Habits of Healthy Couples

Relationships take proactive effort to remain strong. Here is list of a few habits that help keep a couple’s  connection alive and well. These ideas are taken from Hold Me Tight by Dr. Sue Johnson, the co-creator of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. 

  • Holding, kissing, and hugging when leaving or coming home
  • Writing notes or letters to each other
  • Participating in religious events or family rituals
  • Calling each other during the day just to say hi
  • Having time each day to check in with each other
  • Keeping a regular date night
  • Celebrating special events like birthdays and anniversaries
  • Doing projects or learning something new together
  • Supporting their partner in daily struggles and stresses
  • Recognizing or complimenting your partner in front of others
Maybe you can pick up a good habit for your relationship.
