RELATIONSHIPS MATTER ✨
It seems obvious that relationships are important, but what we need to do to keep them nourished... that’s a big topic!
Here are two tips to keep in mind for long lasting relationships. (Romantic or friendships)
1. Respond to bids for attention! In studies of successful partnerships, the ones that stood the test of time were ones where both partners responded nearly every time. ✨
Attention/presence is the magic ingredient! It’s important to show your partner that you are listening to them and respond when they reach out. Let say they get home from work and say hello. Showing that you care about them is mostly about action... (ie. pause the show, put down your phone and make eye contact)
2. Commitment to the relationship itself. Let say that your relationships are@made of three parts; you, your partner, and the energy of you and your partner together. ✨
Most of us put out attention on the first two, but don’t think about that 3rd energy. This can be a game-changer for many!! If we think of our commitment to the relationship itself, we might be asking ourselves different questions....
What could I do this week for relationship?
- The answer is likely different than what you might do for your partner. ✨
Different questions yield different answers! So do ask yourself what you might do for your partner this week, AND ask what you might do for your relationship. ✨
