It’s practically instinct to pick up the phone and blab to your friends and family about what’s going on in your relationship. Yes, they help us to feel better from time to time, but it’s a recipe for disaster. The thing is, we don’t necessarily call them up and brag when things are going well, so they’re only getting the bad stuff. Then, the friends and family might have negative feelings toward your spouse and that’s not helpful in the long run. If you would like to talk about your relationship, hire a therapist or coach, they’re impartial and have been trained to talk about issues.
6. Learn Tantra
Tantra is an ancient sand script and means to weave. In Tantra, we learn how to weave the masculine and feminine energy so that we can understand and bring out the best in one another. I believe that Tantra is THE answer to experiencing a deeply intimate and everlasting relationship. Many people think that Tantra is all about sex, but out of the approximately 151 Tantric exercises, only about 5 are related to sex, the rest are teaching you to be closer and learn more about yourself and your partner.
7. Give them the last bite
Have you ever shared a dessert with your partner? As it gets down to the last bite, you’re both eyeing it with a watery mouth. When people talk about the “little” things making a relationship better, this is one of them. Give your partner the last delicious bite and you will leave a lasting impression.
8. Pay attention to the little things they like
We all struggle while contemplating what to get our spouse for a birthday or anniversary. Some people enjoy giving gifts just for the fun of it! If you could pay attention when your honey says he or he really likes something, not only will you be getting them something they like, but you’re showing that you truly care about what they say and that you listen to them and think what they say is important.
These principles seem very simple and easy and they are! By taking care to listen and show respect within your relationship, you will notice a significant improvement... even in the best relationship or marriage.
