How Can This One Exercise Improve Your Relationship?
At the beginning of every relationship, we always have a positive view of our partner. We think that this person is the best! To most of us, this positive perception we have of our significant other is because of a magical sensation called the “spark”. However, as time goes on, why does this “spark” fade out? And, will this improve your relationship or affect it in a negative way?
Improve Your Relationship By Doing This Exercise Daily
If you agree with mentioned statement, then you know what we mean. As the relationship progresses, our perception of our partner changes because we slowly see their flaws and faults. Our eyes open and the sensation we call the “spark” gradually becomes something dull and uninteresting. Everybody goes through it because it’s something natural, but it’s important to keep the relationship going with or without the spark if you really care about the person you’re with.
This comes down to the exercise mentioned. As you can tell, this exercise we’re talking about is not the kind that needs physical activity. We are talking about an exercise that can change how you view your partner, in a positive way. Here’s how you do it:
1. Get a notepad and list down the qualities that you admired most in your partner during the early stages of your relationship.
2. Observe your partner today. List down three positive qualities you saw in your partner on this day.
3. The next day, read your list before getting out of bed.
4. Do this for the next 21 days.
You can list down anything from: being kind and thoughtful, to being a good listener. These are all simple things that you can easily observe and, then, add to your list.
This exercise won’t, necessarily, get the “spark” back because these starting emotions have always been temporary. Of course, your partner is never going to be your ideal type because, as humans, we will always have flaws – we are not perfect. But, if you see the good in your significant other for the next 21 days, you will see the root of why you were (or are) attracted to this person in the first place.
