Daily routines, work and kids can cause you to get into a rut and forget to show your significant other how much you appreciate them and care. Often we don’t even realize that we are taking someone for granted until it is too late. It can take a wake-up call to get you appreciating your partner again, or you can make it a part of your weekly to do list to make sure you take some time away from your hectic schedule to invest in your partner. The rewards will be worth it!
1. Say ‘’I love you”
2. Help with the dishes
Pitch in and take a chore that your partner regularly does or nags you to do without having to be asked. It validates the work they do around the house and hopefully gives them a break so they can relax.
3. Treat them
4. Call or text for no reason
If you aren’t already in this habit pick up the phone just to say you are thinking of one another. Or if this is already a habit call when you notice a traffic jam if you are out of the house before them or warn them that it is icy out if you noticed.
5. Make their favorite dinner
If you can pull this one off as a surprise it’s even more fun, but this lets your partner know just how much you know about them and is sure to let them know you were thinking of them when you made the meal with love.
6. Watch their choice of movie or tv show
No matter what it is let them choose what they want to watch for a night and take interest in it. They may even know when the movie or show would not be your choice, but the compromise is one that will not be missed.
8. Eye Contact
This sounds a little cheesy, but sometimes we get so caught up with what is going on around us that we forget to stop what we are doing and look our loved one in the eyes and really listen to them. They will notice your shift in focus and feel important and loved.
9. Little Gestures
Think of a small gesture that your partner will appreciate like opening their car door or getting them a beer. These are little things that can go a long way to show love and kindness to your spouse or partner
