Living together is not always rainbows and unicorns. Spending lives together is a commitment to go through the ups and downs together and sometimes, it might not be that easy. Spending your life with someone can be quite a big challenge. In such times, therapy comes in handy. Whether it is to work on your relationship with each other or if you are going through a rough patch, therapy is something that can always help. However, because the idea of it is so new, the acceptance around it is not much.
There are several exercises you can do with your partner that can help with your relationship. Some of such exercises are-
Work as a team: As you and your partner are ready to make the relationship stronger, you can perform some activities that need you rely on each other and where you need to work like a team. Be it going to the gym or learning a new recipe or playing a new instrument together, both of you can make a list of exercises you would prefer to perform together.
Eliminate the stress trigger: Stress is harmful in every manner, it is associated with negative feelings. If these feelings are prolonged, it can turn into clinical depression and affect your marriage. Instead of bringing up stressful trigger arguments like health status, fertility, financial status, try to solve them.
Do a trust fall: This activity can help you build trust in each other in a fun way. To do a trust fall, one of the partners stands behind their blindfolded spouse. The blindfolded spouse will then deliberately fall backwards and their partner will catch them. This seems easy but it is not. This activity can help to build trust and perfect teamwork.
Write an appreciation letter: After some time, relationships become difficult because of the monotonous lifestyle. This exercise can help you be more appreciative of your partner and you will be reminded of why you fell in love in the first place.
