Instead of spending an entire day in silence with your eyes glued to the TV, switch off that television and engage in actual conversation. Talk about each other’s dreams, interests, inspirations and goals. You’d be surprised how much you’d learn about each other.
Get creative in the Kitchen
Couples who cook together stay together! Studies have shown that cooking together is one of the top activities that couples can do to actually strengthen their relationship. In most cases, it’s not about the level of skill but about spending quality time together. Get creative in the kitchen, cook a meal, bake cupcakes or make cocktails, communicate with each other if at all you want to get anything done and enjoy the meal together.
Do something together outdoors
This does not have to be as complex as you imagine. Go for a walk, fishing, hiking or bike riding together. Not only do you get to enjoy some fresh air, but you get to encourage each other while you’re out with nature and this builds a healthier relationship.
Explore and Travel
You can start by visiting a town or city close to you that both of you have been eyeing. Try out new places, restaurants and make memories that you will cherish forever.
Play board games
Studies has found that playing board games and creating art with your significant other releases oxytocin, the love hormone. You have to admit that games can get extremely heated and while you argue over whether the last move made by one partner is even legal, you get to communicate and learn about each other which strengthens the relationship.
Find board games that both of you can enjoy, take a painting or pottery class together. The options are endless.
