How to Have a Healthy Relationship

People are often under the misconception that healthy relationships aren’t work. The best relationships are consistently working at being healthy, supportive, and fair to one another.

These relationships have cracked the code required to have open and healthy communication skills. They need to have some important talks early on in their relationship while learning the art of compromise.

One of the keys to a healthy relationship is to show your partner appreciation on a regular basis. This lets them know they are valued, and that you notice and appreciate the things that they do.

Here is a short list of ways you can show your partner appreciation.

1. Create “me time” for them”

Many times between jobs, children, and various obligations, it can feel like none of us have any time to ourselves. One sure way to show your spouse how much you care about them and value the hours they put in during a day is to create a time just for them.

It does not matter if it is 30 minutes a day where no child or adult is allowed to pass the threshold of the adult’s bedroom. That 30 minutes can mean the world to a stressed-out partner. To be able to take a bath, read a book chapter, or do some yoga, you will have won some of their hearts and affections.

2. Make a set “date night” each week

Another important way to express your appreciation is to make your partner a priority. Whether you are with or without children, set aside one night each week where the two of you just go out for a little while and do something together.

These dates do not have to cost money or be extravagant. It could be just watching a movie, or going to a sit-down restaurant for a meal. Regardless of the choice, it shows them that you want to spend 1:1 time with them.
