The One Thing You Should Do Every Day For A Happy Relationship

Having a healthy, happy relationship isn't easy for anyone. Relationships take hard work and it's important to really put in the effort if you want to make your relationship last. When it comes to striving for a healthy relationship, there are endless tips out there that long term couples will give you. All of these tips and tricks are important and very helpful, but we've found that there's one major tip that all happy couples seem to follow. It turns out doing this one thing every day can help you have a healthy, happy relationship!

So what is this great secret to long-lasting love? Well, it's all about communication. The one thing you should make a point of doing every single day is talking to your partner. That probably sounds super easy, right? I mean, who doesn't talk to their partner every day? This is where communication really becomes key. There's a difference between talking at your partner and really communicating with them. How can you tell that difference?

When we say that you should talk to your partner every single day, we mean that you should strive to have at least one meaningful conversation with one another every day. A meaningful conversation can be talking about how your day was at work. It can be talking about something that happened with a friend or family member. It can even be sharing a silly story about something funny you saw or heard. Even if it's just five minutes of laughing and talking about something like this, you'll find that both you and your partner will feel closer that day.

A meaningful conversation is not talking about daily chores, bills, or any sort of argument. Sure, these are vital parts of communicating with your partner and they do need to be discussed, but you cannot count them as your meaningful conversation of the day. This is because things like finances and household duties are the common burdens of life. While essential to life, these things become nuisances in a relationship and weigh the couple down. When you make a point of having at least one real conversation every day that is about something meaningful, you keep the line of communication with your partner open. You can still see one another as someone that you can open up to and be vulnerable with, rather than someone you're just sharing your daily responsibilities with. When you can still maintain that open line of communication, you're just one step closer to having a healthy, happy relationship!

The 6 Most Important Things To Have In A Healthy Relationship

We all dream of having a happy, healthy relationship that lasts for the rest of our lives…but that's a lot easier said than done. So many of our relationships crash and burn, leaving us wondering what went wrong. What is missing from our relationships that causes them to end so abruptly? Is there a secret that happy couples know? Well, we're about to let you in on that secret. Check out the six most important things to have in a healthy relationship:

1. Communication

A relationship is nothing without communication. If you cannot talk openly and honestly with your partner, you might as well not have a partner. Happy couples can talk to one another about anything. This means being able to bring up any issues you may have or any things that you'd like to change in your relationship. You should be able to communicate your wants and needs to your partner for things to work out.

2. Trust

You must be able to trust your partner if you want to have a healthy relationship. If you can't trust your partner, then the relationship will never be stable. A relationship built on instability is destined to fail. When you don't trust your partner, it leads to endless fights and paranoia. If you want to have a healthy relationship, you need to be with someone who you can trust will not hurt you or put your relationship in jeopardy.

3. Fun

Ultimately, every relationship should be fun. Now, it's totally normal and expected for a healthy relationship to have a “rut” in which you may feel a little bored. In healthy relationships, this feeling should pass. You and your partner should always be able to appreciate  one another's company and do things that you both enjoy. This will make you never want to end your relationship or stray.

4. Respect

In every healthy relationship, both partners share a mutual respect for one another. You should always respect your partner and their feelings. Your partner should always respect you and your feelings. This means you do not intentionally hurt or degrade your partner and they do not hurt or degrade you. If you both treat one another with respect, it will lead to a much happier relationship.

5. Space

Giving one another space is a vital part of a healthy relationship. If you don't give each other space, you're likely to feel smothered and want to distance yourself from your one another permanently. Happy couples know when to give each other some space and do their own thing. This may mean hanging out with your friends or partaking in a hobby while your partner does something else. A little bit of distance will only make the heart grow fonder.

6. Passion

One of the most vital parts of any relationship is passion. A relationship without passion is boring and sure to end rapidly because both partners are unsatisfied. Sure, as time goes on you may feel a lack of passion in your relationship – but you should be able to reignite it. Happy, healthy couples know how to reignite the passion in their relationship by being more romantic or more sensual with their partner.
