When you have a routine in a relationship, it can be good and a positive thing, but these routines shouldn’t become intrusive. Make the most of going back to work or education to inject a bit of life back into your relationship and rediscover each other. Here’s our advice.
Get back to basics
In a world where you can reach anyone 24/7, it’s easy to always have something to do, someone to call, a series to watch. Take a break and take some time to be with your other half, talk to them.
This is the basis of any relationship and communication is even more important when the relationship is romantic. You have to learn to get things off your chest and tell your partner when you’re feeling down or when everything is okay. Keeping things to yourself will only make the situation worse.
Take some time for yourself
We’ve said it a million times, being in a relationship and being with someone are two very different things. It might sound obvious but in real life, it’s important not to forget about yourself, even when you’re in a relationship.
Because taking some time to be by yourself and relax is healthy and is good for all your relationships with other people.
Do something together
Doing something different together can help you get out of your rut and keep your relationship alive. Plan a weekend together, take a dance class, go for a walk in the woods, take a cooking class…
You’ll soon realise, doing something different together will be good for the both of you.
