5 Simple Tips For Relationship Bliss

Fairy-tale love is hard to find—here are some tips for keeping your relationship healthy and happy.

5 simple tipsOne of the most common questions we hear is, “How do we make our relationship work?” The answers are complicated, varied, and, after a while, can start to sound like muddled platitudes. But these commonplace sayings get repeated because they work. With this in mind, we pulled together 12 cliches that, in fact, reveal simple, tried-and-true advice for having a healthy, happy relationship. Read on and let us know what you think:

1. Mind your manners. “Please,” “thank you” and “you’re welcome,” can go a long way in helping your partner remember that you respect and love him and don’t take him for granted.

2. Variety is the spice of life. Studies have shown that dullness can lead to dissatisfaction with a relationship. Trying something new can be as simple as visiting an unfamiliar restaurant or as grand as a backpacking trip through Sri Lanka. Discoveries you make together will keep you feeling close.

3. The couple that plays together, stays together. Find a sport or hobby that you both love (no, watching TV does not count) and make that a priority in your relationship. Camping, biking, building model trains… whatever it is, find something you enjoy doing together.

4. Fight right. In order to have productive arguments, keep these rules in mind. Don’t call your spouse names. When things get really tough, take a break from the argument. Let the other person finish his/her sentences. Don’t initiate a discussion when you’re angry.

5. I’ll scratch your back if you scratch mine. No one likes demands (unless you’re in a BDSM role play), but everyone can appreciate a compromise. If you want your lover to do something and you’re not sure he’ll be agreeable, the quickest way to avoid a confrontation is to sweeten the deal. For example: “Sure, I’ll watch Monday Night Football if you take me to see the next movie of my choice.”

    One live event with 50 people at $1997 makes you: $99,850 per year. Pick one topic and digg it and master it. Research your topic, synthesize and share your own best practice on it, your perspective. Knowing and sharing what works and what doesn’t can go all the way up to $5000 per ticket. You can film the seminar and turn it into a product.

    May I simply just say what a relief to find a person that truly knows what they are discussing on the net. You definitely understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people have to read this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular because you definitely have the gift.|

    From my own experience I’m sure when we’re not motivated we can’t do the right thing. So this plays a major role. Thanks a lot for the tips!
