- Ask your partner how they like to feel appreciated. Write a note or a card, or make an effort to say “thank you” often.
- Let your partner know how you like to be appreciated. Say, “It means a lot to me when you notice the things I do for you.”
- Spend quality time together. It’s easy to transition from face-to-face time together to digital communication. Yet, sometimes meanings can get lost in translation or non-verbal communication becomes non-existent. Spending quality time together can help strengthen your relationship and increase the bond you and your partner feel together.
- Find activities that you can do together regularly. It can be as simple as enjoying a cup of coffee together each morning or reading together at night.
- Trying something new together can be a fun and exciting way to spend time together. You don’t have to do anything crazy — even going out to dinner at a new restaurant or trying a new cuisine can be a fun experience.

A healthy relationship should be one in which you and your partner feel appreciated. Often, relationships are built from many small things added one on top of the other. Find the things your partner does for you and say “thank you.” Instead of focusing on mistakes your partner makes, focus on the ways your partner adds to your life. When you notice something, speak out and show your appreciation.
