It's never a bad time to try and cultivate more love and intimacy in your relationship - Valentine's Day seems like an especially appropriate time.
The idea of "cultivating intimacy" sounds like a daunting task, right? Well it doesn't have to be. You can start with a few simple habits. Maybe you even do these things already.
- Express gratitude toward your partner. Maybe they didn't do their dishes, but they did fold the laundry, so that's something right?
- Focus on what's working, don't look for problems. Why hold a magnifying glass up to every issue when you could magnify everything you love about your partner instead?
- Notice your urge to nag and control. Nagging is about control, but it's also a habit you can break. Give your partner a little more credit. (Easier said than done, right?)
