Honeymoon Phase Do-Over: 5 Ways To Rekindle The Romance [EXPERT]
If you long for the days when your relationship was new, Dr. Karen Sherman can help!

Now, I know that this idea is common sense and sounds simple. The problem is that you forget to do it. Perhaps it's really that a sort of mindlessness takes place. So, I want to suggest a couple of ideas for you to incorporate into your routines. When you do these simple things, it will show your mate that he or she is appreciated.

  1. Say "thank you" for the things they do — even the day-to-day routine things;
  2. Surprise them by picking up their favorite dessert;
  3. Send an email or text reminding them that you're thinking of them;
  4. Do a chore they don't like to make his or her life a little easier; and
  5. Smile when they walk into the room.

As you can see, none of these ideas take a great deal of effort, but they all will let your significant other know how much he/she means to you. And in the busy-ness of all else that goes on, it will really help to keep your relationship strong … and empowered!
