“Love is at once an affirmation and a transcendence of who we are.”  – Esther Perel

Are you ready to take your relationship to the next level?

If you want to go for the long haul with your partner, you need to figure out the things you can do on a regular basis to take your relationship from average to incredible.

It’s time to dig in and discover the things that will make you excited to wake up with each other each day and give you the ability to devote yourself to the relationship for the next 50 years.

You signed up for your relationship for a reason, so why not take the steps to maintain and elevate it? On this episode of The Elevated Life®, we’ll be sharing 4 uncommon ways to build a lasting relationship.

How to avoid falling into an unhealthy codependency with your partner

#1 Small Thoughtful Gestures

If you tap into your partner’s needs, you’ll discover things that might not be a big deal to you, but can mean a lot to them. We’ve found that people forget to appreciate their partner after they’ve been together for a while, so it’s important to make it an intentional practice!

Figuring out the most meaningful gestures is a two-part process:

Step 1: Make it a point to determine what your partner needs from you at the present time. Are they super busy this week? Why not cook a yummy dinner or take over some household chores?

Step 2: For ongoing thoughtfulness, determine your partner’s Love Language. (We highly recommend this book.) We’ve realized that I love to give and receive gifts, while Chris values quality time.

#2 Enjoy Mundane Things Together

At the beginning of a relationship, everything seems fresh and new! As time goes on, you begin to settle into more of a routine, so it’s important to bring some joy to everyday moments.

If going on trips or fancy dates is the only time you’re connecting with your partner, you won’t be setting yourself up for long term success. When you can find intimacy and joy in cleaning the house or going on walks, it will help you resist the urge to look outside of your relationship for validation. 

#3 Check in With Each Other

Chris and I check in with each other to “Update the Rules.” We chat about how communication is going and whether we’re on track and in sync with our sex life, meal prep, and yoga practice. 

It’s important to note: we never use this time to attack each other! The question you should ask your partner during these check-ins is: “On a scale from 1-10, how would you rate the last week and what can we do to make it better?”

#4 Give Your Partner Personal Space

Togetherness is super important, but it can lead to an unhealthy codependency. Remember that your partner needs room to grow!

Chris and I have made mornings our alone time. While we both have made spiritual development a priority in our life, we express it in different ways. Chris has gone down more of a Eastern philosophy, meditation, and yoga path while I was more interested in crystals, rituals, and tarot cards. Now we can explore our own paths, and then come back together and share it with each other.

Inside The Elevated Life Club:

Jim Rohn famously said you’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.

Said in another way, “if you show me your friends, I’ll show you your future”.

That’s great…if you’re surrounded by amazing people all the time.

If the people around us inspire our growth, talk about positive outcomes, offer genuine feedback and encourage us, we typically succeed. We develop better, healthier habits, our self-worth and self-esteem raises, and our intellect gets stimulated.

But, if those you’re closest to have a negative mindset, if their words reflect scarcity and limits, if they look at the world with a constant half-empty attitude, it’s easy to adopt their beliefs and find yourself not only thinking the same way but repeating it to others as well.

Long term negative relationships, including the ones we carry over from childhood, breed toxicity into the fertile fields of our mind.

In this training, we’re going to help you build healthy relationships.

Whether you want to let go of past heartaches, become a better parent or spouse, or attract a partner to share your life with, it all starts with the right mindset shifts.
