7 Things Happy Couples Do Differently

All intimate relationships are made of a balanced winning recipe of trust, honesty and attraction. Happy couples do all this and even more, just like magic dust, to keep their love thriving and the flame burning for a very long time to come. The one thing all couples should remember is that love is not about finding the right person, it is actually about working with this person to create the right relationship for both of you. The couples that are able to turn things around successfully are the ones who can create loving and lasting relationships. Here are some of the things they do: 1. Time for one another. The worst form of abuse a relationship can go through is neglect or the lack of attention. Time spent together is the oxygen every couple needs and when you starve a relationship off this oxygen, you are basically giving it a slow death. We often underestimate the power of a kind word of appreciation, a thoughtful question asking after your partner’s day or a listening ear that is focused. This very simple act of caring can turn a relationship around from neglect to care. We don’t realize that when we pay attention to each other, we are actually breathing new life into each other too. This attention and affection is what a relationship needs to flourish and grow strong. To summarize: Stay in touch with your partner’s life and communicate openly. Call your partner in the middle of the day just to tell him or her that you love them. The result is worth the extra effort you take. 2. Being straightforward. No matter how sure you are about your partner’s love, it is always nice to be reminded of it with a few loving words and a loving gesture. When you truly love someone, it should reflect in your littlest of deeds. Don’t beat around the bush when you want to show your love, be straightforward. If you appreciate what your partner did for you today, tell them. If you adore your partner today, tell them. If you are hurt, tell them. Hearts often get confused and upset when left on their own thinking devices. Express your love everyday. 3. Meeting half way. The most important and sometimes the most difficult trip you both will make together is meeting your partner half way. Rather than working alone or against your partner, work with them by meeting them half way. Healthy and successful relationships are all about teamwork and compromise. 4. Actions that back up claims of love. Actions always speak louder than words. Act like you love your partner when you claim that you do. The way you treat your partner speaks your love louder than words ever can. You can say ‘I love you’ everyday, but if your actions don’t prove your words, your words are meaningless. Make a habit of showing your love. 5. Focus on what you like about your partner. The power of your thoughts …

Happiness – Choice or Circumstances?

“Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be!”  Abraham Lincoln An elusive state of mind, yet the most sought after by each of the living mortals, happiness is something everyone yearns for. Sadly enough, only a few with the right perspectives in life manage to feel the real contentment that comes from being truly happy. So, is happiness merely a result of your circumstances or can you actually make a conscious choice to be happy in life? The very fact that your circumstances are often beyond your control tells you that you cannot depend on them for your joy in life. Whether in sunny or in rainy days, being happy is a conscious, righteous and a very personal choice you can make. Questions to ask Before I set out to show how exactly to be happy is a choice you can make, just ask yourself a few crucial questions as below: So when exactly do you say you are ‘happy’? When you have the right circumstances? When you have all that you want? When you are doing what you really want to do in life? When you are healthy, have money and/or have a family? Well, the list could just go on! For all of us who always thought happiness is something that comes to us when all is well in our lives, its perhaps time to think again. Check out the 5 key facts which redefine the very concept of being happy in life. THE 5 KEY FACTS 1. It’s an attitude   Staying happy with yourself and your surroundings basically comes from the right attitude. Being happy comes from an ability to see positives in life (even when you are going through a hard day or negative events). Some might call it being optimistic, but it’s not just being blindly hopeful all the times. Instead, true happiness lies in realizing from within that there is always a brighter side to every situation. All you need to do is practice to see that side and choose to be happy whatever might happen. 2. It can be learnt with practice Against what is generally believed, being happy and an optimist is something you can learn by practice. Once you’ve realized that it’s in your hands to be truly satiated, just keep a conscious check on your negative thoughts. Keep company of positive people and read good books. You can even post small notes in your work area or living room reminding you to abstain from negative and unhappy thoughts. I understand you can’t completely block negativity in your life, but try to pay attention to your reaction to it. You know the famous worry pic. If you have a solution that there’s nothing to worry about. If you don’t, then worry won’t fix anything 🙂 3. All you need is the will power If you settle for nothing less, you will surely achieve it! With the right will power and the belief that you can remain happy if you really …
