Relationships/marriages are the eternal bonds made in heaven! I have never heard a stinkier BS. Relationships happen and sustain with an immense human effort which accompanies perseverance, adjustment, understanding, and lots of love and care. As easy as it sounds, it is equally tough to sustain a connection that begins with dopamine, develops with adrenaline, and concludes with responsibilities and economic, occupational as well as social commitments. Hence a few relationship goals could help you attain emotional wellness.
The pandemic has seen unforeseen variations in the relationship graphs of many families – positively and vice-versa. Nonetheless, a healthy relationship and sometimes lack of it is much needed for emotional wellness. Let’s address a few points that we could take care of to rekindle the lost love or give wind to the one that’s being ignited.
Emotional wellness and relationship goals
An open and unconditionally occupiable conversation is inevitable in any relationship. It could be an impromptu vacation or a drive or even a coffee date on your balcony. But the topic should be the both of you. Would you keep in mind to reserve your mutual belittling session for another time? (I’m sure there would be many of these sorts 😀)
Have a couple journal
A couple journal is a short notebook or a diary wherein you enter the best moments or the toughest challenges. You can read this out for each other weekly or monthly. Always make sure to give each other a little surprise in the journal. It could be as small as a rose petal or something grand.
The massage time
Give each other a massage. This need not be a coital experience. You can simply give each other a head massage or hand and foot massage. You can incorporate this during your communication sessions.
No gadgets or together gadgets
There should be a daily ‘no-gadgets’ session in your relationship. Read books together or water plants together. You could do any hobby that both likes or take turns for each other’s passion. Also, if nothing, have your gadget together for a brief OTT session. You can also bring youe interests together like reading books near your partner while he watches his show or vice versa.
You might not be living the same life as your parents. Respect your partner’s choice and understand that you are living in a different social setup than your parents. Never compare!
While these are a few tips to rekindle the love and passion in your relationship, there are some relationships that are not made or mismanaged in heaven – The toxic ones. No amount of rekindling works in such traumatic situations. Take help when needed, and if no help can help, step out! Because emotional wellness is the primary goal of a relationship. If it is emotionally draining instead you know better because relationship goals don’t mean that you have to cling on to something. It also means your goal is to attain emotional wellness.
