A habit is a consistent and regular pattern of behaviour, you can either create positive or negative impact on your relationship dependent on the habits you practise as a unit in your day-to-day lives. While volatile relationships may look appealing and trendy, you create a relationship of longevity and more substance when you cultivate healthy habits on a regular basis.
It is important to pay close attention to the habits you and your partner have set in your relationship. If they are healthy ones that make you better people for each other and subsequently those around you, then you should intentionally create routines around them so that they become a part of the fabric of your relationship’s existence.
I think most of us can spot a genuinely happy couple (I always say body language reveals a lot about couples without them even realising it) but you know the ones you meet and they cannot take their eyes off each other and are skipping around in glee and mutual fulfillment. I am sure you have met a couple like this in the course of your life, they usually (whether knowingly or unknowingly) have cultivated healthy habits that give them the ability to enjoy each other, not sweat the small stuff and not drive each other into the ground.
It is vital I mention the obvious that no one is happy all the time, but in constantly carrying out healthy habits, you are guaranteed a solution to the down days, discernment in your relationship and great resolve for conflict.
Sometimes you will wake up on a high and spontaneous and fun events will occur in your relationship but that is not always the case. Most times, we have to be intentional and plan out our days and that next adventure in your relationship.
However big or small you plan it, you do yourself a great disservice when you expect great things to happen to your relationship on their own accord.
Ensure you are the best of friends, whether you start off that way or not you should always make sure that you build, strengthen and maintain a friendship within your relationship. Fun and romance should always go hand in hand, we all want a lover but sometimes your love tank is empty and all you want to do is kick it with a friend and chill, let your partner be one of those friends.
