5 Simple and Effective Ways to Reconnect as a Couple

Every relationship goes through mountains and valleys. There are highs that make you closer and lows that test your commitment. This is all part of a relationship—and all a part of life. Life isn’t always great, nor will your relationship be. If you’re at one of those valleys right now, read through these simple yet effective ways to reconnect as a couple. Hopefully, they can spur some more love into your relationship!

Offer Three Appreciations

A small and easy step to reconnecting as a couple involves how you talk to your partner. As people get more comfortable in relationships, the compliments that came with the initial dating season start to disappear. Don’t let it! Try to start that appreciative and loving talk up again by offering three appreciations every day. It shouldn’t be a sit-down conversation but, rather, authentic little moments of the day in which you express your appreciation for one another.

Plan Some New Dates

It’s summer, which means there are plenty of fun date ideas to try. Don’t get stuck in the rut of doing the same activities over and over—or not even going on dates with each other to begin with. Instead of eating breakfast at the table, head out for a breakfast picnic, and then make a day of it. Try to start dating each other again and see how that can bring about more passion to the relationship.

Create Rituals

You know how you and your family have traditions you follow? Try to start those same sorts of rituals with your partner! Do something regularly that bonds you—the more, the merrier. Maybe it’s 10-minute bedtime chats, morning coffees together, Saturday date nights, and monthly weekend getaways! When you have those rituals to look forward to, you may even notice more connection and communication.

Ensure Healthy Boundaries

One of the important ways to reconnect as a couple may sound strange at first. We’re giving you advice on reconnecting by saying you should set boundaries? But boundaries give couples that necessary space to breathe and then come back stronger. Think about it this way—when you are constantly with your partner, talking to your partner, spending every ounce of free time with your partner, then you might not have much to talk about. But when you create boundaries for that time, it can give you more space.

The clearer you are about boundaries, the better for both of you.

Schedule Time for Your Partner First

In that same vein, if the problems you’re having stem from not spending enough time together, then you need to make a different change. If you’re both busy, try to plan your schedules for the week with your partner in mind. If you can schedule planned time with your partner throughout the week, then you’re ensuring that your partner is a higher priority than work or other activities. Part of setting boundaries is also about setting time. Make time for yourself and each other!

Hopefully, these tips will help you and your partner make it through this valley and up to the mountaintop. Of course, make sure that this relationship is good for you and your health, but from there, be sure to work hard at maintaining!
