Relationship coaches often talk about the reward of the act of giving of yourself. While it can sometimes be difficult to find activities that you both enjoy, don’t let that stop you from spending quality time together.

2. LISTEN TO UNDERSTAND YOUR PARTNER
This is also referred to as active listening. Relationships coaches often hear the complaint from their clients that their partner “doesn’t listen to me.” Great life coaches have seen remarkable transformations occur, when each partner engages in this style of communication with the intent of understanding. Active listening is fundamental to understanding your partner’s needs and experiences while also helping you grow closer as a couple. Set aside one day a week to put a meal together. Try active listening as you cook together. This is a great and easy low-stakes way to improve communication. Instead of listening for the purpose of replying to them and enjoy the dividends of active listening.
3. PUT DOWN YOUR MOBILE DEVICE
A recent study concluded that most people are never more than 10 feet away from their mobile device. Another study also shows that cell phone use negatively affects relationships and limiting couples’ communication skills. Finding quality time with your partner can be a challenge, don’t sabotage it by staring at your phone. Relationship coaches recommend setting ground rules, such as mobile device and Internet free times and zones in the home.

4. LEARN SOMETHING NEW TOGETHER
Choose a topic that both of you have an interest in and learn more about it. If you both like to read, get a book on the topic. Reading a book together doesn’t necessarily mean that you sit and read to each other out loud-although that might be fun. Simply reading the same book or even just reading different books at the same time has been shown to improve relationships according to relationship coaches. Research indicates that couples grow closer by exploring and sharing new ideas, so it’s important that you take the time to discuss what you are reading. If reading isn’t your thing, try finding other mind-stimulating experiences you can share together, such as listening to and then discussing the same podcast.
5. FIGHT FAIRLY, DON’T DRUDGE UP UNRELATED ISSUES
There is a misconception that happy couples don’t have disagreements. Having conflicts in a relationship is a natural and vital part of them. Without them resentments can simmer, even about seemingly inconsequential things and emotional blockages can form. The key, according to many relationship coaches, is to make sure that you “fight fair.” Remain calm, be specific about what is bothering you, without bringing up unrelated issues of the past, avoid accusations, and take responsibility for your part.
6. SCHEDULE TIME TOGETHER
Relationship coaches often agree that planning a regular date night will keep the fire simmering. It’s important to plan regular formal dates and shared experiences. The novelty factor of planned date nights helps improve couples’ communication and sense of attachment. While it may be difficult to schedule a weekly date night, make an effort to still plan, at the very least, a monthly date where you spend time together outside of the home even if it’s making a meal together.
