Seven Ways To ELEVATE Your Relationship
Taking care of yourself first can help improve the wellness of your relationship.
While a healthy couple relationship can lead to better health, attending to one's physical, mental, and emotional well-being also fosters healthier couple relationships.
LAY THE FOUNDATION
Learn ways you can choose to make deliberate and conscious decisions about your relationships.
A strong, healthy, long-lasting relationship does not just happen by chance but, instead, through deliberate and conscientious decisions to be committed, intentional, proactive, and strengths-focused.
Create an stronger awareness of your partner and the relationship.
To develop and sustain healthy relationships, partners must develop and maintain intimate knowledge of each other's personal and relational needs, interests, feelings, and expectations.
Learn ways you can show support, affection, and respect for your partner.
Individuals who express kindness, use understanding and empathy, demonstrate respect, and invest time to be available and open to their partner are able to maintain stable, healthy couple relationships.
Develop and maintain your friendship with your partner to help build couple identity.
Being a healthy couple involves spending meaningful time together and fostering a shared sense of couple identity in order to sustain a close, enduring friendship based on trust and love.
Learn skills to deal with differences in healthy ways.
Problems and conflicts are a normal part of relationships. Healthy couples use strategies to see their partner's view, accept differences, and manage stress to ensure emotional and physical safety.
Identify ways that you can connect your relationship to others.
The connections that couples develop with their family, peers, and community offer a source of meaning, purpose, and support that influence the health and vitality of their couple relationship.
