5 Ideas to Keep Your Relationship Healthy

Getting into a new relationship is always exciting – not being able to keep your hands off each other, meaningful conversations that allow you and your partner to find out new things about each other and create a stronger bond. However, if you don’t take care of your relationship, you will notice that, as time goes by, the bedroom cools off, and the conversations you could have about anything and everything turn to ‘What should we get for dinner?’. We’re going to look at keeping your relationship healthy today.

Keeping your relationship fresh and healthy, with a little bit of sexy, is crucial. However, what people seem to forget is that the effort goes both ways – both you and your partner need to want this. After all, what is the point of a one-sided relationship?

If you’re a guy, make your girl feel special. As dating experts from Beyond Ages notice, “Knowing how to make a girl feel special is knowing all about the little things. Because for women, the little things end up being the big things. They show her that you care enough to go out of your way to make her happy. When you’re in a long-term relationship, this becomes even more important. Healthy, thriving relationships require a lot of time and work. And women need to know they’re appreciated and loved.” But the same goes for men – they also want to know they are appreciated and loved in the relationship

So, how can you keep your relationship healthy and thriving? Without any further ado, let’s just jump right into it. 

Find Time for Your Relationship 

There’s no denying that one of the most common reasons why many relationships fail is the lack of time. In today’s fast-paced world, a lot of people have such a busy schedule that finding time for their significant other can be quite a challenge. What’s more, if the couple is married, they usually focus more on their work and children than on each other. They seem to forget that being in a good, healthy relationship can help in both of those things. 

That’s why one of the most important factors of having a healthy relationship is having time for it.

Don’t Take Everything So Seriously

In the adult world, where all you hear is ‘Be Professional’ and ‘Take it seriously,’ it’s easy to forget that life (or relationship) is not all about seriousness. Of course, there are moments and conversations in which it is necessary. But what about the rest of the time? Be playful, be goofy, be silly – make the relationship fun for both of you, so that you can take a break from the ‘Adult You’ and just relax with your significant other. 

The same goes for the bedroom – if you keep stressing out about whether it is good enough or not, and will try to make it better stubbornly, you will not find pleasure in it. Be fun, be adventurous, keep it light, and stop stressing out! 

Remember That Both of You Deserve the Best

One of the reasons why relationships don’t work out is because one of the partners starts to compare their relationship to others, or starts thinking that they deserve better. While everyone deserves the best, sometimes it’s not about finding a new partner, but rather about working out how you can make your current relationship better. 

Remember that OK is not enough – if you feel like your relationship is OK, or the sex is OK, it means that you have to work on it to make it amazing. After all, both you and your partner deserve it. 

Even if you are married, you shouldn’t stop dating each other – find new places to explore, get dressed up, and go to a fancy restaurant, take mini-vacations, and communicate. If you start to feel that other people have better relationships – communicate it to your partner, don’t keep it to yourself.

Don’t Be Afraid to Try New Things

While to others it might sound cliche, it is the truth – to keep your relationship healthy, you shouldn’t be afraid of leaving your comfort zone and trying new things, especially in the bedroom.

If you really don’t want to do what your partner suggested – that’s fine. Remember that saying ‘no way!’ should be enough. But you should explain why you don’t want to do it – maybe you’re not comfortable enough with it, or perhaps you tried it before, and you didn’t like it. Again – communication is key. 

Additionally, exchange some naughty texts every once in a while – after all, a little teasing never killed nobody.

Remember That Perfect Doesn’t Mean the Best

Always keep in mind that there is no such thing as a perfect relationship – no matter how long you’ve been together, your relationship is still evolving. If this is your goal in a relationship – for it to be perfect – then you can forget it. 

Unfortunately, in modern relationships, people expect the other person to be their best friend and confidant, support system, sexual fantasy, and so much more – having such high expectations often results in not giving the partner enough credit for trying. 

The key to having a healthy relationship is leaving perfection behind – you have to accept that the relationship will never be perfect, but that’s the beauty of it. 

Final Thoughts 

Keeping your relationship healthy is crucial if you want to be happy in it – after all, what’s the point of staying in a relationship where there is no thrive, adventure, or excitement. 

What we can advise you is to be yourself, and always communicate with your partner. And the rest? Well, the rest is up to you.

  1. Great article, especially in the heat of quarantine, lol! I think being cooped up with your significant other during such a stressful time can bring out a lot of bickering and frustration. Finding time for your relationship and open communication has always helped us getting over the bumps in the road!
    I would also add to this, investing in the other person. Doing things for them, building them up with kind words, or taking on some extra chores so they can relax are all ways you can show the other person you love them.

    Thanks for the tips! 🙂
