How to find happiness in a relationship with a partner?
You can act radically, embarking on a new search. But sometimes, in order for relations to become brighter and play with new colors, it is enough to “dig in” yourself, make a little effort and slightly change your own behavior. As scientists have found out, most people feel happier surrounded by bright and beautiful things. Projecting this knowledge into the sphere of interpersonal relations, the psychologist Emma Kenny on the pages of the British portal shares her practical tips on how to find happiness in a relationship with a partner. Spend time with people you love. Communication with those who are dear, strengthens our self-esteem and reminds us of what connects us with other people. A lot of research on the psychology of relationships confirms that the happiest people are those who find time to communicate with loved ones. Spend more time with the people you love. People who have excellent relationships with their families and friends are ultimately better at creating and maintaining them. This means, firstly, that having met a partner, they are able to transfer the characteristic features of communication with loved ones to new relationships in a pair. Secondly, with the powerful support of loved ones whom we trust, it is easier to cope with negative situations. In general, with significant experience in positive relationships with family and loved ones, it is likely that relationships with other people will work out just as well. Practice mindfulness Yoga, meditation, or any soothing activity that focuses on current sensations and experiences increases happiness. The experience of focusing on current events manifests itself in a relationship with a partner. Do good deeds Devoting half of your life to volunteer work is certainly a good deed. But even a sandwich presented to the oncoming homeless, or a bunch of flowers for an elderly neighbor improves our opinion of ourselves. This is confirmed by a lot of research. The spontaneous manifestation of kindness lifts the mood, enhances self-esteem, demonstrates our connection with the outside world. By sharing your experience with your partner, you will demonstrate this disinterested relationship to him. In response, he is likely to also do something good and good. A mutual demonstration of good deeds and feelings will help to see each other in the most favorable light, which can strengthen mutual love and affection. Smile more often A smile is contagious, but unlike the flu, it is completely harmless. In response to a smile, the partner’s mood will improve, as well as his positive attitude towards who is nearby. Smile, a smile improves your mood for both you and your partner. Make a digital detox. It is very important to break out of technological captivity for at least a day and forget about all the necessary and useful digital gadgets. Give each other a day to get back to basics. Turn off the phones, devote free time to communication, which will be extremely useful for improving well-being and gaining psychological comfort.
