Going to sleep at the same time is a necessity. When you go to bed together, you’re promoting healthy relationship patterns.

Find common interests

It’s important to really enjoy spending time together. 

You should have activities that the two of you look forward to doing as a couple. Whether it’s picking a new recipe to try every weekend or going for a run. Find something fun to do consistently together.

Touch

Small gestures like holding hands or putting your arm around each other increases closeness, which is always a factor in the lives of happy couples. 

When you hold hands, you’re subconsciously reminding yourself that you care about each other.

Break routines

Your relationship shouldn’t feel like a routine. Your life as a couple should be unpredictable. 

Embrace spontaneity and surprise each other with fun new activities.

Put your phones away

When you’re together, you should focus entirely on each other. 

Take a break from technology. Social media can all wait until the morning.
