All relationships require work if you want them to last, but the most important one you might have is the one with your partner.
At times it can seem like your relationship is a little one-sided and a little unfair.
This can cause unnecessary tension, as well as short-fused arguments.
Is there something that both you and your partner could be doing differently, like being more mindful?
Mindfulness in a relationship means taking that beat, stepping out of yourself. It doesn't have to take lots of "time," it merely means taking a moment for an "I love you" or "just thinking of you" or "that dress makes your eyes look so blue" or simply "thank you."
The dividends of this for both people in the relationship, as well as the relationship itself, are so high.
