                                              It’s easy to feel small and alone in such a big, scary world, but it just means that you have more space to grow.

                                                Privilege without responsibility always equals corruption. As always, nothing worthwhile is ever easy.

                                                  Things can sometimes move a little too fast, and it can be suffocating. Nothing beats the feeling of breaking free. It just takes a bit of courage.

                                                    The secret to youth and prosperity is the unrelenting desire to learn. Whenever you’re feeling down, go find out something you’ve never known before. It might help to remind you how little of this world you’ve experienced.

                                                      Sadness is temporary, as is every emotion. So don’t worry, the sun will come out again eventually.

                                                              Mahatma Gandhi once said:

                                                              “The world is big enough to satisfy everyone’s needs, but will always be too small to satisfy everyone’s greed.”

                                                              So remember, it’s a large world for reasons that matter.

                                                              How to Spend More Quality Time with Your Partner

                                                              How to Spend More Quality Time with Your Partner

                                                              You see your partner every single day. They are the first person you talk to in the morning and the last person you kiss goodnight.

                                                              But does seeing each other day in and day out equal a healthy relationship? Not necessarily.

                                                              Spending quality time with your partner is the best way to ensure your relationship stays healthy and strong. This means going above and beyond sitting together while you watch Netflix or going out for the occasional dinner. You deserve more from your relationship – and so does your spouse!

                                                              What does quality time mean? It means spending time with your spouse without interruption. It’s a chance for you to come together and talk. Communication will build emotional intimacy and trust.

                                                              Quality time is also about expressing love in a physical way. Not sex, necessarily (but that’s great, too!) but through hand-holding, cuddling, caressing, and tickling. Studies show that these displays of affection will boost partner satisfaction.[1]

                                                              So how do you spend quality time with your partner? Here are 13 relationship tips on making the most out of your time with your partner.

                                                              1. Recognize the Signs

                                                              If you want a healthy relationship, you have to learn how to recognize the signs that you need to spend more quality time together.

                                                              Some telltale signs include:

                                                              • You’re always on your phones.
                                                              • You value friendships or hobbies over quality time with your spouse.
                                                              • You aren’t together during important events.
                                                              • You are arguing more often or lack connection.
                                                              • You don’t make plans or date nights.
                                                              • You’re not happy.

                                                              If you are experiencing any of these relationship symptoms, know that quality time together can reverse the negative effects of the signs above.

                                                              2. Try New Things Together

                                                              Have you ever wanted to learn how to play an instrument or speak another language? How about skydive or ballroom dance?

                                                              Instead of viewing these as solo hobbies and interests, why not involve your partner?

                                                              Trying new activities together builds healthy relationships because it encourages spouses to rely on one another for emotional and physical support.

                                                              Advertising

                                                              Shared hobbies also promote marital friendship, and the Journal of Happiness Studies found that marital satisfaction was twice as high for couples who viewed each other as best friends.[2]

                                                              3. Schedule in Tech-Free Time

                                                              Your phone is a great way to listen to music, watch videos, and keep up-to-date with friends and family. But is your phone good for your relationship?

                                                              Many couples phone snub, or ‘phub’, one another. Studies show that phubbing can lower relationship satisfaction and increase one’s chances of depression.[3]

                                                              Reduce those chances by removing distractions when spending quality time together and showing your partner they have your full attention.

                                                              4. Hit the Gym as a Couple

                                                              One way you can spend more time together as a couple is by becoming workout partners. Studies show that couples are more likely to stay with their exercise routine if they work out together.[4] Couples also work out harder than they would solo. One study found that 95 percent of couples who work out together maintained weight loss compares to the 66 percent of singles who did.[5]

                                                              Join a gym, do at-home couples’ workouts, try couples yoga, hit the hiking trails, or get your bikes out. No matter which way you choose to exercise, these healthy activities can promote a healthy relationship.

                                                              Pop open a bottle of wine or put some romantic music on while you get busy – in the kitchen, of course!

                                                              One of the best relationship tips for spending quality time together when you both have busy schedules is to cook meals together.[6]

                                                              Spice things up and try and prepare a four-course meal or a fancy French dish together. Not only is this a fun way to spend your time together, but it also promotes teamwork.

                                                              If all goes well, you’ll have a romantic date night meal at home that you prepared with your four hands. And if the food didn’t turn out the way you’d hoped, you are guaranteed to have a laugh and create new memories together.
