TIP 1: Set Time Aside
In the midst of busy lives, it's common for couples to feel like ships passing in the night. The demands of work, raising a family, and constant frustrations can tarnish the joy of a marriage. That's why it's essential to actively set aside dedicated time with your partner, free from distractions like phones, kids, or interruptions.
Lisanne advises making this a regular practice, even if it's just for short periods. By prioritising this uninterrupted time together, you create an opportunity to reconnect and strengthen your bond.
TIP 2: Focus Goes Where Energy Flows
It's natural to notice and point out our partner's mistakes, flaws, and shortcomings. However, dwelling on negativity breeds a toxic communication style and weakens the connection between you. Lisanne encourages couples to shift their perspective by expressing gratitude instead.
Take a moment every day to thank your partner for three things you appreciate about them. By actively acknowledging their positive actions and qualities, you redirect your energy towards fostering a more positive and loving environment.
Imagine the impact of consciously appreciating your partner for three things each day—during dinner conversations, bedtime rituals, morning farewells, or even through a sweet daily lunch text.
Maintaing A Healthy, Happy Marriage
Implementing these tips can transform your relationship and help you maintain a strong and loving connection. If you're facing any workplace or family disputes, be sure to check out Lisanne's Instagram and website at www.lifemediation.com.au. You can follow her on Instagram at @lisanneiriks.
