4 Lists That Can Save Your Relationship

th#1

Before you drop that guy or girl due to boredom, examine how you are spending your time as a couple.

It maybe due to the fact that you have run into a routine just like Danielle Colley did which almost doomed her relationship.

What can help you get out of the rut is creating a series of lists that may put the energy you need back into the relationship and provide a closeness that’s second to none. A list like this can help remind you  what really matters, and help maintain positivity, clarity, and peace amongst the craziness of everyday life.

So as the weekend is approaching, you and your partner should sit down individually and create these four lists. By doing this exercise you may find some similar interests that you never knew you had. The four lists are as follows:

  1. Lists of Books you might read.- this list will give you different topics to talk about. You will get a perspective about a person you never expected when you are talking about a fictional story as opposed to what’s happening in social media.
  2. List of activities you would like to do together – according to a recent study 94% of couples  are happier when they spend quality time together versus 43% of couples that don’t. By having a list for activities that you would like to do will keep you from doing the same thing every weekend.
  3. List of new things you would like to learn – will keep you brain sharp as you progress in your marriage.
  4. List of places you would like to see – this will help you create long-lasting memories as you explore new places. Traveling to other countries not only give you the opportunity to see new things as a couple, it also gives you the opportunity to explore on you own.

 

So before you head out to another movie, or dinner, create that list so you can put that extra energy you need back into your relationship.
