only make your partner feel unappreciated. So, don’t take this a day further and remember to tell your partner all he/she means to you. It can really work magic.
#4. Listen to each other reviving your relationship
If you have to become dumbo, by all means. Ensure you’re all ears for your partner as it’s almost impossible to understand a person if you don’t listen to them. We know you’re fagged out, but let her finish her story about how her day went or listen to his point of view. This is key in communication.
#5. Consciously create couple time
Back in the day you both used to love hanging out by the seaside, what on earth happened to that? How about consciously trying out something new every now and then? That new recreational center, restaurant, or karaoke bar where you can both sing yourself silly are great places to explore.
A wise man once said, “everything positive you do in your relationship is foreplay”. Keep putting in the work. Love conquers all things.
