The 5 habits of Happy Couples!

While most of us grow up watching fantasizing of a love like similar to Disney movies and listening to fairy tales on how they lived happily ever after, but in the real world relationships are way more complicated.

A healthy, strong relationship is determined by so many factors, including the personality traits of the partners, but also external factors. Our stress levels, psychological and environmental factors, emotions, life events, and current circumstances are all challenges our relationships need to overcome daily.
“A good relationship is when someone accepts your past, supports your present and encourages your future.”
— Zig Ziglar

While falling in love may be easy, maintaIning an enduring, healthy, and happy bond is based on hard work.
Everyone wants a vibrant, loving, strong relationship, and the good news is that you can actually do a lot to achieve that goal. Great relationships are no coincidence. They are based on certain values and principles that both partners are comfortable with and rely on.
And while every relationship is different, some of these principles do apply for most of us.
These habits are just a reminder, and you probably already know the importance of them. However, it pays to make a conscious effort in applying them more often.

Habit #1 | Talking to Each Other a Lot Improves Communication in Relationships

Communication is an extremely important factor for happy couples.

It’s a skill that we think all couples should prioritize.

I know from my own experience that learning to get through to each other can be very tricky.

But when it comes to communication in relationships (much like with many other skills) practice makes perfect.

And the good news is…

The best and most straightforward way to practice communicating is to simply keep talking to each other.

When this is a consistent habit, you will spend LESS TIME fighting and more being happy together!

How to apply this habit:

Never keep things to yourself.

If you have to communicate your needs, make sure to do it respectfully, without making your partner feel criticized.

Never blame or make your partner feel guilty for communicating their feelings.

Try not to lose your patience, and don’t tell them they are being “too sensitive.”

Learn to actively listen instead, and always create space for healthy and non-violent communication.

Healthy relationships are all about respectful communication.

Habit #2 | Treating Each Other as a Priority Makes People Feel Closer

A big part of feeling loved is feeling important.

Nobody likes to be dismissed and treated like they’re secondary.
That’s why happy couples make an effort to consider each other and the relationship a PRIORITY.

This means putting each other’s needs FIRST.

And seeing obligations related to work, friends or even family as SECONDARY.

Having this habit will make you feel more connected and stable in your relationship.

How to apply this habit:

Being there for one another and being supportive through concrete actions is essential to make a relationship flourish. That’s real love.

Understanding and respecting your significant other’s needs and priorities is the key to successful and healthy relationships.

Habit #3 | Making an Effort Prevents Taking Each Other for Granted

In the early stages of dating, people often make a continuous effort to impress their new partner.

They dress up, work out, cook elaborate meals, etc.

However, as the relationship progresses, a lot of couples tend to slack.

When people have been together for longer they often make more effort to look good for work than to dress up for a date night.

This is partially because they now trust each other and can relax more about their appearance. (Which is a GREAT thing!)

But it can also simply be pure laziness.

I’m as guilty of this as anybody else.

I spend most of my weekends wearing yoga pants and baggy sweaters…

But I’m also sure to make an effort AT LEAST every once in a while that I know will make Gabriel happy.

The habit of making efforts (even if they’re little) will let him know, you appreciate him.

In turn, it encourages him to return the gesture.

How to apply this habit:

When you consistently make an effort to make things work, you nurture the relationship and make it solid and special.

Keep doing nice things for your partner, like complimenting them, bringing flowers from time to time, or preparing breakfast — not only during the honeymoon phase of the relationship but even after months or years.

Be an attentive partner.

Habit #4 | Keep the Chemistry in Your Relationship by Flirting With Your Man

I think we can all agree, flirting is FUN.
Keeping the spark alive in a relationship can be tricky, especially if you've been together a long time. One thing that falls to the wayside quickly is flirting. Early in a relationship, flirting often comes easily. Everything you do feels playful and mysterious as you're getting to know each other. But when you've moved past all of that, it can be difficult to get flirting back into your relationship. It can feel artificial or forced to suddenly start flirting again — especially if you haven't done it for a while.
When we get to the comfortable, stable place of knowing we have 'secure' status with someone else, it's common to lose the playfulness that got you together in the first place,

How to apply this habit:

Schedule date nights if you're not making the time to be together, And on those date nights, do something new together to recreate the curious and mysterious chemistry like when you first met

The little things can make all of the difference. In this case, eye contact — especially with the left eye — can help you and your partner feel close.Make (Left) Eye Contact
Touch more
Physical distance can easily feel like emotional distance, so an easy way to flirt is just to touch more. “Touching re-unites the emotional bond you share.

Habit #5 Happy couples spend time apart

Happy couples spend time apart, which is a common trait of many healthy relationships
Healthy relationships always have this essential element in common: time apart.

While it’s important to spend quality time together, successful couples know that time apart helps each partner recharge.

It keeps things exciting and fresh. When you focus on your dreams and passions and have the ability to respect your significant other’s space, a healthy relationship can grow.

The need to spend time apart is often overlooked.

How to apply this habit:

Always make sure you and your partner make enough time to pursue your dreams and focus on other areas of your life — like your career or your hobbies.

When you have a fulfilling life, you bring positive energy into the relationship and massively contribute to its success.

No relationship is perfect. All couples have their ups and downs, even the seemingly perfect ones.

However, despite the challenges, all relationships have the potential to improve.

Using humor, communicating assertively, spending time apart, consistently doing nice things for each other, and supporting each other, are all habits that can make your relationship thrive.

And these are habits most happy couples have in common.

Healthy love is possible. It’s all about the desire to make it work and respecting each other along the way.

  • Happy Couples Seek to Win Together.
  • Happy Couples Encourage Each Other's Growth and Individuality.
  • Happy Couples Show Each Other Gratitude and Admiration.
  • Happy Couples Have a Sense of Humor.
  • Happy Couples Serve Each Other.

True love is real, it's just different than we expect.
